    Hello all! Thank you for the lovely birthday wishes!

    I am sorry that I haven't been around as much. I took on a different position at work last year, and while it can be rewarding in its own way, it is also sometimes grueling, stressful, and time-consuming.

    Not sure what the birthday SOTD will be....probably my favorite, Chanel No. 19, but maybe I'll go nuts with Eau de Shalimar.

    I wanted to also add my condolences to the passing of Twolf's friend. (((Twolf)))

    What a wonderful idea!

    Thank you, 30 Roses, you always come through! After I sent her e-mail explaining E-bay policy and that I have no control over funds anymore, she said she will ship it. We will see...She seems to be quite inexperienced, and it's quite annoying, frankly.

    A party in New Orleans sounds veeeery gooood!

    Of course, Jon, I would be absolutely delighted! But as for house trained...I am afraid I will still need to see the official certification

    30 Roses - She shipped the package, woohoo. Thank you for your support!

    This afternoon I switch it up to some vintage Shalimar extrait from the 60's. Breathtakingly beautiful. I Must admit that I thought it would be louder. It's a shame they cheapened it from this. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan of current formulation but wow this one is a stunner.

    Wow, TWolf, please take the best care you can of yourself and your friends family/relatives. ((big BEAR hug))

    Afternoon in more vetiver..

    Vetiver by Annick Goutal



    This one I haven't sampled for AGES. I remember KevinGuyer (we spoke via email a few days ago) sending me a sample my first few months as a Basenoter. It's still as harsh as I remember. In a good way. Perhaps the only other vetiver, besides Vetiver Exercise No. 1 by Les Nez, that is so watery, iodine-prominent and aqueous. Love it.

    Yes, a BN meet up during French Quarter Festival sounds like just what we need! Count me in.

    It's been snowing for the last few hours, it's suppose to continue for the next 4 days. Going to New Orleans sounds pretty good right about now.

    Wearing Mitsouko this evening.



    Have a nice evening, everyone!

    Oh, good Whitefluffy! Sounds like she just needed a nudge to do the correct thing -- but one can understand why sellers don't like shipping until the money is in their account. Some who are struggling financially need the money to pay for shipping.

    I've been checking on Mom by phone throughout the day. The swelling is reduced and the apartment is cooler. Crisis averted for now.

    Today I layered Eau de Shalimar and Shalimar Eau Legere Parfumee. Nice. Turned out subtle. Not a "projection monster" by any means. I actually think the former has more projecting power, while the latter is richer and stays closer to the skin.

    Stay well, y'all.
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Twolf, I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. Sending hugs ...

    I've not felt well all week ... not quite sick enough to stay home from work, but definitely too yucky to wear fragrances. I've logged in most days (trying to help keep the spam at bay!) but haven't kept up with the daily postings. Sincere apologies for any birthday wishes I missed.

    Shades, I hope you are feeling better soon. A really nasty lingering bug made its rounds here, and I hope you haven't caught something similar.

    SOTBirthday was SL A La Nuit, a relatively new purchase, but very pretty. Possibly my favorite jasmine and perfect for Hawaii. Thanks again everyone for your kind wishes and for filling my head with the wonderful thought of having a BN party in New Orleans.
