    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..."

    Good (late) morning.

    I had a curry last night for my husband's birthday and
    it resulted in my having a very disturbed night complete with
    vivid dreams. I didn't wake up until 9.30!!

    I have just about come round after two cups of coffee and an
    exercise session so will wear Mauboussin.

    Afternoon all!

    l have a week off, & the weather has improved, although there's still a little too much cloud around for sunbathing. l'll be pottering in the garden shortly however in Golden Paradise.

    My SOTD is Timbuktu. I'm getting low so may need to replenish.

    I forgot to post yesterday. I was not in Sync but I wore the new Moss Cologne by Bortnikoff (from a sample) all day. Not sure if it's what I was looking for - there are other much more interesting moss fragrances out there. Let's see how repeated wearings go.

    Today I woke up early, worked out and picked up a 'free' office chair from a Realtor in my office who's closing his retail location and starting to WFH. I needed another new chair (the one I was gifted recently is not comfortable) so now I think I can move my home office from where it is to another location in the apartment. Me and Giancarlo are going to IKEA now to see what we can find.

    Wearing a sample that was gifted to me in Chicago (@ the BN meetup):

    Hermessence Epice Marine by Hermes



    One of the very few aquatics that I can enjoy. It's like an aquatic-Declaration done in the Hermes-minimal-style that JC Ellena is known for.

    Hello, and best to everyone,

    It’s hot at h-e-doublehockeysticks here, and neither the boyfriend nor I can breathe comfortably, due to all the allergy problems I have already kvetched about, elsewhere.

    I’m waiting for a quiche to cool enough to eat something. I also made drop biscuits—unformed scones, kind of, for the Anglo, Irish, Scots, Aussie, New Zealand, and probably European and Asian people. I’m feeling pretty cool myself, in Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamon. Something about Cardamom has delicious air conditioning effect. It is going to be, at least, 100 degrees outside every day this week. I desperately want to head out to our beautiful lake (just a couple of minutes by car, 15 by bike), but I’m not risking accidental exposure. Same goes for the public pool. Too many people and children running around unmasked, with no regard for social distancing. Maybe it’s time we looked into one of those freestanding pools for the yard. Like the one Carl the neighbor has, on Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
