    Good morning and happy birthday, Ken Russel!
    NCal, congrats on your milestone, too!

    Ineespenes, stay strong on your first day at work after holiday - let your holiday feeling stay with you for as long as possible and don't let them spoil it with mundane tasks!

    I will be wearing Rabarbaro again today - black tea, saffran, musk and a bit of rhubarb.

    Happy Birthday Ken Russel


    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, everyone!

    HBTY, Ken Russell, and awed congrats to N.Cal for your posting milestone! (Anyone else feel like N.Cal hits some kind of fantastic milestone with mythic frequency? I'm starting to think he's a fragrance super hero!)

    Anyhow, I feel like I'm returning from under work-and-life water (last week: My colleague was on vacation so I was doing my job *and* his, AND I had a week-long intensive professional development program [which didn't excuse me from the other work] *AND* it was tech week and performances for the last-of-the-summer radio theater performances. Then went directly into a Jewish fast day, which ended last night. Phew!)

    SOTD is a test-run of Marc de la Morandiere's Gengis Khan, with a tip of the spray nozzle to both Ms. Q and Hednic.



    More to come on my thoughts, but my immediate reaction was to put this on my wish list about 60 seconds into the wearing. Wow.

    Marvelous Monday, all!

    Gengis Khan notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Nutmeg, Clove, Peppercorn, Juniper Berry, Thyme, Lavender, Mint, Absinthe, Rosemary, Woody resin, Spices, Amber, Sandalwood, Patchouli.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Eee-yesss!

    No scent yesters when hosting our mini high school reunion, which was glorious. Felt like we all sync'ed up and restored our Borg-like hive mind. One of my friends brought dozens of photos, some of which I'd not seen before. I saw a pic from about 40 years ago with my husband looking painfully cozy with this damn beauty, and I got a sickly jolt of jealousy. Who the hell was this ... oh, wait ... that despicable tart was me! Good lighting, nice camera angle, and a really good ('80s) hair day made me unrecognizable to myself. I'm not telling anyone but you folks about this whole silly thing.

    Fetched a bunch of big stones from a new source this morn. Many more trips lie ahead. It's like the gods heard my prayers.

    Sure thing, Foxbins.

    Inees, I'm thinking of you. I can't think of anything actually uplifting about the Monday after vacation except that...well, it's not usually fatal.

    I'm looking around my perfume table and feeling uninspired. I need a good perfume that causes me to keep my big mouth shut. *tick tock* Just so you know, I've been sitting here at my computer screen for about 10 munutes with my eyes at half mast, glancing out at the brutal sun poking it's rays under my drawn blinds.

    Finally picked Ninfeo Mio from my Acey samples and it feels like the only scent in the world to pick me up for the afternoon ahead. Thanks, Acey!
