    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Guerlain Mon Exclusif today.

    I really don't understand why Guerlain puts these scents into an exclusive catrgory when this should be in department stores where it would be a hit together with La plus beau jour de ma vie and most of the Elixir Charnels.
    Nothing exclusive here.

    Good morning all !. Hopefully getting out and about for a short while today after being confined to barracks since Friday afternoon. I'm nothing like 100 per cent but at least I don't feel like I've been kicked in the head by a horse any more. There is a huge banoffee waffle with my name on it and a hefty dose of caffeine to work a little recuperative magic. Maybe a lunchtime glass of red will help too



    Happy Birthday FrouFrou

    Congratulations Cello

    Happy Birthday, FrouFrou!!!! Enjoy your special day!
    Thanks all regarding the 4000 posts - I did not even realize it except a little hint came via PM . You guys are too sweet!

    I spent a little time playing with my bottles and decants yesterday reorganizing for cooler weather. It's not really that much cooler, but the mornings are quite nice this time of year. Found a little bit of HdP Amber 114 left in a small decant, so I am wearing that today. Big plans today to try to get the car washed, house cleaned and grocery shopping done - not really exciting, but necessary.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    Happy Birthday to FrouFrou! Hope your day is as special as you are!

    Congrats to cello on 4000 posts! You're one of the BN greats; will have a toast in your honor later today!

    I'm so sorry you're still not feeling 100 per cent, Jon. Not fair. Hope today sees you perking up a bit more.

    Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare for me today. Felt like being rosy, pink and girly. Have a nice Sunday, everyone!

    Congrats cello on your milestone!

    Jon, sorry to hear you're still not feeling right, hope you feel better soon!

    l'm still not dressed or scented yet today! lnstead of our usual pub Sunday lunch, we're going for dinner this evening followed by our favourite pub quiz. lt's a long time since we've been, but as neither of us are working tomorrow, we thought what the heck.

    Hello everyone. Back after a family tragedy. My sister, my only sibling, was struck by a car on Tuesday afternoon while on her motorized scooter. She was thrown from the scooter and fell on her head, suffering a traumatic brain injury. By the time she was brought to the hospital the damage was already beyond repair with no hope of recovery so my parents, my husband, and I decided on no heroic measures. She died shortly after being taken off life support with all of us at her bedside. She was 52, two years younger than I.

    Carol was diagnosed at age 29 with multiple sclerosis, therefore her need of a scooter. As horrific as the accident was, the outcome was mercifully quick. She never saw the car because she was hit from behind. She was struck unconscious before she even knew what happened. So in a way I feel she had the last laugh over MS with her swift and pain-free demise. Had the accident not happened, she would have almost certainly suffered a slow, lingering decline.

    My sister wasn't as much into perfume as the rest of us, but she always wore it and enjoyed talking about it with me. She loved light sweet florals especially, and SummerbyKenzo was one that she owned and a favorite of hers. I sprayed her casket with it and wore it for her wake and funeral. And I'm wearing it again today. It's lovely: gentle mimosa and violet, with a soft milky note and light woods. It just feels like the right thing to wear now.

    Happy birthday to Frou Frou and congratulations to Cello. Dear Jon I hope you're feeling 100% better soon. And my best to you all.
