    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..."

    Goodness. What a photo, Jon.

    Trialing You or Someone Like You. My, but it's tangy and bright! Youthful. A touch soapy. Possibly annoyingly cheerful.

    Good morning, all!

    Feeling a touch sleepy as strong thunderstorms moved through our area at about 4 am. Awoke first to wind slamming into our townhome and then again about 30 minutes later to a massive clap of thunder that rattled windows. All seems fine outside this morning, though!

    With cooler temps thanks to the storm, I’m wearing Le Sixieme Parfum by Coolife, a gorgeous melange of osmanthus, iris, labdanum and patchouli.

    I almost wore that myself today Quarry, as I took a shower with a mint-prominent Shower Foam (Eau de Minthe by Diptyque...it was pricey, but I bought it for myself before I went on vacation and let me tell you...coming back after hours in the sun and in the ocean to a shower radiating with the scent of mint is incredibly refreshing). But tbh when I wear You Or Someone Like You the rose note in it is very prominent so it becomes a rose monster, with mint. Now that I think of it I just need something that smells simply as mint. I do miss my bottle of Comme des Garcons Series 1 Leaves: Mint that I found in the corner, in the back, of a perfume shop in Stockholm many years ago. Bertrand Douchafour did a great job with that one. It's like a cool bottle of mint toner - so refreshing.

    Instead I am wearing:

    Cologne Reloaded by Bogue




    Without getting into the details (I'll explain more later) I might have to travel to my parents next week. Mom is not well. Which is weird timing because I just returned from an 11 day vacation and to a huge re-shift in my job department, new direct reports, some of my old direct reports report to someone new, software rollout is imminent, 4 new team members need to be trained, someone resigned...

    Nonetheless, I will get thru this. If you're reading this, send me some ((good vibes)), I will need them.

    Oof, Mike, that sounds like a lot to handle. Best wishes to you!

    I wanted to join the Blue Sync for the weekend, but all my fragrances in blue bottles are much too heavy for July heat, so I went with vintage bath powder instead, from two different cobalt bottles of Bourjois Evening in Paris, which in perfume form is too floral-heavy for me but works just fine in powder form.

    Mike, so sorry to hear you mom isn't well. And work, well...you'll get through everything just fine. Sending you good vibes!

    I'm wearing Infusion d'Iris Absolu this evening after a day of muggy overcast. I wish it would rain, everything is so dry. The lawn is crunchy.
