    Hello!

    I visited my best friend yesterday and we sat in her balcony talking...for a bit far too long into the night. Now I'm a bit sleepy.
    Wearing Rabarbaro by L'Erbolario and sipping coffee with some milk.

    hednic, I got to try Oriental Leather yesterday and enjoyed it quite a lot.

    teardrop, have a proper sunny and summery day!

    Wishing everyone a nice Tuesday.

    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..."

    Thanks for the information regarding cats and catnip, PerfumedLady.
    That photo wasnt of my garden - just one I downloaded from the web!

    Eagerly anticipating the sunshine here too.
    Yesterday was glorious and my garden hummed with bees and
    was filled with birdsong.

    Yesterday's pic was a great choice all the same, kewart! It inspired some garden clean-up of my own, lol. And today's is just eye-poppingly beautiful! What a special place to have just steps away.

    Going with En Avion extrait this morning, the last few dabs. Have a good day, all!

    Enjoying this more than I care to admit. I remember how heavy this stuff was at the Chicago meetup but wearing a spray to the neck and back of the hands it's quite soft and subtle. Opens with that green-bitter almond accord and drying down to a sort of powdery spicy smoke. Glad I gave it a chance!

    Jon, you can say that again!

    Thanks CuddleCat, but unfortunately l had to work today, & we don't have the luxury of AC here, so things got decidedly sticky & unpleasant. And the heat was like a furnace walking home. No fun at my age when the hot flushes are doing their worst.

    Post cold shower, l'm wearing Philosykos this evening. We'll be enjoying a nice cold prawn & avocado salad shortly, followed by ice cream.

    teardrop, I sympathise about the air conditioning. We do have it at work but it is rendered largely ineffective when the heat is at it's worst which completely defeats the purpose. Year after year we have visits from clowns with clipboards taking notes and making assurances but nothing ever changes . (Btw, I never heard of anyone having hot flushes at 21 before ).

    Vintage Gengis Khan EdT today, thanks to Bavard. Actually, I sprayed it on last night and it is still on board 12 hours later. Potent stuff. The opening salvo was pretty harsh, but it settled down quickly into a lovely spicy amber.

    Have a good day, all.

    RHM, sorry that flooding has struck your region.
    ClockworkAlice, hardly anything better than a long visit with a good friend.
    Kewart, that photo is frame and hang worthy. Beautiful.
    Yay! Rynegne is back.
    I'll have to check out the Brit's headlines. I'm plenty tired of ours.

    Good weather. Went out. Weeded. Mowed (new mower). Got stung x2. Sweated. Showered. Now New Haarlem'ed.

    Hi, everyone! Sounds like you’re doing well, heat (in all its forms) notwithstanding. Teardrop, I feel your discomfort

    And you all smelled so good today!

    Kewart, that’s a lovely photo! The colors really speak to me. I agree with Jon — you should absolutely frame and hang it

    I gave a 2-hour training on California’s new privacy law (effective 1/1/2020) to 200 people today. It was so much fun! Tomorrow the same group gets to shoot questions at me at a second session for 90 minutes. Bring it!

    I wore Galop d’Hermes today, and I smelled fantastic!
