    Good morning all and Good-bye 2011!

    The initial idea was to spend my day in l'Heure Bleue, so I started in vintage EdP this morning, maybe PdT later and see the new year in (old) vintage Extrait... but I am not sure whether my mood strikes differently...

    Anyway, maybe buzz through the year in retrospect in your head in a quiet moment, then kill those bottles of champagne and enjoy yourself and don't feel sorry for anything tomorrow!

    Cheers to you all!

    Good morning everyone and happy last day of 2011! Since I got the Christmas off I have to work, but go off 21.30 at least. Can't really celebrate too much since I'm having the first shift tomorrow. Well, my sister's got the same shifts, so we'll probably do something together after the lateshift.This last day of 2011 I'm wearing Mitsouko. Happy New year all! Hope you have fun!

    Another year with basenoters is a good year indeed. Such a warm community of sweet folks, and you're smart and you're funny and you smell good too!
    Closing out the year in one of it's surprise discoveries: Chanel no. 22
    heading out early with hubby to catch an art exhibit in the city that I am longing to see before it closes for the year.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Hello all. Aromatics Elixir today, the new solid perfume version. Need to compare with the original at some point, but it seems altogether smoother, dare I say less caustic, than the original. The rose appears less strong but still unmistakeably AE. The solid is very cute too (but I draw the line at wearing the thing around my neck)!

    Enjoy the last day of 2011, and all the best for 2012

    Sadly nothing yet as I have a filthy thumping headache which refuses to move despite fresh air, a bit of light exercise (housework) and codeine. Daren't try any of my samples in case I taint them with the headache connection. Still my team have trounced our local 'big team' rivals 4-1 and Mr Ali and I will be out for an Indian meal this evening with good friends. Long weekend off work too so a headache is of small consequence. SotE probably Eau de Soir assuming headache lifts.

    A Happy and Prosperous 2012 to all my new friend on Basenotes xxx

    Daughter and husband are off to the State Fair Park track for the Run into the New Year event. He'll come home with a bottle of champagne, she'll head off with her boyfriend's family, and then my Mr. and I will enjoy the solitude of a clean house. I'm in L'Heure Bleue at the moment.

    I’m joining Ineespenes in Mitsouko this morning. I used to find this unwearable, except for maybe one or two days out of the year, but something has changed and now I love it. She's a fickle thing.

    Quarry, I hope your husband comes home with exactly this bottle of champagne
    I was in L'Heure Bleue this afternoon and now could not resist to break my own self-declared tradition (to wear the vintage extrait at night) and just sprayed myself generously with En Avion. I realize the house is steaming through closed and windows and doors with En Avion's sillage. Well, what the heck... at least I smell good when 2012 arrives!
    Thank you all for your company, wit and personal bits here ... to a great 2012!

    Wow, a lot of Guerlain being worn today...you all smell fantastic. I'll save my L'Heure Bleue for tomorrow perhaps...


    I was scent less all morning (a rare occurence for me normally) but this afternoon I'm having an early dinner (just Ray and I) in a new sample from Luckyscent (that Robin from Now Smell This voted #1 Niche Fragrance of 2011):

    Azemour Les Orangers by Parfum d'Empire



    It is really special. As she says, its an honest-to-goodness citrus chypre and just the fact that someone in this day and age is releasing a new fragrance that smells this retro and vintage from 1st sniff is something to celebrate. I can't wait to give this several more wearings.

    Tonight, at a party when it turns 2012, I'll be wearing my 'signature' NYE scent:

    Orris by Tauer



    Happy 2012 to all of the wonderful guys and gals who I met this year and to those who I only know 'virtually' online here. What a fantastic year it was and I am sure next year will be even better ((bear hugs))

    Sotd- a melange of scents from long overdue decanting. Tonight's scent is undecided.

    Grace a Dieu it's the last day of the year...it's been a tough one with challenges and a few "narrow escapes".
    The highlights definately revolved around this wonderful community of Basenoters....this is just a great place to come to learn and relax- AND I was lucky enough to meet some of you wonderful folks in person at the San Francisco and the NOLA meet-ups, which were FANTASTIC eperiences. Thanks again Rogalal and Quarry for all your organizing efforts.

    Going out New Year's Eve for the first time in decades, because there's a party worth going to: Peruvian dinner and salsa dancing at Thistledown racetrack's Silks club.

    SotD = Carlos Santa for Women layered with a little vintage Nueva Maja, together making a flowery/gourmand Latin cocktail. I will dance all night!

    Today I am trying London by Guerlain from a sample. Not my favorite Guerlain but not a scrubber either. I was going to wear something different tonight, but I have a feeling that London will not wear out, unless I take another shower. We'll see.

    I am very thankfull to have spent another year with my Basenotes friends and look fowrad to a 2012 filled with exciting fragrances.

    I'm going to a ravioli making party this year, same as last year, so I want to wear a scent that will cut through the cooking smells without becoming "overly" as Buffy and friends would say -- I'm thinking either Dioressence or 31 Rue Cambon.
