    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..."

    Good morning!

    I loved For Her EDT yesterday so much I have to wear it again. It is so beautiful. I can't believe I didn't want to wear it for almost two months.

    Podiatrist seen and the verdict is plantar fasciitis as I suspected.
    I have heel inserts and exercises to do but I think it might be a long
    haul.
    I bought a small roll-on perfume in M and S on the way back to cheer
    myself up. It's one of their own called Bergamot and Mimosa and smells
    really uplifting.

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

    Today I’ve finished a sample of Mandragore. A bright citrusy scent perfect for the gym. Later I’ll switch to something a little more appropriate for cool weather. Have a great day all!

    Kewart, I had plantar fasciitis too, the dr. gave me a cortisone shot but I don’t know how much it helped, I think it just takes time. Be sure to wear low-heeled shoes (not flats, apparently 1-2 inches is best). Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    I’m in Blend Oud Tupai Love this morning.

    I tested Initio Atomic Rose yesterday and was complimented 3 times.
    It wore beautifully. I am an under sprayer.. but yesterday I really tried to be a touch more bold.

    Today will be a later application of Atomic Rose.

    a~~

    Kewart: I'm so sorry to hear about your PF. It might take a minute but it can get better. Keep up the therapy and it will be sooner. This is something that can heal. Sending healing vibes... you always smell amazing

    Would you consider Atomic Rose a jammy rose scent? Another good rose scent to try would be Tauerville Rose Flash.

    Hello and happy Wednesday! I am wearing Success Is A Job In New York City. I use the old name, as that is what is on my bottle. It’s a little bit of a bombshell scent, maybe not proper for washing dishes and running the sweeper ... oh well.

    Thank you for the kind compliments towards Jameson. I have read them to him, but that was maybe a mistake. He thinks he is too cute for his own good! He has sure been a good nurse to me, since my return home. He stays pretty close ...

    Kewart, good luck at the foot doctor! It can be a long, frustrating recovery. Best of luck!

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Last night I set out my remaining Ormonde Jayne samples when I saw that it was Geza Schoen's birthday today, but I forgot all about it this morning and instead put Robert Piguet Fracas on one wrist and Frederic Malle Carnal Flower on the other.

    Carnal Flower is stunning.
