    Good morning to you all.
    I am celebrating the safe arrival of my latest great-nephew.
    Arthur was born close to midnight last night weighing in at 7lbs10oz
    (I don't do kilos where babies are concerned) He came out face up so my poor
    niece didn't have the best of labours but they are both ok now and having a well-deserved rest.

    I will wear Caron Royal Bain de Champagne to wet his little head with.

    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 and Congrats to Kewart Today is a cold and rainy day. It was hard getting up today, since I would much rather stay in my warm bed than go to work. At least I have a relatively short shift. For the synch today I concidered both Mystere and Mandarine mandarin, but settled on Mandarine mandarin. It felt safer for work Have a great day all

    Top o’ the morning from the top o’ t’hill! Ok, I know it’s the afternoon, but poetic licence, blah blah.

    Hope you lovely lot are all well. My efforts to keep up with you all have fallen flat, but I had to drop by today on two counts...
    1)Have you seen the current online offerings from TKMaxx (UK only)?! I wish I hadn’t, because now I have a house all to myself, I’m on a buying ban because eating is (mostly) more important than fragrance. Le sigh... ��
    2) I’m testing some of Mugler’s Les Exceptions today. Supra Floral and Oriental Express are faves so far, Cyprissime is also very nice. I’ve not seen the prices for FBs, but nevertheless, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I think teardrop and tds would both enjoy Supra Floral, if you ladies haven’t already tried it...

    SOTD - all of the above with a dash of Over the Musk and Fougère Furieuse (I’m at home today, should anyone be concerned for my welfare wearing all that out in the wild ��)

    Congratulations to the young mother and kewart--Welcome to Arthur!

    I spent far too much time trying to figure out what I have that's an Autumn fragrance, so this is a long post. Apparently I only register Spring, Summer, Winter. In the end I chose PdN Sacrebleu but at the critical second my hand strayed to Blue Amber, and I grabbed it to post.

    I don't know if it's actually an Autumn fragrance for everybody else, but it is for me, having bought it in the summer. One of my happy memories with my youngest is driving him to school each morning--I fear we usually hit McDonald's for McMuffin breakfasts, eating them in the TSC parking lot as we watched the rest of the car riders/buses arrive. One fall I wore a lot of Blue Amber and I recall one particular morning he was extra exuberant, even for him, and he threw his arms wide in our front yard and said "That smells so GOOD! WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO SMELL THAT???

    He changed with puberty--not just the usual ways, but the smell of coffee grounds would give him a headache in about five minutes. He loved to burn a Christmas Cookie candle but that was it. The next fragrance that got an enthusiastic reception? Mysore Lime! Gifted at the start-ish of this fall semester.

    Long story long, I'm in Mysore Lime---wearing a summer scent but feeling the autumn.

    I do love this one. Atmospheric scent, but it smells great, too. Fantastic Friday to all!


    Burning Leaves notes: Burning maple leaves.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hello everybody,

    I do hope you are all swell. Life has been busy. Spent some real quality time in the mountains this summer. Enjoying our last summery day and evening outside. Accordingly, cocktail hour to be followed by wine o‘ clock.
    Today I was in Lanvin Scandal, vintage extrait.

    Congrats to kewart!

    Happy Friday

    shycat, it's still warm here too...I think it's supposed to drop dramatically in the coming days (in Chicago at least.) Still plenty of time to enjoy the summer stuff.
