    Dear All,

    Thank you very much for your blessings and kind words.
    I celebrated my birthday with my friends in Chiang Mai in Thailand. I went to see the long neck hill tribes and enjoyed a few relaxing days away from civilzation

    Thanks to those who wore my favourite scents on my birthdaY!

    I brought a few samples from the Ava Luxe line (Rasa, Film Noir, Creme Brulee), Michael Kors and Kenzo Summer for this trip. I didn't make much purchase on my trip except for a bottle of cold pressed coconut oil and a floral top.

    I am back to work and I am now wearing Carolina Herrera by Carolina Herrera Eau De Parfum. This is a lovely jasmine and I seriously think it is under-rated.
    Currently wearing: Gardez-Moi by Jovoy

    So I was greeted again this morning with the familiar BN message "Server is too busy" Frankly speaking, this is getting ridiculous.

    Rant over, and :wave: to Coco and I'm glad you had a lovely birthday.

    Ralph Hot for me. This one is fun and really lasts for me. I probably won't buy it again though.

    Today I tested one of my own perfume oils. It actually was a bit of an accident and I only made enough for one wearing. I didn't record exactly what was in it (being an accident) although I remember it was based around vanilla/benzoin and this odd cocoa oil that I have with a bit of patchouli. It smelled ok and lasted about 9 hours - bf liked it so it must have been at least vaguely decent . But his SotD was a much more sophisticated vanilla - Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

    Bottle of Fleurs de Bulgarie arrived in the mail today so that will be my SotE

    I have to practice patience here...think Grant is trying to get our 'drobes organized then there was that piece in the Style Section of the NYTimes yesterday (featuring the fabulous Chaya and the equally fabulous BaseNotes!!) ... I'm sure that caused MOLTO hits on the site. For better and worse....Nothing succeeds like success.

    Supposed to be HOTHOTHOT maybe Tabaróme Millésime....tobacco, ginger...bergamot. Rully swell!!

    Yes, I too fell victim to the "server too busy" thing yesterday -- wildly frustrating for us regulars, but I'm REALLY looking forward to having our wardrobes back, so I'm trying to practice patience.

    I have been having an intense craving for cardamom lately, and finally did something about it -- bought a cardamom single note perfume from Serena. It's perfect, especially for layering.

    Today I'm wearing Ava Luxe Cardamom layered with Annick Goutal Chevrefeuille. I'm finding it incredibly satisfying... the nosmic (is that a word? Figure it must be, based on "anosmic"! ) equivalent of scratching an itch!
    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

    I tried posting this yesterday but kept getting the dreaded server busy message.

    So, today, I am wearing it again because I liked it so much: Bond No. 9 Chinatown from a sample I received last Saturday.

    The opening notes I don't care for that much but it immediately moves on to a very lovely floral dominated by Gardenia and tuberose. Normally I find gardenia perfume oppressive but this one worked for me. I much prefer cutting the gardenia flowers from my backyard bush and putting them in water around the house but this one was great. About an hour later, I could smell sandalwood/cedarwood and somehting that smelled to me like church incense. I had my dh sniff but he said I was crazy about the incense. Coudl this be Guaiac wood which is listed as a base note? In any case this fragrance works wonderfully for me with very lasting sillage. It will go in my wish list.

    Yes, the wardrobes are "phoenixing," but wonky. For instance, blending the "to test" frags with the "collection" ones:

    I am wearing Coney Island from a sample sent by Bleu. I really like it- but every now and then I get a sniff of something off. Not sure what it is...
