    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..."

    Mr. Kewart didn't get his BMW yet so the search continues.

    I am wearing YSL Paris and waiting for a

    Hope you all have a good day.

    Hi, folks!

    Spritz and dash for two days for me - Yesterday, smelling great in Roja Dove Diaghilev, and today in a different but also classy vibe in Prada Luna Rosa.




    Terrific Tuesday, everyone!

    Who has two thumbs and deserves all the good that's coming her way?
    This girl.
    Congrats, teardrop.

    I rarely repeat, but will do so today with the soft, leathery, suedey VIP Room. I'm not noticing the pineapple note as much as usual, but am picking up a mellow tonka vibe right now. So happy the cooler weather makes a broader range of my wardrobe appealing again.

    A bit of frost visited us last night. Fortunately I'd picked all the tomatoes already. Time to pull up the plants from the kitchen garden and drain the rain barrels. Mr. Q is cleared for heavy lifting and has been cutting and splitting firewood. It won't be long before it's time to set out the snowplow markers. (For our non-northern friends here: These are red sticks, shoved in the ground, that show above the snow line so plow drivers know where driveway edges lie.) And so the seasons roll on.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Oh my goodness, teardrop!! How wonderful! Many of us have been waiting for this right along with you! Much deserved and hard-earned. Happy the spot is going to someone who takes her education so seriously. Congratulations!

    Belated happy birthday wishes, Starblind!

    Trying decants. Today it's Furiosa Fendi. Caught something almost Samsara-like in the air, still wondering if it was from me or no.
    I'm very curious about Chanel no.46 as well.

    This sounds interesting... Does it smell anything like Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, only with a Tonka twist?

    PerfumedLady - Yes it was a yummy lunch, just a bit pricey . Oh well, have to do things like that once in a while.

    Teardrop - I am so happy for you!!! Congrats!!! What a lovely day to start a work week after a great vacation!

    Starblind - Belated happy Birthday! Vintage Chanel No 19, is the way to do it! I am rather partial to it myself .

    HouseOfPhlegethon - You smelled great yesterday in Coeur de Vetiver Sacre!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Guerlain Heritage today. I returned home from Montreal and Quebec City last night. They were two fantastic places to visit and I will miss hearing French language and eating French pastries and food. I bought a cookbook called The Boreal Pantry that uses foraged foods and game from the northern forests. So inspiring as I regain my interest in cooking during the cooler seasons.

    Quarry, I relate to your signature line. Personally, I dislike anything resembling my old job. After a long career in arts administration, I even avoided any museum visits during my trip. Physical labor and solitude are my new joys!

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.
