    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..."

    Hi, folks - I'm up late, so posting very early!

    Trilby, belated but heartfelt condolences on the loss of your stepsister. May her memory be a blessing.

    Thanks to Easyfish's SOTD earlier this week from a perfumer I've now decided I love (Oriza L. Legrand), and in honor of our dear Shycat's kitty woes (please PM me if you might be willing/able to ship a kitten to my son in Philadelphia - I'm woefully allergic but love cats, and he is woefully allergic to many things *other* than cats and loves kitties, too...), never mind that salted caramel with extra vanilla is one of my favorite scents EVER, I just bought a small bottle of Salt Caramel blind and a sample of Oriza L. Legrand's Relique D'Amour.

    Random pull from my last Luckyscent sample pack will be my SOTD - Alghabra Parfums Labyrinth of Spices. Oh, I'm going to be smelling this one in my dreams, and throughout Saturday, I expect. Even though I'm not an anise fan, I can appreciate it as part of a greater whole. Yum...



    Labyrinth of Spices fragrance notes: Turkish coffee, Pineapple, Galbanum, Tobacco, Clove, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Anise, Lavender, Tonka, Cardamom, Amber, Sandalwood, Cedar, Vetiver, Oakmoss, Woody musk.
    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

    Good morning, folks!

    Was busy ordering from Caron (phoning the boutique) last night as En Avion must be part of my perfume life.

    Today I am in Coup de Fouet, another one that will be butchered in a few days, but luckily I do have sufficient stocks.

    Enjoy your weekend

    Happy Saturday everyone!

    And happy BN-birthday, Shycat! 14 years is a lot.
    I am also sad and angry about your cat situation. Pregnant at 4 months! Poor teenage cat-mom and poor cat-grandma soon-to-be. I know vets actually do cat abortions and do spay pregnant cats (that includes the abortion, too), but this may or may not be the sort of thing you'd like to do.

    More hugs for Trilby.

    I'm having a cosy Saturday at home in Pink Sugar today. Maybe I'll go out somewhere in the evening, maybe not - who knows.

    ComDiva, I found the house of Oriza L. Legrand to be interesting as heck (but not particularly wearable). Rêve d'Ossian was the most enigmatic incense scent I've ever tried - like most people I thought it was great, but evidently it's quite polarizing. The bad reviews of it are hilarious.

    Happy BN-iversary, Shycat!

    Wearing Cashmere Musk by Ava Luxe this evening, from my sample. Anyone who loved Avon's Soft Musk back in the day would enjoy this one, l think. ln fact l think Shycat would like this, in view of her penchant for powder.

    Hey, Shy Class of 2005! Tdem and I are members, too.

    At the mention of green chypres, I applied J-L Scherrer to my shirt, but I needed a shade more sweetness, so I put some Hanae Mori on my wrists. Ennhhh. Tolerable, but I shan't repeat this.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    An extra chorus rehearsal this morning, then I came home, had some chocolate cake, and put on Eau des Merveilles. Now I'm going to take a nap.

    Congrats on your Basenotes Anniversary, Shycat!
