"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Not a thing! I'm bringing several dozen different herb clippings to my daughter's school for a "see and smell" show, and there will be so much scent wafting around I don't want anything adding to it.
Maybe later today, something gentle like Montale's Tiare Intense.

I've trademarked the color bleu
Thought I'd give Noa Fleur one last shot before I placed the sample in a box bound for one of my female clients. Ick, argh, ewww. I feel like I've got a bar of soap in my mouth. I get this reaction to too many scents.

I have eight BRIGHT yellow goldfinches at my thistle feeder this morning. I would wear a thistle scent if I had one.... But instead will
wear Verte Violette -- it's got that green and purple thang goin' on!
Please, spritz responsibly.

"Of the five senses, the sense of smell is incontestably the one that best conveys a sense of immortality."
MPG's JARDIN BLANC. Very heady and I'm in love with it. ..jasmine and tuberose and I think it has a touch of honeysuckle.
Jean Nate cologne.
Fragrance Notes -Lavender, Jasmine, Rose, Carnation, Lily of the valley, Cedar, Tonka, Musk, Sandal.
I was very curious about the composition and found the above notes on fragranceshop.com - I don't know where they got the info or if it is accurate. Every place else just describes it as a spicy floral fresh fragrance. It seemed citrussy to me, but nothing citrus is mentioned. I definitely can make out the lavender and lily of the valley. Anyway, I'm really enjoying it!
Have a wonderful day. :-)
Wearing Halston today. Have a nice Tuesday!
Roma - again. Needed some 'get up and go' this morning, as Hubbie
had to be up for 6 a.m. and he woke me up too. Couldn't get back to
sleep so I got up at 7.00 in the end and left for work at 7.45. >
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Quarry- I LOVE Cacharel Noa Fleur...but I will admit, it is soapy.
Today I'm wearing Czech & Speake Dark Rose.
It took a while to make up my mind today, but I choose Mure et Musc to match the plum colour of my top and toe nails.
Today I`m wearing Blackberry & Vanilla Musk by Trish McEvoy.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Greetings- another cool, rainy day here. I'm wearing tiny dabs of NK Perfume layered with NK Incense. I'm so happy I found Norma Kamali- her Incense has really made my whole year!

I revisited my sample of Bouton de Rose by Le Prince Jardinier. It's a good old rose, but somehow nothing special to it.
Changed to Fleurs de Rocaille (vintage), as BdR was gone in two hours. Marvellous!
There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
Monyette Lotion all over, a little Monyette oil in my hair, and a small squirt of Perfumer's Pallete Gardenia behind my knees..
"Scent is very important. Strong fragrances suit some men, while citrus types suit others. I like my men to smell fresh and woody, but also like a man."
Today Iris Nobile, tomorrow???
"...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."
“Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect,” .......... “A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”
