    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..."

    Good morning!

    It's a bit "dreich" here today, as dear Foustie would say.
    I wonder where she is these days.

    Afternoon all!

    We're watching the final Rangers game of the season, after which they finally get to lift the Scottish League cup after all these long years! What a moment, & what an incredible team.

    l'm wearing Alien for the occasion.

    Congratulations to teardrop & Jon on victory!

    I’ve been AWOL for a while due to extreme stress & anxiety while house hunting in a crazy market. After a fierce bidding war we finally emerged victorious last night, so now that the tension has dropped, I can return to the more leisurely focus of enjoying perfume. :-)

    Wearing Dusita Splendiris to celebrate.

    Congrats on the new pad, Caz! Is it on the island? I think I still haven't heard what prompted you to move all the way cross-country.

    I'm wearing a sample of the new Jo Malone Elderflower Cordial Cologne, and I'm sorry to report it's a massive disappointment. Not only does it not smell like the St. Germain liqueur I'd hoped it would resemble, it barely smells like elderflower at all, and then only for maybe ten minutes, and it's much too sweet. I had high hopes, since it not only was created by Christine Nagel but also listed lychee as a note, which to me is a twin for elderflower, and both of which I love. More salt in the wound: its total lifespan on my skin was less than an hour, and it costs the equivalent of $225+ for a 100ml bottle.

    Belvoir Elderflower Cordial beverage smells ten times better than this straight out of the bottle. Too bad you can't wear it.

    I'm enjoying the day in Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom.

    It's been so overcast and chilly here. I shall enjoy every minute of temperate weather before the long, hot summer kicks in.

    The garage drywalling is in progress and should be completed next week. Meanwhile, all garage contents are stored in the house and back patio so this minimalist is living in what appears to be a hoarding house (piles of crates and items stacked all around). There's an odd coziness to it.

    Our outdoor brick planters and planting bed were demo'd yesterday and as if by magic the garden shop submitted their quote for plants and installation services. Oh, I know NOTHING about plants and flowers. It turns out that roses, lavender, rosemary, Jasmine and gardenia all grow well in our location so those will be prominently featured. A perfume inspired garden!

    We've had a long chilly spring. Storms on their way later today, so I'm wanting something cozy to wear today. I'm opting for vintage parfum Le Dix by Balenciaga.

    I switched to Jo Malone English Oak & Hazlenut after showering. It's more green and tart than I remembered. Must be the "green" hazlenut, vetiver, and moss. The wood is subdued. It's a birthday gift from my son last year that I'm just getting around to wearing. He asked what I wanted so I suggested that he get something from Jo Malone that's not floral. It was during the early days of the pandemic so he had to make an appointment to go into Bloomingdales to speak with an SA. There are some things I'm going to miss about Covid restrictions!

    I took the winter comforter off the bed this morning as temperatures look like they will stay spring/early summer-like from now on. I'm wearing Limed, so tart it makes my mouth water. I hope Ryan and family are doing well.
