    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..."

    Good morning everyone After all the snow lately it basically looks like a Christmas-card outside. I was in the mood for something resinous so I'm continuing with yesterday's synch in Le baiser du dragon. Have a great day everyone

    Good morning all !. The predicted gales and rain have yet to hit us so will be venturing out early for a caffeine fix before the rugby world cup final. Reveling in the delights of a new acquisition this morning. This should mingle rather nicely with the aroma of coffee


    Gres Cabochard (vintage parfum).

    Hello everyone!

    Jon, I hope you'll be enjoying your new acquisition very much!

    Ineespenes, yay for Le baiser du Dragon! It's amazing in chilly weather. I can already imagine the postcard you're living in right now! I remember you felt under the weather a few days ago - I hope you're feeling good right now.

    I'm visiting my aunt this weekend - together with my parents and my cousin, her daughter. Now drinking coffee after a late breakfast, there will be lots of yardwork afterwards. My scent of this weekend is Frescaessenza by L'Erbolario.
    Have a nice weekend!

    Started my Saturday morning (as I usually do) with the newspaper, a cappuccino and Eau Sauvage Dior(as this has become sort of a ritual it now gives my an ultimate relax weekend vibe).

    And after my shower I will go for Odalisque from Nicolaï. A stunning melancholic chypre that suits this windy/rainy autumn day.

    Morning all!

    Enjoyed a lazy start to the day after a very hectic shift yesterday. We woke up to howling gales & rain here; it's calmed down a little now, but the weather is definitely heading your way, Jon! Congrats on your new treasure!

    We're pretending it's Sunday & heading out for lunch today, because tomorrow's Rangers game would have cut proceedings short. l'm wearing Alien, layered with the body cream.

    It makes my heart happy that Jon's obviously enjoying this day. I'd like to assist (or entirely replace) CwAlice's family for the yardwork. I'm not myself when sitting in the house day after day. Just looking at next year's project list this morn uplifted me for a minute. Tomorrow will be a fun change of pace though, taking the Hiawatha to have brunch with ComDiva! Plan to sniff out CdG Sugi and two coffee-driven frags, Replica Coffee Break and Kilian Memento Mori, at Nordstrom (the Chicago store is more broadly stocked than our local one).

    Until then, I'm coffee'd in New Haarlem.

    Hello and best to everyone. Congratulations and enjoy your beautiful new acquisition, Jon!

    As it’s All Souls Day, I’m going to stop into church at some point today. I’m more a crusty old heathen at this point but I do want to light a candle in remembrance of all those I’ve loved and lost. Wearing Versace Crystal Noir eau de parfum, a gingery, prickly sandalwood eventually joined by (and smoothed out with) a soft floral. Very nice.

    Hello all,

    I am reclining in a beach chair on the beautiful Pacific at the moment. This morning I sprayed on some of my son-in-law’s Acqua di Gio and I’m enjoying it very much. What’s happening to me? I’m digging the guy stuff lately. My son informed me he used up all the Aventus I gave to him. He’s a signature fragrance kinda guy so it looks like a new bottle is on the horizon.

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

    I just spent 4 hours in a car with someone whose only topics of conversation were 1) how horrible her job is, and 2) how horrible her husband is. Now I just want to crawl under the quilts, drenched in the comforting spice and woods of Parfum Sacre.
