    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..."

    hednic - congratulations! My parents have been married as long as you and your wife. They're good 'relationship role-models' that's for sure.

    ExtremeK - your lake trip sounds wonderful, good for you for taking care of yourself there. And congrats on the surprise about the Daim Blond. I love it when reformulation/non-reformulation of fragrances turns out for the better.


    Yesterday we picked up Giancarlo's family from the bus station, had lunch, took them to their airbnb on South Beach and then had dinner and went out for drinks with them. Got home late and exhausted. I wore Songe d'un Bois d'Ete by Guerlain (from a sample) - the one that smells like Leather Oud by Christian Dior. But it was so hot and humid that it disappeared quickly. The smells of dinner made up for it - we had Vietnamese food and I had the most delicious slow-cooked short-ribs I've ever eaten. Just thinking about them now makes my mouth salivate.

    Today, I've been cleaning up the apartment and making a bit pot of chili. So the entire apartment smells like cumin lol. So, it felt totally appropriate to wear this sample (which I am falling in love with more and more every time I wear it):

    Dirty Ginger by Heretic Parfums

    A beautiful day here. I'm wearing 12 sprays of Osmanthe Yunnan. The dog sneezed and shook his head when he walked by me earlier, but now I can hardly smell it. Prepping dinner ingredients for the week and thinking about baking something later if it's not too hot to turn on the stove.

    Went out. Figured out the next section of boardwalk. Dragged heavy stuff around. Sweated. Showered. Then Feminite du Bois'ed.

    I asked myself, what would be my fantasy get-away comme ExtremeK's. To start, I'd have to commit a violent felony, stealing explosives from the quarry and blowing up the highway that tortures us with noise. Then I'd be at the happiest place on Earth.
