    Default SOTD Thursday, March 14

    Hello everyone and thank you for all your lovely anniversary wishes! John and I enjoyed a cozy dinner at home last night.

    SOTD is Gabriele Strehle Strenesse.

    Wish you all a very good day.

    Morning All,

    Jon - I was really sorry to hear yesterday that 'your' place on the Isles of Scilly has gone under. I really feel for those who are losing their jobs, too.

    One thing and another kept me up till the wee small hours, so I'm a bit scattered today. Weirdly, went with a sample of Molecule 01. There's something that keeps drawing me back to it...

    Have a great Thursday, gang.

    Good morning. Retrieved a package from the Post Office, chock full of wonderful fragrance-related goodies and went overboard last night: Jo Malone Red Roses+YSL Paris Premieres Roses+Chanel 1932. Many many thanks to a kind BN friend, and honestly -- I do not know what I woulda, coulda and shoulda done without the whole community.

    A friend stopped by and shared our supper -- was first time eating couscous for him, he said not the last time either (mind you, most men our age in this area are habitual and non-adventurous eaters: potatoes, meat and bread type, skip the veggies please, you all know them LOL).

    Today I am wearing the new(er) Lancome La Vie est Belle -- another yet pleasant variation on Euphoria/John Varvatos/Coco Mademoiselle theme, not bad at all.

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in Paco Rabanne Metal, vintage edt. Y'all have a good day!




    Happy Birthday to dear ((Baldufita)), just in case you peek in ...but you'd better say "hello" if you do! I hope you've been very well and having a fabulous time, especially today.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    A belated Happy Birthday to all of our celebrants. Have a wonderful and fragrant year each and every one! Happy Anniversary to the tdems. Here's to many more!

    Well G, you and I agree about the Molecule One. It is just a great smell, haunting, ghostly, woody, Iris-y. I can't help but like it too.

    Jon, sorry to hear your bad news yesterday. You sounded really down in the dumps.

    Dunno today. This and that.

    Good morning and happy Pi day to everyone. Somewhat appropriately scented in Mure et Musc Extreme, I sure missed this while I didn't have it. I am not a scent monogamist (obviously) but if I were, well, poly I guess, this is one of my regulars. It's just such a good balance and safe for work.

    Happy Thursday all.

    Quarry, I loved reading your post last night, dreaming of England. I watch all those programs too, dreaming of a day I could relocate to somewhere exotic, warm, exciting, instead of dreary winter skies for months upon months. I also wish I had the funds to just travel as I desired. No way should I complain, since I do have a company trip down the Blue Danube in May. But I so long to see London, Paris, Tuscany, Rome, Egypt, China, I could go on and on. I guess I will need to start playing the lottery

    My scent today is Kelly Calèche by Hermès. I haven't worn it in quite a while and right now it's at the stage where you wonder "hmmm, why did I need a full bottle rather than just a decant/sample".

    lucasai, we will be thinking of you. Be sure to get a good night's sleep tonight and eat a balanced breakfast before leaving home in the morning. Carbs for the brain, protein and fat to make the energy last, fluids to keep you hydrated.

    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..."

    Lucasi, best of luck on your exam!! I will be thinking of you. Deep breaths, don't panic, once panic set in, my mind would freeze up. I always would take a deep breath, say a prayer, remind myself that all would be ok, then flip over the exam and start.

    You can do it!! We will be cheering you on

    Chanel 31 rue Cambon for me today, since I skipped it yesterday with a waivering hand.

    Twolf, any thoughts on the 1932? I really like it as an easy wear scent. It will be a spring and summer staple I think.

    Trying to hurry spring along with Caron Fleurs de Rocaille. This wasn't love at first sniff—florals seldom are for me—but three days in I am blissed out by it's springy vibe. Lots of muguet to this nose.

    I suppose we just have to be philosophical under the current economic climate and accept that these things will happen. I have spoken with one or two friends there already and they have other irons in the fire, so there is some hope for a a potential silver lining.

    Good luck lucasai!

    Got COLD again last night / this morning. Had to meet Comcast at my new place, 1st thing in the morning, to install internet (so I can go on BN when I am home!) and I had the incorrect modem/router (damnit!) but we came up with a resolution and I have internet tonight. Yay!

    Busy day at the office, then the gym, then dinner with a friend, then a massage tonight.
