    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..."

    I've just had a phone call from the vets and our kitty has made it through the procedure and we can pick her up in about 3 hours. It is good news, they froze the cancer spots - no cutting and removal needed. While she was under anesthetic, they also clean her teeth and two teeth needed extraction so she is going to have a very sore nose and mouth as they heal. She needs to wear a head cone for 10 days, that is going to be an interesting experience. Our already pampered cuddle cat is going to be even more pampered - if that is possible!

    Today, I'm wearing LPRN Couture by Guerlain which is one of two scents that I keep around to wear during difficult times.

    Hugs to all and Quarry, I hope things are a little bit better for you today!

    CuddleCat, I'm glad to read the Original Cuddle Cat endured the procedures well. Best luck for the kitty. Those lamp cones aren't fun.

    Hugs and healing vibes to everyone in need of them.

    I am traveling to office in Guilty Absolute, and my scarf still smells of Meharees. I hope it will be a good day.

    CuddleCat, glad it went well! Best wishes to your kitty for a swift recovery.

    Thanks, N.CAL!

    lt's milder here now but of course that means it's raining. l'm trying my free sample of Mona di Orio's Musc today. lt's a bit "meh", to be honest.

    Quarry - handling each day, at a time, is definitely a good idea. Not only for this temporary health craziness in your life now, but overall even after that. It's easier said than done - but then again, what's the alternative? I have been fighting some very minor health issues myself and I can either be angry, defiant and in the past/future (a.k.a. "Hell!") or I can use this as a 'spiritual practice'. In most moments I choose the latter.

    CuddleCat - good news on Pampered Kitty

    Larimar - Happy Birthday! I will try to scrounge up something from my Wardrobe, tonight, that reminds me of you. I alas am all out of Tabac Blond.


    Haven't worn this decant in a while - today it smells pretty darned good. But, yeah, only a whiff of sandalwood in this one.

    Oh my. When little Kimchi was fixed, they told me to make sure she wore the head cone and stayed calm. I told them they had to pick one; when I put the headdress on her she freaked out and ran everywhere kicking like crazy.

    Frapin 1270 for today.

    Quarry, I hope you are doing OK.

    I'm wearing DS & Durga Debaser today. I'm going out of my mind with worry about anticipated violence being reported. I'm trying to cultivate a historical perspective. Sorry to be a downer but it feels false to think about anything else right now, speaking for myself only.

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, dear Larimar!

    CuddleCat, extra ear scritches for Kitty.

    Trilby Lark I’m worrying right there with you. I don’t even know what to say anymore.

    I had two medical test appointments today and wore Iskander by Parfum d'Empire to go easy on the technicians.

    Also joining in with all the worrywarts -- it feels like anything could happen. Tdem, Dangerous Complicity sounds like the perfect perfume for the zeitgeist. And glad to hear CuddleCat's good news (except for the neck cone of course, those are a huge pain).
