    Ipp that clip was lovely, thank you.

    ((ErinK)) nesting, cooking and reading are all good and Chanel ruts are not a bad place to be either.

    ((Mike)) hope it all went well yesterday or was brief at least.

    Danieq you smelled wonderful! Cuir de Russie was love at first sniff for me and I haven’t gone a week without wearing it. I adore the vintage parfum it is one of my treasures, holy grail stuff.

    Kiliwia YAY another M fan! I also loved Antonia, I would recommend sampling Opardu if you get a chance, I’m still yet to try Black.

    teardrop and ExtremeK placed an order with my butcher, fingers crossed I’ll be making bison wellingtons next weekend.

    Finally home once again with barely enough time to unpack, do laundry and repack, starting to notice a pattern here. Off to Singapore tomorrow to see in the Chinese New Year and attend a wedding. After this trip I’m staying put until April …maybe. Carnal Flower today and very generous swipes of Cuir de Russie vintage extrait this evening.

    Morning all!

    (((((Erin))))); l am so very sorry to hear about your breakup. Nest as long as you need to, & emerge stronger & wiser when you're ready.

    Xscent; bison wellington sounds wonderful! Be safe & well on your travels. You certainly smell fab.

    Good morning all. (((Erin))) you have been conspicuous by your absence - welcome back . Really sorry to hear you have been going through a rough patch. I think you are taking the right approach just chilling and taking some time out (his loss, btw).
    I hope the posting issues get sorted (I think Foustie has been having similar problems).

    Hope everything went well, Mike

    Weil Noir again. I am zipping through this half ounce or so rarity; I find there's something to be said for wearing a scent three days in row (minimum), may do more of that this year. Noir's cool menthol and animal warmth are just what I need on this below zero day.

    Hugs for ((ErinK))-- his loss, honey!

    More hugs for ((FrouFrou)) and your sore heel. I've been taping my foot every day because of plantar fascitiis that just won't quit, so I sympathize with you. For this acute injury, remember RICE-- Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation!

    Hello folks

    Crikey, Xscent, you get around! (in the nicest possible way ) Have fun in Singapore.

    I'm in vintage L'Heure Bleue extrait today.

    Oh, and for salutary purposes I'd like to put out the following warning: vintage Arpege extrait and parquet floors do not mix

    Not feeling the best today, so just a spritz of Apres l'Ondee this morning.

    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..."

    I agree. I just wore Marni for several days and I think repeat wearings help one become more intimate with the fragrance and understand it better. I am switching it up to Angel today.

    (((ErinK))) -- definitely his loss. We have certainly missed you. I hope you can embrace the cocooning. Getting right with yourself after relationship trauma is necessary. And it takes however long it takes. Don't let anyone force a timetable on you. I'm sure Rocky is a comfort. They know when we're hurting.

    ((Mike)), I hope your meeting was quick and that whatever boxes are left to check in your process are nicked off quickly.

    Safe travels, Xscent! Do let us know how the Wellingtons turn out? I'm betting that staying close to home for a bit is starting to sound pretty good

    I'm changing things up today -- Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau. I love the opening of the this one, but it just gets too watery on me after a while. Meh. Luckily, I brought with me to work a sample of Uncle Serge's Sa Majeste La Rose for this very reason. I'll give the Diptyque another hour or so.

    A very nice layering combo


    Thanks all of you guys/gals above:Yesterday was not too bad. Was stressful but I quickly got calm & centered. Not finished yet - but on our way.

    Today, the weather is GORGEOUS. Sunny, windy, not a cloud in the blue sky. I am going to work out for lunch, to break up my day nicely. Having a coffee at my office desk now. Everything, right now, is just fine.

    All the current enthusiasm for Puredistance M here is sparking my curiosity. My only experience was a brief sniff with Mimi in Harrods last year and I'm wondering if it may be time I revisited for a proper sampling. On the radar !.

    Cold here in Dallas again. I am wearing Tabu for warmth!



    My foot is finally a lot better, for two days nothing changed, but now it's improved a lot, thank for the concern 30 roses and Kiliawa.

    Erin, things will get better and even better than before!

    30roses, I found out when reading the reviews of ''fitflops'' that everybody with plantar fascitis raves about them, I have them because they are pretty and super comfy, you can easily walk a whole day on them without your feet getting tired. But apparently the bio-engineered foot bed is heaven for anybody with plantar fascitiis. I had a friend with pf, she tried my fitflops, was amazed, brought some and is still grateful to me for suggesting it. So there you are, go and try them out.

    “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.”
