    Continuing theme week with Lorenzo Villoresi's Iperborea. First time trying this. Problem is I can barely smell it - just vague florals and a bit powdery.

    (((((Robin))))) I'm so sorry about your Loki. It just hurts so bad to lose them. I'll never forget when my parents had to put ours down, this is going back better than 25 years and the thought of it still brings tears to my eyes.

    Afternoon Folks, and BIG HUG again for Robin

    I'm taking a break from Theme Week too, and instead I'm wearing my latest purchase Le Parfum de Therese from FM. This has been quite the 180 for me, what started off as an oppressive melon has gently morphed into something so much more...very glad to have rediscovered this

    La Flaneuse, it took me a while to warm up to LPDT but I love it now too. Wish they made a body butter in that scent.

    Today I am in Lonesome Rider.

    Condolences to Robin. I've been there too; twice, with my kitties. The last one left my heart permanently broken as the vet who did the deed was rude and insensitive. Your vet sounds amazing. You did it all just right; couldn't have been a more perfect send off.

    On theme in a sample of 4160 Tuesdays Raw Silk and Red Roses. Have decided to purchase this one to replace my dwindling Une Rose. The rose note is very similar but I like this drydown even more than Une Rose. If I time it right, I'll also be able to stretch out my pre-EL UR, with some help from this little beauty.

    Have a good day all!

    Thank you so much for all the good wishes. It was hard but I am glad we did this, and @PerfumedLady, yes I am so grateful we have a hospice vet in the area, they were able to give him hotshot painkillers for his last days, and they come out to the house, we don't have to take him anywhere and they have "undertakers" who are also very professional, gentle and considerate. A rude vet when you are already hurting sounds like a nightmare.

    Samsara for today, yummy yummy.

    Impact Pour un Homme by Caron



    The original Caron Pour un Homme is more of a spray-before-bed scent for me, but this Parfum version is much more office friendly and yet still smells snuggly and comforting. Oh and today it wasn't hot and humid when I walked outside - it was nice and cool. Yay, fall is coming...well...allegedly.
