    Good morning all !. Weather outside looks pretty vile - one has to feel sympathy for those areas with flood warnings still in place. When we were approaching Heathrow a couple of weeks back we were amazed by the amount of surface water everywhere. The uncertainty for those involved must be mentally draining. Somerset looks particularly bad.


    Definitely a tennis theme here today. SotD is Penhaligon's Racquets Formula.





    Chosen in preparation for today's Australian Open Final - I imagine Mrs E will be enjoying it .

    Mike sounds like you had a wonderful time. I love a nice pair of shoes and yours sound very swish, especially the heel. As for enabling my lipstick graffiti urges I restrained myself from decorating the walls but I may mark something else before I leave beige bathroom tiles.

    Heavens Ms ExtremeK you smelled extraordinary! That is a reality altering combination of drink and scent. Now were there any oysters?

    Much happier after ComDiva's comparison of Bois des Îles. In Acqua di Parma Colonia today. Still in need of hugs but I’ll make do with macarons, trash fiction and a sample of Lipstick Rose this evening.



    I definitely get a whack of aldehydes, sweet violet and berry at the beginning before it settled down to tea rose, vetiver, vanilla and musk. Quite deceptive this one you think it’s all sweet and innocent then slowly something altogether sexier and substantial starts to develop.

    Afternoon All,

    Vintage L'Heure Bleue extrait today.
    Props to Wawrinka for his win at the tennis.

    Have a great Sunday, folks.

    l agree Jon, the weather is indeed vile, & every time it rains l feel for those poor folks getting flooded. This is surely the wettest winter we've had in many a year.

    What a bizarre tennis final that was!

    No plans to leave the house today; l'm wearing Tabac Aurea to do a few chores & then relax with a glass of vino.

    Have a lovely Sunday, everyone! And enjoy those macarons, Xscent. Have one for me!

    In sympathy for those dealing with bad weather. It snowed again yesterday, dumping another four inches onto what we'd just finished clearing. Just enough to be a nuisance. Ugh.

    SOTD is Donna Karan Gold. Wish you all a great day.

    No oysters, unfortunately, Xscent -- but there was an amazing bison meatloaf to kick off the night

    Also, David *adores* M -- perhaps more than Amber Absolute, even. I think a 60ml bottle is in my near future!

    Feeling a tad tender this morning. More espresso necessary, I think.

    Meanwhile, I dug out my sample of PG Indochine, and I'm really enjoying it. M. Guillaume seems to be scratching all of my olfactory itches this winter.

    Xscent, consider me extremely envious of your sighting - the Bali Starling is critically endangered and being an endemic species it is unlikely ever to cross my radar. Impressed .


    In need of a relaxing way to round off the weekend. Decided on a glass of merlot and the soothing qualities of vintage L'Heure Bleue extrait. Combinations don't come much better ...

    Yes, flooding must be draining. [insert rolly eyes]

    ExtremeK, don't sell me on that Pure Distance line. I don't want to lose control of my wallet when I visit The Scent Bar in two months.

    There's a bottle of Mosel Riesling chilling on the concrete floor in the unheated back hall. We usually drink reds, but special occasions call for having something different from the norm. It's our 35th wedding anniversary today, and I'm wearing his favorite: the resin-rich ICONOfly Attache Moi.

    Hello everyone! Well the weatherman was right, we have blizzard conditions today. Very nasty outside right now, especially the wind.

    Happy 35th Anniversary to Quarry and Mr. Q. I hope you have a very happy day together!!

    Congratulations Quarry and Mr.Q!



    I had no time to rest this weekend, cleaning the house, cooking and driving my daughter to lessons most of the day ( thanks God it's her last year at school!).

    Reading your posts I really need a glass of wine too now, but my husband would not be very happy if I opened a bottle for myself and then I have already finished drinking an orange-vodka cocktail so...

    I will indulge in wearing one of my extraits, though,

    Jon, my goodness, what a gorgeous, evocative photo! I think I *want* to visit Paris in February/March, if it looks like that. LOVE.

    Happy Anniversary to the Quarries! I haven't tried any of the other Puredistance fragrances -- just M. But my gosh, Quarry, it's *divine*. It doesn't have the ashy/tarry aspect that I get from Tuscan Leather, but that leather is just damn luxurious and the patchouli/moss/cistus/musk combination is the sexiest thing I've ever smelled. While Cuir d'Russie, Bandit, and Tabac Blond don't work at all for me, M kills it and fills the gap in my wardrobe represented by those other sexy, whip-smart fragrances. My hat's off to Xscent for nudging me in its direction!

    David's going to do a bespoke fragrance with Kerosene, so I've been helping him with that. So much fun!

    All this talk of M--ExtremeK--SIXTY ML?? Ohhhhh, my! I do agree that Tabac Blond, Cuir de Russie and Bandit have not been big winners for me. Yes, M is the answer!

    Today, revisiting Daim Blond. Did like the first sampling several months back but it has grown on me.

    The cold persists here; I'm taking it easy today and just reading a book. I slept very late. Scent is beyond me today.
