    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 Friday!

    Wearing Le baiser du dragon today and synching for foxbin's Floraliental.
    Can't wait for beer'o'clock - planning to go to a bar and listen to some metal bands in the evening, and will play in some Magic: the Gathering events during the weekend.
    I'm wishing everyone a nice weekend.

    So glad to have this one back in my collection. I forgot how good it is. I guess I'd say this is somewhat of a floriental...so much going on. Very complex as it's meant to emulate the smell of the actual Diptyque with all of the perfumes and candles on site at 34STG.

    Thanks, HoP. What an amazing procedure--lasering out the optic lens one was born with, and which has become fogged by cataracts, and replacing it with a manufactured prefocused one in 15 minutes under mild sedation. He sees brilliantly now (out of that one eye) without glasses, which he's worn since grade school. It will be weeks before he can get back to splitting wood, etc., so a bit of R&R is in order. We are very grateful for our circumstances.

    Floriental -- just one stands foremost in my mind: Boucheron.

    That sounds like a good reason to reapply for the evening. I'll wave goodbye to the working week with a scent twin.

    Hello, friends!

    Congrats on successful eye surgery to Mr. Q. and thank you, Foxbins, for picking one of my favorite "flavors" of fragrance (Florientals) for today's sync!

    This morning I had a "perfume meant-to-be" moment: I hadn't checked the sync, decided I would pick a random L'Artisan just because, and ended up with L'eau D'Ambre. "Nice," I thought, "but I think I might want something a little different... Oh, hey, I just knocked over a hefty d*cant of a different L'Artisan, so I'll go with that one instead!"

    My selection?

    L'Artisan L'eau d'Ambre Extreme.



    So, meant to be, AND in sync! Will join Quarry in Boucheron tonight. With wine.

    Fantastic Friday, everyone!

    L'Eau d'Ambre Extrême / Ambre Extrême fragrance notes: Nutmeg, Patchouli, Turkish rose.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
