    Good morning all !. The relentless monsoon continues . The lake in our park has flooded so badly that all the surrounding walkways are impassable. Never seen anything like it before. Trying to tempt the sun into making a rare appearance with Creed - Virgin Island Water.

    We haven't got rain here, Jon.
    Just pale sunlight and quite cold.

    My choice for today is Easy To Love by Eau d'Italie.

    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 everyone , Congrats N. Cal on yet another milestone Today I slept in before having a long breakfast. Later I'm going to see the Billie Holiday-movie with a friend that also loves Billie Holiday. The b. F is away for a week, so I'm planning to start on kniting a sweater. I also have to add I just started kniting, and can't really... But I will give it a shot Sotd is Ta'if. Have a nice day everyone

    Afternoon everyone—

    I decamped to our country place on Thursday, so I’ve been running around since early last week, and not logging my perfume wears, and not posting here, either. I’m now pretty settled in, and City Kitty came with me, so now she’s Country Cat. She loves it here. The BF redid the bedroom here and it looks pretty darn sweet. He bought me a pink sparkly ombré mini Christmas tree last night at the local Walmart, so it’s the first bit of holiday related business I have done.

    We’ve had a few warm days recently, so I’m taking a page from Jon’s book, and wearing Shaal Nur, hoping to attract a cold snap. The BF is wearing Tauer Attar AT in the same spirit. BRING IT

    Hello all,

    I reached way out of my planned rotation for the lovely Chanel Gabrielle. I wanted something light and bright.

    I'm trying to pull myself out of some serious doldrums so I'm going to fake it until I make it.

    I'm wearing Wowilla oil on my legs and a cat on my lap. Gearing up for Part II of housecleaning.

    I've been comparing today 4 versions of Lolita Lempicka apples: EDP pre- and post-2010, Fleur de Minuit 2007 and Elixir Sublime. Wasn't able to test anything else today, as they still smell pretty strong.

    Later will probably apply Sahara Noir or Interlude, I've been missing the incense note lately.

    I found this 10 dolla beauty today at the local Walmart, and shamelessly opened the package to give it a quick sniff. It smells like a fruitier Coco Mademoiselle, minus Chanel’s silky musk and good jasmine. A decent little fruitchouli imo. Here’s a picture, next to the pink ombré tree, with my new rose gold gloves. Hail Walmart!

    If we have any (other, besides me) Tame Impala fans in the house, here’s a treat. They did a Deezer set in the Parc de la Villette next to Paris’s Museum of Science and Industry. I lived in the 19th Arrondissement for a while after college, right around the corner from the Museum,
    and I used to love exploring its fantastic park grounds. My friends and I fantasized about throwing a big party there, with DJs and chill spaces, but it seemed like a pipe dream, at best. If we had managed to do such a thing, today, I would have done it exactly like this, with the big silver Géode in the background. I think this will upload properly.
