    No need for apologies, sweetie -- I was happy to finally be able to try it. Thank *you* for giving me the opportunity! It would be an altogether different problem if I loved *everything* I tried. I'm going to replace it with the Arquiste L'Etrog -- I'm betting I'll enjoy that one.

    I'm cracking up again at your yams lemming. But now you've got me thinking about roast turkey! And bread pudding! Dammit!

    You guys are making me HUNGRY! And in my neckuthewoods it's lunch time, but I'm about to go to a spinning class instead, and eat after. Want. Food. Now.

    Also, ye olde Basenotes, I'm irked with ya because I just got a PM with PICS and they are not showing up. I tried to login on my iphone to try to see the pics and it won't recognize my login, much less show my PMs.

    I am just a baby today. Off to spin.

    I've got the L'Etrog on now -- and *this* is the kind of light fragrance that I *can* pull off. L'Etrog and the Heeley citrus (Oranges & Lemons Say the Bells of St. Clements) are my favorites of this type.

    Jon, did you enjoy L'Etrog? (Nice seeing you again, btw )

    Oh wow, I came back with so many samples and my purse smells heavenly from all the tester strips. Everytime I get a waft I think of you all Thanks for posting pics Matildaben!

    ErinK, how funny! I need a loan for a car in a month or so, but I would be afraid to see the Kings and Queens of Denial! ;P

    Twolf, I didn't see that you were wearing Epic, I ADORE that one! I guess it's cold enough now to break it out again. One reason to be happy for winter.

    I'm loving these pics from Chicago! Furriner's facial expression in the first photo is cracking me up. What a character! And that sample stash looks like FUN! Not to mention I love that chartreuse crushed velvet chair behind elizrj....

    Elizrj, keep us posted on the guy from the good date! You said he called you right after the date - did y'all make plans to go out again?

    Double post. Sorry
    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..."

    In the morning I had applied Jicky EdP from a bottle of age c. 6. During the day a new bottle arrived. Now I'm wearing Jicky EdP 2013. So far I am satisfied, although the older one may have a bit more structural presence.

    Laptop died this morning so decided that I should get a new one to do all my BN posting in style. One lunch hour and one shiny new MacBook later and this girl is back on line.

    Me too, XScent!! Except mine died yesterday. I have a 4:30 appt to check the final pulse, but I think it will be declared. A shiney new one will be purchased in any event.

    My department is dressing up tomorrow as ancient Egyptians tomorrow to be "Queens & Kings of Denial" (we are credit underwriters). Last night I made a crown, belt, and bracelets out of craft papers and beads. It took my whole evening but was so much fun!

    In my new favorite, Bois des Iles. It took me so long to try this one and now I don't know why I ever waited! It is GLORIOUS.

    Last but not least, welcome back ExtremeK and Mimi!!! We have missed you! ExtremeK, thank you for the sweet thoughts yesterday for me and Rocky. He is nearly all better now and we are once again going on long walks. I think all of your all's thoughts and virtual hugs and happy wishes his way have helped him heal and get back to his wild and crazy self.
    I have nothing terribly important to say here, just singing "told you so, told you so!" regarding your Bois des Iles love

    Hello everyone! It's looking so very retro around here, but it's nice to see you all.

    I'm back in Chanel for ballet ...and barre. Still haven't quit, but I've managed to give a non-response about adding a class. I realize I'm going to have to make a decision and give a definitive answer soon, but I really feel that avoiding it for now is the way to go. I was in '32 this morning, and now I'm in 31 Rue Cambon.

    Y'all have a great day!

    RATS! cello, I was *thisclose* to putting on Un Bois Vanille after my post-workout shower. I'll declare us runner-up-I-totally-intended-to scent twins, anyhow

    Everyone smells wonderful here today, as usual.

    I'm essentially throwing up my hands and admitting that, for autumn and winter fragrances at least, I'm an incurable Serge Lutens and Parfumerie Generale fangirl -- with some Mazzolari thrown in to liven up the joint. I'm in … wait for it … Parfumerie Generale L'Ombre Fauvre.

    PS -- cazaubon, you of course smell fabulous.

    Agree !. I've been fortunate to see them in action during falconry displays - stunning. I may be a bird lover but the best place for pigeons is in a pie as far as I am concerned. The Wood Pigeons that invade our garden are motivated by pure greed, hoovering up everything before any other species get a chance. Maybe I need a Harris Hawk of my own .

    Kiliwia, what did you think of the Terry De Gunzberg line ?. RHM rather mirrored my own opinion with her recent assessment - stunning bottles with contents that are pleasant enough, but largely uninspiring. Style over substance for me, I'm afraid.

    Jon, Parti Pris is the only one I've tried. It was a free sample in a bag I got for buying at Barneys. It's a nice fragrance, I do love tuberose, but there are other companies that do it better.

    Cello, did you get your new toy? The new Macbook Pro with retina is very swish, really enjoying mine.

    Well four and a half hours sleep has bettered the previous nights effort by an hour. No run this morning, headed to yoga instead, trying to get flexy again. They took the boards off my bedroom window and since I'm without curtains at the moment I may have inadvertently given the neighbour a good eyeful. What a way to start the day! In Rose 31 this morning.

    Jon I love pigeon! Those tasty little gamy morsels are perfect in a pie. Pass the Shiraz and here's chocolate eclair cake for after

    YES! Actually, this one in particular is just about exactly how I picture Evangeline!

    Xscent, glad you got a bit more sleep than usual -- even if it is still not enough! Hopefully the yoga will wake you up. And you smell just wonderful - Rose 31 is one of my favorites. (I think I am a bit of a broken record with that, sorry everybody, I just love it!)

    I just got back from the grocery store. I loathe grocery shopping. Every time I go I wish I lived in one of those little French towns with a bakery and a produce stand in the town square (where I live in a little apartment above said bakery with a balcony that overlooks said square) where I can buy fresh stuff to eat each day. I tend to put off grocery shopping until the only thing in my cabinets are things that require chopping or steaming or boiling or, well, in general, time. At the store, I stubbornly refuse to get a cart, (I want to grocery shop with a basket like a French person, if I can't be a French person),so I start filling up my tiny basket, which only holds half the things on the list so that I am forced to prioritize the list and get only the essentials that will fit in the basket (coffee, Halloween candy, Fritos) and then precariously balance a few more things (yogurt, bananas) on top of the lot, then grab several more things that I have to hold in my free hand or squish between my stomach and the basket. And when I get home I unpack it all and realize I still have nothing to eat. Then I realize there is no law that says I cannot open the Halloween candy until tomorrow, so I eat a fun size 1000 Grand for dinner and am immediately overcome with oppressive shame. And am still hungry.

    Does this happen to anyone else??
