    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..."

    Morning all.

    As you may have heard on the news, we have had
    severe flooding in Shrewbury over the past two weeks
    and the Town Centre is almost cut off to cars. Thousands
    of homes and businesses lying near the River Severn have had
    their homes and premises flooded. Luckily for us, we are high enough
    up for it not to have affected our home but my heart goes out to those
    in less fortunate situations. People are pulling together and the emergency
    sevices have been wonderful, working through the days and nights to
    rescue elderly, vulnerable people from care homes etc. Local restaurants are
    offering free tea and coffee to those in need and a place to spend the day inside
    in the warm if necessary.

    I am wearing Joop Le Bain.

    Hello and best to everyone. Kewart, how terrible. My heart goes out to those who were affected, and I’m relieved your home was spared.

    Creed Vanisia for me today. It’s been reminding me of something else, I couldn’t put my finger on it at first and then it came to me: with its rich sandalwood, rose, and soft spice, Vanisia is very much a sister to Chanel Egoiste.

    Kewart, so sorry you and the rest of your community are dealing with those awful floods. Stay safe.

    I didn't sleep well last night (ugh) and have a long day and night ahead. Good things, just... a lot.

    Also seem to have a "cashmere" "soft/snuggly" theme going on this week. Donna Karan Black Cashmere for me today.

    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

    Oh no Kewart, I am so sorry your town is flooding. That really sucks, and especially in the winter.

    We have rain here, it's bringing cold but the cold isn't here yet so it's just a nice cool rainy day. Wearing Madhat Piña, a nice cool scent.

    Good afternoon all !. kewart, the news footage from Shrewsbury has been horrendous. I have never seen flooding in the area on such a scale and there doesn't seem to be respite any time soon. You were the first person I thought of and it is a great relief to know that you haven't been deluged.

    Yellow warning for snow here tomorrow !

    Glad you're ok kewart, but l feel for all those affected.

    Jon, l must admit to a feeling of excitement at the thought of snow, but l doubt we'll get much, if any, down here. lt has been lovely to see the sun today, despite the drop in temperature.

    Wearing Vanilla Musk by Ava Luxe this evening, from my sample.
