    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..."

    It's funny how we seem to have an order of posting most mornings!
    I'm usually no.9 but up earlier on Thursday as it's my volunteering day.

    I am wearing Sylvaine Delacourte Smerelda.

    Yeah, it has a lot to do with our time zones and personal schedules. And how quickly do we report our SOTD - I know I myself sometimes report minutes after spraying, sometimes after several hours, sometimes I find time to report it after half a day

Today however ( like yesterday ) I have the day off. Today I have an appointment at the hairdresser in No 88. Have a great day all

    I'm extremely early today because I have two days leave and won't be back at work until Monday !. Glorious autumn day here which will be spent fine tuning in the garden among the seasonal colours. Efforts will be rewarded with a Belgian beer or two this afternoon

    Afternoon all!

    Jon, enjoy your time off!

    l'm late posting today, but l have a couple of days off, & like lne l'm off into town for a haircut.

    We have a mixture of sunshine & heavy showers here. l'm wearing And the World is Yours.

    Hi, folks!

    Jon, enjoy your mini-holiday, Ine, hope your headache's long gone, good luck to all with haircuts, and I have noticed a general pattern in posting, where I'm either early-ish (when I can post before going to work) or verrrrrrrrrrrrrry late (weekends or when I don't get to post until the end of my day). But I'm impressed, kewart that you've discovered a much more precise order tendency! If you're No. 9, I think you need to go out and buy some Penhaligon's LP No. 9 right away.

    Today I am inspired by hednic's choice yesterday, and sharing the house with tdem in Dior Oud Ispahan



    Wishing everyone a terrific Thursday!

    Sorry about your headache, yuck. Hopefully a new hairstyle sets you right.

    Today I'm in Frapin 1270, not complicated just pretty. This one is a crowdpleaser.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Acqua di Parma Colonia today, continuing the citrus theme I started yesterday in Chanel No. 19 Poudre.

    I’m still trying to process the news that my stepsister died this week. We haven’t been close for decades but were great friends in our youth. We ended up living vastly different lives in different areas of the country.

    Have a good day.

    Thank you LiveJazz for introducing me to this gorgeous Irish scent that I must have a full bottle of as soon as possible.

    Castaña by Cloon Keen Atelier

    All cardamom and vetiver -- not things I'd usually associate with Ireland, but it works a stunning treat.

    Self-induced headache? I do believe I have been there and done that--it makes for a miserable day anyway. I hope you are feeling back to normal now!

    I am sorry for this loss, Trilby. Decades of distance doesn't change the loss of a childhood friend, the sense of knowing she's "out there" is cut off with death. Please know you have my condolences.

    I post so late that sometimes I don't post at all. It's my time zone, sleeping very late, and tendency to scent well into my own personal evening. My mornings are not a happy time. Coffee can only do so much to drag me into a decent frame of mind as I tend to wake in a reclusive, get-the-fuck-away-from-me state. Ye olde gears don't turn like they used to!

    My cat is pregnant and I'm mad at the internet. I googled about the best time to spay a cat. Internet said 6 months. Fuck that. (yes, I just got up. I must needs to curse in every sentence--see what I mean?) My cat was pregnant at 4 1/2 months. I took her to the vet the week before for eye ointment--it's not like I was blowing her off. Well, her eyes are well and the tiny little belly I thought might be kittens worms? Kitten my ass.

    I have vicarious drama in my life that ought to have a reality camera crew capturing every surreal moment. You couldn't script the shit going on. America's jaded lowest common denominator would wrinkle their collective brows, roll their eyes, and say "Man, that would never happen."

    I'm getting popcorn and wearing Salt Caramel.
