    Good morning all !.

    Xscent, your stamina never ceases to amaze


    Mrs E, great news about Roger


    Mike, I think I would need far more than just one expletive faced with your situation. Hopefully Monday will finally see it resolved.


    In olfactory bliss this morning with one of yesterday's two purchases. The Different Company - De Bachmakov.

    Notes include: Cedar wood, bergamot, shiso leaves, nutmeg, coriander leaves, white freesia, soft chalk accord.






    The Different Company were previously unexplored for me until yesterday's brief visit to Harvey Nicholls. Absolutely love this - chilly and uplifting with a real zing to it, conjuring up imagery of northern forests and tundra. I had no idea who the nose behind it was (Céline Ellena) but can clearly feel the family DNA running through the creation now. Strikes a perfect balance - not too sweet, not too green, unisex, wonderful.
    Yesterday's other purchase will be for later. Mrs Q and Mike will already know what it is

    Happy Mothers day. Here are two photos, one of my mom holding my late sister Rachel, who was herself a wonderful mother. I miss them both so much, and honor my other two sisters, who are great moms. The other photo is of me backstage at Cleveland's State Theater with my two kids. They came to see Cleveland Ballet's Nutcracker, for which I played in the orchestra. The swan in the background was used at the end of Act I. The year was 1995 or 1996.

    Sampling Sunday for me, which means I'm digging into a trove made possible by so many kind basenotes friends.

    A lovely day to all.

    Good morning and Happy Mother's Day! Rocky has not wished me a Happy Mother's Day yet, although Emma-cat meowed loudly in my face to wake me up this morning. I think she wanted to let me know how much she loves me this Mother's Day. (Kidding. She was hungry.)

    Giving Atelier Cologne Silver Iris another wear. It is SO sweet. Definitely the fruitiest iris I've ever tried. And I cannot shake the connection to the horrid Lancome La Vie Est Belle.





    Mike, I can *sort of* feel your pain. I realized yesterday that my AC is not working either. The outside unit's running fine, but the air isn't pumping into my house. Drat these ACs and our expectations of cool air! I'm trying to pretend I'm in the 1800s or a 3rd world country or something and that it's normal not to have cooled air inside the house.

    jujy, thank you for sharing those sweet photos and stories. Rachel was an adorable baby!

    Happy Mother's Day to all those celebrating, & congrats rynegne on your milestone!

    My gardening will have to wait until later in the week due to the wet & windy weather, so l've occupied myself with catching up on neglected housework, grocery shopping & just a little indoor pottering this weekend. (Evangeline; l'm sure puttering is just as satisfying! )

    Changed into Coccobello for this evening, which l find rather more woody than coconutty, but still makes me dream of summer...

    Best wishes for a happy Mums day!

    Sky woke me up this morning attacking my foot, she too, was hungry. So I got some loving from my fur child. Human child has yet to respond.

    I'm planning to do yard work today, plant my hydrangeas & pull out some invasive honeysuckle & some weird tree sapling that sprouted all over the place.

    Enjoying some coffee this morning & a bit of apple torte.

    Scent wise, I'm craving iris, straight up, no chaser IRIS. The closest thing I own is Xerjoff's Iriss, so that's what I'm wearing.

    For some reason, I can't load the photos of my garden. I'll keep trying.

    Mike, your invite is a standing one.

    Hi everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!! It's been a lovely weekend here so far. My son Tim and his fiancée Katie, brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers yesterday and my son Mark surprised me with a bottle of Jo Malone Sweet Lemon a few minutes ago. I had mentioned it in passing a few weeks ago that I liked it and he remembered.

    Jujy, thank you for sharing with your touching post and pictures.

    Congrats Rynegne on your 4000 posts!

    Jon - I loved De Bachmakov when I tested it also. Reminds me of a wintery Granville. Enjoy your Marni.
    ErinK - a/c issues suck...hope yours are resolved soon also
    RHM - ((hugs)) just because
    Kiliwia - I love that Jo Malone also - enjoy!
    papaya - welcome to BN
    rynegne - looking forward to smelling Limed soon


    Dancing was FUN last night (guess who I ran into there? My ex and his new fiancee' [[awkward]]) so I slept in til noon, spent a lazy day around the house and then the pool, had lunch with a friend & now I'm thinking of taking a nap.

    Scent now is:

    Tam Dao Eau de Parfum by Diptyque



    Smells so good on sun-warmed skin: the whisper of cream, a pinch of lime-spritzed-coconut and the solid block of wood. I will need a new bottle soon, my travel bottle is almost empty.

    Xscent, cashmere and BdI seems right for you, no matter the season. I hope it's calming and snuggly whenever you take a big inhale.

    I decided to roll the dice on some white musk today -- it's warmish, storming off and on, and everything is getting greener right before my eyes, so Serge Lutens Fleurs de Citronnier just seemed right. I'm probably still craving citrus

    (((Mike))) -- you have the patience of a saint! And you smell wonderful, of course.

    I hope all of you enjoy the remains of the weekend. xxxoooo

    Hello all! I checked out yesterday and never posted.
    Today, I'm doing a bunch of nothing. Pottering, as dear teardrop might say. Finally decided to spray something, and L'Artisan Premier Figuier Extreme got the call.

    Jon! I love that Different Company fragrance - yet another that you and I were pondering purchases of, except you tend to go ahead and purchase, and I just ponder So that is two for you and none for me yet - De Backmakov and Tom of Finland. Both are high on my next purchase list. But I suppose it is OK to just ponder awhile, like pottering

    Good evening, good smelling ones.

    Urara's Tokyo Cafe perfume today, from the 4160 Tuesdays.

    Mike, I hope you were able to keep cool, both physically and in the face of the guest list awkwardness.

    Welcome to Papaya!

    Concerts were fantastic at the Heatwave, had a nice family night on Friday with my mom, kids, and the Boyfriend, and then a date night on Saturday, managing to drink just the right amount to get a little bit relaxed but enjoy all the bands, that was perfect.

    Don't actually have my kids today, oddly enough they are with their dad for Mother's Day because he won't be able to see them for a couple of weeks as we travel to NC for the oldest daughter's graduation from College They will be home shortly and it was nice to get a date night so it all works out fine.

    Robin, I was wondering if you were going both nights ... I really like the band The Hold Steady and saw they were playing Saturday night.

    Did you get hit with any of the storms the past two days? We had a few sprinkles but no damaging winds or hail in my area.
