    Wearing Ryan's...

    Fields of Provence by Madhat Scents...copying krooze's photo



    This stuff is so awesome. I do have to be careful not to overapply. It's potent.

    Has Ryan (rynegne) been posting, or did I miss his posts?

    Back from a walk and wearing Odalisque.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Hello all,

    My sleeping hours were 4:00 to 10:00 am last night. My schedule is all messed up the last two weeks. I think it's because I'm feeling uneasy.

    Cazaubon, the situation with your neighbor is terrible. I'm so sorry and you're doing the right thing by staying in.

    I'm wearing Tauerville Patch Flash.

    Great choice! Just blind bought this recently and I love it. Can't wait to wear it again, maybe tonight.

    Wish I could find more great deals like this.

    Good to hear your son has recovered, Shycat. What our essential personnel are giving is heroic, I think.

    I plan to raise a glass or 5 tonight in their honor. (Here’s looking at you, teardrop!)

    Post-workout and shower, I’m wearing Parfums Quartana Poppy Soma. Silly marketing premise but interesting fragrance. I have to be in the mood for it, though. It stormed a bit just now, and for some reason, the mood was right.

    Hi, everyone, (((((caz)))), feel better, ClockworkAlice, and I am just so impressed with all the scavenger hunting, blind buying, fragrance testing, sleeping in and other coping mechanisms everyone is adopting... And how FABULOUS everyone smells today (Hey, Cook.bot, I heard from 24Fabourg, you're wearing something pretty great today - what is it again?!? )!!!

    I decided Neil Morris Fragrances Parfum d'Odette needed its own full wearing today. Still gorgeous.




    Spectacular stay-at-home Saturday to all!

    Le Parfum d'Odette fragrance notes: Aldehydes, Green Tea, Honeysuckle, Tuberose, Narcissus, Lilac, Guaiacwood, Musk, Amber.
    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I’m waiting for Poppy Soma to fade a bit because I keep lemming for Oeilleres.

    I pulled the trigger and bought a bottle given its limited run.

    David fell for the new Molecule and Escentric 05s, focuses on Cashmeran.

    Shycat - I am thrilled to hear your son is better + wow I guess now that he's immune to the virus he can work and be around sick people a lot clear-minded now. I can't imagine what it feels like to work in that industry (before the virus or now). I am not that strong of a person, I can admit that.

    tdem1961 - how's your husband feeling?

    cazaubon - we saw a Fire Rescue outside yesterday, in the back alley of our complex. Giancarlo found out from a neighbor that it was someone who lives with their older mother and she was having symptoms of the virus so they actually sent paramedics over to give her a test for the virus. I didn't know they did that - but apparently they do.

    Then today, coming back from a drive, I couldn't re-enter the apartment complex - there was a police blocking both entrances. Apparently some burglar jumped the fence into our neighborhood and they were searching for him. Then an ambulance showed up. Apparently they shot the person and the ambulance was taking him off to jail. Like...this has never happened since I lived here. We have full time security here so I don't ever worry - but it was jarring and confusing. I am not going to let this make me anxious - I'm accepting and calm about it now. I gave Giancarlo a big hug when I got back in the apartment. Sigh

    I can still smell this morning's Madhat (like I said above...this stuff LASTS), so I'll take an epsom salt bath later (Cross Fit has my muscles sore) and probably wear this, since it's one of my new decants that I adore:

    Thank you for all your kind words, I am feeling quite anxious but managed to wear some LADDM today. Taking my anxiety meds and going to bed.
