    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 and congrats to N. Cal on 41 Ks It's getting really dark now and it's hard to get up. Soon the sun will go under the horizon for about 2 months. Sotd is Infusion d'iris for work. Later I will switch to something else. I have been invited to dinner at a friend's place. Have a nice day all

    Ineespenes, stay strong. As much as the polar summer is awesome, the polar night seems scary. And sometimes I complain that we don't get to see much sun in winter - at least it rises here for five-six hours or so!
    Have fun with friends later!

    I'm also feeling sleepy in Habanita.

    A Scandinavian winter sounds quite an ordeal.

    SOTD is Narciso Poudrée. I really should wear this one more often, it’s just lovely.

    Hi, all, many congrats N.Cal on breaking the runner's tape at 41K (!!!), sending healing vibes (and shoes with extra traction) to dear Trilby, and a recommendation for a Happy Light (https://verilux.com/collections/happ...y-lamps-boxes) to ineespenes and anyone else who tends to get laid low by a lack of sunlight.

    SOTD for me is yet another sample, Tom Ford Lavender Extreme



    Straightforward, nicely constructed and pleasant. Fitting the bill for me today.

    Speaking of which, wishing everyone a pleasantly thrilling Thursday!

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

    Big-time respect for our more northerly BNers. You're tough stuff to live for months in nighttime conditions. A friend just informed me that her partner died Monday night. Grieving, as one heads into the dark season, seems especially weighty. Poor dear. I read an article this week that said 35 minutes of activity outside can stave off seasonal affective disorder. I'm rolling my eyes over the exact science of this proclamation, but I still sanction the notion. After I post here, Day-Z Buck Buck and I will go out in the sunshine and snow to play frisbee. I'll be huffing vintage Opium as it sneaks above my coat collar.

    Coriander, plum, citruses, mandarin orange, pepper, jasmine, cloves, West Indian bay and bergamot; carnation, sandalwood, patchouli, cinnamon, orris root, peach, lily-of-the-valley and rose; labdanum, tolu balsam, sandalwood, opoponax, musk, vanilla, benzoin, vetiver, incense, cedar, myrrh, castoreum, amber.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Guerlain Heritage today. Thank you for your well wishes regarding injuries resulting from my fall Tuesday night. My face and mouth are scraped and bruised but healing. The pain and extreme swelling in my right knee are a little better this morning. The doctor said I was lucky that nothing was broken. When not sleeping during the day, I’m watching The Kindness Diaries on television. I attended a talk by Leon Logothetis, the show’s creator, yesterday. I’m inspired to more actively connect with others now!

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

    Poor Trilby! Hope you heal up quickly. Congrats to N.Cal on 41k!

    Ineespenes, I have so much sympathy for you dealing with the darkness. You are used to it, but it is still so difficult. I get SAD and 35 minutes a day outside when there is no sun is no help at all. I get intense anxiety and depression. This is why I spend the winters in San Diego.

    Today I’m trying out a sample of Montale Chocolate Greedy.

    Q, my condolences to your friend.

    lt's been a lovely sunny autumn day here today. At lunchtime l went for a walk on campus & discovered a hidden gem of a garden with a stream running through it, lily ponds, willow trees & lots of beautiful autumn colour. lf only l had a camera phone! lt reaffirmed my belief in the power of sunlight to lift moods though, & l can't even imagine living through two months without it.

    Trilby, I am so happy you were not seriously injured. But scary anyway. Glad you are taking it easy.

    I am full of energy this morning, two loads of washing done and the house cleaned. Putting up new curtains in the guest room next and wearing Bombay Bling.

    Thanks for the comments everyone The darkseason is ok if you manage to see the little daylight that is. It's actually quite beautiful light at that time of year Will try to post picturs of the sky one time. Now off to the dinner with my friend. She serves Jamaican goat -curry ( but with lamb, not goat I suspect...easier to come by ) SotE is Santal majuscule.
