The odds of this actually coming in at 15,000 words are slim. *g*
Reason for stopping: I'm on vacation. I'm only writing this while it's fun, and I got to the end of the scene and I'm not sure how the next one transitions in.

Stimulants: licorice spice tea and a berry fruit bar

Tyop du jour: "I bed your pardon." Again. One of the classics...
Darling du jour: It's a bit of a darling-free day.
Books in progress, but not at all quickly: Ladislas Farago, The Game of the Foxes; The Adams-Jefferson Letters;
Mean things: Sebastien is the vampire equivalent of a crazy cat lady. Or of The Doctor, in Time Lord terms. I suspect all the other vampires think him a bit dotty, with the pets and the engaging human society. But the monkeys are so entertaining.

Interesting tidbits: no research today....
Amber, saffron and bergamot with mandarin, nutmeg, Bulgar rose, musk and sandalwood.
Vial: Would you believe it smells exactly like a mix of Amber, saffron and bergamot with mandarin, nutmeg, Bulgar rose, musk and sandalwood? *g* Seriously. Heavy on the amber and saffron and sandalwood and oranges. Yum.
Wet: bergamot, sweet resin, and spice. The floral traces emerge. Maybe a tad too much rose.
Drydown: Saffron emerging, taking the sweet off the floral and turning it into a rich musky pollen scent. This one's got a trace of Hindu Wedding too, but not quite as seriously as Bastet.
Dry: Nice. This one mellows down good on my skin. Add saffron to the list of things that smell good on bears.
