Scent of the Day

My impression of the fragrance I am wearing on this day. Usually the fragrance notes are included, if known.

  1. SOTD, Saturday, May 2, 2015- Penhaligon's Ostara


    ​Georgia O'Keefe, Yellow Jonquils
    Penhaligon- Ostara
    Earthy, meringue-like clouds of waxy notes
    gleam in the golden rays.
    Sleepy, their pendulous heads nod in the sun,
    drinking in the recent rain.
    Somber, grey clouds scuttle off, leaving the glorious
    Vetiver and grasses wafting in their wake.
    Narcissus was doomed to love himself beyond all reason,

    Henry Scott Tuke, 1850

    Creed-
    Jardin D'Amalfi

    Lemons blaze, hotter than the white heat on the green grass.
    Sleepy, wafts of tangerine and juicy neroli, roll by.
    It's time for a walk in the sunny garden.
    Dreaming in the daze of warmth,
    yellow striped butterflies prance with audacity.
    Bold; they know they are marked as "dangerous".

  3. SOTD- Bond no.9- Chinatown, Sunday, July 13, 2014



    Bond no.9- Chinatown
    Proud, perfect plum blossom perky and prim,
    glows with oriental spices;
    cardomom anchors the sultry cloud
    as it hovers in the trees.

    Red; the color of happiness,
    luck and all good life forces,
    rushes forth as it fills my heart.
    The rich scent is redolent;
    representative of an ancient civilization

    A gentle woody musk that calls to mind
    the 'Mad Men' era.
    A woman had to use her feminine charms to play the game. Some things never change.

    Thomas Gainsborough-Portrait of a Lady in Blue

    Guerlain- L'Heure Bleue
    Heliotrope- powdery, cherry almonds,
    good enough to eat,
    surround one in a joyful cloud.

    Cool tones strike wistful notes.
    Imagine the days when scent was so precious,
    only the wealthy had this luxury;
    the tremendous pleasure it gave
    in a gray, dreary world.

    L’Heure Bleue was created by Jacques Guerlain
