    Thumbs up SOTD, Saturday 27th April 2013

    Hello my beloved Ladies. Good Morning. Wish you all a very happy day

    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! Beautiful day shaping up here, it's to get up into the 60's. That
    should definitely get rid of the rest of our snow.

    Wearing Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia this morning.





    Have a great Saturday!

    Good morning, everyone -

    We've got two days of food, music and dancin' ahead of us (...well, until it starts up again next Thursday) but everyone around here seems rather beat already - it's a rare occasion when I'm the only one up! Maybe the enticing aroma of breakfast will rouse them ...that's one of the few things that'll get me up when I'd rather stay put. But today Jazz Fest awaits, and I'm ready to go ...surrounded by the lush and bright magnolias of Magnolia Nobile.

    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    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

    No scent today -- can't smell anything. Will be off two days in a row, will spend them in bed mostly, I think. I wish I could go and play outside in the dirt -- gotta plant herbs and zinnias, will have to miss all that gorgeousness of the sunshine.

    You guys bloom where you are planted, today and always!

    We are going camping, yippie!!! As we won't be around any humans whose delicate sensibilities we might offend, Mr. is wearing Yatagan while I drenched myself in Jicky extrait, courtesy of one very fine gentleman who often attends green envy inducing events.

    Tdem1961 - you smell fabulous!

    iivanita - you are so right! It's always a treat to sample something special that is hard to come by. I was very fortunate, Ebay usually treats me well.

    Just saw your post, Twolf. I solemnly promise to do my best to bloom despite the drought and high winds.

    Happy Saturday, everyone!

    Good morning to all, especially our fine gentlemen

    In case yesterday's were insufficient, more hugs to (((cello))), (((Twolf))), and (((Shades)))

    We finally have a weekend of sun, and all I want is orange blossom, it seems. Again with Mademoiselle Piguet.

    It's a fabulous girly day for me: mani-pedi, followed by haircut/color/highlight, and shopping for accessories and frothy unmentionables

    Happy Saturday to all my fragrant lovelies, and happy camping to Whitefluffy and Mr. Fluffy!!

    Magnolia Nobile is beautiful, Evangeline, and so appropriate this time of year!

    Like Evangenline and Kiliwia, I am also in white flowers today: Jo Malone Osmanthus Blossom. It is a citrusy, bright blossom, unpretentious and very easy to wear. Has anyone smelled the actual flower??

    Sending healing vibes to (((Wolfie)))
    Have a fab time, Mrs.E and Mrs.WF !

    Spent the morning in town and took the opportunity to smell the three new YSL frags being launched with the eye- watering price tag of £185 for 80mL ! No samples, so could only sniff on paper, but yeah... odd move by the house ( wasn't impressed either ).

    Joining in the Jicky fun tonight - a couple of spritzes of the PdT should do it.
    Have a lovely weekend, all.

    It's such a lovely spring day that we are heading off shortly to window-shop on Greenwich Avenue. No scent as I may wish to spray a tester or two at Saks.

    On a side note I tested Green Irish Tweed today and sadly I did not like it one bit. It smelled like wet grass one would remove from a lawnmower.

    I can't say I had high hopes for the fragrance but didn't think I'd dislike it so much. However I must say that the juice was of a high quality, one spray and my other half could smell it on the other side of our sitting room.

    Well, shoot. I made a pretty (for my abilities) daffodil bouquet with all my different varieties I grow and took a pic to post for you all. Especially poor (((Twolf))), thought it might cheer you a little. Joined Photobucket and was all ready to go but still can't figure it out! Think I am posting the wrong addy for the link; any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong are welcome.

    Anyway, the long, cold, brutal winter resulted in especially fantastic smelling daffodils this year! Finally, I can say something nice about winter! Makes me want to smell that way, too so am in Le Temps d'une Fête today! Happy Saturday, everyone!

    Have fun, Whitefluffy! Glad you're getting away from it all!

    Some Photobucket links are just copy and paste you don't have to use the little photo icon on the toolbar. Try just copying it into the comment box and see if that works.

    I had fun playing in the sample/decant bag this morning and wound up in Vent Vert with Fresh Violet Moss layered over that, a nice combination that I'm about to refresh after lunch.

    Get well soon, Twolf!

    Good afternoon, all.

    Fiore di Riso today, I can't figure out whether this means 'rice flower' or 'smile flower' but it is pretty, subtle not big, does not last on me, but pretty.

    We had monsoon-like rain here this afternoon, & now the sun is shining brightly again, so l'm pretending l'm on a tropical island with Mahora, from my little decant.

    I played tennis this morning, and played great and won. Yes! Finally! Mrs. E, enjoy your festival day!

    Now in Chanel #18, just because I can.

    Oh, anyone have a decant amount of Le Labo Iris 39 they would like to swap? I need some for a friend, and can decant anything from my wardrobe.

    I tried Voyage d'Hermes (both EDT and parfum) and Un Jardin en Mediterranee this afternoon at Sephora (where I didn't buy any fragrance, but I did walk out with some terrific lip glosses!), and I really liked all three of them. I'm surprised by how much I like Voyage d'Hermes, but there you have it.

    I also sniffed Chanel No. 5 for the 143rd time. EDT. Strike. EDP. Strike. Sensual Elixir. Strike. Eau Premiere -- whoa! This one's not half bad! I may sample that one on skin next time. May wonders never cease.

    I haven't figured out my SotE yet, but Un Jardin en Mediterranee may have put me in a figgy mood. So maybe Sonoma Scent Studio Fig Tree ...

    We went out late-- just my daughter and me-- determined to try again to see the Night Rainbow laser light sculpture since tonight was the last night-- and it was to be turned off at 1 a.m.

    We must just have been at the wrong angle last night because after winding this way and that on small roads, we finally found this:





    The lights were projected from a monument on East Rock, in celebration of the 375th anniversary of New Haven.
    More on this light sculpture:
    http://nightrainbownewhaven.com/

    We did see the lights fanned out horizontally from the I-34 connector in New Haven, but traveling at a high rate of speed we could not stop to look from that angle.
