    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.

    Thank you very much! Proud to say that as an old-fashioned guy I asked for opinion, read it very carefully, calmly thought it over and disregarded it eventually I went with Versace V/S. Accordingly to info on basenotes it's discontinued now but somehow I found it in a small perfume shop in my hometown (in Olsztyn, Poland). I liked it so much I knew I had a winner

    Regards.

    Hi,

    Could You please help me? I'm in trouble looking perfumes for my GF. I know nothing about perfumes but I checked her wardrobe lately and I noticed she likes scents that could be described as florals broken by fruits. She owns Gucci Rush, Escada Magnetism and an untagged bottle shaped like red apple with golden top). I believe she'd rather prefer a bit darker, misterious scents than lighter and ’careless’ ones.

    I would be grateful if You could recommend 3-5 scents which I should check.

    I sent this question to Foetidus but he recommended You as an appropriate person to ask for an answer.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

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

'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

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.

Profumum- Ambra Aurea

See how it taunts; just beyond reach,
a precious substance hoarded by rulers
that could warm to the human touch.

Glowing with the light of day,
smelling of warm wood and sap,
the bees are fooled, trapped forever
by their thirst and love for something sweet.

The pulse of the forest;
trees flow with

Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
Chanel- 31 Rue Cambon
A raucous party of bergamot and patchouli,
whirling giddy with too much champagne.
Business is pleasure but when did pleasure
become business?

Pass the canapés and hold in your stomach.
Even if your feet hurt and that bit of wit fell flat,
there is a soft,
