I had a crazy notion to check out Basenotes after, what, 3 years?, and saw your message from June. Sorry it's taken so long to respond. I guess I just drifted away from Basenotes, as folks often do with forums, but I've never drifted from fragrances. Oh, I've forgotten a lot of the technical details that I once knew, but I ALWAYS wear a scent every day. (Today was Kouros!) I haven't bought anything in years, having enough inventory to last to my death, literally. I did finally run out of Rose 31 last month, which may require action.
I checked the Male Fragrance forum and saw mostly new member names and new fragrances. But some old names did pop up - Hednic, Jon Rogers. Heck, I even saw that Mimi posted recently in the Lounge!
Waves and hugs from me to you.
Thanks for both the "chin up" and the reminder that one is permitted to own more than one decant of leather scent. Your thoughts and choice of words happened to really trip my trigger.
Lovely to meet a fellow Chiefs fan. I've no real connection to Kansas City, having never lived in the States, but I have been a keen supporter for the best part of 25 years. Fingers crossed for a good season.

Next time you're in KC, give me a call. I could be persuaded into returning to Halls for another lookey-see. Might even get you to buy some Success is... something or other - I can't remember the full name!
Hi Shannon! And thanks for the birthday greeting. As for new frags, I just returned from Epcot with a 30 mL bottle of Mitsouko extrait. Expensive, but I figure any serious collector worth his/her salt should have it on the shelf. Also picked up a bottle of Givenchy Gentleman, being on a long term patch kick.
Happy Holidays, shades! And congrats on your new Bond. I just KNEW you and Andy would hook up soon!
As for myself, I decided to forego any fragrance purchases this Christmas. I'm afraid I'm just topped out at this point and need time to enjoy the bottles I already have. Also, I don't see anything right now that I feel that I can't live without (except perhaps a kickass patch like Montale Patchouli Leaves or Profumum Patchouli!).
Hey you, nice to hear from you! I can't find the thread you mentioned but I would love to go but this is my one weekend a month to work and I don't get off until 7:30 or 8 on Sat and Sun. Who all is going and where and when exactly
