    My poor fiancee....he got the wrong message...he thought he had to fast on Sunday (which I do) and yesterday. Last night he came to give me a lovely gift and I reminded him that today he can only have water today as the liturgy is tonight. He tried to look enthusiastic while realising that while working long hours he has to go a third day without food!

    Will be wearing La Liturgie des Heures in a few hours as I head off to the Liturgy service tonight.

    Morning all & a happy hump day!

    Back to dreary dreich weather here today, so l'm wearing Encens Flamboyant for work, for that comforting dry incense.

    Poor Pasha! Was it a perfumed gift he gave you, Sea Roses?

    Hi all! Just sitting by the french windows watching the squirrels and birds
    feeding and scampering about in the leaves. My leg cast comes off in seven days time and I
    can't tell you how much I am looking forward to that happening! I will be able to drive again
    and get some Christmas shopping done.

    Hi everyone,

    Winding down for the evening and catching up on the goings on.

    Twolf ((hugs)) to you and yours. Sounds like Mr T had a great day, one just right for him and really that all that matters. TM Angel is not for me either. There's an overly strong sour burnt carmel smell makes me a bit ill (sorry that’s what get with this one).

    ExtremeK a couple dozen strong and briny and the place would have definitely lived up to its name. The food was superb, I won’t comment on the effects hehe. Also loved your advice, Elirzj take the advice it’s worth its weight in big shiny diamonds.

    Mike welcome back! Love the new signature btw

    Sea Roses how incredibly sweet of your Pasha, he'll need a good meal after all that fasting.

    Shades there are worse ways to go. Death by chocolate was so good I uttered a curse word on tasting the first spoonful.

    RHM Glad to hear your Sofie is doing better.

    Lesson of the day: It’s easier to deal with people when you realise that evolution can indeed go backwards. No matter, it may not be a good day but there is always good in the day. Here’s a pic of the good in my day.

    Such cuteness. I love my Barista, he always takes the time to do darling foam art for me no matter how busy he is.

    A big run for me this morning to work of last nights indulgences, Jicky vintage EdC for the day and heading off to bed for an early night with a good book in lots and lots of Chanel No.5 from ScentFan’s jasmine sniff fest.

    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..."

    Hello, everyone!

    Sea Roses, hope you are thoroughly enjoying your perfume gift, and since you're a few hours ahead of me, I also hope you're enjoying a well-deserved snack! Hugs and encouragement to Kewart as the cast-removal countdown heads into its final week, and Mike I need a full report on the Dominican, as that's where my DH promised (last August, for my dreaded birthday that ended in a 0) to take me for a long weekend sometime this winter. Neither of us know anything about the place other than it's supposed to be fabulous, is not someplace we'd "typically" go, and that we should be able to divide our time between beautiful hikes and somebody bringing us fruffy-but-potent drinks with umbrellas in them on the beach.

    Speaking of indulgent vacations, today I'm giving a full test-drive to Viktona Minya's Hedonist thanks to a lovely sample from Kiliwia Normally I'm not a huge fan of fruit-sweet fragrances, but this one is a terrific blend with what feels to me like the unusual presence of peach. It feels a bit odd to be wearing such a sweet, luscious scent in frosty November, but it's a little vacation on my pulse points!

    Wonderful Wednesday to all...

    Hedonist notes: Rum, bergamot, peach, osmanthus absolute, jasmine abolute, orange flower absolute, tobacco, vanilla, cedarwood, vetiver.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Mike, I have heard DM is wonderful, fresh fruit all the time....the beaches...I bet the fruit is better there, unlike our super GMOgenized, steroid injected strawberries and such. It's a little weird going into the produce section sometimes..like what the heck is that?? A grape? Why is it the size of a softball and taste like one too? LOL. Glad you had a good time.

    Shades, my goodness, crazy story!!!!!!!!!! Like go get drunk in your own back yard, ya know? Goodness. I found someone sleeping in my garage too once when I came back from somewhere. He decided to park his truck in there and sleep in his truck bed. I open the garage..I was like..who's truck is this? Then I see someone peek out of the truck bed, complete with a sleeping bag mind you.. he was like, 'oh is this your garage?' I was like yaaa. What the heck?! LOL.

    Testing out some Fendi again, that 80's/90s smelling stuff, where is that MC Hammer and Christian Slater? Yellow suits with shoulder pads. LOL.

    Good morning!

    Welcome back, Mike, you smell and look fabulous now after your vacation, the perfect time for your birthday next week. Very glad to hear you have enjoyed your trip.

    Cello, good luck with the white glove inspection. I used to do so for my DMIL (not so "dear" in my case), and she would run her fingers on top of the opened doors -- that's where the only accumulation of dust had remained.

    Good morning!

    Welcome bak, Mike!!! What a dreamy vacation you must have had. Glad to see you back!

    Xscent, your latte art made me smile. Soo cute!!! And I loved your lesson of the day - ha!!! I will try to keep that in mind at work today.

    Did not sleep last night. I think I must have been thinking of the new job which I still have not heard about. I have a feeling my standard 2 travel mugs of black coffee is not going to be enough today.

    After several of y'all mentioned to me that your Kelly Caleche is also a golden color, and not pink, I had convinced myself mine is normal after all and I must have just been overapplying. I put some on today (a moderate 2 spritzes) and I am getting a distinct BO smell from the Kelly Caleche. What gives?

    Kewart, it's so good to hear you get your cast off soon!

    Com Diva, I'm glad you are enjoying the Hedonist, I got a honey peach note from it with touches of rum and vanilla.

    Have a good day, everyone.

    Twolf, glad to hear your day went wonderful!

    Mike, I'm hoping to see some pics!

    I'm off to San Diego today. Packed away some samples/decants in my bag for training. Nothing too offensive or loud.

    Today I'm trying Robert Piguet Jeunesse, but I'm not sure I had this sample labeled right. It's seems white flowery, not fruity. I have an unmarked sample in my stash too. I'll need to order this one and test it again. Especially if I wind up liking the unknown Nordstrom sample. I seem to remember an SA making a sample for me there, but I have no idea what it is. Unless it's Jeunesse. Hmmm....

    Hello all. It's fun to read all the reports of trips and special times that are shared.

    I could use positive thoughts and prayers today. I've a missing 18 year old son. Haven't heard from him since Mid-September and now he's been off all forms of social media since late October. I'm beginning to worry as he's not been hanging with quality people.

    I've sprayed on a small bit of Chocolate Amber before the walk to give me a bit of scent which I won't feel bad just washing off when I shower in a bit.

    Oh dear, (((danie))), how alarming!!! Is it typical for you to not hear from him for a long stretch of time or is this unprecedented? Sending big hugs to you and prayers for your son's reappearance.

    elizrj, wishing you safe & fun travels! Never been to San Diego...would love to go one day!

    I think I need to send someone a bit of my Kelly Caleche and have them let me know if it is a) a defective bottle or b) a fine bottle and my nose is defective. cello, you have some KC EDT, right (or am I mixing up who has EDT and who has EDP)? Can you help a sister out?

    This is not typical, however, I chose to not be terribly alarmed at first as he's just moved out this past April. I know that he's gotten involved with drug dealers and can only imagine a variety of unsavory activities. I know he's wanted by the authorities so he could just be lying low or have moved to a different city. The thing is that people were seeing him around and now no one has for some time and since he's stopped posting on FB and Instagram and such I am concerned. We adopted him when he was 8 out of a gang family. He's always been a very troubled young man but we had hoped that our influence might have helped him see a better path. So far, it seems as if it did not. As he's grown up, we've hoped we could get him to age 18 alive. We did that much at least, but now my greatest fear is .....well, you can imagine.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am so glad to report that he IS still breathing. I don't have details, but I'm so glad to learn that he's at least OK. Thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers!
