    Lilybelle, a very Happy Birthday to you! I hope you are enjoying fantastic weather as we are in CT today.

    It's time to get reacquainted with my long-neglected violets. I am currently wearing a sample of Violetta di Parma. Pleasant enough but I do not foresee a bottle in my future (of this or any other violet-- I already have too many!)

    Guerlain's Mitsouko PdT. Christ, I love this. After all these years, I still get blown away by its beauty each time I push the sprayer.

    Fragonard Grain de Soleil, a rich, warm oriental with a soft, muted spice and a beeswaxy/resiny note I just love.

    Happy Birthday Lilybelle!

    I had nothing for the celebuscent Friday so I wore Mitsuoko.

    I haven't applied any frag this morning (yeah, it is STILL morning, just had to check!) and haven't made up my mind exactly what to wear. I need to sort out my frags and get a cabinet to store 'em in, the house needs a top to bottom tidy/sort/clean, and the yard needs a workover... (this is how it goes when you're a homeowner who's too busy to do that everyday stuff due to the job and trips out of town!). Fortunately, the weather may be turning a little cooler as the heat of recent has made me suffer from a huge case of ennui, which doesn't help the productivity outside of work! (le sigh.) :-)

    Finally landed on a SoTD, as my JoAnne Bassett Perfumes Le Voyage EDT arrived in the post. Ayala's review of the scent describes it to a T. I think it will do better once I wash off the yardwork though, as right now it's competing with a little sweat, cut grass and gasoline smell. (I have so little self-control when a scent arrives!) Quite a feminine scent with a nice citrus start, and natural all the way. So far, I like it very, very much and think that it may become a standard in my 'drobe (in rotation with Samsara, Mitsuoko, as my fave femmes) on days I'm feeling particularly girly or need that extra girly "kick".

    Thank you very much again for the birthday wishes! Basenoters are lovely people! I'm being a bit of an ingrate this afternoon. I'm feeling cranky because my husband is "forcing" me to go out to a nice restaurant tonight, and I'd rather stay home and have takeout sushi and watch a movie. Somebody shake me please. SotA/E is Prada L'Eau Ambrée.

    Ahhh! I have the same tendencies — staying home, feeling forced, turning cranky. Why is this so hard for others to understand that home is the ultimate destination? I volunteer to shake DH.

    Ah, Lilybelle and Quarry, I too understand. Particularly, on your birthday, it's a day to do what YOU WANT TO DO. I don't know why that's too much to ask, but I also volunteer to shake the DH. Nice intentions can be SOO annoying sometimes. (curmudgeonly me? Probably.)

    Luna, that is a really cool ballet-tango interpretation.

    Joining in on the LILLYBELLE birthday wishes! you'll be loved, whatever you end up doing tonight.

    Say this fast 3 times: "sophi is in Salamina wearing Strip" You smell good, sista!

    Well I had work field trip yesterday, which included 4 plus hours on a bus in LA traffic. I'm ready to vegetate today.
    No SOTD chosen yet, so I am officially scentless- I have a lot of sampling backed up. Perhaps later

    SOTD: FM Lys Med - a sample from dear Haunani!

    The first time I tried it, it was a bit "much" for me...but I'm so glad I tried it again, because on this beautiful Saturday afternoon, it is really very lovely. Plus, it's all lilies and LOTV...and what better day to wear it?

    One more happy birthday hug to Lilybelle from me!

    Today is also a day to remember my dear father, who would have been 75 today.

    [IMG]Been sooooooooo busy with school starting and hanging out every weekend we can at the RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL!!! It is awesome fun! Buying some really cool scents, of course! To the masquerade event today I wore Amber Scent's "Full Moon," and this evening after a sandlewood/jasmine/grapefruit/frankincense salted-bath I dabbed on Amber's "Nymph." It is other-worldly. Both are fragrance oils containing sweet oriental opium and vanilla. She has a shop on Etsy:

    I made the rounds today to warn the stores that the SF Basenotes meet-up would be plowing through on the 25th (it's not too late to join us!!!)

    Along the way, I got myself sprayed with the new Clive Christian C for Men. It's quite good and I'm enjoying it. But not $385 enjoying it...
