    BOO !

    Hey, Vandair- 888, NOt 666 ????
    Just jokin'. That's a Safraleine fest you got goin' there. So pretty

    I'm off to work, and am NOT allowed to scare anyone-
    So I'm playing it safe in Le Labo Jasmin 17, atop YR Jasmin Tendre body wash and lotion.

    Hoping Sake , Soir, and so many others feel some relief from their woes.

    May it be eerily lovely today...;-)

    BUM!

    I had planned to wear Chergui today, for SSD, but I picked up my Ebay parcel of 1000 EdT from the post office yesterday (a steal at just £4.40!), and in my exuberance covered myself from head to toe in it this morning!

    Shame! (I do smell lovely, though )

    Chaya, I love the sound of your jasmine-y layering ... delightful.

    Have a wonderful weekend dear Basenotes chums.

    Are we synchronizing today or not? I am in SL Arabie, one of the few (3-4?) SL fragrances that move me. Sorry, all Chergui fans, Douce Amere fans and Daim Blond fans.

    We have carved two Jack-o-Lanterns, Mr.T used the template provided by tang's link and I drew my own scary face (look at this wording here! ). He also started digging into the candy dish putting the wrappers right back, we do not know what to expect in terms of Trick-or-Treaters' numbers.

    And the last -- your Scary Movie quiz, some might find it amuzing, I scored 8:

    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.

    Here in the deep, deep south, where I am visiting, it is hot and humid. Luckily I have a small vial of Fire Island in my toiletries bag. Perfect.

    Bois de Violette, probably my favorite SL of all. Not that I wouldn't do just about anything to obtain a FB of La Myrrhe....

    Working only til noon today, then a rare treat of lunch with my daughter, my Dad, and an adoptive brother (at least in my heart). Trick or treating later with my 2 Ninja grandsons, who decided they aren't Power rangers any more since they outgrew last year's costumes.

    Ya'll have a great weekend! :wave:

    For "Lutens' Day" I'm joining Riannon in some Chergui (and thank you for the b-day wishes! Thanks also to Divatologist, Gary & Haunani!)
    Tonight, I'll be switching to Serge Noire. I think Serge Noire might be an acquired taste - lucky for me, I've acquired it!!!!

    Hey, Taolady - did you really get yourself some new wheels???

    Happy Halloween everybody!

    Going to bed after a really scary night at work with people much sicker than usual. Will share this morning's popular Gris Clair with so many of you ;-)

    Hey, do you hear about the new PG Papyrus de Ciane? Described as green, mossy and creamy. Can't wait to try that.

    Thanks for reminding me, Lessa. I'm wearing Rousse, but just pulled out my 1/3-full 1ml vial of Bois de Violette. Exquisite!

    I find SL's florals painfully beautiful. Bois de Violette, A La Nuit, Un Lys strike me as so pure and strong that I find it hard to wear them. But "visiting" them offers fleeting moments of rapture.

    I used to own Feminite du Bois, but [don't start hurling stones] got bored with it. As I smell BdV, I appreciate that its injection from the garden imparts an extra dimension to the FdB formula.

    But, back to Rousse. Before I refresh my memory with online info, I'll venture to say it contains tempered incense and spice and a woody note. "Tempered" is always the key for me when it comes to incense and spice. It doesn't take much from these categories to burn my nose hairs. Heat registers very quickly in my schnoz, and my head throws back to evade the burn. Okay, checking reviews: Yep, BNers are complaining it's too soft, "isn't full bodied and complex," "doesn't excite me," "mellow," "unobtrusive." Hee-hee-hee. That's why Q can tolerate it.

    I have a blotter sprayed with A La Nuit and another with Fleurs de Citronnier. ALN is rich, dense, clarified, filtered, polished jasmine—a yardstick by which others could be gauged. I'm coming to appreciate having blotters perched near my computer. I'm going to love smelling ALN every time I catch a whiff of it. It was just too opulent to apply to one's person at 7:30 in the morning.

    FdC borders on revolting for me. There's good sweet and bad sweet, and FdC smells like a sugar-coated bar of orange-blossom, triple-milled soap. I like the smell of sugar, orange blossom and fine French soap, but not all at once.

    Depending on the whims of international postal workers, a sample of Vetiver Oriental may arrive here someday from a special somebody . Oriental is my rockiest scent category, but if lovely vetiver holds my hand, perhaps I can traverse into it. Reviewers using the words green, powdery, soft, creamy, give me hope that VO may work for me.

    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
