    Good morning all Hope all those having a rough time feel better soon! Been rather busy with my visitors from South Africa and school the last couple of days,so not entirely updated on the sotd threads I thought it might be weirder than it really turned out,to see my ex again...and not to forget his gf! But I guess it's been so many years now that we're able to have fun together again as friends.Sotd is Shalimar today.

    Tigrushka, That Tilda Swinton homage sounds exotic and lush!

    Mystic Knot- On your next trip to the orient, I want to shlep your bags or something so I can watch this fascinating cultural exchange between you and the SA's.

    Oh yeah ,come along - we'd have great fun - they are truly pissed off with me now. Testing away ,yakking away........I told the Dior SAs that Diorissimo has new packaging and they thought it was weird I knew . ( Now they probably think I have 'underground' connections as well as being a gender bender.) Hence one of them pulled out a new box and took out the new bottle for me - the bottle is about a third larger than the old one ,heavier and it's a good design.

    Great Wednesday everyone


    Pierre Montale' s VETIVER DES SABLES



    Notes of : vetiver, mahogany and Indian spices
    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..."

    Tigrushka I'd been waiting to hear about the Tilda Swinton fragrance, it sounds like a must-try.

    This is my post number 500 on Basenotes, and I ‘d like to dedicated it to my dog, Chubby who left so sudden about 10 weeks ago. I noticed that he’d let me hug him longer than usual when I wearing a certain scent and so when he had to visit the vet , I never fail to wear the scent (I thought) he loved hoping it will calm him somehow.
    I didn’t wear that perfume since his last check-up. And I think I might try wearing it again today….

    Chubby, this one for you…..

    MdO Jabu today for a little liquid sunshine.
    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.

    Good morning!

    Jasper, I am so sorry for the loss of Chubby...

    A major snowstorm arriving here so I'll just put on Bodycology lotion and a spritz of mist from their Gardenia line.

    May each of us navigate today with an abundance of love to guide us...

    Oh, what the heck, I think I'll join Mysticknot and Libertine in Dior Homme (I was thinking about that one already). So that makes a triplet on this smooth, sweet Iris.

    Oh, Jasper, I know what it is to loose a pet..so sorry for you. This was the best tribute for Chubby, for sure! If I could have done it, I'd have bottled up an "eau de doggy ears", it would be my favorite comfort scent!
