    Today, I couldn't decide between Doe in the Snow by 4160 Tuesdays & Tiare by Ormonde Jayne so I'm wearing both - one scent on one side & the other one on the other side.

    Have a good day!

    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..."

    Happy Birthday, ComDiva.

    I am just about getting back into the swing of things after a difficult Sunday spent in A and E with
    yet another back sprain. I was trying on a pair of ballet pumps in TKMaxx when I felt a sharp twang and my back
    went into a very painful spasm. It took a good few breaths of entonox to get me onto a stretcher and
    into the hospital, where they spent 8 hours trying to get me off the bed with various cocktails of drugs.

    I have just managed to have a quick shower and applied some Ferre (iris) before a visit to the chiropractor
    later on this afternoon.

    What a scary incident, kewart! Gentle hugs and many get well wishes to you!

    I'm just beginning to re-join the living; have been under the weather with some sinus/respiratory thing and boy is it a nasty one. Knocked me right down. Just lounging today in my "sick" scent, Eau de Cologne Imperiale. Hope you all have a good day!

    Good morning, and thanks for the birthday wishes! Tonight I will wear Irisss on one wrist and Ambre Sultan on the other. Oh my goodness, won't that be a confusing combination. But I will smell goooooood, no matter which way I turn.

    This morning DH tucked a very fun perfume-related birthday card on one of the central shelves of my collection, right where I'd see it while picking my SOTD. My computer's being cranky about letting me share it here, but if I figure it out later, I'll add it!

    Oy,Kewart and PerfumedLady (and anyone else who needs it), fell better!

    SOTD is Robert Piguet Knightsbridge.



    It's a gorgeous fragrance, rich, sweet/spicy with a buttery element I love, made all the more special because it was added to my collection courtesy of a certain tall, English BNer...


    Terrific Tuesday to all!

    Knightsbridge fragrance notes: Nutmeg, Rose, Orris, Sandalwood, Leather, Tonka bean
    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

    Wow, kewart, what an awful experience. I wouldn't wish back problems on anyone. Positive vibes, for sure.

    PerfumedLady, such a lousy thing shouldn't afflict lovely you. Complete recovery wished for.

    DH is away for the day, so I can stink it up big time with Bel Respiro.

    Oh goodness, everyone is smelling *so* good today!!! Is it also that I am missing perfume because I haven't put on any yet? What's the perfume equivalent of a growling tummy when you see/hear about/smell some delish food? Nose twitching? Lol

    Happy birthday, Com Diva and happy belated birthday, Ken Russell! ��

    Hope you feel better soon kewart and PL! Sending virtual healing vibes to you both!

    Congrats N.Cal on the posting milestone! Impressive! Are you trying to "lap" hednic? Lol!

    For SOTD, I think I'll go with DH from a silver stem bottle. Hope everyone has a great day!

    Now for something completely different... I’m breaking my Filles en Aiguilles run with Sous Le Vent. (Although they’re both green.)

    Sad to hear of Kewart and Perfumed Lady’s woes.
