    Kewart, much sympathy on the chicken pox from me with my shingles. Do get the shingles vaccine when you can.

    I am delighted to sync today with Estee Lauder Private Collection. One of my favorite scents of all time.

    I'm actually hoping to have time tonight to get a spritz of Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia from Macy's before walking over to attend Alvin Ailey's opening night here in Chicago.

    Wow Puma. It doesn't get much better than that!! What a glorious smelling day you are having.

    Oh Kewart. Deary me. No scratching now. Poor thing.

    Well, Estee Lauder, as I said in a long post in the synch, I have having a bit of a crush on Estee Lauder right now. I am loving Azurée, Private Collection and Wood Mystique. I don't actually have any of them though!! I must do something about that.

    Anyway, sans parfum today as I have been cooking home made curry. A bath now and it is Wine O'Clock as I am off this weekend. Hurrah! I'm having a nice relaxing night. Might do a bit of Hypnotic Poison. Cosy.

    I am in synch with ''Knowing'' Estee Lauder. Have been very busy but enjoyed all the posts And the photos, and Xscents boots!
    I need to step up. Will post later with a good photo. Had a very bad night.

    Keward, Sorry you are sick. These ilnesses are a breeeze when you are a child, but horrible when you are grown up. I remember when I had the chicken pox, I was two or three, one of my few memories from that age. Don't scratch!

    ((kewart)), I hope you kick it quickly and feel better soon. Mocha, how are you doing? You're getting out and about in fine form, at least! It sounds like a great evening!

    inneespenes!!!!!!! Welcome back, sweetie! We missed you

    So, I have a synch STORY for today. My friends were gathered to watch NCAA volleyball last December at the home of one of said friend's mother (who is in her 80s -- the mother, not the friend ). Anyway, after a few drinks, I wander in the bathroom to use the facilities and what do I find but an antique wooden medicine cabinet, sans door, in which lined up are a bunch of VINTAGE minis of every old Estée Lauder fragrance you can imagine. You know, of course, what I did. I was that -- quite literally -- NOSY guest and started sniffing. I was powerless I tell you! And what looked like her oldest one was Private Collection. My eyes actually rolled back in my head. It was MAGNIFICENT! And I ran out into the living room and cried, "Oh my God, Jean, do you or your mom REALIZE the treasure trove she has in her bathroom??!! They just don't make them like this anymore!!" And of course they all looked at me like I was an absolute nutter, and I had to endure their merciless teasing the rest of the night. Anyway, I have sniffed the divine Private Collection as God fully intended it should smell, and it was glorious. So there's my synch story.

    As it happens, I hadn't looked at Basenotes until just a few minutes ago and completely by chance (except of course, that Jon's SotD from a few days ago influenced me and I'm a completely shameless fragrance copy-cat), I'm wearing the lovely Arquiste Aleksandr, so, yes, Xscent, another sandwich is in order, but surely Jon can come up with a middle more appetizing than Vegemite! I continue a sucker for violets and, yes, the leather/violets/fir balsams combination of Aleksandr is wonderful!

    Great photos, ErinK!!

    kumquat, I love your photo today. I want to be out there on the grass, watching those sheets flap in the wind. Goodness, I'm ready for spring!

    Good treasure hunting and finding, Ek!

    Tuscany Per Donna for the sync, do sniff this one if you haven't. Is this one that seems overlooked a bit? I think so. If you like Samsara, do sniff this one out.

    Earlier, I was sampling Joy again..this time, a bit heavier application of parfum. I gotta say, I smelled like a dirty, ripe, wet cat that tried to cover up the funk with jasmine. I know I like civet a little but dang, a dirty, wet fur coat, or a damp cat that that hasn't been fixed and sprayed a little, or something. That's some ripe cat. Gross. Perhaps I would like a different concentration more? Hopefully, there is less animal funk in them? Also, the name Joy seems like it doesn't fit..maybe Catminora? lol. I like jasmine but not smeared over with ripe, kitty funk.

    ExtemeK, How nice you found antique PC. It's the best! Love it! I have some in a naughty (aerosol) spray. It's glorious!
    I'm dying for spring, too. It must be near. My neighbor is going crazy sucking up leaves again with his damn blower!

    Hello again -

    We've had a rather low-key Mardi Gras season so far, but we're getting into the swing of it tonight with our first big soirée of the season, and I always like to wear Ysatis at some point during Mardi Gras so that's what I'm in for the evening. It strikes a perfect balance of opulent grandeur plus joyful exuberance, a wonderfully festive, ornamental and rich perfume and I just *love* it. We're gathering a few friends here first for a few pre-soirée cocktails during the parades (Hermes, Krewe d'Etat and Morpheus are rollin' tonight) then once they're all done the real parties begin ...and I think I'm just about ready but still have a few details to see to, so I'd better go.

    Y'all have a fabulous evening - laissez les bon temps rouler!


    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

I think a lot of people would be surprised at how many of their favorites are actually owned by a large corporation.

    Great scent you picked too.
    Thank you! I like the idea of Big Perfume day.

    LOL Jon! That bacon sandwich made me laugh!

    ((kewart)) I spent my 5th birthday in bed with chicken pox. The itching is maddening, but remember that cool compresses reduce itching. Benadryl also reduces itching but it makes one sleepy.

    ErinK, thanks for the encouragement! It was a long day but it gave us all a better idea of what their Honors program entails, and 13 students in the program presented their senior theses. We had a nice chat with the director of the So it was definitely worth it-- even if it was 17º F when we arrived. That made for one coooold walk! And now we're getting more snow Sunday and Monday.
