  1. Avon??? Yeah I know but I have a question about the "Black Suede Leather" scent...

    by , 1st February 2012 at 02:49 AM ("Mad Men" stsyle Colognes. Colognes with a manly vibe.)
    As of 2010 Avon Black Suede Leather has reared it's head. I'm just getting into frags. I was curious if it reminds anyone of any other "designer" frags? What's the sillage and longevity? I'm into scents like Haltson z-14, Azzaro pour homme, even Halston Catalyst, etc. Any similarities?

    Bessie Coleman, 1892-1926


    Caron-En Avion

    One can feel the rush of the props
    and the cool air as it picks up the scent of violets.
    Clouds scudding by in the azure sky;
    weightless, yet filled with the promise of a glorious day.
    The wind sings in the struts
    as we bank gently over the fields.

    Light leather stirs up from the
    supple coat and gloves,
    while garden flowers

  3. Gris Clair: the shades of grey

    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, ...

    Annick Goutal-
    Eau d'Hadrien


    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.

    The crisp

    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
    ...
