    Hopefully that Bronze Goddess will give you the impression of sun & warmth, teardrop!

    Today I overslept a bit and ran off forgetting to put perfume on, but luckily I had a rollerball of D&G Pour femme in my bag, so that's what I'm wearing today
    It's sweet, powdery and cozy and fits the gloomy weather today, so it's all for the better.

    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..."

    Hello, everyone!

    Congrats on the extremely impressive posting milestones, N.Cal and VR, and Ms. Q. I'm another one of your fans calling for an A+ grade. Did your outing feel as imposing when you did it as you were anticipating?

    After several truly gorgeous summer days - and with another several on the horizon (so to speak) for the rest of this week and the weekend - It's pouring gentle buckets here in Boston and I managed to oversleep, missing my planned online "Virtual Dance Fitness" class. I'd scheduled it in order to get myself out of bed at a good hour of the morning, but I'm not too stressed about that for today - it was perfect sleeping weather.

    Here is a photo taken by a friend and colleague with whom I had lunch yesterday - she captured this gorgeousness on her way home later in the day:


    I'm smelling woody and snuggled against the rain in Serge Lutens Un Bois Sepia. I think this was the first Lutens I ever bought a full bottle of, and it's been ages since I've worn it. I think I often end up overlooking it due to its relative simplicity - today I'm reminded that it's *beautiful* in its simplicity.



    Take every advantage of your Thursday!

    Un Bois de Sépia fragrance notes: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Opoponax, Cypress.

    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

    Please add my belated congratulations to NCAL and VR on their posting milestones.

    Quarry, I've been crossing my fingers and toes that you're happy with the results. IMHO, an A+ grade on that would be simply redundant.

    We're enjoying a shockingly pleasant start to August, and I'm enjoying the slightly cooler weather with a transitional season favorite: Parfum d'Empire Equistrius. Notes are orris, violet, rice powder, chocolate, ambrette, sandalwood, vetiver, and ambergris.

    ComDiva, I'm glad you enjoyed your lie-in. Sometimes that's just what we need. And what a gorgeous photo! That's one thing (of many) that I miss about New England -- the gorgeous autumn sunsets, sporting clouds shot through with glowing orange and cotton-candy pink. You got one a little early this year!

    Clouds are streaming over the mountains and it is overcast now but will be sunny later. I've been doing fix-it projects here and today I replace the front door lock and take out the tub doors. Then I think I might go to Saks and have a sniff around. I'm wearing Santal Kardamon.

    Clockwork, l actually find Bronze Goddess works better for me on the cooler, wetter summer days than in hot weather. lt really brings out the woody notes. ln fact, l think "Wood Nymph" would be a better name for this fragrance.

    Belated milestone congrats to VR & N.CAL!

    ComDiva, that's a stunning pic!

    Hello everyone I haven't been posting the last few days after the funeral of my bf's sister. It was a beautiful ceremony, but I felt all numb I did wear perfume though, and chose an old formulation( yr 2000) of Shalimar. After the funeral I felt exhausted and have mostly slept.Comdiva,I love the photo Sotd is Lolita Lempicka Mon Premier parfum.

    (((Oh, Ine))) Numb, sure. Understandable.

    Goodness, you guys. I wasn't expecting. Well, you made me make an aww-shucks pouty face with your sweet words. It's just a routine bone test for seniors, but, after needing a walker last winter and then working back to normal, it was symbolic. And I'm hoping it'll confirm what my smartscale says. Anybody else use a smartscale? Supposedly measures your muscle/fat/bone proportions and hydration level.

    Today was consumed with cleaning and making Chex mix for a gathering here tomorrow of high school friends. I don't think I've made Chex mix before, but it seemed appropriately retro for class of '73. Only now applying Across Sands for bedtime.
