    Therese, I hope you feel better very soon!

    I'm rather excited about my SotD, Royal Palm by Stephanie de Saint-Aignan.



    This fragrance was created by Saint-Aignan to be the signature fragrance for the famous Royal Palm hotel in Mauritius. It is really lovely on me, from the slightly sweet grapefruit at the beginning to the gentle spice & woods drydown. I think it's perfect for summer and early fall. I haven't had it on long enough to report on longevity, but it is on the light side for sure. Here are the notes (from Luckyscent): Grapefruit, jasmine, iris, cardamom, cinnamon, pink pepper, black pepper, clove, vetiver, cedar wood, leather and incense.

    Happy Jewish New Year!

    I am wearing Bal a Versailles, as it was the bottle more close to me, while I was sitting with ice on my ankle...( I managed to strain it, getting out of my car, today. )

    Bal a Versailles was my favourite perfume once, but I am not enjoying it lately.

    My SOTD is Chanel No 5 eau Premiere, but I also have a test spot of FM Musc Ravageur on my wrist. It's coming off as hardcore manly on me, may try it out on the hubs.

    I felt like something new today, so I transferred my Guerlain L'Instant samp (thanks, Misscasey! )from vial to atomizer and decanted a third of it all over my hand. It reminds me a bit of Chanel Allure Sensuelle right off.



    Happy New Year and a great day to all! Enjoy the fresh start.

    Happy Monday dear BNers! Hope you have a great start to the week...

    Wordie - glad to hear that Small is adjusting to kindergarten. My little girl now RUNS to her kindergarten class in the morning, so full of anticipation! Gave her a kiss and then she started her day in school...

    As we walked to the car, a light mist started to fall, and the sun broke through....the golden light of late morning bounces off the tiny droplets of water...and all is good...

    :brolly:

    Starting the week with a favorite --- FM L'Eau d'Hiver

    Our LAN card refused to work yesterday so I was not able to spend any time on www.

    Finally off work today, finally got this state's ID card, finally went to buy groceries and -- do I need to repeat myself? -- finally got my picture taken for a passport -- hopefully will be traveling this coming spring. All in L'Or de Torrente.

    It has cooled down about 20 degrees here and is raining. Who could ask for anything more?

    Brielle, how did the inspection go?

    Tang, may I say "Congratulations!" or is it too early yet?

    Blind Sniff folks, start a September thread already, we are all waiting. Please?

    Happy New Year for those who celebrate today.

    Happy New Year to those celebrating!

    Inspired by the Musc Ravageur thread, I'm wearing Creed Tuberose Indiana today (after checking to see whether I should be wearing scent #1 for the 3x3). I'm starting to warm up to this note. We're having a beautiful end of summer day here-- 75º, but rising. I'm appreciating TI more and more. Tastes really do change.
    Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
    Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.

    A crisp September afternoon, with brilliant blue skies and just the start of red on the trees....the grass smells sweet, the pines are soft and straw-like, and our Monarch chrysalis looks like a gold-trimmed jade pendant in its little cage.....

    Chanel No19 makes the perfect afternoon scent.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Hi all!

    Today's SOTD was my first test of Serge Lutens Santal De Mysore.



    Butter.

    Butter cascading smoothly over lightly herbal amber and a pinch of citrus, grounded with cinnamon. As the day wore on and the butter faded, there was a beautiful moment combining cedar, the residual amber, the sandalwood peeking through, and the cinnamon (with a pinch of butter remaining) that was deeply enchanting. The base was the sandalwood of the name, but quite weak after the seriously strong butter-fest in first few hours.

    The middle was transcendent and the base was nice, but I'm just not sold on the top. But I can easily see how this could be grail material for some.



    Oh, and my SOTE has been Creed Original Vetiver.



    Typical bright Creed citrus, heavy on the neroli, paired with just a pinch of green grassy vetiver.
