    Jon and Mike it would be my pleasure and privilege to be your tour guide if you find yourself round this way

    Trilby Lark enjoy Prince Igor, it looks pretty spectacular. Your day sounds like bliss to me.

    ErinK Marisa Tomei is a cutie! Rock the red lipstick.

    Another big hug to ((((Quarry)))) I hope today looks brighter. Attending a swish birthday party this evening looking forward to catching up with friends who I've been neglecting. Sweltering again today and I’m craving No.5.

    Good morning all !. A day of total relaxation planned after a lengthy ramble along the Grand Union Canal yesterday





    Old England at it's finest - woodsmoke from canal boats, traditional pubs with log fires, tranquility reigning supreme.


    Out earlier replenishing the feeders and already been rewarded with a spectacular visitor.






    SotD is Miller Harris Citron Citron.

    Hello all,

    Caron - Pour une Femme

    Enjoy your Sundays!

    ((((((Quarry))))) -- all these and more are yours whenever you need them. And when you're ready, we're here to listen.

    ErinK, I'm not a bit surprised -- there's a definite resemblance, and I'm betting a similar cheery vibe

    Jon, your outing sounds heavenly! Woodsmoke on the water! Swoon

    I'll bet you know how to properly do up a swish party, Xscent -- and, my, you'll be a sparkly belle! Enjoy reconnecting with your friends.

    I'm so glad you're enjoying your getaway, Mike -- we often become desensitized to all the noise in our lives. Embrace the peace and quiet.

    Speaking of peace and quiet, it's beginning! I'm at the airport, getting ready to board, and I'll be at the spa in about 6 hours, with a 90-minute traditional Thai massage as my first treatment. The fragrances making the trip with me are CdG Zagorsk, Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, AbdesSalaam Attar Hindu Kush and Broom, my constant travel companion (for the trip home) Daim Blond, and a last-minute addition just in case I want a soft floral, Prada Infusion d'Iris EDP

    My SotD is Infusion d'Iris layered with Molecule 01. YUM!

    shades, my vote is for Daim Blond -- I find it a very versatile fragrance, and the iris and apricot are lovely.

    Aaaaaand, my flight is delayed. Seriously. The first flight out on a plane that's been here all night and they're only just now finding a maintenance issue? (Deep breaths)

    Loving, warm, scented hugs to {{{{{{{{{{Quarry}}}}}}}}}} and to anyone else who wants or needs them. xo

    Thank you for the beautiful images that appear in this thread today and every day.

    Shades I'd go with Fleurs d'Oranger. It's just so luscious.

    SOTD is Chanel #22. Wish you all a lovely Sunday.

    Hi all,

    ExtremeK; hope you're on your way soon, & have a wonderful break!

    Vintage Diorissimo EDC for me today. Fleeting, but oh so beautiful.

    Have a lovely Sunday, everyone.

    Frozen water line. They couldn't have predicted that might happen when they left the plane sitting out overnight in below-zero (F) weather? And maybe, I don't know, BLOW OUT THE WATER LINES before shutting down the plane for the night?

    All the other airlines seem to have anticipated this crazy possibility, and they're all departing on time. Sigh.

    I'm not starting this spa vacation in a very serene state of mind.

    Snowing here, the world looks lovely outside.

    I plan to pile up in bed with a cup of hot chocolate & a good book.

    SOTD is from a sample I grabbed last night before bed; By Killian Flower of Immortality. It's lovely! I must have a "thing" for white peach.
    I'm definitely enjoying the sample but as for buying a FB….not at that price for something so fleeting.

    Good morning, everyone -

    It's a *gorgeous* day here, perfect for tennis. Tony's in Chanel Eau de Cologne, and I'm in Sylvie's beautiful, apparently almost brand new Dior Escale à Parati, and boy, this is *so* nice! I just looove that amazing petitgrain note ...so freakin' addictive. There's just no way we won't be the best smellin' couple on the courts.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Oh, (((ExtremeK))) ...*ugh!* That's no way to start a relaxing spa-cation! But I'm sure things are about to get better for you, and by the time you see this you will have already started on the next several days of supreme, serene bliss ....aahhh, that's better.


    Have a *sublime* time!

    Jon, Your photos area always gorgeous!

    I haven't seen Escale a Parati in any of our stores, and I know it it's been out for a while. I so wish our Nordstrom would keep up. Must read more on it, see whether it's worth buying a sample.

    ExtremeK, I hope you are well under way by now. Enjoy your trip!

    RHM, we were supposed to get a real storm but now it sounds like we may only get an inch. Yay!

    SotD..hmmm...I have no idea what I want to wear yet. Later!

    ExtremeK- Hope the flight leaves and your spa vacation is relaxing, serene and spiritual. Good choices on the fragrances
    Shadesbleu - I would go for Fleurs d'Oranger, the DB is a Serge scent I never quite cared for.
    Jon - love your description of your day. It paints a beautiful picture
    30Roses - thank you for your mini reviews of Jour de Fete, good news.

    Lakeland has been so relaxing. I leave today for the drive back home. I might stop off in Ft. Lauderdale on the way down - there is a outdoor music festival in the park and Sheena Easton is performing (OMG I used to luv her!)

    Good morning!

    Been a lazy day so far, sippin' joe and researching grad schools. It is a GORGEOUS day, so Rocky and I are heading to Raleigh to the dog park. Hopefully it goes better today than last time. If he hitches on to a little dog this time I'm going to conscientiously ignore it, and wait for the parents to take the little dog to the little dog park.

    Easygoing SOTD today is Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar. This isn't one I particularly endorse, smells a bit like coconut Play-Doh. Really more a preventative measure; I go right by a Saks and need to *NOT* go sniff/sample/buy anything new!

    Good morning! We're having the coldest temps we've had all year, it got down to -50 below wind chills during the night. Hopefully the worst of the temps will soon be over for the year. Xscent your weather sounds so wonderful to me and very tempting I might add.

    (((Quarry)))

    ExtremeK, I hope you have a very relaxing spa trip, it sounds heavenly!

    Wearing Reglisse Noire this morning, I see a bottle of this in my future.





    Have a nice Sunday, everyone!

    I wore this one yesterday, and I can totally see it. I also noted that there is a distinct resemblance to Antaeus, making me think that Polge leaned on BdI just a bit for inspiration when he created Antaeus.

    I'm afraid this one is going to harass me until I buy a bottle.

    Smooch. Smooch. Smooch. Smooch.
    Your loving support was just the salve I needed to lessen the sting from which I'm already starting to heal. Honestly, your imagined embraces and visible words affected my mental state more than seems possible.
    When I'm back on a real keyboard, I'll be less cryptic about the sad news.

    Bond ILNY for Mothers, I forgot what a (sort of low I.Q.) sweetie you are. Tobacco, civet, oakmoss, rubber--you surely have a place in my olfactory life, but sometimes sweettart fruit and synthetic musk are simply more uplifting.

    ExtremeK, I trust the 90-minute massage has undone that flight delay.
