    AbdesSalaam Attar
    Balsamo della Mecca - Only a few spritzes, but I had to give it a wear...even though it's quite muggy today. Spicy and dusty with balsamic woody undertones. I'll have to give this one a stronger wear soon when it's not so muggy and my allergies aren't killing me...but I couldn't resist giving this an initial sniff, from what I can tell I like it a lot.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    Good morning!

    jujy, I am so happy to hear your son is in a good place now. I pray that he will flourish in this new environment.

    ComDiva, your folk dance camp week sounds awesome!! You've probably seen me say before that I love contra dancing. It's not something I get to do a lot but it's SO much fun. I am sure you were around many wonderful people there, too.

    Mike, that scent you were wearing last night sounds amazing... I'm sure you smelled sexy as all get out. My friend Ben laughs at me at the pool because when he gets there and takes off his t-shirt I always want to inhale it. There is something about the smell of a little sweat on a guy that is just so sexy.

    I'm in the dc'ed Gap Close today, another that smells SO good in the heat.

    Jujy, very optimistic after reading your update - a little stability in a caring environment could be just the thing.

    Jujy, I hope your family has found a long-term situation which keeps everyone as happy as Mike living in a house built of sandalwood.

    I want to sample the Hedonist and Cuir Cannage samples sitting here, but sticky summer weather doesn't facilitate heavy honey or leather. However, today is a good, quiet, indoor day for concentrating on a wrist, so … Hedonist it is! The opening sets up a sweetest-tolerance gauntlet, which grows less abusive over the course of several minutes. Just catching whiff of sugared peach over the course of the day should be pleasant, but I'm filing away the sample for winter before I opine more than to say this is a special one, it is.

    Good morning, good smelling people. Absolu de Vanille from the Maison Vanille.

    No car yet but after the test-driving have decided to try to get a Honda Accord Sport model with 6 speed manual transmission. It is fun enough for driving and (most important) reliable and not fuel hog, but comfortable enough for the kids too. Now it is just about the dollars, negotiating prices and finding the best deal.

    Jujy, I am happy that your son has a good situation, and hope he is OK.

    Seconding (actually just adding my voice to the many) in support and encouragement for continued good results for jujy and family. (Quarry, your "happy as Mike living in a house built of sandalwood" comment is PERFECT! rynegne thanks for quoting it so I didn't miss!

    Thanks to everyone for the "welcome backs," and commiserating over folk dancing of all types, and to Twolf for the "tail and sympathy." ;-)

    SOTD is Andy Tauer L'Air du desert marocain. I just love this stuff. (And AdP Mirto, Jon! That's now on my wish list...)

    Terrific Tuesday to one and all.

    [b]L'Air du desert marocain notes: Coriander, petitgrain (bitter orange), lemon, bergamot, jasmin, cistus, bourbon, geranium, cedarwood, vetiver, vanille, patchouli and ambergris.

    Hello all! Just popping in -- my daughter is graduating from h.s. tonight and it's been crazy busy.

    After the ceremony the kids go to the local Parks and Rec until 4 a.m. for an alcohol-free night of fun. Which means I get to go pick her up from school, where the buses take them back, at 4:15 a.m., since she has not taken her road test yet for her license.

    I was out at Hallmark earlier getting graduation stuff and tested 5 Olivina 8ml roll-on fragrances at the counter. Honeysuckle, Buttercup, Daisy, Violet, and Gardenia. Now I have 5 meh scents on my arm, and of course, the worst of them-- a synthetic gardenia-- is the most tenacious.

    Dear friends, all your kind words and encouragement mean so much to me. Son is well-settled in. He's both tired and cranky, but understands the aftermath of a manic episode can be a crash, as was explained by his psy-doc this morning. He has a ways to go just to get back to baseline. His new home is a very calm place, and he likes his housemates.

    SOTD, continuing in Caron Acaciosa extrait. Sometimes I counteract muggy weather with cool green scent, but today I'm meeting it head on with Acaciosa's slightly sweaty florals.
