    Tao, VM, lots of birthday kisses for you.
    KiatBKK, I don't know you, but judging from your birthdate, you must be spectacular.

    Wishing Taolady (wow!), VMIHateCivet, and KiatBkk the best birthday ever. No wonder I love it here, hangin' with all these Geminis!

    Enjoy this bouquet of the TLady's faves:



    My SotD is Lys Mediterranee. It's just beautiful, but definitely a "Brylcreem fragrance"; in other words, "a little dab'l do ya"!

    P.S. Sunnyfunny, you smell wonderful!

    Aren't they? Since joining Basenotes, I can't see a peony without thinking of Taolady, who obviously loves that note in perfumes!

    I can't think of Joy without thinking of TaoLady...

    SotD turned out to be the fluffy white vanilla musk known as Helmut Lang (EDP).

    Happy Birthday, Taolady! Happy Birthday VM I hate civet & KiatBkk !

    Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    SOTD so far is Kingsbury Fragrances Twilight Rose soap. I planned to add the body cream but everyone was talking about the Chanel Exclusifs over at POL & I started to crave Beige. (Haven't put it on yet but I'm thinking about it.) The hawthorne & honey are so yummy!

    Oops, I missed some birthdays this week! Belated Happy Birthday to Quarry, Black Cat, and Whispering Leaves. And Happy Birthday today to Taolady, VM I hate civit, and KiatBkk!

    It seems to me there must be something for everyone somewhere on this cake!


    I'm wearing Bond No. 9 Central Park (a sample from dearest Tao, who knows what I like!).

    By the way, I think Dimi is wearing Washington Tremlett Black Tie.

    Have a fragrantly wonderful day, everyone!

    Happy birthday to the three celebrants! Hope everyone is having a great day!

    Today I am wearing Diptyque's Eau de Lierre, from a sample. It's nice! Very green and fresh. But why do all of these greens seem so clean on me? Nanadebary, Gucci Envy, this one too, all seem sort of freshly shampooed to me. Anyone know of any deep, dark, mysterious, slightly dirty greens? Maybe I'll start a thread, or search around a bit because I'm sure somebody has probably asked that question before...

    I am always a bit of a hotchpotch scentwise, and today is no different. Testing Ulrich Lang Anvers 2 (scrummy!) and L'Artisan Piment Brulant, and wearing Armani She White (courtesy of Lovethescents) and a timorous snifter of Cabochard (thanks, Soirdelune!). It has historic significance as my birth year scent and enough attitude for the both of us. : - )

    Thanks to everyone for the dazzling array of cakes and fruit. Let's not forget we can make healthy food choices, though I will just have a bit of cake first.....

    OH! What wonderful birthdays! (See, eight-oh and five-oh!) Congratulations, Tao, VM I Hate Civet and KiatBKK.I'm so glad I made it back in time.

    Yup, I'm home!
    Amusingly, the worst problem I have is... wind. I's pretty normal for the situation, apparently, but it's pretty funny to have a big op and no real pain or problems apart from rolling around trying to get the bubbles out of your innards!

    Small got her birthday present today: her first bike. She loves it and demanded I take a photo of her riding it, with her adored sidekick and BFF Noel sitting in the basket on the front. Sooooo sweet!

    My SOTD so far has been Lolita Lempicka, but in honour of my dear friend Tao, who has been an amazing shoulder to cry on in times of pants-wetting scaredness, I will be wearing Habanita, which always makes me think of her.

    Wordie, it's so great to see you back and healing! And with your usual charming sense of humor. LOL at the side effect. Well, it certainly could be worse. Just use extra fragrance!

    Happy, happy birthday to Taolady and VM I Hate Civet! Enjoy your big birthdays! I rarely meet people that have a birthday near mine, so it's wonderful to see all the late-May Geminis on this board. Just goes to show we have excellent taste.

    Looks more like a sloth than the dreaded "C" word, non?

    SotD: Un Jardin en Mediterranée, in honor of Taolady (fig) and VM (no civet).

    Have a great day, all.

    So nice to see you posting Wordbird.

    I think I'm going to wear some vintage Joy parfum by Jean Patou tonight, since it always makes me think of Taolady.
