1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yesterday I wore Le Labo The Noir 29 - a very potent creamy, smoky, and figgy fragrance, but not so much tea, which should b no surprise to those who've smelled at least five Le Labo fragrances.

    I also wore some vintage (metal cylinder stem) Dior Homme last night and was once again very appreciative of its quality in both composition and quality of ingredients. Now, on Fragrantica and in discussions on Basenotes, there is supposed to be a heavy leather component, but I never have noticed it. I wonder if it's a sleight of hand by the perfumer.

    Concerning Zoologist, I kind of liked Bat when I smelled it. I love the concept of this house, especially with Bat because I remember as a kid going to caves up in the Ozark Mountains and loving the smell of them because of the bat guano. It always was so intriguing. Zoologist also has put their fragrances in very nice bottles.

    Today I wore Ormond Jayne Black Gold - a very intriguing and high-quality fragrance with lots of juniper and rose.

    Trumper's Ajaccio Violets for me today. Slightly sweet but very soapy and powdery. Glad I picked up a sample rather than committing to a full bottle.

    L,

    My Bleu de Chanel EDT is empty. Please recommend something similar to replace it.

    Thanks

    Today I am wearing Diptyque Oud Palao. This is such a good fragrance, with its dark and dusty rose and well-blended synthetic oud. It may be natural oud, but I doubt it and it doesn't make a difference anyway because of the excellent integration of components.

    I wore Annick Goutal Vetiver last night. This is one of the best and certainly unique vetivers available (I cannot vouch for the current formula and bottle - I own an older one) with the shocking-to-me blast of sea salt, which adds an angularity to the very warm and rich vetiver at the heart, which is then in the dry-down supported by a beautiful and rich tobacco note. I mean, that's really how fragrances should be composed.
