    Morning people!

    Healing vibes to all those suffering from seasonal lurgy. That includes me, by the way, though I can still smell, which is some consolation.

    Don't tell anyone at no. 68, but I've gone for Eau d'Hermes today. A change is as good as a rest.

    Hello from Bali, hope all of you feeling poorly get better soon. Sending you a bit of sunshine and heat from the tropics but not the intense Aussie summer kind which is brutal.

    I must be only female to have avoided errant underwire issues, knock on wood. You gals are hilarious.

    Good morning and thanks everybody for the wishes. I'm feeling better, and I hope the same for everybody else suffering.

    SotD is Etro Sandalo, my Christmas present to my loved one: I need to retest it on my own skin, where it doesn't make wonders, while on my loved one's does.... I guess it's my usually higher body temperature that moves more quickly the base notes and pushes forward cedarwood too soon...
    A gorgeous fragrance, anyway, I must edit my review!

    Best to all, heal soon to whom it may concern and enjoy your holiday Xscent!

    Good afternoon all !. Mrs E, sorry your entertainment has been temporarily curtailed in Melbourne but I really think it was the humane thing to do. I can't imagine even breathing in 40 degree heat, never mind playing tennis.

    Glad you are feeling better iodine, hoping Wolfie and Mr T are showing similar improvement.

    We have some nice travels going, Xscent and Evangeline! Thanks for the lovely pics, Xscent! Now Mojito is a summer favorite here. Smelling good also in my Malle fave (sprayed I assume? nevertheless ).
    Sous le Vent. It feels like early spring here... may it continue for good!

    Beautiful, Xscent! That is a perfect looking vacation, and it's nice you are dodging some of the hottest days.

    It's cold here, too cold to run this morning for me. Hopefully it warms up by the weekend, we are going to a concert outdoors! The oddly named "Sunshine Blues and Music Festival" in St. Pete, on Sunday. Which sounds like something I would say being snarky, not sure how it got past the marketing dept.

    Avon (Mark) Karmala today, the hidden gem.

    Stay scented

    Good morning!!

    My work computer has once again decided not to cooperate with Basenotes (I cannot post forum replies or send PMs), so I've been AWOL the past few days, again. Finally just got out my phone this morning to post, I miss you guys too much not to say hi!

    Xscent, I just drooled all over my keyboard looking at those pics. That resort looks flippin' amazing!! Get some sun for me, oh, and I'll have a sangria while we're at it. Hope you are having a blast!!

    Evangeline, I know you're no stranger to heat but please be careful!! Heard this morning they're rescheduling/postponing today's matches. I can't imagine doing anything in 110 degrees much less playing tennis!

    cello, how do you like Naiviris? I found it overly sweet, nearly cloying, like a candied iris, not what I like in an iris! At any rate, I'm joining you in iris today in 28 La Pausa.

    Hugs to all who are ailing! Please rest and feel better soon Wolfie.

    Coincidence, me too. I had a craving for it. Had to leave the house early today, since I had to move my lunch-time gym workout to the morning before work, since I have a lunch appointment. I hate mornings at the gym but I did it. It was nice taking a hot shower in the locker room and dousing myself with this wonderful scent.



    When I run out of my samples I might need to buy a large decant of it. And the III also, the lavender one. I love both of them so much.


    It's cool, sunny and beautiful here. Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC day!
    Xscent - how DECADENT you look. Mojitos smell awesome, don't they? Watch out. They'll sneak up on you.
    iodine: I was just reading about Etro Sandalo last night, extensively. I was considering a bottle of it but I've never sampled it. I'm scared of buying it blind. I'm such a sandalwood fan but there are many sandalwood scents I do not like. As this hobby grows more and more I have become less fond of buying scents unsniffed. Considering I already own so many scents I love.
    Twolf - how are you feeling?

    I'm waffling between wanting to step into Xscent's photo scene and the forest Jon found.

    After days of sloshing about in vanilla betwixt Cadjmere and Shalimar, I'm now in a surprising Bel Respiro rut. Today's the third in a row. It's still below freezing outside, but now that's it above 0°F/-18°C and the daylight grows longer, I've set my sights on spring.

    They're my favourites from the line too, Mike.
    Have you tried XIII ? I find it similar to Fougueuse, but with plenty of smoky birch tar.
    Anyway, smelling great

    Hello!

    Quarry, the video is darling. A big kiss to you too, Miss Piggy!

    I am wearing Olene by Diptyque today. I am not looking forward to another 80 plus degree day today. I'd love some cooler weather or even rain so I could wear my favorite sweaters and winter perfumes. Oh well... Have a lovely day everyone!

    Thanks for the recovery wishes, we are improving all right, steady. Could not figure out what to eat yet, because nothing seems to agree with us, even tried and true stuff like apple sauce and toasted bread. Craving Chinese and also a big lettuce salad (a dietary trainer once told me craving lettuce means one is dehydrated) with tons of honey mustard. Off from work another couple of three days.

    Van Cleef, a drop lasts all day.
