    [

    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..."

    Welcome back, Ken


    Ryan, such a frustrating and stressful situation. I hope things get resolved soon.


    Off to our local Xmas market this morning where the mulled wine will be top of the list for sampling. Various nibbles on offer too with sweet chestnuts the red hot favourite for the accompaniment


    Puredistance Gold (sample): green mandarin, calabrian bergamot, pink pepper, rosemary, clove, indian jasmine, spanish labdanum, geranium, cinnamon, styrax, benzoin, myrhh, patchouli, madagascar vanilla, tonka bean, castoreum, vetiver.









    I have had major issues with Antoine Lie but I decided to cast prejudice aside and I'm glad I did because this is fantastic. Rich, opulent oriental with a wee nod towards Clive Christian No1 but still different enough to justify owning both. Hugely impressed

    Happy Saturday!

    Ryan, ouch I hope it works out okay in the end.

    Jon, your visit to local market and an early wine'o'clock sounds wonderful. I visited a Christmas artisan market yesterday, too, and bought some nice teas, spice packets and soaps for my friends and relatives. I might go again today or tomorrow to search for some more nice little gifts. Good luck hunting for nice things!

    Pamplelune, nice to meet you! I love your nickname. Pamplelune is one of my favourite scents. I think yesterday you smelled just proper - as every enthusiast should after a sampling spree!

    kbe, welcome back!

    I have some tidying up to do and I must work on a translation I promised to finish before Christmas. I couldn't decide what to do first, so I made a lunch and slowly ate it while rewatching some Sherlock, because all work and no play makes Alice a dull girl. But I guess I must go and do some actual work now.
    Have a great weekend, scented friends!

    Edit: and I forgot to mention I'm wearing Lolita Lempicka today!

    Today's scent is FM Iris Poudre - a new bottle. It's a little different to the Iris Poudre of old, but still similar enough to purchase. I'm getting used to this new version.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Tauerville Patch Flash. It’s been a while. I used to wear patchouli every Saturday, almost as a ritual. It was a nice practice. Driving up to LA this morning.

    Have a good day.

    Actually it was fine. The B&BW store opened at 9 for the sale (rest of mall doesn’t open til 10) and there was hardly anybody. Went in with my shopping list and was out in 20 minutes. Piece of cake!

    Kbe ♫ back in the saddle again ♫

    Everybody sounds good today. Mulled wine ... the mere mention's giving me a craving. I did have a nice Australian merlot with our venison steak and sweet/sour cabbage-and-bacon lunch.

    Freshly showered, I'm wearing sweatpants that read "sleep in" all over them and a soft new sweatshirt imprinted with a bluebird. Adding to this, I'm floating in a cloud of Guerlain Coquin. A person couldn't get any snugglier for sci fi Saturday afternoon watching Mandalorian with hubby and dog.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.
