I could go on but it's so well covered in the thread my comments would be a bit redundant.

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Xscent - I saw when you bought that bottle of Sartorial I thought to myself 'I'd love to smell that on a woman'. I think it smells like vintage Brut with more radiance. I need a decant of that, one of these days.
    ExtremeK - have a good trip!
    Larimar - you painted a wonderful picture of your day & setting (irregardles of the upside down photo lol). Wish I was there to join you
    ErinK - BIG congratulations on your free agent status. It must feel great.
    Mike I have happy scent memories with Brut, my uncle wore it and he was a dapper as they come, dressed like he was one of the Rat Pack. Sartorial is absolutely reminiscent of vintage Brut with refined edge, Bertrand Duchaufour did a brilliant job creating a classic fougere and damn if I didnít enjoy the lovely wafts of it all yesterday. How bout we make your one day today? Unless smelling on a women is the deal breaker in which case I could be persuaded to hop a plane to Miami. PM me details and let me send you out some.

    Mine, too. The first Serge Lutens I ever loved. And it's the fragrance that Tania Sanchez calls "death by jasmine," which cracks me up, since (i) it's funny, and (ii) it's true. If you like jasmine, though, that's not a bad way to go.

    Me, three, Mike and Mocha -- I adore A La Nuit. I just bought a back-up bottle but as I'm about halfway through the first one, I don't think one back-up will be enough. I would be heartbroken if this one were lost to the IFRA Idiotic Overlords.

    Mike, I couldn't agree more about SF. I has a romance and bonhomie that no other US city has. I think it's our "continental" gem

    Kiliwia, we should just sample all of the Mazzolaris together. PM me if you're interested. I'm especially interested in Lui (I'll bet my eye teeth Xscent would live that one) and Fleur d'Oranger.

    ErinK, I haven't tried Timbuktu, but I have sampled Dzongkha. And it took me three years to start getting it. I quite enjoyed it during my spa sampling.

    And now, as I've been up for almost 19 hours, I'm falling into bed.
