I am wearing my exclusive bespoke fragrance, created for me by Michaela Harvey of Pecksniff's - which I finally chose from 3 possibles. I named it Recital. It's an amber oriental and the top notes are rose and lily of the valley. Heart notes are tuberose, jasmine, tagette and ylang ylang. Base notes are amber, vanilla, patchouli, musk and oakmoss. With those basenotes, it would normally be something I'd run screaming from (well, I'd be happy with the patchouli and musk, but I loathe vanilla and oakmoss is supposedly the cause of 'old ladiness' in Mitsouko and its ilk), but somehow this combination works extremely well. It's similar, but not too much so, to Le Baiser Du Dragon. I wore it to work today and everyone remarked on how lovely it is, and how 'expensive' it smells. Well, in real terms, it bloody-well was, but when I order refills it's the same price as any decent fragrance. Having it created was about what I'd pay for 4 decent 100ml bottles of eau de parfum, so I reckon that's a bargain overall. It's mine, no-one else in the world will ever smell like this, and for that reason it's worth every penny.
