    Today's the beginning of a week long heat spell, 35-36 C is what is projected for today.

    Long story short, Guerlain Djedi may be one of my most favorite Guerlains that I've smelled to date it's that good.

    Going with Guerlain Sous Le Vent

    Thanks for the feedback on Djedi, NCal.
    Glad you liked it so much. Is it widely available?

    It's pleasantly sunny here but quite chilly still. I need
    to do some pruning and weeding in the garden later.

    My SOTD is Vanille Fatale by TF.

    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..."

    N Cal Frag Reviewer - I sampled Djedi once also. Incredibly good. I loved it also + I've always wanted more to wear.

    teardrop I hope you had a good vacation. Yesterday's restaurant I visited is called Astra (link here) had a Greek theme, beautiful rooftop bar, beautiful people - I felt like I was in Europe and it made me think of you and your postponed trip to Greece. αυτή είναι η ζωή


    I'm a bit foggy today from all of the cocktails yesterday but I'm up and at 'em with some cold brew coffee and I'll head to get groceries and take a nice morning walk soon in a big cloud of:

    Ineespenes, I am so sorry for your loss, what a terrible shock.

    Another summer-like day here, going for the last ice cream of the season at my favourite shop, and trying to organize and declutter my decanting materials for the upcoming move. I am such a hoarder of these things it’s hard for me to throw stuff away that’s perfectly useful, but when you are paying by the kilo, it all counts. Sigh.

    Thanks, mike! Yes l did enjoy my time off, but a part of me is sad not to have spent any time in my beloved Greece this year. That looks like my kind of place, though. Thanks for thinking of me. Ti na kanoume?

    (((Ine))), I am so very sorry. My sincere condolences to you and your boyfriend on the loss of your friend.

    A morning storm, some rain, and gray skies are paving the way for cooler temperatures here next week, in the 50s and 60s. Proper sweater and fleece weather at last.

    I wore my itty bitty sample of vintage Joy parfum this morning. It's lovely, and I'm very glad to have smelled it, but it's not really me. I'm finding that my preferred "vintages" are from the 70s and 80s. Probably not surprising.

    I think I'll switch things up to some vintage Halston.

    Ineespenes, I'm so sorry. That's just tragic for all of you.

    After two inches of much needed rain the past few days, today is sunny and cool. I'm wearing Impossible Iris. Yesterday I put a deposit on a male Ragdoll kitten. Bertie Wooster is still here, but his cancer as moved to the intermediate stage. I thought having some overlap between the old and the new would be good. The kitten won't arrive for another month or so but I can look at pictures of him on Instagram.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.
