    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..."

    I will sync with Creed Original Santal. I absolutely hate this fragrance, one of the worst Creeds that I've smelled. There's no sandalwood in this fragrance.

    Congrats to sjg3839 on his 43k milestone post.

    Completely forgot about today's synch although I'm fairly certain I have a multitude of options.

    Greetings, and happy Friday!

    Sending healing vibes to Robin (and anyone else feeling under the weather), and to Ryan, warm thoughts and a reminder to breathe. On the real estate-selling front, one of the best pieces of advice *I* have received is to remember that you are buying/selling/renting a house/apartment, not a home. You make your space a home once you get there and make it yours. Jon, enjoy your mini-holiday!

    In sync today (turns out I own and enjoy a baker's dozen one-stars from the original guide) in Jean Coutourier Coriandre. The fact that it is the signature scent of one of my favorite people (not a BN-er, though) makes me enjoy it all the more.



    Fantastic Friday, everyone!

    Coriandre Eau de Toilette fragrance notes: Coriander, Angelica, Orange flower, Rose, Jasmine, Orris, Lily of the valley, Geranium, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Oakmoss, Civet, Musk.

    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 Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hello all,

    In sync with Diptyque Eau de Lierre, which I applied last night at bedtime. According to the guide, it’s “watered gin”. I concur. I’m not enjoying it so it won’t be reapplied after showering. I’ll probably go back to Coromandel.

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