Bois des Îles (Exclusifs EdT) kinda day.
Best to all.
Good morning friends!
Our unseasonally warm, dry weather has now reverted to type,
so we have damp and cool conditions.It's a mellow, yellow "Le
Parfum de Therese" kind of morning. Enjoy your day.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Bois des Îles (Exclusifs EdT) kinda day.
Best to all.
I have a good excuse for my SotD... I was in a terrible rush and did not make it better by applying my SotD. I frantically spritzed Tabac Blond, which was easy to reach and dashed off...
Have a great day (sunny but very cold this morning - 5°C)!
I'm in Goutal's Ambre Fetiche today. Settling down with 1 or 2 scents a day instead of, er, 14 like last week's mad sampling!

Morning all. Belle d'Opium today.
Good morning all !. SotD is Trumper GFT.
Enjoy your day.

Good morning everyone. I think I will have a wee chat this morning because I don't start work till four.
First of all. Great excitement this morning when I arrive home from the weekend away to discover a little parcel. A very special little parcel from a generous Basenotes friend, something which I will try to keep my paws off till the appropriate time. Danke liebling! (You are spoiling me boys! I love it.) I will keep you all guessing what it is. Ha ha.
Next, a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to PERFUMED LADY, hope you had a lovely time.
Hedi, great pictures with your Dzonghka day! Thanks.
Fleurine, TANGO! Attagirl!
And devilcat, I loved your story about the perfume shop!
Larimar, you are such a Bon Viveur, and you do make me laugh! The poppy seed rolls story. They will be great with your quince jam and a hunk of cheese!
You also reminded me of a very famous story. A posh BBC announcer, doing a link after the inimitable Fanny Craddock's cookery show, commented, "and if you try this recipe at home, I hope that all your doughnuts turn out like Fanny's.....".
SOTD, Laboratorio Olfattivo Esvedra, from a big sample.
Take Care all......
They will be back from New orleans soon!!
Started the day with Caron's No.3. It's quite warm (65 degrees at 5:00 am) and cloudy here. Predicting storms later in the week. Which can mean tornadoes. Which ain't good.
The funny Fanny story was hilarious, thanks! (here in the USA the word has a slightly different meaning than in the UK, I read on a BN's blog).
Larimar, we are going to drop down to 17F (-8C) tomorrow morning, or so my 4-day weather forecast says.
Right, can't wait for more NOLA stories and MP's ideas.
Clinique Aromatics Elixir.
Montale Patchouli Leaves this morning

Good morning! My SOTD is Jean Paul Gaultier - La Cologne Fleur du Male.

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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
Good morning!Just catching up on my thread reading-thank you all for the sweet and kind birthday wishes!I've said it many times but I'll say it again;I'm lucky to be here at BN,among some of the finest people around!
Don't want to bore you all with too many details but I do have to say the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame was very cool.They have some fascinating permanent exhibits on the birth of radio,DJ and early proponent of R&R Alan Freed(his ashes are actually interred there),Les Paul and Pink Floyd's The Wall.Saw Janis Joplin's porsche with psychedelic paint job,very exciting-she always looked so happy in photos with that car.What stole the day for me though was the temporary Women Who Rock installment.Can sum it up like this:the clothes!Oh,the clothes-some grimy,like an outfit from Patti Smith with CBGB grunge just ground into it,or Kim Gordon's beat-up little ballet flats.Some stunning-Cher's Bob Mackie Native American costume-the headress for this thing is just amazing.Another beauty was the sparkly blue one-shoulder minidress designed by Stephen Sprouse for Debbie Harry.So many items-everything from Mama Maybelle Carter's bowling shirt right on up to Lady Gaga's meat dress(yes,it is truly disgusting).So very glad we went during this exhibit!
That's more than enough rambling!-No.5 EDP for me today.

The nose wants what it wants!
L'Eau Ambrée by Prada today.
Happy Monday! Wearing L de Lolita Lempicka today. Twolf- 17F already... burr
Wearing Elie Saab Le Parfum again. Thus far, my most worn in November. Perfect scent for our low 80's high 70's temps.
I transferred my sample of Montale Highness Rose to an atomizer and am testing it today.
It is very similar to AG Rose Absolue but more sedate.
cold weather arrived
Yerbamate nice and soft.

Une Rose by Frederic Malle
SotE - Amouage Epic Woman (sample)
Notes include - cumin, pink pepper, cinnamon, damascene rose, geranium, jasmine, tea, amber, musk, frankincense, oud, sandalwood, guaiac wood, patchouli, vanilla and orris.
The male orientated version is far too astringent for my taste but this grandiose beauty is ticking all the right boxes so far. A distinct possibility for the Xmas list ....
Hola! I'm back from my tennis weekend, and have much catching up to do, specifically our New Orleans posts Was almost rained out in the middle of the desert - an odd combo. But we managed to get in 6 hours of play on sunday, and I arrived home around midnight last night, sore but happy.
Sampling Hors la Monde Shiloh today - a woody little rose number. Not my favorite genre, but this is pleasant enough for a relaxing day.
A dab of Caron Acaciosa Extrait from my sample tonight... Probably a strictly indoor fragrance for the first hour as it is really intimidating my manliness...huh
Wearing the lovely Dolce Vita.
