    Good morning all !. khanada, really pleased to hear the surgery went well for your cousin. Best wishes to him for a full recovery. Btw, I am with you all the way on Wood Sage & Sea Salt. I purchased a bottle just after it was released and my enthusiasm has never diminished. The same goes for today's choice ....

    Morning all!

    khanada, my best wishes to your cousin for a swift recovery.
    Yesterday l was asked to help on a different ward, & to return the favour l was given today off, so my redeployment is officially over!
    What a joy to wake up & know l have the whole weekend off, & l'll be back with my buddies on Monday. l've been down to visit them a couple of times, but l've really missed them. And my feet can finally begin to recover from the battering they've taken.

    l need to pop out for groceries later, but aside from that l'm going to give myself a good rest today. SOTD will be decided in a bit...

    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..."

    Khanada, I trust the docs will figure out what's amiss with favored cousin. I suppose they ruled out electrolyte issues (from stress and not eating well) before resorting to surgery.

    Sampling Goldfield & Banks Southern Bloom. Meh.

    Daughter came into town to make us breakfast, deliver a vegan shepherd's pie, and to run errands. She plans to take a 48-hour vacay to EPCOT on Monday/Tuesday. I asked her to check whether the Guerlain shop has Iris Torrefie and gave her a labeled ziplock. They won't make liquid samples, but they'll spray a paper sample. When Mike's friend checked recently, they didn't have IT yet.
    No one knows what their tomorrow will bring.

    Love and hugs to all.

    Thanks to my BNB, BaseNotes Benefactor, sampling of Chanel Les Exculsifs continues. A flat tire is keeping me close to home fore the weekend, and windchill is keeping me indoors. I elected Bois Des Iles parfum based on non-stop raves over the years, and I I have to say is, wow, so this is what everyone is talking about!" There's that "silk scarf" vibe that I am starting to ascribe to Chanel, and a lot going on, but so effortlessly. Will it have longevity? On moi, Sycomore did not, alas.

    ps—Looked at Chanel site, and the ingredients lists for the parfum and the EdP are quite different. Any insights on one vs t'other are most welcome. So, far, BdI is short-listed for my birthday present to self.

    I'm wearing Timbuktu. I'm reaching for seldom worn ones lately. Oh, I haven't worn it much in the last year or two, but I accumulated enough wears over the years to put it in my Top 10 Most Worn list.

    Jujy, it's a rare feeling to be ahead of you in any aspect of life -- sampling BdI (or Chanel exclusifs) may be the singular arena. What a pleasure to be witness to your dawning affection for the remarkable BdI.

    Also, thanks for your use of "t'other." I know no one else who talks playfully like that aside from me.

    Good morning, I am in Organic Fiji night blooming jasmine lotion, which smells exactly like jasmine flowers and I'm not sure how to feel about it. It's lovely, not cold like most jasmine perfumes, but I really smell like a jasmine bush. It's quite loud at first, then fades.
