    Caz, glad you are feeling better. Hoping Shycat is, too. Trilby my heart goes out to your and your son, hoping desperately that the fires can be contained before more lives and property are lost. Kewart, hoping your forehead is looking better each day. (((Quarry)))

    Got a notice from the DMV that the car needs a smog test before registration renewal and with the viral restrictions this may prove difficult. The website says I can go to a muffler repair shop nearby for the test so I might try that sometime this week. I am wearing Mistral Patchouli, one of my favorites because it smells like nothing else I own. I saw that it was reissued under a new name (and probably a new formulation) but I got my bottle before that happened.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    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.

    Joining in the group hug this evening after a totally shitty day in Samsara.

    Healing thoughts to all who need them, especially our dear Q. And Trilby, you & your family stay safe!

    I got a chuckle out of your phrasing, teardrop. In Buddhism, Samsara is the cycle of death and rebirth and involves suffering. So yeah, most days are shitty in Samsara.

    TrilbyLark thoughts of safety and protection to you and yours, and teardrop, so sorry to hear your day was terrible (do we now need to report having days "in Samsara" whether we're wearing the Guerlain frag [which I own and love, btw] or not?)

    And Mike, I'm happy to report (though you may not feel similarly) that the rotten melon part of Givenchy Indecence did ultimately dissipate for me.
    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

    ComDiva - yeah rotting melon isn't cool. lol


    In a bunch of sprays of this one. It's intensely uplifting and at the same time urinous and slightly 'dirty'. Gotta love Roudnitska!

    Djedi bottles are very pricey, you're looking at least a few thousand easily. I have to say Djedi is one of the best things that I've smelled from Guerlain to date. Have you tried any of the rare Guerlains?

    Thanks, you two! Yes, my phrasing was unfortunate, but l was tired & p**sed off. l meant the day was shitty, not my beloved Samsara, which is a comfort scent l often turn to in the evening after a bad day. She never fails to soothe & ground me, but l'd never wear her at work, because l don't want any bad associations to form!
