    Morning all!

    foxbins, glad to hear you found your stylist! l'm wondering why they didn't put up a sign on the old premises to say where they'd gone.

    At last we have a beautiful sunny day here. Time to catch up on some gardening! And possibly some time on the sunlounger later...

    This morning l'm trying my sample of G Clef by Sarah Baker Perfumes.

    It's a great start to the morning here weatherwise as well!
    I think we have a heatwave coming this weekend (sorry Jon.)

    I always reach for Mandarine Basilic when the temperature rises.

    Congratulations to our French friends. Vive la France

    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 wearing Nicolai Angelys Pear again today. It's fascinatingly odd and extremely potent. I heard that most Nicolais are.

    We're going out to lunch in Long Beach. The new clothes I ordered online arrived and I hope they fit. If not, they will soon as I am watching my diet and the Covid pounds are leaving. I feel much better.

    After a lovely day spent tidying up the garden & making use of the sunlounger, l'm celebrating the return of summer in lntense Tiare this evening.

    The temps are in the mid twenties with a nice breeze & a few clouds around to relieve the heat every so often. This is perfect for me, & l hope it doesn't get too much hotter...

    I'm not having a great day. Got some bad health news about my mom. Fragrance is always a nice way to escape. And today's a good day for this one.

    ((((LauraH)))) I'm sure you're struggling, as are your mom and family. Learning I had cancer last year, I had to adopt some mantras to keep me in the moment and leaned heavily on friends who knew how to listen and speak words of wisdom. Take deep breaths, they really do help. Trust that medicine and palliative comforts are at the ready. And then what will be, will be. (((More hugs)))

    Ine, love vacay pix.

    Teardrop, I feel good reading about your day, especially knowing you don't have to work on a thesis.

    Le Labo samples arrived. Trying Santal 33. Yep, yep, yep. I can see why this one's popular, quick to make a good impression, easy to live with in the office or anywhere. Is it "enough" for those of us who've been exposed to a wide range of fragrances? Mmmm. Maybe not.
