    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..."

    Good morning fragrant ones! I am at peace.

    Mr. Cat's mother died yesterday morning. It's been an intense couple of weeks assisting Mr.C in the Hospice care. Hard for me to explain cor pulmonale, congestive heart failure, COPD, mitral valve insufficency, morphine, lorazepam, and atropine in terms that didn't freak him out. I did my best and gave my all, eventually hushed so many pointless questions and summed it up as "stretched and worn out."

    She passed away in her sleep this way, at home and surrounded by her family and friends. Her favorite fragrance was Chanel No. 5 so I'm wearing it today in her honor.

    Many condolences to you, Shycat, and many blessings on you for being there to support your friend.

    It looks like we're getting a little heat break with a rainstorm and temperatures finally below 90F today, so I think I'll risk a slightly heavy hitter today:

    (((Shycat))) so sorry to hear the sad news. Condolences to you and Mr. C. He and his mother were lucky to have your kindness, care and wisdom during this hard time.

    Jon, you always have the cutest pics and gifs!
    Teardrop, hope you have a wonderful day off tomorrow. Sounds like you deserve it!!!
    And PL, I didn’t get a chance to comment on your lovely pics yesterday, but now I want to go float on a lake with you in addition to doing some crazy booze fueled gardening. LOL!

    Today I have AE on top of a coconut milk lotion, which sounds strange but worked really nicely. The lotion scent is fading and I actually miss it! hehehe

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Forgot to post yesterday - I wore the last of my Concrete by Comme des Garcons decant. All gone now. I think that I will probably get that Cartier L'Heure fragrance that is going to *replace* this same minimal sandalwood in my Wardrobe. Let's see. I really did enjoy this one though - the way the ftuit, concrete and sandalwood notes all clash together is brilliant.

    Today I am scentless...but I think I am going to wear something weird (I'm in one of those moods) so it will probably be something from BeauFort or The Zoo. Stay tuned.

    Condolences to Shycat and Mr Shycat,
    It's been 4 years this month that my own dad died at home under hospice care- it was just me there at the time. I've been kind of sad remembering this experience recently. On a happier note, it's my 3 year anniversary today of having surgery for my uterine cancer. So grateful to say, I'm still cancer free!

    Yesterday was Wind Song by Prince M......... for the sync.
    Today is an unplanned scent. Just reached into the drawer and blindly grabbed a random bottle. Yardley of London Geranium edt
    Currently wearing: Joop! Femme by Joop!
