    Hi everyone,

    ErinK my bloody brillant b-night may have to be repeated soon. Sexy is state of mind, or at least that’s what I tell myself when I’m looking rather bedraggled on my morning run and a cute guy is coming the other direction.

    Danie sending get-well vibes to your sweet George.

    ((ExtremeK)) and a . I’m all for manufacturing the ‘good’ in my day if it hasn’t come by on its own. I highly recommend this approach. Is it almost spa time?

    FrouFrou Bacall can throw a death look like no other. How clever of you to tie in your décor motifs, I'm going have to get a plan together for my 'junk' soon.

    Shadesofblue Chocolate cake and frosting? Awww, you're a good mum. Hope your son enjoyed his birthday.

    30 Roses lob some snowballs my way? It’s unbearably warm here.

    Vintage Derby today mossy, woody, green wonder. After the glorious citrus and florals fade away the leather, patchouli laced wood base is addictive sniffing. Missed Une Fleur de Cassie so that’s my SotE. Wishing you a wonderful day.

    Larimar, and this is exactly how I'm feeling about Shaimar now. Each morning I try picking something else, and everything else falls short.

    Good afternoon all !. 30 Roses, I'll have a few snowballs too if you can throw this far


    SotD is Creed Royal Oud.










    Won't be able to check in later, I'm afraid . Our home computer is going in for repair this afternoon, so I will have to settle for a quick in and out during work hours for the time being. Looking forward to being back on a regular basis again. See y'all tomorrow - take care, folks.


    Get well soon, George

    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..."

    Xscent and Jon, consider the snowballs lobbed!

    Looks like the next big storm may be coming a week from now. But warm weather is expected the next few days so some of this piled-up snow will melt.

    Today's scent is L'Ombre Dans L'Eau.

    "Typing" from my Kindle to say I just emptied a vial of Bois de Violette onto myself and my flannel shirt. Heading out for groceries for the first time in 15 days. The sun makes it feel springlike, but more cold, snow, wind, and thunder(!) are predicted.

    Will say more when I get back and turn on computer.

    Hey, 30Roses, regarding snowbanks: You show me yours, and I'll show you mine.

    Danieq, in a few weeks I'll be seeing Arizona for the first time as I pass through on the train. Will wave atcha.

    Kbe, where did you come across your Omnia?
    I am forever searching for some online, since it has
    been discontinued in favour of all the Green Jade,
    Cristalline, Amethyste side kicks. I really miss miss
    the original and hope you don't love it too much for
    your sake!!

    I am wearing YSL "Y" and loving every moment of its development.

    30 Roses - I feel a little better today, so I think the workout yesterday (and lot's of chicken soup & rest last night) helped. I am so glad you like the Agua Lavanda. When I wear it now, I actually pour it from the bottle on me. It's a huge honking bottle and I can really splash it on. I like wearing it underneath Mouchoir de Monsieur and Jicky. Otherwise, I feel like on it's own, it's not really my thing.
    Curly11 - I think what Robin-in-Fl meant was that here in FL it can be so deathly-humid-hot that anything bordering on sweet or confectionery can feel cloying and invasive when we wear it. It's not just HOT, it's sticky hot. Of course, this is totally subjective & some people find wearing sweet scents in hot humid weather not a problem at all.
    ErinK - welcome back home. Please try the Prada. It's immediately discernible as an Andrier creation. It's not groundbreaking but it is very fresh and yet I do not think it screams 'masculine'.
    Danieq - ((bear hugs)) to George
    Quarry - how do you like the BdV? I never really 'fell' for the Luten's Bois scents. Most of them just left me sort of cold.
    Jon - that picture makes me think about my trip in Russia @ the St. Petersburg Museum & those magnificent palaces they have. Good luck with the IT work on your PC.


    Robin-in-FL, I found my sample! So I'm in:

    Reglisse Noire by 1000 Flowers



    Wow, I see what you mean. This is more dusky, very brown-sugar-spicy & yet it has a nice, sheer almost aldehydic quality to the woods that keep it light and sort of transparent. It's not as minimal as the Hermes and not as 'thick' as the Slumberhouse, it manages to walk the middle line between both. Very nice. The radiance is wonderful, I am in a medium sized bubble of licorice. Thanks for the tip Robin. If anyone wants a sample of this, PM me, I have a huge sample & I can share.

    Good morning, everyone! Another beautiful warm day in store for us today and I intend to enjoy it to the fullest. Starting Friday it's back below zero for the next week.

    Wearing Cacharel Loulou from 1987 this morning, with notes including aniseed, iris, jasmine, cassia, lily, mimosa, plum, violet, cinnamon, heliotrope, orris root, orange blossom, pot marigold, tuberose, ylang ylang, benzoin, musk, sandalwood, vanilla and frankincense. This one is a powerhouse, but I love it!





    Have a great day!!

    Good morning, Mike I am happy you are enjoying the Reglisse Noire...I am on my second bottle of that, actually, even with it's seasonal fussiness.

    Curly11, Mike hit it on the head, it just doesn't smell good in the heat, loses its transparency and, I don't know, just melts in an unpleasant way. it's a "cold" smell. By cold, of course, I only mean "not hot", it was 70F yesterday, that's our winter.

    I'm in Alien this morning. One of the daughters loves it, the other recoils in horror. Very amusing.

    Also - I am going to put a plug in here for the Cerave cream and lotion - these are very affordable and available in drugstores/target/walmart, are unscented so they don't interfere with your other smells, but the feel of them and the effectiveness are way out of proportion to how much they cost. They are gentle enough that I can put 'em on my face too, which is, in fact, what I use them for most often. No sunscreen, no fragrance, just very effective moisture.

    Robin-in-FL, thanks for the cream recommend, will check it out. I'm not happy with what I am currently using as it's unscented scent lasts and lasts.(Vaseline unscented).

    George says thanks to all for the well wishes. His procedure is today so I'll report back when I know how he fares.

    Quarry, I'll be the one jumping up and down while you wave. Enjoy the vistas, however brief!

    I'm sampling El Attareine today. It's definitely Lutens but my initial impression says it's not quite FB worthy.

    Good morning!

    Back to work after a few days off and trying not to be a grump about it. Also, will have to hit the gym today for the first time in a few days, and after the past few days of overindulging at home (homemade biscotti, homemade cherry pie which mom and I made - she taught me how to make pie crust, lots of dining out), I must get back to the diet and exercise. Bah. Humbug.

    Count me among those enjoying the warm temps and temporary reprieve from the snow and various vortices that have descended on the US this year. It's tripping my spring cravings. Yesterday was lilacs, today is orange blossom: Houbigant Oranger en Fleurs. Tomorrow -- more snow, so perhaps I'll join Xscent in UFdC

    Speaking of joining Xscent, I'm with you on making your own fun, your own happiness, your own "here's what really matters to me." Now I have to practice it. Or, as I'm sure to hear at the spa starting in about 10 days (woo hoo!!!!!!), I need to practice living with greater intention.

    Glad you and the Rockster are home safe and sound, ErinK -- embrace the treadmill! You'll smell lovely doing it, regardless.

    More hugs for danie and George. I'll wave at you ( and maybe Quarry, too) when I land in Phoenix.

    Happy hump day, all!
