    Ok, I haven't been able to log in at all, over and over the BN page did nothing..just was a white screen with basenotes.net on top. It's like I was on the page but it didn't load...what's up with that? Other sites loaded fine.. but just a white screen with BN.net. It feels like the equivalent of the Microsoft blue screen, lol. Ugh.

    Anyway, also in Kilian, Love and Tears.

    Good morning! It's so cold, -5 wind chill. Sorry to complain about the cold everyday, it just takes me a while to get used to it.

    It's great to have our flags back and our wardrobe bottle.

    Wearing Mauboussin this morning. I'm liking this one more and more. Notes are bergamot, mandarin, plum, jasmine, peach, rose, ylang ylang, ambergris, benzoin, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla and cedar.





    Have a great day!

    Safe travels and safe return, XScent, with lots of fantastic adventures in between! All you Lutens-ers smell divine (mmm, Bas de Soie, Evangeline), as does our wonderful Quarry, even with prickeldy arms.

    Today I'm trying Slumberhouse Sova from a sample that had a bit of a walk-about in Chicago, and will find its way back there, if I have anything to say about it. I see exactly what rin_nd means about the "richness" of the line. These fragrances definitely seem to me to have heft! This one reminds me of the early Lutens honey-heavy fragrances.

    Sova Notes: Sweet clover, beeswax, poplar, genet flower, golden grains, hops, hay, tobacco.
    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

    Good morning, I am in Alien today!

    ComDiva, I don't remember which slumberhouse scents I tried but didn't like any...I think they were all very "masculine" though, and dark dark dark, have not smelled any of their flowery stuff. They did seem loud and thick, like if it was a good smell it would be very substantial and quality smellin', they just were unpleasant to my nose.

    SOTD: Tendre est la Nuit by Majda Bekkali. I really like the emotionally warming feeling of this one since it's another cloudy rainy Northwestern November day. I'm sitting in front of a sun lamp for 15 minutes, hoping that will help me be less cranky about having to go to work today.

    Back to work today after almost a week off, at Disney. I managed to get sick before I left and then after a frantic week of running all over the parks, came home Friday sicker than ever. So after all weekend resting, I am at work today and pummeled by stacks of paperwork and a backlog of calls & emails. I just finally got a moment to read today's SOTD and see you all. Hi hi hi!

    I'm scent twins with Kiliwia today in Mauboussin. It seemed to go perfectly with my leopard-print skirt.

    Hope you all are having a great week. I'll have to see if I have some time to go back and read the past week and catch up with you, but it looks like XScent is off on vacation (bye! Have fun!!) and Quarry is injuring herself with rambo gardening!

    Re-testing 1899 HDP. There is something stem-y green that doesn't agree with me. Maybe it's the lime+iris+juniper together, idk. I just like that cinnamon note in there, it's really good. I need to find other cinnamon scents. Spicebomb wasn't for me, even though I do know some females do wear it. I guess there is Musc Rav..I may have to find that sample, what little is left of it, to retest. Lol, I just think of my hubs saying that it smelled like 'sweaty roadkill'. Obviously, he wasn't a fan.

    We're back after an overnight visit to Wheaton College, MA, where daughter plans to apply. She spent the night in a dorm with a host, we were in a hotel.

    All night I kept hearing rhythmic whooshing noises. "What IS that?" I finally muttered to husband.
    "The TARDIS" he calmly murmured back.

    I wore LAP Fleur d'Oranger while away; he wore Orange Sanguine.
