    Bella cello, celissima, Happy Birthday to you. May the co-workers treat you well, may your fragrances be gentle to you and your family brings only joy this forthcoming year. Many fragrant returns. It is also the birthday of Marlen (remember senteur1, the man who defined my attraction to BN back in 2005?).

    What else? Hermes Hiris, another scorcher here. Please send us some London weather.

    30R., thanks for all the birdsongs yesterday.

    Larimar - I love that FN Lutens ad, how clever. I have been obsessing over a bell jar of that stuff for years...
    TWolf - wow, it's Marlen's birthday, I do remember him fondly and he too was one of the reasons I followed Basenotes for years. I remember his hilarious review of Black Orchid. Happy Birthday to him, wherever he is.

    It's HOT and sweaty here in Miami. And, get this, my car air conditioner is not working - so I'll have to be getting it fixed asap since it's impossible to drive without it.

    Cooling off in:

    Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company



    I wore this, from a decant that a kind Basenoter gifted me, all throughout my summer vacation in Provincetown (Massachusetts) and now wearing it this morning I feel like I have a piece of my vacation with me. Dry, salty, airy - perfect stuff for the heat.

    I'm back in Ava Luxe No. 23 for my birthday scent. I almost went with Bois des Iles, but then thought I'd just stay on track with my "other" sandalwood.

    CELLO!! Happy birthday to a special Basenoter! Many Happy returns and lots of love and hugs. xx

    I hope that all of our under the weather ones feel better soon. Hugs to you too.

    Welcome back Evangeline. Still smellin like Sachmo?

    Mike Sharp, salty, refreshing. It is good isn't it. I also think that you would like the Testa Maura Loriani that I have been playing with today. It is built around a really beautiful Lavender. As Alfarom says, an overlooked line. Just waiting to be discovered IMO!

    L'Eau D'Hiver this pm. Take care all.

    Happy Birthday to Cello!

    I sprayed on A A Flora Nerolia first this morning, but instead of my usual 1 spray, I did 3. I guess I was feeling happy!

    That was a mistake. For whatever reason, it went straight to "poo" on my skin, which it never does. In the air it's great, but on skin, poo. I'll have to try it again another day, and go back to my usual 1 spray!

    Meanwhile I scrubbed most of it off (the remainder is inoffensive) and applied L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger over it for good measure. I have to go grocery shopping and do not want to smell like poo!

    Gladly would I own some of the candles, but the hype at the time was hilarious. Articles ablaze with character studies name-dropping the brand, with something like ~"as a hardworking performer-entrepreneur-humanitarian-professor-fashion designer, I relax by spending time with family, cooking, and ... I couldn't be without my Diptyque candles! I light seventy-seven of them in a simple and grateful gesture three times per day while facing mecca and chanting a personal mantra Richard Gere so kindly paid a peasant to hand-embroider for me on this pashmina yoga mat. I do like to stay centered."

    Scent for the afternoon: Geranium pour Monsieur. Now this is the best Malle I've tried so far, but I keep changing answers on that. Nice to hear NY had a cool morning. Muggy here. I want autumn already!

    Wearing vintage Weil Antilope <3 it's been a rough week so far, hopefully It'll get better, traveling back to Cleveland today for 4 days and a Big Time Rush concert tomorrow night.

    Good evening fragrant ones.

    SotD is a forgotten bottle of EL Tom Ford Amber Nude which has been perfect for a cool, wet day that typifies this summer. An early wearing of a winter favourite

    Oh my word, apologies for the oversight

    Welcome back, Evangeline!

    Feel better, lucasai, gandhajala and ladymurasaki.

    I'm having my own tummy troubles at the moment, but am feeling better than I was yesterday. I am wearing a dab of Aveda body lotion, just to be scented in some way until the nausea is gone for good.

    Take care, all.

    Hey y'all - me again!

    Inspired by Izzie's interest in it, and the fact that it's been over two weeks since I've worn it, as well as the heat (and it's hot, but I'm not complaining!) I'm in Dune, the good old stuff, for the afternoon ...what a masterpiece this is.




    Thanks Leesee, and glad to hear you're feeling better!

    Thanks Foustie! Y'know, now that you mention it, I haven't worn Satchmo (har!) since that day, but I'm not sure if it's been my particular mood, or if the comparison to a dog (however clean and well-mannered, lol) struck some sort of nerve with me. I'm looking forward to wearing my CdR again once the weather cools off a bit, but I think I'll stick to pretty florals around the tiny ballerinas from now on, at any rate.

    I see you're not entirely new around here, but I don't think we've met yet so let me extend my belated welcome, Beauxbatons ...and add that I hope your week gets much better! I saw your screen-name and thought you were surely from my neck of the woods!
