    Rynegne, yay, San Francisco sounds like it was fun. We'll be in there this summer for a little while. Now, I have to admit, over numerous visits and three years living in the Bay Area, I've never had a good meal in a North Beach Italian restaurant, so if you remember the name of yours, please let me know.

    Xscent, hah, yeah, the aliens will need to be consulted. Sadly my budget is blown, so being a rational, reasonable person I know I cannot buy Une Fleur de Cassie for quite some time.

    Let's see how long that lasts.

    I have to admit that I do worry a little about a chandelier right over the tub. Maybe if it's not turned on while bathing?

    By the way, I know a family who built a house so magnificent that each of the bays of their garage has a crystal chandelier. So a chandelier in an actual room -- inside -- seems very sober and practical, in comparison.

    I wore Mimosa Pour Moi for my morning errands, and I am taking advantage of cool weather now to enjoy Santal Noble out of season.

    Oh, but what a way to go. It would be legen- (wait for it) -dary.

    “You know how she died, don't you?”

    “Oh, yes, the chandelier fell in the tub. Beautiful corpse, I hear.”

    “Yes, they say she was a bit of a dancer.”

    “Is it true she was buried wearing a bespoke tuxedo?”

    “That's what some say her ghost is seen wearing.”

    Capo's and do make reservations. It was very busy! Cool to see a little Italian, Chicago style place in the heart of SF.

    Sweet, thanks. I checked it out and the menu looks a little like Rosebud. That sounds great.

    Yes, and with a champagne flute in hand.

    But maybe when she's 90.

    Oh, no, I missed wishing our beloved Mrs. Q. happy birthday on the actual day!

    Sorry sorry sorry - But please know, Quarry dear, that my mistake is actually your gain... You hereby get to extend your celebration! And I am going to wear Bois des Isles in your honor for the rest of the work week.

    Quarry and Mocha you guys had be in fits of laughter. Yes that does sound like me. Likely ended up in the tub dressed my tux because I was was swinging from the chandelier after one to many champagnes after the opera. Q you are awesome, no other word befits your talents and abilities.

    Mocha we are not rational beings as much as we would like to think so. I'll look out for your next alien experience on the 'What I bought today' thread.

    ComDiva I know what you are doing with that Bois des Îles and fully support such actions.

    Post hump day and I’m in Bel Respiro this morning after a quick run.

    Looks like a Chanel mini-synch today! I'm in also in no5 ... the EDP. I'm another who came to no5 late after years of trying. Unlike Claire, I've found the EDP to be "my" no5.

    RE bathroom chandelier: oh hellz yes! I would put a chandelier in every room of my house, if I could ... I pinned a simply gorgeous laundry room complete with small chandelier on Pinterest, I look at it often and will probably re-do my laundry room in a similar way. Some day.

    rynegene, your trip sounds really great! Glad you had a good time ...

    hugs to all ...

    Rynegne - welcome back & thanks for the recap. Sounds like it was a quick trip but also jammed packed full of stuff. I'll be in San Fran for two weekends myself, so I hope to tackle it at a more leisurely pace.
    Xscent - when can I come over & take a bath at your place sweetie? How does Sunday afternoon sound? Hmmm??
    cello - you've noticed, eh? Yeah, it just seems like lately I'm reaching for bottles and well-I'll-be-darned, it's almost all gone. I admit that there is something very satisfying and redeeming about 'reducing' my wardrobe one bottle at a time. If only I wouldn't replace them so quickly. Well at least the last acquisitions have only been decants. That's not so bad, right?
    ErinK - where are you girl!? WE MISS YOU!
    Mocha - I read about the cool weather up in your parts last night online. How strange. I cannot imagine my heavy sweet fragrances in the hot summer we're having. I even thought wearing my Shalimar EdC this morning was risky but it was fine, that stuff is so light and easy-breezy


    Had dinner after work with a great friend @ this fantastic Argentinian restaurant right around the corner from my apartment. The burrata cheese salad was so fresh I had to resist the urge to lick the plate. Same for the corvina.

    It felt easy to reach for the 'brother' scent to my SOTD this morning:

    Habit Rouge (vintage Eau de Cologne) + (vintage Deodorant) by Guerlain

    Thank you for the kind thoughts and hugs (((ExtremeK, Mocha, Xscent, Jon and Quarry!))) I am feeling better today, and will probably be back at the usual grind tomorrow. I probably sound insane rescuing an animal widely deemed a pest, but the poor things have been unfairly maligned for decades due to misinformation and mistaken identity, so that makes me especially intent on saving the little beast... poor substitute that I am for the real bird mommy. Sadly, the only rehabbers who were enlightened enough/aware of current scientific studies and were willing to take him were located too far away, in S. Orange County. Apparently, Mozart had a starling as a pet...

    Xscent, a chandelier over the tub sounds amazing! And shades, I like the sound of the laundry room chandelier too!

    Rynegne, thanks for the trip report! Sounds like a great time. The last time we were in SF, we wound up in the Tenderloin at night due to similar circumstances with the restaurant of choice and I was not overly pleased to be there either at that late hour.

    mike, mmmmm... burrata.... and I really like your philosophy on using bottles and thinning the collection... I will have to remind myself of that more often!

    Anyway… SOTD was two big sprays of Caleche…so happy to be able to smell despite the stuffiness.
