    Morning all!

    lt started snowing here when we were in the pub last night, & it's still snowing now, although there's only a fine layer on the ground.

    l will be spraying on some Cinema before wrapping up warm for the walk to work.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Morning All,

    Wearing Cadjméré quite by accident (grabbed the wrong atomiser; intended to wear Cuir de Russie).
    Snow flurries here too, and bitterly cold.

    Have a good Monday, folks.

    The R.Piguet Mademoiselle again, but over the mango body lotion...it does coordinate well, certainly. I dunno, it is nice and I'm enjoying so glad for the sample but thinking not something that I would buy.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good afternoon everyone. Silences today. A rare blind buy for me but it wasn't exactly a big risk. Yes, I like it. It chimes with the same tone as Cabochard.

    Good Luck with the bathroom re-modelling PL. Ours is almost finished and I'm loving it!

    southerngardens - I believe you're the very first person to comment on Prélude since I've been here! Strangely enough, I was absolutely thrilled when it was released because it reminded me of a favorite scent from childhood, Avon's original SkinSoSoft, which is a bath oil and skincare line that I've always loved, and I'd been searching for a similar perfume. Well, the similarity is so striking that I felt like I'd hit the jackpot! From reviews I've read, people seem to be drawn to its amber base, but my favorite parts are the fresh, herbal-green and outdoorsy top and middle notes, and I always layer it with my SSS oil or lotion to extend them (and if you're not already familiar with SSS I highly recommend you check it out.) At any rate, you chose well - it's a fantastic unisex fragrance!

    Like ExtremeK, we got a whole ung*dly ton of snow -- think Snowglobe USA blizzard -- and I could not make it home from work, it is only a bit over a mile but would have been a treacherous walk. So, I spent a night at work (finish at 2230 and start a new shift at 0630 did not help coming home either), and am posting only now. A kind Samaritan -- I know him too -- came on a large John Deere and scooped us up, said "Sorry it took me so long, I started getting phone calls at 4 in the morning". So, today we are slowly melting and expecting tons of mud.

    Thanks E on your kind words about Eau de Protection. After a bath and a nap -- 1 whole hour! -- I changed into Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn to smell just like 30R.

    LOL Mike!! She's been referring to the stitches as "zipper".
    At my request the Dr. gave her a referral for PT for her shoulder, and she starts that tomorrow. Initially I was worried that she might have a rotator cuff injury, but her range of motion is gradually increasing. I think it's just sore tissues and bruising.

    Twolf, that is some adventure you had! In any case, you and I smell marvelous!

    Posting late today as I had a hair appointment in Grand Forks at noon. The roads were terrible when I started out, pure ice, they slowly improved and it turned out to be a sunny and warm day, with a high of 25F. Well, warm for Minnesota in March, lol. I checked out the local TJ Maxx and they finally had C & E Evelyn, they are very slow to get what other stores have. So this afternoon for a short spell I was scent triplets with 30Roses and Twolf. I don't know why I have such a hankering for rose lately, but I do. I'm sure it will shortly be exchanged for gardenia and frangipani, so I'll just enjoy it while it lasts.

    SotE is Dior Addict.

    Have a nice evening!
