    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..."

    LadyM, I tested Roja Dove Scandal EdP earlier this morning, did not know it was your SotD. Soft but long-lasting, white floral bouquet, with sort of boring (aka predictable/reliable/unpretentious/classy) dryout, very pleasant overall.

    If a good Samaritan on a John Deere were to come and scoop us up, I would not chase him away today. It will probably get all muddy tomorrow.

    Anyway, my SotD is Hermes Faubourg 24, not delicate.

    I'm wearing a scent that isn't in the database- Body Shop Amber Oud, which is a very fizzy and bright amber, which for some reason I can't explain makes me really hungry.

    It's been raw and breezy, and is threatening rain now but at least we don't have snow any more, so I'm not complaining!

    SotD is Brin de Réglisse from a sample. My lavender kick goes on....

    I was amused the other day when my 6yo came up to me and we had this exchange:

    "Pie is a homophone. Because it's that cake and also it's that number, that number that has to do with circles. What is that number?"

    "Three point one four something"

    "That's what Jasmine said!"

    I am sure they learned *homophone* in kindergarten. But Pi?

    I am reading Tilar J. Mazzeo's The Secret History of Chanel No. 5, and it has me craving Chanel No. 5 in the worst way! So this morning it is a vintage version of Chanel No. 5 cologne mist for me.

    Thank you all for your kind thoughts yesterday. We are pumping pumping pumping. I laughed when I saw one of the businesses and library who are complaining about the 2" of water in their basement. We were approaching 4', spread over 13,000sf. That's a lot of water!

    It's raining and cold again. I agree with everyone that Spring is fighting to arrive. I am wearing the cozy Absolue por le Soir. Honestly, one small spritz of this and I can smell the warmth, but it doesn't feel skanky to me. Some people have called it inappropriate for work, and I suppose if I wore a bunch more it may be. But as it is, it's kind of a warm skin scent to me.

    Jon, that picture of the Iris field yesterday was amazing!!

    PerfumedLady, thank you so much for the offer of a sample. I will send you a PM. I'd love to try that one.

    Hi everyone! I've been gone for a couple of days, I had appointments in Rochester again. Everything is going great and don't need to see the doctors there for a year. Interesting drive down and back though, we hit snowstorms both ways, got a little scary at times, but we made it. My son went with me this time, thank goodness he's a good driver and it was really nice to spend some extra time with him.

    I can relate 30 Roses - I, like you, have been craving lavender also. It sort of comes over me, ever so often & I can't explain it. I don't have a lot of lavender full bottle scents (well...I have three or four lol) but I make do with samples and bottles. That Hermes is so nice, isn't it? I am sort of considering one of those honking big plastic bottles of Agua Lavanda Puig & the shower gel to match. It's so affordable!

    Good afternoon, & a Happy St. George's Day to all!

    lt's a glorious day here too, with temperatures in the 20s; proper "t-shirt weather"!

    l wanted to finish my sample of La Tulipe this morning, but couldn't get the darn thing to spray. lt's a manufacturer's sample, so l can't just remove the spray mechanism, but there's enough in there for at least one more wearing. l'll attack it with some pliers later, l think.
    lnstead l finished my sample of Jacinthe et Rose, & topped it off with some Stella Rose Absolute.

    I agree with you, Twolf. It's a safe scent, I think. Office friendly, you might say and it has a classic, vintage vibe to it.
