    After several busy days, I will be enjoying a quiet day at home. I'm wearing Eau Rose by Diptyque.

    Been catching up on Basenotes news, sending virtual hugs to all that need one!

    Wishing you all a good day!

    Morning all, & a Happy BN-iversary, dear CuddleCat!

    Welcome back, Larimar!

    Yesterday's trip to the hair salon was very therapeutic for me. l got a lovely head massage, & set the world to rights chatting with my stylist, who's one of my oldest friends. My head is now sorted in every way possible!

    l'm off back to work in Carnal Flower.

    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..."

    Those head massages sound very therapeutic and relaxing. I took the time to watch a few head massage ASMR videos, I can't help but want to get a head massage myself.

    Welcome back, Larimar.
    Head massages certainly can put the world to rights, Teardrop.

    I am sharing houses with easyfish htis morning and wearing an old favourite - Ivoire.
    This goes on all perfumey (if you know what I mean) but settles down to a gorgeous, green,
    extremely sniffable beauty.

    Larimar - so nice to see you around. I forgot you wear Racine one of the MPG's I never have given a full wearing to. Enjoy!

    teardrop - so happy to hear you're feeling (and looking) good now. Hugs

    Good morning everyone and Happy BN-anniversary to Cuddlecat Today I have the day off and I plan to spend the day on the balcony reading a book Sotd is the gorgeous Winter palace. The teanote in the topnotes is addictive and the orangy, benzoin drydown reminds me slightly of Mandarine mandarin. I might need a large decant of this, because my sample is half empty already Have a great day all

    Easyfish just reminded me that I haven't worn my Balmain de Balmain for a at least a couple of years, so I'll break that out for a quiet day at home. Can never have enough dry green chypres.

    These days it smells more pour homme than pour femme. Mimifroufrou gives an excellent synopsis of its retro qualitites:

    My Spidey sense has been anticipating you for 2 or 3 days, L. Hope that your process of getting back in the swing of things includes posting with us all the time.
    Yahoo, CuddleCat!
    Uuuuhhhh ... scalp massage. Had a friend in cosmetology school who had homework of practicing scalp massages. Puh-lease! Teardrop, your skilled friend sounds way more effective than a conventional therapist. Mike's hotel spa day sounded therapeutic, too. (Originally typed that as "Mike's spay day" -- both a confusing and unrelaxing thought.)
    I listened to half of a podcast about YSL Opium while lying in bed this morn, so, although I don't usually scent myself before heading outside, I had to take a little hit of Opium.

    l've had a much better day at work today, & got let out early to pay me back for staying late on Saturday.

    Mr teardrop is working late, so l've grabbed the opportunity to try Creed Scent of Oger, part of the Rogue Sample Pass. lt's perfectly refreshing on this warm, sunny afternoon.

    Take my hat and call me Louis, is it humid! I had to surrender after just two truckloads of stone. By Friday the high is predicted to be only 68F/20C, so a person can get out and do things.

    Chilling now in Fragonard Rose de Mai and Tauerville Rose Flash.
