    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..."

    I'm about to roll out of bed, do the requisite morning dog greeting (she insists we kiss and wrestle and wiggle before anything else can happen), and have my coffee. It's chilly but sunny, and today will finally be a play day -- starting by turning the compost and then some trail building up the hill. Need a scent that will survive the wind. I'm thinking Opium. Lunch should include "muscle relaxant." I think we have only red muscle relaxant in house. Then it's sci fi Saturday viewing. Sweet.

    Khanada, follow your instincts. You have a right to feel good. BTW, I started a semester of library science before Little Q came along.

    Aloha, foxbins.

    Jujy, it took me a beat before I r-e-a-l-l-y appreciated the "shredding." (I got the Sly & The Family Stone reference upon first sight though.)

    Hello and best to everyone. Hugs to ((((Khanada)))) and to anyone else who could use one.

    Teardrop, how I miss the unbeatable scent of line dried sheets and towels. No fabric softener can hope to compare. My husband has terrible hay fever and it flares up no matter how thoroughly I shake the wash out before bringing it indoors, so I had to stop hanging it out to dry.

    (((((khanada))))), it's good to hear the medication is already working and that you are taking your steps to start feeling better. Hoping everything turns out better soon.

    I sniffed all the caps after shower this morning and picked out Lolita Lempicka Mon Premier. I'm still not sure it was a right choice, but it is a good one nevertheless.

I'm looking forward to that Khanada, I really enjoy your posts here onBasenotes and I wish you all the best I'm glad to see you post again. These are hard times with lots of isolation and that effects people :/ I appreciate your openess and honesty about how you feel SotE is Dzongkha.

    I'm wearing Chanel Jersey today.

    We're bringing most of the stuff stored in the garage into the house to clear the workspace for drywalling. Fun. No really, I love physical activity. It's my urban form of Quarry hauling around rip rap.

    I just got a sample of Boy from the Chanel SA. At your recommendation, I'll give it a try. Thanks!

    You are welcome!

    I have a 90 degrees (if not 180 ...) turn on this one. I was initially lukewarm based on a sample, but last year managed to get a decant in a swap, and the more I wore it the more I liked it. Now this is the next bottle l'm going to buy.

    It does have a very soft, smooth, slightly sweetish lavender.

    Traveling home today, the good news is that Oregon warmed up while I was gone so I'm going back to temps in the mid-70F. Scentless for flying.
