    Good morning all !. Going with a new arrival today. My current bottle is virtually empty so why not replace it with a superior vintage . I don't usually pay much attention to presentation but this definitely has the wow factor and is noticeably more tenacious than the current version. Been after one of these for a long time !.

    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..."

    Last of the Indémodables samples today -Musc des Sables - was a bit apprehensive of this one as I'm not a major musk fan, and the mention of sand evokes terror of aquatics....

    Jon Rodgers: Enjoy your find - looks absolutely gorgeous and I'd imagine the scent is fantastic!

    Yup!

    After days dealing with "stuff" (notably navigating my entry into ordering my own urostomy supplies because visiting nurses are near ready to let me fly solo -- both frightening and freeing), today I'm planning a supershower, walking on the treadmill, fragrance sampling, seed ordering, and sci-fi watching. Will also be cooking(!) zucchini lasagna. I'll take two sips of Mr. Q's wine at lunch, too. So, as long as the bridge don't break and the creek don't rise (i.e., pouch failure, all too common), this could be a beautifully "normal" day.

    Afternoon all!

    Wow, Jon!

    Q, l wish you a wonderfully normal day, & many more to come!

    l have the day off, & after a foggy start we have beautiful sunshine here. The neighbour's snowdrops are blooming, & l can feel spring is just around the corner, even though we have a chance of snow tomorrow.

    My new shoes arrived, & they feel pretty good just walking around the house. The real test will come when l wear them to work tomorrow. The "arch sleeves" are a definite no-go, however. Way too tight, & the pad won't sit in the position that l need it to. l think they're meant for someone with much longer, thinner feet than mine.

    l'm wearing Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle today.

    Givenchy III (1970) parfum by Raymond Chaillan for Givenchy

    Classic. Green. Chypre. Full stop.

    Does anything feel more decadent than putting on pure parfum just to lounge around the house in your pajamas? I think not.

    Jon - I absolutely love vintage Dia for Men. You lucky dog. There's something about it that reminds me of Habit Rouge. It's the most Guerlain-ish smelling Amouage, in my opinion.

    Quarry - enjoy your day. What type of wine did Mr. Q make?

    I forgot to post yesterday, when a few of you mentioned Rossy de Palma by ELDO - I really like that one. I always forget about it. It's probably one of my Top 5 rose scents. Have no idea why I've never bought a decant. I need to. I don't have a lot of rose in my wardrobe (Rose 31, some Areej le Dore and Bortnikoff ouds w rose, 1878 Mata Hari, Aromatics Elixir Perfumers Reserve...) but I feel like the RdP would be a nice spring/summer rose. I also think I smell rose in You Or Someone Like You by ELDO - does anyone else?


    Went to Cross Fit this morning (Miami is hot again - I sweat like a dog!) and then did some errands. I'm negotiating with the Listing Agent for the rental we put an offer on. I'll do some laundry. We might go see another apartment complex (just in case) and then I plan on housesitting for a friend who's in Santiago, Chile for a month and raiding his well-stocked cocktail bar

    I wore a tiny bit of this before CF - I will wear more later:

    Happy Saturday! I thought I'd sample Chanel Jersey today. Its opening notes of wildflowers and grass intrigue me, and it has lavender in the mid, along with rose and jasmine. I hope it's good. I don't see it mentioned often on BN.

    I tested some just this morning and there's definitely rose in there. Kind of a spiced rose, with a lightly fruity undertone of something airy, like lychee or elderflower.

    Afternoon/Evening all,

    Congratulations, Jon!! Dia is superb, even in current vintage.

    I’m wearing Prada Infusion d’Iris Absolue. I sometimes hear rumors that this is discontinued. But I have been hearing this, since I bought it, years ago. Perhaps it is like Chanel No. 19, which I believe comes, and goes, depending on what is happening with the iris crop.

    Thanks, teardrop, Caz, Mike. Mike, you're wearing one of my faves.
    I swapped seeing our visiting daughter for treadmill time, but otherwise the day is proceeding as desired. Little Q is so thoughtful to cook and drive some distance to deliver food to us. Lasagna lunch was great. Mr. Q's wine, a blend of elderberry and grape, is sweeter and grapier than I like, preferring bone dry and tasting more of oak than fruit, but still a pleasure.

    My favorite jasmine-scented product is Bela triple-milled natural soap from Australia. I've been looking for a jasmine-forward perfume that attracts me as much. I ordered Keiko Mecheri Clair Obscur (tuberose dominates the jasmine and "meh"), Rogue Jasmin Antique (I'll wear another day), and today's Grandiflora Madagascan Jasmine. Its green notes impart a visit-to-the-botanical-dome quality that couldn't come at a better time of year. MJ reminds me of some scents I've sampled that pretend to be lilac. It's a pleasure to wear this today, but I won't be needing more.

    Khanada, Infusion d’Iris Absolue is one of my top favourites. It was supposed to be a limited edition when it was released in 2012 - I haven’t seen it at retailers for a while but someone was recently selling bottles on eBay at regular retail price, so I took advantage and bought a back-up. The gold bottle is stunning too.

    Right now I’m in l’Artisan Drole de Rose - sometimes this one works and sometimes it doesn’t. Today it’s working quite well and I am really enjoying the fruity violet - it’s a cheerful pick-me-up that is making the deep freeze here more bearable.

    Sending well wishes to everyone!
