    Rolling In Love by Kilian

    Notwithstanding the fatuous branding, this was quite pretty yesterday, if a little too sweet/creamy -- it livened up a bit when I went to the gym, so I though maybe it would be nicer in warm weather. Today, though, it smells the same but there's a vague generic 'chemical' feel to the scent -- sort of like the feeling you get when you smell a car air freshener. Hmmmm.

    Dora, I’m so sorry. That’s just terrible.

    As regards gun culture and endless shootings- I just don’t know what to say anymore in the face of such utter madness.

    You're welcome here, tilleuil.

    Sorry for your friend's loss, Dora, that's so sad.

    Good luck, teardrop!

    Narciso Rodriguez Pure Musc For Her edp , a generic, linear lilac, but oh so pretty. I just love the Narciso Rodriguez line.

    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.

    A light surgical morning at the humane society, but the male cats were all enormous and medium-to-longhaired. Sometimes it's all scrawny kittens, so the change of pace was nice. I came home and put on 24, Faubourg. It gets neglected in my wardrobe, but when I wear it I realize how gorgeous it is.

    Welcome to you, tilleuil. I remember from French class that your user name means "lime", and was tricky to learn to pronounce.
