    Happy Birthday Kumquat

    I can't imagine you are still hungry after Thanksgiving, but you still get a kumquat cake

    Testing the new release of Divine: L'être aimé. One version is for women and one for men but both have the Immortelle (everlasting flower) as main theme.
    At the moment the women's version is the winner.......but there is more testing needed.

    L'Être Aimé Homme

    Top notes: Bergamot, Lavender tincture, Ginger, Basil
    Heart notes: Celery, Cardamom, Everlasting flower
    Base notes: Amber, Cistus, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver

    L'Être Aimé Femme

    Top notes: Neroli, Bergamot, Nectarine
    Heart notes: Jasmine, Lily, Rose, Everlasting flower
    Base notes: Cistus, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Vanilla

    A great Friday to you all

    Happy birthday Kumquat! Though I bet you got a few toasts around the Thanksgiving dinner table yesterday. Obviously we didn't do Thanksgiving, but I am quite jealous of a public holiday that rotates around a humungous feast. We don't do enough feasting these days, by which I mean gathering with people we love and having a wonderful celebration of our lives and our happinesses. I was lucky enough to be brought up in a family that feasted at any possible occasion. Famously, we had an impromptu feast to celebrate the clearing of a treestump from our lane. It was so good it became an annual institution, known as Stump Day. One of the best inventions was the "pause for general drinking" between courses (my Pa used to teach Drama, in case you hadn't guessed) and the wonderful habit of toasting not only whatever reason we had found to celebrate that day, but the events to celebrate throughout the coming year. (We kids had to keep track of where we were in the calendar.) Happy days.

    For the third day in a row I am in Chanel No 22. Yes, it's THAT good.
    The best way I can describe its effect on me is still to say 'it smells like how I feel about snow'. I know that is totally illogical.

    After yesterday's medical adventures I now know that I have bendy tooth roots (annoying to the poor dentist who is trying to dig them out with a teeny tiny file), that a root canal really truly doesn't hurt as much as a filling (honest! I was astonished!), that I have polycycstic ovaries and that I need to lose a bunch of weight. I had guessed the last two. Heck, I weigh 97 kilos. I may joke about having the constitution of a horse, but I weigh the same as a pony. Something's gotta give. I think it's going to be my calorie intake.

    Somehow I think a few of our US Basenoters may be making the same vow this morning, though for different reasons.
    Love, hugs and AlkaSeltzer to those who need it

    Woke up before 4 AM today. 47 F outside and not a lot warmer inside as the heat was not on. The cats were not happy. For south Florida in November that is pretty cold. Geir Ness as SotD.

    Happy Birthday to Kumquat

    When I was growing up here I used to swipe kumquats from neighbor's trees and pop them into my mouth to eat, skin and all.

    Happy Birthday, Kumquat (nice name ).

    I'm wearing Vol de Nuit today.

    I was undecided, but walked through the department store on my way home from the butcher's and when I explained to the assistant at the Guerlain counter that I was trying to avoid further purchases for now, in the interests of having some money left to buy Christmas presents for other people, she suggested that I spray on something I liked to be going on with. Vol de Nuit is the next on my hit list (I have decant on its way to me, to help me resist the big bottle for a bit longer), so I went for that.

    Belated Thanksgiving to those over the pond (I just read all the menus yesterday, yummy!) and a very Happy Birthday to kumquat.

    , that cake makes me salivate...didn't have breakfast this morning
    And please, would you tell how much you smell everlasting in L'Etre aimé?? El Attarine didn't have enough, so I have high hopes for this one.

    It is snowing hard over here, folks! True Christmas weather, but a month too early.

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

    I never saw or ate a kumquat fruit. Oh no, don't worry!

    Went to bed in Memoire Liquide's Ambre Ancien and Perle Lustre- a conbo of almost piney resins coupled with a creamy musk / heliotropin.

    Today is work, work, work-
    And Arabian Musk Gazelle- a cheery, Taifi rose blended with 'real' musk- soft, tenacious.

    Feel better, those who aren't up to speed...

    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..."

    A very happy birthday to Kumquat!

    Enjoyed a busy Friday at work with the divine little cheapie, Revlon Fire & Ice (the mention that Taolady wore this just before I returned had me craving it!)

    I'm headed out on a VERY early flight tomorrow morning. For my 21st birthday (still not for awhile) my mum is taking me to Melbourne for a whirlwind shopping experience! Some specifics on my list are:
    - a nice, large-ish black handbag
    - semi-formal black jacket
    - nice black ballet flats (as mine are completely dead!!)

    I notice a trend with this list... hmmm, I wonder what it could be...

    Anyway, I will keep my eye out for any interesting perfumes on the trip. May not be able to join in on the celebrity scents tomorrow, as it may just be too cruel a thing to do to fellow plane passengers!
    Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

    I'm in Romeo Gigli Man, and I manage to broke the decant which still has around 3ml. left!
    This is the first time I broke a perfume bottle, luckily it's just a small decant.

    Good morning everybody Today I almost reached for my decant of Sa majeste la rose,but then decided that I needed some Feminite du bois instead. I can't believe how much snow we've had just the last week or so! I don't mind really,because the snow really lightens up an otherwise quite dark day. Happy birthday to Kumquat and hope the rest of you have a great friday!

    Happy Bday Kumquat! (I almost typed "Happy Kumquat day" which admittedly has a nice ring to it)

    Jil Sander Sun for me today, although there's nary a ray in sight.
    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.

    "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."

    ((( Stump Day...and ..... "pause for general drinking" )))

    I wonder what it feels like having something like Christmas just before Christmas, aka the Thanksgiving Day. Anyway, I hope you Americans all enjoyed yourselves, and are ready to start all over again next month.

    Today I'm wearing a small dose of the lovely La Perla.

    Not that I am wearing it, mind. So far just Divine L'Infante, as I didn't want to freak out the optician during my contact lens check.

    I'm wearing Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir again today. I fell in love with it yesterday. It took me a few wearings to really appreciate it.

    Wearing my "I survived another Thanksgiving" smile, I am wearing Attrape-Coeur. Today will be another family day, a bit harder to manage as I continue to feel under the weather. But the sheer beauty that is Attrape-Coeur makes my spirit soar. This much beauty in the world, and, unlike a Matisse, this is a beauty I can own!
