    A very exciting day for me My partner and I have been wanting to get a new car for some time now, after his died very suddenly a few months back and we finally sealed the deal today! We got a Mazda 3 MPS in a beautiful bright blue - it will be so nice to have a reliable car that doesn't overheat as soon as you drive for more than 15 minutes

    Scent of the day - Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Parfum. This was from the Chanel Parfum set I received for Xmas and I was really excited about Coco Mlle, but honestly I'm a little disappointed - it smells a little direction-less. Very pretty but I don't think I will be purchasing a bottle of this when my mini parfum runs out.

    My SOTD is Costume National Homme EDP - This stuff is absolutely fantastic - one of the best new men's releases (but I think women would like it also)! Have a great day everyone!

    Notes include grapefruit, cardamom, bergamot, cinnamon, thyme, cloves, patchouli, sandalwood and labdanum.

    Wanted to have a Woody Wednesday

    Creed Original Santal

    Sandalwood is a staple note in perfumery and as such there many are fragrances around which sandalwood is used as the core. In 2005, Creed released Original Santal which was said to be a modern interpretation of a scent Creed created for the Emperor of Austria Hungary, Franz-Josef back in the 19th century.

    Original Santal is a good example of what Creed released in the early part of the naughts. Many of these fragrances used high-quality ingredients but they seemed to have an almost depressing linearity to them.

    The top of Original Santal begins promisingly with a nice fresh mix of citrus and spice. The citrus is a juicy mandarin accompanied by cinnamon and ginger. The heart is woody, as one would expect from a fragrance called Original Santal, but the dominant wood is not sandalwood, it’s cedar. The sandalwood is present but the cedar overwhelms it and keeps it from ever having a firm grasp of the proceedings. The mix of vanilla and amber in the base make sure the sandalwood never gets the chance.

    Original Santal has good longevity and average sillage.

    Perfume composition was probably more straight-forward in Emperor Franz-Josef’s day but it still seems like something made for an Emperor should be a little more bold than Original Santal is.

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.

    Enjoy driving today TheLipPrint! Sounds like you and your other half are very happy about this new vehicle! Dora recently got a new car too - what fun! Roberto - LOVE the graphics today! Antidote is a wearable/likeable frag that I always expect to hear more about...? I'm spritzing on a wearable/likeable too, Bvlgari's newest release (by Jean-Claude Ellena!) Blu II. It has an interesting evolution from top to base, which keeps it from being just another boring fruity floral - JCE is superb!

    Thinking of Rtamara and family today, and sending positve vibes.....

    BTW, I connected my facebook and basenotes yesterday and lost my I disconnected, and when I tried to get it back, basenotes would'nt accept the picture size?, I went to re-size it on photobucket and now I can't get basenotes to accept any of the links Is this a glitch or is it operator error? Help!

    Good morning everyone. I'm waiting on a piece of furniture to be delivered, so enjoying a lazy morning in Hermes Brin de Reglisse from the Hermessence line.

    After shower, the SotD will be SL Douce Amere again for the third day.

    The SofE will be something VERY relaxing, as I now face having to hook up all my electronics again. I'm staring at the pile of wires right now and getting nervous !! This is something I am not good at, and may take all week

    My headache is 98.9% better. That thing is like three-headed Cerberus, but most of him is back asleep now. I'm wearing Borsari Violetta di Parma this morning. The first few seconds are blissful, but then it's gone. I think I need the soaps of this, just to have them around to sniff.

    RTamara- holding you all in my heart and prayers today.

    Ines and Tigs- it just occurred to me, thatI never tell you how fine it is that you often choose extremely 'happy ' scents in your dark wintry climate
    I think it's wonderful ...!

    Bitter cold, so I am going with Samsara body cream [ oooh ! luxe !] and parfum, too.
    Buffeting against the cold, so pretty.

    I spent a good portion of yesterday in support of a dear friend-
    Resulting, per usual- in a SPANKING pour moi ;-)
    Too bad, quoth I.
    Friendship and truth come first, ALWAYS.

    How hard is that to fathom ?

    Love you all, like cheese, like olives, like chocolate, like 18 year old Macallan.

    Lilybelle, do you find that VdP reappears after disappearing?

    The reason I ask is that I recall reading the following review of VdP in which the reviewer describes how VdP disappears then reappears on her skin 20 minutes later (I think it may have to do with an effect of the ionones):

    And do you find that other violets perfumes similarly disappear on you? Personally I've never experienced this with violets scents, including VdP, so I'm curious.

    Today I'm wearing Pacifica Waikiki Pikake. It has been too cold for my taste, so a whiff of the tropics is cheering.

    I will wear Bois d'Armenie today. After a morning errand, I will spend day three of my staycation in bed, reading and watching DVDs. Alas, my back did its thing yesterday. There went my plans for double workouts. Ah well, I for one won't complain about reading and watching DVDs, a delightful afternoon, indeed.

    I'm in the house of Lauder with Twolf, wearing Estee body lotion and Super Cologne Spray. I love that this fragrance has her name, Estee, simple and elegant, because to me this is the definitive Estee Lauder scent. I'll never tire of it.

    Lillybelle, we must have the East Coast three day monster headache. Mine's still "hanging" around too. Your description is very accurate for me as well.

    My thoughts are with Rtamara & her husband today. As well as those in Haiti & the surrounding Carribean. I called my husband in St. Croix yesterday, but he was unaware of the situation at 5 pm. Don't know the status today.
    I'm sure they will use the surrounding islands & their airports to assist in aid delivery to Haiti.

    Thinking of my sweetie, I'm wearing his Christmas gift, Chanel Coco edt.
