    Grimoire by Anatole Lebreton

    Just got a decant of this and it's one of the most peculiar perfumes I've ever worn. Spooky, and very aptly named, too -- it smells exactly like I'd expect a dusty, ancient book of sorcerer's spells and incantations to smell, if I were reading it in an underground stone cavern that looked like this:

    The Professional Beauty exhibition is over for another year. It’s changing so much but great to catch up with people and meet new people. Have to do a lot of paperwork and send a ton of emails so wearing aleksandr by Arquiste as I don’t want to smell another rose fragrance today.

    Interesting that of the niche brands about 7% were introducing fragrances .....some of which were very good. So every time I had to race to get a tea or go to the bathroom I came back with more perfumes

    If I get through my pile of work this beautiful morning i will post some photos.

    Have a great 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..."

    Morning all!

    Apparently yesterday was the warmest winter day on record here in the UK, with parts of Wales enjoying 20 degrees centigrade. Today is set to be similar, so l'll be off soon for my late shift in Crystal Flowers, which l usually only wear in spring/summer.

    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

    Nice to see you! Actually though, I've been here every day for more than a week! Was just thinking I'm about due for a day off! Must keep a healthy balance when it comes to this interwebs stuff.

    Nothing too shocking to report scentwise; my good and easy-to-be-with friend Jersey for today. EdT version. Have a good day, all!

    It (Grimoire) is very strange. Sort of jolie-laide. I'm going to be brave and wear it to work, and hope that people don't think I spent the night in a mausoleum.
