    Belated congratulations to RHM's daughter on passing her exam!

    Finally, some perfect summer weather today, although tomorrow, it will be in the too hot temp. range of 38C (100F).This morning, I wore Bottega Veneta Eau de Velours & this afternoon, it is Mon Guerlain EDP.

    Happy Sunday all!

    Good morning all !. Bright and breezy here - will be heading into the countryside for a pub lunch before taking in the Rangers v Celtic match this afternoon (fingers crossed for Mr teardrop ). Looks like the forthcoming gales and rain will be perfectly timed for tomorrow's journey to work .

    I am wearing Eau Ressourcante by Clarins.

    Yesterday, I made a bit of an error by applying some
    unidentified sample of perfume just before a concert I was singing
    in (the chorus in Handel's Messiah.) It was all I had
    in my handbag and I know I had ordered it recently but can't
    for the life of me identify it!!
    It was very powerful and powdery so I fear I may have upset a few people.
    So unlike me.

    Thanks, Jon! Mr teardrop is glued to the pre-match coverage & the tension is building... They already have filthy weather up in Glasgow so that'll make things even more interesting.

    lt's the last day of my leave before returning to work tomorrow. Yesterday's overtime shift was a good one & l had time to put up the tree, so that didn't really count.

    l'm not dressed or scented yet, so l'll report back later...

    Hello all,

    It is raining and drizzling here intermittently so I’m wearing the very cozy Guerlain Heritage. I’m looking forward to a relaxing day of pottering around the house.

    I enjoy hearing about your sports events, Jon and teardrop.

    Have a good day.

    awwww kewart the other singers probably enjoyed your perfumed self.

    Gaultier2 for me today on a damp wet day in Arizona (AZ). I have been attempting to declutter my late parents house again. I tackle it sporadically in wintertime because I cannot take AZ summers. A carload of dead electronics went to a Hazardous Waste event recently, avoiding going to a landfill- that felt good. To build up my strength I bought myself a cruiser bicycle and have been riding 20-30 minutes every day on the flat streets. Must start somewhere!

    Bravo, knit, on your progress in clearing out the house. I know from personal experience how labor intensive it is to do it responsibly. I, too, recently purchased a bike, a trail model, and greatly enjoy riding it. I ride up a gradual incline to a view park and coast downhill back home. Exhilarating!

    Thanks, Jon. You are so right. l could grumble on about various injustices that went on during that game, but we all know which was the better team.

    Hi all,

    Nearly twinned with Kewart on Like This - was looking for something warm yet effervescent for today's dark and wet Dublin, but my eye was caught by Vaninger, and it's cheered me up no end!

    Louis Vuitton, Nouveau Monde

    Of the rose oud template. This is more balanced (read: more Western) so perhaps those seeking a purer oud experience would try elsewhere for a bigger bite of agarwood. Smooth rich leather accord not unlike an LV handbag, I guess. Olibanum makes it delightfully resinous. Saffron keeps things warm and vanilla helps create that safe dry down.

    Sure, it’s a safe oud experience. But it’s the real thing, nothing misled by aroma chemical devices.

    This one gets props for creativity with the balance and exquisite blending by Jacques Cavallier. And for me it’s a walk back into Oudlandia Respectika following my recent playtime with some more chemy oud concoctions.

    It feels high quality.

    Another rainy for us as well. We've experienced a storm all of yesterday - lots of heavy rain, winds, and brief power outages.

    I am still craving nose-filling scents after scent-free days last week, because the coming week is even worse. My chorus (no scents allowed! no dryer sheets! no hair mists! really, they get quite hysterical about it, yet no one said a word to me after I infected the alto 1's with flu) has rehearsal on Monday and Thursday in preparation for our holiday concerts on Saturday and Sunday. Inspired by Jon's Krizia display, I'm wearing Teatro alla Scala this morning, and sympathizing with kewart. As much as I make fun of them, I wouldn't want to cause my fellow singers distress.
