    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..."

    Just a quick post, for now. It has been an exhausting day, but not an unpleasant one.

    I’m wearing Lolita Lempicka Si Lolita Eau de Minuit to bed. It’s not a comfort scent, in the traditional sense, but it makes me feel comfortable. Our dog, Little Buddy, is already in position. Snuggling up with him, Iusually fall asleep within a couple of minutes.

    Sending Jon huge congratulations on his B'notes milestone.
    Your posts are always a joy.

    It's another nondescript, cloudy morning here and I really
    miss the sunshine. My SOTD is Ferre 2005 (the iris one by
    Pierre Bourdon.)

    I think you could make an argument that Jon, along with the Basenotes Robot, is the very backbone of the SOTD thread. Here's to at least 28,000 more!

    Speaking of the Robot, his/its scent today looks intriguing: Seagrass & Seahorses notes: Kelp, Grass, Hay, Ivy, Lily, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Blue Tansy, Bergamot. I'd sniff that.

    The extreme heat is driving me into a perfume hiatus, when many scents make me a bit nauseated. One of the few that doesn't will get an outing today: Dune by Dior.

    jujy54 - I forgot to comment on your post yesterday. How nice that you got to go to the museum...I can't wait til ours opens up. A couple days ago I went running next to the building (they have lots of stairs for exercise) and it made me miss it even more. And your drawings (and memories of Paris) are awesome! Happy belated Bastille Day!

    Kotori - nice to see you posting! ((waving))

    I had a credit to use on Audible, so I’m listening to The Perfect Scent. It’s making me want to wear something create by Jean-Claude Ellena. So, I’m adding a spritz of Jour d’Hermes, something sunny. I’m getting an herbal, aromatic quality from it that I’ve never noticed before. Almost like bay leaves.

    Yes, congratulations Jon, on the quantity and quality of your posts. Very enjoyable.

    My SOTD is MFK Grand Soir. It's completely out of sync with the weather, time of day, and occasion. I just felt like smelling beautiful.

    Have a good day.
