    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.

    This particular synch is a no brainer for me as I have always had an affinity with birds, especially birds of prey. Today's choice is to recall a real life experience. A green outdoor scent evocative of the places they inhabit brings to mind an unforgettable time in the Cairngorms years ago where we saw our first Golden Eagle.

    I didn't know what my spirit animal was so did three separate
    tests online and got three separate answers (butterfly, bird and
    dog!)
    I would wear La Chasse aux Papillons, if I knew where I had put my
    sample but, as I don't, I will wear Le Baiser du Dragon.

    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..."

    No big plans for today. Chocolate truffle cake has already been dug into. I got it more for my husband, than myself. Hoagies, potato chips, and champagne, later on.

    Happy birthday, HoP!!! Wishing you all the best - and enjoy your new birthday Angel!
    And your birthday day seems great! So many tasty things. Have a good day and evening.

    I'm joining Kewart in today's Synch with Le baiser du dragon.

    My parents are coming to visit me tomorrow, and I'm a bit nervous, because I'm paranoid - the numbers are much higher in my city than in their area, and I spend at least 1,5 hours commuting on public buses everyday, and so on and so on. I do feel absolutely alright, but oh what if I'm another asymptomic one and it would be dangerous for them to be around me? I know it's a stupid thought, but I still have to deal with it. It's better to take some risk than to stop living and meeting beloved people at all, I guess. I just want all this bullshit to stop already, but it seems like all the shit is just starting to hit the fan. Ugh. Anyway, I missed my parents and I'm excited to see them.

    Hi, everyone, happy, happy birthday to HouseOfPhlegethon and Somerville Metro Man , who I miss something fierce, and how great to see Ryan yesterday

    I got my syncs mixed up, so am wearing next week's today but will keep it on the down low until then . In a bit, I'll *actually* sync up (like kewart, the spirit animal tests are inconsistent for me, so I've chosen my own: peacock and assorted big cats). Since I've worn the one fragrance I have with peacock packaging recently, my SOTD will be Heeley Esprit du Tigre.




    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Esprit du Tigre / Spirit of the Tiger fragrance notes: Camphor, Peppermint, Spearmint, Winter green, Cardamon, Clove, Black pepper, Vetiver, Cinnamon.
    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

    Many happy returns to the lovely Phleg!

    So many Slavic/Germanic scents here today. And such interesting images in that Le Galion promo photo that Hednic posted: Pegasus, rose, cloud, dove, broken mirror: what could they possibly all mean?

    Alice, you're wise to be worried but it was ultimately your parents' choice to come visit. Just be as cautious as you can.

    No sync for me today -- I'm sticking with a very enjoyable run of Chanel Sycomore EDT.

    Hello everyone and Happy birthday to HoP I took three of those Spiritanimaltests.... I got bear twice and whale once. I personally however feel connected to goats and cats with their strongwilled nature. So I am scenttwin with Tdem in Muscs koublai khan. It IS rather animalic, espesially in the topnotes I get this "dirtnote". I asociate this with goats for some reason, so it fits for today We also got some snow yesterday, so I'm happy with my sotd. I wear it not nearly often enough

    Good to know that PerfumedLady is ok!

    lt's been a hell of a week. Finally relaxing & synching in L'Ombre Fauve after a steak dinner, a couple of glasses of vino & Harry Potter on the TV. Aah, that's better.
