    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..."

    Good morning.
    I love that photo, Roberto - so impulsive (like the name of the scent.)

    We are off to Liverpool airport shortly to catch a flight to Nice. The weather
    looks set to be in the mid twenties for most of the fortnight we are there so I
    am looking forward to some late summer sunshine and relaxation.

    I am taking decants of "O" d'Azur and Cristobal with me in hand luggage and
    am expecting some Bastide samples to be in our letterbox, when we arrive.
    I also left some small bottles out there from last time we stayed.

    My scent for travelling will be Escapade en Mediterranee by Rochas because of the name
    and the fact that it isn't too "in your face."

    Hello, all!

    Happy travels, kewart!

    Hope everyone's well. Today is feeling very autumnal here, especially up on t'hill where it was blowing an absolute gale this morning. It feels like the seasons have switched and I've moved into my autumn fragrances, so I thought I'd mark this with a quick post. I'm wearing Psychedelique, by Jovoy.

    And - at the risk of insensitivity - what are the black ribbons for?

    Be well, all. Love, MHJ.

    Wearing one of the oldest...if not...the oldest in my collection by years that I've owned myself today. Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio...bottle is easily 10+ years old.

    Seconding cazaubon's sentiments; there's no better way of stating it. Perfectly done, caz.

    I'm running into multiple coat issues here as well, Trilby Lark! I just knew my bedroom and foyer paint projects had been too easy, lol. Time to pay the piper, I guess.

    Wanted to sample again today but it's soo hot and muggy. Taking the easy route in apres la Mousson instead.

    Bon voyage, kewart! I hope we get to see pics again when you return!

    18 years passed - already. Seems like yesterday. I doubt there are many Americans who cannot precisely recall where they were, during that horrible day...

    Bleu de Chanel EDP. Definitely adds a woody amber that's JUST on the acceptable side of keening to me.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Dior Oud Ispahan again.

    Roberto’s photo and Kewart’s travel plans put me in a very good mood this morning or, perhaps, reinforced the mood I was already in. I had a restful nights sleep and there’s a very pleasant breeze coming through the window.

    The thought of September 11 makes me even more grateful for the little pleasures of life. Every year I commemorate the event by listening to the air traffic controller recordings. They didn’t know what was going on at first and then reports started coming in from other planes. There were so many victims and heroes that day.
    October Picks

    Guerlains: Heritage, L’Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Mon Guerlain
    Muglers: Alien, Angel, Angel Muse, Aura, Cuir Impertinent
    Roses: Black Aoud, Lady Vengeance, Oud Ispahan

    Kewart, you're the envy of all here. We expect more lovely photos, for sure.

    Nice to see you, 30 Roses. Yes, we all feel the weight of this date.

    I'm feeling rosey in layers of Rose Flash and Rose de Mai.

    I only stepped out to empty the compost bucket this morn, but got swept up in stuff, drenched myself in sweat (summer heat has returned), and caused poor DH to assist me in a way that stirred up a hive of ground bees. My poor sweetie got stung seven times.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.
