    Good Morning everyone. Wish you all the best

    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..."

    Happy birthday, Mother 30 Roses!

    First official wearing of my newly acquired Dior Collection Privee Oud Ispahan from our Chicago meet-up adventures. WOW!!! A labdanum powerhouse with just the right blend of sweet rose and spicy/bitter wood supporting the labdanum and keeping the whole thing truly interesting. Loving it!

    On a semi-related topic: I think I may have accidentally put my P1 Slumberhouse (all of them) and Penhaligon's Zizonia samples in the sample swapfest in Chicago... Delighted to have them off and away in the BN family, but if anyone here has a spare sample of any of these lying around, would you PM me to discuss a possible trade? I still need to test them all. And I bake... :smile:

    Oud Ispahan notes: Labdanum absolute, patchouli, Laotian oud essence, rosa Damescena essence, sandalwood essence.

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hi all & happy birthday to mommy Roses! Hope she has a good day.

    Q, why don't you just buy that bottle already? Lord knows you must have gone through a zillion samples by now.

    Kewart; l'm not being posh at all today. l wore one of my favourite cheapies for work, Ghost original.

    Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend!

    Good morning, nice smelling people!

    Teardrop, you are posh too, Ghost (the original Tania Sarne) with roses and sandalwood is getting harder and harder to get and in some instanses the price goes up as if it were a niche scent.( Am I lucky to have about 1.5 ml left from Whitefluffy?) This same thing happened to my L'Or de Torrente, unfortunately. Somehow I received the news that another inexpensive favorite might be on the chopping block, so please stock up when/if you can: Balmain de Balmain.

    Happy Birthday to 30R. mama! I was just yesterday thinking of her in that Jimmy's bright blue scarf.

    My friend and I went apple picking again this morning, mostly for her apple pie fillings. Stopped by a garage sale on the way back and -- oh thank you, Lord! -- I bought a new (to me!) Joanne Harris book (in cooperation) The French Market, for a dollar! For the fear of sounding like a broken record, I love her style.

    And another great thing: Mims, I am also in Fate. I tried it for the first time earlier this week and was undecided: weak for an Amouage, nothing oriental about it at all, a nice departure from their traditional line. Gotta get more of that lipsticky rose (unfortunately FM does not work on this skin).

    Have a nice weekend.

    Chanel No. 5 EDT, thanks again, Twolf for getting my attention to this one. I find it similar to the EDC a little.
    I have yet to try Fate, sounds like an interesting one and I do like spice!

    ((30R)) and (Mom 30R)

    For some reason, I thought clocks went back already...but nope..it's usually on a Saturday...lol, it's kinda funny when the clocks change and people are either an hour late or early to church.

    Ugh, Basenotes is slow again...ugh. I didn't miss that at all.

    L'Artisan Mure et Musc extreme. As the year grows short, so does the perfume in the bottle. I need a budget just for this one - it's one of my favorites by far, and is not a 'dabber', light and spread out smells good.

    Happy Birthday to Mama Roses and safe travels to Sea Roses -- I hope you lose yourself in the magic that place must weave

    ErinK, I loved your Halloween story! We went through three Costco bags of candy in about 2.5 hours. It was incredible! I'm crossing my fingers you hear some exciting news soon

    Feeling any better, elizrj? I typically load myself up with Vitamin D3, echinacea, and packet after packet of EmergenC. It's worked well for me, including when I was in Vermont with mom. Never succumbed to the cold I thought for sure would lay me out. Hopefully you can knock out whatever this bug is and get back to enjoying yourself and your vacation.

    Twolf, my favorite of the Frapins is 1270. Once you sniff it, that will surprise you not at all. Speakeasy is my second favorite of the line.

    Yesterday, I was redolent of plummy stewed spice and cedar in the lovely Feminite du Bois. Still lemming for Serge today in Arabie.

    Why thank you, Twolf! l regularly see Ghost in Boots here for around £25 a bottle. Maybe they're selling off old stock, which means l should get backups, l guess...

    Spookily, l was thinking about that blue scarf today, too!

    I'm not feeling too grand today- my OH came back from work complete with a lurgy yesterday so we're both running a fever but we didn't get the number of the bus that hit us.

    I am, however, smelling fabulous while I'm not feeling good. Galimard EDP, sunshine citrus followed by spices.

    Memoirs of a Trespasser this evening; smokey vanilla for a cosy night in. lt's wet & windy again outside, so we're staying right here with a bottle of merlot, some TV to catch up on, Mr teardrop's carbonara & chocolate eclairs for pud. Perfect!

    All of you with lurgies, do get well soon! l second the recommendation for echinacea. lt really does stop a cold in its tracks.

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in Coromandel this afternoon, maybe gearing up for more Voodoo Fest, maybe not. Pearl Jam was amazing last night, as always, and tonight is NIN ...but we saw them at last year's Voodoo Fest, and they'll probably be here next year, so I'm having a hard time convincing Tony that we really need to see them this time around. They do seem to play New Orleans a lot.

    Y'all have a good evening!





    Happy birthday wishes to MamaRoses - I hope she's having a wonderful day!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Evening to you all, early morning for me. Just wanted to see the goings in here. Still a bit jolly from last night and will be off for a much needed run soon.

    Tdem I would take you out for this meal in a heartbeat, its fabulous. Standing offer if you make it my way. See menu (www.thetrustee.com.au) I might post some badly composed photos tomorrow.

    ExtremeK you are the most lovely thing! Thanks for the words ((squish))

    Mimi its great seeing you back I have read many of your reviews but have been remiss in saying hi. Big fan.

    Quarry buy it already! Here's some shameless enabling. Consider it an early, early Christmas present or a reward for organising an awesome meet up.

    Sea Roses thinking of you, hope your are safe and well. Lancaster Hotel looks divine, very tempted.

    Elirzj look after yourself! Failing that come round to mine for big bowls of chicken soup.

    Sfmedusa (see Elizrj above)

    Evangeline what a brilliant pic.

    Last, but certainly not least happy birthday to MamaRoses, hope she had a wonderful day.

    Big (((hugs))) to all that need one.

    My SOTD is Christian Dior La Collection Privee, Mitzah edp

    I enjoyed this review of the fragrance: http://akafkaesquelife.wordpress.com...erfume-review/

    Notes: Russian coriander, Damascena Rose, spices, Sri Lankan cinnamon, vanilla, honey, labdanum, Indonesian patchouli, Somali frankincense and incense.

    The fragrance is stunning on me, which makes me particularly happy as the scents closest to this one do not sing on my skin as Mitzah does.

    I bought my bottle at Sak's during the Chicago basenotes meet up.
