Wow, it's officially less than a week before the July Sniff & Speak! I didn't order a sampler of greens from the Perfumed Court, but got some ideas for greens from them (from the deluxe green sampler, mainly). I got four samples (plenty for a Saturday!):
- Celadon : A Velvet Green by DSH Perfumes (an aromatic green classified by Fragrantica);
- Botanical Essence No. 1 by Liz Earle (classified by Fragrantica as aromatic, mainly because bergamoth and lavender, I guess);

Perfumer - Adam Gottschalk of Lord’s Jester Perfumes
Notes: I did not receive a list of notes. To find out more, I read Adam’s blog re. Dionysus and found this fragrance has 17 ingredients in it -including spikenard, jonquil in the heart notes, probably a large amount of ambergris, Africa Stone, cognac in the base notes. The others are not listed. NB. (Adam’s blog is a good read, I might add! )

Last Wednesday night/Thursday morning I did something I have never done before. I have known friends who stayed up all night waiting to get tickets to that special concert or sporting event, but I'd never done that. I've had friends who spent white nights waiting for product launches. And I'd never done that before either.
Well, I decided I needed to have that experience, so I stayed up all night with some people in San Francisco in front of the Apple Store waiting for the launch of
Perfumer – JoAnne Bassett( Fragrance therapist- couture perfumer )
(Eau de Parfum concentration )
I received my labeled sample with a lovely introductory letter and a business card. It’s truly good and appreciated to receive letters describing the perfumer’s inspiration for their fragrant creations.
Notes listed : Clementine, Rose de Mai, vintage jasmine sambac, tuberose, orange blossoms, ambrette

Between the provocative, Tom-Fordish scent, and the unapologetic allergen warning, I was seduced and inspired. The thought of a future without such scents was too much for me to bear. I simply had to process it. To hope against it. To imagine victory over it....
I watched Sato get on the bus. As he walked up the steps, past the scanner, I kept my eyes on the driver. I knew that if the scanner spotted him as jailbreak, the driver would react. It's funny. You can try to control information
