    Hello all!

    I am wearing Idylle by Guerlain for a socially-distanced
    walk in our local Quarry Park with a friend.

    Hopefully it won't rain.

    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..."

    Good morning everyone Today is a grey day, but I'm glad to get a break from all the rain we've had lately. Last night it even snowed (it didn't stay on the ground ) Today I was in the mood for Shalimar, so I'm continuing to try drain my old bottle of the edt.

    Vanilla Musk by Ava Luxe this evening, layered over an orange-scented body lotion. l smell like what our American friends call a creamsicle, but over here is fondly known as an Orange Mivvi.

    Quarry, thinking of you.

    I'm wearing Absolue pour le Soir this morning. I have to rake some leaves off the patio and this always smells great outside.

    I'm giving The Different Company Majaina Sin another wear today. It was suffocating in the heat of July; in the cooler weather, it's somewhat better, but it's still a pretty big fragrance, especially for TDC. It's just kind of meh for me. There's some sharp, synthetic note in there I don't care for, but I can't quite figure out what it is.

    Bottom line, I have other vanillas and gourmands I like much better.

    Wrapped in the incense and aldehydes of Chanel No. 22 edt today. I so love this one and I'm saddened to learn it's been replaced. Good thing I have the gigantic bottle.

    I am testing another FiiLiT parfum de voyage this evening -
    Madagasca WAKA.

    Oh dear! This is not for me. There is at least one
    note in here that I find quite repellent and I think it may be ravintsara.
    It smells weirdly medicinal and eucalyptus-like. It is 100% natural but not a
    scent I wish to smell again.

    I really enjoyed their KADO(Japan) the other evening and have ordered a travel.bottle.

    I am enveloped in Dune. I say enveloped because it is radiant and lifts off the skin in a very pleasing way.

    We're spending the morning on the patio. It is so pleasant that I can't move. Bliss.

    Majaina Sin ended up awful. I needed to cover it up with something even bigger, so I sprayed on some Angel Muse. That did the trick.
