    Ohh, missed many of these again.

    Charmes & Feuilles by TDC couple of days ago, then a day in Balahe (and at this time it seemed to be a super-amplified, boozy clove-bomb and I didn't enjoy it as much as usual) and for yesterday and today I've been in EL Pleasures Delight. I am missing L'instant Guerlain at the moment and sense a re-stock coming on. Have a sweet/honey-kick going on.

    Happy Birthday again, to inees -- we all sent your birthday wishes yesterday, with cakes and rock concerts in mind -- but turns out it is today! Never too much of a good thing, right?

    Pierre's L'Oiseu de Nuit for me again. It is tantalizingly pretty soft gourmand amber.

    Hey Baldufita - I'm suddenly finding myself wanting fig, too...but I can't find that sample of Rochas Absolu (that one sounds rich and figgy.) I've done a bit of research and have some good notes so I think I'm prepared for the next time I'm ordering samples. I'm pretty sure I've seen a fig thread here - I might have to resurrect that one.

    In the meantime, all I had to do was see the words "L'Instant de Guerlain" and the deal is sealed. It seems I can't go for more than a few days without my golden honey/magnolia fix either, Nukapai. It makes me feel glorious on even the drabbest of days.

    Good luck with the brunch, Lovethescents! I'm thinking a mimosa or a bloody mary couldn't hurt, if there are any on the menu.

    Maison Francis Kurkdjian Cologne Pour le Soir
    Notes include infusion of benzoin from Siam, Bulgarian and Iranian rose honey, incense absolute

    Benzoin! I thought as much. In fact I'm getting a similarity to the wonderful Bois d'Armenie, only a little sweeter, with a more prominent rose note. And incense is always good. No wonder I'm loving this so.

    Have a lovely Sunday, all!

    Yesterday the Sotd was Keiko Mecheri Cuir Cordoba, one of my current favorites. Then in the evening tried PG Psychotrope, which I'm still trying to evaluate. Not the type of scent that I'm usually drawn to, but I think I may end up liking it anyway. This morning it'll be back to Cuir Cordoba to get me through the last day of the orchid show that I'm working as a vendor.

    You will smell divine!! I'm trying to make a 5 ml decant last a lot longer than it should - I'm generally not a dainty dabber, so I really need a full bottle so I can create clouds of the stuff.

    Happy birthday Ines! I hope you are having a rocktastic day. Mwa!

    I've been too busy to drop in and chat for a while, but I'm still enjoying my perfumes, fear not. And I think of you all often and wonder what you're up to and what's new, both in the world of perfume and the world of Basenotes.

    For us, things are turning out pretty well. Small had a catastrophic debut in school last year and wound up a big mess. So we pulled her out and she started in her new bilingual private school 2 weeks ago. She is a new girl. She's gone from begging me not to make her go to school (last term in the old school) to telling me off for not getting her to school fast enough and crying when she has to go home from her new school. We are heaving a collective sigh of relief.

    One other bit of news: when we went home for Xmas I called in to the Eurotunnel Duty Free shop to see if they still had any Vol de Nuit Evasion, which is the edt of Attrape Coeur. Sadly, they didn't have any and had no signs of getting any more in. The SA explained that she thought it was a limited edition and now it had stopped distribution. My guess is that its disappearance is connected to the demise of Attrape Coeur.

    In other perfumery news, this time more personal, my tastes seem to have radically changed in recent months. I am forced to wonder if I may be starting the menopause or something, as it's as massive a change as when I was pregnant and suddenly found myself repulsed by cheese. (Which Small loathes, oddly enough.) I'm right off vanillas and sweeties and into oakmoss. Anyone who knows my tastes of old will be scratching their head at that news!

    Funny how a thread can inspire! I've been thinking about figs since reading posts yesterday! I'm wearing one that rogalal also enjoys -
    Fico di Amalfi, Blue Mediterraneo (Acqua di Parma)
    It just so happens my husband and lab/hound both like it too. Lucky me!
    Going out to breakfast for the husbands birthday celebration, then for a romp on the frozen beach at Dunes State Park - Lake Michigan. This is one of our most enjoyable activities - and really, Lake Michigan and it's beaches are what keep us living in the Midwest! The husband has also requested to see the movie Book of Eli, so we'll certainly squeeze that in before the day is done.

    My SotD...

    A while back, Musse () sent me a decant of Vera Wang's Princess in a huge fairy scent-mother care package stuffed full of goodies. It turned out to be one of my favorite fragrances. I love its sweet cheerfulness, and I don't care if I'm too old for it.

    It's good to hear from you, Wordbird! Happy New Year, and so glad to hear that Small is enjoying her new school.

    Wordbird, wonderful news about Small! Interesting about your preference shift. You may be correct about your reasoning.

    Ubu, your day sounds delightful.

    Everyone is smelling delightful.

    I'm craving something "warm", that's usually amber but today I'm going for incense. Andy Taurer's Incense Rose.

    Following my fig kick, I'm sampling Nicolaï Fig Tea... Contrary to Philosykos, which is a green-fig kind of scent, I find Fig Tea more of a citrus scent, with a certain sweetness to it (if that makes sense!). I don't find it as dark as Luckyscents says this is, but rather fresh and sunny.

    Wearing a drop of Chanel No. 19 edp -- this really is as different from the edt as so many of you have said it is -- and plotting how to spend the rest of my day. Take care, all.

    OMG, it's absolutely balmy today - mid 50s in the middle of Jan!!!!! Busting out the spring scents - and influenced by the fig trend going on here. Evangeline mentioned somewhere about Delrae Bois de Paradis having a fig note - I have never smelled this elusive fie note in this fragrance. Now is the perfect weather to try this spring beauty. And I'm going to try to find the fig

    So....SotE - Delrae Bois de Paradis.

    SIP L'Invisible, which is how I have been on Basenotes lately...

    Very bogged down at the moment editing a book and a pitch for it to send to publishers, plus involvement in a wouldbe writers' site called "Authonomy", which is a kind of self-adjudicating slush pile administered by Harper Collins. I have read and commented on excerpts from over twenty books, and my eyes are now on stalks!

    Nice to hear you had a good birthday, Inees!

    Good that Small is thriving in her new school, Wordbird. I am willing to bet that the menopause could be behind your changing perfume tastes - it is responsible for enough other major changes I'd say anything is possible!

    For the first day of a gourmet food trade show (fun, but exhausting), I wore Guerlain Cologne du 68.

    I was all dressed up (which rarely happens), so I wanted something warm and elegant.

    Side note: I met one of my customers face to face for the first time and he was wearing the most beautiful jasmine attar I've ever smelled. I was too embarrassed to ask what it was... Doh!

    Today was an interesting side-by-side wearing of No.19 vintage and modern extraits. Both are beautiful, but it is remarkable how the vintage really does seem like a product of its time (mossy, dirty, pollen-y) while the modern seems "cleaned up" (sharp, more leathery, peppery, smoky). The modern seems much more "green", too, and not just because of the color of the juice
