    Hi all,

    ClaireV I hope Mila is being more co-operative today. I remember spending many afternoons at a friends place baby-sitting her twins. I’d bring her dinner, do a load of washing while she napped. Do you have someone who can take over and give you a break?

    Jujy and ErinK enjoy your respective dates ladies, coffee or otherwise .

    I'm out to dinner with a dear friend this evening. We get together when he’s in town to eat, swear at food and commiserate on our sad state of affairs. It's always a cathartic and enjoyable evening as we understand each others crazy.

    Grey Vetiver today and sampling L’Heures Folle this evening.

    Hi Everyone! In Parure EDT today, from a decant.

    Wow, thanks to all the lovely mamas and aunties (Xscent!) who chimed in to offer me words of comfort yesterday and today - ComDiva, Dora, Kewart, and Xscent, you are lovely women, all of you. You gave me both comfort and perspective, Sleep deprivation is hard, but blind buying perfume in the middle of the night is a consolation - bad for the wallet but oddly comforting to the soul
    Mila was awake again for 2 and a half hours last night, and I will admit I was close to tears at one point. But then I went online and put myself in for 5mls of a Vol de Nuit extrait split, yeah, so....I felt better.

    Mike - You must have been logged into my emotional brainwaves from across the ocean when you reached for the Vol de Nuit parfum Do you have that beautiful propeller bottle? What is is doing languishing and unloved at the back of the closet so that your fingers can't reach it??? I agree with you that it's a wistful scent. I would go so far as "solitary" and "melancholic", but in a nice way, of course. It is the Guerlain that is the most ME. The parfum is amazing and lasted for more than 12 hours on me.

    Evangeline - so excited for you! I hope you check in on us while you are in France. Will you be doing any perfume hunting while there? My family and I are headed to the Loire Valley for our summer holidays in late June, somewhere between Tours and Orleans, so maybe we will bump into each other!

    Cestrum - I laughed at the idea of you blowing out the room with AP - I bet you smelled glorious, and maybe your colleague was just telling it like it is (something smelled good) rather than commenting negatively on your sillage. How is AP, by the way? Is it herbal-resinous amber like Ambre Sultan or powdery-vanilic like Ambre 114? I love ambers, and this one is always recommended.

    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..."

    Thank you, and likewise - I'm excited for you, too! Wouldn't *that* be something? Maybe we'll recognize each other by our sotd!

    Thanks cestrum, thanks *dora*! I'll have a computer and the internet, all the mod cons, but I'm really looking forward to unplugging a bit ...though I might check in occasionally just to say "bonjour" ...or perhaps "à la vôtre!" if the timing's right ...and it's always wine o'clock somewhere!

    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

    Sarrasins, which I like the opening of...but the dry down is all poop this time. Literally, poop. Husband sniffed it, said it smelled like burnt rubber and poop. Gross. Another Lutens that seemed promising..then goes all strange and funky. So far, the worst dry down of any Lutens, it's right up there with Miel(ferret) de Bois. Another Lutens where I smell of nasty, rodent funk or poop...is there a feral cat and it sprayed on me? I didn't notice the poop before with this scent..but it's all poop. No offense to anyone..I just don't care for several from this line.

    Thanks for your wishes for the bon voyage, I was THIS close choosing ju's Cabochard as my SotD today but went with Madame Rochas instead, which I believe is a grandma to an Amouage or two. :-)

    JR, I wanted to remark last week but got mentally tangled up in something else, so here goes: your KL Photo is great, I vividly remember being with someone who wore it to Dimitry Khvorostovsky's gala at Metropolitan Opera back in 1995, great fragrance.

    kalli, I am with you on that particular SL, if it is of any consolation.

    Have a great Tuesday, family!

    LOL kalli, you're cracking me up! I'm not too big on super animalic fragrances either...here's to you Leather Oud...I've never scrubbed so frantically in my life.

    Much cooler today, so I decided to go with Slumberhouse Vikt Extrait...one of my absolute favorites. Credit to ziffy for the photo I believe, I found it on Google (nice pic - not many out there of Vikt.)

    Hi, friends -

    Hope all the dates go wonderfully, sound night's sleep occur and perpetual wine o'clock (and just being) relaxes everyone on vacation.

    Ipp, you're wearing one of my favorite "wish list" scents today. Mmmmmm, you smell wonderful. Come sit next to me, will you?

    Sharing the house with Dora as my SOTE in Chanel 31 Rue Camobon. Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. I feel like Spring incarnate.

    31 Rue Cambon notes include: 31, Bergamot, black pepper, patchouli, cistus labdanum and iris.
    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

    Joining the Chanel ladies today with Bois des Iles!!! Cool weather blew in last night, and there were a few snow flakes blowing around this morning, but all will calm by the time I get off work. I certainly hope so, as it would be rather odd for a May league tennis match to be snowed out!!

    Good afternoon all !. Claire, hope the little one is giving you some respite today. Having no offspring, I'm afraid I can't offer parental sympathy as a kindred spirit but can still encourage nocturnal fragrant indulgence as a therapy of sorts.

    Mrs E, will Roland Garros be on your itinerary or is that a silly question ?

    I'm chiming in with "Bon voyage" to Twolf -- Japan sounds fabulous!

    And Evangeline, France!! I know you will have a great time! Will you come back with a Rosine?

    ((ClaireV)) I well recall those early months. My daughter would not nap (I didn't know it was even possible for babies not to nap) and I was totally worn out. The phase passes, but it's tough to go through at the time.

    Today it's a bit cooler, a relief from the heat and humidity of the past few days. It's not that it was so terrible here, but we just aren't acclimated to it yet.

    I'm wearing Diabolo Rose.
