    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.

    Happy Mitsouko Day for those joining in.

    Some of us decided since she is 100 this year the first day of the month we will wear Mitsouko for the rest of the year.

    Good morning all !. Glorious day here. Just been outside watering the plants and there is definitely an autumnal nip in the air which suits me just fine

    Off to the local garden centre for coffee and carrot cake then back for the old firm derby this lunchtime. Will be keeping fingers crossed for Mr teardrop.


    Planning to join the Mitsouko synch later. SotD is Neil Morris - Chasing Autumn.

    One of the better scents from Neil Morris IMO.

    Thanks, Jon! Mr teardrop is still smiling after Rangers made it through to the Europa League the other day, & a win today would be the icing on the cake.

    Thanks N.CAL for the anniversary wishes, l'd totally forgotten!

    We'll be heading out for lunch & beers after the game today, & my SOTD is yet to be decided...

    Happy BN anniversary Teardrop!

    I'm in Nùvol di Llimona today. It's a very nostalgic scent. Something about it reminds me of childhood, but the actual memory is not accessible. Just the feeling.

    Have a great Sunday, all.

    I'm joining the birthday celebrants -- Happy 100th, Mitzi!

    The anniversary bottle is a bit rich for my blood at 650 Euros for 75ml. Pretty, though.

    There sure are a lot of us nine year BNers! 2010 was obviously a banner year for Basenotes.

    Not really a Mitsouko gal, (but swooning over that anniversary bottle all the same-STUNNING!) though I applaud the monthly celebrations! I'm in Un Jardin Apres la Mousson this morning.

    Wonderful morning shave with Proraso (green, and I used the pre-shave cream), followed by an application of the wonderful Baie de Genievre. Just going to make breakfast and espresso followed by cappuccino, and then all ready for Arsenal vs Tottenham.

    Hello all,

    I’m joining the Mitsouko sync today. Hands down my favorite Guerlain.

    I’m trying to summon the energy to wash down the hallway walls and stairwell in preparation for painting. I already removed the wall art and small bookcase and am liking the more minimalist look. My home is evolving to a minimalist aesthetic but it still feels cozy, just less cluttered and stimulating.

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    The game didn't go so well for us today, but we had a good laugh at the pub karaoke & came home feeling a little squiffy. l'd call that a result.

    Congratulations on your nine year Basenotes anniversary, teardrop! Sorry your team didn't win, but it sounds like a good time was had, anyway.

    I am wearing Azemour today and going to find a frame for the artwork I bought yesterday at the art show and a map I bought in Korea. I've lucked into Labor Day sales!

    ETA: I'm adding more stuff to the walls as Trilby Lark is subtracting--mine were rather bare. Somewhere there is a happy medium between visual clutter and boring nothing.

    There's a flash sync with Mitsouko on? I'll spray that this evening.
