The color grey. Is it a perfect balance in the world of colors when none of them is dominating and all of them are the same? Or is it a result of eternal contest between the light and the darkness who reached their compromise in grey? Is it a color at all? Or just a shade? Or a shadow?
Gris Clair by Serge Lutens could be the answer to those questions. Smelling it reveals a beautiful picture in grey to my mind. I see seashore on a grey day with taupe coloured sand, steel blue water,
A soothing burst of lemon
from the sparkling island of Cyprus.
The fragrant cypress trees possess the lemon scent
within their craggy branches.
A swinging hammock;
my face in the cool shade
under the great trees.
Hot sand between my toes,
a fresh dip in the sea
and a picnic lunch with dry red wine.

George Inness, Home of the Heron, 1893
Serge Lutens-Bois Oriental
Surging, throbbing waves of color
are the feathers in the woods.
These great wings of delight
carry me from tree to tree in a gust of
bronze and gold.
The cedars and the gentle pines,
caress the senses with smoke and
sap, coursing through their limbs.
Boozy, there in the sky, I am rocking

According to MSN Entertainment, a newly found and previously unreleased Doors song will be out on Monday. The title? "She Smells So Nice"!
I have an idea for a new fragrance and campaign......
Hot, rushing leather and galbanum;
a swirl of satin and she's gone.
Who was that stunning blond over there by the fire?
The heart pounds as the furs are too warm.
Everyone wants a cocktail.
The cats snuggle on the sofa and enjoy
the amusing conversation.
