    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..."

    Hello everyone and happy Friday to me! (All Hallows Day is All Saints Day/The day of the dead in Lithuania, thus a national holiday and a day off. The day of the dead here is nothing like Halloween or Dia Los Muertos, it's a quiet day when everyone thinks about their dead, visits cemeteries and burns candles for their dead relatives, friends and ancestors. The cemeteries are so beautiful that night, all lit in thousands of candles. Excuse me for my rambling.

    The sotd is NR For Her.

    And ineespenes, get well soon!

    Good morning!

    I am wearing The Sanctuary Classic edt layered
    with the body lotion. Nothing fancy or expensive
    just easy to wear and rather lovely.

    Keep safe from those dreadful fires.

    Enjoy Halloween to those that celebrate. I don't
    go in for it much myself but keep sweets available for
    any visiting children.

    Morning all, & Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it!

    There was never a tradition of celebrating Halloween when l was growing up, but l have one small tradition of my own since joining BN, which is that l wear Ghost every year on this day. lt's not just that the name is appropriate, it's also the fact that this cosy, rosy incense works perfectly on a grey, damp, autumn day like today.

    Feel better soon, lne!

    Hello, everyone-

    I'm glad the California fires seem to be abating a bit, but wish we our environment were in a less precarious position. Enjoy your holiday ClockworkAlice, and I loved the pics of your daughter, Quarry. I echo all who've noted the fantastic resemblance between the two of you!

    Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it. My nod to the day is a pair of jack-o-lantern earrings with a little button you can push to turn on the blinking LED lights inside. Festive, and can be helpful when trick-or-treating in the dark.

    Giving a test run to Penhaligon's Cairo today. Oh, I like this one. A sweet spicy scent I think one could wear in warm or cold weather. Nice!



    A thrilling Halloween Thursday to all!

    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Happy Halloween! I've gone macabre-themed for daytime, in Killer Rose by 4160 Tuesdays (thank you for the generous supply, HOP!). It may have a scary name but if I love it (and I do), you know it can't be a very scary scent. One of the finest works by this house, and I'd put it up there with the all-time great roses, as well. Will probably have some Un Bois Vanille later with my Reese's pumpkins.

    No costume here, though I was a die-hard even into my twenties (did NOT trick or treat as a big kid, that's just wrong!). Loved Halloween parties and won prizes for my costumes fairly often. My fave was Alice in Wonderland, complete with pinafore made by my grandma, who copied it from the movies. I was 20 when I wore this. These days though, my feeling on costumes is that with Christmas coming, who needs any extra work? Just gimme the dang Reese's.

    I do, however, want to follow ComDiva around all day, pressing the button on her earrings!

    Have a good day, all!

    Happy to share my funny-face kid with you, my dears. I'm so entertained by those expressions. Thank you, CwAlice, HoP, PL, Trilby, Jon, and ComDiva. Robin, LOL-- she's really a 50/50 kid. Happily she got her dad's big brown eyes and trim legs.

    Trilby, I can imagine you've been witness to dramatic changes across the landscapes you've known over the years. We've been on a decades-long tirade to reshape land use, testing the limits to which resources can be pushed.

    Safe travels, cazaubon.

    CwAlice, I like learning about different traditions and what makes us similar and different. Please continue sharing such things.

    There was a Molton Brown Flora Luminaire paper sample in Neiman Marcus' latest mailing, which I've been sniffing. So far it strikes me as wear-worthy but not buy-worthy. It smells like sweet almonds on paper, about as sugary as Hanae Mori without the strawberry note. Officially the notes are attributed to tiare flower, mandarin and pear. This spurred me to apply Hanae Mori for the morning.

    Happy ... Halloween? Um, it's more like New Year's Eve here -- snow globe and snow plows.

    Happy Halloween, to all who celebrate. I don't, really, but have step-grandchildren who are looking forward to seeing me in my skeleton costume. I can't let them down!

    Enjoying I Saw Goody Proctor With The Devil by Sixteen92. From a sample. Appropriate for today. Later I'll wear their offering Black Sugar.

    Hello all,

    My Halloween costume consists of my annual wearing of an old Betsy Johnson spider necklace and Montale Black Aoud perfume. The rose of the Black Aoud has a dark Gothic quality about it, making it a good choice for the occasion.

    Regarding the California fires, I can smell smoke in the air coming through the window.

    Have a good day.
