    Been in Chergui today, feeling I now have a wardrobe more suited to a Basenoter! Lol

    Will wear A La Nuit a kind gift from Gandhajala from the rehoming thread. It's our 26th wedding anniversay and Mr Ali does like a big white floral

    Back home tomorrow - been incredibly lucky with the weather (Jenny spoke to her mother just now and they were having thunder and hail back home).


    G, this obliging soul decided to pose nicely for us by the entrance to Tresco Gardens this morning -





    Pity to be heading back to reality but we still have the weekend to recover and we will be back tomorrow well in time to join Larimar for nibbles and vino


    SotE is Cuir Mauresque.

    Yaaaaaaaargh! Haven't been able to get in to see you all day!!

    The SOTD thread yesterday was a particularly good one. Those incredible flowers!! I haven't read todays yet. I was just so relieved to get in. Really, life is too short to wait......and wait......

    So SOTE is FM Iris Poudre. The last dribble from a sample. I think I would like to have this one.

    Hello! Today I am sampling Gucci Rush, layered with Molinard Patchouli. Idunno. I was groggy and in a hurry this morning, so I'll be sniffing and applying the samples I have in my purse. For scenting and amusement. An "off' day. LOL

    Hope all are well!
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Danny / Mims - the Routemasters even reached New Zealand too. I took the first pic near Queenstown and the second on the outskirts of Christchurch (before the earthquake !).

    SotD is YSL In Love Again which has quickly become a favorite of mine. It's almost a cross between L'Ombre Dans L'Eau and Rose Ikebana.

    30 Roses, I love that YSL/Jean Claude Ellena creation too...I don't know why I don't own a FB.
    Gandhajala - ooh you Londoners have the best performing arts scene...hope you enjoyed the show.
    Larimar - that is one MPG I do not like. Opoponax and I are not friends, it seems.


    I am in carnations today. This morning was:

    L'Air du Temps (vintage EdT) by Nina Ricci



    This afternoon it's:

    Jon - great pictures once again.

    Happy Anniversary to Mr & Mrs Alitkye!

    I got some Mor Cosmetics goodies for Easter so I gave the Marshmallow perfume oil a try. I was expecting lots of sweetness but it's quite powdery.....it's very pretty with a lovely rose note.

    Mure Et Musc Extreme today, but I can't smell it, LOL. On the happier side I also could not smell the smoke from the wildfires burning north of us; co-workers were very bothered by it. On the negative side, there are wildfires burning north of us. Ack I do hate having a cold, have been irritable and not easy to get along with, I'm sure.

    Busy icky day. I feel a sick coming on. Sigh.

    So, Wrappings today for me. Comfort.

    Beat, bushed, dogs are barking again. Mr.T is unwell. The weekend looks like a busy one. Oyvey.

    Coriandre, perhaps?

    Interesting thread today!

    Great pictures again, Jon, what a cool bird!

    Kewart, so glad to hear your back is feeling better. Back pain is the worst.

    Gandhajala, I hope you enjoyed the ballet. I've only been to the ballet once, but I loved it.

    Congrats to Bke and Hednic on their milestones!

    Twolf, I hope Mr. T feels better soon, I'm sure with a little tlc from you he'll be fine.

    SotE is Oscar de la Renta Live in Love.

    Happy belated Birthday to RainDropSparkle!! I am sorry I missed your day. I hope it was indeed happy and memorable.

    ((kewart)) I hope you feel better

    Happy annyversary Alytyke!

    Congratulations to kbe, 15000 posts is quite a milestone. I just noticed hednic has 21000 (!!!!). I am glad you are here at Basenotes.

    Today I wore Idylle Duet (not the new one: Duet Lilas, or whatever it is called )
    My 1950s Ode by Guerlain EdC showed up today. Unfortunately I broke the neck of the bottle trying to open it. Desperately looking for the thread on how to open vintage bottles, oh well. It smells delicious.
