    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!

    Despite the chilly mornings, we're still getting some lovely warm sunny days here. Matching the summery mood with Ensoleille Moi for my late shift today.

    Hello everyone!

    It is getting harder and harder to wake up at mornings - I keep snoozing my alarm every morning despite going to bed earlier than is usual for me.
    That is how I know the autumn has come.

    Wearing Frescaessenza by L'Erbolario today, with a touch of Pink Grapefruit by The Body Shop on top. I often repeat this combination.

    Hi, everyone!

    I'm back from Italy, *almost* back in this time zone, and am doing a spritz and dash today - Giving a test run of Penhaligon's Cairo.



    On first sniff it smells a bit like Malabah's younger sister. I'll need to do a side-by-side comparison soon.

    Wonderful Wednesday to all!

    Cairo fragrance notes: Damask rose, Saffron, Incense, Patchouli, Vanilla.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Just the tiniest hint of cooling this morning (73F, 23C and only 50% humidity) makes me think I can risk a richer green:

    Vintage Safari by Lauren (1980), in EDC format. I love my old cologne splash bottle, which has a crystal stopper like a parfum.

    Hello and best to everyone. Welcome back, ComDiva! I adore Italy, where did you go/what did you see?

    SOTD is Caron Aimez-Moi. I recently learned that Dominique Ropion was the nose for this unusual, gorgeous violet perfume.

    We too, have the slight cooling this morning, it's 80 in F, though it will get hot as usual mid day it's low 90s so more normal late summer, not the globally warmed peak of summer, and we should get rain tonight

    Sonoma Scent Studio To Dream for today.

    Happy birthday to Ine-Pop!

    Thank you, Zilpha, teardrop, Trilby, JR, Shy, cazaubon, CwAlice, Mike, N.Cal, HoP, Ineespenes, PL, Hazel, foxbins, and CuddleCat for kind words about the development of this place I love. Did I forget to thank anyone? Hope not. It's a treat to share this architecture and landscape with you.

    Yes, Larimar, gentle friend. We sure could use a Star Trek transporter.

    For two days I've been cutting and dabbing woody invasives with little attention to fragrance except to fantasize about our Oct. 12 Merz meet-up.

    Lovely Le Labo Lys for this afternoon.

    Cooler here today - barely reached 72.

    IMG_9262.jpg

    Yesterday, got pics of one of my favorite, out-of-the-way railroad bridges. Still being used. Leaves not turning yet, up north, in PA.

    Now though, I am catching my husbands cold. I feel the pines and needles in my nose, stating its inevitable arrival. Sampling this afternoon, while I still can.



    Hope your Pop has a good B-day, Ine!
