    Happy birthday, kewart!!!
    Have a great day!

    I'm wearing Aqua Allegoria Passiflora for the third day in a row. The dent in my travel bottle doesn't seem to get bigger despite me using at least 7 or 8 sprays of it. Well, Guerlain travel sprayers shoot out very little, so it's more like 3 sprays from the normal bottle. I like it this way though.

    Happy, happy birthday, dear kewart , and congrats to Ryan!!

    Spritz and dash for me today, going in to my (socially distanced/masked) office today. 25% capacity on any given day...

    I'm smelling fabulous, however, in Rogue Perfumery Ishtar. Familiar notes, put together in a most delightful way.



    Wickedly good Wednesday, everyone!

    Reveling in a new arrival this afternoon. L'Arte Di Gucci - dark and gothic leather / patchouli / rose with a just a hint of something lascivious lurking in the background. Absolutely stunning and very appropriately named, IMO. How unfortunate that a house capable of this has descended into such mediocrity in recent years.

    Enjoy your new Gucci Jon. That bottle is so 80's - I love it


    Wearing the last drops of my decant of this:

    Bat (original formulation) by Zoologist Perfumes



    Banana! That sweet note perfectly balances the dirt and dusty/dank notes. I love it! I am going to try to get more of the original or maybe I'll get a decant of the re-issue of this from Olympic Orchids.

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, Kewart!
    Congratulations and enjoy your new treasure, Jon!

    We stole away to Cape May NJ for a couple of days. A consolation prize as we had planned, pre-COVID, to be in Paris this week. Not the same but it’s peaceful here, and I’m gratified and comforted to see social distancing and mask wearing in full effect.

    SOTD is Nobile 1942 Cafe Chantant. Take care, all.

    Dang, I hate hearing this! I was so looking forward to a vetiver and hazelnut masculine from Caron. Quelle dommage.

    Kewart, wishing you the best of birthdays!

    Kewart, birthday wishes winging their way to you!

    I feel better today but have a headache that's hung on for a few days now. Wish the air would clear. I'm wearing Kyoto and thinking I might get take out for dinner since I have no desire to cook--I just cleaned the kitchen.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Congrats on your new treasure, Jon!

    tdem, enjoy your break!

    After enjoying a couple more hours in the sunshine & taking a shower, l'm wearing Montale's Orange Flowers & about to make moussaka, to make up in some small way for not being in Greece this week.

    Happy Birthday, kewart! What a lovely time of year for a birthday! I’m sending full support and encouragement to enjoy it fully

    Jon, my goodness, that is just beautiful! I can’t believe all of the vintage treasures you’ve been able to track down recently. I am so impressed with your sleuthing skills! I’ll bet LAdG smells as fabulous as that bottle looks. Congrats!

    Foxbins, any improvement in air quality yet? I can’t imagine the cabin fever you must be experiencing. I’m sending up daily wishes for an unexpected September rain shower for Oregon.

    I am smelling amazingly woody, a little sweet, and slightly scorched in Olympic Orchids Woodcut. I have a feeling this is my next FB purchase. Or Interlude Man for David, which smells *amazing* on him.
