    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 all !. Happy Birthday Kagey

    Sending best wishes to Quarry who is scheduled to have her final round of chemo today.

    Cook.bot, what a rude awakening !. Relieved to hear it got sorted in the end. Hope everything went OK with the doctor.

    Shycat, all the very best for a speedy recovery.

    Woah, turned my back and everyone is getting beat up.

    Kewart, everyone is wishing for you a quick healing, I will add my wish for an attractive pirate scar, and tell you do not worry - they took my finger apart and the scar now is just a little line, it looks good. But I am mad right along with you - dermatologists in Florida are so quick with the knife, if you even say "I am a little worried about.." they chop whatever it is right off before you even finish speaking and send it for biopsy.

    Cook-bot, that is the worst alarm ever. I am so sorry. But glad that the hardware was looking out for you as you slept.

    Working at home, in Mure et Musc Extreme, it's still summery here.

    Waiting to vote on election day.

    Hi, everyone , happy belated BN-iversary to hednic and happy birthday, Kagey!

    Trying to catch up on the thread... N.Cal, I noticed your Djedi wearing over the weekend - Jealous in a good way! You come sit right by me and wave your wrists under my nose, please. If I ever win the lottery (though of course that would require that I play the lottery), I hope to track down a bottle from some estate sale or something...

    My goodness, we are a band of extremely wild experiences and emotional states here on BN these days - And I definitely include myself in the latter! Someone asked me over the weekend how I was managing, and I said I'm trying to do all the right things, but constantly feel like I'm half-a-setback from a total meltdown. Special shout-out to ((((Quarry))) - May the final chemo put you firmly on the side of better health, and may any side-effects dissipate quickly! And Cook.bot, your shocking (literally) wake-up must've been... well, shocking. Interesting side note - after reading your story, I was scrolling through the entries and read cabauzon's SOTD post as "Southern Boom." Glad your equipment did its job, though. Wishing Shycat speedy healing of all sorts and a good pharmacologist and continued, scar-erasing healing to kewart. Hugs for everyone. Just 'cause.

    Doing a multi-day lemming (thanks for the inspo, ExtremeK! Also for reminding me of the term "dumpster fire" and its perfect appropriateness to describe 2020) of several spectacular BN-ers today in Givenchy Organza Indécence.



    I do enjoy this, but on me - at least for awhile - I pick up a slightly rotting melon note that jars me. Huh. Skin chemistry is weird.

    Take advantage of every moment of your Tuesday, folks!

    Organza Indécence fragrance notes: Cinnamon, Jacara Wood, Patchouli, Musk, Amber.
    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

    Dumpster fire on top of a train wreck. The universe can just take 2020 and stick it right up its Uranus as far as I'm concerned.

    Whoa -- now I must try Indecence. I'm a sucker for a rotten melon note.

    This is a scene from "American Hustle" where Jennifer Lawrence tries to explain the attraction of a garbage-y note in perfumes. She's talking about nail polish, but the filmmaker said they were thinking of Diorella when they wrote the scene. "Flowers, but with garbage."



    I think I'll lemming on Jon today. I haven't worn my Mitsouko in years, and a cool, clear fall day might be perfect for taking it out for a little ride. (Not that I'm going anywhere....)

    Hello all,

    It's Alien today.

    Well, interesting times here in Orange County over the last 24 hours. The high winds fueled a massive fire and 100,000 residents have been evacuated, including my son. Schools where my husband and son teach are closed and my doctor appointment was cancelled. Yesterday I went up to a nearby viewpoint in the foothills to observe the fire. Lots of smoke and visible flames. Every time the wind gusted the flames would shoot up and then spread. I just thought I'd provide you all with some local color from my area.

    Have a good day.
