    Morning folks

    I've gone dark and a bit funky with Mitsouko PdT - one blast (and I do mean blast) for now, and will see how it goes! I have a meeting a little later and need to tread carefully ...

    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..."

    Absolutely serious, got a flu here, staying away from the computer screen. The medication our doctor figured out does not treat the cause, only signs and symptoms, and costs $162 for 5 days. Here goes another bottle of fumes. Mr.T got it too. I am over the hill though, I think.

    Merci, cher Sam.
    Ungaro II is the Poor Man's Jicky: it's built around the same citrus / lavender / vanilla / civet structure, but lacks the finesse of the Guerlains. Still, the civet is *very* prominent and I like it enough to have stockpiled several bottles. It is discontinued, but a couple of years ago there were plenty of bottles available on ebay. PM me if you'd like a sample.

    Get better soon, iodine, Wolfie and Mr. Twolf!!! And anyone else who happens to be feeling under the weather...

    After yesterday's La Fille de Berlin, I was all set to wear Lutens Fille en Aiguilles today, but was running late and couldn't put my hands on it quickly.

    S'okay, though, I still smell gorgeous (IMHO) in Guerlain Bois d'Armenie. And the touch of Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion doesn't hurt the overall vibe one bit. SO nice when that works out!

    Bois d’Armenie notes: Incense, iris, pink pepper, gaiac wood, coriander leaves, copahu balm, patchouli, white musk.

    TWolf - so sorry you & the mister are flu-ing. ((bear hugs))
    kbe - I love Fumidus, there's nothing else quite like it.
    Trilby Lark (I love your screen name) I absolutely adore Nectarine Blossom & Honey. One of my favorite JM's.

    All this civet talk got me itching to wear some Jicky, which I haven't worn in quite some time. Getting reacquainted with it is like spending time with an old family friend, and forgetting how much fun you and her have together. I love this stuff. I imagine I will always have it (and Shalimar) in my wardrobe.

    Jicky (vintage Parfum de Toilette) + a dash of vintage Shalimar extrait by Guerlain




    Got caught in a **serious** traffic jam on the way to work. A trip which normally takes me about 10 minutes took one hour! People in Miami, when there's a traffic jam, get a little crazy also. I mean they really get worked up sitting in their cars. It's quite hilarious. I listened to an entire album in the car (what else am I gonna do?) and got caught up on my text messages. Sunny day. Rained last night. Should be an easy going day. Might have a dinner date tonight with a new guy I met last weekend. Wish me luck.

    Balmain de Balmain again...

    All the best to the flu victims, one gram of vitamin C per hour, or as much as you need (which is until the symptoms go away). When I was very very sick with a really nasty flu it took 1 gram every 20 minutes for a day, but the painful throat, and snot dripping from my nose went away and I felt almost normal.

    Mike, you don't need luck -- he got lucky in meeting you! I do wish him the great good sense to call you

    I set a new record this year -- I started wishing for spring the earliest ever for me: January 6th. I'm definitely craving my "early spring" (hahahahaha) florals, too. I'm wearing YSL Cinema today.

    Hello everyone! I was to have a doctor appointment today, but the nurse called and said it's snowing so heavy there, I should reschedule. I was almost half way there, but I was glad she let me know, I don't like driving in storms. Tomorrow we're expecting a blizzard, with freezing rain, snow and wind, just hope the power stays on.

    T, Mr. T and Iodine, I hope you are all on the mend soon!

    Trilby Lark, I agree with Danieq, the combination of Nectarine Blossom & Honey and Saffron Intense Cologne would be heavenly.

    Wearing Elizabeth Arden Provocative Woman this afternoon.





    Have a good afternoon!

    I'm counteracting all of our winter dreariness today with a spritz of the fabulous spiciness and warm roses of Aqaba (that I picked up for a song on Ebay because it was misspelled!).

    I consider myself lucky not to have any of the various viruses that seem to be doing the rounds at the moment, and even more lucky to live somewhere that's not either frozen, under snow or flooded, like so many other people around the northern hemisphere are at the moment.
