    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..."

    tdem1961 - how exciting. I've always wanted to go to London and Paris so I am quite envious of you. Hopefully you will be able to make it over to the Guerlain boutique - I know you (like me) love our Shalimar. Have a great time!

    Trilby Lark - thanks for saying that last night. It was as enriching and healing as I thought it would be. There were several moments during his speaking where my eyes filled up with tears. I also had front row seats - so seeing him so up close and not having a lot of visual distractions in front of me made it all that more powerful. I slept *so good* last night

    Today will be an incredibly busy day for me: Back to work; a meeting with my Manager; our company is participating in the Corporate Run (again Downtown Miami!) - there is about +120 of us going; Running the run (or walking a lot lol); Dinner with my partner (as he travels this weekend to go visit his mom and dad who are getting divorced and are selling the home he grew up in this weekend - so it's sort of his last visit back to his childhood home).

    I'm in a newly acquired mini - that is FANTASTIC. I nabbed two minis on eBay and I'd already sampled this scent once and forgot how enjoyable the quinine/tonic note is. Super refreshing and puts a spring in my step (which I will need today!)

    Frapin 1270 for today.

    Today is my oldest daughter's birthday. Not the oldest of all the kids combined - three stepsons are older than her - but the first daughter and it's also the birthday of Ella Fitzgerald!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Tauerville Patch Flash this fine day. We’re in the middle of floor installation in the kitchen, dining room, laundry room, and powder room. It’s looking good.

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    Mike, what a wonderful, uplifting day you had! Good job taking care of you!

    What do you think of Salome, HoP?

    Thanks for the commiseration, teardrop. I’m going to just buck up and make the best of the version I have now.

    We’re in Denver, on our way to California, and I’m indeed wearing Daim Blond, v.2. It’s roughly similar about 20-30 minutes in.

    ExtremeK, condolences on David's father's passing. I get the impression you're at peace with that inevitability. The reformulation of a beloved fragrance, is just a damn-Daim shame.

    Wow, tdem, London and Paris. Bon voyage indeed.

    Birthday tidings to Robin junior.

    Guerlain's rosey With Love is dovetailing with yester's Rose de Mai.

    Achy hands and occasional rain should keep me inside. So.hard.to.stay.inside. If I step out the door, I know I will lose my senses, grab a tool, and move something anchored to the earth no matter the physical toll.
