    Happy Birthday, Giancarlo! So nice to know your name after four years. Belated birthday wishes to tdem, too! The International Date Line has foiled an on-the-day wish.

    I saw a line stretching down the block yesterday and was hoping for something yummy to eat, but no—it was an Adidas store. There must be a new shoe out. I saw a second line almost as long for something called Tiger Sugar. I Googled it and it’s brown sugar caramel, tapioca pearls, and milk, so a variation on bubble tea. I passed by and got a hotteok instead, a pancake pocket filled with honey, cinnamon, and sugar. Authentically Korean, the Tiger Sugar is from Taiwan. I think it’s really funny that Koreans seem a little obsessed with cheese. Lobster with cheese, cheese muffins, grilled cheese (no bread, just cheese), cheese ice cream, and t-shirts and tote bags saying “Cheese” in bright yellow letters. Asia is not known for using dairy products in their food so I’m wondering where this interest in cheese came from. Might have to do some research when I get home.

    I found out yesterday that 10 Corso Como has a store here, but I didn’t like their scent so I won’t make a trip to visit them. Wearing PG Cuir d’Iris from a sample.

    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..."

    Afternoon all!

    foxbins, sounds like the Koreans love their cheese almost as much as l do! ln my opinion, there is no dish that cannot be improved by the addition of cheese.

    We're off out for lunch shortly. l'm wearing OSA by Note di Profumum, from my new decant. This is a must-try if you love ylang ylang!

    An enchanting sight last night, in my own front yard: clouds of fireflies, floating above the grass. I've lived here 12 years and never once seen a lightning bug before. Could it be the drenching spring we've had? That would certainly account for the mosquitoes that chased me indoors.

    At dusk tonight I'll drench myself in Florida Water cologne and see if its alleged mosquito-repellant properties allow me to enjoy the electrical show a little longer.

    We see fireflies reliably near the 4th of July. Your temps must be warmer than ours, Cook.bot. They really are magical.

    Layered Tauer Rose Flash with Fragonard Rose de Mai for a clean-athon. House needed it as dog seems to be maturing into her shed-adolescence.

    cook. bot and Quarry... I saw a few lightning bugs [fireflies] the last week of May. Earliest I've ever seen them to my memory. We usually don't seem them here until after June 15th or so.

    Out on the [back] road today I saw a yellow-phase rattlesnake and a lovely little wood turtle - both, catching some rays.

    Happy Birthday to Gianicarlo! Hope you guys are having a nice birthday weekend.

    We went on an 8 mile bike ride which was a lot of fun. Took my wife down some dirt trails I mountain bike. Her reaction was hilarious. Then we went on a late lunch overlooking a pretty golf course in the area.

    I'm wearing Baikal Gris from a sample today...well...I should say...I was. Scrub a dub dubbed this one right off. It's not bad, just an overload of violet which is not for me.

    I did end up buying Tom Ford Lavender Extreme today for about $140 off of retail. My wife wanted me to get rid of my "stinky" colognes...so I'm finally starting to replace some of the ones I've sold with Non-Typical Freshies...I just can't wear aquatic after aquatic. I'm glad I went to the meetup as I was able to get my not on quite a few of these new purchases.

    CuddleCat, Quarry, foxbins, NCalFragR, JohnRodgers, tdem1961, ineespenes - thank you for the birthday wishes. The birthday dude is currently taking a mid-day nap (he partied a little too much last night) but we've already had a friend of his come over and make a big BIRTHDAY breakfast for him, here at our place. It was so sweet. I gave him his grab bag of small gifts (I already bought him his bday gift last week, airline tickets to NYC in August - a solo trip he will take to his birthplace and see family), a HUGE Disney Princess balloon (you should have seen me trying to drive with this huge balloon in my front seat) and a silly card. We're having a no-nonsense pizza and wings dinner tonight because that's what he wanted and that's how he rolls.

    I've worn sandalwood all morning: Concrete by Comme des Garcons when I woke up and Santal Blush after a midday bath (that was filled with vintage Mysore sandalwood oil - a few drops). When we head to dinner I will wear:

    Hope the pizza & wings were yummy, happy birthday Giancarlo!

    We went on the metro with the dog to a local outdoor market and had pizza and ice cream down by the canal. Today was the hottest day of the year so far, 29C.

    I wore Grandiflora Magnolia Michel for the day, have now refreshed with TF Jasmin Rouge.
