I can see it now, the sticky thread of 2009: "What fragrances will get you the most compliments and a pregnancy?"
Fantastic news, Aiona--congratulations! I'm with arwen-elf--you'll have to keep us up to date on how these things smell during the gestation
Hello, all--I have bumped this thread because I noticed that all of the samples we received from Profumo for this round have been added to the Basenotes Directory! Please add your reviews--some excellent observations were made, and I think they will be well-read in the directory
Another idea--please post your impressions to the single note threads I have started in the new Note Pad forum:
Will make a note of that, Asha.
And I didn't see Aiona's news before, so...
Congratulations, Aiona! How wonderful!
So, Profumo messaged me, maybe about a month ago now. I told him I cannot continue in the sampling group because. . . well, because I'm nauseous. So, I asked that he pick a replacement for me in the sampling group. (There are about 7 of us, if I remember rightly.)
And so, he picked purplebird.
Then, today Asha asked me how I was doing, and I realized. . . I still have those samples Profumo sent me, when he sent me the Rose des Bois. (To be honest, I was having some kind of nausea everytime I passed by the closet where I keep my smellies. So what did I do? I did what I think RHM suggested, which was to pack everything up in a box that I thought was making me sick, which actually turned out to be everything! And hopefully when my hormones return to normal, I'll go back to smelling like a non-regular person.)
But anyway, my point was, I will be mailing those samples to purplebird this week, or at least I shall try to! I have an odd feeling I may be a little incapacitated in the next few days. I'd hate to see these samples not get smelled!

Congratualtions, Aiona! I hope your nausea subsides very soon.
I am delighted to hear our sampling will continue!
