    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..."

    Yes, although I was pretty new to collecting at that time although I already was fascinated by Creed by that point. I was lurker before joining which I think some of you could relate prior to joining BN.

    Hello again. I'm in Kai oil today, and expect to be it for the rest of the summer.

    I've been dealing with my break up from Mr. Cat, who assumes that persistence will win me back (no, it will not) and the unexpected death of my dog (who died in her sleep, napping in the garage while I worked in my garden.) I withdraw like a wounded animal when I am in pain, introvert that I am.

    To the mask wearers: I've ordered Bright Starts Chill & Teethe Teething Toy from Whamazon, a three pack for $4.83. They are water filled and can be frozen, rings with a hole in the middle, and I plan to put them in my mask filter pocket for personal cooling.
