    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..."

    Morning all!

    l have this week off, & my plan is to spend a couple of hours each morning working on my studies, then getting other things like spring-cleaning done in the afternoons. l'm sure l'll find time for some relaxation as well!

    Wearing my "studying scent", Smuggler's Soul, to get me in the mood. How it reminds me of those heady days spent in the University classroom!

    Hello, and best to everyone!

    Enjoy your time off, teardrop! I was interested to see that the BN Robot alerted us to "Apple Day" and included some fragrances with apple notes. I always did like DKNY Be Delicious, though not enough to buy a bottle.

    My SOTD is Serge Lutens Chergui.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Teardrop, have a nice week off and good luck on your studies! It's fun that you have a studying scent.

    Kewart, good luck and have fun painting the door! What colour did you choose?

    Sunnyfunny
    , I like Organza a lot. But yes, it can be very loud sometimes!

    Today I'm layering Black Opium with Shalimar Cologne. It's an unexpected combo, but they do fit well together.

    Well speaking of not quiet, I'm in Angel today.

    Hope everyone is holding up. It's been cold here (I would say unseasonably, but that is not right - it is colder than usual though) and I am somewhat concerned we may have an honest to god hard freeze, which would kill my wee watermelon seedlings. I wanted them to be ready before it gets really rainy here, and they have a long runway, and usually it's not quite this cold! Can't bring them inside as the cats and dog will certainly eat them or dig them up.

    Yes, Robin, it's been unusually cold here in Southern California this year as well. I hope your plants don't freeze.

    Good morning. After two false starts and some scrubbing, it is Serge Lutens Sarrasins in all its jammy jasmine-y glory.

    Pascal Morabito Or Black, from a mini. Last week I ordered a full bottle from France and am so eager for it to arrive. This is actually a bit more masculine than I'm usually comfortable with, but it's so marvelous I just don't care. Its leather, violets and heavy oakmoss make it smell like a cross between Le Troisieme Homme and Jolie Madame.

    It's a winter wonderland here, quite unusual to see the ground whited out. We have only about 2 inches so far--small amount for many of you, but a once a year event for Tennessee.

    I spent my morning with my binoculars watching my backyard birds tussle over sunflower seeds and peanuts. Rose Essentielle is getting another day's wear from me. It feels soft, soothing, and optimistic to me.

    That sounds lovely.

    I needed a serenity scent. Struggling with recurrent issues related to the surgeries. These should be over-comable, but they've been dogging me for days. Bulgari Au Thé Blanc is the serenity scent for me. No good on my skin, but meditation-inducing on my cuffs.

    One could easily switch this out for Norne by Slumberhouse and be happy with the (more affordable) replacement.
