    Morning all!

    l've got a couple of days off, heading out to run a few errands in Ginger Ciao by Yosh, a sample from the back of the wardrobe.

    Good morning!

    30Roses, I was so happy to hear your mother is feeling better! You're right, sleep is restorative. Glad you are feeling the effects as well

    I am testing Impossible Iris today. I'm not sure what's impossible about it, because to me it's just as pretty as can be.

    Good morning! A while back a very kind Basenoter sent me a package of decants of lily of the valley/muguet fragrances and I am now finally enjoying working my way through them. So far, I really like Santa Maria Novella's Mughetta for a straightforward, pure, simple lily of the valley. It is very well done. And I was impressed with Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Lilia Bella - naturally, as it's discontinued - as a mughet/lily/floral blend for its pretty, fleshy lushness. Today, I'm not sure which one I'll sample, but it will be mughet/lily of the valley this morning for me.



    It's Penhaligon's Lily of the Valley this morning.

    Great morning starting here in central Florida. Promises to be beautiful weather. Today i am trying to recreate the smell of an "oriental lily". Stunningly beautiful flower a friend treated me to a few weeks ago. The fragrance projects about 40 feet on each flower. I can seriously smell it from the driveway. Here is a pic. Have a great day!

    I haven't decided on a fragrance for today.

    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.

    Good morning everyone!

    My first training session for tutoring basic reading with Literacy Volunteers is this evening. I find myself looking forward to getting back into literacy work.

    I'm joining Lilybelle in wearing a lily of the valley scent today-- using a sample of the reformulated Muguet by Annick Goutal, which is rather grassy. It is not as accurate as the old version was but is fresher. (Lilybelle, would you like a sample of this?)

    ((30Roses)), I'm glad to hear that you found an inexpensive solution to your mom's shoulder pain. That has to be such a relief for everyone. I think interrupted sleep is a lot worse for a person than any of us realizes....

    No snow here, just cold and rainy, but parts of the metro area other than where I live were hit with 4" diameter hail last night. Ugh.

    Hello again -

    I'm in Chanel Beige for the afternoon ...yet another Chanel that I'm learning to love after a rather lukewarm introduction. But I really shouldn't be surprised - it just took a few wearings to have me wondering what in the world I was thinking. This is so very lovely. ♥

    30 Roses, you are so sweet, thank you! I've got plenty on my plate at the moment, however. I wouldn't impose on you. I am a volunteer literacy tutor as well, did you know that? I really enjoy it, even more than I thought I would.

    Happy Belated Birthday to Arewen Elf and Mr. Q.!

    Mike, you are a very nice person. xo

    I'm trying Bulgari Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise this afternoon. I'm not sure this is for me after all. I loooooved it on a card. On skin, I'm not so sure. There's something about it I love, and there's somethig else in there that annoys me. I hate when that happens.

    Yes, Lilybelle, Twolf mentioned it recently-- but I didn't know if you were tutoring basic reading or ESL. I tutored ESL with the same organization back in the mid 1990s.

    It's basic reading, and I do have one student whose first language is not English, so he sorta qualifies as ESL. He speaks English pretty well, though. He just needs to learn to read it and write it competently. The others are at various levels. They teach me, too! Yesterday while I was explaining the term "long shanks" to a student I learned there is another definition for "shank" it is a homemade weapon made in prison. I didn't ask how he knew that.

    Mon Jasin Noir L'Eau Exquise gets better with hours on skin. It was a little harsh at first, but I like the drydown. I don't know whether I will buy a bottle. I have a couple of samples coming and they will probably suffice for my short attention span. I still want a modern, light, crisp, green, floral fragrance to live in this summer. I'll keep looking. When I asked to the SA whether I could spray on some Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise earlier today she looked at me blankly for a good few seconds, and then she said in amazement, "Wooowww! You pronounced that soooo nicely!" I thought that was funny. I told her "so many years' languages in school and that's about all I can do in French." It's sort of sad that department store SAs don't know much of anything about fragrance and can barely pronounce them either, though I admit that one is a long name. She did say that Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise has been flying off the shelves. That and Omni Coral. That was my big department store trip today, which was actually to buy B-belle some clothes, as I am his personal shopper since he won't shop for himself and goes around in clothes a bum wouldn't wear.
