    Morning all!

    l had a slightly better night's sleep, but l'm still sniffling & sneezing this morning. Ugh. Thankfully my sense of smell is still working.

    l'm wearing Monsoon again today.

    Hello and best to everyone. ((((Larimar)))) thank you. It’s true, Shalimar would certainly be my signature if I could commit. Glad to see we both wore vintage Guerlain yesterday. Xo

    Shannon it’s been years but I do remember the similarities between Paul & Joe Bleu and Shalimar. We definitely were scent siblings yesterday.

    SOTD is Narciso eau de parfum. Enjoy the day.

    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..."

    Gabrielle by Chanel.
    I have a tester and I think I'll be sad when I finish it, it's a lovely smell, especially when jasmine (?) wears off a little bit.
    I've slept only for 2 hours today because the trip home took way longer than we expected due to weather conditions and super icy roads, so I really wanted something lovely today. It is super lovely indeed.

    The fabulously soft, mildly sweet, incredibly soothing Jo Malone Fresh Mint Leaf, from the limited edition tea collection by Christine Nagel. I wisely scooped up two bottles within minutes of smelling it during our New Orleans meet-up.

    It's an octopus day, as an old (and annoying) friend (RIP) used to call such days when one has a variety of disparate things to do.

    Hello, lovely BNers.

    This morning, I kept thinking I could smell, somewhere near me, the scent of a man who had been smoking while wearing a leather jacket. Turns out it was me and my Tuscan Leather...

    Lol, I love "octopus day"! We have those frequently at my house.

    Thank you so much for mentioning the meetup; Quarry! I have been following your awesome plans with envy! That weekend is usually the one and only time of year my family is able to get all the remaining generations together, and we do have a reunion planned for this year. If that should change though, I'm going to Chicago! Even if I'd have to plan it last minute, no problem, I could just come in for a day trip. I've made the drive to Chicago many, many times and there's also the option of hopping a train from Waterloo. It's all sorted out in my mind, if the opportunity presents!

    Also, I enjoyed the additional pics the other day! SotD is enough like family that I personally think family and ancestral pics are right on topic. Besides, cool pics go well with good smells!

    Did not know what I wanted to wear when I came here but I think I'll join N.Cal with some Shalimar Mexique. I'm working on killing off a bottle and may as well get busy on it. I'm very, very pro-backups for favorites and I do have more Mexique stored away. teardrop you definitely got a from me on your Stash backup! Hope your symptoms continue improving throughout the day. And get well wishes to Ebenas!

    You've made me want to get out my Gabrielle sample, ClockworkAlice! I set it aside because I just wasn't clicking with it at first. With Chanel, I've learned that I often do need to revisit later. Hubby did like Gabrielle a lot and you've made it sound so pretty. I'm craving another go at it now!

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Better get going on getting another backup of Mexique PL, you don't want to be left out in the cold with empty bottles down the road. I sense the formation of an enablement vortex spiraling

    D.S. & Durga Amber Kiso today, from a sample. This has monster longevity - I spritzed a bit on my arm last night to test, and it was still projecting quite powerfully when I woke up this morning. It also smells nice mixed with yesterday's longevity monster, Casbah. I don't know if I would have picked out the incense note in Amber Kiso as easily without Casbah loitering on my wrist.

    I hope everyone has a pleasant day!
