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.

    Crisp, haunting floral floats about effortlessly.
    Slightly green, yet sweet and pure; there is no other more perfect flower.
    I am so thrilled spring is finally here, this is celebration - full stop!

    Top Notes: Bergamot
    Middle Notes: Italian and Moroccan jasmine
    Base Notes: Ambergris, galbanum

    Charming, refreshing, gently stimulating - the herbs and spices welcome the day.
    A clean tingle tickles my nose throughout the day. Peppermint, light as a snowflake.

    Notes: Fresh citrus infusion with peppermint, Juniper berry, basil, musk, ambergris

Loving perfume on the Internet since 2000
