    Sorry, I'm not in synch today ... I'm wearing Fumerie Turque. It's cold and dreary here with possible snow later. I'm not feeling a Spring-like frag today. I'm home again today with lots of basketball games to watch! Go Jayhawks!

    Happy Anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. ladymurasaki!

    Happy Anniversary to M'Lord and M'Lady.

    30Roses, you darn sweet soul, sharing samples, taking care of your family, you are a giver. I hope you reap rewards in whatever way is meaningful to you.

    DAY ONE: HOME-ALONE STAYCATION

    Husband (Dan Savin) and daughter (Mandy Savin) are in Connecticut for the Savin Rock Half Marathon & 5K. Guess why they chose this event.

    Staycation supplies laid in: Pre de Provence peony soap, Surrender to Chance samples, Netflix movies and series queued, my first-ever issue of Vogue(picked up at Half-Price Books for $1.57) on hand. Lastly, I have audio CDs recently sent from a cousin who interviewed my mom in 2001, a couple months before Mom passed away. I think this is the weekend to hear her voice again. We'll see.

    I'll shower when I'm damn well ready, eat what and when I please, nap like the cat if I feel like it. WHEN I feel like applying scent, it will be one of the following new experiences -- or all of them at once. My prerogative.

    • Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris

    The weather will be warming up for their run, Quarry. 40s tomorrow and sunny; Sunday will also be nice-- high of 45.

    Nothing smells like spring more than lilacs in my mind, so I am in sync with Pur Desir de Lilas.

    Best of luck, Ine


    Staying in synch for the evening with Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate.








    Looks like our planned sniffathon for tomorrow will be put on hold until next weekend as the snow is starting to fall heavily here and is forecast to do so for most of the night. Attempting public transport is likely to be more trouble than it's worth. Battening down the hatches instead and opening a bottle or two (chianti )


    Stay safe and warm, everyone.

    Just showered and decided to stay with the lilacs in a sample of Ineke After my own Heart. I've enjoyed the lilacs today.

    Have a lovely weekend everyone, especially you Quarry.

    Ah, Quarry, it sounds like you are set to take full advantage of your stay-cation. Good for you! Know that I'm sending hugs and thoughts of peace your way as you contemplate those audio CDs. If you're ready, you'll know it. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on your samples

    G, you're cracking me up today!

    I think I need to explore Entre Naranjos more fully with a decant. 1873 just isn't doing it for me.

    In other news, I've found another iris that I really like!! Will wonders never cease?!

    I'm sampling Parfums DelRae Mythique this afternoon, and I'm LOVING it!! Notes are mandarin, Italian bergamot, ivy, peony, jasmin concrete, Florentine orris butter, sandalwood, patchouli, and ambrette musk. The orris butter is full and fleshy and wears almost like suede -- in fact, I recognize that same iris/suede combination from Daim Blond, but Mythique is much less sweet and more iris-y. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Chanel No. 19 is my scent of the day, but I'm wearing a spritz of Aventus on my arm. Holy god, it's strong.

    Nefret, are you, by any chance, an Elizabeth Peters fan?

    SOTD is Hermes Eau des Merveilles.

    Hey again -

    I'm in Noir de Noir for the evening, and I'm very excited to be joining friends I haven't seen since college for a typical NOLA night out: crawfish, cocktails and live jazz. Excellent.

    Good evening to all!


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality.

    Lady Grinning Soul, yes. Nefret is not the usual moniker I use for things, but it was the first one that came to mind that wasn't taken, and I don't find it objectionable. Haven't read the latest however many books, though.

    ExtremeK, if I tell you my decant smells like pineapple and fairy magic, can you narrow it down for me?

    Gimme a minute while I consult the 30-page thread on the men's side. The answer's bound to be there somewhere.

    Nefret, I'm very fond of (the character) Nefret. Ramses too. So much so that I named a pair of my alpacas after them. I haven't read the last few books in the series, either, but I've reread most of the earlier ones several times.
