    Hello everyone. Coromandel today. Trying to like this fragrance, not succeeding. I am at least finding it 'interesting' today, which I guess is progress from my initial reaction of 'wretched'.

    SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur's soothing, dreamy Bois Farine. It's working especially well in this morning's foggy, misty weather.
    Notes include fennel seed, iris, benzoin, sandalwood, cedar, guaiac wood

    Best to the New Orleans revelers and wishing you all a very good day.

    So much joy to read you, guys!

    Huge welcome back to Kiliwia. You were so missed! Besides, now I have someone to b.tch about our weather and our fragrances.

    Happy Birthday to one of my best BNF and co-conspirator in all things fragrant, DD! I love you, and you better be darn sure of it. Unconditionally!

    Larimar, Tabac Blond again? You are rocking it, darlin'.

    Safe travels to our NOLA-bound people.

    Oh, Sophi, thanks for the jazz morning music. Hard to beat Ella Fitzgerald!

    Today, back to my all time favorite fragrance, the one I keep not being able to top. FM Iris Poudre, in all it's sparkle, powder, rich yet subtle florals and the most yummy creamy drydown - all in perfect proportions for ME It fits me like my own skin.

    New Orleans crew, enjoy your sniffing this weekend! Bring back pics and stories of wonderful fun and perfume company!

    I'm off to Palm Springs for a long weekend of tennis, so may not be posting much. I'm taking only one perfume - Chanel Bois des Iles - it's my second skin.

    Heard this morning as I was leaving for work...

    Sleepy 7-year old "What are you wearing, mama?"

    Me, confused by this since I was standing right in front of her: "Um, a black shirt and gray pants..."

    7 year old: "No, what are you WEARING?" (points at my arm)

    Me: "Oh! What perfume? This is Prowl."

    7 year old: "mmmm" (wanders off)

    I'm wearing Lolita Lempicka today. I'm on the interview panel as we yet again try to fill one of our part-time positions. All the good ones leave and the others just can't seem to learn the computer system (required to keep the job). Sigh... Of the six people we call for interviews only four got back in touch.

    Best wishes for a fabulous time in NO to all our traveling Basenoters!

    I'm in Lyric today, another comfort scent. This was the end of my sample, so it's time for a decant.

    My lovely darling furry boy, Max, will be leaving me after 12 amazing years tomorrow. He's been the best dog, and the first dog I've ever had on my own. This has been the hardest decision to make, since he still wags his tail at me and never cries, but everyone from the vet to my friends/family tells me they agree it's time. He's obviously in pain and I can't ignore it any longer. So I'm draping myself in comfort scents and crying non-stop and saying goodbye. I was blessed to have him, and that's what I'm trying to remember.

    Elizrj - I'm so, so sorry for you, but know exactly what you're going through. On Valentines day 2010, we had to do the very same thing with our dear dog Mickey - 16 years old, and a very much loved (and hugely missed) member of our family. It was honestly the hardest decision I've ever had to take in my life. We spread his ashes by the roses at the back of the garden, and this year were treated to the most incredible display of flowers:



    So, stay strong. It does indeed get easier with time.

    Well, on to happier news. Wishing all those travelling to New Orleans this weekend a safe trip - what a fab thing. Wish I could be there too. Maybe we need a UK Basenotes meetup ?

    Tonight's scent will be En Avion.

    Best to all.

    Elizrj, I am so sorry to hear! I learned the hard way what it means to wait too long to put your beloved dog to sleep. I will never forget this half day... say goodbye to Max in dignity! I truly feel with you. Co-incidently, I dreamed of my Lantana last night and woke up when I felt a choking sadness... I hardly ever remember my dreams.

    This a.m.:

    L' Eau d'Hiver by Frederic Malle



    This afternoon:

    Cologne Blanche by Christian Dior



    These 2 are cut from the same cloth - the Malle is a bit more cherry/heliotrope/floral whereas the Dior is more woody/powdery. Nonetheless, they both are perfect for a crisp, sunny Fall day like today.

    I am sharing the SOTD with easyfish, just the right thing for a musty November day with the wonderful smell of wet leaves in the air.

    That reminds me - I've smelt Santal 33 for the first time today on another person (unassuming guy of 20 years), and the sillage was something out of this world...I could still smell it metres away when he went past me. Poor students (on my uni campus) just didn't know what hit them.
