    Default Let's honour our perfumes!..

    Choose a perfume you want to honour with a picture, which expresses your feelings about it.
    I'll go first.

    taklamakan.jpg

    Taklamakan is a desert in northwest China.

    Quotes from the internet:
    -Popular accounts claim that Takla Makan means "go in and you will never come out". It may also mean "The point of no return" or "The Desert of Death".
    -Because it lies in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, Taklamakan is a paradigmatic cold desert climate. Given its relative proximity with the cold to frigid air masses in Siberia, extreme temperatures are recorded in wintertime, sometimes well below −20 °C (−4 °F), while in summer they can rise up to 40 °C (104 °F).

    If anyone will be interested then this is the Celtic symbol triskelion. This means progress forward and at the same time emphasizes the cyclical nature of our lives: the change of day and night, the cycle from birth to death, etc.

    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.

    Re-posting a picture displayed on a similar thread a few days ago:

    As a quite likely choice for not just one but a few personal favorites, including: l'Occitan, Caron pour un Homme and Creed BDP

    It's so amazing to see how people visualize certain fragrances. Fragrance has such amazing powers.
