    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.

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

    Guerlain's Derby. No one rocked a derby better than this man.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics
