    I went sniffing today with a fellow perfumista. An intense testing of Parfumerie Générale and some Huitième Art. On my skin now: Louanges Profanes. A pleasant, creamy scent with enough woody depth to not be boring. I'll get myself a decant I guess. On the other side Myrrhiad. I think these domesticated myrrh fragrances in the same vein like Myrrh et Délires by Guerlain are not for me. If the myrrh is dominant, I want it to have this sacral and archaic character like in Myrrh Ardente by Annick Goutal.

    I am continuing the rose fest from yesterday's synch. Earlier it was some Roger & Gallet Rosewater, and before I left the house I had a couple of spritzes of L'Occitane Les 4 Reines. Now, it is YSL Parisienne. I love the combination of violet/rose. I am seriously in love with violet lately, actually, in all its manifestations.

    Mike Perez, if you are reading this...I had a bath last night with Bourbon French Kus Kus cologne poured in. Not much really, about 3 ml. It was wonderful! I didn't get the full impact until afterward but it was so nice - ambery, softly vanillic, ever so faintly spicy, really lovely. Someone told me about taking a bath with Chantilly poured in a while ago, so I think that will be next.

    Hey y'all -

    Well, the rain has stopped and the sun's come out and it looks like we have a beautiful night ahead. We're enjoying a few cocktails in-house before heading out for a few more elsewhere, plus some dinner and a little live music ...all the usual things. I'm in Portrait of a Lady. Enjoy your evening, everyone!


    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

    SOTE: Finally broke out my sample of Amouage Beloved. Feeling like a million bucks. Er, at least four hundred thirty bucks. I think I'm happy with my 1 ml sample for now, thank you very much.

    It looks like a variegated version of Iris unguicularis to me, but that would need your photograph to have been taken much earlier in spring.
