    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..."

    Happy birthday, sjg!!!

    Wearing Rabarbaro by L'Erbolario. It's a lovely tea scent that I bought a 15 ml travel spray this spring to wear during summer and during the summer trips. The summer is already over, and I still have 1/3 of the bottle left, so I am trying to finish it. I'm thinking I should focus on some of my emptier or smaller bottles, as I'm starting to feel like I have a bit too much already. I don't want to feel self- conscious when people visit me and see all these bottles (and I don't even have everything on display, only the frequently used ones!). And I want to finish up the things I like and think of the ways to get rid of things I don't even really like to have more space for the fragrances I love. This will take time, maybe a long time, but at least I know what to do.

    Yesterday's wearing of Azuree made me think I'm turning into a perfume wimp. Two small sprays to the forearms were choking me out after two hours. I had to rub some of it off with a tissue to calm it down. And 12 hours later it was still a pretty beastly green leather with massive presence. Whew. And I used to wear this stuff on the regular.

    Today I'm test-wearing something outside the lineup but keeping within the green theme: Mugler's newish (2017, and it already has flankers!) green EDP, 'Aura'. I can tell it's going to take multiple wearings to get a handle on it. It's outrageously synthetic, but we're all used to that Mugler tradition by now and it's not a deal-breaker for me. What might break the deal is its sweetness, courtesy of an overdose of vanilla, and a strong mint accord in the mid phase. Darvant called it "icy and silvan", which is pretty apt.

    We'll see. It helps that I love the bottle, which looks like an icon from an extra-terrestrial religion.

    I'm wearing Cuir Cannage this cloudy, drizzly morning, the product of going halfsies on a 200ml bottle with ExtremeK in Chicago. This and Chanel CdR are probably my favorite leathers. Knize Ten was too much for me, and I have to be in a special mood for Cuir Mauresque. Other leathers I've tried are too light.

    Happy Birthday, sjg!

    I adore Aura. It just seems to meld with my skin and it’s one of the few that garners compliments. I know it has vanilla but it doesn’t register with me when I wear it. Maybe I’m a Mugler extraterrestrial?

    I’m wearing Diptyque Eau Lente today. It’s pleasant (not high praise from me).

    Have a good day.

    Do you wear EDP or EDT, Trilby? This is so loud on me, I'm wondering if I should have gone for the EDT.

    We were busy enough, then ... got an email from someone whose grandfather and uncles attended our schoolhouse-home. She said the family was gathering in Wisconsin for a reunion, and asked whether they could tour our old school? She has letters and photos related to the school to share with us. Our "museum" is not pulled together yet, but trying to set up a few things by Sunday afternoon.

    Simple and sweet, Le Labo Lys.

    I had to look at the box: it’s EDP. Yes, it’s loud but that seems congruent with my personality (dependent on mood). My other loud green is Robert Piguet Futur. Bois d’Orage is on my Want List. You get the picture?
