    RHM, happy birthday to you! Many happy returns and have a great day!

    Today I wore Wild Wind by Gabriella Sabatini - a light eau de cologne spray I got as a gift from my mom when I was a teen and always disliked it despite loving the name (later I learned it's because of ylang ylang, I can't stand it in bigger quantities), but at today's extreme heat (it was around +34 C yesterday and today) it actually fit very well.
    Later in the day I went shopping with mom and there was a bottle of La Vie Est Belle En Rose by Lancome on the counter for everyone to try in one clothes shop, so we both sprayed some. I was afraid it would be overpowering in the heat, but it was actually quite lovely sweet rose. Not something I would buy for myself, the whole La Vie est Belle line is a bit too sweet and romantic to me, but it was nice to try it anyway. I think I can see why it's so popular.

    Happy Birthday RHM! And love love love the nail color!

    I've been a bit MIA -- it's moving week. The movers come tomorrow, my stuff goes into storage, and I head up to the Seattle burbs for a summer with my brother's family on Saturday. Hard to know what I will need "now", "soon", and "not for a while." I'm probably fretting about it far too much. It's hard to believe I'm leaving San Francisco. I'm a bit melancholy about it, but excited too. Normal stuff.

    SOTD is Amouage Gold Woman. I found a sample in a purse I don't use very often and sprayed liberally. It's lovely but on me not long lasting.

    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.

    Does it smell a bit like green tea to you? A nice aromatic scent as I recalled.

    I hope the excitement overtakes melancholy post haste, (((Hazel))). At least you're relocating for the summer months. Hard to beat the Pacific NW in the summer.

    Happy Hat Trick, RHM! (Hockey pun intended) Your birthday, the Blues win, and 5,000 posts. Quick! Go buy a lottery ticket!

    Dammit, Mike, if I had known today would be a Galop day for you, I would have joined you! Such a great fragrance, and I have no doubt you smell amazing. (wink, wink back!)

    My concentration has been complete crap all day. I had a 13-conference-call day yesterday. I think I'm still brain dead and, frankly, completely deserving of an easy day. Plus, it's too gorgeous outside. I think I'll shut down the laptop and pack it in.

    I'm wearing Bee's Bliss.

    foxbins, LOL at the first line of elephants. Maybe that can be a new standard of measurement since the metric system is apparently a Communist trick.

    Oh, yes. Could be working, maybe should be working, but it's nice outside. The down side of the home office.

    Hazel, I hope you get yourself settled quickly because, selfishly, we like to see you here. Hoping Trilby can make time for us again soon, too.

    RHM, congrats on, and thanks for, the 5,000 posts!

    Only now applying sotd (near 5 p.m.), so better call it sote. Frankly, Maison Margiela Across Sands has been my bedtime scent every night for weeks. Num, num, num, num. My interpretation: sweet dates, amber/oud. Online product description varies a bit.

    Barneys' note list::

    • Top: Blackcurrant Buds, Pimiento Berries, Moss Accord
    • Middle: Cistus Concrete, Sap Accord, Fir Balsam
    • Base: Incense Oil, Patchouli Oil, Indonesia Atlas, Cedarwood Oil

    Sephora note list:
    Cinnamon, Osmanthus, Davana, Date Accord, Everlasting Flower, Cistus Absolute, Oud, Patchouli, Incense Essence

    SotE is the crazy wonderful ELdO Nombril Immense, courtesy of my new bottle. I've wanted it literally FOR YEARS (like since 2010), but there was always something I wanted more. In the post-Chicago fragrance glow, I just said to hell with it and finally bought it. And MAAI. I couldn't help myself.

    Hazel5 - so nice to see you posting, you've been missed. So will you be moving *back* to San Fran after the Summer? Enjoy your family & Seattle. I've never been

    Quarry - glad to hear your husband is healing & so is Giancarlo, he can wear socks now (a big deal, actually). I forgot to say I really enjoyed the pics you posted before. And I'll have to try that Maison Margiela scent. I haven't had any luck with that line, but clearly you've gone bonkers over this one.

    foxbins - only on Basenotes can someone type "Despite spraying lavishly each time I wear it, my bottle level is still above the first line of elephants." and have it completely understood by most of the readers. I swear. lol. We have our own language here...I love it.

    At some point in the warm, humid, stormy day the Hermes vanished. Oh...I took a midday shower too. Duh. It was a long day. I came home and ordered thai from this amazing place near my house called "Cake" and I just gorged myself on a huge plate of Chinese broccoli and Fried Chicken Fried Rice. ((rubbing my belly)) I need a hot shower and a whole bunch of iris (I've been reading Starblind's thread and now I want to smell like iris!). I'll dive into my decant/sample that was gifted to me of:

    Dinner was amazing. Stan (my husband) & I are enjoying a scotch & water before we collapse in a food coma.
    A delivery was on the porch when I arrived home. God bless Hannah our lovely Dior SA at SAKs in Chicago.
    Samples of Poison edt & extract arrived along with a gift; Diorissimo extract.
    My plan is to offer to swap the parfum, which my sister adored, for the edp she took home in error.
    SOTE is Poison parfum. I’ve managed to clear the room with this tuberose monster.
    Thank you again for all the wonderful comments & well wishes.
    And to CuddleCat, my hometown team won the national hockey championship aka the Stanley Cup.
