    Morning all,

    Sending out healing vibes to our PM today. Leaving politics aside, l've always found Boris's energy & optimism engaging, & right now we need that kind of leadership. Hoping fervently that he pulls through.

    l'm working three 9-5 shifts back to back this week. Today l'm wearing the sunny & uplifting Le Chevrefeuille.

    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..."

    Get well, Boris, because you can come out of this with wisdom and advice that will positively influence others, plus you have a child on the way.

    The latest unexpected quirk of the pandemic, I guess: Receiving unordered, unpaid-for merchandise from Amazon. It happened to me today and to one of DD's friends last week. There's no record of this order in my account, yet the package was labeled to me. I didn't need a kitchen scale, but there it is. Next time I hope they mistakenly send perfume.

    I'm smelling rich today with florals thanks to the rare Sabi parfum. All this Jasmin Antique talk got me rooting around for it.

    Hello everyone!

    Wearing a sample that was gifted to me from my buddy cestrum nocturnum that I am just now getting around to wearing:

    Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna




    I liked the original Truth Or Dare, a real tuberose bomb but done well..almost like the Lauder one (Private Collection T&G) but a tiny bit more exotic. It was niche-quality. But I must admit I do not like this one - it's much more 'synth woods' and veers much more into feminine musk territory. I think I will give the rest of this sample to my partner's mom...this smells like something she will love. If you're a woman and you like woody/orientals you might want to check this out anyway. I'm reminded of the self titled fragrance from Rem Acra. Also this fragrance is super cheap online. Just not for me. OH and side note: If you Google "Truth or Dare Naked" you definitely will NOT get pictures of the perfume! NSFW, in case you wondered lol.


    Paradeiserl - I love Purple Water - its been ages since I've smelled it. Enjoy!
    Quarry - wow...I don't think I've ever received something from Amazon I didn't order. Interesting.
