    What a wonderful way to start a birthday! Thank you, my dear friends

    Awesome pictures! I just finished breakfast but am already looking with hungry eyes at those dragon-cakes.
    G, dear, you now have answered Quarry's question of a year ago:
    "So...does a fire-breathing dragon blow out all the candles on its cake or make a wish and ignite them instead"

    Scent Sister to my Brotha today in glorious, happy Jicky
    What else would be fitting?

    Good luck to Ines. Don't be too nervous today my dear, you'll see that everything will go just fine. Ehmm, like a piece of cake

    Happiest of Birthdays to the Divine Miss R Designer of Devious Puzzles and Rebel Leader.
    May your day be full of friends, cake, and perfume. Lots of each.

    For me today I'm trying anopther of the 5-star scents. I got a decant of this during the TPC anniversary sale.

    S-Perfumes S-ex

    I am beginning to understand what makes a five-star in Turin and Sanchez's eyes. One big aspect is uniqueness. So far every one I've tried does not have a close counterpart for me to say it starts like this scent or dries down like this scent. This one starts off with the most salty marine note I've come across. Then a floral hint over a leather which deepens as the musk comes in. It also feels like there is the hint of a fruity note which keeps playing peek-a-boo with my nose. This is an extremely interesting scent and it seems to be pretty good on me.

    Joining the "Happy Birthday" chorus for Riannon. I love the dragon photos and especially the drawings.

    Dimples, so glad you like the PomNoir. It's like the poem about the little girl with the little curl on her forehead. When it is good, it's really really good, and when it's bad . . . . Anyhow, it's supposed to be one of the most long-lasting JMs.
