    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..."

    Morning all!

    l have a day off, it's grey & rainy & l'm planning to catch up on some housework. Trying my sample of Dusita's Fleur de Lalita today, which is adding a welcome tropical floral vibe to my surroundings.

    Best tour yet, foxbins, Cook, HoP. The continuous give-and-take talk was amazing, especially given there were a dozen of them from age 18 to 68. Family tree relationships are tangled depending on relationships, of course, but basically, their uncles, aunts, inlaws, grandparents attended Quarry School, and two were teachers here. (Cook.bot, I ain't sharing the fun of my rock-hauling fun with anybody. The youngest of the group started calling me Guns 'n Wings when he saw my biceps and I pointed out that muscles weren't my upper arms' only characteristic. I've been pleased with my biceps, and I'm growing to be happy to own my wings.)

    I'm wearing my nighttime scent, Across Sands, today. I agree with the dates note reference, but then my perception goes to amber (like a tempered Hermes Ambre Narguile) and then black tea in the drydown. It's pretty subtle stuff and darn cozy on a chilly, gray Monday.

    Notes: dates, cinnamon, licorice, osmanthus, davana, oud, patchouli, incense.

    Sampling Flos Mortis. It's very early on and the menthol note is very strong. Looking forward to the progression. There were two tornado warnings here last night, quite unusual for Portland. Apparently one touched down about 10 miles from here, over the WA border. No damage, just cool phone footage. Today it's cool and showery.
