    That new acquisition looks amazing, Jon. Enjoy wearing it.
    I used to have a black bottle of this beauty and enjoyed wearing it
    on special occasions.

    I have put on some Body Shop Italian Summer Fig and am hoping to
    be able to catch a few rays of sunshine in the garden today.

    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..."

    Belated happy birthday wishes, Miss Hesta!

    Lovely, JR! Your new precious reminds me of one of my perfume mentors, a woman whose son I babysat when I was a teen. She had lots of perfumes, most of which couldn’t be tried in shops in my small town, and allowed me (and friends) to play in them. Her Paloma Picasso was probably the privilege we abused most, lol! Everyone seemed to love it! That great lady really elevated some teenage sniffers.

    Thunderstorms today, then more heat wave! I’m prepared with Lime Basil & Mandarin.

    I will be spending today at a very swanky day spa with a co-worker. We have massages scheduled. The place is new, was just taken over by the Four Seasons and is drop dead gorgeous. We'll have lunch. Sauna. Jacuzzi. Maybe go to the water - the hotel is on the ocean. I can't wait!

    I'll be wearing this - from a new decant:

    Simply breathtaking bottle, Jon. I hope you got that hat to go with it. I might covet that more than I do the parfum.

    Sampling Sunday kicks off with Carner Barcelona Rose & Dragon. Hoping for more dragon than rose.

    Teardrop, so sorry to hear a family member was rude to you. Can he be barred from visitation?

    Jon, what a lovely acquisition!

    Mike, I liked the sandalwood in Unsettled quite a lot, just not enough for a purchase. Enjoy your spa day!

    ((Teardrop)) - sorry I missed your post last night about the abusive
    relative of one of your patients. How awful for you. Just try to see it as his problem
    and concentrate on the ones who appreciate your skills and care.

    I am changing to Alien body lotion for this evening.

    Miss Hesta, we miss you, birthday girl.

    Bonjour, my yummy friends.

    This morn I transplanted wetland plants in the rain.
    Then I sat out a downpour, after which I yanked invasive plants for 4 hours.
    I weeded where angels fear to tread.
    I weeded through briar, trench, and the valley of death.
    I weeded like a new Marvel super hero character.
    Then I went inside and made a list of the spots to weed next.

    Weeded. Got filthy. Showered. Now Dasein Winter'ed.
