    After a new year's jog in the park it's Un Jardin Sur le Nil for me: fresh, citrussy and full of good intentions!
    Happy 2012, everybody!

    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.
    www.aafke-art.com

    “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

    Good morning to the world that's a year older, wiser and kinder.

    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.

    Wow it's been a year since i saw you people! Heh heh silly right? Lol Thats what my father in law said to my wife and I as we walked in after having returned from our NYE dinner.

    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.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    this is an old jewelry armoire that was gifted to me recently by a childhood sweetheart who remains a good friend - I am enjoying it immensely. will post some interior pictures sometime.
    The redhead is an image of a Modigliani painting that is part of the Barnes Foundation in Pennsylvania and used to hang in what I affectionately called the "floozy room"
    small oil on paper by hubby, butterfly card from Frou Frou , shell from the ocean... Happy New Year, lovies! I want to get me some black eyed peas!

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."

    Jon, thank you for the music this morning. Your concert sounds amazing, I hope you
    have a wonderful time.

    FrouFrou, what an exasperating way to start the new year. Glad you found the little guy.

    I am wearing First (parfum) but since the weather's hot and I'm about to exercise a bit, I will switch to something fresher later (Cristalle most likely)
    Have a great year!

    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.
    Warum, your kitty looks a lot like ours, which may indicate a big eater.
    Welcome, ExpectingRain.
    Hugs to all.
    . . . . .
    Update: Wonderful art and scenes, rtamara. Maybe they especially speak to me because I have the pleasure of really knowing you. Kisses, dear one.

    Welcome, ExpectingRain - it's nice to meet you!

    Oh, and Geaux Saints!

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I just tried emailing her at her msn.com account, but received a delivery failure notice. Will have to break out the stationery and stamps.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    I'm wearing Quartz by Molyneux to start a beautiful year!
    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!”

    (extract from "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)



    Think about it...
