    It's raining here today. I'm wearing one of my 4160 Tuesdays samples - Paris 1948. I'm very tempted to get a full bottle of this one!

    Happy Saturday all!

    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 all !. Dour and uninspiring conditions here with another storm rapidly approaching. These weather systems have an infuriating way of perfectly timing their arrival just in time for the weekend

    Good morning!

    Jon, stay safe through the storm! I hope it doesn't harm our fellow friends from British and Irish Isles.

    I'm going to get my hair dyed and cut today, too. I hope I'll enjoy the outcome.

    "Storm Dennis" has really kicked in here, & l arrived home from work feeling like a wet rag. l am so sick of rain after four months almost non-stop.

    Feeling better after a hot shower though, & l'm cosying up for the evening in vintage Samsara EDP. Delighted to see that ClockworkAlice has also fallen for its charms!
    Hope you love your new hairdo, what colour did you go for?

    I spent yesterday with another Portland perfumista browsing through her collection. She frequents our local thrift stores and has amazing luck finding things that interest her. She gifted me with several, and today I'm wearing (not in the directory) Crabtree & Evelyn Oeillet, from 1988. The original price sticker on the box says $12.50. It's lovely, C & E made nice scents for a while.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Shadesofbleu, thanks for reminding me about Gold Leather, I need to wear that again soon. For today, I’m in Mendittorosa Archetipo, a nice woody, outdoorsy scent.
