    The cold that is going through all my family has unfortunately caught up to me so I'm feeling a bit miserable today.

    I'm wearing Lime. Basil & Mandarin by Jo Malone.

    Wishing everyone a good day!

    CuddleCat and ineespenes, sending all the good wishes to you, I hope you both will start feeling better soon!
    Ines, glad to hear you're better today. I hope you'll get your well deserved holiday as soon as possible!

    I'm also starting to cough a little, but I'm not going to succumb to it, hot tea with honey to the rescue!

    Wearing Terre de Lumière by L'Occitane to get some of that honey on the outside, too.

    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..."

    Wonderful classic powerhouse - glad I have enough back-up to last a very long time. Will you be considering a full bottle ?

    CuddleCat and ClockworkAlice, I hope you feel better soon; please take care of yourselves.

    I'm glad to hear you're feeling some better, ineespenes. Giving yourself a break and some rest sounds like a fine idea. Being gentle with yourself does, too.

    Q, you're such a sweetheart. I'll tell you what -- this is a growth opportunity, and growth opportunities are by their nature never comfortable. Otherwise, no growth. So, I'm embracing it. But if I need a hug from time to time, I'll speak up.

    I tried to figure out what fragrance helped me feel most like me this morning, and I found myself pulled toward my BWF shelf. After a few trial sniffs, today's choice became very clear: Serge Lutens A La Nuit. There's just something about jasmine.

    I hope all of you wonderful people have a good day. And that those of you further east in the US find a way to stay cool.
