Scent of the Day

This blog depicts my interpretation of a chosen scent. I write a description and then list the notes and illustrate with a painting or photograph.

    Created in 1959 by Bernard Chant of IFF;
    a feminine leather chypre parfum with
    top notes of clary sage, tarragon and galbanum with
    heart notes of jasmine, ginger lily, rose and ylang-ylang;
    base notes of oak moss, sandalwood, vetiver and patchouli.

    I really could be on a night flight to Paris.
    My head is full of stars scattered in a dark sky.
    Mysterious and melancholic; the scent plays out like a dream.

    Notes: Orange, mandarin, lemon, bergamot, orange blossom;
    jonquil, aldehydes, galbanum; vanilla, spices,
    oakmoss, sandalwood, orris, musk.

    Blazing-hot, white rose scent- pierces through all others.
    I always think of clean, white sheets,
    and the sun bleaching them.

    Created by Sophia Grojsman in 1978.
    Top: citrus, peach and jasmine.
    Heart: lilac, rose and amber.
    Base: cedarwood, sandalwood and benzoin.

    Childhood memories abound,
    and new ones are created.
    Delight your senses.

    Mexican vanilla bean is the key.

    Boozey and bold, this scent is charged with atlas cedar,
    violet leaves and flowers.
    A bright brass band at first, it settles into a charming,
    sweet rendition of the flower in the woods
    at a madcap party where the punch is flowing.
    Splash it on!
