    Oh, I almost forgot: I had a Shycat moment at the grocery store yesterday. I was at the checkout register, about 6pm, and a woman walked into the store wearing only a terry-cloth bathrobe and fuzzy bedroom slippers. For real. I waggled my head and eyes at the cashier to get her to look too, and she just rolled her eyes and muttered under her breath "This ain't Walmart, lady." So, Shy, I guess if I ever enounter you dashing out for milk in your pajamas, it won't be quite as outlandish as I originally thought.

    Eau de Parfum Edition L' echapée du cavalier

    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..."

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday, CapriDog!

    Love the funny story, Cook.bot!

    l'm going into town today to try & spend a gift card l got for Christmas. Will it be perfume, or another pair of boots? Only time will tell.

    l'm wearing Habanita EDT, from a small decant l kept when l sold my bottle. l haven't worn it in over three years, so l obviously didn't miss it all that much.

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, Capri Dog!

    SOTD (not in the directory) is Glossier You. The combo of musk and a dry, vegetal iris note is affectingly simple and lovely.

    I don't think that was me! Is it Imaginary Authors? I haven't gotten around to them yet. Sounds perfect though.

    Still sticking to my rotation - was tempted to break out for Chanel anniversary, but am wearing Meraviglia (Re Profumo) - lime, incense... mmmhh.

    Happy birthday, Capri Dog!

    ExtremeK - enjoy your Serge, I fell in love with it also and have been really enjoying it this autumn/winter. Its one of my favorite new SL's.

    Quarry - I think ExtremeK was bringing to your attention that Tom Ford has re-released some of his original Private Blends & one of them is Black Violet (not Black Orchid).

    Kewart - Happy Belated BN Anniversary.

    Yesterday I didn't post, but I wore Oud Satin Mood by Maison Francis Kurkdjian and then at night some Smugglers Soul by Lush. Today it will be (prompted by Quarry):

    Black Orchid by Tom Ford

    Only a bathrobe? I hope that was an assumption and not an unhappily verified visual happenstance.

    Ahhhh ... then, nope. I'm not the one who shared ExtremeK's affection for BV, although violets in general have become a favorite note. Good catch, smart boy.

    Thankfully, just as assumption, based on no visible pajamas on the legs and décolletage.
