    Bright and breezy just about sums it up here too.

    We are trying to establish a wildflower patch up the
    bank in our back garden.My husband dug over the waste ground and
    I cleared all the weeds and grew wildflower seedlings in trays, which have
    now been planted out in situ .Hopefully they will establish themselves and
    keep coming back each year.

    pronounces this as Lockietaine!)

    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..."

    Happy, happy 10 year BN-versary to ExtremeK! I should have remembered this yesterday; I do know darn well we joined at the same time! You've brought us joy, friendship, awesome recommendations (both of the wearable and drinkable varieties) and lots and lots of giggles! So excited to spend another 10 years with you!

    For the mask wearers, sometime wearers and not wearers, here is the graphic I spoke of yesterday. This is in no way meant to shame anyone; it's intended to help assess risk in any given situation. For example, I personally am in the "sometimes" group. I've now been with my family and my social group; no masks and we had no spread. There's a small convenience store near my house which I visit often and do not mask up. I'm also in a state that's had a very slow and cautious re-opening, with cases remaining steady to somewhat declining, from day to day. Now if I were working, I'd be requiring masks for myself and clients, and I wouldn't be accepting any new clients-just the regulars-and I'd be offering haircuts only. Some of my decision making has to do with the fact that I do need to be around elderly family members. We all must take the initiative in assessing our own risk and an informed decision is always the best bet. Some calculated risk can be good; recklessness is something else entirely.

    Note the "1,5" on the last face; obviously that's supposed to be 1.5. The beauty industry is not known for its spelling and grammar. Again, no judgment from me; this is purely intended to help. I love the simplicity of this graphic; no rhetoric from any party getting in the way of facts.

    Hope everyone has a good day! Off to weed the veggie garden in Bvlgari au The Vert.

    Thank you, NCal and PerfumedLady! I can't believe it's been 10 years already. When you really enjoy something -- and someones! -- time really does fly by! This community is wonderful.

    I'm wearing Sale Gosse today, another of my purchases from last year's fantastic Chicago meet-up.

    Talking of masks, I thought they were supposed to be compulsory now on public transport in the UK ?. I counted eight people in the space of about five minutes on buses this afternoon without one. I'd better leave it there before the four letter words begin to flow

    I'm wearing Kerosene Copper Skies, which I purchased at your recommendation in Chicago. No lie, I put it on before I knew it was your anniversary and that you are wearing Sal Gosse, which you purchased in my presence. You're a perfume whisperer and I love Copper Skies. Happy BN anniversary!

    Happy BNniversary to ExtremeK!

    You smell great Jon. Today we are getting a temporary reprieve, only 30C, but the blast furnace will be cranking up again tomorrow, back to 34C (40C including humidex). Environment Canada promised us a hot summer and they are delivering!

    Happy BNversary, ExtremeK!

    I'm in kai oil. Feeling a bit chipper today--my neighbors, BFF and hubby use my pool at will during "these uncertain times" since it's private. They brought their Chinese Crested dog to swim in a life jacket and they weren't just trying to make me laugh.

    SOTD is Magenta Pop, which is one of four recent blind buys from Strangers Perfumery, and oh wow, I love it so much!
    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage
