    Hello fragrant friends,

    It must be crystal clear to everybody... there‘s a cloud of Tabac Blond in this room plus it is time for the TGIF celebrations, therefore it must be Larimar.

    Wishing you a great wine o‘clock or cocktail hour (I can vaguely hear cocktail shakers anticipating the TGIF celebrations).

    Cheers everybody and a proper group hug <3

    Hello everyone and happy Friday!
    Also, belated birthday wishes to Shivsri!

    Congratulations to everyone who had lovely Valentine's and hugs to everyone who didn't. This year I decided to own it by gifting myself a brand new lipstick and a potted orchid plant and going to bed early (I really need that sleep and going to bed early happens too rarely!). The orchid is actually a big deal for me, as I never dared to own one despite it being one of my favourite flowers (together with tulip and dandelion, both not very good for indoors). I think I inherited my love for them from my mom, my parents' house is just drowning in flowers of all kinds, quite a lot of them are various orchids. But I never dared to buy one for me in fear of just killing it in a month. I have killed lots of plants through the years. I have a survivor zombie cactus that has appeared to be totally dead for a few years and seems to slowly rise from its grave again. But after keeping some kind of Zantedeschia (can't rememeber which one) and three geraniums (all gifts from my mom) alive for almost a year I decided to take this risk. Stay alive, dear flower, please please please do. I'll try my best.

    Today I'm trying to sync with Gabrielle by Chanel in the honour of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel in her young years. I'm visiting my parents this weekend, and it's nice to smell this lovely for this occasion.

    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..."

    Hello and best to all. It has been a difficult couple of weeks for our family. My mother died on February 10th after a mercifully brief illness. My father is lost without her. Yesterday would have been their 66th wedding anniversary.

    My mother was a complicated woman which resulted in an equally complicated mother-daughter relationship. But I have her to thank for taking my sister and me to see The Nutcracker and Broadway plays; for playing everything from Count Basie to Sergio Mendes to Verdi; for my love of dance. She was often unhappy but could also be hysterically funny - mostly when she didn’t intend to be. She loved baseball, chocolate and, in her own unique way, all of us. I will miss her.

    SOTD is Guerlain Météorites. Take care, everyone.

    Good afternoon all !. (((Terry))), I'm so sorry. My thoughts will be with you and yours.


    Decided to opt for Winston Churchill for today's synch with his ancestral home being the inspiration. Penhaligon's - Blenheim Bouquet.

    Oh, Terry, I'm so sorry for your loss - and your written honor to your mother here is wonderful. May her memory be for a blessing. (((tdem)))

    Today's sync was easy for me Les Parfums Historiques 1804 George Sand.




    One of very few fragrances with gardenia in it that I actually like on myself - I suspect because there is so much else going on in there.

    Fabulous Friday to all, and to all a great wine o'clock!

    1804 George Sand Notes: Tahitian Gardenia, Corsica Peach, Hawaiian Pineapple, Clove, Nutmeg, Indian Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Rose of Morocco, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Benzoin, Vanilla, White Musk.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
