    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.

    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Hello fragrant friends,
    I am late this year, but I do wish you a fantastic 2018 full of moments of happiness and in good health only!
    I spent Christmas und New Year up in my cabin mainly skiing. I haven't skied at all in nearly 20 years, but, yup, if you once were a good skier, it would click in automatically in an instant. I had so much fun. Words can not describe it. The scent of cabin was Cologne Sologne in order to keep myself nicely fragrant and fresh. The weather had everything in store from lots of sunshine to a blizzard (1.5 feet of snow) with fantastic deep-snow skiing the very same day, rain, stormy winds.
    When I arrived back home in the east I had such an urge to spritz away heavily with the blast that is L'Heure Bleue vintage EdP. I haven't recovered since and wore the old PdT to work today.
    It is hard to adapt to my work routine, but I am trying.
    Hugs and kisses (who would take them)

    Happy New Year, Larimar! You sound so relaxed and happy! Very glad you had a great time. And glad you’re still a good skier; no broken Larimars allowed. Hugs and kisses right back!

    I hope you’re starting to improve today, Jon! The gents in my life don’t do man flu, either. You’re the type who keeps the world running when the rest of us are crybabies. And we love you for it! Get well soon!

    (((thediamondsea))) I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend. Wishing you comfort and peace.

    I’m in No.5 extrait today; have a good day, all!

    Happy Birthday, CapriDog! I hope you're having a wonderful day!

    Good morning, everyone--and thank you, PerfumedLady and rynegne. Hugs to you both. I'm hanging in there, because the alternative is to let go--and no way am I ready to do that . . ..

    And happiest of birthdays to CapriDog! You're one of our real treasures here on FFD, especially with those gorgeous images that you post.


    It's a cold, damp, nasty, foggy day out there. I'm keeping warm, as best I can, in a good spritz of Coromandel. I understand so much more about the appeal of this perfume now that we're having a proper winter. I've always loved it, but I find it hard to wear in the heat; on the other hand, it's absolutely perfect on a dismal morning like this one, a warming companion and a reminder that the world is still beautiful..


    Oh--I just realized something. Yesterday marked my second Basenotes anniversary. Is it me, or does it seem like I've been here for a lot longer? Time is really bending and warping lately.

    Hi all,

    I’m wearing Coco today in honor of Chanuary. It’s a nice warm scent for this chilly, wet day here in Southern California. Every minute of this wintery weather is heaven to me. To those who’ve asked, there are no mudslides in our immediate area.

    ErinK, what a stunning picture!

    Have a good day.

    Good morning (again), everyone!

    The weather app on my iPhone tells me that it's 50F (9C) outside, but it feels cooler than that by quite a bit. It's pretty foggy out there, so that could be contributing to the chilly feeling, but I also wonder if the weather folks need to adjust their projected temperatures down by just a tad. Even if we get 10 degrees warmer, as predicted, it's hard to get creaky feeling out of my bones. We have another front heading in, and it's going to get well below freezing, again, tomorrow night. Where, I ask, is the snow? We need just a little, for appearance's sake, if nothing else.

    Jon--sending virtual chicken soup your way. That's how my Jewish grandmother rolled, and it's still the first thing I do when I get the crud. Or, in a pinch, good chicken broth with lemon juice, ginger, and cayenne--mugs of it alternated with echinacea tea and honey. Stay warm and beat this thing soon .

    I topped off the Coromandel drydown with some Angel Muse. Everyone talks about the hazelnut and vetiver action in this perfume, and they're present without a doubt, but nobody mentions the wildly fruity topnotes--I think maybe litchi is listed, which seems about right, because this fruit is more tart and a little more on the exotic side than Angel's usual ripe red berries. All the sweet and spicy scents in my wardrobe are getting a workout this year, which is great because I worry about neglecting them . . . .

    And I like this image from the Mugler website well enough, but that hashtag is not doing it for me. Gah, I'm an old crank.
