    Good afternoon!

    After a few days of mere weather with clouds and rain the sky is finally clear blue and it's warm outside.

    I decided to wear Noontide Petals by Andy Tauer today. Later will be time for some cycling.

    Hello everyone, Coty L'Origan vintage eau de toilette for me. There's no doubt that Jacques Guerlain brought it to another realm with L'Heure Bleue, but François Coty got there first with this beautiful gem.



    Have a lovely day, all.

    Mornings!

    Was difficult choosing today, but finally went for Idylle by Guerlain for this rainy and chilly day.

    Well, my senses are back -- just like so: woke up smelling coffee that Mr.T started. 5 days of sterile vacuum with a few glimpses of unfoggy head was more than enough. Drizzling here and grey.

    Terry, I think you are absolutely spot on about the two! (You also remember what E. says about her favorite version of Shalimar? In case you do not -- it is vintage Emeraude! Now we need to speculate about the trend with L'Aimant, me thinks.)

    Hugs to 30R and mama.

    So happy to hear you are recovering, T-Wolf!

    I bet you could smell me, maybe from here actually. Smell Bent Prairie Nymph. I was very delicate with it but it's powerful stuff.

    Also note today is Free Comic Book Day in the US, for those so inclined. We love these in my house. Mouse Guard and Atomic Robo in particular.

    You all smell so wonderful this morning! I don't know yet what I'm going to wear. Something that makes me feel especially gorgeous in my own little cloud of gorgeousness as I go about my day. Hmm... Enjoy your day everyone.

    Roberto, seeing your posts always puts a smile on my face! I just wanted you to know that.

    Twolf, Coty l'Aimant = Chanel No. 5? I will take vintage Emeraude over Shalimar, I think. And I love Shalimar. I'm glad you're feeling better!

    Another gourmand for me today, one I can't get enough of - Hanae Mori Butterfly EdT, recent formulation. There is something so comforting and cheerful about it, I can't believe I dismissed it years ago when Mr. tried to push it on me. For once he was right and I was wrong .

    Good morning, everyone -

    It's a spectacular day here, just what was needed after the last few days of rain, but the sun is bright and spirits are high for more jazz at the fest. I'm in vintage Chamade, 70s parfum and edc.

    Y'all have a wonderful 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

    This morning's conversation with my daughter:
    "Happy second anniversary, honey."
    "Third."

    What kind of mom am I?

    That said, I'll wear Cartier Panthère today, since she bought it for me back when she was about 16, trying to duplicate a scent memory from her childhood (forgive me, basenotes friends who have read this so many times before), what she called "cold perfume"; it was the smell of me coming home from orchestra around 11 pm and tiptoeing into her room to give her a kiss.

    She's wearing Liz Taylor's springy Violet Eyes, a drugstore buy that deserves some love.

    It's Kentucky Derby day and DH is having his annual party. He loves horse racing; me? I love the horses, the racing not so much. Anyway, corny nerd that I am (and I think MikePerez will understand this!) I'm wearing Whips and Roses for the occasion. Hopefully there will not be too many whips involved.

    Happy Saturday to everyone!

    Yay for Kentucky Derby day! Maybe I can watch it on TV if we don't have to get out of the house so people can see it. I would go to a bar and have a mint julep to watch, but I have to take the dog with me when we vacate and I don't want to leave her in the car. Wearing Jeanne Lanvin Couture from a decant sent by a BN pal. It's youthful and pretty: raspberry, violet, peony on a musky/cedar base. Fruity but not too syrupy sweet. Must run. Love to everybody.

    Hello all,

    After around eleven hours sleep & a nice rest this afternoon (& managing to clean the bathroom - it needed doing!) l'm feeling a little bit better. So we're off out for a couple of beers this evening, although it probably won't be a late night. And although the sun is out now, it was cloudy here for most of the day, so it was a good day for resting. SOTE will be Organza.

    Glad Twolf is feeling better too. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

    Did somebody say mint juleps? I'm all game. Well, I had a Hemingway style La Floridita Daiquiri as served in Havana instead. I started the day off in En Avion and am now in Jicky EdP.
    Have a lovely rest of your Saturday!

    I'm trying out my sample of "En Avion." Wowowow. Spicy and floral, and very much the adventurous, corsetless modern woman it was designed to represent.
