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

    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..."

    Sending hugs to PerfumedLady at this difficult time.

    Jon,I hope your gourmet meal turned out well!

    My SOTD is YSL Paris. I love roses and we were given one on Paul's
    retirement called New Beginnings, which is a lovely apricot colour. I hope
    I don't kill it.

    Morning all!

    kewart, what a thoughtful gift! May it bloom for many years to come.

    lt's lovely & sunny here but not too hot, & l have a couple of days off. This morning l'm trying my sample of Gelsomini di Capri by Carthusia. lt reminds me a little of Organza...

    Greetings, you gloriously scented peeps.

    Our California coastal fog burned away yesterday into an uncomfortably hot day. It was my luck, of course, to start some Physical Therapy for alleviating symptoms of recently diagnosed pivot arthritis. I really enjoyed the part of the treatment involving being strapped to a giant ice pack. LoL.

    Sotd Tuesday was Carthusia 1681 (from a sample)
    Sotd Wednesday will be Serge Lutens Douce Amere.

    More hugs for PerfumedLady.

    knit at nite, ouch, I hope the therapy helped? It sure sounds a bit funny. Wishing you to feel better soon.

    kewart, I'll second what teardrop said - it's a very thoughtful and beautiful gift, I also hope it will blossom in your garden for years and years.

    We had several weeks of very hot weather, but now it seems to have cooled quite a bit. Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT is very beautiful in this quite-warm-but-not-really-warm-and-sometimes-rainy weather.

    PerfumedLady, you consume my thoughts. There's a poem I won't share in full because it will bring on the waterworks for everyone, but the line that comforts, expressed from the pet's perspective, says "it was heaven here with you." You have given Lily a wonderful life, the unfair part is your pain in saying good-bye.

    Jon, I'm impressed by your culinary aspirations and romantic proclivities.

    "New Beginnings," what a clever gift and so pretty.

    Trilby, I think you should chart a cross-country, connect-the-dots road trip visiting BNers. You could carry a traveling collection of samples that we members would take from/add to as you visit us.

    Errands today, seven stops. Easy and sweet Hanae Mori for my traveling companion.

    Good health and comfy bones wished for all.

    Tempt me not! For starters, I could head up the west coast and drive east to Chicago, then return home via historic Route 66. Hmm...

    I’m wearing Salome again today. Can’t get enough of it!

    Have a good day.
