    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..."

    Morning all, & Happy BN-iversary, freewheelin'!

    l have the day off, & it's cloudy here, but l plan to make the final tweaks to my dissertation as advised by my tutor. l'll need to pop out for groceries later, but at least l won't be tempted to spend the day outside.

    l'm giving a second wearing to my sample of Clash: Chlorophyll Gardenia today.

    Good morning to you all.

    It's a dull start to the day here too, Teardrop so I have no
    excuse not to do some housework.
    My bookclub is meeting up in a neighbour's garden this
    evening, for the first time since March 2020, and I hope it
    doesn't rain on our parade.

    My SOTD is Mandorlo di Sicilia by Acqua di Parma.

    Happy BNiversary to freewheelingvagabond

    Another arduous day at work yesterday but every cloud has a silver lining. I have managed to accumulate a lot of time in lieu so I won't be back there again until Monday

    kewart, really sorry to hear that your trip has been postponed but you have definitely made the right decision. Travelling abroad is just too much hassle at the moment and things can change very quickly. Look at the chaos in Portugal earlier this week with everyone battling to return before the deadline.

    Loved the photos, Mrs Q

    After a couple of months of going "dry", over the last two weeks I received a bottle of Etruscan Water, and several samples/decants (some I hadn't tried before). Today wearing one of those Ouarzazate.

    Morning all!

    I love the anise (or is it licorice) note in this one - it really differentiates it from other old-school-orientals:

    Good day to all, and happy birthday, dear Trilby!! Also, happy BN-iversary to our own freewheelin'! Finally, WOW, Ms. Q., what a fantastic labor of love your pics display! Another vote for some kind of state historic recognition...

    Wearing a couple of fragrances (different sides) that I was hoping would be good/light for today, but now that the heat has broken (at least temporarily), I'm finding both to be inadequate.

    Escentric Molecules 01 and 02. Each is so light I'm not sure if I'm anosmic to many of their notes.



    Thrilling Thursday to all, and I may be posting only episodically over the next few days.

    Escentric 01 fragrance notes: Iso E Super, Pink pepper, Green lime, Benzoin, Mastic, Incense.

    Escentric 02 fragrance notes: Ambroxan, Vetiver, Muscone, Orris, Elderflower extract, Hedione.
    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

    Happy Birthday, Trilby

    Good BN-iversary Day, FWV!

    Kewart, sorry you have to postpone your French holiday.

    Ine and Jujy have cool new hair-do's, meanwhile I laugh almost every time I look in the mirror. I'm approaching full-on Harpo Marx.

    A blast of Cologne Sologne is all that would do for this bloody hot weather.

    More thanks for your thoughtful words regarding our place. Since puns are popular with CuddleCat, CwAlice, and ExtremeK, I'll share one more. As visitors start their walkabout, they pass a 5-ft-diameter boulder with a wee tableau behind.

    Quarry, that's enchanting and adorable. You rock!! (sorry, couldn't help myself.)

    Trilby, your vacation sounds wonderful, and I hope your birthday is as well. Dinner somewhere special?
