    Hello all! I'm in Iris D'Argent today. I'm finally getting a feel for what Iris is, I believe! I like this one. Why do I have such expensive tastes!?

    30Roses, I do hope you get to feeling better soon. I've been feeling nauseated the last few days, it is dreary!
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Hi, everyone! Happy belated birthday, 30 Roses!!!

    And sorry to hear you're under the weather - Clearly you need more birthday cake.

    RHM, good for you with the healthier lifestyle!!! I think you look great under every circumstance, but I wish my weight loss efforts were going as successfully as yours. I'll keep at it!

    In honor of the Olympics, I'm testing Le Labo Benjoin 19, exclusive to Russia, apparently based on the heat of love in Anna Karenina. It's lovely, though I am continually annoyed with Le Labo for their marketing tactics (partly because they work... sigh), and the exhorbitant price tags.I love Benjoin 19, but can't see myself ponying up for a bottle. Yet.

    Benjoin 19 notes: Benzoin, olibanum, amber, cedar, and musks.

    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

    Guerlain Flora Nymphea, doesn't last very long on the skin though.

    Erink, enjoy your Chanel!

    Hello. I love reading Basenotes, so I thought I might join in. Of course, it feels a little like I'm crashing a party.

    Over the last three months I've been mostly sampling a lot of new and new-to-me scents. Today, I felt the need for a rest, and for something comfortable and familiar. So today I'm wearing Chanel No. 5.

    As much as I enjoy trying new things, the old standby really feels great, too.

    danieq, hurray!!! I was wondering when you would take on iris. So glad to see you enjoying it! To celebrate your revelation, I have joined you in Iris d'Argent for my SOTE. Great choice - it is one of my favorites.

    Big news in my family today: my little brother has gotten engaged! He proposed to his beloved this afternoon in a very romantic way and has gotten her a freakin' gorgeous rock. I have so many mixed emotions about it. Happiness (a muted sort of happiness), sadness, weirdness, envy,confusion. I've haven't met his fiancé yet. It just feels so strange...and I'm having a hard time not internalizing it and feeling like a depressing weirdo divorced spinster loser sister. I'm hoping it will all be easier once I meet her and see how happy they are.

    Editing to welcome Mocha! You smell divine! Good smelling folks are always welcome in this party.

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in more roses for the remains of the day, but these are deep and dark and herbal and sultry, and *totally* the type FrouFrou would like; they're coming from Ungaro Diva, vintage 80s edp.

    Have a great evening!

    I am really starting to understand that it has to be dark, bitter, deep, and chypre.
    Otherwise I might like it, I might admire it, but it doesn't touch me to the depths of my soul. So I should not be tempted to buy something which isn't dark and chypre-ish.
    It also seems I am doomed to vintage...
    No need to be ashamed, Frou - I'm completely honored! Besides, if we can't get tips from one another what's the the point of hangin' out around here? I totally get where you're coming from - a good chypre can move me like nothing else, and unfortunately, vintage chypres are the *best*, period. ("Dreamrabbit" ...so freakin' cute. )

    I think as long as happiness is in there somewhere, all those emotions are perfectly fine and valid - it's big, exciting news, the sort that tends to change things, forever. But don't let it make you feel bad about yourself - as teardrop said, your time *will* come. I suppose I felt much the same way when my brother announced his engagement (many years ago) ...but I already knew her, so I didn't feel too bad about being totally *bummed* while simultaneously being happy for him, lol (you can't like everyone ..and at least *I* don't have to live with her!) I was so sorry, btw, to read about your breakup. It felt that it was too late to mention it once I was back from our vacation, otherwise I would have said something earlier. Sending belated but hopefully still comforting hugs to (((you))), sweetie.

    Welcome to basenotes, Mocha - I hope you stick around and have lots of fun with us.

    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

    Thank all of y'all for humoring my self-indulgent moping! Thank you for the sweet reminder, teardrop, and FrouFrou , LMAO at the cats! Perfect. When I first posted my little bit of news, I included a bit at the end like "I'll be OK - after all, I live in a country where I can vote and buy perfume and have cats...lots of cats..." but I deleted it cause I didn't want y'all to think I had gone totally over the edge. You read my mind! Evangeline, thank you for empathizing with me; it makes me feel better to know these feelings might be normal and don't mean I'm necessarily a wicked witch.

    Evangeline, Diva sounds great. I'm going to have to seek out a bit. That's a great bottle, too.

    Iris d'Argent was the right choice for my evening. The iris is comforting but strong and confident at the same time. It is quite fortifying.

    Anyone else sort of nerdily excited about watching figure skating tonight?

    Welcome Mocha! You smell wonderful No.5 is one of my favourites.

    Frou Frou so adorable cats and ‘dreamrabbit’.

    RHM well done! Smelling wonderful in jasmine too.

    Danieq and ComDiva you know I’m going to be enabling you from afar.

    ErinK No.19 is a beautiful choice, you make a awesome Valentines. We feel what we feel it’s not right or wrong it just is. Be kind to yourself, treat yourself well and know there are people who do think the world of you. Oh and a YES to the figure skating.

    Lots of Eau de Cologne need a fresh citrus hit for a big run this morning.

    Frou Frou is it from The Code of the Woosters? I think I have some of his work somewhere in my library (currently in about a dozen or more moving boxes as the shelves are taking forever to fit!). I think I'm also doomed to seek vintage. Nothing quite compares. Hoping Wasser works some more magic, we may still have hope there.

    RHM, you inspire me.

    I'm just sipping tea and eating Jello, but am on the mend. I've been looking at recorded Olympics and am also looking forward to watching the skating in a little while. Daughter enjoys the snowboarding.
