    Good morning everyone! I did my nails last night, which is a feat in and of itself because I have a hard time sitting still long enough for them to dry properly, and usually end up messing one up (which I did, but I am not starting over this AM!). So I am feeling rather prim and proper today, so Chanel 31 rue Cambon it is.

    Cello, you need Quick Dry nail polish, LOL. That is what I let the little kids use; it really does dry fast!

    Good morning, good smelling people. It is stormy here and the sky was so awesomely beautiful this morning, sort of purple and gray and all moving.

    Neil Morris Prowl for today.

    Usually wake up at 5 to walk the dog and then run, because it's the only time I can pretty much count on not having to do anything else...Today I was going to sleep in (well, till 6:30) instead but the dog had other ideas, he came and got me up. I guess he is my workout partner.

    Sick but after I drop son off I am able to stay home with hot tea and the telly. About all I can smell is Amarige, so Amarige it is.

    Kalli, oh no, not you too! We're thinking our card problem may have come from Neiman Marcus, should know sometime soon.

    Antibiotic/antiviral vibes for you, Jujy.
    I owe my favorite J.R. a PM once I'm back at the computer.
    I'm only pecking on the Kindle this a.m. before heading out to Home Depot, Menards, Goodwill, Kohl's, and Woodman's.
    I'll see if there's anything worth sampling at Kohl's, but I expect I'll prefer the lumber fragrance at Home Depot to the mostly celebri-scents offered at Kohl's. However, I've got a 30% off mailer from Kohl's, so I at least have to shop for new bras. Most of mine are underwired under only one boob anymore. Some of you gals know what I'm talking about--the steel band fractures and pokes into you, so you pull it out. What's weird is that it's not always just the left or right.

    Happy birthday to Leesee!!!

    Healing vibes and good tea to [b]jujy/b], and Quarry, On extending the 'life' of errant underwires (mine don't break so much as cut through the lining and migrate up under my arm -ouch!) I usually push the pesky wire back in and close off the hole it's worn in the bra lining with electrical tape, as I've absolutely no skill or patience with sewing.

    Chose Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin today, from a sample. Very, very nice, though I think I can survive on samples or dec*nts for the nonce. The *other* Lutens Fille (en Aiguilles), however, I'm pretty sure will be a bottle purchase for me once I work through my current (hearty) dec*nt. Could just be the weather, though, as my first thought upon apply LFdB this morning was, "Ooooooo, it's too chilly and grey for this luscious rose today..."

    La Fille de Berlin notes: Rose, violet, pink and black pepper, 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...

    jujy, I hope you feel better soon. It's so lousy being that stuffed up. You could make a DIY Tubereuse Criminelle by adding some Vicks Vapo-Rub to that Amarige

    LOL, Quarry! No way I wear anything with just one underwire. Oh, the humanity! No, I keep stuffing that pesky wire back in until there's no escaping the stabs to the armpit, and into the trash it goes. Some new, frothy unmentionables sound quite lovely, now that you mention it....

    I'm note-twinned with Kiliwia and ComDiva in my new favorite rose, VC&A Rose Velours. This does for rose what VC&A Bois d'Iris does for iris. And with violet, honey, and cedar, this was a no-brainer for me. Swoon-worthy.

    In a nod to my friend Paige, I'm planning to have my sister up for a weekend of bonding and spa treatments.

    Jujy45 hope you get your nose back soon!

    Quarry, if the bra is worth salvaging; you can buy new underwires and stuff them in. I once had a bleeding wound from an underwire which broke in the middle of the day.

    My SotD is Balmain de Balmain, perfume. Divine. A spicy chypre.

    BALMAIN_DE_BALMAIN_W.jpg
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Sadly, I have to get the underwires or my bras ride up under my chin. You'd think if they can construct a decent bridge, they could invent a successful, comfortable bra!

    Seriously, how is this so difficult. My issue usually tends towards the fact that they always fall off my shoulders and so few offer a racer option. I know this is common so I often wonder why is it so difficult to simply sew the straps closer in to the spine???

    I'm still sporting last nights BaV but I'm off to the showers so that'll change soon.

    A quick check in the Women's SOTD thread is always rewarded with something extra-interesting.

    I've heard much from MrsStPaul on these same issues. The Natori brand has been a huge success (and relief) in this matter.

    All righty then! Sampling ELdO's Divin'enfant today. Have a good day/evening, all.

    Twolf, are you serious about having influenza one? I sure hope you don't have it.

    RHM, I think Turin and Sanchez were off the mark with their reviews of Mona's perfumes. I think she was a great talent. So glad you got a chance to meet and visit with her, that's very special.

    Twolf, yes, were you serious? A good friend of mine got the H1N1, she is ok but got very sick and it developed into pneumonia. There is serious stuff going around for sure.

    I need to try more Mona scents.

    Lupines, lumpines bring me more lumpines!

    I hope no one else gets this dreadful flu. So far the flu shot has worked for me (knock on wood).

    I guess the perfume business is like most; it's not what you know, it's who you know and who likes you. One of Mona's other great scents is Chamarré. A very unusual take on lavender done with aldehydes. I usually don't respond to lavender but this one is deep and dark with the contrast of frothy aldehydes. Hard to explain, unforgettable.
