    Happy New Year to all my lovely basenotes friends! Thank you Quarry, for this delightful reunion!
    I love my neighbors! They're nuts for fireworks like me, and we hooted and hollered across the pond and down the street at each other's offerings. Sigh, July 4th is so faaaaarrrr away!

    I'm trying Aroma M's O-Cha today. The whole line is supposed to have a geisha/incense sensibility, and this one from '95 has green tea, bergamot, sweet orange (incense is the unlisted, but understood, component.) I have ten more of this line to go.

    O-cha is lovely, the opening sweet orange rush is great, and it settles to a soft, balanced composition. I want it on a man's neck to snuzzle! It's not masculine, but I lob unisex scents over to the men. I've been sitting on this sample pack for months, unable to disturb the perfect presentation-- kimono wrapped vials.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    A blessed, peaceful New Year's wish for everyone; the homeless are in my prayers.

    Went to a neighbor's party then to my Mom's late last night. Seattle Space Needle fireworks were a total flop, but in a highly amusing way.

    Woke up a little late, but made it to a 5K run this morning - chose not to dip into Lake Washington as I didn't want to begin the new year with an arrythmia.

    Perusing my Mom's perfume shelf, I found a mini of Burberry Weekend and that's what I'm wearing today!

    Hi to all the new folks.

    Laurence Dumont Vanille Violette, still left over from last night. Finished cleaning up after last night's dinner party with old friends today. I guess I didn't overindulge because no hangover today, and one bottle of champagne and one bottle of bordeaux left over!

    Because of my cold and severely diminished ability to smell anything, I decided to wear Eau d'Hadrien since I know my mother likes this one.

    Just now did one spritz of Poison on arm to try and sniff. I can smell it a little, and what I do smell, I like

    Happy New Year to all!

    A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!

    I'm going into the new year 74 lbs. lighter than the last one, hoping to put the new found energy into good use on some long overdue changes in my life. Love and thanks to all you friends in the perfume community for keeping me going over the last four years.

    SOTD: P.d'Empire Cuir Ottoman. Thought it was acrid at first...whiffs of petroleum, but it smells so good on a perfumista friend, I want to give it another try. Great sillage & longevity from just a few drops.

    The last woman with whom I shared MR thought it smelled better on me than her. MR is one of those scents that tends to work very well with male body chemistry.

    Tao and PB7, glad to know you enjoyed the artwork in my earlier post. I was looking for something special with which to start the year.

    Almost SOTE scent twins. Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum is a bedtime favorite. I LOVE this scent on a woman and I'm sure you smell deliciously divine.

    Tonight, I was putting together a sample pack and chose a favorite from last year:

    Happy New Year to all - old, new, lurkers and returners alike - may 2008 bring you what you wish for.
    Having heard Quarry's bright idea to get everyone posting their SOTD for January 1st I couldn't miss it, so I hope no-one minds me adding mine a day late.
    I started the year in Jicky; it's something I've discovered via Basenotes and I've been surprised to find it's my absolute go-to scent - the one that I know will take me anywhere to do anything and that smells good from first spray to last lingering whiff. I've learned so much through this website and the most important thing I know is that I've only just scratched the surface of the subject. I'm looking forward so much to learning more in 2008 and I'm very glad to have such good guides and collaborators to learn from and with.
    All good things to you all.
