    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.

    Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.

    More sanding of furniture prior to painting is on the cards this
    sunny morning (outside this time as there was too much dust
    in the bedroom after the last session!!)

    I will wear Molinard Vanille.

    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..."

    I see you bought a bottle! What a delight it has been to see that EdT work its magic on you! I'm somewhat your twin today in the EdP, though I agree with you that EdT is the best version overall. I find all versions of No.5 have their charms but EdT is tops.

    Have a good weekend, all!

    Wearing Lancôme Climat on one arm and Guerlain Chant d'Arômes on the other. While they are not exactly the same they are so close to each other that you wouldn't need to have both, but I do.

    I’m extending the incense synch day another day with Ombré Indigo. It’s gray and rainy here and our yard is so muddy ... yucky for me, but a delight for the dog! He is a mess, both literally and figuratively.

    Happy weekend everyone! hugs to all (and go Jayhawks!) ...

    Looking forward to reading your impressions of it in the Zoo Sample Pass thread. Interesting that it disappears after an hour, I wonder if you were experiencing scent fatigue or if your nose got acclimated to the scent. On me it lasted easily a couple of hours.

    WOW!! Such beautiful display. Xerjoff bottles look wonderful, Roja Doves too (I think Jon will like these )

    I'm a bit tempted to want to sample more Xerjoffs that I havent tried yet.
    Amber Gold is something that I want to try. Please do share your impressions of it.
