    Thumbs up SOTD Friday Narch 15, 2013

    Good Morning everyone. Have all a Fantastic day

    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 morning!

    Roberto, your pic matches our weather today, but TGIF, it's been a long week!

    Wearing vintage Shalimar EDC today, from a precious decant.

    Have a great Friday, everyone!

    Good morning to all!

    No SotD yet-- I'm going to shut my eyes again for a bit until the pediatrician's office opens. My daughter twisted her knee and fell during gym yesterday afternoon just before coming home, and I got a call from the school nurse.

    We followed the typical RICE protocol for acute injuries (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, plus an NSAID to reduce inflammation) but today it's swollen and more painful, so I'm going to try to see of the Dr. can squeeze her in, and meanwhile she's home.

    C'est la vie.

    update: Jour de Fête today.

    Oh poor her! Get some rest 30R, it's most likely sprained, but best to get it checked out. Youve done the best thing by implementing RICE.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in Chanel 1932 this morning, which is still surprising and delighting me ...I can't believe how quickly this has become an everyday favorite. I love it. ♥

    Y'all have a great day!



    Safe and happy travels Jon - have a great time!

    30 R - best wishes for the rosebud.

    As prolific as Duchaufour and Ropion have been, I can grow affection for only Mechant Loup and Angel Innocent. La Vie est Belle, which Twolf loves at first sniff, was hate at first sniff for me. I am continually in awe of Twolf's analytical nose and brilliant mind and can only assume we are hardwired differently for detecting and being attracted to scent molecules. How wonderful that there are thousands of fragrances from which to find our own personally tailored pleasures. C'est la vie, indeed.

    Carry on 30Roses and all who work to make today a better day for someone else. Hugs all around.

    A wave of the hanky to Jon upon his departure.

    The L'eau de Tarocco I applied liberally late yesters still lingers, so I'm going to ride that out for a while.

    I am having another Mure et Musc Extreme day, have the Mechant Loup, like it, and was going to synch but mmm comfy instead.

    30Roses, ay yi you are definitely squeezed between the generations. Take care of yourself and remember it's a season, and it is wonderful that you get to spend these years with your mom and daughter, so hard but you can't get them back....

    30Roses, hope all goes well with the knee!

    Lucasi, how did the exam go? I'm eagerly awaiting good news!

    ExtremeK, any traveling bug being given out is strictly Quarry's fault! See how good I am at shifting blame? I can't imagine shopping for perfumes in France, but Quarry, you are exactly right. We would have a blast. I'm still really really hoping for that Grasse trip in 2014 that's been tossed about a bit.

    I am wearing Chergui today, and now I feel that I need to go to Home Depot. Thanks Mike!

    Happy Friday to all and safe travels Jon!

    Duchaufour's Dzongkha by L'Artisan

    Like Mike, I am revisiting a fragrance that I did not care for in the past. I actually blind bought a bottle several years ago, but found the opening too harsh and acrid for my liking. Today, I am enjoying this much, much more. I won't say love, but this is a spicy little iris incense combo that sits just fine with me. Thanks to a special BNer, (Whitefluffy), for allowing a second chance for this fragrance with me. Thank you dear

    Twolf, saw your 1932 comments. I found likewise Still need to explore this one more, but I immediately knew I would hughly enjoy this one all spring and summer.
    And, obviously, Mrs. E is smitten

    Good Morning (Afternoon), everyone!

    Unbeknownst to myself I am for once in synch on Friday in Duchafour's (L'artisan's) Vanille Absolument



    30 Roses, you just can't quite catch a break! I hope your daughter's healing will be fast and painless.

    Cello, I am so happy that you gave Dzongkha another chance. It wasn't love from first sniff for me either, I almost drained a sample before I realized that I need it.

    I am VERY curious about 1932. It would be nice if Chanel had sample program or added samples from Exlusifs range with the Exlusifs order, but no, horde of Coco Noir will do nicely as far as they concerned.

    I will be throwing few bits and pieces together too, for our camping trip to the lake. When that will take place will depend on the graciousness of UPS who holds Aldehyde 44 hostage at the moment.

    This morning the mail brought the second of two parcels from Surrender to Chance, and I explained to Mr. Q how one decantress lives in Denver and the other here in SE Wis., each of whom possesses certain collections of fragrances. I further said, "I wish I could see that decanting process -- the variety and quantities of perfumes in attendance, the number of vials and pipettes lying about, the smells inherited from years of decanting." So today's fantasy surrounds not so much the sparkle of Chicago's Nordstrom or the lavender hills of France as it does the dedicated pantries of the smart ladies who satisfy us so well.

    Now, I am not opening my StC packages for a week as Mr. Q and our rockette will be going out of town for a few days, and I will then be alone with my senses. Anticipation is more than half the fun.

    Well, we're pretty much ready for the off here - just deciding on a few decants. Will be checking in from Scandinavian soil over the next couple of days with a warming glass of Aquavit alongside .
    Tonight however, the corkscrew is itching for some action

    Back for a little bit before heading out again to the orthotist. There is enough swelling that the Dr. wants her to be fitted for a knee immobilizer. She's gotten a pass for the elevator at the high school as well, and is not allowed to participate in gym class for several weeks, to be extended if necessary.

    Then next week she is supposed to see an orthopedic specialist, as she may (possibly) have torn her meniscus or a ligament. I'm hoping it won't be that. She actually dislocated her patella yesterday-- popped out, then in-- and she had another incident with the same knee 2 years ago during gym class-- so it does seem to be an area of weakness for her.

    lucasai, how did the exam go?
