Congrats on the new home, Foustie!
((Hugs)) to Mike.
Wearing Neoatura Cocoon to warm me up.

Adding Mike to the list of recipients ....
SotE - Giorgio for Men.
Mike, you bring out the mother in me. I want to run defense on whatever is scaring you. Take a big, deep breath now. There isn't any change you can't overcome. This too shall pass. Better days are coming. Those aren't just platitudes, honey buns. I'm glad you share whatever feels right, because airing concerns does feel like lessening the burden. Here comes that hug ... SQUISH!!!
It was feeling like spring here this morning -- all sunshine and thaw -- so I applied touches of 5 diff violet frags. I haven't found the "me" violet yet, but gotta love the "nearly me" ones, especially Violette Precieuse and Bois de Violette.
Hi, gang! Ignore those two sample pass theads from me; I wasted my whole morning typing it up and trying to post only to have it post with NO text, twice! Aaargh, BN! Will see if we can get an aldehydic pass going later; for now have asked the mods to clean the whole mess up.
Yes, Foustie, yes to all you said! I do love Dd'R; enjoyed it from my first sampling and I only keep growing fonder! And I like it better than Lipstick Rose, too. Think it would only be an occasional wear for me, too but that's great; means one bottle is all I'll likely ever need. "Ghostly shadows of a glamorous dressing room" is one of the loveliest scent descriptions I've heard. Congratulations on your much-deserved new home, my friend! May it be filled with love, warmth and laughter for many years to come!
No sync today, do not need warming up. We are expected to hit the mid-50's today. I'll take every warm winter day I can get! No.5 EDT for me.
The nose wants what it wants!
Been having issues on BN as well. Bummer when that happens!
Thanks for your understanding, Kalli! We have wonderful mods here on the ladies' side; they have jumped to help me out. And I see they did get my mess cleaned up! Will try again later, there will be an aldehydic sample pass, folks! Thank you mods, for all your help!
The nose wants what it wants!
I should have checked out the SOTD threads sooner. There's so much information (though it increased my To Test list, which I'm trying to whittle down...)
Synched in SL Musk Koublai Khan. I still can't believe this one is such a pussycat on my skin. So warm, like a lion lying in the sun
A Mike style bear hug for Mike from Larimar today!!!! Be gentle with yourself!
Jardin du Nil (old bottle design) tonight. Still my favorite Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier fragrance. And the good news the current jus in Paris smelled just the same to me.
Wine o'clock after Thai style dinner (soup with Greenland shrimps, lemongrass, coconut milk). Chef Larimar deserves a glass or two!
Best to all
Evening all. Un Bois Vanille today a lucky synch. Hugs to Mike, Twolf and Kalli.
Health and Happiness in your new home Foustie
Foustie, congratulations and much happiness in your new home. I know how exciting that is. May you have loads of fun making it yours. And if there's some Foustie Towers craziness, all the better.
So many wonderful Basenoters in need of positivity, comfort, and support -- karma is running big ol' debits where all of you are concerned. Big, warm hugs to Twolf, Mike, and Lucas. I second Quarry's advice -- take a big, deep breath, believe in yourself, and remember you're loved.
I'm warmed up (and synched up) today in the lovely Serge Lutens Bois Oriental. This one warms me up and calms me almost as well as Tam Dao.
Hugs to anyone else who needs them.
Wearing Kingdom EdP (Alexander McQueen) today.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Congratulations, Foustie, how very exciting!! I wish you much happiness and warmth in your new home.
Biiiiiiiiig, loving hug to you, (((((Mike)))). Please take care and be kind to yourself, and try to remain positive.
Again, just back from the gym, so no scent yet. Wait, I did spritz Guerlain Eau de Cologne du Coq pre-workout.
I will wear Shalimar the rest of the day. I really need to get some of the ancillaries; a Shalimar bathing experience sounds so divine right now!
Cozying up in Black Vetyver Cafe for watching movies.

I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
Congratulations on your new home, Foustie!
A cold and rainy day here,
I was wearing
Guet Apens - Guerlain.
(Twolf) (Mike) (lucas) (anyone else in need). Thinking of you x.
Wearing Anthropologie's Belle de Soir tonight. Love their sales.
Vintage Giorgio for Men
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
Gucci Rush today... I don't think I'm in sync though.
Good evening, good smelling gentlepersons. Hugs and good wishes to TWolf and Mike and anybody else who needs them. Take care of yourselves...
Today in SSS To Dream. Lurvely.
Early up to work, along day, quick dinner, off to do laundry, no rest for the wicked. This perfume certainly holds up to it though. It is such a powerhouse that it's hard to actually apply the right amount; like the Prairie Nymph, I feel sort of like I need insulated gloves to handle it.
I'm in synch today wearing Cinnabar. It's such a warm, spicy, sexy beast!
Foustie, congratulations on the new house! May you be blissfully happy in your new home.
hugs to all, but extra ones for Twolf, Mike, and Lucas ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
