    Good morning all !. Nice to wake up on a Sunday safe in the knowledge that tomorrow will be a Bank Holiday . Off out and about with calorific spending on the agenda - our local farm shop has recently relocated / upsized and now boasts a coffee shop which will be the first port of call. Stopping off afterwards to check out a book fair going on at the local town hall.


    SotD is Lorenzo Villoresi Sandalo.









    30 Roses, hope today goes smoothly - wishing your daughter every success in her endeavours.

    Hello everyone. Enjoy your 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..."

    I'm home with an OH who's got a cold that he claims is flu (if it was flu he wouldn't be able to go outside for a cigarette, would he?) and a dog with a limp today, so they're both treated to some Timbuktu

    Hope everybody's having a good day today.

    Good morning all. The sun's out! It promises to be our one nice day amidst two weeks of rain, so I hope to take advantage of it. I am so tired this morning for some reason -- I think I got too much sleep last night. I'm wearing Le Parfum de Therese, which I love but always feels a little formal for me. But the elegant wafts of plummy scent are waking me up right now, deliciously.

    Mike, I hope you will enjoy both of those. I wish I were going to San Francisco! That really is a coincidence, too.

    30 Roses, what a milestone! I'm sure you'll both have mixed feelings, but these will be the happiest years of her life and she sounds like she'll make the most of them educationally, too. Do you have another at home still?

    Ineespenes, you are having a summer to be envied.

    Jon and Teardrop, both your days sound really fun, too.

    Having a lazy Sunday. Wearing Illuminum White Gardenia Petals since I'm planning to just lounge around today and maybe watch old movies. Summer is definitely coming to an end here in the Philadelphia area so not much more time to wear light white florals. Soon it will be time for Opium, Coco, vintage Shalimar, and the list goes on.

    Been wearing Annick Goutal Eau de Sud in this heat. Switched it up to Caron Acaciosa last night & was thunderstruck at how beautiful it is.

    Thanks Terry I wish you could have joined us. Managed a couple of bargains at the book festival and came away from the farm shop with a pretty indulgent haul - assorted olives with sun dried tomatoes, a huge game pie, white chocolate and lemon cheesecake with ginger biscuit base, Rocquefort and Jarlsberg cheeses, venison sausages, damson preserve, raisin and black beer wine, cherry brandy, and a tin of assorted shortbread. Invited both sets of parents round for the evening to help demolish the game pie and cheesecake.

    Cabin fever trumps a cold. Donning Balahé by Léonard, getting on my trusty 21-speed steed and heading to another concert in Cleveland's wonderful Cultural Gardens, today a piano recital in the Russian garden-to-be. A lovely day to all.

    What a delicious haul, Jon, enjoy!

    We had an awesome lunch, then repaired to one of our local pubs where they have a live band on a Sunday afternoon. Far too much to eat & drink today, but it feels good. Relaxing now in Sahara Noir.

    SOTN is vintage Fabergé Aphrodisia from the 16 oz bottle "cologne extraordinaire". If this isn't ambergris—and I know we're talkin' drugstore classic here—then it is at the very least an amazing facsimile. Better living through chemistry?

    Thanks all for your kind thoughts!

    It was a very long day but my daughter is safely installed in her dorm with 2 very nice roommates, and 3 more in the other bedroom that is in the same suite. I just chatted with via FaceTime and she seems content.
