    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!
    Had a very busy week, and looking forward to a week off and a holiday with my family - it's been a while since I traveled together with my parents "like in the old days" so we decided to do it again. We'll do a car trip through Poland and Czech Republic. I can't wait to show my mom Warszaw University's Bibliotheque (it's a rusty metal and thick glass building that's all covered in greenery and has a beautiful steampunk-ish garden on its roof!) and I missed Prague.
    Clockwork Kitty aka CK (I forgot which ones of you coined both of these names, but I had a great laugh at it - you ladies and gentlemen are brilliant! I even chuckled to myself thinking she should be called CK One as she's my first cat after all ) will be well cared for by my boyfriend who volunteered to take care of her. I'm afraid to return to a twice-fatter cat than I left, as I can already see our differences in how much we think is enough food for the cat. I'm sure cat is on the opinion "the more, the better" on this matter.

    I'm wearing Habanita for the Havana synch and can't wait for beer o'clock and the start of holidays.
    Have a great Friday and weekend, scented friends!

    Lol @ "CKOne"! Brilliant! Have a great time on your road trip, ClockworkAlice!

    Skipping out on the sync in favor of sampling; plan to smell like lots of things by the end of the day. Started off with Lavender & Espresso by C&E and glad I did! Just the way I like my lavender, toward the more floral side. I did not even know there existed a scent with lavender and coffee bean notes. They work extremely well together, particularly as a morning fragrance.

    Happy Friday!

    PL... I wasn't sure I'd like Lavender & Espresso myself. It was a good, blind buy. So different!

    Heartbroken to hear of the unexpected passing of a friend and colleague. Barbara Bilach was our company pianist at Cleveland Ballet. She went on to become the principal pianist at ABT, American Ballet Theatre, to great acclaim. Barbara was an extraordinary musician, a hilarious and generous friend. I was a bassist in the pit orchestra. I used to get to the theater early to hear her play company class. She knew how to take any tune and mold it to the movement. Wearing Chanel N° 5 in honor and memory of my dear friend.

    PerfumedLady, thank you!
    The scent you are trying out today seems very interesting - coffee and lavender seems quite an unusual combo to me. It's hard for me to even imagine how it smells like - I'm glad you're enjoying it though!

    Aw, Jujy, I am so sad. I remember how much better it was to have live pianist in ballet class and to think how amazing you would have to be to be doing that for ABT blows my mind. She must have been a remarkable talent.

    I am sort of synched in Jasmin et Cigarette because, though I have never been to Havana (we planned to go next spring but these plans were smashed to bits by the return of the travel embargo) I would expect to find the same jasmine bushes we have in Florida, and people smoking.

    Many condolences for the loss of your colleague, Jujy. Very sad to hear it.

    I'm syncing in vintage Havana by Aramis -- though I don't expect it to last long in the 100F-degree temps today. Autumn can't get here fast enough.

    Jujy54, I am sorry for your loss.

    I am wearing Fille en Aiguilles again today. I’m starting on my bathrooms renovation project. I picked up floor boards from a HUGE warehouse near Los Angeles yesterday and visited a tile showroom. I’m going for the modern and functional hotel bathroom style. I’m currently obsessing over paint colors and leaning towards cool tones for the second story rooms.

    Have a good day.

    Good afternoon all !. Gearing up for a relaxing weekend after an horrendous week at work. Will be commencing very shortly with an early wine o'clock. Bring on the merlot ...


    Jujy, my condolences. She sounded a remarkable talent and a thoroughly decent person. What a blessing to have had her as a friend.
