  1. SOTD, MDCI- Cuir Garamante, June 22, 2014

    'Lady Godiva' by John Collier, 1897
    Parfums MDCI-
    Cuir Garamante

    Riding in protest yet provocative; assertive,
    ever the female in control.
    A woman takes the reigns donning
    the smoothest, richest leather.

    Daunting; the dark forest awaits.
    Sultry sandalwood, labdanum, nutmeg
    and saffron envelope the velvet robes in
    gentle wafting

    DelRae- Début, EDP
    Darkest green surviving coolest, crispy nights
    sparkling white angel's caps
    float like so much dainty tulle.

    If there were fairies, surely it would be here.
    The snap of bergamot and linden blossom,
    gay as a warbler's song, carry the happy notes
    through the delicate breeze.

    Gather as many as you can.

    Profumum- Ambra Aurea

    See how it taunts; just beyond reach,
    a precious substance hoarded by rulers
    that could warm to the human touch.

    Glowing with the light of day,
    smelling of warm wood and sap,
    the bees are fooled, trapped forever
    by their thirst and love for something sweet.

    The pulse of the forest;
    trees flow with

    Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
    Chanel- 31 Rue Cambon
    A raucous party of bergamot and patchouli,
    whirling giddy with too much champagne.
    Business is pleasure but when did pleasure
    become business?

    Pass the canapés and hold in your stomach.
    Even if your feet hurt and that bit of wit fell flat,
    there is a soft,

    Kumquat's garden
    Profumum-
    Rosae Mundi, EDP

    The memory of a garden, long ago,
    many summers now, the dolls on the porch
    and some strawberry jam.
    Raspberries. Were there raspberries, too?
    Fat and glossy; warming in the sun.

    We played in the sprinklers
    while the robins danced.
    White-hot rays glazed the
    bobbing blossoms on the pink tea roses.
    I can taste it now;
