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..."

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... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

Hello friends. How are you all? Good I hope, and being good? Hmm? Well,on second thoughts never mind the being good, just as long as you are all OK.
I haven't been around very much at all for a while now. (I probably haven't even introduced myself to our newer people.) Our family have had a very sad situation (no need to respond, please) and I haven't had time to be here. I have read you all sometimes though, and I have been enjoying your posts, and I have still been taking refuge in fragrance.
So, I have loads to do. I don't have many new fragrances, if any?! But there is lots that I want to do. There are samples queuing up, Ormonde Jayne, Atelier Cologne, and I am "relaunching" with the help of Oriza L Legrand, which is great because they are so intriguing and they are making me engage my head as well as my nose!
And of course whatI really want is to come back to cause some mischief!! So watch out!!!
Oh! Scent of the day........
Oriza L Legrand Déjà le Printemps and Jardin D'Armide.
Take care everyone,
