    Hello everyone!
    Wearing Blue Silk by Agent Provocateur today. It's a great example that every scent has its own time, place, weather and time of day. I wore it yesterday in the evening and it felt nice, sensual and a bit aromatic, and at the same time lighter than the original AP, so I wanted to test it further during the day. I'm being suffocated by it now in the light and heat of the day. The piney undertones of yesterday are gone today, it just screams sweet and sensual musk right into my nose. My workplace is my boudoir now.

    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..."

    Sooooo true.

    Easyfish’s mention of Caldey Island Lavender caused me to go looking for my sample. Couldn't locate it, but in rifling through my samples, I ended up applying a little L’Ombre Dans L’Eau. I'm remembering how I do not like this as a spray, although the soap version is one of my favorite smells on earth.

    It's raining, forcing us to stop over-doing it outside. DH has been patching/reroofing a part of our roof, and, well, you know what I've been doing. We have to start acting our age(s) and occasionally take a break. Fortunately temporary rubber sheeting is keep the rain out, and we're going to give in to lying around with the remote.

    That should say "may the day serve up" above, but current BN system won't let me edit.

    Happy Birthday, Cook.bot! You're a wonderful BNer and a great lady and it's a joy to celebrate your day. I propose we all party until we look just like the pic above. Glad you're part of our wacky, fine-smelling family!

    I'm in Couture Couture by Juicy Couture (and another couture for good measure, in case the first three weren't enough). A mini of this takes care of my infrequent cravings for honeysuckle. Always seems to hit in late summer.

    Quarries, enjoy your day off! You've earned it!

    Many thanks for the greetings Jon, Alice, Inees, Quarry, tdem, PL!

    I'll continue my birthday tradition of dousing myself with vintage Eau d'Hermes, but it will have to wait 'til this evening since I have to work today and noooobody there enjoys it like I do. Philistines!

    I have only a decant of this very old crystal flacon version, so it only gets pulled out on my birthday, when it says "Nyah-nyah-nyah" to all my coppertop version bottles.

    I kinda like "make the day" though. Gives me a completely unjustified and verifiably false sense of power.
