    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, everyone!

    I have a 7:30 doctor's appointment today (routine visit to the pain specialist) so I'm up and enjoying the cool(ish) air outside at the moment with the kitty. She's acting all tweaked out because one of neighbor cats is down in the parking area behind our place, taunting her; there's no way to explain that nobodys going to get into her house and eat her food . . . .
    I guess it's time to at least pretend that it's autumn, so I switched out my summer perfumes and got out a pretty good autumn selection that I need to whittle down a little before I finally settle on it. For now, I'm wearing some In Black, which has enough of a suggestion of leather to feel autumnal, but isn't so brooding that it seems out of season. We'll see how it does when things warm up a tad--I think it'll be fine, but I don't want to gas out anyone in the close quarters of the doc's office. I hope everyone's day is going well so far--

    I'm In Black as well thediamondsea. This recently acquired blind buy is ticking all of the boxes for me. It's definitely best suited for fall wear but it's just fine in my air conditioned building. I believe temperatures are supposed to rise quite a bit here today and fall for the weekend into the 60s/70s during the day and 40s by night (my favorite weather - perfectly suited for fragrance wear.)

    I wanted Vol de Nuit again today, but it's a tiny bottle and I don't want to run through it....so I'm vintage L'Heure Bleue parfum instead, and thinking how the best fragrances go on like self tanner.

    Shycat - you're pulling out the big guns this week. Enjoy!
    pelle - like ineespenes I am green with envy at your Midnight Violet. Wow. I miss that one.


    The last of my sample of:

    Fareb by Huitieme Art



    Snagged this at Osswalds, in NYC. It will always make me think of that store, in my memories, now. It was a fun afternoon exploring so many scents with Josie - one of the best perfume store sales associates I've ever met! Alas...I do not think I need more of Fareb. I love the swarthy spices and leather but I do not like the aldehydes or the way it disappears quickly.

    Self tanner, LOL, shycat. I have some but unless I am already tan it makes me look jaundiced. Maybe shimmer spray or something, instead. Anyway, glow on.

    Thought I'd share this, yesterday evening I got a compliment on my SOTD Creed Baie de Genievre, which was applied 9 hours earlier, from BNer HackerX. I met him as I was buying some stuff from him. It was a quick meeting, but we chatted for close to half an hour. Among the stuff I got was a 50 ml bottle of Insense, which I'm very happy to be wearing today - it is one of my favourites. Today isn't the ideal weather for Insense (it's kind of an early fall day, cool and cloudy, whereas Insense works best in summers), but it's still lovely.

    It's still hot and humid (though not as suffocating as usual for this time of year), and I'm enjoying a new bottle of Versace pour Femme / Versace Signature. I really love the wisteria/lilac combo, and the fruit isn't so much fruity as dewy, which has this cooling effect that I really like. It's fresh without being a freshie.

    When I first started my journey into fragrance-induced madness, I avoided anything light and airy and gravitated toward the scent-equivalents of steel-toed boots (I was a punk rocker once (hmm, and I was also an emo teenage poet once), what can I say). Something happens in your 30s when you just plain stop caring about what other people think of you. So yeah, I listen to mainstream music and I don't like David Lynch as much as I said I did and I wear fruity florals and sometimes I shop at Loft.

    So there. I'm wearing Versace.
