Ahoy! ’tis Almost-Friday, and International Talk Like a Pirate Day! What fragrance be ye wearin?
Me: still at the beach. No pirates, no perfume. Last night was a (happy) repeat of the night before... Azemour Les Orangers from Parfum d'Empire.
Reminder: on 9/20, wear a fragrance by Laboratorio Olfattivo, Lubin, La Via del Profumo, Les Parfums de Rosine or Liquides Imaginaires, if you have one. Partial credit for any other small-ish brand that starts with the letter L.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2019, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.

Ahoy mateys! ?
Iris Nazarena for me today.
Beautiful picture, Robin!
In Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose (thanks to a very generous NSTer). Perfect for a very crisp, cool, sunny, still summer day. Love it!
Isn’t that lovely? It almost looks like it was a pleasant place to work, but it probably wasn’t.
Looks like we will have nice weather for the next week, if the forecast is to be believed.
The weekend looks gorgeous! Crossing fingers! ?
Mon Guerlain Intense today since I just stopped by the department store on my way to The Strand.
Tea Marco Polo
How do you like the intense version?
First I should say Mon Guerlain in the original version last about 5 seconds on me, I think because I can’t smell the musk (or that is what Robin thinks, and I think she is right) I smell more vanilla in this one but that could just be my skin that tends to project sweets more.
So after 2 subway rides, washing my hands several times and the dishes I can say that I still smell it! Which is surprising …
I am on the Guerlinade dry down of musk and their vanilla..comfy for this weather today.
You smell fabulous, Robin. I’m in (since it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day I’ll say it this way) Cuirrrrrrrrr Cannage. Arrrrrrr.
Yo ho ho!
That photo is beautiful and I’d love to be there right now sitting and gazing out to the sea.
On 2nd up of coffee at the moment and 2nd day of Libre by YSL.
Sprayed an extra spray and probably a bit too much, this stuff is strong! But like it very much.
I really liked Libre. I wonder if they will have body products?
I will be very surprised if they don’t.
Ahoy to you too, mateys! SOT(y)D was Acqua Di Gio Essenza Pour Homme. I liked it, and the gal who works at the bookstore where I stopped in on my break liked it too, saying she’s not a big fan of ‘girlie’ perfumes, and that she may look this one up for her husband.
I love it when strange people stop you in the middle of somewhere and compliment you on your scent. No greater honor.
Oh, wow, what a gorgeous picture. Wish I were there right now. I can look at a body of water for hours. Take a chair, some music, maybe a book of poetry… okay, back to reality now.
Wearing No. 19 Poudre today. It’s so quietly lovely.
I’m with you on being able to sit by the water and look it for hours. It’s so relaxing.
Madison is a great place to do just that.
For sure! We live close enough to hop on the bike path to the union and have spent many evenings just looking at the lake and watching the sunset. It’s one of my favorite parts of summer.
Did you visit this year? You’ll have to let me know if you are ever in town!
I wanted to visit this year but it didn’t work out. Maybe next year!
You smell divine!
You smell just wonderful.
I’m wearing CdG Grace. I got a compliment on it, which is always validating.
I love that one! You smell fabulous.
Good morning Y’all! If FriYAY doesn’t hurry and get here, I’m gonna walk the plank Maties!
Wearing a ‘fume I haven’t smelled in many many years: Britney Spears Curious. At the moment it’s wearing a bit heavy for my taste, but the drydown is really great (and the Perfume Grinch is off today)…..
Smelly factoid: Waaaaay back in 2004, my brother-in-law worked in marketing for Elizabeth Arden, and he was one of the guys in charge of launching Curious! He traveled for MONTHS to different dept stores making sure the displays were right and the SAs were trained, and he also scheduled Ms. Spears’ appearances at some of the big city dept stores. That’s the ONLY claim to fame to perfume that I have…. HA HA HA I remember having some Curious swag, such as t-shirts and bags and such….. Hard to believe that was 15 yrs ago!
What a great story!
Great story – thanks!
Visiting my BFF in Switzerland – yeahhhh – wearing samples. Today Chanel Paris-Biarritz, the only Les Eaux I don’t have a FB of. And I know why. A bit too tart for my taste. Unfortunately I haven’t seen any Andy Tauer perfumes here yet….
Also getting mentally ready for fall and considering buying Organza Indence to help me with that.
Have a wonderful time! You smell great and yes to the Organza Indecence for fall and winter.
Adding my vote
I will be traveling tomorrow to a cabin in southern Ohio (can’t wait!!), so I’m doing the CP today with Lalique Encre Noir. Got my decant in the swapmeet and it arrived just in time to participate in the CP. I’m really into it so far. The opening citrusy-woody notes remind me a bit of Atelier Cologne Bois Blonds, which is another favorite of mine.
Enjoy your weekend getaway!
Encre Noir is so good!, especially at this time of year I think.
Have a great time!
Have fun, you smell great today.
Those weekend plans sound awesome!
I’m in Guerlain AA Nerolia Bianca thanks to a generous NSTer. It’s muggy here again today and it just started to sprinkle but I can still see glimpses of the sun off in the distance, so there is hope.
My husband, daughter and I have tickets to the Downton Abbey premiere tonight! I’m so excited! The three of us started binging the series last fall after the bigs left for college. We had no idea when we finished last winter that they would be making a movie. The timing is perfect.
I smelled the Ginger AA at bloomies today
Loved! If you love gingery perfumes..
I think its perfect for fall
Enjoy the movie! I have one more perfect day today, rain for the weekend.
Random question: did you ever listen to Z-Rock, the radio station, back in the day?
Thanks! Yeah, it’s supposed to rain here all weekend too but it’s my weekend to work so I’ll be inside anyway.
Where was Z-rock based out of?
I’m actually not sure. I could only get it on A.M radio. They only played only the current heavy metal of the time. From Metallica, Hanoi Rocks, Faster Pussycat.. etc
I was just trying to think of a band this morning and remembered Z-Rock. I thought you, or maybe Jalapeno were fellow listeners.
I don’t remember listening to a.m. radio, so I’m guessing I haven’t heard of it.
Let me know if you think of the band! Now I’m curious.
OMG!!!! I remember Z-Rock. I would occasionally hear them in Denver… they were a syndicated radio network based In Dallas according to Wikipedia. I had to look up that part. ??
Ha! I knew I couldn’t be the only one! The band I am trying to remember was a guy band but had a female singer. They were glam rock, and I only ever heard them on Z-Rock. I think thier name started with a D? Idk.. It’s been making me crazy.
Unfortunately, the band doesn’t ring a bell with me. Epica is long after Z-Rock’s demise, as is Within Temptation.
The Downton movie is second on my list, first is the Linda Ronstadt documentary.
I hope you have fun tonight!?
Enjoy the movie! A co-worker got me interested in DA, so I binge-watched the series.
Wanted something sweet and fun today, went with Adam Levine for Her.
I keep hearing that one is really good!
It is, and cheap too
Really good and really inexpensive! I score of this bottle at TJ Maxx years ago for seven dollars!
Why is it that I always proof read my comments before I post but never find errors until after I send? ?
Amber Flash… meh…
It must be bad if it hasn’t given you an ear worm flanker.
I’m wearing 10 Corso Como for a day of the dentist and meetings. The dentist went better than expected. My new dentist works quickly, which I greatly appreciate.
2 more days of temps in the eighties, I’m soaking it up!?
You smell great! Your temps will be visiting us during the weekend and until Monday. Soak up that sun!?☀️. We might not be able to do it again this season!
So true! ????
A great choice of perfume, so glad to know your session at the dentist wasn’t too punishing, Lillyjo and that you were with a new dentist after the bad experience some time back.
Thank you, I am happy that I switched.
Enjoy your warm weather…the equinox is coming soon!
Yes it is.. I am counting on you to relay your spring and summer to keep me warm?
I’m glad to hear that the new dentist is working out for you. ?
Glad your new dentist is working out! I’ve had horrible ones, and now more recently, mine is great.
Off to lunch and then Linda Ronstadt movie. Hoping for plenty of footage with her singing.
I’m thinking Cuir de Lancôme today…it makes me feel sophisticated and beautiful. In my jeans….?
Happy (actual, lol) Birthday! CdL is a perfect choice! Mmmm.
Happy Birthday LizzieB!
Happy birthday, and enjoy the movie! I’ll be seeing it with a buddy tomorrow afternoon. ?
You will enjoy it I hope. What a vocalist she was. My husband was talking to some earlier today who didn’t know her music at all. Made me sad for him.
Happy Birthday! Now you’ve got me singing ‘Willin’ ! We had fun finding all the town names referenced in that song as we travelled west. That started us backtracking to the lyrics. I am so glad to hear there’s a documentary, she was amazing. And did you know that The Eagles were her backup band – put together for HER!! Cool.
Happy birthday. Remember Linda Ronstadt’s blue bayou outfit? Waistcoat, scarf, jeans and boots…so cool…so you are in good jeans company
Hah! No one wore jeans and boots like Linda.
Thanks all! I can recommend the movie. Good interviews and a lot of Linda’s voice.
Happy Scented Birthday LizzieB! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed your movie. ??
Happy birthday! I love Linda’s voice.
Sycomore for a busy Thursday.
Hope it all went well!
AdP Iris Nobile EDT which works perfectly for this cool, sunny day. I broke open the new-to-me can of New Orleans’s Cafe du Monde French toast and chicory blend coffee. Really good! I bought it at the local pho restaurant. I’m curious about the Vietnam/New Orleans connection (French colony?). I saw a documentary once about Vietnamese funeral rites and they are similar to a NO style funeral procession.
I have that coffee too..
I should make some
Viet Nam was formerly French Indochine, or part of it, but the French were fighting various Vietnamese guerilla armies that wanted an independent (and Communist) Viet Nam for some years. The French Foreign Legion military compound at Dien Bien Phu was besieged by Vietnamese forces and eventually conquered.
There was a legacy of some Vietnamese people speaking French and being familiar with some aspects of French culture and cuisine. So there is a colonial connection there.
Today I am wearing Hermes Neroli Dore lotion, and its perfect for the heat and humidity we are having here today.
It’s such a nice scent, I have the lotion in a little sample tin.
Oh, I really should buy that, I keep saying I will and then I don’t.
Good morning, fragrant friends! So happy to get to check in today. I’ve been in a house hunting whirlwind in Cali and trying not to get discouraged. We have found two we liked, put in offers, and were outbid. Definitely a seller’s market out there right now.
Traveled to Alabama yesterday to see my son and for a cousin’s wedding. It’s nice to relax from the move and see family. I’m wearing No. 5 lotion and body powder right now (my aunt’s) and may top it with a little spray of the edt when I leave the house. I usually don’t love it it but the body lotion and powder work for me!
Good luck with house hunting, hang on the right one will come along. Glad you had a family event.
Good luck! happy hunting
Nice to see you! Sorry the hunting is becoming frustrating and I hope you find something perfect! How’re you liking Cali otherwise?
And, you smell great!
Hope the hunt goes well! You smell great, No.5 body products are a real treat, especially the powder.
Good luck with the house hunting. It may take a while, so please don’t get discouraged.
I really like the body lotion too! I can’t wear No5, maybe L’Eau….
You smell great!
I’m in La Via del Profumo’s Honey Bee edp with a dab of the absolute – my Goldilocks honey fragrance.
I love honey fragrances so will check this out. I had a nice L’occitane honey scent once that came in an old fashioned waxed cardboard honey tub, with the bottle inside. Discontinued of course.
It is fall here in my part of the PNW. Sometimes we have heat and sun well into October, but this year cool temps and rain arrived about ten days ago and appear to be staying. The furnace came on this morning and I think I will have to put the summer clothes in the guest room closet until next year. I get to wear all my big orientals now! But today I think I’m going with Saffran Troublant.
One “f” in Safran!
Same here in Portland! Here’s to big Oriental perfumes!
Safran Troublant is excellent for transitional fall weather
Wearing Misia edt this afternoon, it’s very warm and sunny today, and I usually prefer it when it’s chilly outside, but it’s still nice.
I dropped the kids at school film night, and took the dog for a long walk in the woods, the autumnal light was so beautiful, shimmering and golden dappled through the trees, the air smelt of apples from the windfalls on the ground, there are branches overloaded with elderberries, and blackberries, as well as bright ruby red hawthorn berries and rosehips. I’ll go back with the children and a couple of baskets soon.
Thank u to everyone who sent me such kind and comforting words of support yesterday, I’m so grateful and thankful for many things, this wonderful place is among them.
Sending perfumed hugs and gratitude to u all.
Your walk sounds wonderful. Yesterday morning was one of those perfect days here, cool but with sun, no wind and I found a beautiful spot on the hill with a view of the glassy harbour, with the big Pacific ocean beyond and just sat. Someone has planted a whole forest of natuve trees which will grow big and attract more nectar feeding birds like the Tui…anyway, from now on that spot is the Mayfly field.
Kanuka, thank u, what a beautiful and tranquil place that must be..I’m honoured, I really am touched.
I am going to look the Tui bird up, it sounds so beautiful!
I missed reading yesterday so I hope whatever the situation that you are doing alright. Thanks for the lovely description of your walk
Thank u ringthing, I’m feeling much better now that I am past the anniversary.
SOTD- Marni Marni, perfect for today gorgeous weather. It is sunny, warm and quiet outside.
If anyone would like to sell a small decant (5 ml) of Chanel Paris Biarritz please send me a message at lasto4ka5 in the land of geemale dawt comme. Thank you!
You smell great plyushka!
1) The rains are HERE. Which is fine! The nasturtiums are loving this weather and have actually never looked better; I have trimmed them for salads and pesto and with all the rain and mild temps they have only thrived!
Perversely, the long suffering basil have decided, at long last, to make their presence known and grown like crazy. *rolls eyes* absurd!
2) Am in Fresh Cream Soft Suede- very easy to wear musky warm scent that is very light.
Nasturtiums are so cheerful. Glad yours are perking up!
They are so CUTE. The flowers are cute, the leaves are darlings! And they are edible- like a sweet watercress! So if you bake a cake, you could decorate with the flowers, and the leaves are wonderful and unexpected in salads! You could even use the seedpods (when green) in a pesto.
I finally remembered to pull out my little decant of La Cri de la Lumiere so that is my SOTD.
Of course, you are smelling beautiful!
? So do you my dear!
I was poking around Andy Tauer’s blog last night and if you get a full bottle, you can get a mini of his latest offering. The mini isn’t free and it would work out to be almost $10 more than Luckyscent. Wearing Au Coeur de Desert today.
I got complimented this morning on my perfume (at the dog park) – but I wasn’t wearing any! So maybe I’ll stick with Eau de Commando for the rest of the day.
That’s hilarious ?
Ha! What did you wear yesterday? Maybe they could still smell it?
That’s what I was thinking – Amouage Lyric. But post shower? I rarely get compliments – especially if people don’t know that I like perfume. Maybe it was the Nivea bodylotion. Or the fact that I just smelled way better than the dog park, at any rate
Nivea has a nice smell to it!
It does! I saw on Fragrantica there is even a perfume.
This made me laugh!
Rather funny about your non-perfume compliment!
Another day of SB Gypsy while at the salt mines. ✌?
Love your new avatar- Your skin looks flawless!
Ha! I did it because I have chunked up so much I need a daily reminder, and this is the only blog I visit daily without fail. I need to really work on this over the next several months. The complexion and lashes are courtesy of an instagram filter. ?
Ah, interesting incentive. I will have to think about how I can put all the problems I need to work on into an avatar.
Not sure it would work for ALL problems, or even this one. Desperate times call for desperate measures…I think I’m trying to shame myself into losing this added baggage.
Seriously, you are saying you don’t think I can put reminders of ALL my neuroses and life goals and external stresses on this 50px circle? LOL…
I think you look lovely as well!
Thank you! Better looking via doctored photos!?
Fleetwood Mac are playing here tomorrow so I will join you in Gypsy…even though I’m not going to the concert
Good luck with the salt mines! Think of the miles walked as “exercise”.
Thank you! But I need to STOP with the sweets! ??♀️Ugh!
Smelling amazing in La Via del Profumo Tawaf. When I kissed my boyfriend goodbye this morning, told me I smell like flowers. ?
I just got invited to go kayaking on Lake Union, which is the gorgeous lake right in the center of Seattle, on Saturday. My friend also has a gift certificate for a really great Mexican restatement on the lake, so we’ll get lunch there afterwards. I’ve never been kayaking before. I anticipate my flabby arms being quite sore for a while.
You’ve never been kayaking before?! Omg, you are in for a treat! Kayaking is one of my favorite things ever! Being so close to the water, the sound the paddle makes as it goes in and out of the water…sigh. I hope you love it! Please do report back, and enjoy the Mexican lunch!
I know, I’m weird! I’m not the most outdoorsy person, though I really should be since I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest now. I think I’ve only been canoeing and that was way back in Girl Scout camp. I’m excited to be on the water!
I’ve never been kayaking either! And I’m not particularly outdoorsy either. And I was also invited to go kayaking in CT on the sound this weekend, so potentially kayak twins!
Yours sounds really fun and Mexican food is a nice perk.
I hope you both go. It’s so much fun!
How funny that we’ve both never been kayaking and were invited to do it on the same day.!
Kayaking is great!! You will have a blast. And Saturday is supposed to be nice here so yay. On the plus side, I am never as sore as I think I will be after kayaking.)
Yes, the weather should cooperate on Saturday! Thanks for the reassurance on not being too sore.
Kayaking is such fun, have a great time and wear lots of sunscreen because it can be brutal
Tawaf will be my scent for the CP tomorrow
And joining in with everyone else — kayaking is the best thing ever, although rivaled by paddleboarding on a lake.
Someone else who has never kayaked. Or been in a canoe for that matter.
It takes a while to get good form, but if you do it right your arms shouldn’t hurt (well, on your first outing they probably will).
You want to use torso rotation to power the stroke from your core, not your arm muscles. I also find it helpful to think about pushing the paddle at the top of the stroke rather than pulling the paddle through the water at the bottom of the stroke. A good kayak educator once said something like “you’re not shoveling water.”
Take a few minutes to watch a video on YouTube, it will really help with your ergonomics and not being sore in the wrong places. (When I paddle it’s my latissimus dorsi that are sore, not my arms, and it’s the good kind of sore!)
Thanks for the good advice!
Joining the pro-kayak party!! Any chance you’re going to Aqua Verde Paddle club for lunch? That’s a great post kayak place to eat!
No, we’re going to Little Water Cantina.
Sounds nice!!! Have fun!!
Update – we ARE going to Aqua Verde Paddle Club. My friend was confused.
Sampling Guerlain Embruns d’Ylang and thinking of going to the MFA for an afternoon of looking at art
Do you mind sharing your thoughts about this fragrance? I love ylang-ylang and I am curious about Guerlain take on it. Didn’t care for the most of fancy Guerlains with the exception of Angelique Noire and Neroli Outrenoir.
The salty note is very strong on me so it tempers the custardy ylang. Cross of Asia is still my favorite ylang scent
Thank you for the input- I will test Ed’Y with caution, as I am not a fan of pronounced salty notes. Still searching for the perfect ylang scent, I thought M Micallef My Ylang would fit the bill, but it was waaaay too sweet to become the one for me
Arte Profumi Sucre Noir for me today – beautiful sweet vanilla.
I never said thanks for your kind comment on our dog’s ear mites. She’s cured now. Hope your doggie is fine after her bee sting. PS When my eldest picked up lice at his daycare centre (I was working full time at the time), my MIL (who had never worked a day outside of the house in her life) said icily: “MY children NEVER had lice”.
I’m glad your dog is better! Mine is too. As for your mom’s comment, well, she just got lucky!
Bulgaaarrrrrrri Black for me today.
A perfect pirate fragrance name!
HA! good one!
Frrrrrapin Carrrrravelle Epicee today. Filled with all the spices and rum and sandalwood booty the pirates have stolen.
Oh, perfect match of day and fragrance! You smell marrrrrrrrrrvelous.
Thumbs up! ??
lutens Chergui today from a decant. Two sprays last a whole day.
We are getting new windows installed, so our apartment is partially covered up. Hope they will be done tomorrow. Next winter will hopefully be warmer inside.
Chergui, to me, is best the next day when one catches whiffs on clothes and scarves. On skin, it tends to be just a “li-ittle bit” too much for me.
I tried to understand Chergui for years, the notes sound like something I would love but I didn’t like it. Then I received some from someone here as a freebie or a swap and all at once, it smelled gorgeous. I’m glad that I can enjoy it now.
New windows will make a big difference!
It reminds me a lot of a stronger Bulgari Black.
Oooh, I will have to compare those two now. Thank you for the tip!
Trying samples I have to follow up on some last minute swapping I inquired about. A couple of hours earlier: Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman. Strong, and it was wearing me. A couple of the folks I contacted were interested in incense, so a little while after I washed off the OJ Woman I tried Acqua di Parma Colonia Mirra Eau de Cologne Concentree. I find it very, very nice, but it’s just the sort of thing Mom particularly loathes.
I love most the other early OJs, but Woman wears me too, ditto with Tolu.
With the weather temporarily a little cooler, I’ll be able to go outside to try some of the heavier perfumes. lol. Tolu has notes I think I’d like, but it will probably wear me, too. Sampaquita was much lower-key than I’d been expecting.
Sampaquita did not capture my interest. But I really like Frangipani, Osmanthus, Champaca, Ta’if & Isfarkand.
All heavy on the iso e super, so if you don’t like iso e super they’re hardly worth trying.
Thank you for the information. I’m never quite sure how much iso e super I’m sensing from a fragrance. Rayleighblue sent me an Escentric Molecules sample some time ago — I need to try that to see what exactly I’m able to perceive of it. But I got the Ormonde Jayne discovery set a few months ago, and I still haven’t gotten the chance to try most of the samples in that.
I think if you try the EM, then the OJs I mentioned, you will quickly see the commonality
Silk Way. Cheap thrill. Wish I could find another bottle.
So easy to find at discounters! I had a small bottle that I ended up giving away a few years back- it was similar to Barbara Bui which I already had and preferred.
In Private Collection Jasmine White Moss, my bottle is well on its way to being emptied but I have 2 BUBS which is a bit ridiculous but this scent stand in not only for itself but for Chanel Cristalle too so I know I will be using them.
Exactly my feelings about JWM. I only have the one bottle, but since I scooped it up when it was in the stockroom about to be sent back, it still felt like a triumph.
So glad you could get it in the nick of time, and the story behind it must make you treasure even more, I adore wearing this one.
Friday here, and I was planning to wear Idole by Lubin, but it doesn’t seem right with my clothes, so I’m going with Sortilège.
Le Galion and Lubin aren’t very similar words, but I tend to mix them up, so I’m connected to the CP in my own muddled way
Which is always the best way.
Joining the CP in Lubin Idole today and yes, I DO smell great. Smells like fall but it’s not too heavy for the hot weather we’re experiencing right now.
Thursday is out to lunch day with my mother. Two weeks ago she suffered an esophageal blockage that required ten hours in the ER before surgery was performed, the second time this has happened. Now she’s gone from a soft diet to a liquid diet which isn’t fun when you’re 92 and life’s pleasures disappear one by one but she had part of a strawberry milkshake today and enjoyed getting out. On the way home, I drove by a spectacular dahlia garden so she could see it; it’s that time when zinnias and dahlias are waning and chrysanthemums aren’t blooming yet. Come on, fall!
Oh, so sorry about your Mom! Glad she can still get out and have a milkshake.
Durga by D.S.& Durga – lovely tuberose bomb – I love this stuff.
LOVE this perfume, you smell amazing! Currently saving my pennies for it.
Gotta try this one!
In a spritz of Puredistance Antonia, which is reasonably long-lasting.
Ahoy all ye perfumed scallywags! Ye be smelling grand as always! ?
And now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, back to mundane reality. It is now Day 2 of the Worst Back Ache Ever, at least for me. Advil does take the edge off. Some very gentle stretching and a hot shower have also helped. I honestly have not the slightest clue what I did to make myself so stiff and sore. WTH?
SOTD = Tom Ford Moss Breches, from the sample/decant stash. A quiet Tom Ford scent does exist on my skin… and this is it.
Back aches are funny that way. Sometimes it’s your sleep position or a wrong move, etc.. I hope you feel better soon!
Thanks Petunia! I just need to take it easy for a few more days, I think.
Sorry about your back and I hope it straightened itself out soon! I know that every time I end up sleeping on my stomach, I end up in all sorts of back/neck pain that takes a day to resolve.
And I always pronounce that perfume “Moss Breeches” in my head ?
I think that maybe something did happen one night when I was sleeping. Sharing a bed with cats does have its hazards. ?
I have also pronounced it as “Moss Breeches”, and have a great vision of a Renaissance faire costume to go with it.
I’m really sorry about your back. Like Petunia said, sometimes it’s just one wrong move. I’ve never even heard of the TF your wearing, sounds like I’m not missing much.
Also, I left you a comment under mtg post.??
Moss Breches is one of the old, discontinued TFs. It may be quiet but it is a lovely chypre.
Hope you feel better soon. Tomorrow should be a better day!
Thanks! It hurts less today than it did yesterday; that was really bad.
Oy! Back pain is the worst! I hope yours is resolved ASAP!
It’s no fun, that’s for sure.
It’s the first month of Spring here in oz and I’ve been wearing my most recent purchase-Diptyque L’Ombre non-stop. Plus I snagged one of the limited edition bottles with the pink hue, obsessed!
That is a great bottle. Happy spring to you ?
Hello from across the ditch! Smelling good
Just left 10 minutes ago to go home as there were 2 unexpected calls after 5pm.
I repeated yesterday’s SOTD = SL Fourreau Noir
It was so so good I decided to wear in again today!
In other news, I got the case files yesterday and confirmed that I was indeed missing 38 pages from when I requested the file Wu backbwhen I was preparing for the Level 2 appeal. Both the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) and the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) withheld information from me. I can prove a pattern of withholding information by the QIO and need to figure out how to cast doubt on the SNF misunderstanding what I had asked for and still withheld the relevant info. I have my work cut out for me tomorrow after work and on Saturday!
Gosh, I admire your energy and fortitude with this issue! Rock on✌?
Wow. Glad to hear that you have the case files in hand. Good luck!
I am echoing Deva- I have a lot of respect for such determination! I hope for the best outcome in your case , Hajusuuri!!!!
Me too, get’em Hajusuuri!
Wishing you the best of luck!
You go hajusuuri! Best of luck in your quest. And you still smell(ed) great.
