    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..."

    It's super windy here today, taking advantage of the mild not warm weather by wearing Donna by Valentino.

    Happy Saturday all! Enjoy the weekend.

    Happy Birthday Whitefluffy , & Happy BN-iversary to Robin!

    We had frost here this morning too, & beautiful sunshine all day. Let's hope the cold, clear weather will last a few days this time.

    l'm only just showered & scented, having spent the afternoon cleaning the inside of some windows with vinegar spray. That's the only problem with the low winter sunshine, it shows up all the dirt! Smelling much nicer now in Ambre Passion.

    I originally had plans to go out for dinner and wine tonight. Weather is awful though so not entirely sure if I’m still going.

    Still I will stick to my original scent idea of Galop d’Hermes.

    Hello everyone and thanks for the birthdaywishes yesterday To Whitefluffy happy b.day today Robin, congrats on the BN-anniversary. I had a nice day yesterday. The tapas was great and I had great company. I got a dress from my siblings and not less than 2 perfumes from the b.f. He intended to buy the original Lolita Lempicka and the extrait of No 5. The salesperson must have been new because he ended up with the edp of No 5 and Lolitaland. I was somewhat sceptic about the Lolitaland at first,but he couldn't return it since it was on sale. So I tried it and it wasn't too bad. Lots of peach in the topnotes and lime. The drydown reminds me of L de Lolita Lempicka that I like a lot. Sotd is Shalimar today.

    Ineespenes, good to hear that the birthday party was fun! It's a pity that you didn't get what was originally intended, but I hope you'll enjoy your gifts, too!

    Sotd was Gucci Guilty Absolute.

    It ended up being too snowy for me to want to go out but Galop was still a good choice to open a nice glass of wine after drinking tea all day to.

    Tomorrow I will go fragrance shopping! I might just go there completely unscented so I can test something out on skin.

    Hope you come back from shopping tomorrow very smelly and brimming with your thoughts. A photo or two to share with us would be cool, too.
