    Good morning all !. In synch, after draining the last drops from a decant - Carthusia Numero Uno.







    Herbal, soapy, and unashamedly Mediterranean. I doubt if this would figure in many top ten chypre lists but I've always regarded it as one of the finest. Pour Monsieur would have been an obvious choice today - woud it be sacrilegious to admit that I prefer this ?. I'll be staying in synch for the evening with the greatest chypre of them all (you know which one ).

    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..."

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for all the get well wishes. Feeling a little more human today. A quick hi, bye and catch up later as my dinner has just arrived.

    Synching with Sublime today. This floral chypre is my sunshine in a bottle.

    inneespenes go for it! How often do we stumble across someone that really piques our interest? Good luck and you smell fab, love Mitsouko.

    Good morning all! Glad Xscent is feeling a little better.

    Daughter is on a school outing all day, gets back late, so hubby and I have an extended date day (yay!) We're heading out soon to the shoreline to bop around, get lunch etc.

Saw some amazing vistas of U.S. Southwest going through Arizona and New Mexico yesterday. The particular route we took is likely to cease operation, so the experience means all the more.

    Feeling very welcome here with my special cousin. Wearing Bois des Iles. Can't believe I'll be at Scent Bar tomorrow.

    Also (mostly) out of synch in Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo - Mirto di Panarea, though it's plenty "spring-y" if not a full-blown chypre.

    Fabulous Friday to everyone!

    Blu Mediterraneo Mirto di Panarea notes: Myrtle, Calabrian lemon, sweet orange, basil, jasmine, rose, green lilac, aquatic notes, black currant leaves, precious wood, juniper, cedar and warm amber.
    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

    Full belly and time on my hands, so it's going to be a long post.

    Jon for yesterday and I'm putting that restaurant on my bucket list of places to eat.

    Mike Yayyyy for aircon

    30 Roses's enjoy your extended date day, sounds lovely.

    Shades glad to hear Mr Shades surgery went well, I haven’t sniffed L'Heure de Nuit yet but I do love LHB so on the sniff list it goes.

    ComDiva :lolK: you’ll be happy to know the stern talk worked. A good sign is I finally felt like eating so I ordered take out, set up a romantic dinner for one and scoffed my coq au vin with a glass of Beaujolais Cru.

    Kalli you been having a run with the shipping issues. Have my fingers crossed it arrives soon.

    Easyfish I’m going to sit next you and inhale deeply for a bit.

    Teardrop your kerrias are lovely and sfmedusa what a treat to have such beautiful blooms in your garden too. I’m glad the news about the knee is better than expected.

    ((Mocha)) what a relief your mum out of hospital and doing better. Take care of yourself too, it’s stressful all round when a loved one is unwell.

    Might as well confess here too, I’ve bought Daim Blond (lemming plus I love leather), Fleurs de Citronniers and vintage parfums of Shalimar, L’Origin and Nuit de Noel this week. I’m firmly in the ErinK camp of impulsiveness.

    Twins with the dear Quarry, I'm so excited for your visit.

    It’s finally cooled down (21C!) and there’s a chance of rain so tonight I’m snuggled up in bed in the deliciously cosy Bois des Îles with a few episodes of House of Cards. Maybe my sniffer is off kilter but does anyone else pick up similarities between BdÎ and Sublime?

    This is very tangy with bergamot and tangerine or mandarine/citrus. I sense Vetiver and moss, too. An old-style golden chypre.

    Right now, a home made four seasons pizza and a NZ pinot noir await my attention.
