    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..."

    It's a sunny and warm day here, too.

    I visited my best friend yesterday and we talked long into the night. It was amazing, I always miss our night talks.
    I am super sleepy today though. I should go to bed earlier sometimes.
    Wearing Le baiser du dragon again, though I think I should have chosen something citrusy to keep my eyes more open instead.

    Good morning everyone Today I'm home from work after my cold seemed worse yesterday. It must have worked relaxing at home because I feel much better. I also suspect the glass of Cognac yesterday helped too So now I can finally smell some of my perfumes again Today I'm in the mood for either Black cashmere or Fille en Aiguilles.

    Datura Metel by Sixteen92.


    I woke up this morning to discover my first negative feedback in ages, on Ebay. I had to chuckle a bit though. The auction ended on Tuesday. The buyer hasn't even Paid for the item yet! I replied with an appropriate comment on said non-payment. Alleged buyer is a newbie with only one feedback. I suspect the alleged buyer is one of those trolls, looking to foul up people's feedback scores. Still, it is rather annoying...

    I'm convinced that if enough of us applied copious amounts of vintage No. 19 we could intimidate this hurrricane into staying offshore and safely away from us. It's worth a try today, anyway.

    That seems odd. Whenever I leave feedback for sellers on eBay, there's a message on the feedback page saying I cannot leave negative feedback until at least 7 days after the auction has closed.

    It's beyond odd. I didn't think one could even leave feedback without paying first. I'm still investigating how this happened. I can file UPI later today and so I shall.

    Apparently it IS possible to leave feedback if you haven't paid. I may be able to have the feedback removed after I open and then days later close, the unpaid Item case. The troll in question only signed up on 8/28. I wonder if they are a past bidder for whom I filed a claim against them in the past, and they are retaliating. Paranoid? Maybe. I left THEM a negative feedback, even though it can only show as "positive". F... them!

    Mike, I am with you all the way regarding Alien Man. There was something piercingly synthetic about it that just rubbed me up the wrong way. Pass.

    Jon - yeah I sort of had low expectations about that Mugler before I wore it, but I wanted to give it a full wearing anyway. Oh well.

    Thank you everyone who congratulated me on my BN Anniversary. Time flies! It doesn't seem that long ago that I joined. So many wonderful friends linked by a love of fragrance. I treasure you all.

    Ine, I hope you feel better soon.

    I'm wearing Rhubarb Ecarlate and drinking a giant latte after having an upper GI this morning. Glad it's over. Quarry, happy to hear you have a clean bill of health!
