    Good morning all.

    Happy independence day to you Tigs and to all the other celebrants.

    I am joining Tigs in chez Lutens with Un Bois Vanille, i adore this scent and that is saying so much because i usually do not "adore" vanille scents. I am almost done with my sample bottle and a darling BNer ((HUGS)) has another on the way to me. It will be an early holiday for me soon

    Hope you all have a fabu day, love and hugs.

    5th Avenue for me today as well. Sometimes I feel i should explain why I wear this fragrance. No one else seem to appreciate it on the boards. But no. I don't have to explain why I wear this non sofisticated frag. Oh! Now I sort of have explained that I am aware of this so that people here at basenotes understand that I am aware of this ...

    Happy independence day tigrushka!

    Starting the day in Amouage Jubilation XXV. We celebrate Sinterklaas today - a day later than the Dutch. Except in Switzerland we call it Samichlaus or (where I come from) Santiglaus.

    So it's a day of celebrations. Happy indipendenceday, Finland!

    To quote Brielle, it feels like early Christmas here: cold, white, with cookies baked and with the parcel from Europe containing 18 decants (about 90ml) of scents that a very kind BNer had sent here to Wolfland. Wearing Penhaligons' Artemisia. I have not been able to find a single Penhaligons' that is a FBW for me, but there is something about them that keeps me trying without giving up.

    Happy Independence Day to all Finns!

    My middle daughter is with you Brielle in SL Un Bois Vanille. She loves the sample I gave her. It's too marshmallowey for me.

    I'm complimenting you both in the drier SDV by Guerlain. It's fast becoming my Sunday snug.

    After reading Lightgreen22s thread I just had to wear Cuir de Russie today (EDT) to keep me warm on this snowy morning. CdR is so soft and beautiful. So luxurious.

    Thanks to Basenoters, I "scored" a bottle of Colony by Patou. It is a classic fruity chypre that is easy to wear. I'm so glad that I had a chance to try it, because it is discontinued. Since it would have been changed due to the dreaded oakmoss base, I feel that it's better to discontinue a fragrance rather than to sell an imposter.

    Yesterday I smelled iris for the first time! I thought Iíd remain anosmic to that note forever. Just as Iíve struggled to detect violet; just as water lilies (Nyphaea odorata) are odorless to me; just as white moss is meaningless, and 31 rue Cambon may as well be cooking oil, I was resigned that iris would never register in my nose/brain. But, ComDiva, my angel, sent some DSH oil-rich Modern Iris (which reminds me I need to get out the DSH Nouveau Gardenia), and finally the words Iíd often read found a way to register: earthy, cold, scent of spring.

    On my skin, the MI got a bit lost, but sitting open on my desk, itís like keeping a bit of the garden alive. I think there are a couple of scents best sitting next to me rather than on me. But that's okay. I get to experience more than one frag a day that way. So, technically, Iím wearing the very green AbdesSalaamís Oak Moss because I want to see how it plays against the green Modern Iris.

    Winter? What winter? Iím in a garden as long as Iím at my desk.

    A lot to celebrate today Happy Independence Day to all Finnish Basenoters and a wonderful Samichlaus celebration to Potiron. Easy with those sweets, dear

    Dimitri, the art of your wife is really exquisite, thank you for sharing.

    Kbe, thank you for that great picture of Sinterklaas and explanation of our December 5th tradition

    After all the sweets of yesterday I am craving something more spicy:

    Congratulations Quarry! I can appreciate what a gift this is because I struggled with it too - then one day it just appeared to me in the form of Chanel No19 - the current edt, actually. I'd been wearing No19 for years, but was somehow oblivious to the iris. Now I seem to be able to detect it anytime it's in a fragrance, and it's possibly my single favorite floral note, rose being the other contender.

    I'm in vintage Opium today. That other thread made the decision for me, but that's okay - I sometimes like having others tell me what I want - less pressure for me. I'm quite happy with the results.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Dimitri- your wife's icons are incredible. My mother is Russian Orthodox and she has a collection of icons- she would SWOON over your wife's art. I'm speechless at the beauty.

    Well, big football (NFL) night here, and I am making chicken parmigiana! YUMMY!

    Do any of you ever wish you could consult with BNers about your scent on those days you just can't choose....falling back on MPG Or des Indes, warm & comforting. I *need* more warm scents. Yes, Bois des Iles, I'm talking to you.

    I fished my Shalimar mini out of the Last Chance sample box this morning I still can't wear this one, it's too sharp on me at the opening. Switched to Timbuktu, and then to a Mitsouko sample post-nap. There is something compulsive about this one. I'm not sure that I need to own more than one chypre at a time though.

    Enjoy Mr Izzard, Libertine!

    I'm wearing a sample that Mysticknot sent of Vanille dÓvine des Tropiques by La Maison de la Vanille. I really enjoy the tropical florals/vanilla mix in this (vanilla, tuberose, hyacinth, jasmine, heliotrope, gardenia, aldehyde) It's creamy, sweet, feminine and charming. There is a sampler set of the entire line on Lucky Scent that is calling my name...
