    Default SOTD Wednesday 13th March 2013

    O.k here's the thing: I have a day off and should be
    concentrating on catching up with the household chores,
    but I haven't got dressed yet and can't seem to drag myself away from
    my laptop!!

    It's cold but sunny outside, so after posting this I shall try to go for
    a walk and then come back refreshed and ready for the housework (which
    I loathe, by the way.)

    My SOTD is Youth Dew Amber Nude.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    The big snow tonight and tomorrow could miss us they say... THAT would be a real pity! *grin*
    Rose de Nuit today.

    Morning Kewart, Larimar, All,

    Plenty of No.5 today (soap + 80s Edp). Incidentally, are the Brad Pitt ads for this still running ? I don't have a telly so I'm rather out of the loop, but I don't recall seeing the posters about recently.

    Happy Hump-Day, everyone.

    Well, G., I felt they are rather more widespread here now than initially. They opened a new Chanel Exclusives Espaces in Vienna (apart from the boutique) and they have a huge Brad Pitt add hanging there. They also have these cool ceramic sticks to smell of the respective perfume. Are you working on the hair length yet? RRRR, G! ^^

    ^ Ah, thanks L. I was worried for a minute that Mr.Pitt might have been dropped by Chanel and was now impoverished, living in a tiny, cold flat somewhere. Phew !

    Many Birthdays today -- tigrushka, VJ (maisonstinky who single-handedly put the house of Montale on BN radar), teflondog, others. Many fragrant returns to you, guys. Albert Einstein too?

    Yeah, we read about snow-chocked European capitals and the inability of most cities to cope with it. Here we had a bad accident several miles away so the utility trucks were humming most of the evening.

    Still rosey in mood. Serious grown-up roses for me today -- Sinan by Jean Marc Sinan.

    Great day to everyone, no matter what life sends your way. I will be off from work, will do grocery shopping and then cook BBQ chicken, couscous gratin, and some salad with home-brewed vinaigrette. Dessert will be store-bought, I think along the lines of chocolate ice-cream.

    Kewart, l have days like that too, but hey, life's too short not to indulge yourself sometimes. The housework can wait.

    I keep my Ambre Fétiche mini bottle in the same box where I have L'Art et la Matière samples. The samples have leaked a bit and when I opened the box, I almost wanted to pick something a whole lot sweeter than AF. Ended up choosing it anyway, I have to sparing with the samples...

    Good morning all. In sombre mood today despite the bright conditions. Found out yesterday evening that our retreat on the Isles of Scilly has just gone into liquidation, and a number of long standing friends will be losing their jobs just before the new season begins. Really sad for my sister and BIL too as they were actually married in the hotel. We'll be visiting the islands again for sure, but it will seem strange staying elsewhere.

    Many Happy Returns to tigrushka, teflondog, and maisonstinky (Wolfie, I remember Vijay well, but haven't seen him for quite a while bar one brief reappearance last summer).

    Kewart - well atleast you smell awesome, I love YDAN, it's one of my favorite scents to smell on a woman.
    Happy Anniversary to tdem1961!

    This morning, my A/C broke. Not too bad, since it's very cool in Miami last night/today but it will warm up again soon...so I had to go to Home Depot really early and buy a new unit that my Landlord will reimburse me for (I wear Chergui to Home Depot, in case you were wondering lol). While I was up I got coffee, headed to the fitness center & did 30 mins of cardio & then hauled my new A/C up a flight of stairs, all before my morning shower. Wow, I feel like I've accomplished so much already. (giggle)

    Maisonstinky, yes. Over the years, so many lovely people have passed through the Basenotes archway. Being an agnostic, I don't presume to know the unknowable, but I often imagine a heaven where I might experience a BN Afterlife Meet-up with those too distant on this earthly plain.

    Teardrop, Jon, I enjoyed sharing your welcome to Extra-Great Britain with Mr. Q. It triggered a deep, knowing stare between us. We've watched every episode of "House Hunters International" and "A Place in The Sun," two programs that show people looking for new homes in different parts of Europe mostly, but also Asia and Australia. He's the history buff and birder, I'm the amateur anthropologist, we both try to read the landscape and architecture. But just as we dare think about traveling, the tavernkeep down the road comes over to tell us his well has run dry, and it'll cost $20,000 to drill a new one. Scary. So, we pad our rainy-day fund (or drought-day fund) and hope the future brings unforeseen opportunities.

    Dora, it makes me happy to see you here again. Damn those darn goals getting in the way of fun, huh?

    So, if I have this straight, it's Serge Lutens for Home Depot, Mike? Does the same hold true for Menards and Lowes, or does one have to change houses?

    Chanel Bois des Iles and I have had a little thing going on lately. I ordered a batch of samples last week and added a decant of BdI, so now I'm burning through my long-held sample. I'm 58 years old, I've been on BN 7-1/2 years, and just this year I added Shalimar and BdI to my wardrobe. That's one long learning curve.

Thank you again for all of the lovely birthday wishes. I love you all!

    Shades, I agree with you about Angel Leather. Ultimately, I decided not to buy any precisely because it lacked a sufficient leather punch. Also, so sorry about your Jayhawks. My Wildcat boyfriend was thrilled, however.

    Jon, I'm so sorry about your vacation spot. Are there other places where you enjoy going? Or anything similar that could take its place?

    Oh yes, the islands themselves have a good choice of accommodation, so we should find somewhere when we eventually return without too much difficulty. It was just that this particular place held special family significance. Plenty of other destinations we also love - we are actually flying off to one of them this coming weekend (watch this space !), and still have New Zealand to look forward too later in the year . BTW, still much appreciation for Aleksandr here too AND that birthday bash sounded right up my alley.

    I've had a windfall: Gourmand Coquin, Tonka imperiale and Bois d'armenie have landed in my hot little hands, all advance gifts for our dating, wedding anniversaries, and my birthday! Don't know why as they aren't till May, but I'm not complaining, as I've wanted them for months. Husband probably felt sorry for me, as I've been nursing my samples like they were gold. Weeee! Well, I guess it makes sense, as we will be on holiday during May and I couldn't take the bottles with me. I think I'll save one of them to wear later.

    I've anointed myself in delicious Gourmand Coquin tonight. Yum.

    Ugh. So, been wearing Tuscany Per Donna, from sampling, so decided to get bottle off Ebay. Ugh. Fume is darkened and gone bad. Hard to tell from pics if a fume is still good and some sellers just don't know fumes can go bad I guess. Frustrating! Maybe I should limit Ebay purchases..haven't been pleased lately. The Tuscany has that nail polish rancid-ness to it. Blech.
