    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..."

    Hello!

    ineespenes, have a nice trip to Stavanger!

    teardrop, whoa, doing stuff since early morning! It was smart of you not to wait until the weather gets hot.

    I have lots and lots of work to do this week, seems there will be quite a lot of staying up late. Wearing Frescaessenza to soothe and freshen up my mind!

    Hello all,

    Prada No. 4 Fleur d‘Oranger, which I love so much in summer. Have been wearing it quite a bit this year, but now I really do look forward to the darker, heavier stuff (like my Carons) already.

    Have a good day!

    Hello and best to everyone. Laura Biagiotti Venezia for me today. This is the 2011 reissue (not the version from Long Lost Perfumes) and it is surprisingly faithful to the original formula from 1992.

    Hi, all -

    Spritz and dash for me - Sixteen92's Moirai, from a sample garnered during the Chicago Meet-Up.

    Hope everyone has (or is having) a terrific Tuesday!

    Moirai fragrance notes: Black fig, Black tea leaf, Red tea leaf, Ginger, Coconut milk, Papyrus.
    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

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing L’Air du Desert Marocain today. It has now crept up to third place on my All Time Most Worn list, right behind Coromandel and Cristalle.

    Have a lovely day.

    Ooooo, exciting. Photo (if you find something)?

    Bushwacking morning, fighting vines especially, then transplanted some purple love grass. I haven't taken a pic of the stuff, but check out the photos at this link. Don'tcha just love love grass?

    I smell like a Cinnabon and Starbucks in Bond New Haarlem. I'm using up the decant I bought before starting my pristine bottle because the decant is a smidge off, no doubt from having been decanted.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Belated birthday wishes to Cook.bot!

    Q, the love grass will look lovely, I’m sure!
    PL, hoping the paint job went well and that you are already enjoying cold libations in honor of the foyer.
    The two of you and teardrop, too, being so productive-- makes me tired just thinking about it! We *do* need a BYOI BN party! Sounds perfect!!! Here’s my happy dance at the thought:
