    Good morning all !. RHM, belated birthday wishes to Sofie . It has been inspirational reading about her progress over the years and I know she will go from strength to strength



    Confined to barracks today with torrential rain being followed by strong winds later. Decided upon a rich warm patchouli to lift the mood

    I wonder where she is these days? Haven't seen her posting

    Morning all!

    We returned from Kefalonia in the early hours after a long & tiring journey. The cold & the dreich came as a shock after the perfect Greek weather we'd been enjoying, but we had a wonderful week in a lovely hotel! Photos will be forthcoming once we've unpacked & sorted ourselves out, & l'll try to catch up on everything l've missed here while l've been away. Hope everyone is ok!

    Not scented or even dressed yet, so l'll be back to update.

    Good morning, all. I'm off to Kentucky to stay with my family for a couple of days. I just need to motivate myself to pack a few things and get behind the wheel. More coffee, I think. The sun seems late.

    I'm wearing Verano, a fresh airy stargazer lily from Sarah Horowitz. (Not in the directory) I don't feel fresh and airy. I feel damp and grumpy.

    Definitely more coffee.

    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 welcome back, teardrop!

    I had a mild case of the head monsters yesterday, but I've had worse; mostly it just left me feeilng drained, and I couldn't look at the computer screen or any other light source for very long. Hooray for audiobooks--and the massive selection on Scribd.

    It is damp and still rainy outside. I think we're on day 3 of overcast skies and freaky little storms coming and going. At least it's cool when it's gloomy. I was torn between going for broke with Dzongkha (always choice when the weather's like this), but I figured I'd break out the Givenchy III, which is both more and less forbidding. Vintage parfum is the way to do it with this one . . . .

    It's beautiful and sunny here - no clouds at all. It's very humid and warm. I plan on getting out of the apartment to enjoy it!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Thierry Mugler Angel Muse today. It’s nice. There’s a marine layer this morning which should burn off to reveal a pleasant, warm day. I look forward to a quiet day of reading and pottering.

    Have a good day.

    I spent yesterday in a haze of scent from testing entirely too many fragrances at once. I always think that next time I'll have more restraint and only test 1-2 so I can really experience them, but then my subconscious takes over and screeches "you still have one inch of space to fill on your elbow!" and it all goes to hell. Today I'm practically scentless so far, just a little Vanilla Blanc lotion from Thymes. I'll probably test more later (more HoM first impressions may be coming your way, teardrop and Shycat).

    It's currently 68F outside (squeee!), the kind of weather mood-swing that most of us Texans have come to begrudgingly appreciate. It doesn't look like it will get back into the 90s anytime soon, so hopefully we are actually on the road to autumn. I shouldn't speak too soon, though. Texas may hear me and throw in one more heat wave just to f*@# with us.
