    Eau de Toilette

    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 Birthday Knit at Nite!

    Recovering from a very strenuous hike yesterday. 8 hours, hot (80s), lots of climbing. We went through over two gallons of water. And it was gorgeous--worth the effort.

    Rêve en Cuir for me today.

    Have a great Saturday, all!

    I feel like erecting a Maypole and doing a ribbon dance around it. It's cloudy, a little rainy, and only 78F/25C here today, with no further 90+ days in the future. But instead I'll just celebrate with the first leather of the autumn, and I'll make it a doozy.

    Vintage Cabochard parfum, plus a little EDT for good measure.

    And wishing a very happy birthday to Knit!

    Some piccies for your viewing pleasure:

    010.jpg
    026.jpg
    051.jpg
    053.jpg

    The first one is of the beach right in front of our hotel, the second has our hotel in the centre of the pic, the third shows the view from our balcony at sunset on our last evening, & the fourth needs no explanation. And yes, those are thunderclouds forming over the neighbouring island. We were able to view that storm from a safe distance for several hours that night, little knowing that further storms would disrupt our journey the following day. One storm passed right over us before we left the hotel in the morning, & one lightning strike hit less than half a mile from where l was standing on the balcony. l nearly soiled myself.

    Happy Birthday, Knit!

    Teardrop, now that's what I call a vacation spot! And you wore the perfect attire for the spirit of the place, too, you lovely thing.

    Hazel, I understand the southern half of the U.S. is getting quite the heat wave as we Northerners continue to get visited by uncustomarily frequent rain events.

    Started wearing socks this week here, too. I didn't want anything sweet on this cool, gray day, so opted for Opium.
