    I'm sorry for you all that this is still going on. Has her fractured bone healed in the intervening months, or will they need to fuse her ankle after removing the hardware?

    Back to the bottles!!! I know my self impossed rule was silly, but I feel sort of satisfied that I, for the most part, stuck with samples only during October. I finished approx. 25 little vials or spray samples, and feel better for having sorted through the whole lot. And I found a few very interesting fragrances.

    But...now I am back to my beloved bottles, and will scatter a few samples in here or there.

    Chanel 31 rue Cambon to start off this week.

    to accept the things I cannot change;

    Ursula, I agree about AusLiebezumDuft - their samples are of the highest quality, as is their customer service. Congratulations to your son on his achievement in New York . I have managed a couple of half marathons but have grave doubts as to whether I could go the full distance.


    (((RHM))), sorry to hear about the ongoing family situation. I do hope things begin to settle down soon.



    Kalli, Apple don't float my boat either - I'll take my cheaper android Samsung over the IPhone any time.

    I'm going with Elizrj's "Kick Ass" fragrance, Bandit, body wash, body lotion & parfum.

    Don't anybody mess with me today. I'm taking my glitchy Macbook Pro in for repairs…..again. Hate this thing! Never, ever again will I buy Apple anything.

    Other than this…I'm fine, yep, just hunky dory.

    Hi all. Today is Jul et Mad Amour de Palazzo, last night was Majda Bekkali Tendre est la Nuit (new sample from Luckyscent).

    This morning when I was looking through my shoeboxes for my Jul et Mad decants, I was kind of blown away by how many samples I have, especially samples I have not tried yet. I should probably do something like Cello and do a samples-only month so I can wear through some of these.

    Many thanks for all your good wishes! Mama came through the surgery very well. Her doctor said her bones are very strong & they cleaned everything really well.
    30R, I don't know if they had to fuse her ankle or not. I'll talk to my sister later tonight & see if she knows.
    They said she'll be "fitted with a boot" but I'm not sure how that works with a healing surgical site; particularly as MRSA has been a problem for her.

    The Robert Piguet Bandit was absolutely perfect for today. No a** kicking required at the Apple store, they just fixed it at no charge. I'm sure it was the Bandit.

    Tonight's fragrance is LUSH Gorilla Perfume Breath of God. Notes are: Neroli, lemon, melon, jasmine, rose, vetiver, sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, musk. Perfect for tonight!

    Officially, I'm wearing Bal à Versailles, ala Michael Jackson and Liz Taylor, but last night I put my new perfume info to use and mixed this up from the Perfumery Notes Kit;

    1 drop Bergamot
    3 drops Jasmine Grandiflora
    3 drops Bulgrian Rose
    3 drops Habanolide (musk)
    10 drops Galaxolide (musk)
    10 drops Sandalwood

    I'm sure I don't have the proportions right yet, it has no projection or sillage, but it smells fairly good.

    RHM,
    Coming through surgery well is half the battle at that age.
    The boot, I expect, will be a walking boot to protect the joint as it continues to heal. It's in place of a cast.

    I'm back from my trip ... I'm wearing my new Chanel no5 today, a purchase made while in St Martin. I had heard that there is a difference in the Chanels made in France and the Chanels made in New Jersey ... I had it in my head that I wanted the no5 from France. I haven't always done well with no5, but in my old age, it seems to be working well for me. (Speaking of my trip, it sort of feels like I cruised through the Bermuda Triangle and ended up in a timewarp BN.)

    hugs to all ... I missed you!

    Matildaben, I am with you on sampling -- let's! When do we start? (I sort of started last week, with about 7 new to me scents worn). Who do I send leftovers to? LOL No, no, seriously.

    Royal Apothic Orange Absolue -- pretty, in the vein of LAP FdO, only with better longevity. Tons cheaper!
