    Happy Birthday Cacio!

    teardrop, how was Episode 5 of GOT? I have to say there were a lot of bittersweet moments involving the goodbye some of these notable characters. I watched the making of the Episode feature on Youtube just now.

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday cacio!

    N.CAL, there weren't as many deaths of major characters as l was expecting, actually. But it was an awesome episode, & l'm anticipating a few surprising twists in the finale next week.

    mike, it's not that l missed an episode, just that it's always shown on a Monday here in the UK.

    l'm wearing Le Chevrefeuille for work on this lovely sunny 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..."

    Happy birthday to the brilliant and helpful Cacio.
    Have yourself a really beautiful day.

    Mike, the limited-edition Dior Lily (or Lily Dior) is misnamed as its only lily is lily-of-the-valley. It's a very sharp, green version, which I find refreshing, but only in spring. Wears better on fabric than on my skin. What makes it special is that I hold a distinct memory of being with Brielle (don't we miss her?) in her historic home where I lodged for the Boston meet-up. She gifted the bottle to me. That moment is etched deeply in all my senses.

    I think I have a few LOTV growing in a confined corner so I can sniff them once they blossom, but 99% of our plants are native. Here's prairie pasqueflower. No scent, but satisfying to the eye.
    Indulging my love for Chanel Bel Respiro. Mr. Q is away for the morning, so I won't offend him with its green notes.

    Quarry - oh Brielle how I miss her. I think she gifted me a sample of Djedi by Guerlain which I'm eternally grateful for. Good memories. I like lily of the valley, in small doses. In fact my only one I've ever owned a FB of I actually scored in Boston - a vintage Parfum of Diorissimo by Christian Dior.


    Bringing it back to da old school in:

    Royal Violets by Agustin Reyes



    Not just for babies, as the packaging would have you believe, this is a department store version of Apres l'Ondee by Guerlain, with a wonderful bready-iris mixed with the violets and other gentleman-ly smells.

    Good afternoon all !. Happy Birthday cacio

    Mrs Q / Mike, I also miss Brielle and her tremendous knowledge. I always remember her enthusiasm for Vol De Nuit inspiring me to investigate further and it's never been out of my wardrobe since. Love the prairie pasqueflowers, btw

    Your SotD sounds fantastic, Mike!

    Another fan of the prairie pasqueflower! Adorable, Quarry! What a great blue. I have a long patch of lotv against the north side of the house; they were a welcome surprise bonus when we bought the place. They're getting ready to pop into bloom now. Looking forward to tiny bouquets!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Jo Malone Tuberose Angelica today. I’m taking a load of donations to the charity truck today. I donate so often it’s surprising I have anything left to give!

    I adored Doris Day, especially in Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much.

    Happy birthday, Cacio!
