    Hello all,

    I’m breaking away from my May rotation to do some sample testing this week. Luckyscent recently offered free shipping on samples so I ordered five: Commes des Garçons x Monocle Hinoki, Etat Libre d’Oranger Fat Electrician, Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Route de Vetiver, Parfum d’Empire Wazamba, and Phaedon Black Vetiver. Today, I’m wearing Fat Electrician.

    Have a good 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..."

    Hello fragrant friends!

    While I was piling up firewood today the Austrian government was literally falling apart (Ibiza video for the insiders). So, I did a toast on the soon begone administration with a mint julep to do justice to the occasion.

    Racine for tonight.

    Cheers to all

    I approve of your activity and your fragrance.

    I was hauling rip rap by 5:22 a.m. and was still dragging other stuff around until noon. Enough! Time now for a SciFi Saturday afternoon. Just for the sake of straying from my wardrobe, I'm wearing an old sample of New Orleans' Hove Camellia. It's more musky and powdery than floral, with a soft, vintage vibe.

    I wonder what I will smell like a week from now ...
