    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 morning! Wearing Aqua Allegoria Passiflora today, and I also sprayed Aqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg over my shirt, too.
    It's going to be a very busy day at work for me. And it seems like a very busy month, too. Wishing you a good week!

    Good morning all !. Very nice feeling not having to think about work this week . Will be out and about early making the most of the cool and bright conditions followed by an alfresco lunch to celebrate my parents' wedding anniversary. Looks like the latter part of the week will be a sedate affair because the horrendous heat / humidity of last Friday will be back with a vengeance and this time it won't just be for one day

    Enjoy your week off, Jon, despite the heat that is forecast.

    I am craving green, herbal scents at the moment so my
    choice today is Herbae by L'Occitane.

    Azzurro di Capri by Bruno Acampora

    With Dora wearing the Flowers of Capri and me wearing the Blue Water of Capri, we've pretty much got that island covered.

    The outer rainbands of Tropcal Storm Isaias are just now brushing us, but it doesn't look like the storm is going to create much havoc here.

    Have a terrific week of rest, relaxation, and anything that brings you happiness, Jon And Happy Anniversary to parents!

    Roberto, you smell *wonderful* today!

    I’m glad you’re enjoying The Constant, Quarry. I’m going to check out the one you mentioned!

    1000 squats in a single exercise session??!! Holy cow, Mike! That’s pretty incredible. My legs hurt just thinking about that!

    We watched Hamilton on Disney+ last night. I hadn’t seen it live yet, and I really enjoyed it.

    I’m still trying to figure out what fragrance I want to wear. Maybe a sample of something.

    Hello, everyone, and Jon, I hope you have a fantastic vacation (heat/humidity notwithstanding) and a very happy anniversary to your parents!

    Giving a test-drive to Imaginary Authors Telegrama. The teak and the sharp/bitter aspect of the lavender really jumped out at first on my skin, now it's shifting to the sweet bit of lavender and talc, with just hints of woody sharpness that I always associate with old-school furniture polish -- Overall, the drydown is hitting me much more like a typical fougere. Still sniffing a bit obsessively, though.



    Masks up Monday, friends!

    Telegrama fragrance notes: Talc, Lavender absolute, Black pepper, Teak, Amyris, Vanilla powder, Fresh linens.
    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 Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    More greetings for that handsome couple from me, Jon.

    The high today is predicted to be 64°F/18°C!!! It's overcast, too, so really comfortable. I don't think I've ever made beef stew in August before, but that's today's lunch, along with a fresh-from-the-garden cucumber salad. This fall-like weather has me reaching for CdG Jaisalmer. Incense during the hilt of summer. Huh.
    I get by with a little help from my (((friends))).

    Oh, just hush.

    But I guess it's all a trade-off. We slog through air like Jell-O all summer and you slog through snow all winter.

    There is one big difference, though: you can always put on more clothes to get warmer, but....

    I applied some Bortnikoff Musk Khabib, a really gorgeous modern floral chypre, where the musk isn't growly but purring and serves to warm up the florals. Just gorgeous.

    Hello all,

    I'm wearing Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe. This was an old favorite from around 2006 and it was discontinued for a long time. I searched high and low for it and almost turned to a dupe company to re-create it. I recently discovered it is now available on the Jo Malone website as a selection in their Archive Collection. Dreams do come true! I wish more discontinued treasures would be reissued by other houses too.

    Have a good day.
