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..."

Tolerable Monday to everyone else.
Hilde Soliani Vecchi Rossetti for me today.
Get well soon Inees!
I'm in Eau de Star. Serious overdose warning, this fume needs but one spritz only, or else it's murder by perfume.
Happy birthday, bookshop88. I too, would like to see you post here more often. We could get to know you better.
SOTD is Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare from a lovely basenoter who sent me a beautiful decant. Thank you!!!

Happy belated birthday to RHM and a happy birthday to bookshop88 !!! I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Today, is a repeat of Friday's scent - Citron de Vigne (Fresh). Just beautiful.
Don't let those Monday blues get the better of you...

Today I'm in Lemon Sugar. I know it's not thought of very highly in this forum, but I consistently get compliments when I wear it, and today was no exception.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania
Wish you all a smooth start to the week!
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
This morning I'm in Mitsuoko, vintage EDT...
And it is supposed to rain here, quite a LOT.
M is one great rainy day scent.
Happy birthday to Bookshop! (Statistically, do we have more Geminis here?)
Healthy vibes to all (especially optically, poor ineespenes).
Breaking out one of the things I loved last winter, the discontinued ( makes angry Piggy groan) VIP Room -- imagine Bulgari Black’s leather with sweet pineapple & tiare.

Eau de Toilette
I'm in vintage Safari today - a perfectly gorgeous, soapy and green rosey chypre. I'll love it forever.
Welcome Texanna - you'll have lots of fun here!
Happy Birthday bookshop88!
~ Y'all have a wonderful day! ~
Club Med ~ My Ocean for Him. Wishing you all a day filled with light.
Happy birthday to Bookshop88 ! Have a fun day !
Scent of the morning is Sous Le vent. In love with this one .............
Happy Monday, all!
I'm in my blind-bought Dior Dune. Oh, it's yummy. Sweet and rich and dry -- I'm shocked that so many people don't experience this as floral, on me it's very flowery without being dainty or heady.

This scent is great, but ... MORE KITTENS!
Kuumba Made Persian Garden
Today I just had to wear the 1960s L'Aimant cologne that I found the other day at Goodwill. This is not a scent I ever wore back then, so it is interesting to me.

I am wearing the breathtakingly beautiful Songes.
Wearing Bond No. 9 Montauk. I'm loving it!!!
From Sample - Thanks Denyse & HDP
Chanel No. 19 eau de toilette
I am wearing Fleurs de Rocaille today. I knew I would. I have to attend a committee meeting today and I sense that I will need a lot of confidence to stand up to committee members with more seniority, and I will feel better doing so while wearing a breathtakingly beautiful combination of bright crispy aldehydes and flowers warmed by my skin. Mmmmmm!
It might be time for a FB. My precious decant (thanks, dear friend!) is getting lower and lower. I watch the line going to the bottom. It's love.
Hello to all, and Happy Birthday wishes to the birthday people! I'm going away tomorrow for a holiday before I start my new job on the 21st.
I picked up my package from the post office this morning, of vintage Mitsouko EDC. It's glorious! I get spicy peaches, leather, woods. That's my SOTD.
Happy Birthday BookShop88!!!
Welcome to Basenotes Texanna!!!
Very Humid and Hot.....Went with Central Park by Bond No.9
Good day to all, hope this is the start of an enjoyable week for all.
Welcome to BN Texanna!!
Happy Birthday Bookshop. Wherever you may be hopefully you are having a fabulous time and wearing something delicious...and eating something delicious also.
Ines, I do hope your poor Augen will be feeling better soon and all healed up.
Today I am wearing vintage Guirlandes by Carven. It has been discontinued for so long I guess there is "only" vintage I have loved this for ages. When I was a young girl my mama gave me the extrait of it, beautiful hot-pink design box, and I just fell in love. Still a mainstay during the warmer months.
Hope the day will be smashing for all, hugs all around

Quand on boit l'eau, il faut penser à sa source
Happy Birthday BookShop88. Welcome to Basenotes Texanna.
Today I am in:
Castelbajac, with its wonderful French School Glue accord, for a day sticking and glueing. I've been making paper beads.
And congrats to Candy Perfume Boy on finishing up the portfolio. Nothing nicer than having everything all neatly mounted and presented and in one place!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Happy b'day to Bookshop88 (good year!), and belated wonderful birthday wishes to our dear RHM and Taolady (who was earlier, but I am out of synch!) !!!
I've spent the weekend renewing my delight in several of my Parfumerie Generale fragrances: Querelle, L'eau Rare Matale, and today - L'eau Guerriere. All gorgeous, all different, and surprisingly , the L'eau Guerriere is the shortest-lasting on me. I'd had L'eau Rare Matale pegged for that dubious distinction, but it would seem I'm mistaken. Ephemeral or not, however, they are all FANTASTIC fragrances, in my opinion! Especially Querelle.
Querelle notes: Citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitain vetiver, incense, oakmoss, ambergris.
L'eau Rare Matle notes: Sage, white flowers, bergamot, black Matale tea, Virginia cedar, Chinese cedar, vetiver, birch, burnt woods, pepper and musk.
L'eau Guerriere notes: Cinchona bark, sky aldehydes, olibanum, aloe wood, musk.

It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Happy Birthday Bookshop88. Get well soon Ineespenes.
I got called into work unexpectedly (Supply Teacher) so almost
forgot to apply perfume. Luckily I keep a few bottles on a
table by the door and I chose Rive Gauche.
Coromandel by Chanel.
Burberry The Beat for a busy day getting ready for my husband's birthday party tonight. Happy birthday to all the Gemini's so far....
If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.
My Sote will be Wall Street by Bond No.9
Time to bed now, here,
A, quales ego mane rosas procedere vidi!
Nascebantur adhuc neque erat par omnibus aetas.
Moving right along, the afternoon is dark and rainy and I received a bottle of Samsara EDT today, along with some large samples of ... other stuff. So, the SoTA is Samsara... once I get past my chores that seem to have lasted forever (or since Friday evening) I'll post some sort of review... just I'll briefly say that on my skin, it's kind of like Mitsuoko's louder sister who also happens to love flowers and incense, and my nose is not getting the super-synthetic wood note our own Off-Scenter mentions in his reviews.
FM L'Eau d'Hiver
Vol de Nuit extrait- my soul perfume .............
