    Happy Monday!

    Late afternoon post from me as I’ve decided to take a ten minute coffee break before many more hours at the office, it's going to be a verrryyy long day.

    ((ExtremeK)) thanks sweetie I had your voice in my head chanting ‘breathe’ and ‘treat yourself’ when I downed a dozen oysters and glass of champagne before the ballet. How’d I do? .

    Cello perfectly okay to ponder a while but I’m going to give you a gentle enabling push to acquire and enjoy.

    ((ErinK)) the right job will come along.

    Just dawned on me I have less than a month before I’m off on holiday and I’ve only organised half of my accommodation. I’ll be homeless on the streets of Paris at this rate.

    Was in Attimo this morning (not sure why) but after a quick sampling session at Mecca I’m now in Sa Majeste La Rose. I was completely unaware this one existed. I’m not usually a fan of a huge rose note (except for Rose 31) but this one drew me in. I'm going to join Cello and ponder this one. Have a lovely day everyone.

    Hello everyone! Was up all night with my seven-month old daughter, Mila, who decided that she wanted to play, poke mam in the eye, practice her snorting noises, etc. rather than going to sleep like, you know, normal people. I am soothing frazzled nerves with dabs of Vol de Nuit extrait and several heavy sprays of the EDT to give it "body". I went online in the middle of the night to buy a 93ml refill of the EDT for 75 euros, just because I felt like I deserved to have new perfume just for being awake, which goes to show how far my sickness has developed....

    ClaireV - hold on in there! It will get better and
    you are right to wear perfume "because you're worth it!"

    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..."

    Good morning, everyone!

    Well, this is our last full week at home for the rest of the summer ...last week of ballet, last week of wee ballerinas, last week to be with family and friends. We leave for Paris on the 22nd, which still sounds rather distant but is really just a week from Thursday, and as excited as we are about it, that suddenly seems *way* too soon ...eek! There's actually not much left to do besides last minute packing, but I know this week is going to fly by ...and then the dozens of incredibly important things that still need doing will occur to me, hehe. But this really is no time to coast - my ballet troupe has another takeaway show (aka ballet flash mob in the park) this weekend, and this one will be ever-so-slightly more publicized, so we'll really have to be on our toes (hehe - pun totally intended.) We've got a lot of work to do starting this morning, and I'm in plenty of vintage Miss Dior for it, 60s parfum and edt. Yeah, I think this'll do nicely.

    Y'all have a great day!




    Hi there, Wolfie - I suppose y'all are gearing up for your departure, too. How *exciting* - you're going to have the time of your lives!

    Editing to add some hugs and encouragement for ((Erin)) regarding the job situation. You're casting your net pretty wide and giving yourself lots of options, which is *awesome* - go for it! It might take a little longer than you expect, but just be patient - I have absolutely no doubt you'll find exactly the right fit in the right place, and the wait will have been well worth it. And in the meantime, you have a nice new boy to play with - that's exciting, too! Enjoy this time - it's sort of fun, not knowing everything that's going to happen.

    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

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia today, roll-on borrowed from the kids' perfume box, over coconut body butter. Nice and summery.

    ETA: shadesofbleu, yes we went both nights and did catch all of the Hold Steady set. They sounded great, the band is amazing. The singer dances like an excited 5 year old... I like them a whole lot better after seeing them live - in records I just tune into the lyrics, I think, but in performance could hear the music much more.

    Hayes Carll was good, too, my mom loved his show. He did not bring a band, only a dobro player, though he had said he'd bring a 3-piece band, so something had happened to keep the drummer away; then at the end his guitar mike failed, so he just literally stomped and hollered his way through "Stomp and Holler".

    Good morning!

    Well, speaking of rose, and Rose 31, that happens to be what I chose this morning. Great minds think alike.





    Evangeline, thank you for the hugs and encouragement. I woke up feeling good about things today. You're right - I'll find something, and in the meantime it's almost summer and I have a cute boy to hang out with and things could be way, way worse. And I can't believe you only have a week to go! Time has really flown by. You must be so excited! Hell, I'm excited, and I'm not the one going to spend summer in Paris. You know I love living vicariously through you.

    Good afternoon all !.


    Mrs E, did you see the final yesterday ?. Rafa's powers of recovery are legendary but I still can't help feeling the result would have been different but for his opponent's injury. Nishikori had him outplayed and frustrated until fate intervened.


    Wolfie, how long is it until you leave for Japan ?. I'll miss you this much (and more).

    Evening all, loving all the rose & gardenia scents in here today!

    Evangeline; summer in Paris, how wonderful! Hope you'll be able to check in with regular reports.

    (((Erin))) hang in there.

    Hi, folks -

    ClaireV while I agree heartily with Kewart that you're worth every dollar you spent and then some, I *also* agree with you that you deserved your splurge just by dint of being awake. Any excuse in a storm, I say...

    And you will sleep again, I promise. Of course, shortly after you manage to get a decent night's sleep because the kiddo isn't up at all hours, you get to lose sleep because the kiddo isn't home at all hours. But you've got plenty of time between now and then - Seriously, I hope you can enjoy every minute, even the exhausting ones.

    Evangeline: Paris!!! Flash mob prior to departure! I am jealous! (okay, I just want to tag along, but you get the idea). Have a FANTASTIC time at all of your "to do"s.

    I am part of Twolf's "87 degree F East coast" misery today, although the glorious sunshine makes it worth it anyway. I am ignoring the weather and smell rich and decadent in Memoire Liquide Encens Liquide.

    Encens Liquide notes: Soft amber resin, white musk, black tea, and Hinoki Incense.
    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

    Welcome to papaya!

    Today I am wearing Histoires de Parfums Tubereuse #2 from a random decant grab - I haven't worn this one in a while and forgot how much I liked it.

    Over the weekend I discovered Figue Fruitée by Au Pays de la Fleur d'Oranger from a recent Olfactif sampler - I thought I would not like it because I'm not a big fan of fig perfumes, nor fruity perfumes, but it actually has a nice woody undertone and, especially with the beautiful warm weather, it quite hit the spot. Also over the weekend I wore Comme des Garçons Daphne.
