    Ooh, lots of wonderful smelling folks here today!

    30 Roses, I add my voice to the chorus of those who want you to be given a big break, already. Enough with the struggles and bits of bad luck!!!!!

    I'm in Mackie today. Take care, all.

    rtamara, oh my...you are in love, aren't you? When vintage Mitsouko won't even do, it means you're really in trouble. See this is what happens when you test luxury perfumes, eh?
    30 Roses - I hate credit card fraud issues, they stress me out...go buy yourself some fragrance as a gift for having to endure all of that.
    Quarry - your picture made me giggle. I'm **so** glad that you like Granville, I thought that you would but sometimes my favorites are at odds with my BN buddies. Since we have so little cool weather here in Miami I rarely reach for it when it's cold (that's usually when I grab my BIG orientals!) but perhaps next time it's chilly I'll wear it to see how I like it. Personally I wore the heck out of it last Summer, in D.C., just smelling the top of the bottle takes me back to The National Mall, the museums, the sun, vacation...ahh. Nice memories.


    Today for me it's:

    Caron Pour un Homme by Caron



    It was my intention to reach for a manly, chest-pounding, 80's powerhouse fougere this morning (I woke up in one of those moods...) but when I scanned my wardrobe the previous firm resolve sort of softened and I craved a bit of lavender and vanilla without all of the swirling Guerlinade in MdM and Jicky - so CPUH it is. As I have described to another Basenoter before, the scent CPUH is a scent that I imagine I will be wearing well into my old age. It is a scent that I will grow into, it will continue to smell more 'me' the older I get. Sort of like a tree that you plant and watch it grow so you can benefit from the shade it will give you in the future. Nonetheless, at my age (41), I still love it.

    ((hugs all around!)) I'll say one thing, Citibank is on its toes. They do catch fraud early, I have to give them that. But now I'm wondering where the cc skimmer was. At Olive Garden? At BJ's gas station? At the local grocery market? Surely not Walmart? I use that card everywhere. How to avoid a recurrence, short of switching to a cash basis? *scratches head*

    I have a few errands to run and will be doing them wearing FdTRB since I still reek of it from my decanting last night! That huge 1000ml bottle is empty at last (not all used up, just all decanted.) The bottle smells wonderful and now that I don't have to worry about light exposure, I can find a place to display it, where I can uncap it for a smile-inducing sniff now and then. My daughter loves it, too.

    Tonight I'm reaching for Roja Dove's Diaghilev, one of my fantastic additions to my wardrobe in 2011... it is part of a slight chypré craving welling up in me, which usually happens late winter to early summer (that's my favorite chypré season). Sounds as if I were done with winter...
    30Roses, Glad you were lucky! So was I fortunately last year when I was a victim of that huge Lush UK data theft... still, it's distressing!
    Enjoy your evening!

    I am testing a sample on Wolfie's test list so that I can send it her way
    I managed to post some atomizers before going out of town today. Will be back home on Saturday.
    Ah, and in case anyone wondered about the sample, it is Isabey Fleure Nocturne.
    Love to you all!

    Followup: I think I found the source of the problem with the credit card.

    I pulled out all my receipts since we got the new cc at the start of the new year, and called all 6 places where the card was used. One smaller local grocer, it turns out, has been having a number of problems with his scanners and theft of credit and debit cards over the past month. The owner is just beside himself -- he is a victim himself, having seen a 25% reduction in his daily sales as a result of this situation, and despite having his security company checking his store's credit/debit equipment, nothing has been found amiss. Yet he thinks the problem must be occurring at his store, since so many people whose credit/debit info has been stolen in our town have shopping at his store in common. He's working with local police to try to solve the problem and is planning to switch to just taking cash or checks as payment for a while. I will still shop there -- it's convenient and they have very good meat-- but will only use cash.

    Scent free today. Woke up with toothache after a lamb bone incident but had to work this morning due to deadline. Never mind treatment done now, will have to work late to catch up tomorrow. Will treat myself to something soothing at bedtime.

    30 Roses, you're nothing less than a saint- the way you handle stress and strife! That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

    Eleftorea from Bourbon French Perfumery- slathered in lotion,dusted in talc and two drops of perfume to top it all. I'm smelling so sunny that hummingbirds and colored finches are gathering outside my window in attraction.

    naw- the birdies always gather on my winterblooming plants which are planted close to the house- cheap entertainment. I'm simply in a good mood because I took the whole day off work for a Dr Appt. & finished a HUGE project on deadline last night.

    Enjoy the rest of the Tuesday, all.

    I love the birds, too, Knit. We have a pair of cardinals who live in the boxwoods by my window where I sit in the morning. I love to watch them.

    I'm wearing the last of my new (to me) musk samples: Keiko Mecheri Musc. Notes of sandalwood, golden amber, tonka bean, crystal musk. It's a light, delicate, warm, skin-scenty musk, very pleasant this one, and needs to be sprayed more lavishly than I can dab from my little sample. This one and Mure et Musc were my two favorites of my samples.

    30Roses, glad to hear you have figured out the credit card problem. That must be maddening!

    Chanel Cuir de Russie tonight. Far, far too beautiful for my rather dull evening, but I'll smell wonderful when I go to bed

    Bourbon French Musk oil. A softly sweet and vanillic scent, not as "musky" as I'd hoped, but I enjoy its coziness. I'm still enjoying the scents I brought back from NOLA. Plenty there to keep me busy well into 2012.
