    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..."

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday easyfish!

    Cook.bot, Pickles is adorable, even with teeth & claws out!

    The next 24 hours here in the UK will be interesting, to say the least. Armouring myself with Stash today.

    Hello, everyone, and happy birthday, dear Easyfish!

    Wishing all of you across the pond a meaningful, satisfying, and uncertainty-easing election.

    I'm wearing Nobile 1942's La Danza delle Libellule, from (yet another) sample-that-I-didn't-pick-for-myself-but-am-always-interested-to-try.



    I'm finding the apple/coconut combination is sitting oddly with me today. Not bad, just... odd. Thrilling Thursday to all!

    La Danza delle Libellule fragrance notes: Bergamot, Apple, Cedar, Cinnamon, Musk, Vanilla, Coconut.
    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

    Good morning!

    I hope your day is wonderful, easyfish! Wishing you a very happy birthday!

    Oh how I love Pickles! What a silly little beauty! He's going to be one gorgeous cat, handsome boy. I am anxiously awaiting the rearranging of the trees right along with you, Cook.bot. So far, they've only batted at it daintily (and only the hub's tree, heh heh heh) but I know cats too well to believe this angelic behavior can last.

    Thanks for the kind comments on the biker tree and especially my friend, Biker Santa! cestrum is on the right track. Biker Santa has requested just bottles of booze; no cookie baking required. JR, we know you have something good at your house for him.

    I'm in L'Instant Eau de Noel this morning.

    Shycat, I'd love to hear how much of a PITA self-tree-flocking is when you're done. My bigger, more traditional tree was bought flocked but after some years, it does start flaking off. Unfortunately, can't justify a new one since there's nothing else wrong with it, lol. I've been contemplating going DIY on it but my crafting skills usually just make things worse. Any insight will be appreciated!

    It's been a Tom Ford filled winter so far. This one wears so nicely in the cooler weather. Probably one of the most versatile fragrances I've ever laid my nez on! I smelled this one at Saks during the Chicago Basenotes meetup with krooze and I've been enamored by it since and bought way too many backups...but considering TF's history of axing great fragrances I felt it was necessary

    PerfumedLady, I love your tree and especially biker Santa, so cool!
    Cookbot, little Pickles is just adorable and I'm sure he knows it, too.

    Jon, loving the birthday fish!

    Thanks to our friends across the pond for your good wishes for the UK. l went to vote first thing this morning when the polling stations opened, & had to queue for the first time ever! The same phenomenon is being reported across the country, which gives me hope for democracy, if nothing else.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Mugler Cuir Impertinent again today. Best wishes on UK elections. Politics are amazingly contentious here too, at the moment. Not fun.

    Have a good day.

    Feel better soon, kewart!

    Kitty pics are the best. Thanks, Cook.bot!

    PL, I think your tree is very pretty. I don't have an indoor tree this year, but I can see the one I put up outdoors through the living room window.

    I cut my finger this morning slicing a bagel and man, did it bleed. I think it has finally stopped but what a mess. I'm wearing Rhubarb Ecarlate because it's been raining here since Tuesday and rhubarb cheers me up.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.
