Hope Monday is treating you kindly.
Bois des Iles (EdT) today. Tonight I'm seeing Mozart's Magic Flute and will wear Habit Rouge.
Best to all.
Started with Olfactive Studio Lumière Blanche, got a very negative reaction from my beloved one , scrubbed it away and had the excuse to liberally spray on some Dyptique Vinaigre de Toilette to chase away every trace!
Have nice Monday!

Enjoy, Gandhajala! And Habit Rouge is a great choice for it.
Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude, easy and pretty for a Monday.
Wish you all a good start to the week!

Good morning !. Arquiste L'Etrog to usher in the working week.

Hello all. Bottega Veneta
I'm wearing Cartier Baiser Volé to start a busy week with friends visiting from Hawai'i. They'll be staying for a month. Will probably have less time to go online...
Have a great week, everyone

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 everyone! I've been battling the flood waters since Friday so unable to check in. Our warehouse went unscathed (after we put in a full weekend of moving materials up off the floor) but our store has 3' of water in the basement. Customers are calling non-stop with water in THEIR basements, so we can definitely empathize. It's going to be a hectic week, but it would have been much worse with 20,000SF of warehouse underwater as was originally forecast. We wound up cresting 2' lower than expected due to the rain on Friday missing us. That's truly a miracle, and we are so thankful.
I had a chance to catch up on all the SOTD threads this morning, and I have to say that's one of the most pleasant parts of my day. You all are just such a lovely bunch, and it's great to read. Jon, thanks for all the gorgeous pictures! Oh, and was that Evangeline posting the pictures of the beach? My parents have a condo in Destin and it just brings me right there. It's stunning with the zing of the blue water and the white sugar sand beaches. ExtremeK, I'm sorry the Peovine Rose didn't work for you, but I'm so intrigued by this one now that I'm going to order a sample. How kind of PerfumedLady to take it off your hands. Give me an excuse ... have you got some Ormonde Jayne Woman you can hate on, or perhaps some Mona di Orio? :P
Anyway, hugs to everyone all around for giving me a great start to my day.
Today I'm a scent twin with ladymurasaki. I'm sampling Cartier Baiser Volé and I really like this one.
I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.
Trying Dans Tes Bras today.
Take Care all.
Earth Day = Weil de Weil. Very, very, very green. Happy Monday to all.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Penhaligon Douro Eau de Portugal today
Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
Like days of old. Lighting the spark of love that fills me
with dreams untold..--Twilight Time
Good morning, everyone!
Back home now, back to ballet and back in '32 ...I actually missed this last week. ♥
It sounds like you have yet another fantastic evening planned, gandhajala - have a great time!
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
House synching with Mrs. E today to start the week - Chanel 31 rue Cambon for me.

Thanks, Tdem & Mrs. E !

Today I am wearing one of my newest creations "Root and Resin". It starts with an aldehydic green Galbanum and Litsea accord and moves into light Jasmine, Moroccan Rose and Gingergrass paired with Opoponax, Myrrh Morocco, and 3 types of Frankincense (Carteri, Serrata, Frereana) . The base is rooty Vetivers (Haitian and Indian), Labdanum, Nagarmotha and an Amber accord of my own design. I find it quite refreshing. Have a great day!
Elizrj, it's good so see you, too! I'm glad that the flooding wasn't as bad as it could have been. Thank goodness for those small miracles.
Wooznib, Root and Resin sounds very nice!
Dr. G., enjoy your evening! It sounds lovely.
Yes, it is indeed lovely to see you all, and everyone smells so good in here.
I'm wearing one small spritz (which is plenty) of DK Gold edp this morning. It had been so long since I'd last worn it that I wanted to make sure I remembered what it smelled like. I'm hanging on to this one. I still love it.
G, I love Magic Flute -- it's one of my favorite operas. Enjoy
Elizrj, I'm so glad the flooding was relatively contained; I hope that's the last of it for this spring, but I worry about the snow melt elsewhere... I remember how awful it was here a couple of years ago. Then the drought came. Swinging from one extreme to the other has made living in the middle of the country quite the adventure, hasn't it? I'm laughing at your wish for Monas or Ormande Jaynes Just to set the record staight, though, *I* would have kept and enjoyed Pivoine Rose; the BF made it a no-go. I suspect you'll like it -- I much preferred it to the Penhaligon's Peoneve.
More hugs for ((((cello))) and anyone else who might need them. Hugs and kisses back at'cha, Quarry!
Steady rain here today, so we may end up with a good dousing. No real downpours, though, so that's good. Pairing violets again with the rain in YSL Paris. That combination just seems right to me somehow.
Good morning all!
Sorry to read about the flooding, elizrj-- we rarely get water in the basement but it is always a major disruption, and a pile of work with the wet-vac, when it happens.
I've been watching the little drama on the osprey webcam (can't bump the thread on Off Topic, it only updates). The female from last year finally returned from her migration just a little while ago and promptly attacked the new female-- in the process they overturned the camera so it now points to the ground! Hopefully the caretaker will be along to right it. We all want to see the ospreys starting their 2013 family.
Sotd is once again a mixture of lavender-- an old bottle of Yardley English Lavender layered with a bit of lavender essential oil, diluted.
EK's rain will translate into 6 to 9 inches of snow here in the Wonderland. In my 16 years in the USA it is the longest (oddest?) winter we have ever had. And imagine they are promising 70s by the weekend. Un-freaking-believable! It will make whoever's speakers go Boom Boom!
Roberto Cavalli Oro. Off tomorrow, can't wait!
That is miserable, Twolf! Winter was too long this year. But my husband finally ran the snow blower dry yesterday.
And my roses have nice fat buds on them, and need to be pruned. Soon!
Oh, poor elizrj! I sympathize, had a flooded home basement myself. As did most of our city; this is what we get for living in a city built at the intersection of three rivers. You need not buy a Pivoine Rose sample, I'd be happy to send you one! Just PM me if interested!
I'm in Yardley Iris today. This little cheapie really holds its own, very nice.
The nose wants what it wants!
Allergies are kicking up today, wearing just a little Kuumba Made Persian Garden.
Elizrj, sorry to hear about all the inconvenience you are having - best of luck with the clear-up.
SotE - Hermes Hiris.
Keeping watch on the ospreys too, 30R

@ Jon Rodgers Where do you find all the stunning images that you post everyday? I enjoy and look forward to seeing all the lovely photos.
I hope you can rest up tomorrow -- and catch some of that nice weather this weekend. Assuming it actually shows up.
Still sprinkling here.
Jon, you do consistently post the most ridiculously lovely photos.

We had the most oppressively gloomy grey skies here today, & all of us at work were feeling strangely tired & headachey.
Wearing Bronze Goddess this evening, & dreaming of summer.
Hey y'all -
I'm in Aromatics Elixir for the afternoon.
SotA was Gucci Envy. SotE is vintage Revlon Jontue.
We've been having a cool snap here, too. We had to turn the heat on last night after running the AC for a few days because of the warmth and humidity. You never know what you're going to get here...hail, rain, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, or just the most gorgeous spring day ever. We must expect the unexpected, always.
CREED Spring Flower and Fleurissimo
Terrible morning, late to work, forgot my computer, fender bender in the parking garage trying to get out to go home and get said computer, yikes feeling a little bit cursed, don't want to touch anyone for fear of passing it on!
I do smell good. Caron Tuberose from a sample.
Poor ((Robin))! The rest of today is bound to be better, right?
Warming things up a bit with Sonoma Scent Studio Rose Volupte. Plus tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich for supper. Livin' the dream, baby!
I also wore Hermes Hiris today...
What I've Been Wearing:
Came home, tired again, it is still blowing outside, we have got about 4" of the white stuff.
Disturbingly, I smell of someone else's musk on the left arm, trying to figure out who I hugged or who hugged me.
Somehow I crave Frapin 1270 tonight. Since I do not have any left, it will be Tolu bath oil from cacio.
Serge Lutens Un Lys.
Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!
