    Hiya all,
    I'm back to the land of the living after a looong spell of arthritis pain, and on top of that I had a bad reaction to a shot I had at the hospital. I've had a really high temperature for three days and I've felt more dead than alive.

    Today I'm fine though, I've got new meds for my arthritis and I'm so looking forward to the long Easter holidays. The sun is out here in southern Sweden, birds are chirping away and I'm in Coco Mademoiselle for the day.

    Have a good April Fool's day everyone! I love what someone's done to the avatars :-)

    Many posters this morning! We are having the last day in the 80-s F, and then the temps will drop back to normal for the north.

    Welcome home, MK! We also stopped by the travel agency to inquire about the airfairs to go see my European mom this coming summer -- project in the works!

    Happy April Fool's and please be prepared for the pranks and jokes today.

    Lys Meditteranee from Malle for me again, hooked on this stuff.

    Finally, saw How to Train Your Dragon last night -- can't recommend it enough for the whole family, especially if you have teenagers in the house -- wonderful animation, graphics, attention to the detail, humor. Very nice!

    Hi everybody,

    I've had a very buisy but fun week. Met VM I hate civet for dinner in Basel on tuesday. She baffled me with her near perfect German. We spoke German all evening long, laughed a lot and sniffed perfume in the restaurant. It came to the point where I had to search for free skin and was starting to get worried that we would be kicked out of the restaurant for offending the other guests. But no one complained.

    Then today, I got a message from VM I hate civet saying she was standing in a supermarked in front of a bottle of Chateau de Potiron. How cool is that? I didn't know someone named a wine after me.



    SotD is Guerlain Bois d'Armenie kindly provided by the lovely lady mentioned above.

    apparently only some of the members are seeing the muppets avatars (me included). There's two threads about that (one of them on the off topic section). Most of the people posting there are seemingly not believing the ones claiming to see the muppets avatar and all are getting a little cranky. Here's what I am seeing:

    and pardon for the off topic post. I'm sure it's just a april fool's joke (I'm actually quite fond of the muppet animal avatar) but a few are starting to get panicky.

    Good morning all! Sun is peeking out here in NYC but we are still a bit temperate...although the weather reporters promised 70 degrees today. We shall see.

    I started my day in Van Cleef & Arpels Murmure, a woody floral with a cedar base and heart of jasmine. When I first bought it (unsniffed, on eBay, on a whim because I was buying something else from the seller and this looked interesting) I didn't like it. Felt it was too floral, too white. But a year later, I quite like it. I am one of the (lucky?) few that can tame jasmine...she does not amp into a riotous indolic shout on me. Here is a nice review at Scented Salamander

    Notes (also from SS): Top notes include freesia and white rose with essence of mandarin orange; heart notes are made up of jasmine sambac absolute, orange blossom and cassie flower, and the base notes are comprised of Brazilian rosewood, cedar and vanilla infusion.

    On me, the freesia last quite a long time, blending gently into the orange flower over time. The cedar is present from the very beginning and hangs on long, with rosewood emerging more as the drydown continues.
    Beauty is but the sensible image of the Infinite.
    Like truth and justice it lives within us; like virtue and the moral law it is a companion of the soul.

    Thinking about this weekend's SnS - Florals! Yeah! Looks like last year's April SnS was narrowed down (somewhat) to spring florals - sounds lovely! I was reading through all the things sampled...I do love my roses, but am thinking that it would be another good reason to track down that sample of Manoumalia, which may well be my next FB. Anyhow...

    SOTD: Paco Rabanne Calandre


    I do love the "green florals", and this one is absolutely superb (nice price, too!). Love the BN reviews on this one (agree wholeheartedly with vintage*red!)

    Mochi227, I have Murmure and wear it once in a while, but I have to be in the mood -- just like you said -- white florals and woods. I have been having a partial bottle of it for sale in the Sale forum for the longest time and nobody was even remotely interested.

    Anyhow, we are as hot as Florida here today -- my thermometer is showing 82F, but it is the last day of warm weather, they said. Spritzing on some Terre d'Hermes for the afternoon.

    Tao, the names are funny (twins, Roughnut and Toughnut, for example), the humor is dry, the ships, seascapes/landscapes are magnifisent, almost said that makeup and costumes (hahahaha) would be nominated for the Academy Award, and then decided that they probably would not! :-)
