    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..."

    As regards today's synch - my bottle wasn't exactly cheap but the fragrance certainly started out as a drugstore classic so I'm counting it. Any excuse to wear this delight

    Jujy, I loved your pictures! I tried to pick a favorite, but I couldn't decide between three and then I gave up.

    Happy Birthday to Badarun!

    I met my skunk the other morning, as in, "Hey. There's a big cat with a white stripe down it's back. I think I'll reverse course." Out of sight, out of mind. This A.M. I threw out a few peanuts for my bluejays and took a walk around my back yard, happily returning to my bird feeders, and guess what? Same cat there, who threw up her tail in alarm. Yes, there was alarm all over the place.

    Retreat! Retreat!

    I stomped my feet at a safer distance and watched her waddle off to the front yard. I'm happily in sync with Love's Baby Soft, sans skunk.
    She who laughs last.....

    CuddleCat, I'm relieved to hear your dear kitty has been well treated by your vet.

    Jujy, I loved your taking us to Rockefeller Park for a lie down and cloud gazing.

    Ine, nice to see the sun returning to your world. Congrats on your aunt-hood.

    Dora, welcome back to perfume-wearing and the nicest forum on earth.

    Shycat, glad you're not smelling skunk to any degree.

    No sotd yet, but I think it may be Lolita Lempicka, variations of which have seen some extra popularity here of late. Could think of nothing to sync.

    THANK YOU for the many thoughts and hugs you posted this week.

    It's been a rocky few days with lots of appts. In the not-so-good news arena: My cancer did not respond to chemo and was found in one of the lymph nodes removed, and a blood test indicated a blood clot. The good news: My 20 surgical staples have been yanked, and a CT scan shows no sign of cancer or blood clot. Will get another scan in three months. If cancer shows up anywhere else, we have to try immunotherapy. I'm struggling to embrace "don't worry about what you can't control" because a sense of threat often sneaks up and stings my consciousness. I have other healing issues, which should be surmountable over the coming months, but the weight of all these things takes a toll on the mind.

    Hello everyone, and TGIF!!!

    (((Quarry))) and happy birthday badarun! General good vibes to all.

    In sync with Jean Couturier Coriandre Eau de Toilette,which I don't think started as a drugstore classic, but I do think I have seen on drugstore shelves over the years, and am sure I've seen on the deep discount "shelves" of fragrance sites and even on Overstock!




    Coriandre Eau de Toilette fragrance notes: Coriander, Angelica, Orange flower, Rose, Jasmine, Orris, Lily of the valley, Geranium, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Oakmoss, Civet, Musk.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    (((((Quarry))))) lots more gentle hugs being sent your way. Glad to hear there's no sign of any further cancer or clots, but if it does come to it, l've heard very good things about immunotherapy.

    Jon, looks like your plans are the same as mine! l've made some (slow) progress on my dissertation this week, & got all my chores done, so it's time for some R&R.

    I'm wearing DS & Durga Debaser again. I'm enjoying the heck out of my new purchase (blind buy).

    So sorry, Quarry, to learn of your difficulties. I hope things improve soon.
