    Ghandajala, Congratulations! Well done! And now of course you do have a fragrance connected with this day...
    One day while hedonisting I will make a less fluffy photo

    Mimi is in my thoughts.

    I am in sync with Midnight Poison. Didn't like it, even went ''yuk'' in the beginning, but the drydown is nice. A bit too soapy.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Yay, Dr. G! Happy day! Congratulations! (There was never any doubt, was there?)

    Foustie, thank you for the virtual auditory tickle.

    Have a brilliant day wherever you are on our pale blue planet.

    Congratulations Dr G! 4 hour viva though - ugh - sounds like a crime against humanity. Was your external getting paid by the hour? Very well done for getting through it.

    Sending warm thoughts Mimi's way.

    Also synching with quite a few others in Hypnotic Poison. Great minds think alike or fools seldom differ? I'll let you decide

    I am logging in to smell some Poisons! No one is wearing the original yet? Aack.
    I cannot wear anything right now since I plan to do some fragrance smelling in a local outlet that's having a sale. Exciting, huh?
    I won't come away with fragrances, though, but I plan to come away with Christmas list.

    Congrats, Gandhajala! was that the thesis exam? any revisions need to be done? is that IT? Can I call you Dr.? So many questions, you might think your exam isn't over yet

    Thank you all for your kind words today. I'm truly touched. I keep saying it, but you guys & gals really are the best.
    (Warum: yes, that was the thesis exam. Just need to correct a few typos etc, nothing substantial, so effectively that's it ! ).

    SotE will be Mitsouko (vintage parfum).

    Take care all and special healing thoughts for mimi.

    On my stroll in downtown Vienna I happened to find the new Cuir Fetiche by MPG (see thread) and yes, I got a nice sample for further testing as well... the price was it started to rain heavily when I had to walk back to work and I arrived rather soaking wet.
    Sending my continued positive thoughts Mims' way!

    Yay, Dr. Gandhajala! Congratulations, that's a big day! I'll toast for you in the evening.

    News from Warumworld: no sniffing for me, more unplanned work instead because of other people's scheduling issues. I cannot even say TGIF because I have a bigger fish to fry: a break! That is, when all this craziness is over.

    So I went to get some original Poison for the sync... and what?! All my vintage Poison turned?! A wee bit left of Tendre evaporated?! Ugh... more horrible news... I am ploughing through a pile of work while wearing the original Poison, but in its contemporary incarnation.

    Sympathies, W. That is one of my pet peeves. A friend once gave me a sign to hang over my desk. It read:

    First off, my sincere congratulations to gandhajala!!!!

    Second, I'm thinking of you (((Mimi))).

    Third, I'm sending get-well vibes to Cello and anyone else with sniffles, snuffles, or tummy rumbles.

    Finally, I have nothing from the Poison oeuvre, so I am wearing Dioressence instead. Take care, all.

    Well first of all, I'm several hundred bottles into a collection and I am Poison-less. I have really bad associations with it from its heyday. It was the favorite of the coterie of "really skinny rich Mercedes drivin' women of a certain disdainful temperament" prevalent round these parts. Just can't get past that... so I will semi-sync by sporting another of the House's creations today- Dioressence semi-vintage. Semi because I know this is not the new formula but I'm not sure how old my bottle really is.

    Second- Thank you Foustie for what Q referred to as the "virtual auditory tickle".

    When I retire, my two dream travel trips are- spending enough time in Scotland to understand the wee figures of speech, & be drinking on a hill with a man in a kilt and a sporran AND secondly, spending enough time in Buenos Aires to "get" the Tango. LOL As disparate as disparate can be, I know.

    Everyone have a great weekend!

    Added- scent twins with Leesee- YAY!
    Sync'in and Think'in in 2015!

    I'm home early and switched into Laetitia by Rancé. Another sample, but I don't think either this or CN 21 are keepers for me, although I'd like to try 21 on Misterben.

    I'm not poisoning myself tonight as originally planned. I decided to be scent cousins with 30R in Aqua Allegoria Lilia Bella, sprayed right over Anais Anais...is this combo called Anais Bella or Lilia Anais?

    Long night last night (TWO emergency heart caths kept me at work til really late) and an even longer day today ... I was wearing Liaisons Dangereuses. I received a compliment from a co-worker who has never mentioned my scent before. He told me three times how great I smelled today!

    Big congratulations to G! or is that Doctor G?
