    My husband was up in Dundee on business yesterday and told me it was
    raining cats and dogs!
    It is a mixture of sun and showers here in Shropshire so I will wear Rive Gauche
    and travel with an umbrella close to hand.

    Yeah, it is nice and sunny everywhere (NYC boasts 70F I heard?) and we are having 3 to 5" accumulation of snow and ice pellets. With gusts of wind. Really? Still smiling thinking that they are opening a swimming pool at ExteremeK's in two weeks, 3 hours south of us.

    Morning all!

    Un Matin d'Orage today, layered with the gorgeous body cream sent by a particularly lovely basenoter. (You know who you are, & thanks again! ) For me, wearing this means that it is now officially spring.

    A mixture of sunshine & cloud here today, along with some high winds & a chance of rain.

    Peace & love to all.

    Wow Twolf! I was going to complain about the rain here. But snow?! Actually we're having some pretty bad flooding due to the weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks...errr, someone stop me ... of rain. The river is going to crest at an all time high this weekend. The highest was back in 1985, and it's expected to be 3' over that high. Roads are washed out, people are having to evacuate, and our store basement is in danger of becoming a pool.

    Also, Twolf, thanks for the encouragement to buy I'm going to be in Budapest-Vienna-Regensburg in May and I figured a great way to commemorate my first European trip would be to buy a fragrance. That way I'd always remember the trip. My top runners are OJ Woman, MFK Cologne por le Soir, Mona di Orio something. I have some more sampling to do before I go, so any and all suggestions are welcome. I'm intending to splurge with my tax return, but even so, I think the Mona di Orio's Oud is just too out of control expensive.

    Evangeline, I got a kick out of all the Chanel tennis outfits yesterday! Now I'm going to need to try the Beige too!

    Lilybelle, I'm glad you're adjusting to selling the house. What an emotional rollercoaster that would be for me. Good luck sorting through all the stuff, deciding what to keep. In the end, they're only things, but oh, how each one seems to carry a memory as you're trying to decide. Hopefully it will be a treasure chest of good ones for you.

    Today I'm wearing the MFK Cologne por le Soir. Hope you all have a great day!

    Try to do something to get yourself out of the funk. Music, maybe, if fragrance won't do the trick today.

    Well, it's still early but it's already promising to be a gloriously sunny day here ...quite warm, too. I'm in Belle de Soleil by Fragonard.

    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Hehe, the first one was actually a swimsuit - Jon was just teasing me. But you should definitely give Beige a sniff ...I'm not so sure it would be so great on-court, but it's perfect for the beach.


    Oh ((kalli)), I'm sorry for whatever's troubling you ...hoping you discover a bright light at the end of a very short tunnel.

    Lilybelle, what an adventure! Good for both of you, just deciding to take the plunge. Being able to *embrace* a change like that really helps, I think, in managing around the craziness it often brings. I love your approach to it all! I'll be very interested to hear about the places you see as you're looking for your new digs.

    LOL, Twolf! Isn't it crazy? We don't have snow here (yet), just lots of chilly rain, which we admittedly need. But, yes, I'm left shaking my head over the May 1st pool opening. Also, how do you find Debut? I think it's lovely, but on me it wears rather cold -- it keeps me at a distance. Sort of like a riot of too-perfect white flowers behind glass ... not the glass of a florist's refrigerator case, but museum glass. Where they smell *exactly* like what a riot of white flowers should smell like but almost too perfectly to be sure they're real. Gah, I don't know. I'm probably not making sense. In any event, I want to like Debut, but I can't warm up to it.

    Carrying on with my violets-for-a-rainy-day theme from yesterday and the day before (both Bois de Violette) with today's Arquiste Aleksandr.

    Kalli - I am right there with you, at the end of my emotional rope. Let's help each other to claw our way back to sunshine, shall we?

    I am wearing a cacophony of scents today, Roseberry by Rosine being the most prominent. Nope, too much musk that Kalli and I can't stand, lol.

    PerfumedLady - I am so thrilled that you agree with me on the "beautifully crafted." His whole line is like that - truly beautifully crafted. I will take his fragrance over Amouage (except Ubar) any time.

    Beautiful picture, Kiliwia! I just want to bury my nose in these luscious pink petals.

    You know, Madison Keys is an up-and-coming US pro who actually started playing just because she wanted a tennis dress, so you wouldn't be the first! It's true though - tennis togs can be pretty darn cute, and I especially love the dresses, although most everybody plays in shorts these days. But I'll pass your message along to Tony ...I'm sure he'll be most appreciative!

    lilybelle - I just read your posts from a couple days ago about you & hubby selling the house. Wow, I know exactly the stress you're feeling. Just remember, you are well taken care of. You will always be taken care of. Everything is just fine. ((bear hugs))
    TWolf - I cannot believe you still have ice & snow...just...wow!
    Happy Birthday strollyourlobster, wherever you may be strolling!

    I was so busy yesterday I forgot to post to the Wednesday SOTD thread. What's up with that? I wore Shalimar Ode de la Vanille and Eau de Shalimar in the late afternoon. Today its:

    Shalimar (vintage parfum) by Guerlain



    It does NOT get better than this ladies & gents. Seriously. I went easy on the application today (I prefer to douse myself in the vintage parfum when I wear it, because I'm crazy like that) since...you know...I'm working at an office where actual people are around and might be choked by my sillage. There really is just no comparison to this juice. I've smelled vintage Emeraude, vintage Bal a Versailles, vintage Opium parfum...but none of them can hold a candle to vintage Shalimar parfum.
