  1. Ah yes, Your Duciness- it's the great Dioressence you love. It was one of the first scents that I fell passionately in love with after coming to Basenotes. I never would have known about it otherwise. It is one of a kind.

    I'm here to parrot RainDropSparkle.

    Every time I see one of your SotD pictures I think "I must give her some applause for that" and yet never seem to get around to it! Apologies.

    I love your pictures! My latest favorite is the White Linen one - lovely.

    Hi Kumquat! Re your comment on discontinued fragrances:
    "Charles of the Ritz (In the maroon & silver can)
    was one of the first I was interested in back in 9th grade.
    It is still a holy grail. I would love to smell it again!"

    Holy indeed! There it is on ebay, almost $500!!

    Just thought I would say (again!) that I love your posts to the SOTD thread (so cool that it's here in your blog, too!). You have a remarkable knack for finding imagery that matches the sense of the fragrance, and I also enjoy reading the "narrative" bit that is included, as well.

SOTD, Friday, September 11, 2015 - DelRae Wit

by kumquat on 11th September 2015 at 08:51 PM

Raoul Dufy, 1939
DelRae- Wit
Fancy curls of sweet flowers
beckoning to the dance.
Pink glows amid cool pastels and greens.
The conversation sparkles in tandem
with the champagne.

Daphne is the centerpiece here.
A rare scent whose mythology has
earned it an honored place in history.
Imperfect love angered the Gods and

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

by kumquat on 2nd May 2015 at 09:48 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 09:05 PM

Henry Scott Tuke, 1850

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 05:06 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 09:14 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
