    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..."

    Happy Birthday Kotori!

    My morning scent was Eau Rose by Diptyque. Enjoyed a lovely lunch out today & now that I'm back home, I've changed to Bottega Veneta EDP.

    Have a good day!

    Happy birthday, Kotori!!!

    It's Wednesday, so I'm wearing my current Wednesday combo - Frescaessenza + Body Shop's Pink Grapefruit. I think I'll be wearing these two together until they run out (both are nearing the bottoms).

    Have a nice day!

    Hi, all -

    Happy birthday, kotori and what fun, interesting, and excellent fragrance choices today!

    I didn't post yesterday, but this is day two for me in Masque Kintsugi, from my enormous pile of samples, which I'm determined to winnow substantially by year's end.



    I like this one a lot, probably because the word that it evokes for me is "between." It's not a full-on floral, it's not a full-on oriental, it's not a full-on woody or food-y scent, it's somewhere between. Huh. I just looked up the definition of kintsugi, and apparently it's "the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique." Repairing by filling in... between. I like it!

    Wondrous Wednesday to everyone!

    Kintsugi fragrance notes: Bergamot, Magnolia, Amber, Golden Suede, Centifolia Rose, Violet Leaf, Benzoin Siam, Raspberry Leaf, Patchouli, Vanilla.

    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

    I forgot to post my SOTD yesterday (I wore Baikal Gris by Areej le Dore). Today we're having a pre-Thanksgiving Potluck lunch here at the office (I brought Latin roasted pork leg) so I wore the most 'Thanksgiving' scent I own:

    So, the dentist visit wasn't quite as bad as l feared, but l still need two new fillings. They can't fit me in for that for another month, but at least it'll all be sorted before Christmas!
