    I'm here to deliver an honorary "huggy puppy" -- that's what our dog whines for when my daughter gets home. Our dog gets up on the ottoman, stands on her hind legs, and enjoys a warm embrace as made evident by her wagging tail. Huggy puppy is more fun than a regular hug.

    Awww, Kiba gives little love bites! So sweet. That's one thing my Sal Pal doesn't do. She has one embarrassing but endearing thing she does when she's completely happy. She's not much of a lap cat, but she is very playful. No kids here, but yes, I've heard things have a tendency to change once they enter the picture! Yours are adorable, btw.

    I don't pay much attention to notes, either, especially since they have names like "essence of moonlight" or "sensual note." Good for you on learning to work the notes out for yourself, anyway! I've been on BN for a couple years (loved fume all my life, though ) and it's still hard for me to get. It is interesting, though, how you just sort of suddenly are able to discern notes where you couldn't before. You really do train your nose (whether you want to or not )! Anyhoo, I'm canning hot pepper jelly for Christmas presents, so I'd best check the canner before anything explodes..

    Hahaha yeah i can only avoid the infamous dry heat for only a month Im going back der early Jan.

    Im here just to visit my grandparents, friends, and a very special lady Some of the famous "Basenotes Winter Frags" such as Black Aoud, Amouage Gold works wonderfully here, despite being strong.

    Im more like a niche snob, so i prefer niche rather than designer. Eau savage is out of the question since its a bit dated (as in lemony 80s kind of thing). For women i do like designer frags more than niche though.

    What are your favourite frags?

    Oh, Kal, I love being laughed at … er, found to be humorous.
  5. Kal, thanks so much for the friendship! It's great to know another who is mad about the old chypres!

    Wishing you and yours the best holiday season....

    I've read that Maine Coons & Ragdolls are similar in personality, too.. Maybe we just have a mean one! lol. The exposed belly is always a passive-aggressive initiation of war in my house. Kiba sounds like a great pet for your kids! Sal has been an only child for most of her 5 1/2 years, so she's not overly social or friendly to anyone but us. My mom calls her a devil cat.

    What a good husband, being your guinea pig for new fumes! Any new thoughts on Alien? My DH is actually really good about almost all my fumes. There are quite a few he likes, a few he loves (like Alien! ), and he's actually coming around on a couple he previously couldn't stand. His nose is becoming trained through no fault of his own, heheh! He actually reintroduced me to fume before we got engaged.

    Re. the reviewers with 3000+, their language usually doesn't speak to me, so I don't pay much attention to them. The descriptions on sotd are sufficient to pique my interests. But I understand some folks review off the tester strip only??!?

    Hey Kal!

    I can't see your wardrobe. You should activate your icon! Thank you for your compliment on my drobe. I'm becoming more and more pleased with it. I'm trying to minimize it to fumes I truly love (life is too short to wear fumes you don't truly love.) Right now it is those, a couple gifts from my husband (we have somewhat different tastes, he likes wispy aquatics) and a couple sentimental vintage Avons I wore as a pre-teen. There are a couple I don't wear much but are just fun to have. Anyways, yes, that's exactly why I wear my sotds multiple days in a row. It gives me a sense of really inhabiting, and of owning, the scent, too.
    I love fluffy friends!

Me and Carnal Flower - Part One:

by Kal on 5th January 2011 at 05:41 AM
I have a great idea! Instead of blurbing about a newly acquired fragrance in Word and then trying to transfer 3 months worth of observations into a blog, I'll do it all as blogs! Bit by bit! That way I won't have the odious task of censoring my blogs or trying to figure out where to splice them. My Jungle L'Elephant and L'Heure Bleue 'reviews' are two blogs long - each - so I am yet to post them. I hate editing - I need an editor!! D:

Anyway, onto Carnal Flower from Frederic Malle.

Hullo Thar ...

To whom it may concern:

This is me ...

I have tried posting my reviews on Basenotes only to have them disappear into the 'system' too many times so I've decided to change my tac and post blogs instead.
I was lurking for about a year before joining last February and only joined because I had a question to ask but I still haven't asked it - and it still

I've been out of the loop in all areas of life since my kids were born in 2006.

After a blog posted by Atlanta1 I discovered that L'Oreal had taken over YSL.
Having only recently learned that L'Oreal still tested on animals I was horrified to think that they would be doing the same with YSL perfumes and was glad that I no longer have any.

On further investigation I was even more horrified to find out that they also took over The Body Shop in 2006! Shocked! Appalled!
