    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..."

    Hi. I'm also wearing an iris scent today - Ferre de Ferre.

    It's so dull and rainy here I am writing Xmas cards and wrapping presents to
    cheer myself up.

    Hubbie and I are going to the local Farm Shop for lunch.

    Morning all!

    l have two weeks off from today, except for a day in Uni on Thursday of next week. Before that l have to prepare a presentation & a short piece of written work on my plans for my dissertation. So l need to spend quite a bit of time on that before doing the pre-Christmas house clean, & then l might put up the tree at the end of next week. l've already done most of my Christmas shopping online, but l will need to make a trip into town at some point.

    Today l'm waiting for a delivery, but l might go up to the hospital library at some point. This morning l'm trying my sample of Fate Woman.

    Hi, everyone -

    Thameen Peacock Throne for me today, slogging my way through my bag of samples.





    Despite all the spicy/sweet notes listed, I'm getting primarily lemon and the fruity aspect of the rose. Will wait for the drydown, but so far, not for me. Marvelous Monday to all!

    Peacock Throne fragrance notes: Sicilian Lemon Oil, Pink Pepper, Nutmeg, Taif Rose, Ylang, Turkish Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Haitian Vetiver, Patchouli Heart, Sandalwood, 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

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Twilly d’Hermes Eau Poivree today. I didn’t used to think I liked pink peppercorn in perfume but I do like it in Twilly. It smells more like black pepper to my nose.

    Have a good day.

    Trilby Lark, pink pepper in Twilly Poivree smells more like black pepper to me, too. I liked that scent quite a lot, too. I do usually enjoy pink pepper in fragrances though.

    Wearing Bvlgari Black today. Had a very difficult day at work, now off to meet a friend who seems to have had an even more difficult day at work today. I hope there's nothing a couple of beers and a good talk couldn't fix.

    Teardrop, have a good two weeks balancing resting and all these things that need to be done!

    Good afternoon all !. ClockworkAlice, Mondays always seem to be the worst . Here's hoping the beers and good company prove to be therapeutic.

    teardrop, hope the lousy weather improves for your two week break. Rest, potter, imbibe and enjoy (don't worry about the presentation - I guarantee all will be well ).

    Thanks ClockworkAlice, hope you & your friend feel better after your evening together!

    And thank you, Jon! l will follow your instructions to the letter. l must say though that the crappy weather does encourage me to sit down & get my work done. l had a quite productive day today, even though l didn't make it to the library.

    Lavish sprays from my just-received bottle of Iskander by Parfum d'Empire -- the old formula, thanks to a tip from Cazaubon.

    So disappointed that they've discontinued these 100ml bottles, and drastically increased prices on their 50mls. Not to mention the reformulations. <sigh>
