    Morning all!

    l have a day off, & today l'm trying Flos Mortis by Rogue, from part 2 of the Sample Pass. Thoughts to follow later in the relevant thread, but so far this is far less challenging than l was led to believe...

    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..."

    Hello and best to everyone. Kiliwia- we are experiencing the same weather here, a relief after the oppressive humidity.

    Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Luxe Edition. IMO this is even nicer than the original, warmer, richer, the florals not as high pitched. All to the good.

    Wish you all a good day.

    Cestrum sighting. My heart smiles.

    Off to the grocery store I go in JM Pomegranate Noir.
    In the heat of August, it gets hard to choose a fragrance and plan a menu.

    What does it smell like to you? Does it remind you of any other fragrance?

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing the beautiful coniferous Fille en Aiguilles today.

    After 60 days on the road handling family business, I’m now settling back in at home. I’m a little torn: although I crave normalcy and routine, I miss the freedom and adventure of traveling by myself and not always knowing what the day will bring or who I will encounter. I’m fighting a little deflated feeling by immersing myself in kickstarting my postponed bathroom renovation project. Onward!

    Have a good day.

    Ncal, I posted my extensive thoughts on the thread for Spice Blend here. While I was relatively impressed with Balade Sauvage, this one really misses the mark. I'd say...Azzaro Wanted by Night and Bvlgari Man in Black are both similar and more interesting IMO.

    Greetings all.
    Welcome audrikee!
    It's cooler and overcast the morning and I'm in Theorema. I usually reserve this for Fall/Winter, but it was right at hand and spoke to me. I just love this. There's a bottle on eBay right now for a decent price and I'm considering pulling the trigger. Right now I have a bunch of minis.
