    Enjoy your opera tonight, G.! Do they recognize you sitting in the dark in your box from the Cuir Mauresque smell alone?

    Jicky pour moi.

    Best to all

    I love Brut. I'll admit it.

    Hi, everyone! Never had a chance to post yesterday, had family over for my daughter's birthday. She's 25 now. How on earth did THAT happen?! I wore Ted Lapidus Silk Way, a subtle, soft, delicious floral-oriental.

    - Me too! It's what my husband used to wear when we first met and started dating back in HS.

    SOTD is Comme des Garçons Eau de Parfum. This is the original parfum, launched in 1994, a bracing blend of smoky incense, woods, Tiger Balm-like spices. The honey and rose float in and out, but take a back seat in this potent brew. "Works like a medicine, behaves like a drug." HOO-ah! (-:

    Notes include labdanum, styrax, cedarwood, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, honey, rose, cloves, nutmeg, incense, sandalwood

    Wish you all a good start to your week!

    It's pretty gloomy outside, so my scent of the afternoon will have to be something to counteract the dreariness.

    I've been so busy these last two months. It's been RSV and flu season in my neck of the planet. And so I was so shocked to see a package in my mailbox last Friday. It was from Dominique Dubrana, Profumo of La Via del Profumo. In it was his Oud Caravan project.

    I need a place to document what I'm trying today. And that's why I posting here on SoTD, so I can remember what I've tried when. Today, I'm on Oud Caravan No. 2.

    I think the decision has already been made to go with No. 3, but I'm trying them in sequence anyway.

    Very dungy. I smell the oud a bit. Not like Black Oud, but oudy.

    I remarked on the group forums that No. 1 made me think of a guy I met on a plane trip. He told me I reminded him of his sister, who also traveled alone. She had gone to China to ride the Spice Trail, and she spent 3 months out there riding camels. When she came back home to Hong Kong her black hair was bleached red, and he hardly recognized her.

    Both No. 1 and No. 2 remind me of this woman. And I never even met her.

    Good morning!

    It's beautiful this morning, bright and sunny. The kind that makes all the new snow sparkle. We only received a couple of inches, so we fared pretty well through the snow storms this weekend, others weren't as lucky.

    Sampling Diptyque Philosykos this morning, with notes of fig tree leaves, wood and cedar. Very realistic fig note. Excellent! Makes me think of summer, for some reason. Wish it lasted a little longer, but I like it.




    Wishing you all a very happy Monday!!

    Good morning!

    I'm once again experimenting with White Lilac & Rhubarb (sorry to bore you all! ) and this time I've layered it over Woods of Windsor True Rose. While the combination smells okay, both fragrances lose distinctiveness in this combo, and I won't repeat it.

    My used Highland Lilac bottle is officially up for grabs (free) to anyone in the USA-- first come first served! PM me your address if I don't have it. Edit: Still available!

    I'm off to pick up my mother's meds, can't be delayed, and I hope the ibuprofen I took tides me over. I'm still quite sore in the muscle I pulled.

    Hello, my most special friends. I haven’t caught up on reading posts yet, but Leesee sent a sweet PM of concern, so I must, at minimum, confirm all is well. I kept thinking I’d get back in my BN groove “the day after next,” but …

    Distraction #1: The Kindle Fire (product name, not combusting event). After polishing off the latest round of work, I got away from the computer. The Kindle allowed me to ravenously consume HGTV.com episodes and check email, but the touchpad does not afford useful typing, so it’s not been conducive to posting.

    Distraction #2: A blueprint. As most of you know, we live in a two-room school with our boomerang daughter. It finally occurred to me how, with some upheaval, we could configure one classroom to become a separate apartment for her. I developed a blueprint, presented it to DH, DD and her BF, telling her she has a year to think about the offer. In that time, her BF will be done with school, and they can finally pick a direction in life.

    Distraction #3: An article promoting my video. Wild Ones Journal requested I write an article about Landscaping: Pride, Science, and Law. It takes me days to get a paragraph just right, so that sucked up the tick-tock.

    On the subject of perfume ...

    I learned that when I don’t make a point of posting SotD, I don’t desire applying perfume until afternoon. Interesting. I also enjoyed catching my husband’s fragrance on the wind more often when I was sans scent. Among the scents generously contributed by Hillaire, Cacio and lilkcceleb for the big cats project, I discovered an attraction for PdN Cologne Sologne (that's due to Cacio wisdom). It has surprising lasting power for a 4711- or neroli-type cologne.

    No SotD yet. Have to shower, do laundry, and commence a boodle of ebay sales (childhood toys) in order to keep clearing out the other classroom. So it goes!

    ^^^Both of these posts made me smile.^^^

    Quarry, thank you so much for stopping by to say hello. We really miss you but totally understand that sometimes life has other plans for us than whiling away the hours on Basenotes (!!).

    I have a new kindle fire too, and I agree it isn’t conducive to typing text, but so much fun otherwise, eh?

    I also find I can go all day until later in the afternoon sans fragrance if I don’t stop by SotD first. It is a nice change sometimes to enjoy catching whiffs of others’ fragrances and the natural scents around us, rather than our own perfume day in and day out. A couple of years ago (I think), Divatologist posted about her fragrance free day and how hyper-aware she was of all of the environmental scents around her.

    I haven’t selected a SotD yet. I’m still trying to get myself over to the gym. I feel pulled in several fragrance directions mentally – two or three fragrances in disparate genres are calling my name - but when it comes time to choose I usually let impulse rule.

    I hope everyone is having a good Monday. I don’t want anyone to throw rotten tomatoes at me, but I LIKE Mondays.

    Ooh, I love the music above all else. It is on at Covent Garden (Royal Opera House), and is a revival of an '08 production from the Salzburg festival. Not to be an opera bore, but I'm happy to know that the setting has been updated from a forest & castle affair to the seedy backstreets of somewhere-or-other. Honestly, as much as I love my opera and ballet, I do get tired of forest glade sets. We'll see...

    Lovely to see you back, Q!

    I am in 3 Fleurs from Parfum d'Empire. This one somehow does not fit the theme of the PdE collection, but it is lovely, as long as it is applied with a very light hand.

    Congrats Wolfie - by eerie coincidence your post count is also hovering perilously close to 7777.

    Wow! Well deserved congratulations to a venerable Basenotes Stateswoman! Jon, well spotted.

    Go Wolfie. Make it 7777. That has to be good Karma!

    Went for familiar and comfortable, vintage Weil Antilope. I think this is a frequent monday frag for me.

    Mom fell. She's okay, but this was preventable.

    Mom started group exercise class 2 weeks ago by recommendation of her PT when she was discharged from formal physical therapy, to build strength. balance etc.

    Today at class she missed her chair and sat on the floor. She would not have fallen if she had reached back for the chair before sitting. She's been taught the safe way to sit, of course, and we keep reminding her-- I remind her every single time she has to sit, when I am with her, and so does the caregiver-- but she can't retain it. At class, there was no one to remind her.

    I have a feeling it's just a matter of time until she refractures.

    We are in the process of trying to see if she can ever be safe on her own again, and this was a major setback.

    Dear, dear me. How I adore each of you. ((((((Hugs, 30Roses)))))))

    Nifty events just keep unfolding faster than I can process. Just since this morning I learned two things worth reporting:

    Someone I swapped with at MakeUpAlley just told me she can be seen in an upcoming episode of HGTV's House Hunters. Now I understand why she was extraordinarily generous in her swap -- she was preparing to move.
    House Hunters episode HNT-5803H
    Scheduled to air March 5 (it should eventually be available online at HGTV.com)
    Doug and Marion are ready to trade life on their 1,300 acre ranch in Wyoming for the hip, college town of Bozeman, Montana. But even with a budget of 1 million dollars, finding a place that's both good for horses and has tons of character isn't easy. Making it even trickier, this couple needs two separate master suites, since Marion suffers from bouts of shrieking night terrors.

    ... AND [this gives me both goosebumps and sweats] ...

    Olivia Bransbourg, publisher of ICONOfly magazine and creator of Attache-Moi (perfumers Christine Nagel and Benoist Lapouza) just sent me a link to an interview wherein she mentions little old Quarry. I'll post the video in a separate thread.

    SotD recently applied: Attache-Moi!

    I'm getting nothing done today. Isn't it great?

    Gandhajala, hope you have a lovely night at the opera! We saw Albert Herring a few days ago, and let’s just say I think I would have enjoyed a modern staging of Rusalka much better! Lol…

    Larimar, I hope this week sees you feeling much better!

    Congrats Twolf! Wow, 7 years… impressive!

    Quarry, I can’t wait to look at your landscaping videos!!! I will keep that up in a tab as motivation (bribe to myself) to keep me going until my next study break! Lol

    30 Roses, So sorry to hear of your mom’s fall and problems. That is so stressful. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to care for someone with dementia and failing health, so please make sure to rest and be kind to yourself too! (((Hugs)))

    Wearing vintage Champagne by YSL in a vain attempt to add some fun to my day…

    Hope everyone has a great Monday!

    Hello again -

    I'm now in Agent Provocateur Strip. Y'all have a nice evening!





    Happy Anniversary, Wolfie!

    ((30 Roses)) - hugs to you and your mom.

    Wow, it's a tough day out there for everyone - I thought it was just me. I am on medication (antibiotics) and they are making me nauseous and I'm constantly running to the bathroom. Ugh! My infection is going away but the stomach trouble is just the worst. I have never had a sensitive stomach, but now that' I've been experiencing this for several days now, I realize why people who suffer from stomach problems complain so much. Gosh, poor Ray, I'm acting like such a baby tonight. Tonight I had to miss going to the Radiohead concert (they open up the N. American tour in Miami and I'm missing it!!!) and tomorrow is Ray and mine's 14th year Anniversary and all I can think about is how wonderful it would be to eat something else besides white rice and seltzer water. (burp)

    30 roses - give your momma a hug from me
    Quarry, I know what you mean with the mobile devices vs. the PC's...you can't have your cake & eat it too. Oh well...I'm glad you're doing well and now I definitely want to smell that Attache Moi sample you gifted me. Hugs.
    Larimar - you're not the only one in a dirty lavender mood today, I was awash in Mouchoir de Monsieur it seemed like the only scent I could tolerate with this stomach thing. I know that sounds weird, right? But it's true.
    Aiona - how cool that you got to sample those, I hadn't heard of those scents until now. Excited to hear more about them.
    Ms. Wolf - Happy 7! BN is a better place because you are here...I always look forward to reading your posts.

    Oh yeah, my SOTD...

    Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlain



    Captain Le Mouchoir de Monsieur (the BN member, not the fragrance) would be proud of me, I simply doused myself with this, today, probably 20-30 sprays. I still can smell it, clearly, at 7pm this evening.

    Mike, take a good probiotic (you can get them at Whole Foods) alternating with the antibiotic. (((hugs))) to you, too, honey.

    I'm wearing AG Gardenia Passion this evening. I've had this so long it is an old friend and comfort scent now.
