    Default SOTD Saturday, 2nd February, 2015.

    Welcome back Basenotes! So sorry you have been poorly -
    I did notice things were getting harder to post and there were
    lots of double posts! Hopefully all is sorted now and "Thank -you"
    to those clever doctors.

    Anyway, I shall wear Chamade after breakfast (full English, of course.)

    Sampling Amouage Jubilation for woman. Not my cup of tea at all. Phew, now I only need 4 full bottles of Amouage. (or 5 if my husband has his way: he loves Honour whilst I love Lyric, Memoir, Epic and Interlude!)

    Good Morning Basenoters ! I'm giddily posting today using my brand new "Phablet" device. I'm giddy because, prior to purchasing said phone/tablet, I had been using a smart phone on which the internet service was constantly much like poor Basenotes was in the last few days (yes, I'm talking about my bl..kb..ry!!). Anyway, SotD is Violetta (Penhaligon).

    Good afternoon,
    Started the day early in vintage L'Heure Bleue EdP in order to make piles and piles of Austrian Nusskipferl (buttery yeast dough with hazelnut/ walnut stuffing and, needless to say when it comes to a Larimar recipe, I dumped almost a bottle of Cognac in it.). I'm lying now near the glazed tiles oven groaning like a beached whale... diagnosis: Overeaten! A spritz of Ubar to capture the mood.
    Best to all

    Between Kewart's full English breakfast and Larimar's Nusskipferl I am drooling like a fool.

    Current Issue
    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..."

    Congratulations on the new toy, Pomander. Isn't technology wonderful? A benefit of living in the year 2015, right, Kewart? ("We kid because we love," as we say around our house.)

    No Full American here, just a cup of tea and a drop of Mauboussin between the wrists, from a sample. I'm going to make some Jambalaya later in honor of Superbowl NOLA. It has turned coooold! But the sun is shining and that is always a blessing. Love to everybody. xo

    Good Evening,

    Larimar - those Nusskipferl sound amazing. I bet they taste amazing, too ! We need a recipe thread here on BN.
    Whitefluffy - coild you lean a little closer to the screen so I can sniff you better ? Mmmmm.

    Vintage Chergui (bell jar). The bell jar is only 1/3 full and the jus s turning dark green. Now folks, what s that going to tell us? I have my own theory ( and there are plenty of threads here ). I will post it at one point, but currently I am in the process of getting a genuine green vintage Chergui. So, we'll see and more back-up vintage stuff is always a good plan as far as I am concerned.
    You Jicky folks smell divine! ^^

    SoCal, we haven't crossed paths in recent days, but I remember likable things about you. Now that I see you're attitudinal avatar, I like you even more. Ain't it grand to be of a certain age?

    Wooo, decluttering, debulking (as we say her), or depossessing (as Lilybelle puts it). Visceral pleasure.

    Isn't it one of the great enjoyments of this hobby that we can get different experiences from the same fragrances and still celebrate our differing pleasures? There's nothing equivalent to the rewards of perfume.
