    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..."

    Hi all,

    Wearing Il Giglio de Firenze by AbdesSalaam Profumo ( think it’s naturalniche perfumes now ) He really makes beautiful perfumes.

    Mike so sorry to hear what you are going through. My mother suffered from shingles and I know what a painful condition it is. At least pleased to hear you got your medicine before it flared anymore. May you both be ok.

    Think most of us seeing what is happening in the US are both horrified and terrified that this systemic injustice will keep claiming more lives.

    Stay safe all

    Good morning all !. Mike, really sorry to hear about the flare-up but glad you you managed to catch it before things escalated. Take good care of yourself.

    Had a rather unexpected surprise this morning with the delivery of a mystery parcel. Opened it to find a luxurious food hamper containing various sweet and savoury delights. Turned out to be from work as a thank you for commitment during the pandemic. I'm under no illusions as it will have been done randomly with names being drawn out of a hat rather than me being specifically selected. Nevertheless, it was still a very nice gesture, much appreciated

    Mike I understand how you must be feeling right now. Any sentient
    being would naturally be worried at the current situation in the world and
    in the USA right now. I hope your shingles calms down significantly.

    Jon - you got your rain! Don't we all need it right now for the gardens? I have had enough of these
    sticky nights too.

    I am wearing the neon-pink hug that is Tocade.

    Afternoon all, & Happy BN-iversary to shades!

    (((((mike))))) sending you healing vibes & positive thoughts. One of my colleagues has apparently gone down with shingles too, hence l've been asked to do some overtime tomorrow.

    Jon, what a lovely surprise! Are they not sending these to everyone in your workplace?

    lt didn't really get humid here until last night, but now we've got some rain & it's still warm, it feels quite sticky today. And it's very gentle rain, so l'm not sure the garden will benefit that much...

    l've been pottering all morning, but now l'm heading out to run some errands in Olivine.

    (((Hugs))) to all who need them. Had a very rough, sleepless night; just watching the news is starting to feel like it's own form of terror. Sadly, I have people dear to me who are hurting more than I am through these times. But have had as good a morning as possible; even made a friend while deadheading petunias. This guy has been following me around; if this beauty doesn't say "peace & love", I don't know what does. I'll take my small joys where I can find them! Sharing just in case it'll give someone else a bright spot in their day, too.

    CuddleCat, you too!!? How funny! I only bought the 5 ml extrait, though at one point, I considered buying more. Vanille Jolie is great, after all! But when I'm thinking rationally, I know I don't need it, lol. There's a third or so of my collection that won't be replaced, so much I can do without. This AL is so nice, would still recommend -just a victim of my own gluttony, I suppose.

    What a great surprise, JR! No matter how it came about, it was no doubt richly deserved. Enjoy!!

    In Nicolai's Violette in Love, and I do know why I bought this! This one is a keeper, feels very me. Definitely not on the chopping block!

    Best wishes to all.

    MikeP I'm sorry to hear about the shingles but glad you started medication promptly. Hopefully you've stopped it in it's tracks.
    Yes, it's a crazy world out there. Acceptance. Doing my part. Letting go of the rest.

    Hello and best to everyone. ((((Mike)))) so sorry about the shingles. My mother had them and she always said it was the worst pain she’d ever experienced. I hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Jon what a lovely surprise. I’m glad it went to you, so deserving.

    This, often, yes. And sometimes I'm flooded with words after an excess of news stories: fretful/encouraged, disheartened/proud, overwhelmed/inspired, powerless/powerful, but always some degree of anger, frustration and impatience. Feeling the need for a BN group hug. I'm grabbing Shades and Mike first, and then Ima comin' for da rest of ya's.

    Hello all,

    My SOTD is Diptyque Volutes.

    The protesters give me hope, but the other people destroying property and looting do not. Sadly, the two are usually conflated in the media and in the public's mind. Some constructive solutions are beginning to emerge, but would require massive community buy-in and currently there's way too much social and political division for that. Some elected leaders benefit from said division so I'm not too hopeful on a national scale . I am comforted by the expressions of concern on this thread. Thank you.

    Mike, I hope you are feeling better today. Jon, enjoy your goodies! Quarry, hugs back to you.

    I'm wearing Wit today. I've learned that my usual spraying with abandon method backfires with this fragrance. Too much and it becomes overwhelmingly sweet. Three sprays and it's lovely.

    I had a video medical appointment yesterday that was just a total mess. I logged in as directed, but the Dr. could not see that I was in the "room." Got a telephone call from his office, had to log in again. Five minutes into the discussion, his image on my end froze and I had to log in again. Five minutes later, my image froze on his end. He called me and we finished the consultation on the phone. I don't know where the problem was, but in the future I'll ask for phone rather than video if I can't be seen in person.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.
