    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.

    I'm just going to stay blonde but I did like a look that paired a similar green with ends of hair that appeared as if they'd been dipped in aqua blue. Such a summery fantasy look. I need a "victim" to let me try it out.

    Taking a closer look at that Rene Grau ad, I wonder if she's supposed to be a mermaid? Though a mermaid in opera gloves and pearls seems a bit weird. Not that a mermaid isn't weird anyway...

    Q, I was flying into Chicago and doing public transport. My son decided not to come home so my plans changed as I needed to drop off the dog in Kentucky. Then I got back from the dry cleaners and his car was in the driveway. He had a job interview that went well so he was in a more expansive mood and I'm taking his 2012 Altima because it has a CD player.

    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..."

    Good day!

    Spritz and dash for me - Atelier Cologne Cafe Tuberosa, from the last bits of a sample from somewhere.




    Suspecting this one will be right up my alley when I'm feeling gourmand-y, but we'll see!

    Terrific Thursday, everbody!


    Café Tuberosa fragrance notes: Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, Guatemala cardamom, Rose absolute, Indian tuberose, Espresso coffee accord, Ivory Coast cacao, Madagascan vanilla.

When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
