    I'm a longtime Bowie fan, but I don't understand the connection with Puredistance M. But, then again, it is sherry o'clock

    Wow, there are some exotic sounding holiday destinations in the pipeline. Don't forget the cameras, folks.

    We make our way back to the grey gloom of the UK later today, landing Saturday morning. I'll give a brief wave to our US contingent when we arrive in Los Angeles. What a pity we are only there in transit as NZ offers relatively little sniffing opportunities and LA would have been a nice addition to the itinerary.

    Travel scent will be Green Valley.








    Kiliwia, how dreadfully inconvenient. Good to hear that they were vigilant enough to nip it in the bud and sort things in a reasonably efficient manner.

    Safe travels Mrs E - looking forward hearing about your adventures.

    Twolf, how exciting! My mother had once travelled to Japan and she had a wonderful time there!
    ( And I still have the two nice kimonos she brought me from that trip!). Have fun!

    Xscent, you described my dream vacations! Have a great time!

    Jon, happy belated birthday!

    Yet another stressful day here. After a long day, I spent more than two hours in the bus (while my daughter was waiting for me in the street, to take her home after her evening lessons), because they had shut down most streets in the centre of Athens for the ceremony for the farse of Greece's presidency of the farse of the European Union.

    Saminlondon--it really has to do more with the fact that M is the most expensive decant I own, so a bit of a "cheers!" there. That, and the fact that M makes me a little intoxicated, as does DB!

    Thank you for all the lovely holiday wishes.

    Damn! How’s a girl supposed to concentrate with all that sheet twisting M wafting around? Have mercy ladies.

    Okay I give up, joining you in the fabulous M after this morning run. It should be renamed Mmmmmmmmm as that is all I’m capable of uttering in its presence. Now to actually pick myself up out of this leather stupor and go to work.

    Have a lovely evening everyone (I know ExtremeK and Chicagonista will).

    Hello again -

    I probably won't get another chance to check in before we leave tomorrow morning, so thanks for the send-off and the sweet pms - I sure do appreciate it! xoxo

    I'm in L'Arte di Gucci, vintage edp.

    Y'all take care, be happy, and stay fragrant ...bye!



    (((Jon))) - thanks again, sweetie. You have a safe trip home!

    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

    Thank you *dora* - I absolutely will!

    It's *so* nice to see you around here again, but I sure wish you were having an easier time these days. Big hopeful hugs to you -

    WOW, all these wonderful trips! Evangeline, go get 'em and have a fabulous time!

    XScent and Twolf, since your excursions are just a bit further off, savor the anticipation, and please make sure as Jon says, to bring cameras - and remember to snap a few pics for your BN friends and family!

    Speaking of Jon, you may be home by now (or flying over my house near Boston [:waves "up" frantically and hops up and down:]) but if by any chance you get delayed in LA, make the airline send you over to Luckyscent's Scent Bar for a couple of hours. I've yet to visit in person, but that's probably a good thing, as they'd likely never get me to leave. Also, happy belated birthday!!! Sorry to have missed the actual big day, but it sounds like you've been celebrating properly.

    And welcome back, Mike!!! Glad to see your posts again, scent brother mine.

    Also Dora! Glad you were able to check in...

    Oh, and just to clarify, while my husband and I do cook like mad for our New Year's Day open house, many of our guests also enjoy contributing to the festivities with (vegetarian) food and (boozy and non) drinks, so we get a lovely variety over the course of the day. Which does nothing for being on one's feet for 12 hours, but is still quite wonderful.

    Right - SOTD. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Absolutely perfect for the stupidly frigid weather. I just keep wanting to snuggle in to myself. Mmmm.

    Or perhaps I should just grab a sample of M and put on some David Bowie. Now *that* would be warming indeed.

    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

    Guerlain Nahema for me today. Lovely fresh roses, with a sweet retro vibe.

    We are going at the end of May -- early June, about same dates as in Morocco back in 2012.
