Good Morning All,

Safe travels and have a great time in New Orleans, Quarry and others!
I'm stuck in last night's music...
Nothing new for SotD, you guessed it!
Have a great day!
Hello all. Ladyboy.
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'.
La Muguet Annick Goutal Enjoy your Thursday wherever you are
LOVE IS BEST

I am layering Gingerbread Body Lotion over Omnia and
listening to the piano tuner attempting to get our instrument
back into shape.
Have a happy Thursday
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Good morning !
Wearing Louve from a sample and like the bite that comes after the fluffy opening. Oh dear, one more for the wish list ..

Good morning all !. SotD is VC&A Cologne Noire
The big BN bash across the pond is imminent - somebody's hitching a ride to New Orleans.

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.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
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.
Caron Or et Noir for me today.

For me it's Loggia dei Mercanti from La Collina Toscana Reserve.
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.
Own skin and second skin, eh?
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

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)
The song ain't lying.
Will be gone almost exactly 500 miles at midnight aboard the City of New Orleans.
Wearing ICONOfly Attache-Moi because it's Mr. Q's fave.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Safe travels to those headed to New Orleans!
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.
Good morning all SOTD is Elie Saab Le Parfum. Love this scent
SotD is Cabaret by Grès.
Yesterday's SotD was Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise. I couldn't get on Basenotes yesterday. :-(
Gotta pack today. We're leaving early, early in the morning for NOLA. Thank you for the good traveling wishes! We'll be sure to take lots of pics. Love you all to pieces. ♥ xo

cello,you said it yesterday about UJALM.I'm so glad I originally sampled that one in cool weather;would have dismissed a great spicy green had I only smelled that melon.
Safe travels to the New Orleans revelers!Hope you all know how envious I am-you're turning my eyes even greener!Have fun,all of you!
The nose wants what it wants!
