Thank you, primrose and gandhajala!
I'm going to hit the sack finally-- it's 2 a.m. here and I was too wired to sleep earlier-- I had an hour's drive to take the caregiver home so didn't even get home until 11.
Tomorrow will have its own set of death-related jobs, including phoning Italy to tell my mother's SIL of her passing. I will need all my energy.
((30 Roses)) My thoughts are with you and your family. Be gentle with yourself.

It's finally here

I'm so sorry for your loss 30Roses I'm glad she passed away peacefully, at least. Sotd for today is Vetiver oriental. Hope all is well, with the redt of you.
Hello all. Heeley Nuit de Iris
Oh, 30 Roses, you have my deepest sympathy and absolute awe at how wonderful you were at taking care of her at the end. She was so very lucky to have you as a daughter, and I am glad her passing was easy. It is nice that she got to see your daughter grow before she got too far into the dementia, too.
Mure Et Musc today.

I love this stuff. Sort of a preview of what later would become Mon Precieux Nectar. Almond, aromatic herbs and a light touch of musk.
30 Roses - I do not know what to say, except this: Be good to yourself today. ((lots of hugs))
Quarry - I agree with you, cestrum_nocturnum is such a sweetie and deserves all of the accolades. She and I are constantly cracking each other up. Let's clone her!
Rynegne - Aoud Cuir d'Arabie was a wild-ride yesterday...and not quite as irritatingly tenacious as Black Aoud which was a nice surprise...but for a couple minutes when you spray it on it smells JUST like a barn.

30 Roses, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I know it was a long, difficult road but you are right about passing in her sleep - it is what we all hope for. Still, I know it is hard now. Please know we are all thinking about you. ((((30R))))
TDC de Bachmakov today.
Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese today. Gosh, I love this one more and more each time I wear it. Mike, you're going to enjoy this one (saw you were getting a split.) To me, this is at the pinnacle of smokey incense fragrances. I've never tried Black Oud (I did try dark oud - not a fan), but C d'A sounds interesting for sure. I love when oud goes into that deep dark-wet-fungal woody territory.
30 Roses, my deepest condolences. Keeping you and yours in mind today.
Thank you, everyone!
Today I have to contact everyone and tell them the news.
I just called my dad's sister in Italy, who is in her 90s and speaks no English. It was awkward but Google translate helped. Italian was my mother tongue, as my parents had just immigrated a couple of years before my brother and I were born and spoke little English, but I basically stopped speaking it at home when I started school. So, while I understand what I hear, when I try to speak Italian I produce a jumble of actual Italian, plus the 2 northern Italian dialects my family members spoke, plus French from high school, plus the Bantu language I learned in Africa.
I haven't worn much perfume lately due to not wanting to form sad associations, but I am now going to start again. SotD is Empressa from a Penhaligon's sample.
(((30 Roses))), so sorry to hear the news about your mom. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Chopard Casmir today.
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..."

(((30 Roses))) my deepest condolences - she was blessed to have you as a daughter.
30 Roses, so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts today.

I'm chugging away at my notifications. Have to dig up her elderly cousin's address in Australia now.
When Mom and Dad first applied to emigrate from Italy back in 1950, it was Australia they wanted to go to. Dad was rejected; he thought it was due to his history of polio and his pronounced limp. So I ended up being born in America instead.
Which is good, for a perfume lover.
My thoughts and prayers are with you 30 Roses. ♥
