    Default Time To Dust Off Those Spring and Summer Scents.

    OK, so Spring and Summer are nearly upon us and what have you done to prepare? Time to make a list. As for me, I am thinking Vent Vert by Balmain, Fendi Esprit d'Ete, Guerlain's Shalimar Eau Leguere, Cologne du 68, Gingerale by Demeter, NU EDP by YSL, Eau de Lalique, and for evening, when I am feeling wild and crazy, Salvador Dali Pour Homme. Wax your surfboard, see if you can still get into those summer shorts and let's head for the beach. So, what's your plan? I might just pick a few from your list too. Cowabunga!

    I've been quietly building up a warm weather arsenal.

    Bought Neroli Portofino yesterday, and have orchestrated swaps for Varvatos Vintage, Set Sail St. Barts and for L'Instant today. Live Jazz might also have to come out of retirement
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    mine are still frozen... from what I hear it's actually going to stay cold until April actually!
    NEW SPLITS - By Kilian A Taste of Heaven and Beyond Love (full 50ml bottles). .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Most of these get nearly year-round wear for me here, but I do find that Live Jazz in particular gets a workout March-September.

    I live in the UK so seasonal fragrances don't really apply to me - It's cold and damp all year round! =)

    lol We'll get at least a month of sunshine. If the last two years are anything to go by, we'll get 3 good months Last summer lasted forever! It was the best summer I've ever experienced in this country.

    I'm totally out of ideas for summer. I only have Millesime Imperial and Silver Mountain Water, but the latter I won't be wearing as i've been wearing it most winter. Oh and Nautica Voyage. I need something different.
