    What a lovely picture libertine. I will be rather casual but I hope to get a good smelling joyful New Years Eve. We are going to the theatre to wach a farce this afternoon and my fragrance is Hasu-no-Hana from Grossmith. Best wishes to all Basenoters!

    Still in my pj's and still unscented... Black ORchid or Black ORchid Voile de Fleur? Or any other suggestion? I want it to be festive with loads of sillage...

    Just HAVE to bubble over with love and gratitude for my BN friends....got a loverly big bulky pkge. last evening from *Dora* who - out of THE BLUE - offered up some Broadway Nite cuz Id been wingeing about how my decant was gone. But, my dears, not JUST a huge decant of BN but five, count' em,
    5
    lovely cousins... including this ayem's
    Park Avenue.

    This is an "Oh Boy" frag for me - a cloud of lovely mimosa (more full blown than SummerbyKenzo) with a drift of my much-beloved paper whites. It dries down to a sort of Lipton's over camomile. If it continues to wear like this it's gonna go on the lust list.

    Neither one of these Bonds have much of a fan club (tha's OK...more for ME!!) but both work well on my skin in this climate and - in the case of BN, anyway - have friends and strangers demanding to know WHAT that heavenly smell is!!

    Saving up Broadway Nite for tonight's festivities.....thankyouthankyouthankyou darling *Dora*!!

    So far, I'm preparing this evening's festivities in Sira des Indes (Patou) bodylotion and will follow with the perfume before I leave the house.

    Baldufita, I think you should go with Black Orchid. That's my favourite of the two.

    Have a great evening and night all, whatever you're doing!

    Yay, Taolady! Yay, Dora! I love Basenoters.

    I'm wearing a spritz of Shalimar edc this morning on my wrists. I'm not sure what I'll wear later. We're planning to stay home tonight. I have a bottle of Champagne in the fridge so we can toast in the New Year while watching the ball drop on TV.

    I'm wishing everybody on Basenotes a happy, blessed, healthy, prosperous 2010 (that number just amazes me). You are a community of lovely, kind, generous, intelligent, humorous people, and I am so glad to have made your acquaintance, and I thank you for everything I've learned here about fragrance and any other number of topics.

    Many blessings to you all in the New Year!

    I finally chose Black Orchid... Seemed more festive and the sillage is to die for... I'll choose something more "timide" for tomorrow and the 2nd (when we will be celebrating NY... )...

    Thought I'd read along this thread for some inspiration before deciding on SOTD...but you all are wearing my faves and making it more difficult to decide! Musc Ravageur, Sira des Indes, Mitsouko, Black Orchid VDF, Shalimar, Havana Vanille ~ Good Grief!
    Maybe some Chanel...yes, definitely Chanel...31 Rue Cambon! Happy New Year!

    I've been sick for several days and not wearing any fragrance. Feeling better now, I'm venturing out to do some errands and shopping while wearing Etro Heliotrope.

    I think I might wear Ambre Sultan for tonight's festivities.

    Please everyone, have a safe and fun New Years Eve.

    Shannon, I'm sorry you haven't been well but am glad to know you're doing better now.
    3xasif, I know exactly what you mean about Plus que Jamais, it's just so darned beautiful.

    Scent twins with Lilybelle in Shalimar, parfum for me.

    Take care, everyone.

    I spent the morning decant various things here and there, and I smell like a whole bunch of stuff...the one that stands out the most prominently is:

    Putains des Palaces by Etat Libre d' Orange (from a sample - thanks ubuandibme)



    Two words: Face powder. Lot's of it. Not sure I can comfortably wear this one.

    Later on tonight it will most likely be what I reach for every new year. Orris by Andy Tauer.
