lutens really doesn't do it for me. what an incredible painting though!
Excellent post, thanks for sharing. Love the artwork, too!
Yes, I think it's great they offer the extrait! That is definitely the way to go. You won't believe how creamy and smooth it is.
What a nice comment! I will try to keep them coming! I have slowed down some, but I still add one now and then.
Thanks for the comment, Primrose. This is one of the first perfumes I went out of my way to find after trying a sample. I held off on doing a blog entry because I'm not sure if it is easy to buy. If you do find it, it is well worth the trouble!
Derby! Fine art that it is, I love your artwork to go with it, kumquat!
Yes, Primrose - I, too, much prefer the bee bottle, and am glad I've got mine. Still, I do appreciate that the scent itself has held up well.
Derby is one of my all time favs. I prefer this to Sous Le Vent.
A tragedy about the new, square bottle.
Thank you for sharing your SOTD.
Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog posts. They're all tastefully done and the art is always wonderfurlly enjoyable (my kind of stuff). Just the whole style of your blog is perfect in its classy simplicity.
Great job and please keep them coming!
Yes, I tried this one and love it. "Blazing heat"- yes, it's a lily under the hot sun! I love this one so much . I could own this! Didn't know there was hot pepper and clove in it. What a great composition. Great blog Kumquat.
It's great to see your blog again, kumquat. You must have the world's best collection of art (books? slides? URLs?)
Yes! I have a 5mL decant of this I never ever wear for fear of running out. Shame, isn't it?
Gorgeous art. I love that Oriental movement in 19th century art.
Thank you for this lovely sample of it. I just tried it yesterday and I love it. I hope to have a bottle- be it 1/2 full or even 1/4.
I appreciate the encouragement. Thank-you, MysteryBuff40!
Thank-you, Weimar! You are sweet to say that. Your posts are wonderful, too!
I love Ambra! It's a wonderful amber to wear year round.
Golden! That's it exactly; the perfect amber scent for a summer day!
I LOVE that picture! You always post the lovliest pictures and I forget to tell you just how much I enjoy them!
I must dig out my sample of L'eau d'Hiver and try it again after seeing this!
When using the extrait I don't notice the aldehydes, although you are right, they are prominent in the other formulas. I found this list of notes in another review and it felt accurate to me. There very well could be orris in it, too.
