    You’re inspiring me, Quarry. One of my three goals for 2019 is to organize our family archives and create photo albums for my sister and my son. I’ve got a family tree going back to the 1600s with Norwegians coming to New York on Dutch ships. I have a lot of photos from turn-of-the-century eastern Colorado and Kansas.

    Three goals? You'll tell us the others when you're ready.
    I look forward to seeing some of those early western scenes.

    Teardrop, wishing you a strong immune system! That's my words for "get well soon." What great pictures today! I've enjoyed them all thoroughly. In sync in Vio-Volta, a dirty animalic violet that brought LoTR to me and KellyBelle in our opposite reviews.

    ((Teardrop)), I hope all the well-wishes are working and you’re feeling better!

    I love all the photos, Quarry! Do you think living next door to that plant as a child influenced your olfactory preferences ? Just curious

    I am not in synch today, but I am sitting on a plane in Chicago, waiting to take off for Berlin. Consequently, I am wearing my travel scent, Daim Blond. It’s as close to a signature as I’m likely to get.

    HoP, I owe you PM.

    3 sprays of this are almost too much, I am saturated with ambergris (the REAL stuff), sandalwood and that wonderful combination of musks, ouds, flowers and resins with some vanilla.

    Shycat, I've been interested in giving Vio-Volta another try since reading your thoughts on it. I tried it when my nose was much less seasoned and thought it was revolting. But maybe that's the point, to take it right up to the boundary of delicious and disgusting...it's kind of in the name, isn't it? I may toss a sample into my cart the next time I'm browsing Luckyscent.
