Another Monday, but also Chocolate Cake Day, if that helps. Happy birthday to Alan Cumming! (And RIP Kobe Bryant.) What fragrance are you wearing?
I'm all out of 2nd Cumming, but while checking to be sure, I came upon CB I Hate Perfume On A Clear Day You Can See Forever. It won't last, but for the moment, I smell fantastic.
Reminder: on 1/31, celebrate Backward Day by reversing your usual perfume choice or routine in some way.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2020, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.

I’m wearing L’Heure Bleue, because that is what I grabbed, unseen, out of my decant box.
we were almost scent twins today. Had two in my hand, that one and Mahora. I went with the ladder.
I wore LHB yesterday, it never fails to enchant me.
Good morning NST. I’m wearing Grand Amour which suits the oddly springlike weather we’ve been having in CO.
Elisa, you smell very nice and I wanted to tell you I bought your book, The Word Pretty, at Elliott Bay Books this weekend. Looking forward to reading it sometime early this year!
Oh wow, thank you!!! Ah, I hope you like it!
Huh, you have a book published? I missed that part initially.
I am curious!
Forgive me Elisa
WithOUT the ‘P’ I !have been operating at 50% capacity for weeks now.
Can I gob ackwards and write this again ????.so sorry..
Haha no apologies necessary, we do have two Elisa’s here And yes, I have a few books of poetry and a book of essays out, one of my other lives!
I’m sure I will!
Oh you smell elegant ElisaP!
I just gave my dear friend a decant of that. I hope she will love it. Enjoy it.
? i love how ‘monogamous’ you are these days ?
LOL ? ?
It’s called keeping life simple. I also have had an all black wardrobe for a while. The uniform makes getting dressed in the morning a piece of ?.
Mahora from a generous NSTer
This morning a gave my Mr L a gran bacione before he walked out the door. A nod to Kobe, and how he held onto his lingua italaina.
My FIL in law arrived safe and sound back in Canada. He said to me last night on the phone, I already miss making my chai tea for you!
awwww, such a sweet FIL! You’re one lucky duck!
And you smell wonderful!
I have a “big birthday” coming up in March and he will be back then, inshallah
OMG, he is so awesome. My FIL once on a short visit and asked me to make him creme brulee, because he’d like some.
I love creme brulee. A local SF Restaurant (Napalito in the Sunset) makes one with a citrus reduction on top. It’s glorious stuff.
Che bella questa!
Aww, your FIL is sweet. And yes to kissing your sweetie every time you say goodbye.
Wearing Jorum Studios Phloem and heading to a coffee and spa date with a friend soon after two weeks of crazy work hours. The nasturtium in this scent really helps perk me up, perfect for a cloudy Monday morning!
Have fun with your friend teebear!
I wore Diorella the whole weekend!!! I really needed something joyful on these grey January days (a very friendly NSTer once gave me a few ml of the vintage juice in a swap ☺️)
Today I am wearing Le Cri.
Another good one to fight the winter blues ?
Yup i am really in need of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
A whole weekend of Diorella sounds like bliss, what a good idea.
It IS bliss ?
Wish I could send you some sun from San Diego! It’s beautiful today.
I am sampling DS&D Vio Volta… I am trying hard to focus on the violet, because otherwise what I am getting is mostly cat pee. This is my first cat pee perfume experience. I’m against.
Oh dear, cat pee is a deal breaker for me. I can never unsmell it.
I would have scrubbed it off by now..
I have gotten that obnoxious pee smell in several perfumes before. I had to scrub them off right away.
There are far cheaper ways for me to get a cat pee smell if I was so inclined. We had a cat once that didn’t like any form of bag, including luggage, gym bags, purses, plastic bags. You simply can’t get that smell out. The memories make me shiver. Don’t need a scent memory…
Gosh! That was terrible!
It was. We’d have to tell people to not put any form of bag on the floor. Before we were married, my husband traveled a lot, so we think she was taking out her irritation on bags…must have equated them with his absence. (She adored him and grudgingly accepted me.)
My cat has peed in my work bag a couple if times. I have to hang it up now ?
We had a cat like that too when I was growing up. New rugs? Forget it! Leaving your suitcase open – nooo.
Oh gosh, I had a room mate with a cat who hated my shoes. Her cat peed (or pooped) in every pair I owned. I loved the cat, so I couldn’t get mad. Just annoyed.
Blech! I don’t even know that I put that one on skin because I didn’t enjoy how it smelled from the sample vial.
You were wise.
Ugh, you are so right even though it’s backwards week you CANNOT UN-smell that one.
I had the same reaction to the fig in Mandragore and was so disappointed. We have a fig tree outside our bathroom window and in the warmth of the summer we can’t open our windows if the sun is shining.
Still I love the tree, but not any perfumes. I hope that you are scrubbed clean by now.
I also get cat pee from some fig perfumes, too. My Diptyque fig candle really did a number on me, lol.
Yes, and I’m wearing Diorella now after Jiji! The day has much improved.
I’ve never detected fig in Mandragore – either version. If I did I’d scrub it off immediately! I love both of them. Strangely enough, I do quite like Korres Fig body butter… It’s very dry, not sweet at all.
I’m voting with you, against.
The first time I ever paid attention to the smell of a boxwood hedge in the middle of summer, I very definitely got cat pee from it! Who knew that landscaping could smell bad?
I am in AC’s Ambre Nue. Despite it’s name it’s a little too strong for me. It’s gonna stay on the swap list
I wish! I have a 30 ml bottle ? hopefully it will find a good home in the next swapmeet
Oops! Hope you find a good swap then.
In Masque Milano L’Attesa. Needed something very beautiful and comfy to start facing a crazy week!
Happy Monday everyone!
Beautiful indeed! Hope it’s less crazy than anticipated ?
Thank you, Lillyjo! Crossing fingers that such a busy week at work doesn’t not blow up our minds and bodies here! ?. Tons of coffee, short walks around and positive attitude to the rescue ☕?♀️
Gosh, you smell lovely. I tried this one not too long ago and absolutely loved it (it has gone right to the top of my must buy FB list, together with its sibling Tango). I’m patiently waiting for a coupon.
Have a great week PL67!
L’Attesa is my second favorite iris after Chanel 28 La Pausa EdT. A perfect iris scent! I love it immensely and it is a must have in my collection. Full bottle worthy without any doubts. I have not tried Tango yet, but it is in my sample list to try. Masque Milano has many gorgeous perfumes!
Twisted Lily had 20% off this past weekend, but many times they extend the days so may be worth checking it out. The code was JANUARY2020.
Thank you ElisaP. There seem to be exclusions to that discount and Masque Milano is one of them. So close… ☹️
I need to try that one. Its notes are right up my perfume alley!
If you like iris I am sure you will love L’Attesa. It is a beautiful creamy, buttery iris with a subtle touch of leather and sandalwood. Gorgeous!
You smell amazing. I love L’Attesa.
Thank you! ?
You smell great! One of the top irises EVAH. You are making me
crave Champagne . It’s a great strategy for a lovely Monday.
Thank you, AngelaB! I was really craving for something soft and gorgeous this morning. I wish I could join you with a glass of champagne now! ?
Happy Monday!You smell lovely!!??
Thank you, Johanob! ?
Probably my all-time favourite iris.
I agree! It is so special and unique!
And we are twins today – thank you for the idea! We smell fabulous!
Please remind me your address, and I’ll send you a sample of Tango: I love it as well.
Hi twin ?! We definitely smell wonderful today!
Thanks a lot for your offer of Tango. I will email you later tonight when I get home.
You smell great! I have Tango too. Masque is a lovely house.
Thank you, Cazaubon. The few scents that I have tried from Masque Milano I have liked a lot. A house worthy to try.
I hope that perfume magic worked for you today.
Fortunately, it did! ?
I’m wearing Akro Dark. It’s the most sinful chocolate I’ve ever smelled, and I love it.
Wow. You have me curious now….
It’s an interesting line with 6 scents (or 5). The perfumer is Olivier Cresp. He also has an amazing coffee scent and a wonderful and quirky whiskey one.
Thank You Austenfan!
I’m hoping there is a discovery set.
I can’t wait to check out the coffee scent as well.
There is, available on the company’s website, it has all 6 scents. The coffee scent is called Awake.
You smell great!
I full bottle bought Akro Dark in NYC two weekends ago on one sample’s acquaintance. It won me over so fast.
It’s swiftly becoming a new fave, so many of my perfumes the last two years on the road were from endless-summer countries, so I’m only now building a small assortment of winter and autumn loves – important as I live in Canada!
Did you try any of the other Akro’s?
I didn’t because I was specifically looking for a chocolate dominant perfume (fell in love with Dark but am also slowly getting tempted by Bruno Fazzolari’s Corpse Reviver which I had a sample of).
I very much want to try Awake though!!!
If you like very dark chocolate, Montezuma makes a no-sugar added dark chocolate that is super decadent! Trader Joe’s sells it.
Thanks, I guess it would be hard to find in the Netherlands though.
Hello all, SOTD is my last few drops of Sonoma Scent Studio’s Egyptian Musk layered over Kuumba Made’s Egyptian Musk body lotion.
First day of semester and we’re already busy! Happy Monday all!
Oh, and while I didn’t have chocolate cake for breakfast, I had my home made gluten-free banana nut bread with chocolate chips, does that count??
If anyone loves dark chocolate, there’s one that’s sugar-free by Montezuma (you can get it at Trader Joe’s) that is really good!
And there was chocolate in my granola.
Not sure either of us really gets chocolate cake points, but it’s better than nothing
Sound like a great combo- I bet you smell great!
Wow your semester starts late! Lucky
Yeah, our semesters are a little odd but we get so much time off, I’m not complaining!
Thanks for reminding me that I must partake in a cupcake today!
SOTD is TDC De Bachmakov because it smells like summer and I was sluggish this morning and needed a bright pick-me-up.
Went out to a local French restaurant Saturday night with some friends and one of them ordered gelato for dessert. Tasted the black sesame flavor which was so good! It was a pale black color and tasted like sesame butter (tahini) with a dash of peanut butter. I’m still thinking about it! ?
And how terrible for Kobe Bryant and his daughter, and the rest of the people in that flight. Terrible tragedy.
I agree, it’s really sad for all of them. He was a remarkable man, My heart goes out to the families and friends. We just lost our best friend of over 40 years over the holidays and I am far too aware of how they must be feeling.
I am so sad over this, Elisa P. Los Angeles feels hushed.
I can imagine, as a former Lakers fan, myself …
So sad for his family, a tragic loss.
Oh, it’s Monday again…
I’m wearing L’Ivree Bleue from Ormaie. It’s quite an alluring mixture of rum, iris and violet with warm and sensual cocoa, benzoin, vanilla and patchouli in the base. Yummy!
It sounds decadent!
I like the fact that it’s powdery and sweet-oriental at the same time.
Wow! That sounds amazing!
It’s worth checking out.
Oh this sounds very very nice!
That sounds great!
I’m in Eau Duelle from a new decant. I haven’t ordered from ScentSplit for awhile and they’ve changed their decants. They are really nice! Thick glass and nice sprayer.
Today is my Saturday and the house is quiet because my daughter went back to school yesterday. I gave her a hug before I left for work yesterday and as I squeezed her she said to me “don’t cry.” Ugh, as hard as I try it’s like a reflex. I just can’t help it. I’m sure I’ll be fine by the end of the week, but today feels lonely and too quiet.
Hope you cheer up before the end of the week! You smell wonderful!
Thanks pl67! I’m sure I will, it would help if the sun would ever come out!
Aww. You are a good mama
Thanks yasmina.☺️ I do try, and I just love that girl.
I’d never heard of Scent Split and I’ve been wanting a decant of Eau Duelle myself. Interesting….
You should check them out! I think the selection is pretty good and they frequently send emails with discount codes.
Ahhhh thank you for reminding me of Scent Split – they have Lonesome Rider! I’m so delighted, I fell in love with it just after it was discontinued so this is a huge find for me.
I hope you can enjoy your day off, and feel better soon.
I hear ya, Hope you feel better and not so far away from her in a couple of days.
Thanks AngelaB.☺️…this too shall pass.
Hope you had a good day!Hugs!
I was wearing my sample of Eau Duelle last week wondering “why don’t I wear this more frequently?” The far dry down is so comforting. Perhaps I’ll finish my decant tomorrow (if I can find it)….
I went with Fleur de Peau today to combat the gloomy weather.
Always a lovely choice, hope the gloom was dissipated by it.
It was! Seems to be my lucky charm!
House twin. You smell great!
As do you MTG! I hope tomorrow feels a little lighter!
SL Cracheuse de Flamme, from a sample. It’s a very good rose, but it isn’t even the best rose Lutens ever made, and it definitely isn’t worth what they’re asking (€450, which is basically a joke).
It is really good, though.
Made me laugh, anyway!
I’m wearing PdM Oajan for a day of running errands.
Sample surfing this morning. Mousseline Pêche, which is just plain yummy.
Had a nice time at the art museum yesterday. We don’t have a huge Fabrege collection, it’s kind off small but it’s my favorite part of the art museum, my 2nd is the ancient collection. Then went to a little more upscale Italian restaurant. I had some creme brulee for dessert. Woke up in Cuir de Russie but now I am wearing Les Annees 25 BIS.
I’m in the last couple of spritzes from my travel size SSS Equestrian. Delightful!
I’m hoping to enjoy the bright sunny day, highs in the mid 60’s, and avoid the rising concerns of Wuhan, which seems to be a crafty little virus that can pack a pretty big punch, even to young, otherwise healthy people.
Here’s some info from a reliable source for those interested. Med-Cram is a great site if you’re interested in medicine at all. Wide range of topics, explained in a clear concise manner in just a snippet of time.
Thank You for this! Good stuff.
Estee Lauder Tuscany Per Donna
I’m in Francesca Bianchi Etruscan Water from the discovery set I’m trying thanks to hajusuuri. It’s a very nice citrus aromatic chypre. Yesterday evening I wore another FB, The Dark Side, to a free 30 minute concert of one of my favorite bands that took place in a record store. We had dinner at a Thai restaurant afterwards. Here were my notes on The Dark Side: at first lots of honey and iris then powdery animalic honey very similar to MFK CPLS. Love. I need to do side by side comparison.
Having a sinusy, sleepy Monday but had a really good weekend. I’m hoping thoughts of my good weekend carry me through the day.
Thanks for sharing rabbits flower, which one is your favorite FB so far?
I am hoping one or 2 show up at the next split meet.
Gosh, so far I’m hard pressed to pick favorites. I almost like all the ones I’ve tried so far equally well. I still have 3 to try and I’d like to give them all a full day’s wearing. Etruscan Water’s evolution was really nice today, and it lasted at least 8-10 hours.
I’m wearing Cuir de Lancome, because it called my name. This is how I usually choose my sotd, so I’m already failing the cp. I have no weather related complaints this week. I might next week though, so stay tuned. I’m riveting, I know ?
I have been too tired and too grumpy to follow the CP. Like you I am wearing what moves me.
I hope the grumpies move out soon!
Yes! When spring arrives LOL ? ?
Ha! I’m right there with you! I seriously can not wait!
Ha, I’m a failure at almost all the CPs. CdL in wonderful, but leans a little masculine on me. I have a FB at home in my fridge. Because I hardly wore it, it was doomed to refrigerator status along with Tauer Vanilla Flash and FM Musc Ravageur…??♀️
3 great ones!
I know! I was surprised I wasn’t smitten with them…?
I haven’t worn CdL in so long, you smell elegant.
You smell great!
Cuir de Lancome is a beauty! I wish I would have known about it when bottles were easier to find, and didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Well! I have so many updates to share this morning!
1. SOTD is an inexpensive solid incense perfume my mum picked up in Japan. Ostensibly this one (she gave me two) is incense and ambergris. It actually smell lovely, and even has some slight sillage for about 15 minutes. (I found this pic of it on the web–http://www.jueok.com/plugin.php?id=zhuzhu_taobao&mod=jump_url&num_iid=569957755865)
2. The above choice in perfume reminded me of a community project I once lobbied for–will suggest it again: Unicorn scents–perfumes you suspect almost no one else on NST owns or is very rarely worn. Sort of a variation on the game “I never” except this would be, “Bet you never. . . ”
3. My older son and I went to the Oakland Museum’s White Elephant Sale (a very popular local fundraiser–huge warehouse of everything under the sun, second-hand) and of course I went and scoped out the perfumes. There were a couple of vintage frags that I had never heard of. When I looked them up, one apparently was collectible–but for $75, I was not going to venture. Anyway, stupidly because I do not like Petite Robe Noire, I sprayed to test a full bottle of one of the flankers to see what it smelled like (it smelled like PRN, no surprise). ANYWAY, one of the volunteers at the sale (there were literally thousands of shoppers, and probably a couple hundred volunteers, it was crazy) snapped at me, “DON’T DO THAT! Now NO ONE will volunteer at this section, and there are people with allergies. You CANNOT do that!!!!!!!” Sigh. Well, she had the last laugh because I managed to get the perfume on my wrist band, and the perfume scent was like a cloud that followed me everywhere afterwards.
4. At said White Elephant Sale, I was perusing the books about traveling and travel memoirs (not guide books, but you know–travel stories), when I noticed a spine of a book I recognized. It was ‘The Hut Builder’ by our beloved Kanuka, sitting right there in a book-sale in Oakland, CA. (And no, it was not my old copy, thank you very much .)
5. And lastly, over the weekend I folded, and ordered a vintage bottle of Coco Chanel, edp, from an Etsy seller in Germany. She says it is from the 1990s. It is an edp, but in splash bottle. I paid about $90 plus tax, etc. So we shall see if I ever receive it, and whether it is still any good. Fingers crossed.
Weird (but very California). They should put a sign on them or not sell perfume if they think they’re doing a disservice to the world.
And how cool about Kanuka’s book!
Yes for nr 2!Count me in!Love that!
I second your CP idea!
Did you buy anything at all?
Yes, but not perfume! I purchased some beautiful mid-century glass vases, a wonderful old stationery box, a book of African American poetry from the 1750s through Jim Crow, and about 10 jazz and folk CDs. My son bought himself an Aran sweater, and a Canon camera with all sorts of bits and bobs from the 1960-70s?–he’s teaching himself photography.
The perfume was priced too high to buy on a lark. This fundraiser is hugely popular, and has been run by the same women for decades–so they know what they are doing. I guess I am not their target perfume shopper!
Great cp idea!
Love 3 & 4! Can’t wait to hear how 5 turns out. I’m also waiting on 2 packages from Germany. Crossing fingers everything gets here safely.
Added to list!
SOTD = Slumberhouse Baque
I decided to continue with Indie Week because I have more houses I would like to feature. I knew Slumberhouse is one of them as all the perfumes, extraits really, are superbly done and I have a good number of them.
Need to come back later this week and mention why, despite having gone to church yesterday, I may still b-rn in you-know-where ?
I’m happy to know I’ll have company in that toasty place! ??
Move over! ?
Happy for additional company! ?
There are WILD CROCUSES in my front yard today, I repeat, this is not a drill, the crocuses are sprouting, and today the sun won’t set until it is fully 5pm, so I’m declaring it Fools Spring this week and wearing Ostara to celebrate.
Whoops, this wasn’t meant to be a direct reply, but you smell wonderful, Baque is delightful
Very clever choice!
Ooh, tell me now, tell me now!?
Oh wow. I’m wondering what on earth you could possibly have done. ?
I wouldn’t have pegged you as a Slumberhouse fangirl, cool! I recently got Ore and Sibet. Can’t wait to hear about your indiscretions. Is it related to the BG beauty event?
About to start day two in my new job! Having got day one out of the way, I’m over the first hurdle of not knowing anything about anything, now at least I know where to find my team. I’m thinking about Mito today, something green to go with a yellow dress.
Yay, hope day 2 goes great Gaynor!
Off to a good start!
I’ve been somewhat a zombie today as I was seriously sleep-deprived. I am planning to go to bed early and hopefully sleep.
On the plus side I pampered myself in vintage Caleche extrait, sandalwood dream.
Oof!!That’s a gorgeous grand perfume!
Thank you Johano, it’s my most worn perfume.
Hope you get some sleep
Thank you so much Yasmina, I did.
Hope you sleep well!
Thank you, I did and woke up refreshed.
Fingers crossed for sweet dreams tonight!
Thank you Lillyjo, I don’t know if I dreamt but slept really well.
Hope you have a good night’s rest tonight!
Thank you Jalapeno, I did sleep long and well, thank God after two bad nights.
Chanel 28 La Pausa,because my days of hoarding and NOT wearing my most beloved perfumes are overrrr…Am doing my Top 5 of all time this week,and after one hint my colleague guessed correctly!What a beautiful Iris.Sigh….Inhale….sigh….Happy Monday wonderful smelling people!
Cheering you on and I can’t wait to see what your top 5 are….didn’t we see one last week?
Haha!Yes,you did!It might feature again later this week!
You smell terrific!!!!! My favorite perfume ever! I am eager to see what your Top 5 of all times are!!! ??
Thanks M!I remember you mentioning you “might enjoy” 28 La Pausa!Haha!??I’ll update every day on NST as I go through my Top 5 this week.
What was the hint?
Yes! Please share the hints!
I think i will do an incense week, starting with Full Incense today.
Looking forward to your incense week. That is one of my favorite notes, but it is not well represented in my collection!
I’m looking forward to hearing what your selections will be for this week.
As an incense fiend, you have my full attention.
Working on my decant of Chanel Beige edt, and when it’s gone it’s gone. This will be one of the harder decants to empty. Maybe I will go back to working on samples…
You smell great! I have a decant of Beige also, and I think it’s a great scent for work and overall lovely.
So here I am all ready for the CP – for once, I remembered what it was, and I was curious to see what everyone else was doing…but I guess y’all waiting for Friday?
Anyway, my “backwards” thingie today: Put on a completely unknown sample and wear it to work. Yup. Artisan Mon Numero 9, I believe. Thunked it, too, in a generous application.
Well….I’m glad it didn’t last very long.
Ooh, Robin! I’ve always wanted to try On A Clear Day! I’m putting a note in my calendar to book an appt at the factory in the spring.
Hmm… backwards. Well, I tend to only apply perfume in the morning, and if I don’t then I just skip it for the day. So for the cp, I’ve just applied Shalimar Souffle de Parfum.
It’s expensive, but at least it’s expensive for a reason!
I agree, but I think we’re in the minority here.
I’m going to have to think on what “backwards” would be for perfume. Nothing obvious comes to mind.
I’m in two sprays of Bengale Rouge today and I find that that second spray really made this scent pop. Its drydown is spectacular, and I would want a bottle or at least a decant of this a lot more if the drydown didn’t remind me so much of Jitterbug.
Speaking of really badly wanting things, I’ve nearly polished off my travel spray of Tam Dao and am trying to decide if it’s special enough for another travel spray/FB purchase. On the one hand, it’s gorgeous. On the other, surely I have something else in my collection that can fit that mood. No? Maybe? Suggestions?
You could always wait to re-buy it until you find yourself really craving it again.
I’m craving it constantly! But it’s possible that’s only because I no longer have any.
Fragrancenet is selling travel sprays and full bottles of both EDT and EDP.??
You are so bad!
Oof! You are evil!
With your collection, you probably do have something similar in mood to Tam Dao. However, I personally can’t think of anything that it smells like. So it’s a coin toss.
Hmm. I’ll think on it more
Monday, Monday. Bleah. Why did you Monday all over me today?
SOTD = Coromandel EdT, from the sample stash and hajusuuri. I have another half spritz in this, and then it will be thunked.
Smelling perfect, Jalapeno!
It was almost a pity to use such a lovely perfume on such a yucky day. Today was a stinker.
Yeah, I usually avoid using really good perfume at bad times. Hope tomorrow is better!
Today didn’t start off bad, it just kind of developed into a mess. I’m not quite sure how it all happened.
Commando today, except for Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender hand therapy cream at bedtime and in the morning.
As others have mentioned about their garden plants, my spring-blooming bulbs are very confused. I’ve got snowdrops up, and daffodil leaves starting to come up. I believe I said a few days ago that I wasn’t worried about the snowdrops.
‘Ice Follies’ is an early-blooming daffodil, especially the patch that grows near the west side of the house, but this is *too* early. ‘Ice Follies’ is super-hardy to the “you can’t kill it with an ax” level. Some of its leaves may get frosted, and some of its flowers may freeze, but I have faith that the bulbs will be just fine and that it will flower again next spring.
Yesterday I finally planted crocus that I’d gotten in October. I’ll see if they bloom — if they don’t get eaten. If I’m remembering correctly, they need a few weeks of chilling. I’ll see what all happens to the various spring bulbs I’ve got as the months go on.
I have not even gone to check, my snowdrops are probably up too.
You’re a bit more south, so most likely. I know Winterthur’s spring-blooming bulbs and the daffodil plantings around the Delaware Art Museum area are a couple of weeks ahead of where I live.
So I started off in TDC Adjatay Cuir Narcotique, then later added some il Profumo Tawaf. I think I will top off with Spiritueuse Double Vanille for bed.
You know, I went back and looked at Angela’s perfume cabinet wright up featuring you. You have a stunning perfume collection!
Thank you, it is a bit excessive but fun. I’m trying to keep it under control without much success.
Nothing is excessive if it brings you joy ?
