    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    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..."

    ... my recommendation for the ladies today - a real women's fragrance - and not just a counter numbers raiser with a men's fragrance:

    Hello, all, and happy BN-iversary, hednic! Twelve years - impressive, both for you and Basenotes. Here's to many years more in your company!

    So many great choices by everyone for for kbe's pepper accord today... I'm in sync as well in Lurk TBP V1.



    Simple but elegant. Love this! Thanks to Synchronized Fridays for the reminder. Fantastic Friday, everyone, and counting down to wine o'clock!

    TBP V1 fragrance notes: Floral accord, Black pepper.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I salute you, Mr. Hednic [wrist to nose].Thank you for your service.

    I'm wearing Marni, composed by Daniela Andrier. Notes: bergamot, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, pink pepper, rose, incense, vetiver, cedar and patchouli.

    Will share the "house of potter" with Teardrop. May harvest some prairie seed. Plan to make a pot of chili. May start the day reading a little of The Scentual Garden. Sounds like a lovely day, doesn't it? Yet I suffer self-inflicted guilt that I always should be doing something more--something hard and unpleasant. If anyone can recommend how to get over this long-held belief system, please set me straight.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Q, l know what you mean, but please don't be so hard on yourself. Listen to your body, & if it's telling you you need rest, then get some rest. You are retired after all, & the only person putting pressure on you is you!

    Moved onto Ambre Passion for the rest of the day.

    Wearing a fragrance that I've been working on the last couple of days...it has Sichuan Pepper so I guess I'm in synch! Always nice when that works out...

    Note Profile so far: Pomander (orange & clove), candle wax, frankincense, benzoin, caramel, apple, sandalwood, cedar, rose, tobacco, pepper, cinnamon aldehyde and myrrh.

    I'm attempting to create a fragrance that encapsulates "Memories of Christmas Past." I'm not sure if it's my own aging or a sign of the times but Christmas seems to have lost the ceremonial and majestic feel that it once had and now it feels like a distant memory. Now, it's crazy over-commercialization and advertising campaigns that are kicking off as we speak...the holiday still feels special but that luster has been worn down in my eyes. I want this to remind me of those Christmas moments growing up.
