    teardrop, I watched Episode 5 of GOT on schedule and I have to say it was quite satisfying. Just like in Episode 3 it's going to be a very battle oriented episode and sadly lots of characters will meet their demise.

    Testing out for the second time Chanel No 5 parfum. How many of you enjoy No 5? Having experienced Guerlain Vega on numerous occasions I actually don't find No 5 as difficult to wear as I anticipated.

    My SOTD

    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..."

    Hello and best to everyone. N. Cal - I had to grow into No. 5, it wasn’t an immediate or early love. I haven’t tried parfum yet but so far, my preferred forms are vintage eau de cologne and Elixir Sensuel.

    SOTD is Cartier Le Baiser du Dragon. Wish you all a good start to your week.

    I try to avoid references, reminders of Mother's Day. Just makes me sad.


    Quarry... What a bounty of Morels! I don't know if I've ever tasted them. If I did, I sure don't recall.

    MizQ, I have never in my life seen that many morels all in one place. I am positively aflame with envy.

    Today I'm wearing a 1998 Vol de Nuit EDT, from a deCamelcant. This scent might actually be too pretty for me. Since I haven't seen its bottle, I'm just going to plop in the one that gets my vote for the most beautiful bottle ever created in perfumery.

    I am enjoying an afternoon in the sun wearing Seville a l'Aube.
    Sunshine is so rare in these parts that I tend to binge on it when it does
    appear. A sunhat, sunglasses and Factor 30 are a must today.

    Good afternoon and all the best to everyone for the working week .

    As regards No 5, I'm with Terry all the way on the vintage EDC with it's tenacious musky base. I consider myself extremely privileged to own a bottle. Glorious stuff

    SOTD Monserrat by Bruno Fazzolari. Apricot and citrus. Weirdly likable and easy to wear.

    Another spritz-and-dash, though I am joining Cook.bot in mushroom envy re. Quarry's bumper crop. It *snowed* in western Massachusetts yesterday, with more in the forecast for today. Argh!

    Prada Infusion d'Iris for me today.



    Most satisfying Monday to everyone...

    nfusion d'Iris fragrance notes: Mandarin, Orange blossom, Iris, Vetiver, Frankincense, Benzoin, Galbanum, Cedarwood.
    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
