Messe de Minuit
An early Christmas gift from a dear friend!
A spicy ambered incense fragrance sweetened with a touch
of vanilla and honey. I am already wearing this and loving it!
Top notes: Orange, Bergamot, Mandarin Wood, Galbanum
Middle notes: Myrrh, Cinnamon, Labdanum
Base notes: Patchouli, Vanilla, Honey, Amber, Musk
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
Snarky is as snarky does.
Fahrenheit 32, yet again. I'm really trying to warm up to this as even with that first wearing that went horribly wrong, I felt there was potential, and it definitely would be unlike anything else in my wardrobe (always a plus!).

Serge Lutens - Encens et Lavande
Top Notes: Bergamot, Clary Sage, Lavender, Rosewood
Middle Notes: Muguet, Rose, Jasmine, Geranium
Base Notes: Tonka, Sandalwood, Amber, Cedar, Patchouli, Vanilla
One of my all-time favorites. Balanced, classic, well-blended, and above all, engaging to those around me. When I wear this to work, people always remark favorably about it. My supervisor has followed me around sniffing my sillage as we went. She's a real fan of this scent now, although she didn't know it before she first smelled it on me. To take a slightly more analytical approach, let me say that lavender, rosewood, and clary sage make a beautiful opening accord; the muscatel note of the clary sage does wonders for the marriage of the other two. The florals in the middle notes are also a classic accord of rose, jasmine, and geranium, but with an extraordinary lily of the valley note which lifts them into something far less predictable. Coumarin, woods, and vanilla in the base make a gracious underpinning for the notes above, and just enough patchouli rounds out the whole quite elegantly. One word to sum it up? Intoxicating.

CARNAL FLOWER ( Dominique Ropion )
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Congratulations Roberto, I HAD to say it, as usually i can t help myself when it s about Carnal.
Sotd: Montale Greyland.
Have you noticed that it is a deeper, richer version of Declaration ? They are quite similar, specially in the top notes. And since i love Declaration, i love Greyland, Also, it has better longevity and sillage than the Cartier's frag.

What a great array of bottles!
Here's my contribution....
...although I don't actually own this bottle.
FIVE STARS in the First Addendum to the Guide!! "A Masterpiece"!
One strange and gorgeous creation. On me the first breath is all citrus and smoke...smoky, "burn pile" smoke...not leaves or rubber. Then there's some ocean breezes and a waft of osmanthus (to me) Then some pungent green over a delicate floral....
...and - a half hour into the wearing - it's still evolving.....

Diptyque Tam Dao
Reedy sandalwood and green cedar. I find Tam Dao either slightly irritating in the way that a yoga class is irritating when you can't slow down and stop counting seconds. Or like this morning, I find it wonderfully meditative. Slow and clear.
Hose Brother with javagreen as today I am wearing a new sample:
Tauer Incense Rose'
OMG!!! This is love at first sniff. This is full-on strong frankincense from the top. One of the strongest incense openings I've worn to date. This would not be one for those who like their incense muted as this comes on with all the subtlety of a trumpet fanfare. Then oh so slowly this lush deep rose peeks out from behind the censer and mingles with it before taking the lead. As this develops down to a cedar base the patchouli which has been there all along becomes a little more pronounced. This is an incredible scent on me.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone.

Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Snow in Boston! Am in sandalwood and pale, exotic floral paradise (and thinking of Bossanova Boy, the only other BNer I've found who owns/knows of this fragrance) wearing Essence of Jerusalem.
Happy day to all.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

In creation of one essence and soul.
