    Good morning lovelies

    My gorgeous Wuthering Heights weather has returned, so I am wearing Opium. I am sure Cathy would have enticed Heathcliff even more with this fragrance!

    My memories of Opium are as a little girl watching a singer absolutely mesmerized on television and saying to my mummy *mummy can you and daddy get him to be my husband when I grow up* to which she replied if that is what you still want when you are older of course sweetheart.

    That tambourine dance was so great to me...........that I emptied about a bottle of my mummys opium on myself and my parents never said a word as I danced around the house with a tambourine.

    As time went by I still love this wonderful gentle man, but not in a *husband way* !

    Have a wonderful day everyone

    Good morning all !. Glad to be back and with a day off to recover. Norway was wonderful and the weather was kind, with blue skies predominating. Spent the last few days walking through pine forests, clambering up ski-jumps, winding around fjords on trains, and exploring Oslo, which never loses it's appeal even after numerous visits. Returned with some dangerously addictive cloudberry liqueur, goats cheese, and a replacement bottle of Geir. Back to grey and miserable dreich here.

    Relaxing with a little Grieg before returning to the grindstone tomorrow.







    Welcome back, ExtremeK !.

    Good morning, everyone!

    Some of you might recall that Tony and I were married just about three years ago ...tomorrow, to be exact, and we decided back then that it would be fun to have a little anniversary honeymoon each year at this time, so that's what we're doing. So no ballet or barre for me today - we're going to Brazil!!

    We're headed first to Rio for a few days of glitz to start things off...


    and then north to Bahia for a more peaceful tropical experience.


    We leave this afternoon, and I suppose I'll be seeing y'all in about twelve days or so! I'm in Beige for the flight, which I'll probably be sticking with for much of our time there, along with a few other beachy favorites. I've packed full bottles of Songes, Coco edt, Chantecaille Frangipane, Dune and Fragonard Belle de Soleil, so I think I've got everything covered, perfume-wise at least ...it's not necessary to cover everything where we're going, lol!

    Welcome home, Jon! So glad you had a grand time, but glad you're back to hold down the fort around here.

    Love your sweet story, Sea Roses - I can just imagine you twirling around and around with your jangly tambourine, wafting heady clouds of Opium! So cute.

    And Happy Birthday to MrT a day early. Please give him a big hug for me Wolfie, and a little birthday kiss, too! xo

    Y'all take care - até logo! xoxo

    Why yes, thank you - they look divine! If you don't mind I'll take a few extras, just in case Tony wants one, hehe.

    Thanks again, Jon - you're the best! xo

    And thanks to kbe, too - I love it when you're moved speak!!

    Oh, E!!! Congrats on the 3 years!! Ours is next month, also three years!. Wow, Brazil huh? Heard it's really something to see. Ahh, and it's about the right time too cause it's warmer south of the equator now. Take lots of pics and have fun with your true love.

    Moving is going alright. Soooo glad to be out of that last apartment. I could say so many *bad* experiences with that place!!! I mean, just awful, awful. Cops were called more than once to that place. Even drug dealers showed up at our apt mistaking our place for another..I really could write a page or two on just how awful that place was.

    Glad to be out and in a bit better of a place. A little bit bigger too....so a bit more space to put all of our junk, LOL.

    Smelling of Lilas by YR, testing it out.

    Hugs to all!

    Kalli glad to hear you are in a better place, as they say a change is as good as a holiday and no cops being called is a BIG bonus.

    Hello everyone!

    I just got through reading the weekend's SOTD threads. Big hugs to (((30 Roses))), your sweet mama is so fortunate to have you looking after her so dearly. Kalli, so glad your move went well and you are settling into a new place! Also, yes, you must try Bois des Iles if it even remotely sounds like something you would enjoy. I waited forever to try it, finally did, and think I could wear it every day and never tire of it.

    Evangeline, happy anniversary!! Your trip sounds a-maz-ing and I hope you and Tony have the best time and a safe trip! Hope you take some pics to show us upon your return!

    Jon, I am also sitting here green with envy over your trip. It sounds like it was absolutely wonderful!

    No news here; relaxing weekend with Jay, we cooked and napped and watched movies and caught up on The Blacklist. The community theater is currently doing a production of The Wizard of Oz and we enjoyed that on Saturday as well. (Also, I got a perfume compliment from Jay on Friday night, when I was wearing a mixture of First and Iris Poudre. I am so glad he loves the smell of good perfume!)

    Today it is in the 70s here. Feels like springtime instead of mid-November and I wanted to be fresh and pretty. In Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    Busy weekend, my youngest daughter turned 7 on Saturday and we gave her a birthday party at the house; made a lovely cake with lemon curd between layers of buttermilk vanilla cake; specified no presents so of course she had a massive haul of presents. I apparently have offended many parents this year as the presents included two bow-and-arrow sets, a dartboard and darts, and many craft kits with tiny pieces of things to scatter across the floor. Will endeavor to be more friendly this year of else I am afraid it will be drum kits and knife-throwing sets next year.

    I've oversprayed my new bottle of Habit Rouge EdP this morning. I had tried a vial sample which applies quite differently. Next time, I'll be much more careful as all the reviews discuss this very thing. Ooops, try again!

    Mrs Q, those tornadoes look so frightening. When nature decides to unleash it's full power there is little we can do but pray. My immediate thoughts were for PerfumedLady - I remember the hair-raising experience she went through last year and hope she has been unnaffected this time.

    Hi all,

    Welcome back, Jon, glad you had a great weekend!

    E, have a wonderful holiday & a very happy anniversary!

    Sea Roses, l love your story too. Will watch the video later.

    Erin, you smell lovely.

    Kalli, glad to hear you're in a better place. Bois des Isles has been on my test list for quite some time now, l really must get around to it.

    Robin, LOL at "drum kits & knife throwing sets". Your house sounds a pretty dangerous place to be right now.

    Wore Cinema for work today, for the first time this autumn. l forgot how much l enjoy this one on a cold, grey day. The amber warms me up, & the almond blossom holds the promise that spring will come. Eventually.
