    Good morning! Monday again.
    I'm wearing Alaia Nude today and I plan it to wear it this week until Friday Synch (Vetiver this Friday!). I like this scent a lot. It doesn't even try to smell natural, but it's super cozy and I can't get enough of it. Some of the CdG Incense: Avignon that I sampled yesterday is still shining through, and it's a beautiful combination. Loved Avignon so much.

    Wishing all of you a good week. Ineespenes, stay strong coming back to work again!
    Quarry, get at least a little bit better each day. Hugs.

    It seems around, and at reasonable prices. I tend not to blind buy these days, but it sounds nice.

    Morning all!

    Planning a bit more housework this morning, before spending what's likely to be my last afternoon of the year on the sunlounger. Wearing Ensoleille Moi to mark the occasion.

    Wow - what a lovely homecoming to all those birthday wishes!
    Thank you all so much.

    We got back late on Saturday after driving up through France for three days
    from the South, passing through Burgundy, Reims (magnificent cathe
    dra)l and Calais (Wissant). It is cooler here but my garden seems to have
    survived and we have lots of tomatoes, raspberries and squash to enjoy. They
    seem to have thrived on neglect.

    My SOTD is Miss Dior (the new rose one) from a sample.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    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..."

    Hello and best to everyone. Back from a lovely getaway down in Cape May NJ. Our B&B was directly across the road from the beach and we kept our windows open to the scent and sound of the ocean waves. The weather allowed for us to sit on the beach each day. We enjoyed an afternoon tasting at the wonderful Cape May winery and brought home several bottles of their fine Chardonnay, Riesling, and a delicious apple wine. Nightly seafood dinners completed the picture.

    Wearing vintage Lauren today. Wish you all a great start to your week. Xo

    I enjoyed reading about people's various end of summer rituals on this thread. Even though we'll probably have five more weeks of warm, even hot, weather here there are cooler mornings and evenings and occasional little breezes that hint at autumn. It's been a brutal year in so many ways (not just weather) and I'm looking forward to a change, any change, even if it's just a change in season.

    I'm wearing Patchouli Nobile today.

    Take care, all, and have a good day.

    Yes still summer here too Trilby - but ever so often, early morning, I feel a cool breeze here and there.

    I can still smell a tiny bit of my wearing of T. Rex by Zoologist yesterday (I wore it to the movies - we saw "Tenet"...what an awesome movie!). The combo of the far-off-smoky-burning wood/incense mixed with this scent is quite good.

    Salutations, everyone, from a warm & cloudy morning,

    I’m reading everyone’s posts, and feeling a little jealous, of the cool weather they’re enjoying. It is still weeks away from us. There is some consolation, days are shorter, and evenings are growing longer.

    I’m wearing Acqua di Parma Colonia. I never noticed how present and persistent its patchouli is. I may not need to replace my Diorella, as soon as I initially thought I would.

    Tdem, your getaway sounds wonderful! Quick adventures feel so good in 2020, don't they? I'm craving seafood now.

    Have a good day, everyone!
