  • Happy Birthday!

    Hi Warum. I've seen you've been curious about TDC After Midnight. I thought I could share my experience about it too, if you're interested just check out my blog. I wrote about After Midnight in one of Monday Quick Sniffs posts.
    Yes it was the main flagship store of Neiman Marcus. If you go please take photos, it's always gorgeously decorated. Enjoy!
    I took Sociology few semesters back and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't mind to attend Women Studies - being a woman I am still quite mystified myself ;). I am also taking online classes, it sure is convenient. My university is not too faraway - 20 miles or so - but time and gas add up. Plus, I am not really fond off sitting at the lecture - my attention starts to wonder to perfumes, perfumers, and notes. Nuda sounds very good, I do like myself a heady jasmine. :)
    Oh, my goodness, I am so jealous!!! It's a vacation of my dreams - perfume shopping with fellow BNers, I can't imagine something more fun to do! I am so going to next BN meet up as long as it's not overseas and as such beyond our price point. So you are a torturer, then...excuse me, ahem, I meant a teacher ;). No, I am just kidding, its a wonderful thing you do! And trying to make it more fun for students, I am sure they will appreciate that! :). May I ask what are you teaching? If you haven't got Ophelia, what did you get while in Vegas?
    lol, not thinking..haha Christian Dior, oh well! I still don't know where to try it, haha.
    Masculine huh? Like patchouli type masculine? I couldn't blind buy it anyway lol..couldn't blind buy much of anything right now, lol. Interesting, the notes read that it would be sort of feminine. Maybe it's the spicy rose? I don't live anywhere near a Chanel boutique to try..may have to look where I can find a sample.
    No hurry to get to the p.o.- I wanted to check first to be sure you weren't leaving right away. Just went out this morning, so probably will be early next week.

    Hawaii, O.? How wonderful! But I know you must be so tired from all the recent travel. Take good care of yourself and rest up so you can enjoy the beautiful islands!
    Yay, you're home! Will you be there for a while now? I have a little letter to send you! I am so extremely jealous but HAPPY that you and Al were able to make time for a chat in Vegas! I love the thought of two of my favorite people together. We are deep into a major home renovation, no traveling for me for some time to come. You will both have to fill me in so I can live vicariously through your trip!
    So sorry, it took me a while again!!! My new semester just started and between making heads and tails of my homework and wrapping up huge Weil pass I was a bit overwhelmed. :( Santa Fe was great! It's nice to be around people, especially, creative and bit strange ones that seem to overrun this city. We listened to some nice rhythm and blues in the evening, had some very stiff James Bond worthy martini, and danced a bit next to a gentleman wearing bright red patent leather shoes...
    Thank you so much for your warm communication and sorry it took me a while to reply. We just came back from weekend in Santa Fe: it was fun but very exhausting. :) Yes, decants are a saving grace, especially when they are finished and I discover that I didn't need it so badly after all. But I admire Heeley's reserved and sophisticated style. If I win a lottery I will buy his whole line! So you like jasmine? Have you tried Jasmin de Nuit? If you have, what did you think about it? Of course it is more about spice than jasmine :D
    You do add much here; it's the truth! Sorry spring was so crazy for you. Hope you are doing all you can to take good care and rest up- and that you'll get to enjoy the rest of the summer!
    Missed you, too O.! Hope you know we are always keeping your spot warm. It's so good to see you around here again- the place isn't the same without you!
    Hello dear gel! Yes my niece and I are "girlz" indeed. She is a sweetie. It seems that at age seven, you want to be "cool" and all good things are "cool", whereas all things that are not cool are "weird". I have two bigger nieces too, aged fourteen and sixteen. Their latest object of desire is Chanel Nail Polish!!
    Thank you so much for your touching words on Friday's SotD thread - it was so nice to read your message.
    Love your posts too.
    Stay fragrant, Warum.
    Olga, thanks!!! How is OR treating you? I need to make it up that way again; haven't been in 9 years. Have a blessed holiday season :)
    Please,any time you're feeling down and missing Jao,remember that the same kind offer you gave me applies to you as well.Talk to me about your sweet one any time you like!They were family-this will not heal overnight.O.,we're in the same sad boat together but at least I'm in it with someone who smells fantastic!
    Oh,goodness-all this time we've chatted here&there without knowing how similar our households were!Lily is definitely my husband's cat;the order of things around here went:Mama's boy,Daddy's girl.It feels very lonely to watch the pair of them go about their regular routines together,doesn't it?It will be nice to have more time to spend with Lily but she will never love me the way she loves him!Cats-you can bring them into your home but THEY choose who "their" person will be.Hugs to you,I've still got some tears to shed;I'll be crying for you&Jao,too.
    I just messed up and posted a reply to you on my own page!Please stop by and read it when you have the time.What a goofball I am!
    Big hugs to you O. and thank you so much for your kind words.I'm feeling very sad but I know I did the right thing and over time it will get easier.It's so wonderful knowing there are people like you in the world-and that I have you as a friend.
    Just read your SotD for Monday, I'm so sorry to hear about your toe!! I did that about five years ago and spent a couple of weeks wearing flip flops and walking funny. It was no fun at all! I hope it feels better soon and that you get waited on hand and foot by your husband!! Take care!
    Hello :)

    It took way too long... but I have found the sample you wanted :)
    I even have a decant if you want it!

    Please let me know :)

    HUG, Guusje
    Clear some space in your Private Messages, please.

    Have not seen you around a couple of days, staying busy with your mom? How are you guys doing?

    Anyhow, I am done testing the Profumi del Forte line of fragrances. You can read more what I think about them in our SotD post today. Please instruct me what to do with them now.

    Have K. sent you the Rosines? Have you had a chance to smell any of them yet?

    Are you guys still planning to go SF this coming weekend? How far away is it from you?

    Have a nice day and please let me know.
    Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way. ~Florence Scovel Shinn
    Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances. Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
    Good Friday is a day of repentence and prayer, a day to remember Gods sacrifice for us, a day to ask forgiveness, a day to renew our relationship with God.
    “Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”

    It seems my swap list is too long for this page. If you want, you can send me your email address and I'll attach it there.
