    Latrelle: "What?"
    Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    Hi, this is my first post at basenotes, and I can't resist a word game like this, so I figured I would start here.

    My perfect scent in two words:

    Sexy librarian.

    Something woody with the delicious smell of old books and shafts of sunlight on leather bindings and a surprise sexy, musky skin-smell afterburn.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    UPDATE: Oh, crap, I just realized I got the assignment wrong. I was trying to name an idealized nonexistent scent and you guys are describing things that you already love. My bad. Way to be a stupid n00b.

    Do prepositions count in this game? I have a real fondness for Gucci "Nobile", which I would describe as:

    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
