    Good morning, fragrant friends!

    I got to see Jonny Lang live at a small club in Vienna last night. It was a fascinating and intimate experience. Someone was quicker than I was in uploading a Jonny blues fave to youtube showing Jonny having multiple guitar @ rgasms.

    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.

    Good morning dearies!

    Today's my Friday - I am leaving for KY after work today. I would give anything for traffic to cooperate for me to be in Asheville (AKA food heaven) by dinner time, but I don't think there's any way. Maybe I can find a good spot open late for takeout.

    I'm in Givenchy L'Interdit, vintage EDP and EDT.




    Thank you all for the love potion wishes yesterday! I think it may have worked. He texted last night, told me it was good to see me, and told me I looked beautiful. Swoon. This one's a complete non-starter - I'm moving away anyway, but what can I say...crushes are fun.

    thediamondsea, your Nicole ad made me smile last night! Gorgeous, baby!

    keeping it classy today in

    Boucheron feminine EDP

    The Husband came in after I had sprayed this and said, verbatim "the room smells pretty."

    It's kind of overapplied, I'm counting on it to settle in.

    If it's any consolation you have a kindred spirit

    I leave for work around 0545 and the local council persist with their pig-headed refusal to put the bloody street lights on. I have to rely on the torch in my phone to reach the safety of the main road without going arse over tit.

    Not at all surprised that your beauty + Samsara did the trick, Erin! My guess is it was mostly your lovely self, but if that's not enough, Samsara certainly ought to be! If not, there's something wrong with him.

    That sounds fun, Larimar! Haven't heard Jonny in a while but I always liked his voice. He sounded like a world weary 50 year old man even as a teenager. Just like a great bluesman should!

    Lol, what an image, Jon! Do tread carefully on these winter mornings! Don't want you to break your arse.

    Speaking of blues, I'm in L'Heure Bleue EDP. Nothing to be blue about when wearing this pretty thing, though. Have a good day, all!

    Hi all,

    I’m wearing Jo Malone Oud & Bergamot. I just sprayed it on and the two titular notes combine perfectly in the opening. I’ll be very busy today preparing for the Thanksgiving feast next week.

    Have a good day.

    My Zoologist Dragonfly sample leaked. I got enough out of it to get a decent whiff. A very serene fragrance. Very lovely. Will need to get another sample to satisfy my craving for more. I smell all the notes except lemon, musk, and clover. I don't remember what clover smells like.

    It's gray and pouring rain outside, so I am in the warm coziness of Un Bois Vanille (which autocorrect keeps changing to IN Bois Vanille, which would be a different experience, I think.)

    Happy Hump Day to all!

    Good afternoon, everyone! I'm still under the weather(ish), sleeping far more than I usually do and battling the damn headache that won't quite bugger off.

    ErinK--congratulations on working your magic on the fella in question. Even the non-starters can turn out to be special--those bittersweet last flings before you leave town have their own magic.

    I imagine I'm stuck inside for the next couple of days, between the way I'm feeling and the nasty weather we have on the horizon; it's supposed to start raining in a couple of hours, and keep it up for the next day or so. I have plenty of reading for when I'm awake, but I'm so tired that I'm not sure how much I'll even get done. I can't even tell if I'm making any sense, so I'm gonna stop writing for the moment. Getting to the perfume tray seems like more than I can manage right now, so I dug into my little stash of samples in my nightstand drawer and found Santal Blush, which is pitched low enough that it won't provoke the low-grade migraine I have simmering around the edges. Later tonight, it will probably be time for more of my migraine companion, White Patchouli. All this should improve rapidly after Friday's procedure. I'm ready for it right now.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    After more than a year of no flowers, my calamansi tree is once again in bloom in our living room; the blossoms smell just like orange blossoms-- wonderful!
    I'm wearing Jo Malone Orange Blossom also.

    All this talk of vintage Samsara has got me wanting to wear it again.
    I have a teensy bit left in a bottle a very kind Basenoter sent me and I
    am saving it for the Christmas party season.
    I have been wearing Lolita Lempicka again today, until a sales assistant in
    Debenhams almost accosted me with a bottle of J'Adore and virtually insisted on spraying some over me!
