    Xscent, I feel for you! There was this play I wanted to see and it was always playing where I happened not to be!
    I miss London, I lived there for three years while at the Royal College of Art. I so want to go back for a few weeks, and now I moved to Dallas! Maybe I can persuade the Q to go this summer.

    Evangeline, you are so noble, so self-effacing... to be willing to take care and provide a good home for neglected bottles....

    Robin-inFl, hilarious! Yeah why not just pop over the the Neiman Marcus and spend $10.000.... Nutters! It's insulting actually. In so many dfferent ways.

    For me: I am fine again today, will be careful with food though. I tried to spritz my vintage Amazone again ths morning, a little spritz came out but nothing more and some of the juice just dribbled underneath the sprayer. Any ideas what I can do about it?
    So my SotD is still vintage Amazone by Hermès.

    Mmm, loving all these irises today!

    ExtremeK, that's too bad about Bois d'Iris; it lasts a lot longer on me than 2.5 hours. I was lucky enough to get a partial bottle from a seller here on BN for a steal. My favorite Infusion d'Iris is the EDP. I actually didn't care too much for the Absolue, which surprised me.

    kumquat, you smell great! What a beautiful painting.

    Edit to comment on Frou's GORGEOUS photo - you must have posted while I have been composing this reply. That sweet beautiful smile on your face (I love to see someone smiling with their eyes), the costume, your hair, the pearl earrings, that wonderful horse. I love it!! Thank you for sharing!

    Nice notions:
    Xscent: “Over caterer.”
    Jujy: “Force field.”
    Trilby Lark: Happy almost anniversary. Enjoy the journey.
    Frou Frou: You look like a Nordic warrior princess.

    Haven't been watching the Olympics, but have heard oodles of sad stories about the accommodations, including no pillows?! How's an athlete supposed to get a good night’s sleep. I love my small cadre of feather pillows.

    saminlondon - you will LOVE VdN extrait. It's fantastic!
    ComDiva - I am almost all out of my L'Eau d'Hiver mini bottle. I will miss it when it's gone. Although I get a similar vibe from my Apres l'Ondee
    Trilby Lark - when Tom Ford released his Private Blends, eons ago, I bought a 12-pack sampler from The Perfumed Court. I was one of the 1st BN'rs to smell all of them then (they were only sold in his Madison Ave boutique for the 1st few months). Tuscan Leather was one of the first that I fell in love with. Love that car-interior-meets-raspberry note. Enjoy!
    Xscent - I am jealous at all of the cool social events you attend. Very eclectic. I attended something similar years ago, when the Merce Cunningham Dance Company did a piece with Sigur Ros playing live.
    ExtremeK - you're welcome. I hope more people see that video. It's adorable & very uplifting. And if I had to choose one version of Infusion d'Iris it would be the Absolue.


    Wearing (from a decant from 30 Roses):

    Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia by Guerlain



    That hit of jasmine, in the top, is almost narcotic. It brought a smile to my face when I sprayed it on. To quote helg from Perfume Shrine (who is a big fan of AAFN):
    Guerlain captured the ethereal vapors of steam off these delicate, ravishing blossoms and married them to a pre-emptying summer jasmine (middle-ground indolic) and the faint whiff of cool frankincense burning inside a Greek Orthodox church preparing for the country's most devout celebration: Easter. The citrusy aspects of frankincense compliment the fruitier aspects of neroli. Musk in the form of synthetic Cashmeran is anchoring the effect on skin. Guerlain's Flora Nerolia (a part of the original line up in the Aqua Allegoria line in 2000 composed by perfumer Mathilde Laurent) is like a snapshot of late Lent in Greece and for that reason is absolutely precious to me.

    Hey y'all -

    Well, I do hate to ever be the bearer of bad news or make y'all feel obligated to sympathize (really, I'm okay) but my aunt, my mârraine, died suddenly last night and my mother is inconsolable, which is difficult to witness as I've only seen her cry about five times in my life. But even in her grief, she's got to deal with contacting relatives, arranging the funeral, and settling all the things that must be settled now, and she needs help, so we'll be flying to France this afternoon. I'm just waiting for Tony to take us to the airport (me and Mom - he and Dad will be joining us later this week.) She lived in Angers, so that's where we're going and I imagine we'll be staying in her house ....her big, sad, empty house. She had dogs ...I wonder what's being done with them. Anyway, I have no idea how long it's going to take or even when or where the funeral might be, so I guess I could be gone for a while. Y'all take care, be well and be happy. Bye. xo

    Oh, and I'm out of magnolias for now and back in roses, Shiseido's White Rose, beautiful and radiant enough to have a comforting presence and sheer and soft enough for a long, probably crowded, international flight.




    Oh, FrouFrou - is that Al Tarq? He's magnificent, and you look absolutely splendid up there! I've also been meaning to tell you that I love "Pom in the sink". I don't paint much anymore but when I did, it was usually to paint one of my cats.

    I've also been wondering where Wolfie is - hugs to you ((Wolfie)), wherever you are.

    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

    So, I found a cute dog, who was running loose as I was driving and ran across the street in front of me. I followed him and he was very friendly. He didn't have a collar. I didn't know what else to do, so I called animal control. He ended up being chipped but they brought him to the shelter anyway. I called to see if there was an update and sure enough the owners are picking him up! I am happy, as I wasn't sure if I should have handed him over to animal control but there wasn't much other options. Thank God for microchips, really, they are so great.

    Wearing a Clarins scent, from a sample, not sure which one.

    Well done, kalli - microchips may cause the occasional abscess but the benefits far outweigh that.
    We had a van full of stolen dogs recovered locally as the thieves didn't know the chip info., - they sell them if they're gun dogs, breed them if possible or use them for fighting.
