    Thumbs up S o t D Friday 18 December 2009

    Hello Basenoters. Have all a fantastic Weekend

    Jean - Paul Guerlain' s




    Top Notes
    bergamot, orange, aldehydes, green accords, lavender, lemon, petit grain, violet, clary sage, nutmeg
    Middle Notes
    pepper, coriander, orris root, rose, jasmine, carnation, honeysuckle, geranium ,Llily-of-the-valley. Base Notes
    cedar, vetiver, patchouli, amber, tonka bean, oakmoss, sandalwood, vanilla.
    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Sensuous. Mmmm... oranges.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Hated by many - loved by a few (including me)....MISS DIOR CHERIE on this coldish morning. A leading contender in the sweet fruit and flowers division. Especially in this cooler weather, and on my bod, any untowardness (read "plasticy" and "overbearing") in this 'fume is tamed into fresh and flirty.

    Eighty-year olds can wear anything they like to piano concerts - and tha's what I'm gonna do!!

    Good morning all This is another one of the days I can't seem to get up in time nor wake up properly! Hoping my morning coffee and some Nick Cave will help! Need to fill in for Santa today and deliver a few presents...and I need to pack! Not long before I leave for my mom now. Kind of looking forward to seeing the sun again,but on the other hand it doesn't quite feel like Christmas then! I'm also in a foody oriental today,but chose Trouble instead.Have a good one

    Went to a Christmas Dance party last night- our friends are serious partiers with a dancefloor, stage and 3 different bands- was dancing until the wee hours. Poor young dd is late for school today because her parents were out too late last night at least its her last day of school before Christmas holidays. Ah my feet are sore, but happy

    Been away for a couple of weeks... I swear it's not because I "wanted" to be away... Just getting used to my new stomach!!! And believe me, this is hard work... Watching what I eat, how I eat it, when I eat it... Phew!!!

    Hi Baldufita - it's so nice to smell you again!

    Hang in there - you'll be where you want to be before you know it. But in the meantime, perfume is a fantastic way to motivate and reward yourself no matter what your goals are!

    My Infini is almost gone so I'm going to work out then reward myself with the very decadent Iris Ganache....lots of it.

    Happy Aloha Friday! The tradewinds are back, and the A/C works here at work! Yeah!

    I was chatting excitedly with my little one about Christmas in SEVEN days! Wish us luck in finding a tree this week...they've sold out all over the place here (most are brought from overseas)...but DH found a Xmas tree farm in the middle of the island! A Xmas tree farm in Hawaii - imagine! So that's our project tomorrow (early!).

    If not, then I'm getting a big potted palm & putting the lights on it (why not?)
