Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

Post by Minh Scent » Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:51 pm

Lovely Posset friends,
October 2 marks Fabienne's first death anniversary. Are we commemorating that on the 2nd or do you remember the perfume community having another date? I remember Julia Arcana had something on it, but I do not remember the date and if it was on FB, that means never to be found again.

Hi, Minh, I was thinking of this the other day and was wondering if we were going to do a memorial type tribute like we did last year. I had not realized it was so soon--I guess because we found out about it (or I did) almost a week after it happened, I was thinking it would be next week, not this one. I like the idea you and Boudicca posted on FB of wearing her perfumes in honor and celebration of her.

I'm wearing The Scent of Night today. :hrt::

I am glad you mentioned it, I would have missed it. I am wearing Crown of the Vulture in her honor. It's a good fit with the early fall/October feeling in the air.

I'm wearing Seraphim today in Fabienne's memory :star: :star: :star:

Dear Gordon, we are thinking of you and celebrating Fabienne today--she is greatly missed but she remains with us in our hearts and these beautiful fragrances.

Sad day on so many levels.

I was thinking about Gordon and wondering how things are going for him.

Today I brought out the Silver Sandalwood. I love all of Fabienne's silvers and perhaps Silver Oude is my favorite, but Silver Sandalwood is more comforting to me.

I saw Gordon last night and am having lunch with him on Thursday. Needless to say, yesterday was a challenging day. However, he was in the company of very supportive good friends.

Thank you for giving us that update, Tom. I'm glad to know that Gordon has good friends by him.

It may seem frivolous, but I'm wearing Waltzing Matilda. It lifts my spirits and reminds me of what a magical touch Fabienne had with coconut.

Thank you, Tom, for that note about Gordon. Our hearts all heavy for him.

Last night I wore St. Fabian. This morning for yoga it was Mafia (this is my new stunner from the retour). Today I am wearing perhaps my favorite Possets of all time (but don't hold me to it!) Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal.

I can still see the handwritten note from Fabienne on my impulsive one bottle buy of St. Fabian, "I think you will really like this." And always signed off with "fondly".

It is good to hear that you have been with Gordon, Tom, and that you're having lunch with him tomorrow. He and Fabienne continue to be in my thoughts this week.

Today I am wearing Gypsy Grave and Dies Irae, both of them beautiful fragrances.
