    Thank you everyone for your beautiful words and thoughts. I apologize if i put a morbid tone in this off topic section. I just thought maybe through the power of numbers we can somehow get through to her that its ok to let herself go.

    She left this earth and went home this morning around 9am. As difficult as it was to see such an amazing human leave, you can't help but feel happy that her soul is finally at ease.

    A truly classy lady until the very end. Nails painted and the ever so slight smell of perfume in the air.

    I got a few minutes away from everything so i thought i would check in here. And it really put a smile on my face.

    Thank you again to everyone. I will return the prays and thoughts. Please keep yourselves and families healthy and happy.

    Have a good night everyone!

    Post The 'Whatever happened too' thread

    Sometimes when I'm on Basenotes I wonder what happened to many long time and respected posters. There could be a plethora of reasons, I'm sure, but maybe some of you may know why they stopped posting or maybe why they lost an interest in fragrance all together?

    Also, who are some posters who are no longer active that you miss seeing post and why?

    Many have gone off to other groups, e.g. a Facebook fragrance group. I'm sure their reasons are varied.
    They are missed!

    I've been missing Rubegon and Mimi Gardenia. I think they are both just busy, but I always enjoy their posts. Both are knowledgeable and humble which is a lovely combo!

    Daniel Plainview seemed a bit of a character -- haven't seen him post for a while

    Trebor's last postings seemed to end in a bit of a tear-up with another poster so maybe that was the final straw for him

    Hi!

    Please note that this thread is being merged with the Off Topic thread as it's not a fragrance discussion.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I've noticed too that some have migrated there.
