    Wishing CapriDog a very happy Birthday.

    What to wear on a freezing cold day? I just
    bought a 10ml bottle of vintage Diorissimo so may try
    that out today. Hopefuly it will still smell good after
    all this time.

    It's in a houndstooth box with the pink circle and band
    on it. Anyone know when this would date from please?

    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 and best to everyone. Happy birthday, Capri Dog!

    Kewart, congratulations. The best way to date your new treasure is by the batch code. Hope the info in the link helps:

    Have a great one, CapriDog!

    I'm sitting in my leather recliner smelling the leather/pineapple goodness of VIP Room Signature (released in 2005, five years ahead of pineapple-famed Aventus, just sayin'). Listening to a bit of Baroque and doing a coloring book for the first time in over 50 years thanks to a clever and magnanimous (((friend)))

    Dior batch codes pre-1990s can be very confusing. Because the scent name is printed above the Dior name on the box and bottle, I'd say 1980s for yours, Kewart. Prior to that, the house name appeared above the scent name.

    Examples -- 1970s in the middle:

    Thanks tdem. I will have to do a bit of research using your
    link.
    I think it's before 1990 at the very least.It didn't come in a cellophane
    wrapper so that makes it harder to date. The actual box has a ref.164 077
    whatever that means and vente interdite not for sale so presumably a
    free sample.

    Morning all,

    I woke up, and checked the weather to find out how much I need to layer up to walk the dog, and there is snow pouring down from every direction, a real love blizzard. We get snow here every winter, but rarely with this kind of density. I made a little breakfast and I’m back in bed wearing Spiriteuse Double Vanille, because if there were ever a day for SDV, this is it.

    SOTA for tango, de facto and despite the Maderas do Oriente application, is Evyan White Shoulders, that drugstore damsel, in powder form, on account of my dusting the floor and the soles of my shoes and/or bare feet with it. My nose now associates White Shoulders with tango. I may have to scare up the bottled version.

    I went on an urban hike in Atlanta this morning, hiking on the bike trails and wooded areas around Emory University. I surprised a Great Blue Heron lakeside, and got a chance for a fairly close look until it decided to move on. I used to live in the area 30+ years ago, so it was nice to return.

    Twins with cello in Santl today. I regret that I didn't buy the biggest bottle now. It has aged beautifully. Yesterday's tortillas came out really well after I burnt the first one and turned down the heat. The only problem is they require a measure of forethought, and my meal planning often begins at 5:30 pm, standing in front of the refrigerator, saying, "What should I have for dinner?"
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.
