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.

    A virtual trip to the old country.
    A beautiful dry chypre in the grand tradition of perfumery.
    Every breath is fresh and green.

    Top: bergamot, ylang-ylang and peony;
    Middle: jasmine, rose, French labdanum and amber
    Base: oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood and musk.

    Baah Baah, March. It's time for a warm, green chypre.
    This is an ideal transitional fragrance.
    Snappy, fresh. Woody, yet gently floral,
    I am carried to meadows bordered by woods in dappled light.
