Just A Quickie ~

I have only moments to write this (and probably not well, at that) as I'm running a bit late and still need to hop in the shower, wash the 'do, dress and bolt off on the bike to work in this chilly-yet-not-freezing 39 degrees F air.

First, I may already be losing my brand new perfume lab! Yes, my beautiful hardwood floored, antique paneled, built-in cabinetry'd perfume lab may soon be taken over by unexpected new roommates! Aaaarrrrggghh! But what can you do? Allow someone to become homeless because you want to mix a bit of perfume here and there in a gorgeously appointed studio? Oh, with some heartfelt hesitation I answer no. People are far more important than things, even things which make people (me, me, me!) so very happy and spiritually fulfilled. And, as I've said time and again, there is more than one way to skin a . . . critter!

I'm finally working on finalizing the formula for Primordial Scents. It's been a long and difficult road getting in the groove for this, one that officially began September 3rd, 2011 when the world went a little topsy-turvy. But in all actuality, it began unofficially years and years and years ago, like 18 or 19 years ago. That's a long time to try to make something work, don't you think? I think I gave it a fair shot. I realize this doesn't make much sense ~ I haven't been working on the formula for 18 or 19 years, but on something else -- my life! Or the life I was trying to create. You know, sometimes someone else's idea of what a life should be becomes a huge obstacle in the pursuit of creativity and true happiness. It's the old square peg, round hole fiasco . . .

But, yes, the Primordial Scent formulation -- mmmm, I'm hoping I haven't become so rusty these past few months of coveting yet not working on perfume that I am able to create something that isn't entirely amateurish. It's not quite like riding a bike . . .

So, yes! Time to wash up and ride off into the sunrise!


  1. You are finishing with it? I haven't even started! :D

    Happy new year dear J.

  2. Keep going Big Strong Mama! You can do it!

  3. You! Rusty? Never!! :-)

    Tis hard to get back into the groove again after have a break, I'm in the mood for perfuming but need some focus. Think I might do some essence evaluations to gather the frame of mind I need.

    Have been revisiting some of the perfumes the NNAPA perfumers have created, especially around the wedding theme.... so lovely!! I wore your perfume out to dinner recently, and whilst I feel it is an autumn/winter perfume, the extra body heat from our summer made it sparkle too. So gorgeously sensual!

    Enjoy your new house, new roomy and renewed perfuming passion!

    Big hugs
