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

    Good morning everyone!
    Wishing everyone a good week.
    We are starting to have a proper Indian Summer today, so no need for my leather jacket and gloves today. But it's already dark in the mornings, too.

    Good morning and wishing all those still working a
    productive, stress-free week.
    It's always harder to get up for work on these darker
    mornings!
    I had a dreadful, almost sleepless night, due in part I think to the
    full moon. It wreaks havoc with my moods.
    I am still in my nightwear and trying to come round with strong coffee.

    I am also testing Smeraldo by Sylvaine Delacourte. This is the first one of her
    musc collection that I really like. Wonderful top notes of yuzu, angelica and
    pear. It's quite green and very smooth. I hope to smell the rose note soon along
    with the cedatwood, hawthorn and musk. At the moment it reminds me of Bulgari
    Omnia Green Jade for some reason.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Eau de Parfum
    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 and best to everyone. Thanks to HoP and Teardrop for the well wishes. Xo
    Hazel, very sorry to hear of your friend’s sad news. You will be a great comfort to her.
    Kewart the full moon interferes with my sleep patterns, too. I hope you can rest up today.

    I haven't read sotd since Friday, so am simply sending out powerful vibes of whatever kind you need, my sweeties.

    When I'm on the desktop later this week, I'll post more about the Merz meet-up. Suffice it to say that my chauffeur Spirit Rose and I ran a perfumista marathon. After Merz, we hit Hermes, Chanel, Lalique, Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Gucci, Bloomies, Dior, Prada, and then circled back to revisit Hermes and Chanel. Despite an abundance of opportunities (duh), neither of us bought a bottle of anything. The fragrances that spoke to us tended to be springtime-type scents, so maybe we have to force ourselves to go back in the spring?

    Meanwhile, back here on the home front, I have a little design work to do for my one remaining client, the old tv just gave up its plasma ghost and we need to study up on the next generation of tv technology to replace it, and we have to butcher the 10-point buck my husband got with his crossbow yesterday. He's ecstatic with his success.

    After going a-sampling and affirming how many frags out there I dislike, my appreciation for my wardrobe only grows. Today I will revel in the smooth, classy, soft cocoa-floral cloud that is Guerlain Coquin and reward whoever trails my wake with their grocery cart at Woodman's.

    Good morning, good smelling people. I'm in ELDO Cologne, from a sample, applied with the oiled wet washcloth method*, not spritzed or dabbed. Too clean and too much rose for me, I feel kind of like clean laundry, but not a bad workday scent.

    *(for smells I think I'd rather have very faint and diffuse, generally anything involving rose, I like to get a washcloth wet and put some unscented body oil on it and whatever the perfume is, squeeze it out and use that damp washcloth to dry off after a shower, it works really well, light hint of oil and smell and gentle exfoliation.)

    Hello all,

    I’m going back to Guerlain Heritage today. It’s all I really want to wear lately. I love the chilly mornings and it will be a little cooler during the day today as well. It’s temporary as it’ll be back up into the 80s the remainder of the week.

    Have a good day!

    Kewart, I'm so sorry about your poor night's sleep. I hope tonight's rest with be easy and restorative.

    ClockworkAlice, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Thinking of you.

    I am wearing Slowdive; it's errand, gym, and find a new cleaner day. Because I'm not very thrilled to do any of those things, I'm making myself a bread pudding this afternoon.
