    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..."

    Roma.

    I have just been watching the news about the flooding in Venice.
    Such a shame that this beautiful place is suffering from even
    more water damage.
    Our friends have booked to go out there tomorrow for a three night break
    so it will be interesting to hear how they get on. They have had to repack
    and are trying to fit wellies into their hand luggage!

    Ouch, kewart. I'm sad for more water damage in Venice. I've been there once. It's a little miracle of a city.

    I'm wearing Frescaessenza today - layered with some Pink Grapefruit by Body Shop on top for some added juiciness. I often wear these two together as this combo just works for me - Frescaessenza alone is a bit too powdery/dry for me, and Pink Grapefruit is very simple and short lasting alone, and together they form a beautiful and fresh scent that's somehow very calm and a bit energizing at once.

    Perfumed Lady - lol. *Galop confusion*. My bad. I think it was ComDiva then...or maybe it was a mix of ComDiva, Quarry and someone else? ((spraying Galop on!)). I hope you enjoy it PL. I did - I wore it while I did an online quiz (exam) and I passed the exam so now Galop will always make me think of 'winning!' lol

    Good morning everyone I'm also worried about the flooding of Venice. I recently saw a documentary about this specific problem. I hope they manage to save the city before it's too late. Never been there, but would love to go sometime. I've however heard that the tourism has kind of developed into a problem, so I have mixed emotions about going... Anyway, I'm scenttwin with Tdem today in Obsession. Have a great day everyone. I have the day off

    It could have been me, Mike. I recall participating in a huddle of BNers at the counter at the Hermès boutique. I love the idea of the group melding into the persona of Perfumed Lady!

    I’m wearing Coromandel today. With that, the autumn season truly begins for me.

    Have a good day.

    l did a solid couple of hours in the garden today, & gave the lawn its last mow of the year. lt felt so good to be outside in the sunshine. My hydrangeas are still blooming, & there are still new buds on my roses, although l expect frost will soon put a stop to that.

    Afterwards l treated myself to a nice hot bubble bath, & now l'm wearing Khol de Bahrein, from my sample. l think this is the perfect post-bath pampering scent.

    Good afternoon all !. Sounds like your day off was impeccably timed, teardrop . I would love to give our grass one more cut but it is more like a swamp at the moment

    Really sorry to see the awful situation unfolding Venice. A dream destination that has been near the top of our bucket list for some time.

    Venice drowns, Australia burns, East Coast gets record cold.

    Sampling a nice, sweet tuberose scent, Champs Lunaires by Rogue Perfumery. Top notes had a bitter bit (grapefruit rind?), which dispersed quickly.

    Me too! Being thought of as a conglomerate of BN ladies would not hurt my feelings a bit!

    Not a "bad" at all, Mike! I loved your posts yesterday! A little bday comedy! And I don't know how any of you keep track of what's going on at the meetups; so much excitement!

    I am very shocked, but maybe shouldn't be; I got smacked down by Hermes. I'm hoping it was just the person responding to my message, and not indicative of overall customer service, but no Galop sample for me. It was unhelpfully suggested that I try Galop at one of the boutiques, after I already mentioned I won't be near one any time soon. Really, this would be the usual response from your average house but their service previously had me conditioned (spoiled) to expect more than the average from Hermes. Oh well, now I know! I'll still get around to Galop, one of these days!

    Trilby and HOP, you both smell so perfectly autumnal and just yum today! I want to sit between you two.

    In Mon Guerlain EdP Intense; good afternoon/evening to all!
