    Morning all!

    We had a few snow flurries yesterday, but nothing lingered on the ground.

    lt's a cold & gloomy start here, but l'm wearing Seville a l'Aube to brighten up my long shift today.

    Good morning.

    We had a strange day weatherwise here too yesterday.
    I went to sit out in the sunshine after lunch and was all
    set up with my cup of tea and the Sunday papers when
    suddenly I got pelted with hailstones and had to rush back
    inside again!

    I am just off for a routine bone density scan wearing Idylle edt..

    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..."

    Did you get a haircut Jon?

    I went into Oswestry after my appointment this morning
    and saw a long queue of men outside one of the shops.
    On closer inspection I realised it was a Barber's shop!

    Maybe we should all wear "barber shop" 'fumes to celebate the glorious 12th April
    here in the UK. I plan to wear OpoponaxImperial by Les Nereides this evening.

    I am waiting to hear if I have
    an appointment at my local hairdressers sometime soon. Fingers crossed.

    Morning!

    It rained all day yesterday - so much that it shorted out the parking garage gate in my building and I was stuck outside when I got home last night and had to walk in the rain back home. Nonetheless the humid warm temperatures are back. But yes, crazy weather here also. I went to have drinks with a friend in Brickell and it was 88 F when I was driving to his place and when the rain arrived with wind, it was 68 F. I was not prepared for that - I was freezing in shorts and a t-shirt.

    I now realized I forgot to post yesterday (I could have sworn I did??). I wore Les Heures de Parfum - I L'Heure Promise by Cartier (ErinK you'd love this one, I think) and today I'm in:

    Chinese Oud by Areej le Dore

    I'm supposed to schedule my first DEXA scan (our senior Medicare program covers it). I have never been--can never be--vain about my figure, hair, or skin, but I think this might be my time to shine: bone and muscle! I plan to wait 'til August so my muscles will be rebuilt from this past convalescent winter.

    Does anyone else notice how, after a certain point in sampling, the items on your sample list are each available from only different sources? There may be just a handful of items, but one is available only from, say, Lucky Scent, and one only from Surrender to Chance, and one only from the official company, and one only from ebay, etc., etc. When I see this pattern, I think: maybe I'll wait until I can get to Chicago. It's like sampling constipation.

    Bel Ami for a dreary weather day.

    Good morning. After having temps in the 60's last week, today it's snowing. Looks like it's December outside, 8 inches possible. Wearing APOM today.

    Morning all. After weeks of mild temperatures, this is what we woke up to this morning - several inches of snow and a return to winter. Seems to happen every year around this time. SOTD is Diptyque Philosykos EDP.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Lucky here with the weather -- clear, breezy, warm, spring-like. Yesterday I bought some cherry tomatoes that had their stems attached, and was reminded how much I love that smell of the sappy stem, quite different from the tomato leaf, funkier and with a vegetal musk.

    So I pulled out my favorite facsimile of that vegetal funk: Ninfeo Mio by Annick Goutal.

    Hi, everyone -

    Sharing in the weather whiplash here - one day of this past weekend was sunny and in the 70s (F), then yesterday was grey and a little chilly, and today it's grey, threatening showers, and downright cold-for-April.

    Last of my Kerosene samples examined today! Kerosene Sacred Memories. Aptly described by others as a lighter, *slightly* more buttoned-up relation to Blackmail, which I completely adore. So this is good, but my preference is for the super-bold, BIG olfactory options most of the time. I'll enjoy the rest of my sample, especially in warmer weather, but don't need more.



    Marvelous Monday, everyone!

    Sacred Memory fragrance notes: Red berries, Bergamot, Whiskey oak barrel, Tobacco absolute, Amber, 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
