    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..."

    Congratulations, NCal on your 43,000 posting milestone!
    Also to ClockworkAlice and Kotori for their Basenote birthdays and
    HOP for your milestone! So much to celebrate today.

    I am in synch with Mauboussin for its intoxicating
    fruits and feeling of warmth and plushness. I am using this perfume so much
    that I have just ordered another 100m of the EDT.

    Hello, friends, and happy 2020 from me (finally)!

    Big congrats to N. Cal., hednic and Kotori for their posting milestones, and happy Basenotes-a-versary to ClockworkAlice and HoP!!!

    Continued wishes for safety and calm on the home front to Cuddlecat (and anyone else Down Under) and ryan, and general good wishes to all as we start the new year.

    We are still recovering from our New Year's day bash - about 150 people stopped by (and many stayed!). My brother and his family are still here for the morning, and it has been FANTASTIC to see them, but tonight Dear Husband and I have a hot date with some of the many delicious leftovers and a movie. Something fluffy that is mostly funny and doesn't require thinking.

    In sync today in Krigler Established Cognac 66. I'm always hesitant to wear this one to work for fear someone will think I'm drinking on the job... But it's beautiful, and reminds me of the NY Sniffapalooza (I think) where I did the bottle split with SomervilleMetroMan - Who I miss seeing here, but I believe he's doing well.



    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Established Cognac 66 fragrance notes: Cognac, Apple, Indian Tagette, Caramel, Oak.
    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 all,

    It’s Tam Dao again today. Sadly, I discovered I have no boozy fragrances for the sync. I’m surprised because I’m a dedicated whiskey lover.

    I’ve been pushing myself the last week to log 10,000 steps a day on my Fitbit. That means I have to go for walks when I don’t feel like it or am busy doing something else. I’ve been varying my route to make it more interesting and have discovered some lovely home gardens nearby. I’m starting to notice the benefits of the consistent increased exercise. I incorporate mindfulness practice into my walks as well.

    Congratulations, N.CAL, on your posting milestone. I like the way your posts encourage discussion and interaction.

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    I'm copying Inees in vintage Ô de Lancôme for the sync, because its fizzy gin/herbal effect is appropriate since it's still too damned warm here for winter.

    Wow! So many milestones! Congrats to N.Cal, hednic, kotori, and clockwork!

    Thanks, for all the congrats for my milestone, y'all! I've learned so much more about fragrance, thanks to you fine people! ♥

    On to Kokorico by Gaultier, for the synch. It has an odd gourmand / boozy thing going on, to my nose.
