    Very cold here today, lots of dampness in the air and there is a high wind chill factor, too! We don't have to go out today so it will probably be an afternoon of watching movies or reading or a combo of both.

    I'm wearing Bottega Veneta Eau de Velours.

    Have a great weekend!

    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..."

    Banana Flambee by Demeter, since I never got around to synching again, yesterday.

    .....................................

    Thank you all, for commenting on Mr. Moth. Most of the moths I've seen in that size, here in PA are usually in tones of brown. He was easy to photograph. He barely budged, when I touched him, (N.CAL., since you asked). He was gone the next morning. He may have ended up as a snack for a bat, for all we know.

    Lol! The circle of life! I've never seen anything like that stunning moth. Just beautiful!

    I'm too late to wave goodbye to Larimar, but just in case, We'll miss you and also, I'm sooo jealous!

    I'm in 1957 today. Hope you all have a great Saturday!

    How do you like these?

    They are among my favourites, especially Cuir Mauresque.

    Very hard to believe! You should try it, it's pretty great stuff for a summer bath. Crispy. (But don't get the new stuff, blergh.)

    I don't have to work today, so I think I can face some Eau de Patou despite the heat.

    This isn't my photo, but look at the way they mashed up "atomiseur" and "vaporisateur" on the box.

    They are all nice in their own way, very different from each other. Cuir Cannage is absolutely huge compared to Cuir Mauresque, which I didn’t expect. I remembered it as being bigger but it is quite subtle compared to the other two.

    LOL at the moth talk---I've been busy and had to go back to see what king of moth got so much chatter---and Wow. I see the reason! I'm geared up with a U-haul truck rented to retrieve my youngest son from college--for the last time. He's graduated and now is looking for a job which he can do from home. I just got the fantastic news that he hasn't cleaned in a while---pfftt. Color me shocked. The manager will walk through on Monday so baby, best get scrubbing.

    Today I'm going to lay around and concentrate on dread. Is there anything to help sooth the prospect of loading up an apartment to move in this stifling heat? Doubtful, but I'm giving CC X a shot at it. I loved the moth picture and don't have much to share myself except this picture of a typical kitten brawl. Happy Saturday!

    I'm wearing Chergui today. My first favorite niche fragrance. My first Serge Lutens. It's representative of a lot of firsts. According to my SotD counter, I hadn't worn it since September 2017. That's probably indicative of a few things. I'm focusing on getting back to me.

    Weekends are my glimpse into retirement. I like what I see. I hope all of you enjoy yours to the fullest, whatever that means for you.

    Shycat, kitten brawls! I love them. And afterward, everybody collapses in a heap and goes to sleep.

    It's a lazy day here. I should go to the gym, wash the living room sheers, take the car in for an oil change, and clean the dog's ears but I don't want to do any of it. I'm wearing Une Rose Chypree and reading the Times instead.
