    Good morning everyone!

    Today I'm still wearing a cloud of cloves that is Dali by Salvador Dali. I feel quite strange wearing it because somehow it feels like it's a scent for an older and more mature woman than me (read: I feel like a little girl in her mother's shoes a bit) and it feels absolutely appropriate for the weather conditions and makes me feel cozy at the same time. I'm not sure how I feel about this scent and I'm not sure if I want to be associated with it, but it gives me warmth and coziness, and that's why I reach for it again and again. Do you have fragrances you kind of enjoy wearing but aren't sure they fit you at all?

    And this night I slept with YSL Opium on my wrists again, I find the cinnamon in it absolutely soothing, warming and energizing at the same time, but I'm concerned that all I can smell in Opium is that cinnamon. Damn good cinnamon, but where is everything else? Is my nose that bad or is this fragrance (or at least the newest version) really mostly about cinnamon and everything else is muted? I'm confused. I'll try not to use up my tester vial and try it again in bigger intervals, maybe my nose will get better with time.

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday, lne!

    The dreich has lifted & it's cold & sunny here! l'm still full of snot, & wondering why the echinacea is taking so long to kick in this time - usually it knocks a cold on the head in a couple of days. This virus must be a nasty one.

    l'm wearing Smuggler's Soul today, for its soothing sandalwood properties.

    Happy Birthday Ines.

    I am wearing Seville a L'Aube for a massage followed by the dentist.
    Would prefer those to be the other way round I think!

    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..."

    I'm slouching around the house waiting for the sun to come up, and testing Heritage on the back of my hand, courtesy of Acey.

    I've been up and down, back and around with these masculines he shared, but I think I'm ready for another sprint at them. Heritage....well, there aren't any flowers, sugar, or vanilla, or amber. It's still pleasant to me, and as it progresses, more than pleasant--really very good. This is how I like pepper--not pushed onto some poor defenseless white floral for the sake of making it "modern." Still, I don't think Heritage will bump Caron (ETA: Carven, Carven, Carven. I read it Caron at a first glance and can't get it 'unstuck') Homme off it's pedestal. I can't let got of flowers and tonka/vanilla completely!

    Happy birthday, Ines! Hope you have a lovely day.

    Wearing the amazing Rituale by Menditterosa today - it's all of the various 'real-world' incenses I've ever loved, all rolled into one. If any of you are yet to try this house, I can't recommend them enough - fantastic quality.

    Have a grand day, y'all...

    Kewart I hope the massage relaxes you for the dentist appointment.

    Shycat, I'm a sucker for pepper. Not sure why, it does just add some sort of edge I usually like.

    Samsara for today. I have a pink sweater, deep brown pants and this seems very coordinated with the scent.

    Happy Birthday, Ine! Hope it's a great one!

    Demeter Pruning Shears today, a Kurkdjian rose. My winter rose craving is on; those bright reds and pinks just seem to perk me up during these looong stretches of grey and dark. Due for snowstorms here beginning today, so the dismal skies are probably sticking around. Blech!

    I tried Paris-Venise (too sweet! But nice and I wouldn't turn away a much smaller bottle, if they offered it) and didn't hurry to try Biarritz because it doesn't sound like me (but will sniff eventually). I did also try Deauville, and that's the one! Went right on the wishlist, possibly for spring. Excellent choice, Kiliwia; you smell wonderful!

    Have a great day, everyone!
