    Had a little laugh at the Basenotes Robot's choice for this morning!

    My choice is Lolita Lempicka.

    Enjoy your day everyone, whether hot or not.

    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 everyone, today is a cloudy and cold day. I hardly slept last night, but promised to meet a friend in town later. I'm feeling a bit helpless after all that has happened in my bf's family. At the moment it feels like he's shutting me out Sotd is Dzing! Hope all have a great day.

    (((Ine))) As you know, BF and his parents are in need of professional therapy at this stage. Having now two siblings/children succumb to suicide must have the family in total upheaval, rocking the boat on their surviving relationships. Don't take anything the BF does personally. He may not be able to see any good in life right now.

    Jon, never stop illustrating your perceptions. They're such a treat for us.

    Speaking of pictures, I just Googled images of Corfu. CwAlice, I can't actually believe such a glorious place exists in real life. You must be enjoying your memories so much.

    Since we spent only about $30 in repairing the leach field (fingers crossed) instead of thousands, I'm justifying an order of samples and a decant of Indult Isvaraya -- available from Scent Split only, and thank goodness. A bottle costs $220, and I'd never use it up. I can't help but think this is a temporary addiction. It's too sweet, too weird -- like candy and violets and rhubarb (officially patchouli, plums and jasmine). SotD.

    Yeah, where is Shycat? She's my favorite online humorist.

    You have such a big heart, (((Ine))). My guess is even if he doesn't want to talk, the unconditional love and support you give him will mean the world to him as he tries to navigate the grief and all of the other stuff his family situation is likely causing. And if you (and he) are both still hurting from relationship stuff the last month or so, I can see how that would be hard. So remember to take care of yourself, too. Your friends and family can help support you if you let them.



    Q, you are a stronger woman than I. My rather sensitive gag reflex would have rendered me useless.

    Foxbins, did you ever locate your stylist?

    En Passant for me today.

    I read on Twitter that today is National Mango Day ... so I am wearing the only frag I have with a Mango note, Angel Eau Croisiere. It is nice and tropical and great to wear on a hot and hazy day.

    Ine, I’m so sorry to hear of your boyfriend’s family tragedy. You are doing the right thing by just being there and being ready when he’s ready to talk about it.

    Shades, I would totally wear a mango-scented fragrance. Mangoes in their natural state already smell somewhat like a perfume.

    I am wearing Mint 26, not in the directory because it was a precursor to Imaginary Authors Saint Julep, I think.

    Quarry, I have stayed firmly in cities because of things like leach fields and septic systems. I don't want to have to deal with poo. You are a strong woman.

    ExtremeK, Yes, I found my stylist and got a cut, the salon moved a couple miles away because the landlord raised the rent too much. Still going to HNL next weekend, the headboard and some bath fixtures are coming. I'm also hoping to meet with a couple of contractors.

    Ine, I am thinking about you and sending you courage and hugs.

    I'm not so heroic as you make me out, my dears. For the record, leach fields contain just liquids when working properly, mostly from washers and showers and such, albeit not like a mountain stream, they're not so fragrant as the tank proper.

    On the subject of old houses, if you would move into this new listing a mile from us, I promise to share all my fragrance samples with you. This is the semi-mansion of the 1800s quarry owner whose stone built our schoolhouse home. Stone homes like this will never be built again forever.
