Pandit. My tribute to the great Ravi Shankar.
It's mainly Sandalwood Mysore and Ylang and Oakmoss
Champaca Absolute by Tom Ford. I'm going on a hike today. Have a nice day!
Sandalwood here, too. Vintage Myrurgia Maderas de Oriente, locion formula, a grand dirty sandalwood. I'm picking up something that reminds me of my recent find, vint Weil Noir. A side-by-side sniff is in order.
Here's a photo. The locion is the tall bottle, made in Mexico. The shorter one is the perfume de tocador formula, made in Spain, cleaner, more flowers accompany the sandalwood. Each wonderful. I sometimes layer Tea Rose over the locion.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
It's surprisingly cold today here, too, with a sharp wind. I'm luxuriating in the sweet, warm embrace of Guerlain Tonka Imperiale with a cup of berry chocolate tea.
Wearing Jeke today (possibly layered with something floral) This is the first time in days I've felt like I'm actually wearing perfume! -- other than when I wore Bal à Versailles, of course. Bliss at each new whiff.
Now for a report in the on-going saga of "will ScentFan and ex-hubby re-wed?" Talk about nerves! You'd think we were teenagers instead of a couple already married 24+ years and divorced only 3! Early this morning we mutually announced doubt. Then an email arrived with a photo of a near perfect non-smallish diamond ring! However, by that time I'd decided to take a 3-day sabbatical of deep meditation and general contemplation of the universe! To paraphrase Seuss' Batholomew and the Oobleck: I cannot tell you any more. We've never seen such days before.
Hello everyone! You all smell amazing today!
Thank you for the welcome!
Today I have a bad cold so I took the day off.
No perfume, as I can hardly smell anything, I only wear
White Patchouli Body Lotion from a sample I happened to have.

Dans La Nuit Vers Le Jour Sans Adieu Je Reviens Vers Toi.
Armani Cuir Amethyste again. It is better second day in a row.
Yes, kalli, that's how cold it gets here too. Even more so with Ms.K, I am sure.
Erin, nice to see you back.
Scentfan, great to hear about the non-smallish progress in your never-ending saga. Tomorrow is our 15th wedding anniversary with Mr.T.
Hello again -
I'm in Agent Provocateur Strip for the evening ...have a good night everyone!
Well hello there, Erin - I'm so glad you stopped by! I'd gotten rather used to you around here and wondered where you'd run off to.
Early congratulations and much love to the Twolves - I wish you both all the very best. Here's to the next 15 years together; may they each be better than the last. 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
Last night's snowfall was not as bad as expected-- only about 4", so cleaning up wasn't hard. Hubby was home and school was canceled so I had lots of help.
Tonight's lows are supposed to be between -4 and -13. This is unusual for Connecticut, though.
My little orange tree is scenting the air with its blossoms.
I'm wearing April Aromatics Jasmina today. Pure sweet jasmine touched with lemon and grapefruit with a buzzy resinous base. Very nice!
Happy Friday everyone!
I've trademarked the color bleu
In a sample of
this evening. Loving this one and wishing I could find a FB.
