  1. Defending Jo Malone

    There are not too many kind reviews for Jo Malone fragrances here on BN, I see! (Been reading up tonight as I attempt to log my enormous pile of samples acquired from a lovely SA named Zenaida at the JM store in the Wynn, Las Vegas.) So, I just wanted to sing a little ditty in praise of this obviously very successful perfumery. Within my review of Nectarine Blossom and Honey:

  2. No. 5 And My Raging (Lack Of) Hormones



    Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is not a topic I would have discussed with my patients even were I not semi-retired from the practice of medicine. It is not a topic that was taught in mainstream Internal Medicine during my years of med school and residency. It is not a topic that would have even caught my interest, other than to banish it the list of topics we mainstream Internists might refer to as "voodoo" ...

Anyone else with any advice on this matter? I've researched it, and looks as though a fragrance CAN be copyrighted ever since the Supreme Court ruled circa 2006 in favor of Lancome who claimed that another co. copied their recipe for Tresor. Meanwhile, I pace the halls awaiting shipping confirmation ...

    At last. Oh thank you, thank you, you-know-who-you-are, Fellow Basenoter! IT has finally happened. Just as you said.

    At a mutually fun location, that is, one that provided enjoyment to both of us, my hotty hubby strolled up behind me as I was whiffing the Bond N. 9 sensation, The Scent of Peace. It was Atlantic City. I had lost track of the time. Standing in the Cos Bar at the Pier Shops at Caesar's, 8:56 crept up on me out of no where. My Baby was getting in a bit of Blackjack to ...

  5. Got my first, "Oh, Baby. That is too much..."

    Oh dear, my deepest fear. As if it isn't enough to have a best friend who is "allergic" to perfume--says it gives her migraines--I have heard dreaded words out of the mouth of my most beloved, my sweet hubby. I think we were on the border of a problem when I first brought home a sample of Creed's Jasmine Imperatrice Eugenie. That is, I could almost literally see him holding his tongue. I could tell it was "too much" for him. But he didn't actually VERBALIZE it. Then.
