    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..."

    I'm smelling wonderful in Samsara today

    And I'm very pleased to report that my eye has started to recede so now I merely look puffy eyed and hungover, rather than having a shiner.

    Good morning, everyone!

    It's a warm and rainy day here, and that's not supposed to change for a while so I'll probably stay put with the hubs and the kitties today, just lounging about, catching up on reading, maybe a bit of cooking, what have you ...just a relaxing and lazy day all around. I'm in Nude Musk by Ava Luxe.

    It's warmish and humid here today, too. I'm wearing Givenchy's Parfums des Mythiques Eau de Givenchy this morning, doing some last minute house tasks, getting ready in case anybody wants to see the house. No offers yet, though quite a few lookers. I'm not expecting any serious shoppers until the kids are out of school here so it's early days. Must run. Love to all you sunshines. ♥

    Good afternoon.

    SotD is Avignon, in a beautiful, sunny and scented day- pittosforus, black locust trees but also the lavender twigs in the flowerbeds just in front of my house are giving off their bracing smell. I can't wait for my neighbours' jasmine to bloom and fill my house with scent...

    iivanita, what a beautiful iris picture! I will not embarrass myself, however, in trying to identify the species

    Going shopping to the nearest big town (100 miles ) in Une Fleur de Cassie. Just got a compliment from my hubby too! Certainly a winner.

    Hello, everyone! It's cold and windy today, only 36 degrees. Doesn't sound like it
    will improve until next week sometime. I missed rose day yesterday, had to spend
    the day in town and then my husband came home from his week long business trip
    to Utah, so I spent the evening with him.

    Have a wonderful trip, elizrj! Getting away on vacation sounds like so much fun!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better, stmedusa, I hope it keeps improving.

    Wearing Theo Fennell Scent this morning.





    Have a great weekend!

    Hello, all!

    ExtremeK, I'm so glad you're enjoying Cuir d'Iris! It's so fabulous, isn't it?

    I missed the synch yesterday and wore SL Daim Blond all day. Synched with SotE in Frederic Malle Une Rose.
    I'm unscented so far today; I've been lazing around and watching the dogs play. But I think I know what I'll wear: Cartier L'Heure Fougueuse. Hubby wore it yesterday and he smelled so good.

    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!

    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.
