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.

    Good list. Assuming equal amounts of juice, Portrait of a Lady is probably the best buy because that shit is strong. I'm anxious to hear what you think about this one and Dans Tes Bras. It's hard to go wrong with Eau de Hadrien, but Nuits de Hadrien is my personal favorite (I need to get another bottle since I just extinguished it two days ago).

    @b1os: I'm especially interested to see what you'll think of Dries van Noten and Bullion. I think Dries van Noten is wonderful, but the online fragrance community doesn't seem to agree. And no one talks about Bullion at all!

    Pre-shower: Bendelirious
    SOTD: Jules. It's rainy and gray here, so I felt like it was appropriate today. (I just realized that I never pronounce Jules in French, probably because we can say Jules just fine in English. I go back and forth on Cartier Declaration, but of course I have to say Declaration d'un Soir in French.)

    You got a bottle of Jules?

    How do you say it in Francais?

    No, I just got a decant. I like it very much and I probably should get a bottle, though. I've been thinking about it, but so far I've not been willing to pull the trigger.

    The French pronunciation is ʒyl. If the phonetic spelling isn't very helpful, then I'd say it's something close to zhül. We just don't make that ü sound in English, so it's hard to describe.

    Agreed, Eau d'Hadrien and Nuits d'Hadrien are great.

    I've tried Bullion once and enjoyed it.

    Does your Neimans in SF carry Jules?

    I thought Jules had been discontinued. Is this re-release?

    SOTD is Les Nuits d'Hadrien

    Jules was never actually discontinued, it's just that it's distribution has been extremely limited. My understanding is that it has continued to be available in France and Spain. And for whatever reason, the San Francisco Neimans has been reputed to have it.

    At the symphony tonight, with a performance of Carmina Burana, so I am wearing Vol de Nuit applied heavily to overpower the smell of blue haired women around me.
