    Thanks, Joy!

    But is that “gee” like “golly gee (or the letter G)?

    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

    Happy birthday to Ine, and a very happy 98th birthday to Betty White!



    I'm sitting out the sync to indulge in a real rarity today, with gratitude to RoRo:

    Happy Birthday, Ine!

    In synch with Mandorlo di Sicilia -
    which I now know is pronounced Sicheelia.

    not in the directory



    https://translate.google.com/



    sometimes google translate will have a speaker symbol in the lower left hand corner that you can press to hear how something is pronounced but it is not always correct


    Chergui = shehr ghee
    g followed by a 'u' plus vowel is pronounced hard in French, but in Italian is pronounced gw as in Guido

    Robert Piguet = roe behr pee gay

    syllables aren't usually stressed in French but if you are used to stressing a syllable , aim for the last one
    How do you know what a French whorehouse smells like?

    Today I am sampling Cedre Sambac for the first time.

    Tonight I will be sampling Craving by Phuong Dang, which I have sampled a few times in the past, and can’t seem to make up my mind fully about.

    Happy birthday, ineespenes!


    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..."

    Thanks for making that more understandable.

    Foxbins, I hope you got/are getting good results back from the scoping.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing 31 rue Cambon today, along with a dab of Habit Rouge to each wrist and top of hands. Wow, Habit Rouge is very potent! I adore it and it’s on my shortlist for future purchase.

    Have a good day.
