    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!
    I drained the last drops of my sample of Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia this morning.
    It's a beautiful day that's both sunny and foggy at once. I like autumn days like this.

    Same here on both counts


    As the working week commences there seems to be little evidence of any lockdown here with most people going about their business as usual. Why am I not surprised ?

    Hello and best to everyone. Jon it’s so frustrating. The numbers are going up here as well. Those who don’t comply just don’t get it-the longer they don’t, the longer this misery will continue.

    Samsara Shine today. As flankers go, I prefer Un Air de Samsara for successfully integrating a twist of mint into the original. Shine is almost identical to the original with a bit of tangy red fruits added. It’s less unusual than Un Air but nice for the Guerlain completist to try.

    Wish you all a good start to your week.

    Hearing Teardrop mention the word "dreich" to describe the weather today
    made me think of one of our regular posters, who hasn't been seen on here for a
    while - Foustie. Hope she's ok.

    I am wearing Visa and have just returned from a visit to the dentist. All good but
    I need a scale and polish next week.

    Such a good word. I just learned I've been mispronouncing it, saying "dry-sh" when it's actually "dreek", with that Scottish rolled "r".

    It's rather dreich here too, but I just received an antidote in the mail yesterday: a new (old) bottle of Yendi by Capucci, and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. A softly fizzy bright green with some peach, all on a Chanel-like sandalwood base. Just lovely.
