    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..."

    As for my own scent of the day, it's Heritage edt by Guerlain

    Good morning, all! We went a-traveling last week and I missed you! Had a nice time visiting in-laws in Florida and going to the beach. Had a disappointing time at the Disney World parks and resorts, with the exception of La Signature at EPCOT. We had exceptional Guerlain SAs this time, and I remembered to take pics! It's so hard to get a clear shot in there, so I have a trio of shots to try to get across just how teensy-tiny this place is. Truly a miniature boutique! But, they have absolutely everything in there; it's jam packed. I have yet to ask for something they can't show me.

    And the wall that isn't visible in the first two:
    2019-10-13_20-09-26_559.jpg

    And that's all there is to it! It gets very full of people but we were smart and went at night this time. That's when most other EPCOT visitors are busy drinking their way around the world. By the time we left, I had the whole staff to myself and they were great fun.

    Still catching up on everything I missed; hope everyone is doing well! In one of my purchases today, Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Intense. Was too hot for my northern blood to wear any orientals while away but can't leave this baby alone now that I'm in chilly Indiana.

    Will post an ocean pic next time for our beach lovers. Have a great day!

    PL, why was DW a disappointment, aside from the never-dull perfume shopping? Did you smell the new Embruns d'Ylang? I didn't think much of that.

    Good day, all! I'm back from a fishing trip to Apalachicola Florida, and in honor of Florida and tropical storm Nestor (which we were caught in) I'm wearing Paris*LA by A Lab On Fire. There is a key lime note in it and a slightly tropical definitely gourmand vibe. Since we couldn't fish last Saturday we sat around and enjoyed pralines and chess bars and other southern treats, pizza (no fish to eat!), and multiple games of Jenga. Sunday we were able to fish, and enjoyed fresh red fish for dinner.

    Welcome back, PerfumedLady & Hazel!

    Thanks for the pics PLady, looking forward to the beachy ones!

    Hazel, glad you survived the storm!

    Giving a second wearing to my sample of Morah this evening. l'm sure Mr teardrop would hate this one as it's rather filthy, but luckily for him he's away for work tonight.

    Thanks for the updates Hazel5 & Perfumedlady. Hazel, my dad and I were supposed to go fishing the weekend before the on the just passed. We go up to Lake St. Clair just outside of Detroit and fish for muskie with a guide. This year we weren't able to attend due to my dad's hip surgery. Hearing about your trip all things considered...still seems to be as they say...a crappy day fishing beats any day in the office. My father-in-law plans to move to the panhandle of Florida sometime within the next 5 years or so...I can't wait to get down there for some fishing. Perfumedlady, what a cool little boutique.

    The house is cleaned, fresh sheets are on the bed, and tonight the quilt goes in the duvet cover. I took a super shower with two lit candles. Lunch was all from the land: venison, tomatoes, and squash (technically the butter's from Ireland). I elected to spray Opium AND Bel Respiro AND Mona de Orio Nuit Noire -- each of which is character packed, but none of them conflict, and I simply smell like I've been sampling at the highest caliber boutique. I smell great, and life is good.
