    Happy Friday!

    Have a fantastic trip, tdem! I know you will be rocking Shalimar walking up and down the Champs Elysees. If you get a chance, let us know how you like the current extrait at La Maison.

    It should be 30 degrees C today... summer in April, but it will be over by tomorrow. So, live the moment!

    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!

    lne, glad you're feeling better!

    l'm synching with Un Matin d'Orage for another late shift today. lt's supposed to turn wet & windy here later, so this felt appropriate.

    Happy Friday, all!

    Tdem, I hope your trip is spectacular and that you have a fantastic time, and Ine, please continue to recover!

    Syncing in Miller et Berteaux L'eau de parfum #2 Spiritus / land (located my sample! After my recent reorganization of my fragrance shelves, it took me a couple of minutes to remember I'd changed where it "lives," but ultimately had success!).



    For some reason I think this should perhaps be named "Sky" - It has a much more ethereal quality to it than I'd expect from a scent named "Land." Still, I absolutely love it.

    SOTE will be Neil Morris Fragrances' Storm, which is one of my favorites of the line and features both a spectacularly lush hyacinth note, and a damp earth element I am particularly fond of, and that will keep me in sync.




    The end of Passover is in sight, and I'm looking forward to ushering out the holiday with pizza - and even though I don't like beer (sorry, guys. More for those of you who love it!), I'm tempted to have a sip of my husband's because really, it's a lot like liquid bread... Then make a fancy cocktail involving gin.

    Fantastic Friday, everyone!

    L'eau de parfum #2 Spiritus / land fragrance notes: Incense, Sandalwood, Rose, Tobacco, Spices, Ginger.

    Storm fragrance notes: Papaya, Lime, Delphinium, Purple Hyacinth, Tonka, Golde Musk, Earth and Marine notes.
    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

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin. Before BN, I used to think rose fragrances were insipid. No more! Now it’s my favorite floral and La Fille de Berlin is one of the best.

    Bon voyage, tdem!

    Have a good day.

    Syncing for LiveJazz's Earth Day in Chanel Sycomore EdT. We're expecting afternoon thunderstorms and this should be perfect for them.

    Safe travels tdem!

    Unfortunately I am still nearly completely anosmic from the nasty virus I've had. All other symptoms are improving but not this one! It's so weird not being able to smell my morning coffee, taste food which looks delicious, or smell my favorite fragrances. I'm looking forward to being able to report a complete recovery I am scentless today.

    I'm wearing this fragrance that I've been working on for quite a while. Seaside-floral fragrance with vetiver, gardenia and seaweed absolute. I'm dialing this one in...adding salt accord, jasmine absolute and ylang this week.

    Hugs to all of you achy people with get well soon wishes kisses. Backs, feet, hands--lilacs in bloom, trips to Paris/London, running big races, making new perfumes....I slept through it all. I cut my foot, as Acey knows but will keep silent about the mechanism thereof, sigh....confession is good for the soul. DIY pedicure accident. I can't walk on it so I lounged in bed and managed 15 hours of sleep the other night, and 10 more last night. I feel very strange today...utterly rested. Also, like a kid playing hookie--I cannot possibly work in my yard today...or really clean house, or run errands. Instead of a snowday, I have a foot day! I have my new spindles out and my wool, Jon's socks back out to figure out what exactly mistake got me so f-ed up, and my comfy chair is buried in things that give me seated joy.

    I am so in sync with Verte-Violette on the theory that of all my florals, violets grow closest to the ground.
