    Default SOTD, Monday 11th August, 2014.

    Hello fellow Basenoters!

    Well we seem to have missed most of
    what Hurricane Bertha was threatening to throw at us -
    just a bit of heavy rain and a few leaves on the lawn.

    It's a Roma kind of day! Definitely one of my most treasured
    scents. Enjoy your day.

    It has cooled off here, so I am busting out the Chanel Bois des Iles, in EDT and parfum! I am excited to wear this, as it has been a while.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    How does this compare to Bois d'Ascese, Ryan? Be curious to know

    Good morning, all!

    I don't know why I am so lazy and I don't post, when I really want to... I did read all your posts though!

    I took some days off from work, but I am not planing to go anywhere. It is hot here an it is going to get worse the next days...

    I am wearing one of my favorites for summer,

    Both are entirely different scents IMO. Fireside Intense is more about castoreum and birch tar/cade which provides the fragrance with a strong leather component to compliment the cade/birch smoke; there's more of an underlying syrupy sweetness to FI as well and nice musk/wood dry down vs. the dirty oakmoss in Bois d'Ascese. The Goodsir should be named Fireside Intense IMO as it is definitely more of a realistic campfire scent and the Sonoma is more about leather, musks and smoke. Both are great, I prefer Bois d'Ascese.

    Thanks, Ryan - I was testing Bois d'Ascese this weekend, that's why I was curious.

    Good afternoon all !. Kewart, we also got off pretty lightly here with nothing more than a fresh breeze and a few torrential downpours. Others were not so fortunate - a colleague travelled all the way down to Bristol for the balloon festival (which ended up being cancelled) and friends in the Isles of Scilly had minor structural damage and flooding due to the gales and high tides there.


    Kicking things off this week with a citrus fix .....










    Best wishes to everyone for the week ahead.

    I see from yesterday's SotD thread that Two Roads has passed away. Truly sad news. It's a loss for humanity when someone kind leaves our midst.

    Good morning! Hope you guys had a great weekend.

    I'm wearing Malle Eau de Magnolia for the second day in a row from a sample. I had a friend sniff it yesterday and he really liked it as well. I will probably get a decant when my sample is gone as I am really enjoying it; it's the first magnolia I've tried and I there are a handful I'd like to try.

    Ryan, it is too weird that your shrew came back the day after I found the bat!

    I am having some nerves today over a big decision (not work or move-related). It's something I want to pull the trigger on now, before I change my mind, but it's a scary decision and part of me thinks I'm crazy for doing it, so there's part of me that says I should wait and think about it some more, but I hate the feeling of indecision. Hopefully once I finalize it I will feel better.

    Hello everyone. Kewart and Jon, very glad and relieved you were ok through the hurricane. Thought for those who did not fare as well.

    Hopefully everything goes well for you Erin, BTW I was able to extract the shrew alive...again. I don't know why they keep gnawing through the screen and even the tape I had to put over the holes they chewed through.... I've since covered the window well where there were spaces. Hopefully that will help.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Glad to hear that everyone here made it safely through that hurricane that passed through - those can be so scary.
    Ryan - WTH with the creepy crawler?
    ErinK - indecision can be difficult, try to just 'do your best' & be okay with that

    Nice, reminds me of this 'spa spray' that I bought at a holistic store a couple months ago. Light, easy-to-wear, slightly floral.

    Good morning, all....glad to know our UK friends didn't have a lot of damage from Bertha.

    I'm a bit on tenterhooks today as the potential buyer of my mother's house will be seeing it in half an hour with my agent.

    I needed a calming scent and settled on a dab of lavender essential oil.

    I was originally planning on seeing Jujy54 in NY this week, but other things have come up, work being the main one. So I'm wearing Mayotte today because it was one of the first real perfumes she introduced me to when we met on an Amtrak train when I was 17. I loved it then, still love it now. Hope she has a safe and enjoyable trip.

    Good morning and best to all. I unplugged last night and finished the wonderful Cloud Atlas. This morning I'm wearing Le Labo Iris 39. I don't even like iris fragrances as a rule (sorry!) but this one joins No. 19 as an exception. It seems particularly lively, sparkly and interesting today.

    You know, Rynegne, that little guy is kind of cute. Not that I'd want him trying to get in my house.
