    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..."

    Jon, enjoy your break.
    Hugs to those with splinters and other worries (( ))

    My SOTD is Feminite du Bois.
    I am taking the ederly people, in the group I run on a Thursday, to see a Christmas tree festival
    and Xmas Craft Fair in a local church. It always makes me get into the
    festive mood and from now on it's all one round of parties, meals out,
    concerts (Messiah) and visits from relatives.

    We are getting our tree this weekend.

    Hello, and congrats to our wonderful Jon on his Basenotes-a-versary, and to our wonderful N.Cal on another BN milestone!

    Grabbed a sample of By Kilian Dark Lord from my work-your-way-through-these-samples-already bag.



    I tend to think of the By Kilian line as generally dark and with big sillage - this one is a bit smoky/leathery and stays fairly close to the skin on me - I've heard comparisons to Gucci Guilty Black (I'm figuring Pour Homme), but all I have is a mini of GGB Femme, so may have to make a lunchtime trip to Sephora to compare. It's okay, but not knocking my socks off.

    For sock-knocking-off (and for today's milestone-makers), I'll be putting a little of my precious sample of Tihota between a few of my knuckles to sniff throughout the day, and my SOTE will be Robert Piguet Knightsbridge.

    Terrific Thursday to all!

    Dark Lord "Ex Tenebris Lux" fragrance notes: Bergamot, Pepper, Jasmine, Rum, Leather, Vetiver.

    Okay, update on By Kilian Dark Lord: It's growing on me. The slightly-smoky-leather and jasmine are playing off each other really nicely on my skin now (unusual for me with jasmine!). I've decided to move my sample to the "Tried-and-want-to-wear-again" bag.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Chanel No. 22 again today. I’m attending physical therapy for my knee and, happily, it’s working. I’m also attacking a list of procrastination items this month. The exterior of the house is finally getting painted, I resolved a billing dispute, and I sold a redundant car. It feels good but there are a few more tasks.

    Happy BN Anniversary, Jon! It’s nice to have such an extraordinary gentleman in our midst. I raise a toast with Belgian beer!

    I'm so glad to have Sova back in my collection. I previously sold it to help pay for wedding related expenses a few years ago. It's such a perfect winter fragrance.

    My presentation went really well, thanks again for all your good luck wishes! We won't be back in Uni until January, & l will need to do another short piece of written work as well as a lot of reading before then, but for now l can kick back & relax! The tree is going up tomorrow.

    Belgian's give me a splitting headache for some reason. I'll be joining with a West Coast Style IPA tonight from a local brewer here in the Chicago area.
