    Happy birthday, Miss Dalloway!

    The sun is starting to come out today after some rain, I'm wearing Mon Guerlain EDP Intense. The rose & iris in this scent are smelling beautiful in this cool to mild spring weather.

    Take care and hugs to all!

    Parfum

    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..."

    Happy Birthday Mrs. Dalloway!

    Hoping Cook.bot is ok.

    I have just learned that a dear friend from my college days has
    been diagnosed with breast cancer again in her remaining breast.
    She had a mastectomy 5 years ago and now has it on the other side.
    What rotten luck! I feel so sad for her and her partner.

    My SOTD is Herbae by l'Occitane.

    Hello, everyone, happy birthday, Mrs. Dalloway , waving hopefully to cook.bot and sending virtual healing vibes to kewart's friend. Also, Jon, I believe I recognize that beautiful hallway! Weren't we there together many years ago at Penhaligon's?

    Right - SOTD. Haven't posted in a few days, and yesterday wore the Long Lost Perfume version of Tuvache's Tuvara. Today it's Jean Deprez Bal a Versailles.



    Wishing a terrific Thursday to all!

    Bal à Versailles fragrance notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Neroli, Rose de Mai, Lily of the valley, Lilac, Iris, Jasmine, Ylang ylang, Leather, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Civet, Benzoin, Melilot, Tolu balsam.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Thank you for your concern my friends.
    It's always difficult to know what to say when a friend
    is in a dark place. I have sent her a few treats to keep
    her going until her surgery on the 16th October.

    Extremely fortunate to have this in my wardrobe too (not a full bottle but a good 30ml or so). A truly staggering composition that delivers on every level

    Happy birthday to KBF and Mrs. Dalloway! So sorry for your friend Kewart, that is awful news. If it were me I’d be asking for a hysterectomy as well while they are at it, to eliminate any possibility of hormonal triggers.
