    How the heck did I miss it was Halloween?

    It's past 1am and this girl is done, completely wiped out. On the upside was invited to dinner Saturday to one of my favourite places as a thank you.

    Twolf I'll stay up with you. This thread always makes me smile. Angel's bums hehe, love it.

    Cello congrats on the new computer what did you end up with?

    ErinK I have frequented my butcher, fromagerie, baker, fishmonger for years, they are the best and know me and my tastes well. It's wonderful when you have a personal stash of goodies they thoughtfully put aside for you because they know you will like it. Angels the lot of them. Well done on the interview and good luck sweets! 1932 is perfect.

    Elizrj sending good vibes on the second/third date. He should be so lucky!

    Evangeline good to know there someone in the know case I make it to your neck of the woods next year. I'll be pestering you for food, jazz and must see/do recommendations.

    ExtremeK ((hugs)) back to you, going to get my cashmere blankie and snuggle down with a book. I know you would understand blankie buddy.

    Having a long shower and switching vintage Cuir de Russie parfum for bed. A bit decadent but necessary tonight. Did I mention I ordered a new car today? Yep going topless baby! New cabriolet maybe here in time for Christmas. 2014 is going to be exceptional.

    Night all.

    ErinK good luck on the interview! I absolutely agree that 1932 is perfect for that.

    Jon, oh wow, lovely pictures. Do you know where those buildings are? I'm sorry you had to spend your perfume money on transportation

    cello, congrats on the new computer. Hope you're loving it!

    Thank you XScent! I am hoping it continues to go well, and I'll keep you posted!

    Happy Halloween if you are off Trick or Treating with the kids
    (or on your own maybe!!) - I have chosen Yves Rocher Cocoon
    for this witchy night.

    I think it's the Golden Temple at Amritsar, India.

    Hello everyone. What a colourful, friendly, cheery Halloween thread! Love to all.

    Quarry your angel had a hairy bottom?? How odd. Or just a round one? Like everyone else I look forward to more reports from Chicago.

    Ponging to the high heavens in all sorts of Roses, for Rubegon's thread.

    Good day wonderfully fragrant people!

    This new/old site is quite an adjustment, but there are some features that is so wonderful to have back.

    Mike - you smell absolutely wonderful in Black Aoud. What do you think about Aoud Cuir d'Arabie?

    Xscent - congrats on your new ride, it must be so exciting!

    (((Jon))) - Gorgeous pics, as always. And, I count an unexpected expenses in perfume bottles too.

    I am joining the sleep deprived crowd as my Hairless had stomach issues for three nights in the row. Waking up in 3 AM, cleaning, and not being able to go back to sleep is no fun at all. On a bright note, I ordered candles from Virginia Candle Company with the wooden wicks - when they burn, the crackling of fire adds to the festive atmosphere.

    Twinned with ErinK this morning in Chanel 1932, isn't cello quite a Chanel enabler ? For this evening it will be my go to Halloween fragrance - Deep Night by Ghost

    Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

    ErinK, I meant to wish you great luck as well, but I was multi-tasking during a stupid conference call and was in a rush. So, knock 'em dead, if you haven't already done so by now!

    elizrj, I'm so glad you're enjoying yourself! You deserve it

    Xscent, you big sweetheart, don't you know it? Your snazzy boudoir thanks you for the olfactory treat tonight. And congratulations on YOUR new treat!! Woo hoo!

    All this talk of round, hairy butts has me thinking that ELdO must have a new fragrance in the works -- but they already have Fat Electrician, so likely redundant.

    Hey y'all -

    I've made a new habit for myself, and that's following up a morning of Moulin Rouge with an afternoon of Lipstick Rose, or vice-versa. They're both makeup-y scents, and I always tend to go for these little fragrant themes throughout my day. I don't believe I'm alone in this, either - you do it too, right mike? But what did you call them ...I keep wanting to say "pageants" or "parades" ...how far off am I?


    Also, we're going to a Halloween party tonight - I'm the Pink Panther and Tony's Inspector Clouseau. Now, I usually never have a problem figuring out what fragrance to wear for what, but all I can think that makes sense (if it absolutely must make sense, as Tony said ..lol!) is Pink Sugar. Does anyone have any clever ideas? Since I'm a panther it should probably be more animalic than sweet, but I seem to be more focused on the whole pink aspect. Hmm ...maybe Mystère would be a better choice...?

    We'll be looking forward to it! And good luck with the interview - my fingers are crossed!

    Don't you have kids? Do y'all not get into the whole trick-or-treat biz? There's normally loads of chocolate involved, you know.

    I just spritzed on a little La Rose Jacqueminot. I am influenced by Rubegon's thread about roses and soliflores. Otherwise, Happy Halloween everybody!

    Excellent news! And you did smell great, btw - he was right. Boudoir is a wonderful, romantic and soft but very sexy date scent. Any mention of plans for a third yet?

    I love it. It is sort of even dirtier than Leather Oud but it really has this signature Montale oud radiance that I have been basking in all day today. Crazy longevity.

    I do this ALL of the time Evangeline. Today, it's oud & then oud later. Yesterday it was carnations in the a.m. & p.m. Sometimes I wear scents from the same house. Or the same perfumer. It's a sign that you know you're a Basenoter. ;0

    Kalli thank you! Quite happy to finally have made a decision. Ordered a grey one, Palladium Silver, I think they call it.

    Whitefluffy nice to see you and thank you.

    ExtremeK you are a darling! Blankie and CdR got me to 5am, I'll take that for now. Holding up surprising well four four hours sleep. Going for my run now.

    Elizrj yes please to date and dressing room updates

    Jon I think it only right you go get yourself something fragrant this minute for all that inconvenience you have suffered. Lovely pic btw.

    Thank you Xscent!

    Mike - I think that you and my husband have a lot in common: he loves oud but his absolute favorite ones are Aoud Cuir d'Arabie and Al Oudh - btw, you smell wonderful again . Next oud on his wish list is Songe d'un Bois d'Ete. I haven't tried Montale's Leather Aoud, maybe I really need to one of these days.

    Happy to give you an update! Yeah we have a date tonight which is funny because he originally didn't have time but he moved some things around. We are starting late at 10pm so taking a quick nap. Question is what to wear...hmmmm.

    Evangeline I have to say that Pink Sugar actually sounds right for the Pink Panther. He doesn't strike me as particularly gamey. He's more a glamorous gentleman. For some reason tabac blonde also comes to mind. Cute idea by the way. Please post pics!!

    We snuggled with Mr.T, slept for about three hours, ate cheese sticks reheated from frozen and now I am sporting Chantecaille Kalimantan. It is awesome, lemme tell you.

    No trick-o-treaters this year either.

    Mr Rogers how's a girls suppose to get any work done when you divert her attention to such treasures? Guess what I'm doing right this moment. Sincerest thanks from one enabler to another.

    Sea Roses that hideway looks divine. It's a dream to find one for myself when I'm next in that most magical of all cities.

    Twolf sigh! Sounds like a a wonderful night in.

    Now back to work. Determined to leave here while it's still light today.
