Uncle Serge's Cuir Mauresque.
I owe a couple of people PMs; so far my attempts have been thwarted by the gremlins in the BN system. My apologies.
Have a lovely Tuesday.

Rochas Femme for me today.
Best to all.

Good afternoon. Is Basenotes dying? The problems from the previous server seem to recurred.
Anyway whilst it's working SotD is SL Fleurs d'Oranger perfect floral filth
Today, I haven't decided what to wear yet...waiting for some inspiration.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
EAU DE TOILETTE
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..."

Good morning, everyone -
I'm in Caron Infini, 70s parfum, and a light spray of pdt ...so lushly fresh with glorious aldehydes, hyacinth and narcissus, and smelling particularly radiant at the moment.
Y'all have a great day!
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
Hello all. PG Tonkamando
We smell GREAT, Mike! That's all that matters.
Good morning, good smelling people.
Datura Blanche. I smell good. Assertively. Also a black pencil skirt (in which I look like an actual pencil, with my, um, minimalist curves) and my christmas presents, one for each foot, let's see if the link works...
(ETA)feeling all clean and pretty, a distinct upgrade from last night, when I had not one, but two violently puking children to deal with. They seemed fine this morning and are off to school, it is wierd. They must have both eaten something bad (these 2 go to the same school so lunch seems a likely culprit).

Six (yes six) sprays of hypnotic poison. Can you believe that this will be almost gone in about five hours. Husband will come home and not be able to smell anything on me at all.
They don't call me scentsucker for nothin' folks.
Dior Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir
Nothing yet, but I'm thinking about Shalimar edc. Last night I went to sleep in vintage Emeraude pdt. It's delish, but Chantilly is still my favorite.
Larimar and Mike, you two can sit near me anytime when you're wearing Jicky.
You kids are funny this morning.
Yesterday I wore En Avion, and while the early stages are rough for me, the dry down I reached later was worth the "work." It smells just the way the real world--the wise, mature, beautiful world--should smell. Shouldn't we be evolving toward finer and finer things?
Today it's Van Cleef & Arpels Gardenia Petale, which I was contemplating yesterday. It's pretty, flowery, syrupy, not so green as I might prefer, slightly tuberosey, has good projection, no rough points, very feminine, and it's not cheap-smelling except for its level of sweetness, which in and of itself is not a cheap quality, but I associate yummy sweetness with Bath and Body Works-type products.
It rained and thundered last night. Today it's just like spring. Tomorrow we're expecting 3 inches of snow. Remember when weather used to be boring and predictable?
SotD has been Myrrhiad.
"Your fragrance with a fume of iodine" L. Cohen
Good evening all!
Q you smell gorgeous. Gardenia Petale is one of my favourite gardenias, but yes it is on the sweet & creamy side; no blue cheese or mushrooms in sight.
My SOTD on this wet & windy day was 1000 Kisses by Gorilla Perfumes. For this evening l'm going to pull a sample from freddie's latest goody bag, but l haven't decided which one yet.
"What is this secret connection between the soul, and sea, clouds and perfumes? The soul itself appears to be sea, cloud and perfume..." - from Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis.
I was craving something with richness, so tried The Party In Manhattan... but that wasn't quite it, too aldehydic, and realized I wanted some primal deepness.
Now wearing Musc Koublai Khan - very first chakra, grounding.

Tdem - Love Caravaggio's Bacchus. He was a funny chap ( Caravaggio, not Bacchus, though I suspect the latter is no wallflower ).
Paradeiserl - *in best Dame Edna Everage voice* ' Hello, Possum ' to you, too. Did Barry Humphries make it to German television ?
No Jicky compliments for me, but then, nobody ever comments on my fragrances.
No.19 (70s Extrait ) tonight, courtesy of my personal Chanel fairy.
Best to all.

Good morning, all. Better post while I can...
