    Good morning, family!

    Hedonist, hats off to you and Mrs. for having nursed a wild animal back to health and then releasing it back to its habitat! It did not occur to me it was real while looking at the picture first!

    RHM, your Sofie looks just like Mama, Bella is so huggable and squeazable!

    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..."

    What wonderful news, RHM! Congratulations! And I'll join the chorus of those remarking on the family resemblance and how lovely Sofie's is -- has she fully recovered from the pneumonia?

    Speaking of which, (((Xscent))), sounds like you need more chicken soup -- and certainly the rest that teardrop prescribed.

    I haven't applied fragrance but will update in a bit. Frigid here today with a low of 7F and a high of only 20F. Jeans and sweater weather, I think, dress code be d*mned.

    Hello everyone -

    I'm back in '32 for ballet this morning, and it smells better than ever ...I might just have to jump back into that cozy little rut for a while.

    Y'all have a great day!



    RHM - mighty congratulations on the exciting promotion, and on your charming daughter ...she grew up so fast! And I remember when Bella was just a wee kitten, too ...sigh.

    Bravo, RHM on your promotion! Totally deserved.

    Another lightning post for me, I'm afraid... Still recovering from the three holiday meals we hosted for 16, 10, and 20 people respectively over the Thanksgiving weekend - It's a good thing my husband and I love to cook! Now, if we could only find some elves for clean-up...

    SOTD is Caron Tabac Blond EDC.

    Tabac Blond notes:
    Leather, carnation, and linden, iris, vetiver, ylang ylang, lime-tree leaf, cedar, patchouli, vanilla, amber, and musk.
    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    ComDiva, come sit by me! I love that Tabac Blonde, and may need to get a decant soon!

    Yes, the weekend with bachelor #3 is this weekend. He's been so great this week. I told him that I was under massive pressure from work and he asked what he could do to not add any. I told him I needed him to step it back a bit, I can't move that fast and he absolutely did. Gives me some breathing room, and that's very nice.

    XScent, the flu? Oh, I am so sorry, that's terrible. Take care of yourself!

    CONGRATS RHM! And I agree, your girl is a stunner! That hair, oh my. I would have loved to have a full head of that red hair!

    All this talk about vanilla has me filling out a sample list. I don't think I can handle a pass right now, with the work load going on here I'm lucky to just get through the month. But I'd happily compare notes, and I'm already filling out test lists given all of people's enthusiastic picks over the past few days.

    Today, strangely, I had a craving for Dries Van Noten. Something about it just keeps getting my attention. I am quickly emptying my sample bottle from Chicago. Can't put my finger on what I love about it.

    Hey everyone!

    Hedonist, I didn't get a chance to say it yesterday, but boy, do you have some adorable young 'uns! They are just too stinkin cute, both of them! And it is so sweet of you guys to take that tortoise in and get him all better. That little story almost brought a tear to my eye -- I am such a sucker for a good animal rescue story.

    And speaking of children, RHM, what a beautiful daughter you have! Her hair is ammmmazing! And congrats on your promotion; well deserved, no doubt! It is so nice when our hard work is recognized. Good going!

    (((Xscent))), time to get better, already! At least you have all your little friends there to cheer you up. I just drooled a bit on my keyboard over that bottle of Jicky...even though I have never smelled it, I am a sucker for those bottles! Give it a nice fondle for me will you?

    Joining the good company in Chanel today, No.5 for me. This is my "I miss my mommy" perfume. I can't wait to go home for the holidays!

    Hedonist: We found the tortoise in the desert injured. We think a desert fox may have had a nibble or two out of her.
    We brought her home and in no time she was better. Sad day when we took her back to the desert.

    I thought the tortoise was a lawn ornament! Those front claws don’t seem 21st-century-planet-earth real. Such fine parents you are to give your children this experience.

    Congrats, RHM, on the happy employment and raise situation. Gadzooks, Sofie’s a woman now. Wasn't she just a little person like Hedonist's kids? How do these things happen?

    Awww, Xscent, curl up and think happy thoughts until the blurgh passes.

    I sought out some vanilla in the form of Trish McEvoy Sexy 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk, and it's overlapping the L’Heure Bleue on my thermal sleeves. The combo is very satisfying on another dizzily day with heather-gray skies.

    Being a 49er fan and for some reason knowing that Kaepernick owns a tortoise that looks similar to that one(I guess it's been mentioned here and there in the media cause it's a unique pet I suppose)..I noticed it right away and knew it was real. I thought, it looks like Kaep's tortoise:

    l knew it was real too, kalli!

    Who was talking here about Lush's Sikkim Girls body cream recently? Sorry for not remembering who it was. Anyway, l tried some from a tester in town today, & found it very thick, more like a body butter. The SA said that it's designed to be used just on the areas to which you would normally apply perfume, rather than as an all-over product. Therefore l don't think l'd spend the £25 on it, although l wouldn't turn my nose up if someone bought me the adorable little box set of the cream & perfume for Christmas...

    I'm in 31 Rue Cambon for the afternoon, as I frequently am after a morning in '32. Ruts aren't so bad, really.



    teardrop - I believe it was rtamara that was talking up Sikkim Girls, and she piqued my curiosity, too. I do love a rich, luxuriously-perfumed body cream, and I really liked the perfume the last time I smelled it, so I've got to get over there and see what this cream's all about. Hehe, in the meantime I went to the online store and put it in a basket as a reminder - they keep e-mailing me "Hey, you left your stuff at our store!" so my system almost works, I just need to walk on over there.

    It's still snowing and blowing outside and the roads are terrible. Thankfully my son came and plowed out our yard and driveway after work. Both a Fed ex and a UPS truck nearly got stuck in the yard. My husband will be glad he doesn't have to do it when he gets home.

    Robin, you smell amazing tonight! I had a chance to try the Reglisse Noire a few weeks ago and I really liked it.

    Heure Exquise, Annick Goutal EDT. Testing it again and I think perhaps this juice has turned. Idk. It's like iris completely drenched in vanilla. Like sweet & dirty vanilla dust. Is this how it's supposed to smell? I get no sandalwood. Iris yes, rose yes..but are both smothered in vanilla. To where it's not even very floral. The iris is definitely there, pretty strong but just covered in vanilla. To where it's overpowering the florals. Perhaps this juice is old. It smells a bit flat..very sweet. It's like it's more about vanilla than any rest of the notes which tells me this could have turned? Stays close to the skin then starts to disappear some. Dirty vanilla. Again, is this how it's supposed to smell like? Vanilla dust? Thanks.
