    Evening/Morning, all,

    It is grim, dark gray, and awful outside, but not cold. I am wearing vintage Egoïste, and a spray of Coty Vanilla Fields, just purchased on a grocery run, when I found it on a clearance shelf for $3.

    Foxbins, my belated condolences. I'm very sorry to hear about your dog.

    Extremely hot today. Started with Bal d'Afrique by Byredo for a couple of hours, then went with 34 Boulevard St Germain EDT by Diptyque. For evening, it will be Narciso EDP by NR.

    I have dug into my little sample of Splendiris. It is gorgeous, I love cold iris, and this includes a classy take on the rosey/violetty/powdery/vanilly Makeup Pudding accord. This house has some lovely things.

    I am wearing Byredo La Tulipe on this freezing cold
    day. We still have a lot of snow on the ground.

    Good morning all !. We ended up with about three inches of snow yesterday . It did partially thaw but then froze overnight so conditions are pretty treacherous under foot. Managed to get to work and back without any ignominious mishaps .

    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 everyone -

    As if somehow sensing my current vanilla jag, my blind sample grab from my Kerosene sampler box came up with Kerosene Sweetly Known.




    Nice so far, certainly one of the more interesting gourmands I've tried, though I'm getting whiffs of a weird, slightly over-ripe fruit as well as the cocoa/vanilla. (Speaking of which, khanada, let us know how your Vanilla Fields steal works out for you!)

    Let's make the most of Monday!

    Sweetly Known fragrance notes: Cardamom, Cocoa, Sugar, Burnt caramel, Vanilla, 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

    I will probably continue my random pull from my ELdO 30 samples box set for SOTA. This morning, I gotta do chores, and this cold miserable day was made for that. For motivation, I am turning up the stereo to listen to my brother's ex-band, The Midnight Twisters, of the tube top and Rolling Rock genre, having donned the only fragrance I know of with an IHOP accord: Ralph Hot.

    A pleasant day to all.
    To my CONUS friends: I would be delighted to pass the ELdO sampler to an ELdO newbie

    I'm wearing Kerosene Winter of 99. I just love its opening blast of nutmeg, very dry, followed by smoldering vanilla. Yeah, it's wintery all right.

    Yesterday's initial wearing of Le Lion de Chanel was mind-blowing.
