    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..."

    Randomly decided to test out Straight to Heaven. Just sprayed it, not too sure what to think...

    Edit: I love the smell, but reads too masculine on me. I want to get it for my boyfriend now. I'd love it on him.

    The more I wear this, the more I come to the conclusion this fragrance comes close to perfection.

    It's so cool you chose the scent to commemorate your BN-versary!
    Roma was also one of the first scents I noted myself here on Basenotes to try, and it is good, but it wasn't as good on me as I imagined. It's so good to be able to test scents in the stores, as I could have accumulated so many blind buys I assumed to be perfect just to see they don't work on me otherwise!

    It's hard to keep track. There's quite a few here that joined in January. Some upcoming ones and recent ones: Robin is on the 18th and then there was RichMan'sOldSpice which was the 12th, (happy 5th belated BN anniversary to him )

    Wearing Landscape In Suffolk by Possets. It isn't in the directory and it is discontinued. Alas, when my sample is gone, it's gone.

    After 10 days of hospital treatment, I'm glad that I can use perfume again for the first time in 2020!

    Thanks, tdem! The dental treatment is all done again for now, at least until my next six-monthly check-up. The walk back against the wind & rain was a battle, but l'm dried off & cosy again now, & ready for an afternoon of pottering.

    @Hazel5, thank you!
    That's the way it is in hospitals. As a patient, it is forbidden to use perfumes in the hospital room! It's practically the same as smoking in the hospital room. So understandable!

    That has been my reaction to everything by Byredo. I've given them a fair crack of the whip but the house does nothing whatsoever for me.
