    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..."

    I didn't post all weekend but I just spent some time reading through the threads (moth, fences, Jean Nate, decluttering, kitty fights - wow you all have been busy!) - I wore Cumming, Dodo, Santal Blanc, Serge Noire and lots of sandalwood oil one evening, a luxurious application of some from Enfleurage that a friend picked up when he was in NYC.

    I'm up early for Cross Fit, in the lat few drops of this spa-fragrance that I think I bought in the Dominican Republic (am I still in Sync?):

    Happy Monday, everyone, and big CONGRATS, N.Cal, on your posting milestone! 37K?!? Holy cow.

    Also, I think Mike is definitely still in sync from Friday.

    I'm in Jean Patou 1000 today.



    Heading into tech week for the radio theater company I'm lucky enough to work with (all the performances are actually done before live audiences, then the best-of-the-crop is mixed down for CD and podcast sale) - It's a lot of fun! This show is the annual summer mystery series, which has featured one show of Sherlock Holmes (adapted from the Conan Doyle stories) and one of some other detective (Hercule Poirot, Arsene Lupin, Lady Molly of Scotland Yard, etc.) for the last several years.

    Anyhow, Marvelous Monday to everyone!

    1000 fragrance notes: Osmanthus, Tarragon, Angelica, Bergamot, Coriander, Bulgarian rose, Green notes, Grasse jasmine, Geranium, Lily of the valley, Iris, Eucalyptus, May rose, Mysore sandalwood, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Violet, Vetiver, Civet, Musk, Amber.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    This is why I always come here when I can't decide what to wear! Someone is bound to have the answer. Pamplelune sounds great, I'm joining you today!

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    ComDiva, I love how radio theater is coming back.

    Against type today in Fragonard Rose de Mai, which seems to be just rosey rose roses. Fresh and good for summer, is not turning bad on me, staying cool rose, but I was SO restrained with the application that it's very faint.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Oud Ispahan today. I’m attempting to be productive this week. In other words, doing things I don’t want to do that must be done. Sigh... First up: scheduling exterior painting estimates for the house.

    Have a good day.

    Okay, you cross-fit, swimming, cycling exercisers, I've got a fitness challenge for you: carpet dragging. We site prep weedy territory by laying carpet over it for a year or more before sowing seed. This past spring, we'd peeled off and stacked a bunch of carpet from where we then sowed a cloverfield to attract deer. That carpet has been sitting all this time because we needed it to stop raining for a few days so it'd dry out and be less heavy. Although not all of the pieces were thoroughly dry, today was our best opportunity in months, so we hefted the beasts up to our next kill zone. Sweat?! Man, I was drenched. Then the dog decided to perfume and streak herself by dive-gliding through deer poop, so she and I just shared a much-needed shower.

    I'm tri-sampling ...
    Le Galion Iris offers an opening impression of rooty iris, but then turns into just a nice, generic niche-type perfume.
    Byredo Gypsy Water smells like a watered-down spice scent which grows sweeter as the heart develops. It just makes me want to go get vintage Opium to smell how a proper spice scent radiates.
    Heeley Blanc Poudre isn't lying about being powder, but it's not baby powder. The base notes are supposed to be musk, vanilla and sandalwood, but I got more of a weak tonka impression.
    ...Do Less. ... Own Less..... Say "no" More Often.

    What a trophy! Can't wait to hear all about La Rumeur when you open it.

    I don't think I should subject any of my perfumes to this misery. It's bad enough that I have to endure it.
