    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Saturday, 8th August, 2020

    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..."

    Idylle edt.

    We seem to have missed the intense heat elsewhere in the south
    of England and this morning it's cloudy and dull outside. It did manage
    to get up to 29 degrees yesterday afternoon but only between the cloud
    covering.

    Afternoon all!

    l have the weekend off, & it's still very hot & humid here. Cloudy too, but l'm still going to spend the rest of the afternoon on the sunlounger. l might even manage a nap, not having slept too well last night after a tough week at work.

    No perfume yet. I'm situated under the hackberry trying to avoid the morning sun and taking advantage of a cool breeze. Wish you were all here with me in this comfortable environment. I was supposed to be going for a pre-surgery covid test at this time, but the hospital ran out of testing supplies mid-week. So, we're skipping that step. Medical personnel are just supposed to double down on PPEs to make up for untested patients. So much for "if you need a test, you can get a test" -- like that was ever the case.

    Wanted to comment on some of your late-day posts of yesters. ExtremeK, I am attracted to pink flowers, and those lilies are gorgeous. The imagined scent of those beauties and the certain charm of your new townhouse's entry floor create a fantasy of pure elegance. And I am certain you cackled and laughed like that parrot when you discovered the pump on your ebay treasure had never been primed. We share in your thrill, and we're all given hopes of finding such rarities.

    Lemonlimelady, thank you for telling us about your meet-up. I pine for the day when we can do more in-person sniffing and sharing. Photos of piles of swapped samples are as confetti after a party -- they tell of a very good time had by all.

    ClockworkAlice, I noticed that our fearless leader, Grant, posted an article about taking BN offline for a short time to upgrade the https on the 14th. He mentioned that having his children home during the pandemic has taken a significant bite out of his BN service time. I expect that is what's slowed down the release of your reviews. I love how you write -- choosing just the right words, being clear and easy to follow, and casting no pretentious airs. You're one of BN's newest stars, and I look forward to your observations wherever/whenever they post.

    (((Quarry))) I actually WHOOPED when I depressed the sprayer only to discover it needed priming. David thought I had dropped the bottle. How do you feel about not taking the pre-surgery test? Thinking about you lots, especially as I start considering possible container plantings for autumn. WWQD is one of my mantras. I really wish for a meet-up, too. Last May's get-together was wonderful. Every 30 minutes or so, I found myself wishing for more time together.

    teardrop, good for you! An afternoon lounging in the sun sounds pretty good! And you smell fab, of course.

    I'm sampling Parle Moi de Parfum Gardens of India this morning. Jasmine, tuberose, and sandalwood. Think Amouage Love Tuberose but not as sweet, more balanced, and a tad more restrained.

    I'll be heading into work the 2nd shift in a couple of hours. Since returning to work after a 2 month furlough, I've been sharing more & more fragrances with my coworkers and residents. It really brings smiles to our faces & that means the world to me. Instead of physical hugs, I share fragrant ones.

    Today's "hug" will be Chanel Cristalle edp, which I prefer over the more popular & more austere edt. The jasmine in the edp just "does it" for me.
    Small decisions, made consistently, have huge impacts. Think about what you do, be mindful of the results. Accept responsibility for your choices & do not blame others for your behavior. I speak for myself.

    Another day in Guerlain Insolence.

    Last night, we had our son and his spouse over for a socially-distanced birthday dinner for Mr. Lark. Each couple dined outdoors at their own 6' table, spaced apart. We hadn't met in person for a couple of months and being with my family again brought joy to my heart!

    Still incredibly hot & humid here. The sun came out, but l mostly stayed under the beach umbrella today. After a cool shower, l needed Philosykos again this evening.

    Hello, everyone—

    Another hot day on the way here. I have the fridge, and the cabinet, stocked with cold food and pantry items. After a couple of days of denying summer, I’m turning my face back to the sun.

    One thing ClockworkAlice could do is upgrade to BN PLUS, reviews would be uploaded instantly upon submission. There's a few other perks to having the subscription as well. It's great way to give and support the BN community.
