    PS: I was also wrong with the Callas part, so that's the reason you don't remember it! It was of course Montserrat Caballé!

    It's this recording:

    How did I choose music? Hard to tell. Mostly, it was my own personal associations. Like the cello piece for Vetiver to reflect that dry, hoarse spice and citrus that play on the vetiver. Or the Thai folk song for Vetiver pour Elle to reflect the South East Asian salty-green jasmine vibe I get. Or Vivaldi for Samsara because I find this scent so baroque and rich. Or the strange Yoko Ono song for Mitsouko, because she's Japanese and she says "Geisha" in the song. Also, I could be the story behind the scent, like Shalimar with the Indian music. Or Malcolm McLauren for Sous le Vent, because the song mentions both Josephine Baker and Paris. Things like that. Some scents were more difficult to associate with music, there I just chose a certain mood.

June 2010 was the first month I really stuck to it, keeping track of everything I wore and sampled.

The results stunned me. I am officially calling my June 2010 "A Month of Sampling Feast" -- I wore 52 different scents in June!!! Some wearings were "researchy" kinds --

Which fragrance(s) seem to affect your mood the most?

I've been trying to devise some sort of "rubric" for putting stars on my samples and bottles of perfume for the wardrobe. When something ranks at 4, this means I am starting to get some of this connection with my mood. When I start getting a connection between the perfume and my mood, that's where usually

Prep for Sniff & Speak

by Warum on 28th June 2010 at 02:26 AM
Wow, it's officially less than a week before the July Sniff & Speak! I didn't order a sampler of greens from the Perfumed Court, but got some ideas for greens from them (from the deluxe green sampler, mainly). I got four samples (plenty for a Saturday!):

- Celadon : A Velvet Green by DSH Perfumes (an aromatic green classified by Fragrantica);
- Botanical Essence No. 1 by Liz Earle (classified by Fragrantica as aromatic, mainly because bergamoth and lavender, I guess);

It probably won't work in really hot weather, but over here.... ah well, I'll stop rubbing it in. I'm off to the valley, maybe it'll
