    Good morning everyone Today I'm feeling a bit sad. The other day a person died during a motorcycle training lesson. It turns out he's an aquintance of mine. He was a dj at a placw I've been quite a bit up the years. It feels almost surreal that I just met him at the festival, and said hello as usual. That was saturday. Monday he died Anyway, sotd is Dior homme and I'm off to work. Hope you all have a great day

    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..."

    (((ineespenes))) So sorry for your loss.

    Roberto you remind me that I need to break out my favorite warm-weather patchouli soon.Won't be tomorrow, though, as there's a big meeting at work with lots of people who wouldn't appreciate patchouli. Thursday, maybe? Where are my fellow patch hags (and... haggises?)?

    Going in completely the opposite direction today with Parfum d'Empire Osmanthus Interdite. Light and ethereal, and really lovely in my opinion.

    This afternoon after work I am meeting some friends for (proper) tea and an exhibit of what promise to be extraordinary quilts at the Museum of Fine Arts. Really looking forward to it! The only drawback is that we are meeting at the museum entrance that features these huge, creepy baby head sculptures. I love babies, but these sculptures... Not so much.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday!

    Osmanthus Interdite notes: Chinese tea, osmanthus, rose, jasmine, musk.
    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

    Good morning!

    I am working through lunch today so I can take Hank-cat to the vet this afternoon for his shots. A long day called for something different than usual, and when I think different I often go for Chanel No.18. I have never been able to pick out the iris in this, so that will be my challenge today.

    (((ineespenes))) I am sorry to hear your sad news. The father of a dear friend of mine died on a motorcycle accident a few years ago. I will never look at motorcycles the same way. I know people love them, but it is so sad when that element of danger that people love results in tragedy.

    ComDiva, I googled those baby head sculptures...eeek! Hopefully I won't have nightmares about them tonight.

    ineespenes - Sorry about your friend

    Today it's about 20 degrees cooler than it was yesterday, perfect weather if you ask me (sunny a& 65.) I went for a run last night, only about 3 miles and I had to stop about 4 times because I kept cramping up. Mike, I don't know how you do it down in Miami...outside of January when it's -20 here :-)

    Wearing Slumberhouse Vikt today! (took the only picture I could find from photobucket - probably from another basenoter!)

    Good morning, good smelling people. I am in the Mure et Musc Extreme again today, mmm.

    So sorry for your friend's death, Inespees, and so glad you got to talk to him on Saturday, that was a gift indeed.

    rynegne - the way I run in the summer in Florida is to get up before the sun does....roll out of bed, put on the shoes and go, always trying to get out the door before 6 and sometimes closer to 5:30, earlier than that in the school year. It's not so hot in the early morning. I am quite acclimated to the heat, was born here, and still think people who run in the afternoon are crazy, that is just asking for heat stroke. Our races, marathons and things are all in the winter, or at night - my coworker just did a night run thing last week.

    Today I'm wearing the vintage Estee Super that arrived this morning (which is old enough to have been in a pressurised atomiser, so it's got all fo the goodies that are now banned), but with overtones of Spanish Leather, which arrived a little bit later this morning

    And my mum's Christmas present has just arrived, somewhat earlier than needed. I've bought her a bottle of Miss Dior parfum which is still sealed in its cellophane with the original price labels from the department store it was originally purchased from. I REALLY want to open it to have a sniff and check it's OK, but that would break the cellophane. Picture me frustrated.

    Hope everybody's having the best day they can, in their circumstances. Sorry to hear about your friend Inespees.

    I got a tiny little rash today when I sprayed this on the crook of my elbows...sometimes this happens with cinnamon scents. Next time I might need to dilute this in moisturizer and then put it on, rather than spraying directly on skin. But I smell good!

    Good afternoon all !.

    (((Ine))), I'm so sorry to hear of such an awful tragedy.

    Ryan, I'll do you a swap if you like . Your weather today sounds like heaven on earth compared to the misery here. Mike, has that damned aircon been fixed yet ?.


    Another iris day today. Heeley Iris de Nuit.









    (((Erin))), thank you for your confidence in my abilities as a host - I think I just about scraped through.
    BTW, talking of creepy babies, check out the one in the following clip . We visited this exhibition when it was in Christchurch NZ and found it quite weird and disconcerting despite the undoubted talent on show.

    Rash went away quickly, I put some witch hazel & aloe vera gel on it. The scent, is exploding in the heat today. Very Sahara-ish.

    Thanks for asking - I had a fantastic date last night, dinner was fantastic & he has the most adorable dog that I got along with. Looking forward to getting together again soon.

    Ineespenes, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Good morning to all. I am wearing White Linen. No scent seemed right today, but this turned out to be an inoffensive choice.

    Rynegne, I must be odd because I will always prefer yesterday's 90 degrees over today's 64 degrees. I guess the cool weather is good for all of the sporty people, though. And my daughter will enjoy tennis camp more today.
