    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..."

    Glad to see you're back in the office Robin - I will work from mine also this Thursday. The President/Owner of the company will be in town so I imagine the office will be packed.

    l managed to get all the weeding done that l wanted to before the midday sun kicked in, & after lunch spent a glorious few hours on the sunlounger, although the beach umbrella was necessary for most of it. Phew, what a scorcher! l am so enjoying my freedom from academia & feeling very relaxed.

    Feel better soon, lne!

    I'm wearing Sisley Eau de Campagne on the road from Santa Fe to Flagstaff via Albuquerque. Tomorrow we start home to Southern California. Unfortunately, we have to travel through 120 degree weather (48.8 c) in the Mohave Desert.

    Yikes, Trilby. Be sure and carry extra water and check your tires regularly. I once crossed the Mojave in summer in a 15-year-old Nissan and burned through two tires en route. Thank god for Triple-A. Albuquerque is my favorite part of a Southwest road trip. Santa Fe is pretty, but ABQ just has more funk and character. And great midcentury motels on Route 66.

    It's super hot here too, and summer humidity has come to stay. I'm pulling out all the heat-defying eaux, starting with:

    Eau de Patou (1976) by Jean Kerleo

    Love this stuff, with its crisp citrus and jolie-laide heart.

    Last time we came out here, we travelled exclusively (whenever possible) on Historic Rte. 66 and stayed only in vintage/historic hotels. So much fun! We're in Gallup at the moment and it's HOT! I won't even leave the car for a rest stop. Oh, and a dust devil just blew pallets full of construction sheet rock across the road and nearly hit our car. Straight outta the Wizard of Oz. Yikes!

    Earlyn, Happy BNaversary!

    The SA at Saks gave me a little sample of Jasmin des Anges so that's my SOTD. It's a lovely jasmine but quite sweet. For some reason it reminds me of Wit.

    Yes, I adore it too, but now I’m feeling as if I need to get me some Eau de Patou. Even though our tastes diverge, especially on flowers, on the occasions I’ve tracked down fragrances that you have mentioned I’ve never been disappointed. I do wonder how many Eau’s are enough though? Whatever I have +1?

    You may be fonder of florals than I am, but we seem to be in sync when it comes to Diors and greens.

    And personally I'd never put a ceiling on eaux. Too much is never enough. Conversely, a single incense or rose seems to be the perfect quantity for my wardrobe.

    Trilby Lark, your adventures sound so enticing, dust storms or no.
