    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..."

    Today is the 8th anniversary of my relationship with Basenotes, and I thought it would be appropriate to wear the scent that originally brought me here. I was on a nostalgic quest to research Hermès Calèche. It was the first grown-up perfume I ever bought for myself after I left home (during the Pleistocene), and I clearly remember how I agonized about spending almost half of my portion of the rent on a San Francisco flat I shared with three others (I think my share was $70 at the time). It seemed impossibly frivolous.

    I marvel today at the idea of any saleswoman at Saks thinking Calèche was appropriate for an 18-year-old girl. How times have changed!

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Tam Dao again. More room painting today.

    Happy birthday, FiveoaksBouquet!

    Happy birthday, Jon Rodgers!

    Congratulations on your BN anniversary, Cook.bot! Ah, downtown San Francisco was a great place back in the day. Still is. I have an old set of Streets of San Francisco DVDs that I occasionally watch for nostalgic purposes to see street scenes as they once were.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    Hello, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JON!!!!



    Happy BN-a-versary, cook.bot, and FiveOaksBouquet, happy birthday and many happy returns!

    SOTD is my choose-randomly-from-the-sample-bag sample pick, Indult Manakara. Tonight I will wear Robert Piguet Knightsbridge

    Manakara notes: Rose, lychee.

    Knightsbridge notes: Nutmeg, Rose, Orris, Sandalwood, Leather, Tonka bean.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hello! I’m wearing SL Fleurs d’Oranger today. My wardrobe says it was worn a year ago ... but wearing it today, it feels so comfortable and familiar. I would not have guessed it had been so long between wearings.

    Thank you so much for all the kind comments and “welcome back” posts! The camaraderie here is one of Basenotes’ best assets! It was very much missed.

    Happy birthday wishes to Jon and Five Oaks!
