    Happy birthday to a haiku master and one of my favourite reviewers whose impressions pretty much always rings very close to mine, just are better said! Have a great day, Redneck Perfumisto!

    I am synching in a Panned by The Guide synch with Le baiser du dragon - a failed oriental I think in the evening I'll grab either Baptême du Feu (sparkling curry! ) or Infusion d’Iris (woody floral), or maybe Mad Madame (rose chypre) or even Black Opium (fruity floral) or Mon Guerlain (lavender vanilla)...I have so many to choose from.

    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Friday, 16th October, 2020


    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..."

    Fabulous Friday, everyone, and a very happy birthday to Redneck Perfumisto!!

    Mike, please keep us posted on the job application - and I echo Jon and Terry - they'll absolutely hire you if they have a lick of good sense!

    In sync today in a loud, badass amber that came with a warning label in the Guide: "Profumum does Amber Sultan. Beware." I'm actually rather fond of the stuff.

    Profumum Fiore d'Ambra



    Fiore d'Ambra fragrance notes: Amber, Opium, Spices.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Angels' Share by Kilian is my SOTD! I bought my bottle when it came out yesterday and really am enjoying this one.
    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage

    teardrop, yesterday, I meant to offer my encouragement about re-starting your dissertation. I suspect you've already vanquished the biggest hurdle -- the act of re-starting itself. I believe in your coming success!

    Good luck with your application, mike -- they're lucky to have someone who cares as much as you do!

    I'm syncing in Miel de Bois again (from a sample). I tried to do the "Panned by the Guide" sync last week, only to discover I'd misread the sync calendar. In keeping with the honey focus, I may sync again later in Hedonist. We'll see!

    Teardrop, do not give up! Rooting for you here.

    Happy Birthday, Red!

    Mike, sending wishes that the higher-ups in your company give you the promotion! But sorry that your team is in a bit of upheaval.

    I looked at the one-star fragrances that I have readily available (Reflection Man, Hiris, and Chanel Gardenia) and didn't want to wear any of them today. I'm in Songes, a four-star, instead.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Mike, it sounds like you're practically a shoe-in Intrigued by Whole30, too; I'll have to look into this. I reintroduced meat back into my diet a couple weeks ago after almost 20 years of vegetarianism, and my body loves it. Definitely a better option for me as I get older and want to maintain my same level of fitness/physical activity.

    Anyhwhay, Calvin Klein Contradiction again today. I'm remembering why I destashed it so many years ago when it first came out-- it tends to induce or exacerbate headaches in me. I definitely have to be feeling and maintaining optimal throughout the day in order to fully enjoy it, which is a bummer because it really is a lovely floral. Maybe just not the thing to wear when I'm hunched over a computer doing homework/procrastinating by screwing around on BN all day
