    Default SotD: Tuesday 1st January 2013.





    Anyone up and about yet ?. Anyone feeling delicate ?. Woke to blue skies here for a change - off for a run to burn off some Xmas calories.


    My first scent of 2013 is PDN Maharadjah.

    Happy 2013 everybody!

    My first fragrance of the year is Cuir Ottoman- well, no, to be technical it has been Myrrhiad

    Anyway, the important thing is being fragrant, isn't it?

    Hello, everyone! Spent New Year's Eve in the home of some lovely, lively, very fun cousins of my husband's. Yours Truly saw in the New Year with a bang -- three shots of Cafe Patron, to be exact, the very first in my 51 years. A great time was had by all.

    Congrats Teardrop on your posting milestone. I like your resolution.

    SOTD is Etro Ambra

    A very happy, fulfilling, and prosperous New Year to you all, dear Basenoters.

    Decision made. A strange choice for a winters day but I wanted simple and cheering so opted for Chanel Eau de Cologne. Really lovely and refreshingly sherbetty after a night of indulgence

    I'm starting the new year with an old friend, Angel. And not just plain Angel, but full assault Angel: body cream, sparkly body powder and a few spritzes of EDP! Why the heck not???!

    So would I be, believe me, but I'm going to work. I don't usually grumble but I've no notion tonight. Have one on me those who can indulge. At least I have my Chergui to keep me feeling good.

    Good Evening,

    Teardrop - Hearty congrats on your posting milestone and anniversary. Great to see you in here, too.
    Poor Foustie having to work tonight. You're right in seeking consolation in the fact that you at least smell fab.
    Larimar is smelling particularly skankalicious.
    tdem - Tequila/coffee shots. Way to go !
    Jon, meanwhile, has twisted my arm to have a wee tipple. Dipped into a bottle of Single Malt that a friend gifted me over the festive period. Well, it'd be rude not to try it, no ?

    Jicky ( extrait ) tonight.

    Best to everyone.

    Pretty peche-ture, LadyM.

    Jon's sparked a mini fantasy for me: Drinking wine with the boys, Jon, Gandhajala, and Larimar.

    Good evening and a very Happy New Year to you all. May 2013 bring less seriousness and much more fun.

    Wine o clock.... I have been a little 'fragile' today shall we say, but maybe some fizzy medicine will cure it.

    As for smellies... haven't yet due to the above, but I think I may try some Damasque, a new brew of many Roses, Indian saffron and mysore sandalwood.

    I started out the New Year in remnants of the ever-elegant Hermes Caleche extrait from last night. For this afternoon, I'll join Alityke in Chanel's Eau de Cologne from a rapidly disappearing decant.
