    Original Missoni EDP. Very much like finding a Terry's Chocolate Orange left over from Christmas.

    Which is appropriate, as I'd forgotten I owned this. I had also forgotten that Turin gave it five stars in The Guide, and spent a whole page discussing the technical marvels of its construction, without ever once mentioning how it smells. Well, it smells like chocolate and oranges.


    PS: I love how chatty the Basenotes Robot has become, giving us these little snippets of perfume news and commemoration.

    Hello fragrant friends,

    Let me assure you that the rumors about my birthday today is all fake news... oops, couldn’t resist. It is my basenotes birthday today and I very much appreciate your kind wishes just in the same way. Group hug and bear hug Mike-style !

    Ce soir to make up for the occasion it will be old Tabac Blond extrait from the old tassle etc. presentation... a ceremony itself.

    I too love your pics and background stories, Quarry!

    Continued feel good vibes going to teardrop!

    Zealot Crusader is holding Pasha in high esteem... it was my first ‚serious‘ perfume as a teenager and I went to 3 or 4 bottles.

    Best to all

    Thanks again for all the get well wishes, you lovely people. Jon, l love those blinking cats!

    l'm still feeling decidedly ropey today, & haven't even thought about a SOTD yet. Perhaps later, when l've decided whether to take a bath or a nap. Maybe both.

    Delighted to be unveiling another new purchase for the evening. Went on a fragrant foray this morning to get acquainted with Maison Margiela and one stood head and shoulders above the rest. SotE - At The Barber's.








    Can't say I'm overly impressed with any of the others though and (despite it's popularity) I thought Jazz Club was dreadful

    Good morning, folks. I'm unscented so far, trying to figure out what to wear for my tattoo appointment later. I want something pleasant that won't overwhelm the artist, perhaps my Witchmusk sample or Burberry Body Intense. I also have a sample of Reflection Woman around here somewhere...

    Jon, I have similar feels about Jazz Club, but I go back and forth between "ick" and "wow!" I just tried Harlem Nights by Chris Collins a few days ago and I like it a lot--it has a similar feel to Jazz Club but is a bit more polished.

    Happy Saturday!

    thekelleybelle, what tattoo are you getting?

    After taking a nap, l'm wearing one spray of Chergui, for those soothing notes of dry hay & cherry cough syrup.

    We expect pictures, Kellybelle.

    Only the top notes of one Maison Margiela have enchanted me thus far: Across Sands. The dates smell so real, and the vibe's very much like Hermes Ambre Narguile. But later on it just hits a wall of blah. I read a review today wherein the smeller said MM frags are like a teenage boy who peaks prematurely, and that fits Across Sands. However, I like those first few minutes enough to wish for a decant to apply at bedtime to enjoy that sweet treat.

    Thekelleybelle, I like Jazz Club too. It’s my favorite of the line.

    Teardrop, I love your description of Chergui. It’s fallen out of my favor during the past year but now you’ve given me a hankering to revisit it. I’ll pull out Back to Black while I’m at it. I need some good rainy day fragrances this week.

    I’m wearing Patch Flash today. I love to wear patchouli on Saturdays, especially. It gets me in relaxation mode for the weekend.

    Happy birthday Larimar, Kalli, and Vintage Poison!
