    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 wore Shalimar to bed last night, after a long absence of use for no particular reason, and this morning I'm dovetailing its lingering effects with Jicky.

    A weird observation from the other day, during the dry down on Rose Flash, I thought I picked up on a familiar vibe of Jicky. Makes no sense. A hint of a vanilla? A reminder of lavender? Must just have been a smell-ucination.

    I'm already packed for Florida, and DD and I don't even leave until Sunday afternoon.

    I hope you like it. I hadn't commented, but did notice you felt more secure at work--I'm glad for you. Nothing like a little hint of spring fever to perk me up as well.

    Here in Tennessee we've had a couple days of rain. It's raining all day today and we are due to get a couple more days of rain. I feel the need of Gardenia--choosing the one by Robert Piguet. Mine is a little 10ml roller ball and its just a cute as a button.

    It's Jour d'Hermes this morning. I got a whiff of celery as a top note this morning, but now it is its usual sunny self. I have Pilates again this afternoon and I wanted something that would be gone by then. I'm going to Singapore next week and I might bring this along, it does well in heat and humidity.

    A reprise of Iskander by Parfum d'Empire, because I think I'm falling in love. I thought it might be redundant amidst all the dry greens I own, but this one has a distinctive spiced personality. Lime leaves blowing across a stand of cardamom and tarragon bushes.

    The cardamom flower looks quite a bit like an orchid:




    I just learned the name is a Persian variant of Alexander the Great -- and that Russia has a ballistic missile with the same name.
