    Une Rose for today! I love a lot of Malles, but this is my favorite.
    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

    Hello all,

    I'm wearing Cuir Impertinent again today.

    I lost sleep last night due to a contentious homeowners meeting which culminated in threats of a lawsuit. I had all night to reflect on my involvement in the situation and decided to responsibly withdraw from the drama. Joint ownership of Common Area is great in concept but can be horrible in reality when there aren't shared values. So sad, but the birds, bees, and butterflies just go merrily along with their lives.

    I had plans today after work that cancelled at the last minute...so I had to force myself to get out of the bad mood that started to form.

    I took a nice bath (every week I take a bath with a half cup of bleach in it...for sanitizing properties...sort of like a cholorine pool rinse for the skin). But the smell of bleach is so strong - even a half cup in a whole bathtub is strongly smelling of bleach. So I always spray a strongly scented fragrance in the air above the filled tub - to kill the smell. Today's choice happens to be my SOTE (I can still smell it):

    Thanks again for the kind words everyone. We're celebrating our 3 year anniversary this evening after a long work day and officially announcing baby news to everyone. I made a nice skirt steak marinaded in soy, garlic and minced onion...grilled over a bed of rice. Tonight I'll wear some Montblanc Legand, which is her favorite. We'll dance to Jesse Ware - "Until the End of Time" which is our wedding song...listen to it if you haven't heard it!

    Hope you all had a great day and nice to meet some of you i haven't met yet

    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Our air quality finally improved for the first time today. We also saw sunlight as well as a bright clear blue sky. Hopefully you'll see this soon enough.

    That sample pile was truly unforgettable! What a nice day. It'd be nice to go back to those days where you can hang in a close group, get to know each other and hug goodbye :-( one day soon hopefully.

    Trilby, those threats weren't against you, l hope?

    mike, bathing in bleach sounds a bit extreme, & quite worrying. Have you thought about using eucalyptus oil instead?

    Glad to hear the air is clearing at last for those of you affected by all that smoke!

    Happy anniversary to Mr & Mrs Ryan!

    Not against me personally, teardrop. Another member is unhappy with his treatment by the HOA regarding a fence request (similar to mine) and was threatening suit against the association and certain officers. However, I and other members would have to pay to defend through our dues.
