    Hi everyone - have a great day (and good luck to anyone trying to fly in or out of some of our southern airports!)...

    Good afternoon all !.


    Wolfie / Xscent - no purchases at the Xmas market yesterday but a return visit this morning has yielded plenty. Two bottles of merlot from Bordeaux, mulled wine, mulled cider, two cheeses (Roquefort and Gorgonzola), wild boar sausages, and some Belgian waffles.
    We have relatives arriving later and are cooking the traditional Xmas dinner tomorrow - in NZ over the festive season so this weekend will be our British Xmas with all the trimmings (and calories !).

    Jon, that sounds like a magnificent haul of goodies, envying the cheese, I love my blue cheeses.

    A big food day for me too, family lunch and dinner. Given it’s summer we did the traditional Aussie Christmas celebration with all the trimmings, that is lots of seafood. Was very spoilt with oysters, sashimi, crayfish, scollops and prawns. Very happy girl tonight.

    In No.5 vintage EdC and parfum tonight (an early Christmas gift).



    Hope you all have a wonderful day and those experiencing inclement weather stay safe and warm.

    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..."

    Hi all,

    (((30 Roses & mom)))

    Having a lazy day today recovering from last night's Christmas party. We had a medieval banquet in the old stone hall at the world-famous Beaulieu Motor Museum in the New Forest. Two coach-loads of us were transported there & back from town, & after a night of feasting, drinking & dancing, it was well into the small hours by the time l got to bed.

    Here are some pics of things you may recognise, from the Bond exhibition currently on show there.

    Today l'm sampling Winter Woods by Sonoma Scent Studio. Soothing, woody-ambery goodness.

    Oh, & Merry Christmas Jon & family!

    Baking cookies for St.Nick's. A quick trip to the store -- 18 miles away IS quick in our neck of the sticks! -- in Bottega Veneta, we are well below with the wind chill, more like -30C. .

    Have a lovely, cozy and safe weekend.

    It's very cold this morning -20F air temp and -32F wind chill.

    (((30 Roses and Mama Roses)))

    Jon, have a wonderful celebration with your family!

    Wearing YSL Supreme Bouquet this morning from a sample. I think this is the nicest from their new Oriental Collection, with notes of tuberose, ylang ylang, jasmine, amber, musk and patchouli.





    Have a great day!

    I'm wearing Gal Trébol today. Am going out for lunch with my best friend from Middle School ("Junior High" is what we called it in those days.)

    Mom's coping today after last night's fall, but is sore.

    Good morning, everyone!

    One of the things that Tony and I have in common - one of the things that brought us together, actually - is our love of books. We mostly collect firsts, special and rare editions of our favorite authors, but I also love to come across miscellaneous old books with beautiful covers and/or illustrations, but of course they're not always in the best condition. After having several rebound and facing dozens more that desperately need restoration, we decided to take on the project ourselves by taking a bookbinding class! Well, Tony's going to accompany me to the first one today which is the introduction and overview, but then I'll continue on solo to learn all the actual techniques to, hopefully ...eventually, restore some of these old tomes. Now I'm not saying I'll be doing anything like this anytime soon, but these are the sorts of beauties that inspired me to take the first step.

    .....

    We won't actually be handling any binding materials or leather today, but as clichéd as it might seem, I thought Chanel Cuir de Russie would be appropriate, current parfum and edt.



    Jon - I have no doubt that it'll be fabulous, but wishing you and yours a very happy early Christmas celebration tomorrow (hehe, typing those words "Christmas" and "tomorrow" actually gave me a bit of a panicky feeling ...I've got way too much to do before Christmas is welcome around here!)

    teardrop - wow, a medieval banquet complete with feasting, drinking, dancing and general merry-making ...how can you beat that? Well, you can add a few awesome Bond cars, that's how! Your festive evening sounds perfectly wonderful - glad you had a great time!

    More hugs for ((30 Roses)) - you certainly deserve all you can get. xo

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Now that sounds like a great day!

    Neil Morris Prowl this morning, I am at work for a few hours, and tomorrow market day for my side job. Kids are with me though so I feel better about all the workin'.

    30R, so sorry it's been tough for you, your mama is so lucky to have you near and even though it is so hard, it is nice you get these years with her too...

    I'm wearing A*Men Pure Havane today, a wonderful honeyed tobacco scent. It's very cold here, but the snow missed us (thank goodness!)

    E, sounds like an interesting course! Have fun and learn lots!

    JR, enjoy your holiday celebration!

    Sending hugs to 30 Roses and her mom and of course, for everyone else!

    Tea Rose Amber, got it for 5 bucks. It reminded me of Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, a little. No herbs like in AS though...less quality of course. I think the Tea Rose has a bit more white musk quality to it instead of herbs. Has a bit of rose and patchouli I think? The TR doesn't smell good at first spray at all..after a while the amber comes out and it's better but just not for me. AS, I just get amber and oregano.
