    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! Happy birthdays to misters Balenciaga and Dior. A good day to wear fragrances from their houses to commemorate them.

    But today I'm wearing Meharees and will go to see a dental hygienist after work.

    Good morning everyone Today the sun officially is back here It's cloudy here so haven't seen it yet, but at least it's proper daylight again Hopefully I won't feel so tired all the time now... I tried to find a proper scent in my monthly rotation for the occasion, and settled on ô de Lancome as my sotd.

    It got cold here (for us South Floridians) so I reached for something thick and cuddly:

    Same here in Southern California, Mike, plus a nice middle of the night rain. Occasional cold weather is a rare treat here in the Land of Eternal Summer. I’m wearing a cool weather scent: Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau.

    Have a good day.

    I will seize any opportunity to celebrate the early perfumes of Monsieur Dior, so today I'll kick off his 115th birthday with his very first, created to honor his war-hero sister.

    Today I am testing out my sample of Fan Your Flames by Nishane. I'm very interested in both this scent and Initio's Side Effect, which I will be testing tomorrow, and want to see if either/both are full bottle worthy, if they are too similar and I should stick to one, etc.
