    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..."

    Up early for blood work + also went to the beach to take some videos for Giancarlo on his iPhone (he has some music he made he is releasing online this week and he wants to make some videos to accompany the release...watching the sunrise is so awesome, we should do it more!)

    I lightly applied 1 spray (which is more than enough sometimes) of:

    Samsara for today.

    It's so hot here and the rainy season is weeks away yet, and one of the houses a few blocks away has a plague of grasshoppers, the awful lubber ones no bird will touch. The dog and I have been stomping tens of them every time we walk by, she herds them into the road and I squash 'em or she crunches and spits them out, or jumps her paw on them, but there are so many. It is sort of apocalyptic but only that one yard. Saw a hundred of them chilling on a completely defoliated bush. I can't bear to touch them, but somebody needs to go out there with a bucket of bleach or alcohol and pick them all off and toss them in before they are old enough to mate.

    I'm wearing YSL Libre Intense today. Yesterday I drove the CR-V to the beach at Crystal Cove. There was a single sailboat going up the coast and it looked so peaceful. I'm taking the car out again today to practice driving it. This time I think I'll head to the canyons.

    I'm sure we'd all like a link to G's upcoming music video, Mike. I'd also like to see a video from Robin with dog and grasshoppers.

    Hello everyone.... Originally today I just didn't feel like getting up. This, date is always a bit hard for me. My bestfriend commited suicide... It is 22 years ago now, but it still hurts I also managed to smash my 10 ml of Le parfum de Therese.... I'm glad it was just a small bottle, but it kind of sucks still. At least I know I have a bottle of OJ Champaca on its way. After schedule it will arrive tomorrow. I guess I'll just add that to my May rotation now. I'm also really curious about that musicvideo. Bring it on Now I'll try to spend the rest of the day on the balcony with a beer Sotd is Dune

    I am back from the canyon (Weir Canyon) and, boy, did my little hike activate the Libre Intense I wore. Its lavender turned very herbal and medicinal. It's nothing like the smooth vanilla lavender in Jersey. The two fragrances go together very well in a rotation.

    Samsara: The fragrance to kill locusts in! lol We have those here and there in Miami and yes the only way to kill them is manually...its so gross and some of them will hop away, they're fast.

    The Scandal parfum (vintage) by Lanvin turned - so...I guess I will have to try this again from another sample.

    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
