    Welcome to Basenotes Batholumew!
    Hope we hear from you again and that you enjoy your time on here.

    I am wearing Bulgari Omnia. I now have several back-up bottles of
    this discontinued little gem.

    Jon, I feel the same as you about the easing of lockdown. We have had it for so
    long now that venturing out of it will be very strange indeed, Baby steps....

    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..."

    I hope the lockdown release portends good things for the future!

    I am wearing Mohur extrait this morning after I got an email from NV that prices will be going up. I have enough Mohur for the forseeable future but I might need more Bombay Bling. It's a glorious day here, sunny and bright, but cold. Temps were freezing last night and people who planted tender crops and didn't cover them may lose them.

    Happy Sunday to all!

    I've just learned that my favorite perfume blogger died this past Wednesday. Basenoters will know him from his reviews here under the username "jtd", and his blog was ScentHurdle.com. His reviews were the first ones that drew me to Basenotes; he was invariably gracious in every interaction I had with him, and his writing on perfume was not only insightful, but wonderfully perceptive about the place of fragrance within its social context. I'm going to miss him terribly.

    I tried to think of a favorite scent of his to wear today in his memory, but he had so many. I finally chose the one that he was on record as saying he would choose if he could only have one perfume.

    Cook.bot, I am so sorry to hear such awful news. I read a great many of his erudite reviews here and was always in awe of his knowledge. RIP.

    Cook.bot, sorry that his voice is lost to you.
    Mike, maybe you remember Mr. Q from New Orleans Saks?

    Started seeds today: cukes, basil, cauliflower, zucchini, and four varieties of tomatoes. The lettuce has sprouted outside. The rhubarb has leapt to life. The strawberry bed is edge-to-edge leaves. Soon I'll be direct sowing cilantro, radish, and beans. It's officially the growing season.
