    Good morning everyone. Today I've kind of started to slightly panic :/.... Need to have packed, cleaned the house after me and handed in the keys in just...4 days. I've started with the packing,but seem to need more cardboardboxes... The ex fetched his stuff on wednesday and thursday...Only now I seem to have "landed" after that. In a way I'm looking forward to move,but at the same time not. Sotd is Shalimar.Hope you all have a great start of the week.

    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..."

    SOTD is Sous le Vent, a beautiful, bracing palate cleanser after a bender of heavy rich orientals and gourmands.
    Notes include basil, bergamot, lavender, tarragon, carnation, oakmoss, iris, woods, patchouli

    Happy birthday to Mikeperez

    Belated happy birthday to Evangeline's Tony! Hope it was a great one! The men in this family like to celebrate their birthday week; he could follow their lead and keep right on celebrating! Maybe E. would rather I didn't tell him that, though!

    Thanks PerfumedLady, and I'll be sure to pass along that suggestion, lol! I love Eau de Charlotte btw, but I always seem to save it for warmer weather - I'll have to buck that trend and give it a go sometime sooner than later.

    Have a very happy birthday, Mike! I hope your day is filled with love, laughter and beautiful perfume!

    E., your image is stunning, so is the way you smell. Easyfish, another breathtaking beauty from VC&A!

    kbe, really? LOL

    In Guerlain, Mike P's Guerlain (there are E's Guerlains -- L'Instant and Iris Ganache, there's L's Guerlain -- Sous le Vent, there is even Q's Guerlain -- With Love, among many), I am in Perez' Guerlain. Anyone, care to guess which one?

    Thanks Wolfie - I completely agree. She's just devastatingly gorgeous! And for Mike's Guerlain I'd guess Shalimar, but you don't wear Shalimar ...or do you?

    He woudl say "his" Guerlain is Mitsouko, but in my mind it is an entirely different and gentler animal. Not Shalimar.

    I am scented by English Fern today, after a long hiatus. Previous experience shows that my fragrance preferences don't return to semi-normal until 4 months post-partum, but I thought I'd chance it anyway!

    I am glad to know Aiona Jr. #2 shares a birthday month with an esteemed Basenotes member!

    BIRTHDAY BEAR HUG,
    MIKEY!

    I am in Bond No. 9 Mothers, and I am in limbo. Driveway crew was supposed to be here this a.m.; they've been delayed. Magazine out on proof. Newsletter out on proof. Any or all of these things may jump up and require my participation in the next minute ... or, I may sit here all day building up a fear that they'll all erupt at once later. Deep breaths.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Hello, Aiona, congratulations to you on your new baby, Sam!

    Thank you Jon Rodgers, easyfish, 30 Roses, tdem1961, Larimar, Perfumed Lady, Evangeline, ivanita, Aiona, Quarry & ExtremeK for the kind birthday wishes.

    Larimar - I am in my birthday gift, I cracked open the string & wax seal this morning, decanted it into an atomizer and sprayed it on after a shower with the Shower Gel and a liberal application of the Body Cream:

    Shalimar (1960's vintage Parfum) by Guerlain



    Later this afternoon I had a FAN-tastic massage, wore:

    Jicky vintage Parfum de Toilette by Guerlain



    TWolf - is it Philtre d'Amour?
    Aiona - ADORABLE baby. Give him a kiss on his softly scented head, from me.

    Tonight it will be more Shalimar extrait. I like to, ever so often, really douse myself with the parfum especially the vintage. It can be a mind-bending experience. In a good way.

    Happy birthday, Mike-in-Miami, and very happy birthday to baby Aiona!

    Today was Reglisse Noire for me. Seem to have survived Thanksgiving intact, the scale reads the same though I feel I ate enough to feed a small town, calories-wise anyway.

    Spent all day yesterday shopping for new phones and plan for the family, finally it is done. Well done as far as decisions anyway, phones are ordered but plans not yet, waiting for phone delivery to make absolutely sure all need "regular" sim cards first.
