    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..."

    Kicking around the house, sanding and painting trim. I'm going outside for fresh air with my dog--listening to the sleet hit my oak leaves. Tennessee is getting an ice storm. I know tomorrow will be white and beautiful--hard on the trees, though. I think I posted something about being a powder bomb---that bomb is hitting us from the skies. Layering up my Teint de Neige with something warmer--

    Hello, and happiest of birthdays to our dear Perfumed Lady!!!!

    Giving a test-wear to Daison Winter, from a "taste" courtesy of a fabulous BNer.



    I like this one very much, including a slight "orange baby aspirin" edge I'm getting right now from the combination of lavender and one of the pines, I think. I can actually see this one working in all weathers, despite the name.

    Winter fragrance notes: Blue spruce, Pine, Black cardamom, French lavender.

    Terrific Tuesday to everyone!
    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

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, dear Perfumed Lady!

    Cacharel Anaïs Anaïs for me today - vintage, not the current harsh chemical soup. I first wore this in the early 1980s when I enjoyed it for a delicate, feminine floral bouquet. Today, all these many years later, I am getting a dark, dry undertone that lends a sly, subtle carnality to the innocent florals. It now strikes me as an almost perfect unisex scent.

    You folks know how to throw a girl a party! Thanks for all the kind wishes, everyone! I'm so proud to call you all my Basenotes family!

    N.Cal, you smell wonderful! I wanted something cozy but fancy and Mexique nails both. You did my thinking for me! Joining in as your twin today!

    We got snow! Not that I'm super excited about it, but worth noting as I can't remember waking up to this much accumulation on my bday, ever. And, I've had kind of a lot of bdays. More than enough snow to play in; time to extend my yearly invite to JR- it's all yours, Jon; just have to come get it!

    Have a good day, everyone!

    PerfumedLady - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am going to wear Galop d'Hermes in your honor since you and I got to smell it together at the Hermes boutique in Chicago. Was so great to meet you there (and your husband) and share that special day with you and the gang. ((bear hugs))

    tdem1961 - I wear Anais Anais all the time. I love it. And I generally don't like lily notes, but there's something about that one that wears perfectly on me.

    I am back from my NYC trip - back to warm Miami (it was FREEZING in NYC!). I took the day off and I don't go back to work til tomorrow. Although there is a work event that I will attend this evening, at a very swanky restaurant in the Design District (not far from where I live) since my company is hosting a nationwide 'Retreat' in Miami this week. It should be nice and fancy but relaxing and a nice end to my little vacation. I had a blast in NYC (I got to bed late *every* night lol) and I came back with a bottle of Oud by Brooklyn Perfume Co and samples of the new Squid by Zoologist which I'll wear soon. I was bummed that I didn't get to visit the new Scent Bar (too much other stuff planned) but Twisted Lily, in Brooklyn, where I was staying did we just fine. When I was leaving they were starting a private party and the owners of ELDO were there. I smiled and nodded to them on my way out, 2 French guys immaculately dressed, very personable. So that was my NYC 'celebrity sighting' of the trip

    Today I'm in one of my decants that I am getting a lot of use out of:

    Koh-i-Noor by Areej le Dore



    This stuff is so good. I think it's officially sold out though.

    Happy birthday Perfumed Lady! It always snows for my birthday in April, but usually not more than a few inches, and it’s the tail end of winter. Enjoy your snow day!
