    Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. Keep warm!

    Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
    Happy Holidays!

    Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
    Happy Holidays!
  7. I might come to Wichita this Spring. I will definitely see my 2 favorite Kansan perfumistas then, you can be sure!
  8. Thank-you, Shades and Killwia! You know, I really don't need anything as far as perfume is concerned. Getting more at this point just seems ludicrous. I am in a definite buying lull. I am getting more familiar with all of my beauties, though. For my birthday I wore my favorite classic formula of 'Rive Gauche'. It always makes me happy, especially in cold weather, for some reason.

Would you rather have one amazing scent that costs $300 or 4 mediocre scents at that same price? Yesterday 06:30 PM

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

by kumquat on 2nd May 2015 at 08:48 PM

​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,

SOTD- February 21, 2015, Jardin D'Amalfi

by kumquat on 21st February 2015 at 08:05 PM

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".

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

by kumquat on 13th July 2014 at 04:06 PM


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

SOTD, MDCI- Cuir Garamante, June 22, 2014

by kumquat on 22nd June 2014 at 08:14 PM
'Lady Godiva' by John Collier, 1897
Parfums MDCI-
Cuir Garamante

Riding in protest yet provocative; assertive,
ever the female in control.
A woman takes the reigns donning
the smoothest, richest leather.

Daunting; the dark forest awaits.
Sultry sandalwood, labdanum, nutmeg
and saffron envelope the velvet robes in
gentle wafting

SOTD- May 4, 2014

by kumquat on 4th May 2014 at 05:03 PM


DelRae- Début, EDP
Darkest green surviving coolest, crispy nights
sparkling white angel's caps
float like so much dainty tulle.

If there were fairies, surely it would be here.
The snap of bergamot and linden blossom,
gay as a warbler's song, carry the happy notes
through the delicate breeze.

Gather as many as you can.
