    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..."

    Even though it's the wrong kind of weather to wear it now, I'll go with Creed Virgin Island Water for Sync Friday. A great time to wear it over in the Phillip Island.

    Good morning all !. Day off today which will be spent confined to barracks after seeing the miserable conditions outside. We will be attempting a classic panettone from an old family recipe kindly supplied by an ex colleague who now resides back in his Sicilian homeland. Early wine o'clock is inevitable.
    No prize for guessing what is all over the news here . I have no loyalty towards any of the main players and am more relieved than anything else. There was always going to be one overriding issue and it has clearly played a significant part. Now for chrissakes put us out of our misery and GET IT DONE !.

    foxbins, hope your finger is ok!

    TGIF!

    Synching in Penhaligon Elixir layered with Masakï Matsushïma's Mat; Chocolat.



    Looking forward to wine o'clock with particular enthusiasm this week...

    Elixir fragrance notes: Eucalyptus, Cardamom, Orange Blossom Absolute, White Cedar, Red Turkish Rose Absolute, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute, Cinnamon Leaves, Mace, Rosewood, Benzoin, Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Incense, Red Sandalwood, Guaicum Wood.

    Mat; Chocolat notes: Chocolate.
    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

    Couldn't decide what to wear for the Sync so I'm sitting this one out. It's finally a bit cooler in Miami today (and grey clouds) and I am a bit sleepy, I didn't get to bed til 1 am and I got up early yesterday (4:30am) so my body is a bit beat-up getting ready for the office.

    I had a dream, last night, that this scent was in my front right pocket and I remember pulling it out in the dream and wondering why I'd pocketed it. So I guess I'll wear it as my SOTD lol:

    Wearing Seafleur today. Not having a great week. My sale fell through on my condo due to FHA b.s. and my condo association lying about having their FHA approval paperwork in line. Feeling very stressed out and very frustrated with the whole thing.

    Ugh, Ryan. That would make a Grinch out of anybody.

    I've been wearing so many masculines this week that I think a girly scent is in order: Missoni (2006) EDP. I can't decide if my 5-year-old bottle is starting to go off or if that hint of coffee note was always there under the chocolate.

    Lordy. My sympathies. My HOA are also the most horrible liars this side of hell.

    And shout out, Kbe! Good to see you back. I'm in Creed's Fleur de The Rose Bulgare, not the sync-iest sync in the world, but I put on enough that people on Phillip Island might be able to smell me.
