Scented Thoughts and Experiences

  1. Such a long time .......

    Goodness, i can't believe how long it is since i was here on Basenotes. Well, for any length of time, that is. I am so busy these days.

    I came, ostensibly, to do an advanced fragrance search, and decided i'd attempt to update my wardrobe. Huh! I am daunted by the task, while i mentally browse the collection, now housed downstairs in the spare room, on industrial shelving. I was looking for a violet-laden, iris, opoponax patchouli type of fragrance, and was not coming up with much ...

  2. My fickle heart.....

    Ah! You frivolous flirtatious organ of mine. Tut tut! As i mentioned yesterday, Annick Goutal Heure Exquise parfum huiles precious, claimed my attention away from the Guerlain Apres Londee that I bid on, and won.

    My plan was to be financially remunerated enough to bid on the AG when it was relisted. It has failed to be relisted - all the better to increase my available funds, you would think. I unfortunately had a little bit of a browse, not ten minutes ago, and Lo and Behold! An ...
  3. It's been a while.....

    Since i rambled. So here i am, rambling. I have been very busy, but unfortunately not finding much in the way of vintage recently. There's no flea markets, estate sales or suchlike up here. So no finds of note. But last night, i could have kicked myself, hard.

    Husband and I had been looking, without much success, for a bottle of Apres Londee and not even vintage, just a modern bottle, it seems difficult to find. There were however, 2 full bottles on Ebay, so i asked the other half, ...

  4. Sample Heaven.....

    I have previously reported my failure at obtaining samples from Nordstrom. It was embarrassing how few i managed to procure from them, i almost could not bear to discuss it. However, I did state, that i was perceiving it as a mission, a gauntlet thrown down, and defiantly picked up by myself. A challenge, if you will, and i am nothing, if not tenacious, stubborn, and a general pain in the arse, when i really want something.

    And things have gradually improved, due to my educating myself ...
  5. Aromatic nights.....

    Yes, i will be suffering from distinctly odiferous evenings, until i wash my dressing gown - a by-product of decanting mishaps tonight. I find it interesting that when I choose to wear a perfume in the morning, running my finger gently along the pretty alluring bottles, gently humming a tune, and i select my companion for the day, I have a little lovey-dovey relationship with it, and we get to know each other, see how we "fit" and usually, i am wishing i could get more sillage and longevity, ...
