    Good morning!
    Today I'm in synch with liquorice and Black Opium Intense.
    Wishing everyone a nice Friday and sending feel better wishes to everyone that needs it!

    Also it seems like I'll be adopting a cat that my colleague's sister rescued a few days ago, will have to prepare my home for her. She is staying at her home right now and is a lovely thing - so I'll take her unless her rescuer changes her mind and decides to keep her, of course

    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Friday, 19th July, 2019

    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..."

    Good morning. It's lashing down with rain here
    so the garden is lapping it up.

    I am synching in Fleur d'Oranger by Serge Lutens for the notes
    of cumin and tuberose, which I normally avoid. Here they are used
    beautifully to make this a ravashing scent.

    Good morning all !. Day off today and planning our own interpretation of a meal we had in Nice for this evening. Will be attempting marinated tuna steaks with tomato and bean salad followed by nectarines with Grand Marnier chantilly cream. This will be a team effort with yours truly doing the first course and Jenny following with the dessert. There is a NZ sauvignon blanc already chilling which should be the perfect accompaniment

    Joining ClockworkAlice today with the same note (liquorice) albeit in a different scent.

    Hello, lovelies! Thought it was about time i dropped by to say 'hi'.

    I hope all here are well and that life proceeds with as few insults as possible! If that's not the case, then hugs and best wishes are making their way to you right now... (((SOtDers)))

    Life rumbles on here. A few months in some of the FB groups have seen my collection expand with some nice (and very reasonably priced) additions. However reasonably priced they were, I overspent, so am currently on a buying ban and avoiding posts where folk rave about the latest £300 must-have. Sigh... I do have some lovely additions, though - most recently a FB of HoS Passion de l'Amour. It's lovely stuff and feels like a mini-pinnacle upon which I can temporarily bow-out of the buying game, ha!

    At some point, I should catch up on the last month or so of your posts - it's been too long!

    Oh, and my SOtD is the wonderful Ninfeo Mio, which I will be forever grateful to tDS for recommending to me, all those moons ago. I'm defo not in the raspberry sync, though!

    Like CWAlice and Jon, black licorice or anise is not a top attraction for me, but I have undergone something of a conversion as Lolita Lempicka wiggled its way into my affection. I just need to apply discreetly once DH has gone to his workshop since he's pretty much appalled by LL.
    Top Notes: Anise Seeds, Violet Petals, and Ivy.
    Mid Notes: Sweet Licorice, Tonka Bean, Delicious Amarena Cherry.
    Base Notes: Crunchy Praline, Delicate Iris, and Deep Musk


    Alice, I think it's in the BN membership agreement that you HAVE TO post a pic of a new pet. Shycat is a pillar of example.

    It's humid, and the heat index is supposed to reach 110°F/43°C. Frustrated. I want to go out, bend over, and weed until I morph into a quadruped.

    Can't resist expressing my adoration for those cap tops.

    Jon and Quarry, what a team of liquorice antifans!

    Jon, your dinner sounds fantastic. Hope everything goes just as well as it sounds!

    Quarry, I am also rather intrigued by Lolita Lempicka for quite some time, because somehow despite having both liquorice and anise - both horrendous things - I have a feeling I could possibly actually enjoy it. Maybe it's the beautiful bottle that's telling me so? I'll just have to find a way to test it somehow, as I never see it in physical stores around here and blind buying even the smallest and most discounted bottle of something with two of my kryptonites is just too dangerous. I'll keep watch.

    Quarry, if everything goes according to the plan and there are no complications, cat photos will be uploaded on Saturday. We are still looking for her past owners, as she is very gentle, lovely, potty trained and comfortable at home, so we are not sure if she's lost and someone is searching for her or she was simply thrown out. And she also will be taken to the vet and so on.
    I hope the weather gets at least a bit milder for you to go out without morphing into anything!
