    Happy New Year Everyone !

    Ungaro II today. Travelling back to London after 10 days away. It has been wonderful to relax a little and spend time with family and friends. Equally though, it will be nice to get back to a routine ( creature of habit that I am).

    Hope everyone is well.

    Good morning everyone and Happy New Year !.




    SotD is Roja Dove Danger PH (sample).



    Off to see the Royal Philarmonic later today performing a special New Year programme that sounds potentially great IMO -

    Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture 'Fingal’s Cave'
    Grieg Peer Gynt Suite No 1
    Bruch Violin Concerto No 1
    Dvorak Symphony No 9 'From The New World'

    Will have to decide on an appropriate SotE later.



    Welcome aboard ExpectingRain

    Happy New Year!
    My first SotD was adrenaline, my neighbor's too cute chiwawa ran off at 8 oçlock, scared of the fire works already being fired and we have been spending a couple of hours scouring for the little git, I have been sitting on my knees looking under every car in every street, but there are so many places a little rat like that can hide!
    And as it was very quiet I went out again between 10 and 11, but didn't find it.
    So at two and three we went out to search for it, and while we were talking in front of the door, quarter to 4, the chiwawa came tripping along!
    Finally I could go to bed....

    And I had planned to go to sleep at half past 12, get up at 8, and be the first up at basenotes and start the first SotD of 2012!


    Oh yes, Sotd is Balmain de Balmain, pure perfume.

    Warum, all in red and her new cat learning how to grow vegetables, good morning to you too.

    Leesee, have you had a chance to read what I explained about your decant?

    I had to work last night and came home late, we each got a shot a something tasty, slept like babies. Balmain de Balmain, together with FrouFrou, mine is regular modern EdT but festive anyway. No blackeyed peas here, we will have some baked salmon, pomegranates and spinakopita.

    Good morning. Today is Datura Blanche- nothing at all to do with good intentions, LOL. More dreamy and indolent. But very beautiful.

    Twolf, I am shocked! Shocked! No black-eyed peas? your dinner sounds wonderful though.

    We will have black-eyed peas here, mixed with potatoes, kale or collard greens, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Sort of cook everything separately and mix at the end. This is one of those simple but magical combinations, not just luck and money all in one bowl but exceptionally good tasting.

    About 10 to 12 sprays of N'aimez Que Mois Parfum extrait. A bit too much projection.it's nice that the Caon boutique here has the extract in either dab form or spray form. I used the spray.

    Hello, 2012. I meet you wearing Guerlain Djedi (ZHEH-dee): minerals, sweet earth and smoke-charred roots, one of the most expensive fragrance experiences available, put in my hands by lifetime friend and BNer Brielle. (I should write to her. It's on the list.) Djedi takes me quickly to a comfort place which I otherwise access a little more slowly via Creed Aubepine Acacia.

    Thank you for the e-concert, Jon.
    Leesee, speak Buffy-ease often, please; it's inventively useful.
    FrouFrou, I love your animal-caring heart.
    Larimar, my beverage adviser, the half-marathon event ran out of the true champagne, so daughter and husband brought home bottles of Fre de-alcoholed champagne, which is okay. Am suffering no ill after-effects.

    If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get an idea of that house at all. You have have to say to them: “I saw a house that cost $20,000.” Then they would exclaim: “Oh, what a pretty house that is!”

    Aw…FrouFrou, I’m glad the little guy came back home. My dog hates fireworks, too. She jumps up on the bed with us and trembles.

    We had our black eyed peas. I made a pecan pie, too, that is sooooo sweet it would curl your teeth.

    Rtamara, I love your perfume cabinet! Your hubby is talented, that looks like a lovely painting. And I love Modigliani, too. That is something I’d like to do in 2012, work on a perfume cabinet. But I want to paint or decoupage mine into a perfume shrine…though that will probably wind up looking very tacky.

    Warum, you do indeed have an adorable cat with a sweet face.

    I’m wearing Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise from early this morning.

    Wishing everyone all good things in 2012.

    Oh, goodness, yes. There's only one thing to compare -- sunflower pie. A native-plant botanist friend published a cookbook using plants you can collect from the wild (native and non) and those original to the U.S. Using sunflower seeds with a pecan pie-like recipe produces a teeth-curling pie even denser and fattier than the pecan version, plus the surfaces and spaces between all the sunflower seeds allows for more sugary filling.

    So, you're starting off the year eating sugar? Good for you!

    I have started 2012 with Nirmala by Molinard.
    I applied it at 10.00 a.m. (got up late) and I can still
    smell it now at 20.15. That's good longevity in my book.

    thanks for the nice comments on the photos, I was feeling particularly cozy this morning, and was hoping to get that across to you all...

    I want to join in to welcome Expecting Rain - your name makes me want to have you sample Quand Vient La Pluie (when the rain comes!) Do you enjoy the house of Guerlain?

    Mike, I quite like the Idole - and reapplied midmorning to my initially timid dabs - I am getting incense and rum- it reminds me a bit of Arabie but no where near as sweet, the bottle is elegant, have you seen it?

    lilybelle, I am enjoying the perfume cabinet, it has helped me to consolidate all my fragrances, bottles, samples and decants, in an orderly way, away from sunlight, and gives them a place of honor. thank you for your nice comment about the painting. it has a lot of movement and energy that does not translate in the photo.

    Quarry and lilybelle - I see a pecan pie in my future....thank you for the inspiration

    Wow, sunflower seed pie. That sounds intriguing. Macadamia nut pie. I'm getting ideas here. I imagine pinoli would be good, too. I once made a walnut maple pie similar to pecan pie. That was very good. Yes, starting the new year off on a sugar overdose, but I'm not planning to continue. It's just a holiday wrap up and then back on the wagon, starting tomorrow with my 10:00 gym appointment with the trainer. I'm having a cup of peppermint tea now to cut through the sugar.

    rtamara, I made the pecan pie with a can of Steen's Cane Syrup that I brought back with me from Louisiana last month. I'd forgotten about the liquid limitations for carry-on luggage, but after scolding me the security lady let me keep it, shaking her head at me.

    SotA is Annick Goutal Musc Nomade. This was a very nice discovery for me in 2011. I don't know the actual release date.

    Another Welcome for ExpectingRain
    Jon Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture 'Fingal’s Cave' is one of my favorite pieces of music

    Went to bed at 3 am and up at 11:30 am, so I got my full sleep quota, unlike dear heart Frou Frou..What a great neighbor you are to go play "chase the chihuahua" for half the night. Glad the little git showed up safe and sound.

    Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail is my choice today. It's a warm sunny clear day in CA. We've had heavy fog for a few days which has burned off to a lovely start of a new year.

    I have a confession- I do not ever recall eating black eyed peas in my lifetime. Must rectify. Robin in FL 's description sounds delish!
    Enjoy what is left of the weekend, all! I am already getting uptight about returning to work tomorrow after 10 glorious days off.....I know, I know, I'm lucky I have a job etc....

    Welcome to BN, ExpectingRain!

    Quarry, I am glad you appreciated the Buffy-speak. I'll try to remember to oblige when possible.

    Twolf, I just read your explanation on the old thread. To paraphrase what you said, I have to agree -- what a wonderful example of how BN spreads the love. This is a great place to be!

    I ended up wearing Reminiscence Arabesque last night, which I can still smell it as I type this. It is a tenacious little devil, so I guess it qualifies as today's scent as well.

    I will be eating some beans and greens today along with chipotle-spiced vegan sausages and baked yams. I hope everyone is doing well, dining well, and enjoying themselves.

    Happy New Year, and take care, all.

    Happy 2012, Fragrant Friends! I am wearing my scent locket with Nahema from last night. What a great way to enjoy scent for a long time. What an uninterrupted experience. What a joy of a fragrance.

    Welcome, ExpectingRain and PrincessCaro!

    What a nice thing to say about the 2012, Wolfie. I love your thoughtfulness. Always did, always will.
    New cat loves the vegetables! (just kidding). The book on vegetables was a present to Mr.W, a BIG gardener.

    Quarry, this cat doesn't seem to love food the way his pal, our older kitty Yascha, does. He leaves his canned food after eating a little, but he's a runner, a chaser and a very playful bandit. Hence the name.

    Thanks! He is a sweetie. And our kitty needed a companion after having lost his little friend in April of 2011. Now they are chasing each other around the house and meowing loudly

    I loved it too, and your samples card too! Did you make any New year resolutions concerning samples? Last year I got a CD/DVD cabinet which I use as a perfume cabinet and I am loving it.

    So lovely!

    Tabac Blond parfum

    A relatively generic and tedious amber. Not bad if you don't know any better, but that could be said about hundreds of them.

    Oh, what a great start to the New Year this thread has been!

    I ate black eyed peas cooked with a leftover ham bone from Christmas dinner. And cornbread (a southern tradition). Yum.

    And it all tasted great with Chanel Coromandel, to start off the new year with an old favorite.

    Happy New Year to all my BNers. A lovely group to share the new year with.

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."

    Hedonist, I have just re-read your post: 10-12 spays of Caron in a perfume concentration? Wow, now I guess you are not going to take a bath until 2013, you are all set smelling nice and not dandy. Good, excellent choice though. Does Mrs.H. like it at all? Get some for her while you can, I heard (well, never mind what I have heard).....

    Happy New Year!!

    A warm welcome to Expecting Rain.

    I had a headache today, so no perfume for me. I think I just don't want to go back to work tomorrow. I hear you knit at nite...we are even sharing similar weather. After several days of fog, today it was gorgeous and warm. It was 70 degrees around 11:00am.
