    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..."

    Teardrop, I trust your Greek holiday plans are independent of Thomas Cook. For those who haven't seen the news, this travel agency shuttered, leaving tens of thousands of vacationers stranded across the globe. Can you imagine?

    In other sad travel news, Amtrak is phasing out its traditional dining car. I may never travel again. Prepackaged meals don't contribute to the charm of odyssey by rail.

    Today I'm traveling no farther than the grocery store. It's comfortably cool and brisk -- perfect New Haarlem weather. Does anyone know Sunmaid cinnamon raisin bread? Toast that, spread a melting pad of butter over it, and smell the almost-burnt edge of the toast. That's NH for me. There could be a cup of dark roast in the background, but it's the burnt cinnamon toast that's suckering me in.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Yes Q, thankfully Thomas Cook are not involved at all in our travel plans, & l feel for all those poor folks being affected by their demise, not least the thousands who are losing their jobs.

    Hi all,

    St. Clair Casablanca today - someone mentioned this reminded them of Sonoma Scent Studio, but on me it's a sister to Prowl by Neil Morris, but without the grape koolaid beginning, and slightly less round overall. Made me think of Slumberhouse, SSS, Neil Morris, perhaps we are getting an American aesthetic in perfume, and if so I am 100% behind this. These sort of vintage, heavy heavy scents are heavenly. Need a light hand in application but that just feels like I'm getting a good deal.

    Very interesting idea. There are enough North American indie houses now that we should probably start a discussion of whether we see any commonalities among them. January Scent Project, Imaginary Authors, Rogue, Slumberhouse, Neil Morris, Zoologist... I think I could be convinced that there are some threads of kinship there.

    Quarry, Sunmaid cinnamon raisin bread is a staple in our house! Sometimes just with butter, sometimes sprinkled with cinnamon sugar as well for an extra sweet boost.

    What’s the world coming to? Uncivilized, I say!

    I’m wearing Dior Oud Ispahan today. Yesterday, Mr. Lark and I took a wonderful drive on Ortega Highway through the coastal mountains, with lots of rugged terrain and dramatic rock formations. I’m still on a high from that experience.

    Have a good day.
