    Hello everyone

    ((Cestrum)) you make such a sweet mama bird. Hope you feel better soon. I do need a calming influence or at least someone to catch me when I fall from exhaustion but in the absence of such a person I’ve booked my massage therapist for a house call this evening. I'm also glad to know I’m not the only one whom feels clothing at home is optional The day the last tradesman leaves my place I’m going to run around my place nekkid.

    Good advice Mike it was very peaceful in the BdÎ scented tent. I need to get your take on the skank factor on Bel Ami (copper cap). After reading the reviews I’m trying to figure out if we taking clean sweat, Eau de Knickers or serious post work out funk.

    Mocha you made my day. I adore Une Fleur de Cassie and would be having a word with those perfume aliens of yours about a flacon.

    Southerngardens I love that Gruau illustration on your avatar. It makes me want to snatch that towel and give that behind towel whip.

    ExK I read that escentual.com has a sale on. I did a quick search and saw they stock Songes EdP and ship internationally. Buy Buy Quick! Kitchen is done I might do some tweaking later but everything is in and working, I'll snap some pics soon. As for bathrooms four of the five are 3/4 done. My swish new bathtub has been delivered, made it unscathed up three floors and currently sitting in my dressing room awaiting installation. I'm liking the look of the tub under a chandelier, would a chandelier in the bathroom be OTT?

    Finalising holiday plans which has been hijacked somewhat by business. Ah well, it means I’ll be away a bit longer than planned which is not necessarily a bad thing. Bottega Veneta for today.

    Hello everyone! Scent of the day is Enlevement Au Serail by MDCI Parfums - part of the sample set I ordered from them.

    But then I had to take over from my babysitter for an hour while she sat an exam at university so I took the baby off for a sniffing session at the local perfume store, where I spritzed on some Dior Homme Intense (I spray this on every time I am in a bricks and mortar store - I guess I should buy the stuff since I love it so much) and some La Perla on the other hand (God, this is really good....who mentioned La Perla here recently? Was it Evangeline perhaps?)

    I bought three refill atomizers of 20ml each of Chanel No 5 EDT because I sprayed some on in the airport on the way home from Slovenia on Sunday and something just clicked for me after years of intermittent trying - suddenly I saw some similarities with my beloved Bois des Iles, especially in the aldehydes and the sandalwood in the drydown, and I think I might actually be getting to like this......wow. (Good thing too, since I have a 14ml bottle of vintage pure parfum on the way to me, for the sake of reference rather than love....but it may be that I actually fall for this. Don't know yet. I will give No. 5 a fair shot this time though.)

    Hi everybody -

    Lightning post for now... I'm in Paloma Picasso by Paloma Picasso. Particularly enjoying the rose/coriander interplay on my skin.

    Paloma Picasso notes: Bergamot, neroli, jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, coriander, patchouli, vetiver, amber.

    Wonderous Wednesday to all (hump day hump day hump day)!

    Good morning, it RAINED here last night. I love summer rain but it dumped all at once and flooded the streets, which would be OK except I had to drive through it, which is terrifying. Found the highest way home and car made it fine. Also a drive to the airport to pick up the oldest daughter, who does not have a cell phone since hers was stolen. but they don't let you wait and find your passenger due to security so we had to send another daughter to find her as we looped around, it was a kind of messy night. Also the police managed to shoot a pot dealer, in what was apparently a botched arrest attempt a couple blocks away from the kids' babysitter. Woke with headache, and streets still too wet to run on, headache mostly beat down with imitrex shot so that isn't bad now.

    ah, but the sun rises, beautiful over what looks like a calm city from here, and I am wearing just a smidge of Narcotic Venus, pretty floral, and I have all 4 of my daughters home for the summer now, that will be nice and it may be the last time!

    Good morning all.

    Lovely to read everyone's shenanigans! Xscent you should certainly have a full on chandelier in the bathroom, of course!

    Claire, I recently converted to No 5 after having sworn I hated it for years. However, each concentration is very different. I just bought a vintage (not certain how vintage) EDT whose opening smells like traditional No 5 but later it's chock full of Oakmoss. I was shocked about that! I want a modern EDT now to compare. I predict you'll ultimately fall in love and become addicted. Have you tried Guerlain Liu? It's got some similarities but I think it's a bit softer overall. Another winner in my book. I've been plotting how to purchase a full bottle.

    Mike, those Shalimar EdCs smell amazing, best of luck hunting your replacement.

    Robin, sounds like a doozy of a day. Hope you don't float away!

    I'm in Lyric Woman this morning, spent the night in Memoir and thought Lyric would be a good shift. Remembering why I loved this so very much last year when I bought it. I've been so caught up with other things, mainly classics, that I'd neglected this one.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Claire and Danie the vintage BdÎ and No.5 are very similar to my nose and skankier too.

    Robin how wonderful to have all your girls together. Take care, migraines can be so draining.

    ComDiva you smell amazing, Paloma Picasso is all sorts of fabulous. It's such a diva of a fragrance.

    Vintage No.5 EdC and parfum tonight. Staying extra night in London is causing all sorts of dramas when your hotel is completely booked out on the night you need. Putting it in the too hard basket for now.

    Hey all! Hope you had a great holiday weekend!!!

    I'm a little tired this morning as I'm still adjusting back to Central time from Pacific...testing one of my new scents from MadHat this morning.

    Our trip to San Francisco was absolutely amazing. Not much in the way of perfume shopping was done aside from a sniffing trip to Barney's...but we did a ton of exploring.

    Day 1 was ok...we were both tired from traveling. Dinner was at Farmer Brown, which is on the border of Tenderloin and my girlfriend didn't really feel safe and was a little upset with the situation. We did end up getting out to Tonga Room later in the evening which was great (an awesome Tiki Bar.)

    Day 2 was Fisherman's Warf and Ghirardelli Square which were both super touristy...so we decided to pave our own path. We knocked both out within about an hour and a half and ended up walking through the Marina District and eventually making our way up to Crissy Marsh for sunset. Tupelo was our bar of choice later in the evening. Great live music and met some cool people. Ended up meeting the executive chef of a Chicago restaurant in a bar next to Tupelo who told us to come in the following day for dinner.

    Day 3 was Union Square in the afternoon after deciding not to pay $125/ticket at the Giants game...I was a little bummed but the ticket prices were extremely high due to the holiday. Barney's was really cool. Did a lot of sniffing, but no buying. Dinner was at this Italian place in N. Beach which we were suggested to visit after meeting the executive chef the night before. The entire meal and drinks were almost completely comped and it was absolutely delicious...we were treated like king and queen. Just awesome. Ended the trip at the Top of the Mark, had the place pretty much to ourselves and it was the perfect end to our SF trip...sights from there were amazing at night.

    Day 4...got back super late and rushing this quick trip update. So sorry for the sloppiness! Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday, I'm off to check my 300 unread emails :0

    Danieq, yes, the concentrations are really different! I have been innocently spraying on the EDP for years now, believing that the EDP is always the superior version, and oh how I hated it, could not understand how anyone could wear it....but now, the EDT? Wow....I think it is a yes from me. Can't wait to smell my vintage parfum! As for Liu, I do have a sample of it somewhere - I must dig it out for a try tomorrow, thanks for the prompt! The bottle looks cool, too.

    Thank you very much for adding so much cheer to my birthday, dearhearts.
    Mwah from Moi!


    Roberto, I've been meaning to thank you for the information about Racine. It had not been offered at Lucky Scent for a long time, so I figured it was dc’ed. Now you're saying it's reformulated or the current batch isn't as good? Sad. A couple years ago I had gotten samples for my many cousins with the last name of Racine. A certain fondness for my relatives became associated with that distinguished vetiver.

    Jujy, happy to hear things are trending better all around.

    (((Cello))) May you only be surrounded by people as pleasant as yourself.

    (((Robin))) Upward, ever onward!

    (((Cestrum))) It's not fun feeling overwhelmed. Find time for yourself amidst the haste.

    Easyfish x 6,000 =

    Xscent: Chandelier over the tub makes supreme sense. You're lying back anyway. Where better to have an interesting ceiling-scape.

    And now for something completely different … Tuesday:
    I played life-size Tetris, fitting all of DD's apartment furniture and cookware and knickknacks into the western classroom where we already have tons of other stuff. She's moving out of her apartment, awaiting a condo opportunity. It's going to be weird around here for a while.

    And now for something completely different … Wednesday:
    Painting yellow parking lines. Just waiting for the asphalt to dry before I try this new adventure, unless laziness undermines my momentum.

    Having a good nuzzle of Bois des Iles. Quite a bit of Chanel banter here I see.
