    , no, not excema, I am just very dry and alcohol-based Purell we have to wear regularly because of the flu at the care center, eats my skin alive. Same with shades, I am sure. I also wear Udder Balm, it works for me.

    Hermes Rouge. Having a morning off, will go sort my samples. Have to re-try some, others will go in the "to leave" box.

    Yes, Twolf, udder balm is fantastic! Glad you don't have the nasty excema; dry skin is difficult enough. My hands were in water and hand sanitizer all day long when I worked and now that I don't, it seems they still are. I sympathize my dear.

    I'm in Elixir Lumiere Noire today. Hugs to all!

    lucasai - I love that Jo Malone scent. I usually avoid lactonic/milky scents but that one just conveys the smell of warm sweet milk perfectly, doesn't it?
    Happy Birthday southerngardens! - I must agree with TWolf, you've made a nice impression here on Basenotes - a wonderful new addition to this fragrant bunch. Hope to see you around for a while.

    Good morning all! I'm wearing Fico di Amalfi.

    Daughter is sick with a cold. It's just as well she is off from school today. I've got a pot of chicken soup cooking.

    Re: dry hands, I get them too! Cooking, dishes, laundry...I'm always washing my hands. I've used many good creams over the years but will mention one that I bought in September at an area craft fair, which I like enough that I am going to call to re-order a jar now that I am running low. It's a little jar (1/2 ounce I think) but a little goes a long way and it only cost $5. I put it on my hands before bed each night.

    Here is an article about the couple who make and sell the cream, with their phone number:

    http://www.thereminder.com/features/...ardbusinesscr/

    The Honeycomb Hand Cream comes in various scents (I bought Lavender) but these fade fast and soon you just have the lovely beeswax/lanolin scent. Ingredients are simple: Water, Lanolin, Pure Beeswax, Mineral and Fragrant Oils, Sodium Borate.

    Good evening, all, & Happy Birthday Southergardens!

    Lovely pics, Whitefluffy!

    l worked an unusual (for me) shift today - 9 to 5 - & walking to work this morning was beautiful, with the early morning sun shining on the snow. l also got to see a lovely pink sunrise; a nice start to the week!

    SOTD was Eau de Shalimar, SOTE is lmperial Opoponax.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Very cool pictures, Whitefluffy! Thanks so much for posting them.

    Wearing Ava Luxe Madeline this afternoon. I really like this one, which is so strange because when I first got it in 2010, I almost gave it away. It was harsh and wasn't what I expected. I don't know what happened to it in the last 2 years, but now it's amazing. I need to change the rating again, it was a 2 for me initially, now it's a 4, a very nice surprise.

    Hugs for Mike, for Twolf, for anyone who needs one.
    I wish I could cure all the aches you good folks are suffering with right now--
    hands and feet, knees and jaws.
    Whitefluffy, thank you for the photos. They took me to a place I've never been.


    A second sampling of L'Heure de Nuit. I give it a B+. It's more deserving of the name L'Heure Bleue Délicate, as it's a gentle Bleue rather than a nighttime Bleue. Has someone else already said that?

    Neil Morris City Rain today, and yesterday his too, the end of the Woodland Strawberry...I let my kids smell it at the end of the day and they were so impressed, they love that one but only after it's had time to develop on the skin. It really is very nice.

    Nice pictures, Whitefluffy. We went there in 2007, enjoyed the trip very much. And no, I am not the one for camping, I sleep like a Princess on a Pea, so we stayed in a motel. Wonderful fragrances, too.

    I have changed for the evening: as reminded by someone, it is Royalissime by Henri d'Orleans.
