    Morning all!

    The heat has eased by a few degrees overnight, & there's a lovely breeze coming in through the windows this morning. What a relief!

    l'm synching in Bronze Goddess today.

    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..."

    l've had a good couple of hours on the sunlounger with no need for the beach umbrella, now that the temps are down into the twenties. l'm now showered & about to start making lasagne, now that it's cooled down enough to cook & eat something other than salads!

    Continuing to synch in Tuberose Gardenia for this evening.

    Hello, friends!

    It’s been a weird and challenging last few days: Trying to stay focused on job search, a couple of interviews (one preliminary, one ‘secondary’ that I think I did pretty well on, but have absolutely no idea really, as one generally can’t tell with these things), slogging through some applications, trying to stay positive and having only limited success. *Really* looking forward to wine o’clock today. At least the weather is finally beautifully fair after a week (or what feels like a week, anyway) of rain, clouds and chilly bluster.

    My SOTDs for the last few days: Serge Lutens Chergui (power self-positivity fragrance for the interviews), Hermes Rose Ikebana and Iris Ukiyoé.

    Today: In sync with Profumum Santalum. Hitting the spot, and it’s not too hot for it today. Yay!



    Fantastic Friday, everyone.

    Santalum fragrance notes: Sandalwood, Myrrh, Cinnamon.
    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

    It's hard to imagine what the view would be like from those cliff-edge windows. It must look like you're floating in the air above the sea.
    Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.

    I was twice synced today, first in Histoires de Parfums 1804 George Sand and now totally oversprayed in Songes EDP.

    David surprised me with a bottle of vintage Ralph Lauren Safari (original release bottle) after some of you were singing its praises a week or so ago. So excited to wear it tomorrow! I removed the cap to sniff it and was immediately transported to the late 80s/early 90s. Ropion is a master.

    ComDiva, wish you all the best with your job search! You'll soon find one that you like. Job searches are like that, actually any search is like that. Sometimes the employers / recruiters take a long time to get back. It's just a matter of time.
