    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..."

    When I was young, we called it "personal space", not, "social distancing" like nowadays. Actually, shouldn't it be called Public distancing?

    Good morning everyone and Merry Christmas In Norway we celebrate the 24th, so we had our traditional Christmasdinner and opened presents. I got lots of nice presents, but none were perfumerelated. Sotd (like yesterday) is Portrait of a lady. My mom actually complimented me on it yesterday, and she rarely comments on my perfumes

    Friendly greetings to those celebrating the day

    Ah, Easyfish, my beloved German mother would adore that postcard scene you posted. Personally, I'm partial to Jon's birds and holly.

    Teardrop, I'm working today, too. My sporatic client sent me work, so work I do.

    My blasted, self-imposed signmaking project is almost squared away; finishing details won't be so draining as the past month's labors. This made me wander so far from my routine that I didn't even wear fragrance for more than a week. Getting back on track wearing the enchanting Fragonard Rose de Mai.

    ROSE DE MAI: "Around sweet-smelling Grasse roses blossom gardenia and violet, jasmine and wild lily of the valley, discreet against a backdrop of ylang-ylang and blackcurrant leaves."
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Me too! Mitsouko is the grand dame of feminine perfumery and therefore worthy of the holiday occasion.

    Today is a quiet day at home and tomorrow we see all the relatives. There’ll be a tad bit of drama to spice up the day: the family member who used to be the biggest proponent of family unity wants nothing to do with us anymore. His reason is a big mystery...

    Merry Christmas, all!

    Packing up sold merch - online selling knows no day off. Not complaining mind you - just stating a fact. A White Russian or two, is on the agenda.

    Switching over to Salome by Papillon. Love, this stuff!

    Season's Greetings and Blessings on Basenoters, one and all! Finally finished with work after a cooking marathon from 2pm yesterday to noon today. (It was worth it, as my Bûche de Noël came out perfect.) Kicking back now in some flannel pajamas and my Christmas tradition of vintage Dior-Dior (1976).
