    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Happy Summer Solstice to everyone! (Or at least everyone in the northern hemisphere.)

    Every time a solstice or equinox rolls around, I'm reminded of Trilby Lark and her former practice of only allowing herself to purchase full bottles four times a year, at the turn of the seasons. I was very impressed by that; it seemed so sensible. I often thought of employing that system for myself. In fact, I've been thinking about it for seven years now.

    For the summer sync, I'm going with my much-beloved Ninfeo Mio by Annick Goutal. What's more summery than tomato leaves and ripe figs?

    Morning all, & Happy Solstice, everyone!

    l'm in synch with Golden Paradise fragrance mist by Hawaiian Tropic. l bought this bottle last year & didn't try it properly until today, but it's a good substitute for the feeling of lying in the sun when the weather isn't up to the job.

    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..."

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Copper Skies by Kerosene. I’m getting ready for some mad LA freeway driving to visit my veteran in the hospital. He really looks forward to my visits. I pack beverages and music for my hours on the road. I’m pulling the trigger on my new Z Car this afternoon. If I’m gonna be driving a lot, I’m gonna do it in style! All that can fit in the back of the new car is my Yeti roadie cooler, a carry on size suitcase, and maybe a small duffle. I love forced minimalism. Now my husband’s little Honda Fit will be the BIG car in the family. Ha! Ha!

    Have a good day.

    I’ll synch later. For now it’s Kiehl’s Original Musk. Today it smells a lot like Matin Calin by CSP!

    Good afternoon all !. Seriously considering chilling a sauvignon blanc and joining HouseOfPhlegethon later. A good cause for celebration with a week's leave on the horizon and no work now until 1st July

    Ah, that's sweet! I think tonight I may try out a, [new for me], cocktail called White Lady. It's gin, triple sec, and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

    I'm wearing Acqua Viva and reading a book titled "Plants You Can't Kill" hoping to put some color in the front yard.

    Excellent choice! I had a miniature of that years ago - more like decades, actually.
