Whoo-hoo – a very special Monday: Happy birthday to our amazing Patty!!!

birthday cakeWishing our lovely, generous and fearless leader Patty a very, very happy birthday!! We hope today is filled with all the joy that you give to others. Sending you love and hugs from the Posse!

BTW, Patty, do let us know what scent(s) you’re wearing today, as inquiring minds want to know 😉 and what you’re doing to celebrate wonderful you!!

I know Anita was having a ball gallivanting around Chi-town with Portia and the gang on HER birthday, so no telling what sensational scents she enjoyed during her travels (although I know a little bubbly and a little chocolate were definitely on tap).

I know that on important days in my life I really think hard about what’s in my collection and intentionally bring out the big guns, the rare and/or special scents that don’t often cross my radar on an everyday basis. Although some might argue that we should wear them all the time and celebrate every day –- a good point, indeed.

My birthday last month had me dabbing on a wee bit of a tiny sample of Roja Dove Roja, which is beyond divine (and way, way beyond my wallet). But I couldn’t resist treating myself to just a little to celebrate.

So what do you (or will you) wear on your birthday to celebrate you?

    Happy Bday, Patty! Yea, December babies!

    I hope this year of new life brings you joy and new passions to pursue. One of my favorite things about you is the way you throw yourself into things, full tilt, learning with amazing speed (knitting!! Yoga. Skin care. Clean eating) I love reading about your explorations. I’d say most perfumistas are sensualists, but today I dub you our queen 😀 Have a ball…(and hope you feel better, soon)

    Happy day today, tomorrow, and all the days to come, Patty. I’m wearing Le Couvent des Minimes, which – appropriately enough – was a blind lemming purchase I made after reading your recent post about it!

    Hope you’re having a great day, Patty!

    Happy Birthday!! I hope you’re smelling luscious. I have no idea what I wore on my b-day this year although I suspect it was something amber-y as that was on the sniff menu for a bit…

  • Cristine says:

    Happy birthday, Patty! On my last two birthdays I wore Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille (my birthday is in mid-November.) Lovely, snugly stuff that doesn’t clash with cake. Do you hate having your birthday near Christmas? I do. As a kid, I always wanted a pool-party….

    Happy birthday, Patty! It was your “Best of” posts that got me started on the perfume obsession, which I think makes my entire stash your fault. I can’t imagine that free will could be a factor ;-).

  • Tatiana says:

    Happy Birthday Patty! I hope your day is filled with love and joy!

    Happy Birthday, Patty! I don’t exactly remember what perfume I was wearing on my birthday but I think that it was either Epic or it was Theorema.

  • Neva says:

    Congratulations Patty and thank you for all the scented years before and after today!!! Yes, please tell us what scent you’re wearing today. Maybe it will be another inspiration from you 😉

  • Dina C. says:

    For my birthday, this year, I wore 31 Rue Cambon. Which I’d never be able to put my paws on if it were not for STC. So, a big THANK YOU to Patty, too. 🙂

    • Ann says:

      Great choice, Solanace! I didn’t much care for 31 when it first came out but I blame it now on neophyte nose way back then. Just got some recently and am enjoying it. Yes, yes, thanks to Patty (and Lisa) for our wonderful STC!
