    Default Happy New Year! SOTD January 1, 2008

    Incense Rose by Ava-Luxe, I like the oude in this one and I mixed it with just a dab of AL Oude oil.

    I had a quiet evening with daughter number one, we went to a film, had dinner, relaxed. She is off again tomorrow, and I may not see her till the spring, unless I get myself to Chicago.
    DH and daughter number two are due back from Argentina in the late morning, then she is back to work on Wednesday, just staying long enough to pick up her car and her pup.

    May this year bring peace in the world and peace within ourselves (and lots of great smelling stuff)

    Still awake cleaning up from new years party ( I can't stand to wake up to a dirty kitchen). DH and daughter are upstairs engaged in a competitive Wii baseball tournament! I still smell fabulous in my Fifi Chachnil

    I so hear you, girl.

    No party to clean up after here tonight. Just DH2B and me. Oysters Rockefeller, Chateaubriand, and Trouble.

    Happy New Year's day to all!

    I managed to watch the ball drop last night with the help of strong Spanish coffee to keep me awake, saw spectacular tv coverage of celebrations/fireworks round the world starting with Sydney, and fell asleep about 5 minutes after the ball dropped - not bothering to try to watch entertainers I am completely unfamiliar with.

    Gearing up to be hit by more snow here later in the day - and wanted a scent to transport me away from winter's cold.

    SotD Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

    Here's hoping Jean Claude Ellena will continue to bring us lovely gifts like this in the year ahead.

    Is it not remarkable how the human mind works? The clock strikes twelve, 2007 is history and most of us will have the feeling that we get a new chance. To make a new start with a clean slate.
    The power of faith and trust.

    For a perfume addict the birth of a new year is a true gift from heaven
    Dutch custom: you will be kissed three times!! Now, be honest, who would not grab the opportunity to unashamedly nuzzle as many fragrant necks as possible, eh?
    ::Oh, this one smells gooood! Hmm hmm, that one is even better......., now, what are you wearing? Ah, let me write that down......::
    I am afraid I looked like a fragrance vampire.

    First scent of this year Djedi, my most loved Guerlain at the moment.

    May 2008 be a year filled with love and joy for all of you.

    Mouchoir de Monsieur for me , from my newly, fresh purchased bottle.

    I'm imediateley transported to the year 1900. Weird scent, more oriental than citrus to me. I'm getting a strong civet note out of this.( at least I think it is)

    WHAT a wonderful avatar...
    I want to be that dog, or Musse's rat.

    We three [ DH, J, and I] spent a bittersweet eve feeling utterly grateful, and more than a bit worried...
    At 7:30 pm, 2 blocks away, a 7 alarm fire began, and our friends had to vacate their house, next door, b/o the very real danger of implosion [ an old brick building, 1877, one person dead, still burning...]

    Poor J, only 17, goes to high school w/ one of the 3 children next door to it.
    He cried.

    Wore Amber Noir to bed [ Sonoma], still smell it now.
    Just fed the guinea pigs, and will probably wear Kretek today.

    Please pray for those left homeless !
    May this year be a better one....

    Lievje- hope other son is improving- mwah !

    My eldest comes home from Middle East tomorrow.
    I want him safe.

    Chaya happy to hear your eldest is winging his way home to mama's fragrant arms - what a great gift for the New Year. Those left homeless by the fire are in my prayers as is the person who lost life - and your son is exhibiting admirable empathy - which with a mom like you is understandable.

    The avatar is my "snow dog" Taboo We have no idea what breed/mix she is - obviously part something from cold climes, because her idea of heaven is to go to sleep on a mountain of snow or ice. My older dog has arthritis and likes to stay inside near the heat vents.

    Hugs to you!

    A special greeting to those making a point to reunion here today. Hebe, I hope you'll tell everyone what you told me in your PM. So glad to hear your pregnancy is progressing okay.
    And a humongous hello to those leaving the shadows of lurkdom. Thank you for adding your voice and fragrance to the launch of Basenotes 2008.

    I'm wearing Bois de Violette--very different for me. Still struggling to wrap my nostrils around violet notes, but feel like I'm making progress.

    Undecided and out-of-sorts this morning, but I didn't want to wear any of my go-to comfort perfumes...seemed a bad starting note. So, after rooting around through my samples, I'm starting the day in Nicholas Nicolai Number One. Happy New Year, everyone!

    help with the clearing up, having stayed over in my newly
    vacated empty nest!!
    One son was in London (where the firework display was fab)

    I wore CRISTOBAL and am wearing it today as well.
