    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..."

    Congrats on the find, NCal. Are you enjoying it?

    I'm wearing For Her EDT today, and wishing for 30 Roses to get back her sense of smell asap and sending the healing vibes to anyone not feeling their best.

    Morning all! More healing vibes going out to all who need them.

    Feeling in need of a rest myself, but off to work in Eau de Shalimar. At least it's a "normal"-length shift today.

    Good morning everyone and congrats to N. Cal on his find. I'm still not feeling too well, but hopefully the antibiotics will work soon. Sotd is N.R For her edt, so I'm scenttwin with ClockworkAlice.

    Hello, everyone, and N. Cal, nice acquisition - hope you're loving it!

    Feeling pretty well on the mend myself, but dear hubby's been sick and miserable for the last week... Hoping he turns the corner today!

    I think I'm going to spend this week alternating between fragrances in my Wardrobe, and trying to continue to make a dent in my sample bag.

    So, inspired by techt's SOTD choice on the "Today's Fragrances" page and a blind grab of three from my samples to choose from, today I'm in Casamorati 1888 Lira. Lovely! I believe I sampled this at Harrod's a few years back (on a spectacular day out with Jon), as it is already on my Wishlist... It's extremely well done, and is one of the rare fragrances that gets me to like the smell of licorice. It's got such tremendous sillage on me, however, that I don't know what I'd actually do with a full bottle. The sample will suffice for now, I think.

    Trouble-free Tuesday to all!




    Casamorati 1888 Lira fragrance notes: Bergamot, Blood orange, Lavender, Jasmine, Cinnamon, Licorice, Musk, Vanilla, Caramel.
    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

    Back to the leathers today: Jolie Madame by Balmain (1953). An atomiseur bottle from (I think) the 1970s, but new to me. Heavier on the violets than other vintages I've tried.

    Warm yesterday. Supposed to be the same today. Birds are checking out our "nesting cup" out on the front porch. I can't tell "who" yet. Just a brown, female sparrow / finch-sized bird from what I can tell. I hope the House Finches are the ones returning. It would be their third year here.

    Korrigan (Lubin) - got this as a sample last year - it was the 'of course I'd never wear this!' one I got to make up a dozen, and what do you know, sometimes you just want to snuggle up with some soothing rice pudding smells but you have to go to work... It's really hitting the spot!

    (and I lust after the bottle...)
