    Good morning everyone I woke up to a grey day with pouring showers of snow. I have to work an early shift so I'm seeking comfort in Jaisalmer. Have a nice day everyone

    Good morning!

    Quarry, how are you feeling today?
    I have the feeling that I was sick with covid19 too, in February.
    We supposedly had no cases in Greece then, and I didn't pay much attention.
    No one else in the family got it though, so I am probably wrong.

    I am staying home today, but we need some grocery...


    I am wearing the last drops of my sample of

    De Bachmakov - The Different Company.



    Best wishes to all! <3 <3

    Happy International Fragrance Day everyone! Thank you to all who wished me well. We didn't have "the conversation" yet (or any for the past three days) but will update you all.

    Quarry, hope that things get better for you soon. Stay safe.

    Last night I gave my decant of Bat (the OG) its first wear. It isn't nearly as challenging as I thought it would be, but I find it very pleasant and wearable, plus an accurate tale of a bat. Really fun, interesting fragrance and I'm sad it's discontinued. To compare, today I will wear my sample of the new upcoming Bat.

    My sample of Bat wasn't that long lasting (it was only a small amount), so will switch to La Fille de Berlin now.

    Thank you for your commiseration about the crummy way Air Canada is treating its customers. I can assure you that I will not be booking with them when I reschedule my trip to India. Today I'm wearing nine sprays of Rhubarbe Ecarlate. Take that, Covid-19!

    Please let me know how your situation plays out. I'm about to call my credit card company about two flights I booked for March 14th and a return for March 22nd that I couldn't end up taking. The tickets were already paid for and the airline still hasn't gotten back to my cancellation request and it seems you can only use the money towards another flight within 90 days, which I might not be able to take.

    You've got some heavy hitters in your arsenal, foxbins, and you know how to use them!

    I'm wearing L'Air du Dessert Marocain and trying to be normal, whatever that is. I finally got my wish to be a recluse and find I don't like it that much after all.

    More comfort food cooking and TV binge watching. The advertisements crack me up when they show people shopping, going to parties, taking family trips together in the new SUV, etc. That's so last week!

    I make sure to have a good layer of fragrance free lotion on, and then I apply 5 sprays: 2 to the chest, 2 to the back of my neck (making sure to also spray the underside of my hair), and 1 to my left wrist, dab to the right wrist. I’ve found getting it in my hair is key. Then I can smell it for almost 24 hours.
