    Morning all!

    Sheer Stella today. l'm close to finishing this bottle, & l need to do it soon, because the top notes are not as fresh as they were. l've had this 2008 version since it launched, so it's had a good long run!

    Hello everyone!
    It's getting harder to get up, and that's where I know that autumn's around the corner already. But I'll enjoy the last days of summer, sun and warm weather while I can.
    Wearing Pamplelune today.

    teardrop, that bottle of Sheer Stella has lasted you for almost 10 years! I hope it was well loved and gave you joy.

    Love Givenchy Pi, NCal. The drydown smells amazing on my husband.

    I am wearing Feminite du Bois by SL (although I would prefer the Shiseido version
    if I had any!)

    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..."

    Cabaret by Gres

    I'm not a rose fan, but this dry, woody one works for me if very lightly applied. I had always thought this was a Roucel scent, but the directory just informed me it was actually Michel Almairic. It has a rather melancholy aura that should suit the upcoming autumn weather. Cheap as chips, too.

    Belated congrats to cologne connoisseur! Happy ninth anniversary!

    Cabaret used to get quite a bit of chatter here on FFD, Cook.bot! I know we have some fans here; as I recall, our much-missed twolf had enormous love for this one. Something of a cult gem, it seems. I thought it was a Roucel, too!

    Having a sampling day, courtesy of our dear HoP. Starting off in Vanille Violette by Laurence Dumont; very pretty-sweet, powdery and girly. Would be nice on days when Insolence is just too much!

    I failed to finish the foyer painting, in spite of your good wishes, cestrum. Almost done though! Just doing some extra coats on the trim near the floor, the part that was most beat-up. Adding to the work, I now have to touch up the front door. White walls with black door=oops.

    ClockworkAlice, actually it's been 11 years! l bought it the same year that l discovered basenotes, although it was another 2 years before l actually joined. l still remember the sunny summer day when l bought this bottle, too. l sat in the park with an ice cream afterwards.

    We have a bit of a staffing crisis at work. l came home for a couple of hours, & l'm going back shortly to work the rest of the evening shift, after topping up with Sheer Stella.

    Will be a busy day at the office today, with a lot of extra work coming in, one person dropping off our team (she got promoted), a video conference today and the sheer fact that there is a Hurricane off the coast of Florida that is making everyone in the office jumpy. It's getting on my nerves and honestly I'm already tired of talking about it (and hearing people talk about it) and it's not even expected for another several days. At the moment, I am doing my best to achieve serenity and calmness in a nice healthy application of my SOTD:

    Amber Cologne by Bortnikoff Perfumes



    When I went to the spa a couple weeks ago, they had a Hair Conditioner in the mens locker room that was amazing. When I wore my SOTD I was reminded of the Conditioner. It must be the frangipani note. It's lovely.

    Happy 9th, Cologne Connoisseur, belated but sincere!

    I'll be thinking of you Teardrop. Double shifts are truly difficult.

    I'm cleaning out dresser drawers to dust and organize. I impulsively spritzed a sample of Eau de Merveilles by Hermes and wrote a pretty scathing review. Shortly afterward gracefully accepted the second-ever-in-his-whole-life fragrance related compliment from my dear son. "I like that perfume you have on."

    Bummer, man.

    Weather is near autumn-like, so we're go-go-go outside. Mr. Q and I really have to spend more time like this to recharge. First wearing of Cadjmere 18 for the cooler season.
