Eau de Parfum
Mitsouko parfum. There's a magic about this not long after I put it on that I love. It's what I imagine molten gold should smell like, with a wonderful dark woody incense. I'm not too mad about the late drydown in the current parfum, so I keep re-applying. Any excuse...

Happy Birthday TaoLady, KiatBkk and VM I Hate Civit! Have a wonderful day!
Belated birthday greeting to BlackCat and Whisperingleaves -- had computer problems yesterday and I couldn't send messages.
SOTD is Prada Infusion D'Iris. Yesterday was Vintage Chypre by Coty in memory of my grandmother -- it was her scent. Brought back all my wonderful childhood birthday memories...
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Another glorious day here, which calls for a glorious fragrance - La Perla Parfum Prive, featuring notes of clementine, magnolia, sandalwood, musk, orchid, freesia, osmanthus, rose hip, vetiver and ylang-ylang.
Now on to more imporant things - Happy Happy Birthday Wishes to Taolady! I am so pleased to be in your company on this special day! Many happy returns and many more fragrant hugs! Lots of Happy Birthday cheers for KiatBkk and VM I hate civet too - make it fantastic!
Y'all have a wonderful day!
Happy Birthday to VM I Hate Civet
Sorry, I missed it at the first post!
Wishing the happiest of birthdays to ....
Miss Tao, KiatBKk and I Hate Civet
Have an amazing day!!!
My SOTD is a mixture of Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint along with Nectarine Blossom and Honey.
I've been at a conference for most of the week so I've not posted any SOTDs until now. But I took two fragrances with me.... Barbara Bui and Vivienne Westwood Let it Rock. I was amazed at how many compliments I received on Let it Rock. BB received no mention at all. Sad, since I felt it was the most lovely of the two fragrances.
Anyway, I am so glad to be back home.
to KiatBkk and VM I hate civet
Hope you both have a wonderful, fragrant day!
[SoTD mentioned in previous post (Ivoire de Balmain) still going strong.]

Logging on from an amusement arcade in Bad Arolsen, Germany. I am on a four week business trip and today has felt a little peculiar, as (obviously) no one I have come into contact with today is aware I am celebrating. So it really buoyed me up to receive so many greetings on Basenotes.
May I take this opportunity to wish TAOLADY a very Happy Birthday, also KiatBkk.
And please excuse the low tech nature of this post - the keyboard is a little strange. : - )
SOTD is Guerlain Plus Que Jamais - my HGS still...

Attending to health, hearth.

Tomorrow am, Jacob goes to Munchen for a month, to study at the Goethe Institut.
B and I nearly lost our jobs-
Not funny ;-0

Many happy birthday wishes for Taolady, KiatBKk and I Hate Civet. End-of-May babies rock!
Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes yesterday and today. And for the welcoming back--I've missed my BN friends!
The Prada Tuberose turned into faint snoozeville after a promising beginning. So I tried different fragrances with abandon yesterday while out and about celebrating, including Cuir Lancome (I see why the leather fans enjoy it, although the drydown was more my pace); Pacifica Egyptian Bergamot and Rose (yikes); and Kiehl's Original Musk (must have but still trying to decide between the oil and the EdT). You can bet I smelled interesting.
I'm heading off for a massage a bit later, so lavender essential oil it is for SotD.
Have a lovely weekend, all.
For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

KiatBkk, Taolady and VM I hate civet, best wishes for a wonderful day and weekend. Enjoy the fumes and celebrations.
Chaya, it is nice to see you here. You have been missed and I hope that everything is well with you.
Today I wore Chypre Fatale from a sample, inspired by a thread in the Male Forum about Guerlain's Les Charnels.
Scent of the evening is: Le Dandy by D'Orsay with gratitude to Primrose for the much appreciated sample.
Thank you everyone. Our family appreciates the prayers, hugs, and good thoughts.
I'm wearing Bond High Line today.

Warm hugs to shades of blue .
And I got my "Jicky" on for TaoLady's Happy Day
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

"Are you a wizard?"

SotE is a comfort scent - YR Rose Absolute. Cinnamon dusted rose with a lovely drydown. Yummy and a sweet dream bedtime to boot.
A lot of love going around over here on the Female Forum. Please allow me to join in.

Birthdays are a big deal for me, because none of us are promised another one. Hope you all enjoyed your special days.
