    How lovely to feel so welcomed! Thanks for setting this up Quarry. Here's the pm, edited to bring the weeks up to date! And today's scent is Chanel 5 parfum, layered on after a bath with Chanel 5 bath oil, for a little bit of extra longevity.

    Seasons greetings!

    Thank you for your lovelypm, I will certainly log in to the sotd reunion!

    I am doing well, thank you, and hope you are too. My baby is due in just under 4 weeks time, and I'm looking forward to meeting her so much! Scent has been a struggle for me the last couple of months or so, most of my favourites either disappear instantly or are amplified hugely. Stretch-mark cream doesn't seem to layer well with anything either! Anyway, it is a very small price to pay.

    Hope you had a splendid Christmas and wishing you every happiness for 2008!

    Happy New Year to one and all!!!

    I am currently a mash of ambers and animalics:

    Ambre Sultan and Fiore d'Ambre on each wrist, and Parfum d'Ida in the crook of both elbows!

    After shower in preparation for our New Year's Day open house (100+ people over the course of the day -- Chaya and Tinks, I believe you're within commuting distance... COME OVER!!!!) believe I will spend the day in the gorgeous Cuir d'Iris by Parfumerie Generale.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    The Oporto had its way with me and it was fireworks awoke me at about 5 minutes to midnight, so I did usher in the New Year rather than sleep through it!

    Hello everyone! A BN'er kindly alerted me to the New Years reunion thread, so having been away for a time I thought I'd take this opportunity to pop back in.

    Sotd is Creed Vanisia
    Notes: rose, jasmine, sandalwood, vanilla

    I hope to spend more time with you from now on, and I wish all of you and your loved ones a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

    Welcomewelcome to all the newie/lurkers - don't be strangers.

    Loving energy to all in need.... which is really all of us!
    As for this Tuesday - Molinard 1949 Collection - Habanita samples arrived!!!

    ...and in the interest of science am doing a sniff off - the 1949 (parfum and HUGELY "spensuff") and the EDT (like, forty clams for 3 oz.)

    I must first say I never met an Oriental that I didn't love - and Habanita is my very favoritest on most given days. (When I'm not cozying up to - say - Tabu. Or Toujours Moi.

    Right after application I preferred the EDT - brighter, "greener", more exuberant. The parfum just sat there. "Ha!" I thought - "I've just saved hundreds of dollars!"

    Wrongo!

    After about an hour the power of the 'fume begins to assert itself - there's sinuous muskiness and a deep throated sandalwood and exotic flower baseline around which swirls tobacco smoke. This is pre-Castro Havana - captured in the music of The Buena Vista Social Club....full of gaiety and dancing - bright happy faces, flashing smiles - flouncing skirts. Arriba arriba!!

    Start savin'!!

    (Zibs and Sestra - your samples will be in the mail tomorrow. And I think I promised someone else too - SPEAK UP. [I've GOT to get a P.A.])

    P.S. Sloan_8013 that is AWESOME!!

    It's so good to see lurkers post and lost ones returning! Hi to all of you.

    Chaya, my sympathy with your family and of course the people of the exploded building. What a horrible way to start the year.
    How's your head by the way, has the migraine left the building?
    Son is the same as yesterday, it didn't get worse.

    SotE (it's almost 17.00) will be Farnisiana, thanks to Chaya.

    LEONTION - welcome to the board.

    Scent twins with RIANNON today in the mysterious and beautiful DJEDI, a precious gift from a very generous basenoter a few months back! (thanks Dimples). Starting a New Year is worthy of this beauty, and I still have a few drops left for another special occasion!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
    All the best in 2008'

    Hope this is your best year ever!!

    It is. And I hardly wear it. I might make myself a note to wear that one tomorrow, it needs an airing.

    Today I moved my earrings out of a jewellery box and have dedicated it to my numerous decants....The earrings are waiting for an acrylic earring stand to arrive. I may photograph the decants in true basenotes style when I get round to it.

    Today I am wearing Parfum de Nicolai Eclipse.Gorgeous it is too.

    Happy and fragrant New Year to all.

    Happy New Year to all. I fear that I have ceased believing in peace, but please, just some kindness.
    Today, after a trip to the gym and a long, indulgent shower, I have settled down with a pot of tea wearing Idole by Lubin, layered over MKK. Oh, yes.
    Last night was fairly quiet: a glass of wine, movies and Chinese food with my husband, and then settling in to watch a Fred Astaire film festival on TV.

    Purplebird: I am totally unfamiliar with Ayala Moriel. Ayalitta sounds like something I would love. Just when I promised myself to slow down.

    I can't decide what to wear today, I've got ham hocks simmering, the collard and mustard greens go in later. They will taste so good, but stink up the house something awful. I don't know if I should choose something strong to try to overpower the stench or just wear a skin scent...

    What the heck, I chose Rochas Femme.
