Managed to get up early without feeling like I'd been hit by a truck (my usual early morning state), put in 20 minutes on the elliptical machine at the gym, back home, said hi to the bunnies, showered and am now off to work... Yikes! I feel so... industrious. Maybe I should go back to bed.
Yesterday's visit with SMM was wonderful, lots of cross-testing of various fun fragrances, and dear ScentSon reminded me of one that's been on my wish list for years, but I just can't manage to get over the price...
My SoTD is Josef Statkus Eau de Parfum
. A gorgeous, papery white smoke incense, with sweet floral (not head shop) patchouli and an extremely light camphor note (also probably from the patchouli) in there that keeps it from being completely classically beautiful, but also makes it infinitely
more intersting, in my opinion. Even though jasmine is listed first in the notes, I do not get any of the waxy browned flowers many jasmines bring up on my skin. Lovely.Josef Statkus notes:
Jasmine, patchouli, coriander, incense, amber, cashmere wood, vanilla, benzoin, musk.
Marvelous Monday to all!
