    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..."

    Belated BN-iversary congratulations to kewart & RichMan'sOldSpice!

    Get well wishes to kewart & Mike!

    Happy Birthday to badarun & La Flâneuse! Do they still post?

    Very extreme smoke haze here - very strong smell & visibility is low. There is a forecast of rain to fall soon, a bit could fall tonight with more on Sunday/Monday which is good for helping put the flames out but if it comes in too quick & heavy it could cause flooding and/or landslides in the already bushfire damaged areas so please keep us in your thoughts over the next week. They should of completed the planned control burns last winter instead of cancelling them - enough said......

    Started with Eau Rose by Diptyque & I'm now wearing L'Agent by Agent Provocateur. Might have to bring out the big guns to overpower the smell of smoke for the evening. Yes, Rose Flash I'm talking about you!

    Have a good day!

    Good morning!

    Happy Birthday to badarun and La Flâneuse!

    Get well wishes to everyone who's not feeling well.

    CuddleCat - ouch. I'm wishing for the rain in Australia to start and to be gentle. I hope this nightmare stops as soon as possible.
    I have been reading about eucalypts lately, I didn't know before that they are such difficult trees to deal with. It's hard to imagine living in the area where trees themselves cause fires because they actually need it to sprout. I hope the government will do all the control burns in time from now on to prevent this.

    Wishing badarun and La Flaneuse a very Happy Birthday!

    Thanks again for my Basenotes birthday and Get Well wishes.

    I saw a podiatrist yesterday, who made me some arch supports
    to put in my shoes and told me to keep doing the foot exercises.
    She also said that PF can take months or even years to get better,
    which is not the best news. I long to be able to do my ballet and walking
    again.

    I am wearing Mauboussin.

    Morning all!

    CuddleCat, l hope you get just the right kind of rain real soon. l'd send you some of ours if l could.

    l'll be going into town today, as l have a gift card from Christmas burning a hole in my wallet, & l need a few other essentials as well. l'm wearing Sahara Noir, to keep me feeling warm & dry on this wet & gloomy day. At least the winds have died down; apparently they reached 80mph near here yesterday.

    Hello and best to everyone. ((((CuddleCat)))) I hope you get just enough rain to bring relief and no more. Xo
    Kewart I hope you feel better soon. I’m sure you already know this, but the towel stretch first thing in the morning before getting out of bed helped me tremendously.
    And get better wishes to anyone else who needs them.

    Hello all you good-smelling people, and apologies for the spritz and dash today - I hope to catch up on everyone's posts later tonight or tomorrow!

    Wonderful Wednesday to all!

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Morning everyone.

    To bed after midnight (so counts as today for me) I wore Lollia’s Inspire. I got this fragrance as a gift 12 years ago when I was about 17 or so. At the time I wore it constantly but as an adult it doesn’t really fit who I am or the type of fragrances I like. I’m wearing it for the first time in 10+ years and it took me back instantly to a much simpler time. I don’t know if I’d wear it out, but it is a nice bedtime scent for me.

    My scent of the evening when I go out for a late lunch/early dinner and drinks will be Carnal Flower.

    Twinning Trilby in Timbuktu, which was not a good choice given that a clammy fog has been added to our already unnatural warmth. I'd like to complain more about the weather, but it seems absurd and petty in light of what Australia's going through. Hang in there, Oz.

    Happy Birthday badarun, & La Flaneuse if you're out there!

    l had a most enjoyable shopping trip, & the sun came out this afternoon.

    Do l recall someone here mentioning Miller Harris's Rose Silence shower gel recently? kewart, perhaps? l found some in TK Maxx today, & it smells divine. Looking forward to using this one in the spring.
