    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..."

    Afternoon all!

    lt is indeed oppressively hot here today, with barely a breath of wind, & it didn't even seem to cool down much during the night. l've been pottering again this morning, & l need to pop out for groceries, but l'll be flaking out on the sunlounger again later.

    Wearing Aloha Tiare today.

    Forecast was to be cooler by the coast. Far too hot for black furry dog & fair skinned humans.

    I'm posting late today because I've slept /tried to sleep most of the day. Yesterday evening I the bf called me at work (first shift after the holiday) telling me his sister is dead. She committed suicide My shift was therefore cut a few hours shorter and my dad fetched me at work. It was a huge shock and it feels so unfair I didn't really know what to wear today, but eventually Bois d'encens felt apropriate. It kind of has a calming effect on me....

    As an early birthday present, my mother bought me a small (0.5 oz) bottle of Chanel Coromandel parfum. I’d only ever worn the EDP. The parfum is breathtakingly rich and radiant. What a gift! Feeling just incredibly spoiled today.

    Ineespenes, what terrible news. I am so sorry, and please accept my condolences.

    I am wearing Sandalwood today. In kind of a funky mood, I slept badly last night. I am hoping a brisk walk helps.

    So sorry to hear this, ine. I am sending you love and condolences.

    Post and dash today, because I read ine’s Post, and also because, Rogue Vetifleur, coming soon to my collection. I thought I was saving for fall purchases, but I think I need some of this to get through the dog days . I do not believe it is in the Directory yet. It makes me feel better about years of mourning for Guerlain Vetiver pour Elle, as it is at least as good, or better. Feels like wearing vintage chypre, with less of the “costume jewelry” feeling, and more like my favourite leggings.
