    Thumbs up SOTD, Sunday 10.August.2014


    Good Morning everyone. Have all a Fantastic 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..."

    Good morning all !. Wind and rain intensifying outside - we are supposedly getting the tail end of Hurricane Bertha today so it looks as though we will be confined to barracks.

    Mrs Q, looking forward to hearing about your meet-up with Convertible Waving Lady .

    Hi all,

    We bore the brunt of hurricane Bertha's tail end this morning, just after l got to work. Lots of torrential rain, thunder & high winds, all quite exciting, really. lt's now warm & sunny, but the strong gusts of wind continue. l wore Acqua di Gioia.

    Also sorry to hear of TwoRoads' passing. RIP.

    And we've got it now, up in Yorkshire. All the lights are on and the rain is hammering down- as long as it doesn't interrupt coverage of the Challenge Cup semi final I'll be happy I really feel for anybody who has no choice but to be outside today.

    In vintage Miss Dior.

    My heart is heavy thinking of TwoRoads today ... I wish I had some vintage Tabarome or Derby to wear, as we had discussed those several times. But I don't, so It will be Jaipur Homme today, another fragrance he loved and wore a lot.

    hugs to all, my BN friends ...

    Good afternoon and best to all. It's a beautiful day again, though I'm running hither and yon. I'm wearing Sous le Toit de Paris by Atelier Cologne, which is lovely.

    My goal for the day is to (later) be able to sit down and finish Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. It had been on the shelf for months, nay years, when on impulse I packed it in my suitcase and brought it on our trip. It turns out to be a great book, of course, but now that I'm back I have been trying desperately to find time for it. My friends, today shall be that day, I hope.

    Puma - I love the way Oscar smells, my fathers mom used to wear it all of the time, especially the Body Powder. I remember being a kid, tiptoeing into her room, and sneaking a smell of it. Nice memories.
    Jon - I didn't know that TwoRoads died - wow how sad. What a kind man he was to me, many times via PM. I will always remember he introduced me to vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme so of course I always think of him when I smell that scent. I will say a prayer now for his loved ones
    Mocha - 'Cloud Atlas' is a joy to read. I struggled when I first read it also, because that 1st chapter (and the Olde-English that it's written in and the way it's sliced in two, mid-sentence) was so challenging. But once I got the rhythm of the book it revealed so many delights. Mitchell is such a gifted writer. Every time I read his work I just stop and re-read certain sentences several times, because they're so beautiful. I hope you get your reading time today. I'm in the middle of the Michael Cunningham novel 'The Snow Queen', it's heartbreaking and very witty also.


    This morning I drained the last of my sample (thanks 30Roses) of:

    Fresh Mint Leaf by Jo Malone



    Now, this afternoon, again I'm testing S02E03, the Chandler Burr 'mystery' scent. Just one spray and really this stuff gives me a bit of a headache when it's been on my skin for a while. It's taking all of my patience to wear, analyze, critique this. It's something I would never wear otherwise. Which, I guess, is the point Burr is trying to make. lol


    I woke up, went to the gym & then had brunch with a new friend (Mexican breakfast - I'm still full...it was so heavy!). Came home, napped & now I'm just sitting here messin' around on BN & streaming some music on the 'net. I can't stop listening to this song, from The Shins from the 'Wish I Was Here' soundtrack. A very Summer 2014 track, it just makes me smile:



    Later on, I might go out, if so I'll probably wear Limed by Madhat. It's HOT outside!
