    Sensuous Estee Lauder.

    Everything stopped in May 2013 I guess...interesting. Things will be imported in, I am assuming. And I am at 4,000 posts, now it says I have 2,700. Hopefully, my milestone will come back, LOL.

    Hugs to everyone!

    It is a bit like a ghost town now, and we'll be adding stuff bit-by-bit, so eventually all will be as it should be.

    Oh I know, things take time. Actually, it doesn't matter to me if my posts come back, LOL...as it will just show that I don't spend as much time on Basenotes than I actually do. LOL. Thanks a lot!!!!

    Hi!

    I am jumping for joy - I can once again edit fonts, add pictures, etc, without manually editing the html!! My work computer hated the Huddler platform and I had to add everything manually. (I added a bookmark to my favorites bar on my work computer with a link to an ehow article entitled "How to insert an image with HTML" - HA - so happy i can delete that!)

    Today's SOTE: Huitieme Art - Naiviris. Got a big burst of carrot up front and was basking in iris glory. After 90 minutes, I was sitting in a stuffy cloying cloud of irissy pixie stick yuckiness. Enter my travel decant of Infusion d'Iris, which is sort of like my traveling first aid kit for boo boos of the olfactory sort.

    edit: hehe, kalli, I have 25 posts! I joined just before the conversion to new site.

    l am ridiculously happy to have the old site back, & even happier to see dear Mimi! Hope all is well with you, sweetheart.

    Let's trust that all the missing post counts, etc will be restored in due course.

    Wore Eau de Shalimar for work today, this evening it's Ginger by Gorilla Perfumes, as it's suddenly turned much colder here.

    Honestly, I'm just happy to be back -- I don't care about site stuff as long as I can talk to you all again. I missed you guys!! The deal I was working on essentially took over my life for the last 3 weeks, but it's done now, and I'm taking 3 much-needed days off to re-group before the big end-of-year push.

    I had planned to use some of my time off to catch up on old posts, but I only got a few days'-worth reviewed before the move. So I'll say a belated Happy 35th Anniversary to the Kiliwias, a belated Happy Birthday to Roberto, a big HUZZAH and hugs for ErinK and sweet Rocky (I got a huge kick out of the cone-of-shame-as-martini-glass costume), and hugs, well-wishes, and healing thoughts for all who need(ed) them. Elizrj, I hope you decided to go all diva and dramatic with your boudoir make-over. And if you haven't posted photos yet, please do.

    I do hope there's some way to catch up on the Chicago meet-up I missed. I am so NOT missing the next one.

    I've been comforting myself with gourmands and orientals the last few weeks, including Un Bois Vanille, Frapin 1270, Fumerie Turque, Coze, and my ever-present fall/winter staple, Mazzolari Lei. Today, though, it's Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere. I've worn the hell out of Cadjmere this fall, and I just love it.

    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..."

    Welcome back, scent twin!!! You have smelled great these past several weeks if that is your llist!!! LOVE all of them, except never smelled Fumerie Turque.

    I'm still trying to plow through and finish off some previously worn samples this month, Ormande Jayne Orris Noir today, one which I never particularily cared for, and still don't.

    what she said ^ except scented with L'Heure Bleue
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."
