    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..."

    Echoing this sentiment, especially as today is a difficult day for Mr teardrop.

    Hello everyone Today is another sunny, but not really warm day. June is defenitely not " Midsummer" where I live Really happy about the nice weather and midnightsun, though I wasn't quite sure about what to wear today, but I'm in the mood for Messe de minuit, so think that will be my Sotd. In Norway we don't celebrate Father's day today, but congrats to all the fathers out there anyhow. Also hugs to those who miss their dad on this day.

    Oh, this sentiment really hit home. Thank you, ineespenes.

    Im wearing Oud Ispahan again today. Lovely, really. Were going up to the Veterans hospital to visit the FIL for Fathers Day. I like going to Los Angeles for almost any reason. Im a city girl at heart.

    Have a good day.

    Happy Father's Day to our Basenotes dads and more hugs to all those missing theirs. I miss mine a lot. I wish he and David had been able to meet.

    I've spent the last 12 hours honoring my dad's love of big, oriental and chypre fragrances: the skanked up orange blossom leather of Cuir Cannage (I got it EVERYWHERE decanting last night; our kitchen smells fantastic), and now I'm going all-out this morning with 2 sprays of Diaghilev Extrait (big thank you to foxbins) and 1 spray of Bogue MAAI on the back of my right hand. They're very different interpretations of a style I've been drawn to all my life. My dad would love them both, too.

    I still laugh at my poor mom and dad's fragrance disconnection. She's a muguet and lilac-loving delicate floral type, and he every bottle he bought her was either a massive oriental or chypre. I don't think she ever wore any of them. I snagged them and took them with me to college.

    Quarry, my dad adored Blazing Saddles, sort of in spite of himself, if you know what I mean. (He was the dad who, even on weekends, always wore slacks and a sport jacket. My whole life, I never saw him in jeans.) Thank you for that clip.

    For the evening I'm testing Siwa by Memo. I love vanilla and spices so I found this rather nice It kind of reminds me of how I remember Dior Addict used to smell.

    Happy Fathers Day to all our BN dads.
    I wish comforting thoughts to those missing dear Dad.
    ExtremeK, I don't think I ever met a man like your dad, but I'd have liked to have known him.
    Vegan daughter is here cooking and baking for Fathers Day. It's a gift to me not to have to cook.

    New Haarlem--glorious cinnamon buns and coffee.

    This weather. We can't seem to go more than three days without rain. At least it's not hot. The forecast may as well remain: muddy with a chance of clouds.

    I only smelled this on paper when I was visiting Neimans. That was one that stood out to me from the collection. Vanilla and cinnamon very appealing.

    I think this is the first time since joining basenotes in 2005 that Ive ever taken a photo inside my fragrance wardrobe.
    Since I keep any packaging for my fragrances, its a bit jumbled.
    Ill straighten things up & photograph. I probably need to do that for insurance purposes anyway.
