    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, & Happy Birthday, Bavard!

    Planning to catch up on a few chores around the house today, albeit in a leisurely manner, & trying my sample of Morah by Pryn Parfum.

    Bavard, happy birthday to you! Have a great day and a great year!

    Today I'm wearing Jaipur Bracelet by Boucheron - I bought a mini for super cheap just to try it out and found it's a very nice aromatic and slightly green fragrance, very suitable in warm weather. I love that it has a cypress note among others - I'm not sure if I can discern it clearly, but the scent does have some piny feel to it, and I like it.

    And now Bavard? If I were astrologically inclined, I'd say Geminis had a disproportionate connection to our group.

    Angel Muse and I are going to see if we can use a piano hinge, rivets, pvc pipe, and fence stakes to hide our "submarine" propane tank today.

    Hello everyone and Happy birthday to Bavard Today is my last day of time off before it's work again tomorrow ( luckily a lateshift ). I plan to visit a friend, cook some nice food together with her and have some wine. Sotd is Angel. I try to finish it since the colour has changed to a kind of yellow and it's about 15 years old Still smells nice, though .

    Happy Birthday Bavard!

    Wearing Tom Ford Lavender Extrême today. This one is absolutely blissful.

    Hope all of the dads had a nice Father's Day yesterday. I surprised my dad with tickets to the White Sox game and my brother showed up too (he wasn't supposed to be in town.) My dad lost it and started crying...before he even knew we were taking him to the game...then I said you have to hurry up and get your jersey on! He was confused...told him we were going to the ballgame and he lost it again! He's getting sensitive in his older age!

    Happy Birthday, Bavard! So nice to put a face to the name in Chicago.

    Speaking of Chicago, I'm determined not to let the samples pile up, so today I'm trying Cuir Velours. It started off very nicely, and I thought perhaps I had found an "everyday" leather, but it has gotten sweeter and sweeter, and is now candied leather. So nope.

    Q, my moon sign is Gemini. As a Pisces/Gemini, I'm of two (opposing) minds about many things. Or maybe that works out to 4 opposing minds....

    I think as their kids get older, dads are more comfortable showing feelings that have always been there. As a parent, I'm seeing David struggle with knowing how to show our teenagers how much he cares because they *seem* so uncomfortable/unwilling to receive it. I keep telling him it's got nothing to do with him and everything to do with their trying to navigate their way through adolescence and their own evolving sense of self. When moms and dads act like they think moms and dads should act (mom emotional, dad strong/stoic), all is well. When they start seeing their parents as more complex people in their own right, I think it throws them for a loop.

    Consider it the highest compliment to you and your brother that your dad feels free now to show you his complexity.

    Have you picked up a sample of Ombre Leather yet? Or are you just waiting for Cuir Cannage? I now have approximately 50mls decanted. I add 20-25 sprays every time I walk by the bottle.

    Today I'm going with the-opposite-of-skank and enjoying JFP jasmine, in Serge Lutens A La Nuit. For the life of me, I can't find a single indole. And, believe me, I've tried.
