    Good morning all !. On the dreary side here but will be out and about making the most of it before the horrors being forecast for next week hit us. Nothing like some parts of the US are having to endure (take care, folks) but still pretty tortuous. Thank goodness it is only set to a be a fairly brief spell.


    Finally taken the plunge with the recent arrival and that wonderful vintage Lanvin dna is already working it's magic. The star of the show here is undoubtedly the glorious rich plummy leather that just shines through in this stunning chypre. This is going to be one hell of a ride

    Lanvin - Rumeur (vintage parfum): aldehydes, bergamot, peach, plum, jasmine, clove, cardamom, nutmeg, civet, leather, tobacco, patchouli, green leaves, vanilla, sandalwood, oakmoss, vetiver.

    Hope you all have a great weekend.

    My car has juddered to a grinding halt - something wrong
    with the radiator apparently, which hubbie will hopefully be able to fix.
    It's temperature gauge went through the roof and I had to limp home the last few hundred yards.

    My SOTD is Eau de Rochas.

    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..."

    Scentless also, like ineespenes, but I can smell a bit of the remnants of last nights Apres l'Ondee by Guerlain before bed. Last night I went back to that swanky restaurant in the Design District (literally right next to the Creed boutique which was closed) Ember - with a co-worker for dinner. She treated me to dinner and it was delicious (if not a bit loud, this restaurant is very much a 'scene' now) and I had the most fantastic mocktails: one with lavender and blood orange and the other with cucumber and pineapple. I am craving them this morning.

    Plans to stay indoors and maybe go to the gym later. I'll most likely wear this (inspired by HouseofPhlegethon's post):

    Sampling today, Luckyscent sent me some with my bottle of Wowilla. Left hand, Memo Winter Palace. Right hand, MDCI Invasions Barbare. Testing them on the backs of my hands, which worked better when I was younger and they weren't all wrinkly. In other news, my attempt at "incorporating exercise into my day" as a recent newpaper article exhorted me to do, has not worked. If I'm honest, I'd rather drive to the gym and get on a treadmill than wander around the neighborhood, and I don't want to do squats while watching TV. So I'm back to the gym. I hope.
