    Happy birthdays Ultranova and Prokroustis

    Whoa I missed so much in the past few days. I wanted to say:
    Happy belated birthdays Anamari and Darkdreams.
    Congrats on taking the pledge Twolf!!! Sounds like a sweet afterparty!
    Sakecat, I loved the story about Spike the cat! I want my own!
    Lushsoup, your post yesterday made me giggle. I don't tend to get compliments from strangers either so when you do get one it is rather exciting.
    Chaya, love the description of the lippy. Been wanting to find my own shade of red, maybe I'm not brave enough for whore-red though!

    Phew, feeling a bit behind here! On the upside, I completed my second last exam today. This time tomorrow it'll be over Wore Gucci Envy, which got me compliments from my mother, sister and bf.

    Happy Birthday all those of you celebrating today.
    I chose Fragonard's Fleur d'Oranger again today.
    It's such a carefree, "joie de vivre"-type scent.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    What fine smellers you all are!
    Happiest birthdays, dear friends !
    Twolfie- how's the hangover???

    OK.
    In my efforts to hypnotize myself into sleep-
    I awoke with PATCH hangover...
    [NOT that I mind, you know- but if it had been DRUGS....!]

    Today ?
    I'm thinking Shalimar, in body cream and extrait...Yup.

    I'm trying to get it together:

    Letters, packages, the gym, returning the Holter monitor they put on DH yesterday [ oh, YEAH- ? open heart surgery looming in his future ?
    Where did THAT one come from ???]
    Support service for a co-worker whose 19 yo daughter was gunned down in Dorchester-

    So, if I'm slow in pm responses- bear with me.
    I must be the Hit Parade-
    'Cos the hits just keep on comin', lol [ ruefully].

    To paraphrase Bessie Smith :
    " Do your sweet, sweet Mama love you ?
    Yes, indeed she do..."
    MWAH.

    Chaya, in AA we say "God gives the heavy loads to the big boys" (to which my dearest H...who'd had his share...would reply "whooopee" accompanied by a feeble wave of the forefinger) Looks like you're one of the big boys. Healing energy flowing to Beantown....and thanx for your new avatar. I for one love to see your beautiful face.

    Happy Birthday all y'all...
    Many thanks to LedByMyNose who provided today's scent...a sample of Tocca's Cleopatra.

    Here are the notes: Sparkling Grapefruit, Lush Greens, Cassis Bud, White Jasmine, Peach Nectar, Tuberose, Patchouli, Golden Amber, Vanilla Musk

    I've loved all the Tocca's I've tried...besides this one, Touch, Florence and Stella. This one too - on me the greens stand out, nicely underpinned with the jasmine, and the light ambery vanilla is a sweet lingerer (is that a word?) Uplifting for a chilly day.

    Lian slow and easy until you feel better is a good prescription.
    Chaya, if you were a boxer you'd look like Rocky with the number of recent hits. Just like Rocky I know you're going to make it to the end no matter what. Plus you'll smell better than Rocky

    Trying something new instead of something discontinued today:

    Serge Lutens Serge Noir

    This starts off really sweet on me before the incense and spice in the heart come to the fore front. Somewhere on the road to the base there is an accord that comes off very generic a woody mix that smells like so many others. For a scent that starts so imaginitively to end in such a pedestrian manner makes this a disappointment on me.

    Lush Soup, your story yesterday had me lol this morning. I’ve been enjoying my sample of Jasmin Noir, too, and yes – you really do smell good! No need for concern.

    I'm almost 100% again today. Felt like hell yesterday, but lots of sleep, tylenol, and Sinu-cleanse put me together again. Sleep is the real miracle cure. My fragrance today is Dior's Midnight Poison, from a sample. I'm really enjoying this one.

    Have good day, everybody!

    Thank you for your kind words and continuous support! Seems like I have been bathed in red, white and blue these days, they even had fireworks in my honor at work yesterday (made of foil and attached to the ceiling, of course ).

    Chaya, my heart goes out for you. Right, Our Father would not send us stuff that we can't deal with, but don't we wish that He did not trust us as much at times?

    SotD is Armani Mania. A pre-Basenotes purchase for me and one I am beginning to appreciate more and more.

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."

    Be well, all my sweets. The sun will shine again. Until then, we will light the way for ourselves with fireworks and candles and warm each other with hugs.
    Make your wishes, birthday kids!

    I've loaded Uncle Sam with lots of outgoing smellies. A few of you will be getting samples of the "E" fragrance by Sophia Grojsman because I was meaning to send you something else anyway. Anyone who'd like to sample this scent, just send me a PM.

    Started to post this morning, but got bounced off the home computer.

    Happy birthday(s)!!!

    Am fighting a cold that has felled all three of my kids, and a bit worried about it because I have two singing performances this weekend. Boosting my immune system and my mood by mentally picturing Chaya jogging up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum, with a beautiful shawl tossed just-so over her muscleman t-shirt and shorts. The lipstick is perfect. Her men and Basenotes family are waiting at the top of the steps, with champagne and some rare Guerlain extrait...

    For me today, Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory, a delicious, slightly metallic incense on a light floral and patchouli backdrop.
    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

    My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
