    Thanks for all your 'welcomes' after my first post on SOTD yesterday.

    Today it was Noa by Cacharel. Also just had a spritz from a sample of Bleu that my 14 year old son managed to charm out of the nice ladies on the Chanel counter at Selfridges in Manchester.

    Good afternoon!

    Inees, glad you're finished with the hard part of moving!

    Shades - you're a good friend indeed to do the vacuuming

    Wearing OJ Ta'if today. Went for a massage, packed my things for SF, and I'm here at work til 5. Going to spend the night with my daughter so I can be in town for the EARLY flight. Grandkids are excited that "Grandma Sword is going to have a sleep-over with us!".

    Everyone have a great week. I'll probably be incognito until Monday.
    BIG HUGS all around!

    Just back from holiday so a belated welcome from me too, devilcat. I'm originally from Yorkshire too (the avatar may possibly be a giveaway !) - great to have you here.

    It's first day of Fall and I am wearing Chinatown in honor of that. My sample is still pretty full, since this perfume lasts quite long on me. I will be contemplating a bottle or decant after finishing the sample since I keep returning to this scent in my mind. Despite the springtime looking bottle with cherry blossoms, this is a Fall fragrance to me, and not very cherry (and not very pink for that matter). To me it's woods with a note of ripe peach, smell of the harvest. Unfortunately, it makes me think about sad things -- for instance, about the fact that Fall quarter starts in 5 days...

    Oh, another welcome here, too, devilcat! Nice to see you on the boards!

    For the first day of fall...

    Someone on Tesla's fall fragrances thread mentioned loving this one this time of year, and I've enjoyed it so over the summer, I thought, Why not! If KC turns out to be a year 'rounder for me, more's the better.

    I'm in Evelyn today, a good choice for what started as a routine day but got more hairy as time went on. Mom's been throwing up-- caught a virus-- off to the Dr. for her, then we sat and watched Jane Eyre together, with her barfing a few more times.

    And now I'm home just in time to eat lunch and then meet my daughter at the bus stop to take her to her pediatrician for her yearly checkup and followup on a medical issue.

    After that I can go back and watch Mom some more and try to get a bit of nourishment into her.
    It's been one of those days when she remembers Dad, cries, and tells me not to grieve too much when she dies.

    I'm going to throw myself a little pity party for a few minutes before I go on with my day.

    Aww...30 Roses, that's sad. Sending you and your mother both (((hugs))) today.

    Sending Quarry a (((hug))), too, just cuz I love her Q.

    The post lady brought my vintage Réplique parfum. I just now took a drop from the teeny tiny bottle to test, and I think I'm going to looove it. Enough to be annoyed trying to hunt down more. Why do I do this to myself?

    OMG...she still looks pretty good...

    Carolina Girl and Devilcat, here's another welcome to Basenotes coming all the way from Staten Island, NY!

    Joining the Guerlainers in Cologne du Parfumeur, refreshing in today's uncomfortably hot and humid weather.

    Best to all!

    Mitsouko's longevity is confirmed : I put a moderate dab of the parfum on my forearm at 8:40 pm and now it's 7:50 am and the woody base is still there....faint, but there.

    May Virginia Wing have the same longevity and live to be 100...or more!

    Ah... last night I went to bed wearing... I forget! (really!) But what I did remember was the scent of the JoAnne Bassett Perfumes Sensual Embrace' musk and sandalwood drydown that was clinging to my nightshirt from two nights before! Which made me realize how much I love musk and how it sometimes makes me anosmic until much later in the scent's progression. (which can be a lovely surprise.)

    Today I wore Basenotes Fragrance Project's Scent A, and though I won't describe it here, it did give me pretty whiffs throughout the day... mostly as a skin scent... but I enjoyed it anyway!

    Tonight, I'm testing...Anya's Garden Perfumes Kewdra, another Mystery of Musk sample courtesy of Mimi G! Very earthy and herbaceous so far... but it was just applied. We'll see how it develops!

    Tom Ford White Patchouli -- exhausted after the day of shopping for fall clothes. Got a sweater and a jacket, regretting not buying something that I would probably need but have not bought because I think I have already got something similar and it is in the particular color -- maze!

    Hugs to Pomander and 30R.
