    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..."

    Oh (((((((foxbins))))))), my condolences for the dog.

    I enjoyed reading all your perfume stories.

    I'm wearing Alaia (a body cream and a couple of dabs from a mini) and Alaia Nude over it today. I've been doing lots of push ups and squats during the week to compensate all that sitting at home, and my muscles hurt now, but it's a good pain.

    Yesterday I was off from work and not online much (which I enjoyed) so I wasn't able to post that I was in Sync, in my (I can't believe I stumbled onto a bottle in a vintage thrift store for cheap!):

    Apres l'Ondee vintage Extrait by Guerlain



    It only lasts an hour or so, but sometimes when I wear it I later it with the current EdT and they place nice together.

    Today I'm in a sample for the 1st time:

    A real barnyard-stinker of a top note takes you down a beautiful path to lots of florals and yummy fruit notes. But would I wear this, if I had a decant? Not sure.

    Trilby Lark and I recently discovered that we lived just a block apart in San Francisco at the same time during our flaming youths and frequented the same restaurants, bars and movie theaters. If she had bumped into me at that time, which might very well have happened, I would have smelled then like I do today:

    I saw that! I was wearing Chanel No. 19...

    Today, I'm wearing Grand Soir. I've turned into an amber lover. I pulled up the blinds to watch the rain. It rarely rains here and I love it so.

    What luck for you mikeperez23! Congrats on such a find! And a few hugs thrown in, just because.

    I've got Andy Warhol for women on my left arm & Van Cleef & Arpels Miss Arpels on my right.I'm not venturing out today & the cats don't mind what I wear, so it's all good.

    Thank you Cook.bot, Quarry, teardrop, cello, Cazaubon, TrilbyLark, Jon, ClockworkAlice, HofP, Shycat, tdem, Mike, Ine, and Knit for your sympathy and hugs. The cats are a comfort. No affiliation at all but Lap of Love, an in-home veterinary hospice and euthanasia service, was wonderful and made the process easier.

    Oh, ((((foxbins))), so sorry to hear about your dog.

    Knit, nice to see you!

    Spritz and dash for me today - Le Labo Vanille 44, from a teeny tiny sample I unearthed.



    Very pretty, though as others have noted, not a full-on vanilla. Quite lovely nonetheless; I especially enjoyed the whiff of aldehydes up front, moving to the vanilla and incense soon thereafter. I'm enjoying it.

    Scrumptious Saturday to everyone - even if you're having haggis. ;-)

    Vanille 44 fragrance notes: Bourbon vanilla, Amber, Incense, Woods.

    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
