    Good Monday, dear friends.
    I'm not super religious, but I do observe the nine days preceding the Jewish fast of Tisha b'Av, which we observe from Saturday evening thru Sunday evening, Aug 10 & 11. These days include restrictions on pleasurable bathing, swimming, music, and wearing scent, among other things. I will do without my Steinway and my perfumes and reflect. On Tisha b'Av we read the Book of Lamentations. One interpretation of the fast is that catastrophe is the outcome of causeless hatred between people. Sadly, this is all too timely, and too close to home.

    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..."

    Before I forget, I meant to comment on Cook.bot's kitty pee purse story last week! Just want you to know, I cannot stop laughing! Is it weird that this made me want to run right out and get a new cat? A cousin of mine had a cat before she was married who started peeing her husband's clothes after the nuptials; it brought up memories of that kitty, too. They are strong communicators, those felines.

    How nice to read! This is one of my favorites! I went back and forth, couldn't decide whether to send that or EdT. I haven't tried the EdP at all and with EdT discontinued, I finally settled on parfum as the way to go. May as well know it in its purest form, I thought. If you like this, my guess is you'd like any form of Jersey.

    Polishing off a decant of Coeur de Vetiver Sacre, which is my kind of vetiver! But, time to use it or lose it; the decant was getting very old. Am totally doused so that it may go out in a fog of glory. Have a good day, all!

    I occasionally look for steals on Chant d'Aromes, Nahema, and Derby. And Vetiver.
    Ah, Nahema, the "edible" rose. Have scored a few minis over the years. Covet.

    Jujy54, thank you for your thoughtful post. It’s good to withdraw occasionally to delve into the deeper meaning of life, especially in the midst of great tragedy.

    I’m wearing Timbuktu again today, It has great longevity and changes character throughout the day. A masterpiece.

    Have a good day.
