    Morning all!

    Today is the last day of my course of antibiotics, & although in the pub yesterday l coughed uncontrollably every time someone made me laugh (which was a lot!), l'm feeling much better in myself, so l think l'll be returning to work tomorrow.

    Today l'll be trying to get one or two things done, & l'm trying my mini of Rose Silk by Shanghai Tang. Not much rose here, to be honest.

    Good morning all! Starting the day in a favorite from my young adulthood, Liz Claiborne Vivid parfum extrait. Yes, my perfumes from my 20s are now vintage, I've suddenly realized. Dang I'm old.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    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..."

    Hooray for feeling better, teardrop!

    NCal, I bought a red Mazda 6 Grand Touring... I'll post a picture later today or tomorrow. It was my first time going through the purchase process myself, so I'm extra pleased.

    En Passant again today. It is gorgeous here today and I'm finally wearing sandals...with luck, no more socks (except for at the gym) until October.

    Hello, all!

    Glad to hear you're feeling better, Teardrop, and they say laughter is (one of the) best medicine(s), so I say keep it up! And perfumedlady, just a reminder, like your perfume, you may be vintage, but old is not an accurate descriptor!

    Picked at random from my bag of fragrances-to-be-tested this morning, and am enjoying AJ Arabia Widian Limited 71




    I'm getting much more sweetness from this than I was expecting, but I really like it. The oud is understated in all the right ways for me.

    Hope you have a marvelous Monday!

    Limited 71 fragrance notes: Bergamot, Coriander, Nutmeg, Patchouli, Ambergris, Oud, White musk, Amber, Incense.
    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

    I was too busy to post yesterday's SOTD - I wore Dodo by Zoologist and I wore a lot of it. It's an intense fruity fresh scent - I am still struggling to like it. I respect the perfumer a lot but this 'genre' of fragrance isn't my favorite. Nonetheless the lime note in it is fantastic.

    Today I took off work and I'm in perhaps a heavier-application-than-I-should-have-sprayed of:

    Tabac Tabou by Parfums d'Empire



    I tell you what - tobacco fragrances, these days, are anything but 'masculine'. So many of them feature a whole bunch of florals. This one has a huge narcissus note. It's very dramatic and for that reason I probably need to go easier on the trigger next time I wear this. I am probably going to 'gas out' my fellow diners at breakfast now. Oops. lol
