    Morning all!

    lt's wet & miserable outside today, so l'm off to work shortly in warm, dry Encens Flamboyant to counteract the damp.

    Have a good week, everyone!

    Pure Perfume
    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..."

    Good morning everyone!

    The water heater they installed with our new boiler on Thursday is defective; the technicians discovered this as they were installing it but naturally didn't have a spare one on hand at the time. So it's another day of hanging around waiting for service.

    I'm wearing YSL In Love Again to brighten the day.

    Oh, they installed it anyway...it was that, or no hot water. But the leakage has not been a problem yet, and soon enough we'll have the new unit. All our problems should be so easy to solve.

    30 Roses - how frustrating that sounds. It looks like you have a postiive attitude about it though. Good for you. I love In Love Again - one of JCE's best.


    Shanghai (Les Voyages Olfactifs 05) by Guerlain



    I have this Almond scented hair conditioner that since my hair is short on my head I use to condition my beard (it keeps it from itching). Every time I smell it I think of this scent, so this cool morning (temperatures finally came down a bit here in S. Fla) I reached for this one. Such a lovely scent. So much more than almond, it does that light-heliotrope-whispery-gourmand thing so perfectly. I have always compared this to a lighter version of Quand Vient la Pluie by Guerlain & this morning the comparisons are very evident.

    K ~ Did Mr. Kiliwia bag any trophies (beyond the Guerlain, that is) on safari? I wonder, too, did he sense anything historic in this Mandela-end-of-life era?

    Mimielle ~ Doesn't Royal Oud just make you melt? Mr. Q wore some fresh from the shower Saturday, and the warmth of it — Wowser!

    Mike, pretty sure this is the first time I've used this phrase: I want to nuzzle your beard.

    I'm waiting on two women who are scouting our house for a future women's club tour. Everything is vacuumed, laundered, dusted and positioned with obsessive intent. Now if I can just control my babble. Never seem to manage conveying the depth and breadth of history contained in every corner without mental jackrabbiting.

    The house is ever so slightly fragranced: The tassel hanging from a ceiling fan over the bed holds Demeter Wet Garden, the door leading to the pantry got a short shot of herbal Borsari Macchia Mediterranea, the runner on the floor in the bathroom got a spritz of Yves Rocher Green Tea. I have a light spray of Marni around my neck. If anything, I err on the side of discretion when spraying. I think the effect will be subliminal.

    Late to the party but I have been smelling decadent all day in Roja Dove's Fetish (Pour Femme). Oh, dear. Very expensive and absolutely gorgeous. ::runs - again - to freeze credit cards in blocks of ice.::

    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

    Hey again, y'all -

    I usually find myself in the mood for Chanel 31RC after a morning of 1932 (so much for my attempts to stay out of Chanel for ballet - I just can't do it) but I stopped myself this afternoon. It's cool enough here to really enjoy Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady, so that's what I'm doing ...a big, sultry, rosy cloud of it.

    SOTD: Hermes Eau des Merveilles edt over the body cream for work today. (Elemi, bitter orange, Italian lemon, Indonesian pepper, pink pepper, “ambergris accord”, oakwood, cedarwood, vetiver, balsam of Peru, benzoin)

    SOTE is TDC Rose Poivree, the original skank-fest, not the more recent, "tamer" version. (Damascus rose, rose bay, pepper, coriander, vetiver, civet) This is the scent which taught me how very much I enjoy the combination of rose & vetiver.

    All sounds lovely, Quarry. Curious about Demeter, I ordered minis and smelled this one today. So nice, as are the other Demeters I've encountered. Must read up on this house of inexpensive lovelies.

    Well, good night scented friends. Turning in reeking of Carons from my sniff samples. Happiness.
