So is this a cosmic joke? I get a note this morning that we were nominated for Best Blog on Basenotes, and now the entire Basenotes site is not responding, and I get a hacker alert and my entire computer shuts down as soon as I click on the link.
Anyway, if true, we’re jacked!!!! Not sure who else is nominated, but you can count on us for shameless vote hustling and bribery if there is still a voting period left to use for our purposes.
And thanks to everyone who nominated us!
Congrats, sweethearts (that means you too, Lee and Bryan) 😀
Sobbed bigtime at BM, was crying out the lump in my throat all the way through the credits. Yeah, yeah, I’m a Perfume Pussy!
Love y’all 🙂
Oh, man! I must not spend enough time in cyberspace. So sorry I didn’t know about the Basenotes thing. Although the other blogs mentioned each have their charms, this is the one that makes me laugh out loud the most often, which is definitely my idea of “best!” (I’m not laughing AT you, I’m laughing WITH you.)
I think the “Brokeback Mountain” line was (Jack to Ennis): “I wish I knew how to quit you!” Who hasn’t felt like that some time? But, oh, what a sad movie. My elation that finally there was a mainstream movie that was empathetic to a couple of hunky guys was crushed by the fact that it ended in tragedy. I mean, how would the Moral Majority stand it if two happy gay guys rode off into the sunset together? sigh…..
‘Course we love you…
In December Basenotes had a big banner on its site offering visitors the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $200 gift certificate from Aedes if one answered a fun little poll: best ever fragrance for women, for men, for night, that sort of thing. Best celebrity fragrance–well, you know I had to leave that one blank; I was too torn between Impermanence and Nothingness. Toward the end one could nominate one’s favorite fragrance blog.
People with peculiar senses of humor may have typed in “Perfume Posse,” even if they have never won one of YOUR drawings. 8-| It’s possible, anyway.
The second I saw your %5 off for Basenotes I nominated you. hehe. This blog is fantastic. Funny, and not too serious, it is perfume afterall, we’re hardly curing cancer around here…Love it. And congrats of course.
Brokeback was indeed depressing beyond belief for me. Made me sad in a way a movie hasn’t in along time….
You deserve it! (((Patty and March)))
BTW, I loved the mention of Doblis today. I am so happy to hear that you are pleased with it. 🙂
Patty, March (and Leo)
Congratulations! Break out the Champagne!
If you’re going to see “Brokeback” I’d chase that glass of Veuve with a couple Zoloft: both I and my best friend were depressed for about three days after seeing it…
Greetings and congratulations! No need for bribery…you are the ones, no doubt. I can feel it! Just called my friends at NSA…but be careful talking about the brokeback mountain thing…no bad jokes there! 😉
I saw it on HBO just recently, though I didn’t see the sex-laden first part (have no idea if it is sex-laden), which is how most of my HBO watching goes, I never see the complete movie at one sitting.
Unique category of what, Daft?
Now, now dissin’ of Brokeback, ya hear me…
Gris Clair… wtf? Your skin is keh-raaazy! So, now you got me sniffing both of em like a dang fool.
Nope, still with the ker-raaazy… I might need to find me a Jake Gyllenhaal substitute and take this worrisome issue out on him under canvas somewheres high on the plains.
Hey Lee — got the Goose yesterday, thanks!
Very odd. Not getting the pie until several hours (!) in. First three is Gris Clair-ish. If you can believe.
Patty — We’re the best in our own unique category. I ain’t quittin’ you!<):) hahahahaha Isn't that what those dudes say to each other in Brokeback Mountain in between the drunken tent sex? I didn't see the movie, although we joked about it a lot as an option on date night. Somehow I'm thinking you didn't see it either. I DID read the story, though...
Dang it! We are totally corrupt over here, and I was counting on a length voting period to shore things up for us. :d
Maybe next year we can have that?
This is great, I love the Awards
Votings over i’m afraid but we do have a complex bribery system in place, where the blog that mentions Basenotes the most will win. Plus they need to send lots of cash. In UK Pounds if possible, but US dollars or Euros will do. I’m not fussed.;););)
Seriously though: The votes have been counted and I know who the winners are but my lips are sealed until February!
Thank you, Grant! Darn, we should have implemented our shameless plugging much earlier.
Well, yeah, um, of course! ^:)^
What kind of bribery should we implement? And I forget, is there another voting period?
Its true, though I’m not sure why BN isnt loading up for you (though the nominations page has loooaaads of pics on it so that may cause a prob)
Perfume Posse is nominated along with these other blogs:
Bois de Jasmin
Now Smell This
Voting is now over and the results will be announced in feb.
I voted for you, but only cos there’s been a marked improvement in the quality of the blogging these past coupla weeks…=)):-ss
