    Just got a whole bunch of samples and it's uncharacteristically chilly here at the beach and I'm feeling adventurous and I'm gonna give Lutens' Gris Clair EDP a shot.:bounce:

    It's German and translates "Whereof one cannot read, thereof one must write." (It's a Wittgenstein spoof, the original goes "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.")

    Thank you for bringing this to my scatter-brained attention. I stuck the phrase in the computer translator, and it came forth:
    "About which one cannot read, over it one must write."

    Fantastic! What hasn't been explained by someone else, we must explain ourselves. How appropriate for this site.


    I'm sampling Ayala Moriel's Guilt this morning:
    Top Notes: Mimosa, Frangipani, Blood Orange
    Middle Notes: Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Rose
    Base Notes: Chocolate, Leather, Cepes
    Of all the lovely AM scents I've tested recently, this is the one that left the least impression. I look forward to going back to Espionage and Cabaret for the sake of exploring notes outside my normal comfort zone. I look forward to returning to Zohar or Palas Atena for their pretty florals. But Guilt, well, it just smelled nice as I brought my coffee mug-clutching hand up to my face.

    I have a vision (or what do you call a smell vision?) of what I'd like to see accomplished with a dirty cocoa note, and it involves a brooding richness accompanied by an ambered rose (as in Stella Rose Absolute). Most chocolate-laced scents try to balance the darkness and light, but I'm ready to step into a
    black garden where cocoa hull mulch is coated by fallen red petals.

    It is, isn't it?

    I'm comparing Bulgari Black with Bulgari Omnia... I went to Manhattan's fragrance district today, and tried both. I went back and forth as to which one I preferred, so I took both of them home.

    I switched to Sublime parfum. It got cloudy and cooler and I needed something heavier.

    I got my bottle (can) of CSP's Bois De Filao and am wearing it today. For being a wood fragrance, it is very soft, powdered and comfy on my skin.
