Van Harte Gefeliciteerd en veel Geluk toegewenst, op deze speciale dag,
Parabéns e votos de uma vida feliz
I am wearing today
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Wow! How do you make that picture do THAT, Roberto?
Very impressed. I hope Eric is suitably impressed too.
Good morning everyone. In fact, where are you all this morning?
Tigs is maybe still in bed with her cold (get well soon, Tiger!) but surely our Far Eastern friends are up and at 'em? Coconut?
Well, I smell lovely today again. I'm wearing Donna Karan's Chaos from an original spiky bottle that Alicka snagged for me. What a star! (Alicka, as well as the perfume.) I like it a lot. Thank goodness they've reissued it.
Well, another busy housewife day for me, so I must go and get on with it.
Hope you all have a good day.

I'm trying a sample of The Different Company's Osmanthus. I meant to try Osmanthus Yunnan, but picked up the wrong sample .

Make it good, my dears, and stay WELL and SANE....
Happy Birthday from me, too, Eric ..what a fab cake !!!
Trying a sample of the fab Chanel Egoiste. Wow, love it, and need more
I'm wearing Musc Bleu from Il Profumo. It is lovely but the lonegevity is very poor. I absolutely covered myself in it four and half hours ago, but can barely smell it now. However, it may be still detectable to other noses, so I will resist applying something over it for a few hours yet.
Happy birthday, Eric! Wowsers, what a cake. I am epileptic and take Keppra to control it. Thank goodness it works!!!
My pleasure, Chaya. You smell delish.
L'Artisan Parfumeur Safran Troublant for me today. Have a lovely day, all!

Happy Birthday Eric.
"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
Forgot to apply perfume this morning and so rummaged around my handbag to find an atomiser of Versace Woman, so that was my SotD. Later tested Madame X (Ava Luxe) and now in L de Lolita Lempicka.
Happy birthday Eric!

OOO my EYES! Good morning everybody.Today is the last day before we(my studygroup)have to hand in the assignment in Sociology.I'm usually very much in the last minute for these things,but for once I feel like everything is under control Sotd is Trouble.Weird how my impression of the scent changes if i haven't worn it in a while.Today I can defenitely detect the cedar and peach quite well. Happy birthday to all the birthday kids!Have FUN!!!!
Gefeliciteerd & Happy Birthdays!
Layered Tourmalin Noir with Jour de Fête today. Interesting combination.
It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
A big thanks to all!! Coming on this side of the board is always like a warm bath.
Roberto, no offence, but that pic is horrible, LOL!! thanks anyway!
Tom Ford extreme for me today.

Happy Birthday Eric!
Happy Birthday Jellybean1973!
Happy Birthday KMF!
I hope you each enjoy your special day.
I'm wearing l'Eau d'Hadrien today. I enjoy it in all seasons, esp. when I'm not in the mood for potent perfumey fragrances. I need to finish this bottle soon, though, I think it's about to turn.
Have a good day everybody!
Van harte gefeliciteerd en een verjaardagsknuffel to Eric and a Happy Birthday to silverbullet, jellybean1973 and KMF

M. Micallef Avant Garde
Bergamot, grapefruit, cocoa bean, tobacco, incense, Russian leather, tonka bean, grey amber
I love the flashing screaming cake.
Today I'm in Habanita, the frag that started my vetiver exploration. So far I haven't found anything with vetiver that I like nearly as much as Habanita (hope that's not heresy).
WISHLIST: Tokyo Milk Honey & the Moon, Brooklyn Bunny Lettuce

Smelling fierce in a combo of Sel de Vetiver and Black Vetyver Cafe.
Happy Birthday, kiddies. Now, let's eat!
So many birthdays today! This deserves two cakes. First, for Eric, KMF, and jellybean1973, a top hat cake for you top notch guys!
And a special happy birthday cake just for Silverbullet. I know you'll make it a good one, Jack!
I'm taking a cue from all the ladies who wore amber yesterday and am hoping for a relaxing day in SL's Ambre Sultan.
Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.
-- Absolutely Fabulous
Damn, Roberto -- that flashing birthday gif almost gave me seizures!
My SOTD: Noir Epices

Happy birthday to Silverbullet, Eric, Jellybean 1973 and KMF! What a fruitful day this is, bearing lots of scentophiles through the years!
Today I'm in Love's True Bluish Light. I bought it blind based on the raves posted here on Basenotes, and I have not been disappointed!
Check out our art car!
Arabie by Serge Lutens
The very last drops of my decant - all gone.
Congrat's to ALL of the birthday boys!
I'm in Kenzo Flower Oriental. I hope this isn't heresy, but I think this is one flanker that is much better than the original - Flower is nice, but definitely not FBW for me, but I'm loving the Oriental version.
Gourmandises for me today.
Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé, as suggested by Taolady. :wave: Love this one, in all its rum-raisiny goodness.
Happy birthday to the birthday boys! (I'm still seeing spots from that cake of yours, Roberto.)
Moondeva, welcome back!

Happy Birthday, gents.
Amouage Gold for me today. Stay warm and dry, everyone.
SL Bois de Sepia for me today. Have a nice day and happy birthday wishes to all our newborns!
Happy Birthdays all around....
Cool late autumn day here – wearing a lavender cashmere v neck and my favorite pale grey jcrew trousers, it seems like divine intervention now that I’m sampling D'Hiver, courtesy of an incredibly generous Lush Soup.
It’s not what I thought it would be. It’s very spare and I mean that in the best sense of the word. I don’t smell a whole lot going on but then again, I feel like I am missing anything either. I know understand the all the love this fragrance gets.
Looking for small decants
* Frederic Malle En Passant, Parfum de Thérèse * Serge Lutens Bois Oriental, Borneo1834, Douce Amère, Gris Clair, Rousse, Santal de Mysore
Saffron James 'Ume. If the Dark Lady of the Sonnets went to Hawaii, she would smell like this fragrance.
Happy Birthday Silverbullet! Happy Birthday Eric! Happy Birthday Jellybean1973! Happy Birthday KMF!

Happy, happy birthday(s) silverbullet, eric, jellybean1973 & KMF!
Today I'm back to incense... debated being a lemming to Scentson SMM and going with Jubilation XXV, but then realized I hadn't given L'Occitane Eau de Beaux a full wearing in awhile. Yummy and sweet, very warming on this cold bright day.
Eau de Beaux notes: Cypress and incense.
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...
Happy Birthday to silverbullet, eric, jellybean1973 and KMF! And to my sweet Mom too! She's getting a care-package of some spray samples I've put together and a full bottle of Tocade (a pretty safe bet) tonight to start her off well this year. If she likes the samples who knows what else she'll end up with; we'll see if she's a Coco, Mitsouko, Shalimar, or Gucci Rush type (she complimented me on Rush one day). I may add more, but I don't want to overwhelm her. She doesn't wear perfume much due to allergies, so I'm starting slow. She used to wear Tabu (um, a LOT of Tabu), so who knows? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Coco. May it be a good year for all!
This morning I'm wearing Jasmin Noir. Initially green, and then synthetic jasmine sambac and licorice. It's a bit department-store-ish but I think I like it just the same.
Happy Birthday wishes to all celebrating today!
I am wearing Daisy by Marc Jacobs today. Just got it and I have to say that it's a safe scent for days where you want to feel fresh and light but be inoffensive. I don't perceive it as such a young scent as some other reviewers have indicated. The fruity opening notes come on stronger and then it mellows out till you can finally smell a very subtle vanilla. I can see me wearing this for early morning meetings and such.
Happy Birthday to the Gang of Four; Eric, silverbullet, KMF and jellybean1973.
I knew this was going to be a crazy day from the gatgo and it hasn't disappointed.
I also knew I would need more incense so I'm in:
Back to the madness.
More writing on fragrance by me to be found at http://www.cafleurebon.com/
Happy Birthday, everyone. Must be a good day to be born. ; )
My nose is on the mend, thankfully, and I am wearing Serge Lutens Clair de Musc. I know a lot of people say that it's an overpriced musk, but I think it has an ethereal quality to it.
Clair de Musc: The water that pixies have bathed in.
Its JS Fancy for me today. I am amazed by how much I like this one.
Ysatis today. Very nice with this weather.
L'amour fait songer, vivre et croire. Il a, pour réchauffer le coeur, un rayon de plus que la gloire; et ce rayon, c'est le bonheur. (Victor HUGO)
Happy Birthday to Eric, SilverBullet, Jellybean1973 and KMF!!
I'm wearing Creed Original Vetiver today.
Happy birthday to all that are celebrating!
Parfum Sacre and then I tested Hypnotic Poison elixir and Kenzo Flower le parfum.
Happy B.D. to all! It's rainy here today so it feels like a good day for Bois des Iles.
I'm in incense and vanilla, with a quick splash of lemon - Shalimar EDP layered with Shalimar lotion. Skin is dry due to excessive central heating.
Happy Birthday to all on their special day.
Need special shades for that cake for Eric!
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
The magnificent fragrance that is Annick Goutal's Sables, for this chilly and delightful evening.
Looking for a sample of Gucci Envy Me.
Calling Leesee and other Amouage lovers:
After turning my nose up at Gold a few days ago, I'm trying Gold pour femme again tonight, plus Dia pour femme on the other hand. I had samples sprayed on cards at the store today, and the cards bear little resemblance to what is floating from my skin.
Gold on the card is very lovely - a lively floral without being heavy, and I get a zing of fruit, like melon.
Gold on my hand is dirtier and heavier, with a cumin note that I don't like
Dia on card pleasant, a little powdery, rather bland.
Dia on my hand is riddled with incense; not bad, and if I wanted incense I wouldn't turn it down
My own Amouage samples (or miniatures) are approximately 2 years + old, and rarely out of their handsome padded box. The ones I tried in the store looked repackaged in brighter boxes, though the miniature bottles looked much the same.
But they smell like different 'fumes.
