    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..."

    Snowstorm chaos here in Boston today. I have a splinter in my foot, shoveled anyway, and am grumpy. Spent the day in another test of No. 04 Bois de Balincourt.



    For whatever reason, I am largely anosmic to this entire scent. It's not bad, but on me it just disappears. None of the spiciness, woodiness or sillage I was expecting. Ah, well. Terrific Tuesday, everyone!

    No. 04 Bois de Balincourt fragrance notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Amber wood.

    Hello,
    Wearing Frescaessenza with some Pink Grapefruit on top again.
    It was really sad and scary to read about the school shootings, Quarry.

    Ineespenes, congrats on the new home! Live happily and peacefully!

    It's December and we're finally having snow. Looks pretty.

    Hi, everyone!

    Yesterday we went to the funeral of a good friend's child...
    So I am not in such a good mood today.
    It is also a cloudy, cold and rainy day, and I am wearing
    Gabrielle - Chanel, which doesn't make me feel any better.
    I wish I had chosen something warmer.

    Nice, but too light for me today. I want something with more olfactory heft. I'll save this one to wear in warmer weather. Wonderful Wednesday to everyone!

    dora I am so sorry. Sending healing thoughts and prayers.

    I am in Vancouver to see one of my favorite bands, The Dandy Warhols. Tomorrow following them to Seattle then on to Portland. My trip is being paid for by dear friends who are super fans. Lucky me! The band is having some type of event at the John Fleuvog shoe store this afternoon. I may have to leave my money behind!

    I’m traveling with samples only. PG Musc Maori for me today.

    Sorry to hear about your friend's child Dora :-(

    I'm wearing a spicy lavender fragrance that I created. Smells a bit like Dior Eau Noir with less herbal notes which are replaced by green tea absolute and Haitian Vetiver.

    Ryan, I am so sorry you and your friends were terrorized. It's not like our citizens are scrapping over food for survival. The violence is 100% irrational. Hugs all around to my peaceful friends here, catching up with foxbins, RHM, CwAlice, HoP. And flowers for Dora for the saddest of times.

    The sun is shining. Wow! Normally I hardly notice the horizon-to-horizon gray, what with staring into the Mac display, but today, like my British chums' recent excursions, is dental check-up day and a lovely one to get out in the world. Prada d'Iris Cedre seemed fresh and right for seeing the hygienist.

    Good afternoon all !. *dora*, I'm so sorry to hear about such a tragic event. My condolences to you all.

    Mrs Q, the never ending battle with gun culture is deeply upsetting. It is COMPLETELY irrational and seems firmly entrenched. As long as those in authority continue pandering to the gun lobby it will never change. Enough said

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Chanel No. 22 again today. It’s excellent but it doesn’t Wow me like Coromandel and Cuir de Russie do. I really do adore patchouli and leather scents.

    Teardrop, best wishes for success on your presentation.

    Have a good day.
