It’s all about Milk and Cookies

This is from Patty — As you can tell, we are still bothering our guy friends to write for us, and Lee (Leopoldo) has been so kind as to give in to my pestering. If this keeps up, we’re gonna… Continue Reading

Caron Narcisse Noir – sultry perfume

The other day I was in the office, doing one of those insanely dull things that allows me to avoid getting a real job (in this case, looking through our files for for a tax document) and I realized –… Continue Reading

A Caroning we go

New pictures of the snow. And since my TV isn’t working as the Dish is covered in snow, are those stupid TV people acting like we all are dead or something? Criminy, it’s just snow, we’ve always had plenty of… Continue Reading

December Candy

I love Monday. You know why? Because Hecate and Buckethead, the 4-year-old twins, are back at preschool. It’s been really warm here. Yesterday they got tired of waiting for snow, so they made their own — two boxes of Kleenex… Continue Reading

Caron had to have a scent that is an all-out smoldering siren, and Narcisse Noir is the little vixen that fills that slot on the Caron line-up. Created by Ernest Daltroff in 1911, this was the perfume that really started… Continue Reading

Mona di Orio Nuit Noire – Best Perfume for?

Mona di Orio Nuit Noire – part skank and part lady. Who does it remind me of?  A perky little cheerleader dressed in cashmere twinsets who keeps flipping up her skirt at the boys to get them to go behind… Continue Reading

Smells Like Santa

First: our spam filter catches tons of porn every day, and I am grateful – and you should be too, because most of it is so sick and wrong it makes me yearn for the v!agra spam of yore. But… Continue Reading

Beauty and the Beast

Today´s post is dedicated to two fragrances I can´t believe don´t get more play among fragrance lovers, at least that I´ve noticed. I´m posting them together because the contrast amuses me – one is so beautiful, and the other one´s… Continue Reading

Eat My Words

Remember last week when I yammered about how cedar was such a disaster on me, and even a little bit tended to ruin a scent? How it´s all acrid armpit? Sure you do. That would be the exact day I… Continue Reading
