    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..."

    Trilby, I'm glad you weren't injured too much. I hope you'll feel good soon.

    I'm wearing La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto Eau de Toilette Florale by Guerlain for Prague synch. Not only has it rose, cherry, leather and other goodies you can smell there, but its name is just wordy enough to remind you than many great authors were born or have lived and created in Prague.

    Hello, friends!

    Spritz and dash for me today, synching for Prague in an "old architecture and churches" fragrance thanks to a recommendation from ine - Amouage Memoir Woman.



    Fabulous Friday to all!

    Memoir Woman fragrance notes: Mandarin, Cardamom, Absinthe, Pink pepper, Pepper, Clove bud, Opulent white blossoms, Rose, Jasmine, Precious dark wood, Frankincense, Styrax, Oakmoss, Castoreum, Leather, Labdanum, Fenugreek, Musk.
    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Afternoon all!

    l have a day off, & after a nice lie-in l'm getting a few things done, before settling down to a little studying.

    Synching in Stella, which rejoined my wardrobe two days ago after a seven-year absence, thanks to TK Maxx.

    Good luck at the dentist's, kewart!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Twilly d’Hermes Eau Poivree today. It smells really, really good!

    I have nothing planned so maybe I’ll get back to reading “Bob Dylan Chronicles Volume One.” It’s a fascinating account of the early folk and blues scene with insights into Dylan’s inspirations and creative process. He’s one of my favorite musical artists.

    Good luck at the dentist, Kewart. Good luck with the day off, Teardrop!

    I had to get up to pee at 9am. My son thought I was awake and that it was a good time to discuss impossible problems, useless interventions, and bouncy plans for the day. Thank God he left to go be young and energetic....somewhere else.

    I had Intense Pulsed Light photo-rejuvenation yesterday at the dermatologist. Weird. Today I look 10 years older. Every little spot of sun damage is now quite dark brown and the top of my cheek/undereye area is swollen and red. I have genuine bags under my eyes. It gets worse but then it gets better.

    I paid somebody to do this to me.

    My day is going to be coffeecentric, filled with sanding knicks in my window trim, painting. I'd say hanging new drapes but I promised myself I would stop lying to people. There no way in hell I'll get those drapes up today.

    sotd: Teint de Neige oil formulation. Thanks, Italy.
