Good morning, everyone. Gabriele Strehle Strenesse for me today, soft florals kissed by peach and a touch of almond.
Wish you all a lovely day.

Nice weekend everyone. All the best
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..."

hello all, enjoy your weekend!

Good morning and happy weekend!
I slept in big time today. It felt so good. I'm up, finally, and in Madhat Limed. Today calls for chores, but I'm also hoping to get in some pool time with a good book.
danieq, beautiful picture of you and Mr. Pants that you posted last night! You are beautiful inside and out. He is a lucky boy to have such wonderful grand-pants!

Wearing House of Matriarch Blackbird again today. I'm now a proud owner of 45ml of Blackbird. This is a great fragrance and I would really like to try more from this house. It has a headshop vibe to it but not cheap smelling.

It's Yardley English Lavender (bottle from 1970s) oversprayed with 1990s L'Occitane Verveine.
I'm wearing L'Air du Shannon, a perfume oil blend I made. It has notes of blood orange, heliotrope, and dark amber.
Happy weekend everyone!
I've trademarked the color bleu
Belated congratulations on your full retirement, kewart. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding things to do
Danieq, Mr. Pants is a doll! He's growing so fast, too!
ErinK, you looked fantastic at your brother's wedding! I confess, I'm envious of your pool-time. That's one thing from apartment living that I really miss. You're going to smell fabulous out there in Limed. I wore it yesterday and had dinner on the back patio of my favorite restaurant, and the humidity really brought out the lactones. Yum!!
I'm house twinned with ErinK, giving my first full wearing to MadHat SantL. Ryan, it's just wonderful. I'm a big fan of the cinnamon in the open. And the guiac. And the sandalwood.

When it's hot and sticky outside this stuff smells fantastic! Got together with an old friend to celebrate her 8 year old son's birthday today at GAME TIME (arcade games, sugary snacks & screaming children). Fun!

I'm getting ready to grill some salmon and uncork a Spanish rose blend of Grenache and Tempranillo. Teardrop's got me thinking pink!
Meanwhile, I'm smelling heady and naughty in By Kilian Beyond Love. Have a great night, all!
More tomorrow but I wore Wet Wood today on Lake Geneva. Glad you are both respectively enjoying SantL and Limed!
