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.

    Proud green galbanum charges ahead
    to meet subtle iris and husky leather.
    A gentle musk is not far behind.
    Elegant emerald tones of glorious green
    and bright sunny days, waft as in a dream.

    Chanel No. 19 includes notes of galbanum,
    hyacinth, neroli, bergamot, jasmine, rose, lily of the valley,
    iris, vetiver, sandalwood,

    A tumble of glorious florals, followed by pulsing, animalic leather.
    Cool iris and clary sage soothe in the bright air, supported by the warm amber base.

    Notes include orange blossom, bergamot, mandarin, clary sage; iris, jasmine, rose,
    ylang-ylang, cedarwood, vetiver; styrax, leather, amber, vanilla.

    An intriguing blend of bergamot, florals, amber,
    moss and musk. The scent is sometimes fleeting
    but when it appears to have gone, it whispers again.
    A teasing ruffle as a feather in the wind.
    I must find a party to attend. I feel like dancing.
