    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..."

    Congrats to Mike on his upcoming 38K milestone post!

    Weather is projected to be 37 C for the day. California will be under an intense heat spell in the days ahead.

    For the Friday Sync:

    Fidji (1966) by Josephine Catapano for Guy Laroche

    Might be a little too heavy on the white florals for the heat, but we'll give it a chance.

    Hello & best to all this morning,

    I just read Graham’s note about Basenotes going down for a while. Do you guys have a backup site or location, where you can regroup, while the site is down? I hope so. Someone please PM me, if you see this before we actually shut down.

    Inadvertently syncing in Alien Eau Extraordinarie. Plenty of tiare in here, and a mineral/saline feel (not a marine accord, exactly—more like my precious Eau des Merveilles.

    I’m synching in Profumum Acqua di Sale and wishing I were stretched out in that hammock in Jon’s photo.

    Stay cool if you can, friends. I’m going to enlist assistance of the liquid variety in a few hours!

    ETA: congrats on your upcoming milestone, Mike! Here's to many more!

    Watching the temperature slowly climb to . . . 105 or 106. Ick. I have a perfume delivery coming today, and I worry about what can happen to bottles (especially preowned, like the one coming today), roasting for hours in such heat.

    Time for the cooling conciliation of lemon blossom. Bonjour, Mssr Lutens!

    Hi Khanada- in 2012 we set up a bolt hole in a rather odd place, actually, for occasions when the BN site is down for extended periods. There are only 31 members so far but EVERYONE is welcome to join in. Go to ravelry.com. If you're not a member, set up a free account. Go to community, then Groups, and find group incognito (yeah, it's a dumb name).
