    Good Morning All. I'm in Mary J Blige's 'MY LIFE' Top notes; gardenia, pear, white freesia. Middle; tuberose, jasmine, golden lily, apricot blossom. Bottom; cashmere, praline, sesame, incense. I really wanted to like this frag. but unfortunely the tuberose was just too over the top, other than that, it would of been a lovely scent. It was not your every run of the mill perfume and I enjoyed the dry dowdown but the tuberose kept sneaking in there. Great sillage. Maybe for tuberose lovers this might fit your fancy.

    Congrats to Ubu and Quarry on your Basenotes milestones! What would this place be without you two?! :-)

    I'm testing Tabac Blond, this time in parfum form. It is so lovely, but I think large doses of leather just don't work well on me. :-(

    Congrats to Quarry and Ubu! The anniversaries feel great.

    TaoLady, good to see you! I missed you.

    I am still trying to figure out Sogni di Mare which I tried for Speak and Sniff on Saturday. I cannot describe what it smells like to me and cannot think of anything familiar! When I wore it on Saturday, I thought of Fleur de Corail and Un Jardin Sur Le Nil as points of reference, so now I am testing them side by side and do not sense any familiarity. But Sogni di Mare is a very pleasant perfume and I wouldn't mind a full bottle to keep figuring it out. I am puzzled, but pleased.

    After a few disappointing samples, I'm very happy to be back in the familiar rosiness of Rose Cardin by Pierre Cardin.

    Congrats to Ubu on 4000!!! posts, and to Quarry on your 5-year basenotes anniversary!! I'm glad Bella resurfaced, RHM!

    I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to smell like today... not in an especially subtle mood -- think I'll go douse myself in some Donna Karan GOLD... (inspired by the lily thread).

    I'm wearing Gardenia Passion by Annick Goutal as SotE.

    Mike, I remember that C&E fragrance. I think there was a vetiver one, too. Enjoy!

    Have a good night, all.

    Add my congratulations to the heap(s) for Ubu and Quarry!

    SOTD: Jolie Madame

    I worried that it would be a bit "much" to wear this one today, but it's actually a very nice match for our current weather...and my mood!

    Hope everyone is doing well and that your week has started off in a good way!

    We're back from school supply shopping, a favorite. New pens and markers are just so appealing! Bella has been sleeping all day after her adventure yesterday. We've washed her a few times: a little bit here and there. Her four white soxs are much better today.
    It was so hot this afternoon, 99 degrees F. So I wore Rosine's summer limited edition scent, Une Rose au Bord de la Mer, Eau Fraiche. I spray with abandon, as it's so light I can barely smell it. If I stick my nose right up to my wrist, it smells like a lovely woody rose. Not much sillage, though.

    RHM, so glad that Bella showed up. I know I would be frantic if Cali went missing for that long!

    My sample of Womanity came in the mail today. It looks like someone tried to peel off the little sticker already. I think I might give it a sniff tonight ...

    This evening I'm wearing Pure Poison on one wrist and J. Del Pozo's In White on the other, to see if I can tell any difference. And the answer is....hardly any. They smell a whole lot alike to me.

    Ouch Kewart, I hope you feel better soon.

    Inees, good luck on your exam

    Bella is mischievous, I am glad she is safe and sound at home

    Today I wore Gin Fizz (reissue) from a sample. I liked the top notes but it immediately goes soapy on me. Not bad on a warm day. I really did not care for the musky drydown. Oh well, not all of them can be FBW.
