Happy Halloween everyone,
Its my favorite holiday but this year i dont get to dress up or go to a party as i am working :-(
Anyhoo, It is absolutely baltic up here this morning. I am finding it a little challenging to type as i would normally because my fingers are quite tight.
My SOTD to lift my spirits is: Creed - Aventus
I hope everyone has a good Halloween and my thoughts are still with my fragrant friends and their families over in the US - stay safe!

My heart goes out to those who have been been affected by Sandy; stay safe.
Wearing Voleur de Roses for All-Hallows'-Eve - in sync with my daugther who will be going to a party later dressed as an undertaker in tail coat, Edwardian top hat and stiletto heels

Happy Halloween! I have the orange BN skin on all the time...finally that jack'o lantern in the upper left is right. I have loads of candy to give out to the neighborhood kids. Mr. Belle is a pirate and I'm a witch. I think I'll wear something candy smelling, but I haven't decided what yet. I may change my mind at the last minute. Hello, Lucasai! Love to everybody.
I hope that all of our friends on the East Coast are safe and well.
Etro Patchouli. I love this, and it seems quite apt for Halloween. I might join our Ladymurasaki in Voleur de Roses later, a romantic gothic vampires and Wuthering Heights fragrance. Good choice L, and what a wonderful picture of the kitty in the top hat!
Hello all and Happy Samain.

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

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

My daughter went to high school dressed up as a "panda angel". (I know, right?) It was rather cute actually.

Happy Halloween to all. It's my favorite holiday too, but over here in England they don't seem too bothered!
Tubereuse Criminelle is my SOTD.
I seem to have a pattern of choosing one fragrance over all others for three month intervals. Past heavy rotation 'fumes have included vintage Weil Antilope, Oscar de la Renta Volupté, and Myrurgia Maderas de Oriente (truth be told, if money were no object, I'd go for three months for daily Sarrasins). So, Mauboussin has emerged as this autumn's go-to fragrance. It took me a while to tune into all its notes, and now I'm liking how the spice and woods are cooled by an anise note.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Spent the day in Jicky Extrait and I think I may just refresh it. Honestly, a rotation of 3-5 fragrances would do me at the moment! It's a somewhat satisfying state, too.
Best wishes, in particular to the East Coasters!
Off to run errands, wearing WoW True Rose.
Think it's gotta be Chocolovers. It's candy day. Haha and on candy day, of all things, I've got to go to the dentist. I may have to make a joke. I wonder if they actually give out candy at the dentist's office today. Probably, they want to make more money! It very well make me deter from candy, at least for today! lol. Ugh. Good to see ya jujy!
I actually don't care for Halloween much(except for the candy but again the dentist probably will deter me from it, lol). I much prefer Christmas(except the lame commercialism and crazy shoppers). And I like the 4th of July, lots of bbq goin on.

Hello all, hope everybody is OK among our East Coast BNoters.
La Traversée du Bosphore for me today, wonderfully rich and sweet in this grey and cold day.
"Your fragrance with a fume of iodine" L. Cohen
Black Cashmere by DK for me today.
Boo! I'm in Ghost today, from a sample kindly provided by Whitefluffy. Overly sweet for me but couldn't resist today. Have a great day, gang!
The nose wants what it wants!
Boucheron for me today.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
And to everyone else - I have two spots left for HdP Tuberose mini pass. Please join us it will be fun! we already have one tuberose convert so far
Wearing Parfum Sacre today. Loving the pics of black cats, my mom had a black cat for 14 years, named Gomez (after Gomez Addams I think).
SOTD: Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford.
Lol, Whitefluffy! Here I am in one of your old loves and there you are in one of my favorite houses! Coincidences are funny!
More and more, this Ghost is bringing to mind ELdO's Vraie Blonde. The fruits in both are awfully sugary for my nose but they are very realistically apricot/peachy. Very smooth, a flouncy cloud of stone fruits. Will go well with the chocolate I'm about to get into! Folks who like VB would do well to pick up Ghost if they find it.
The nose wants what it wants!
Hi everyone, Happy Halloween!
Love the 2 black cat pics today, so cute!
Wearing Hanae Mori Butterfly this afternoon, with notes of blackberry,
strawberry, black currant, bilberry, rose, vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood
Wishing you a safe and happy day.
