Le Baiser du Dragon Parfum
Thread: SotD Saturday 20 January
I'm testing L'Artisan Dzonka and Tea for Two right now. I've also been dabbing bits of all the non-Lutens samples that arrived during SL week, and craving great big spritzes of my non-Lutens favorites. I think I'll go with Nahema tonight.
Le Baiser du Dragon Parfum
Count me among those indulging in non-Lutens samples and bottles after last week. SoTD was Idole de Lubin... lots of compliments on this one today. Hurrah!
Later, testing out Lagerfeld's Sun Moon Stars on one hand (the jury's still out on that one, something weird about the heliotrope and the water lily, which may well grow on me)... Also trying out Hermes Hiris on the other hand -- absolutely LOVE it!!
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

"Of the five senses, the sense of smell is incontestably the one that best conveys a sense of immortality."
Wearing Poivre tonight...I bought a 1/4 oz bottle last summer and received a big bottle as a b'day gift...I love this stuff!
Polo Sport Extreme for Men
I wore my sample of Little Italy today. It's tenacious, so tonight I'm wearing a sort of blend of Little Italy and New York Fling.

Thanks Twolf, I love both Le Monde Est Beau and Gilles Cantuel Creature d'Anges. I bought Gilles Cantuel Creature d'Anges from the San Fransisco Sephora many years ago. I think I should wear it more often It has a very soft honey note to it.Originally Posted by Twolf
Have a nice weekend!
oops! forgot to post today. got a big box of samples from perfumerie generale, and i tried cuir venenum. the description from the sample card:
"sombre, heady and opulent leather is generally an inevitable component of men's perfumery. reinterpreted, modernized - even feminised - it shows a new oriental and erotic facet that gives it depth and mystery. Perfumerie Generale has made this luxurious leather note vibrant and vivid by combining absolute of orange blossom, hints of citrus and sacred myrrh. not only doeos this scent have a powerful trail, but also exceptional staying power due to the novel combination of polyalcohols of coconut and musk that imparts a highly original sensual effect."
it smells very GRAPE-y to me, grapes and leather. it almost smells like alcohol on another person's breath, but not in a nasty way. my BF said it smells like "ice wine," though i'm afraid i don't know what that is. i'm not sure about this one....it might be just too much grape. i don't see the comparison to chinatown that tinker made - do you know what it was specifically that made you think that, tinker?
Seeking: woods patchouli fresh tuberose
I wore Highland Lilac today on one arm and Yves Rocher Pur Desir de Lilas on the other. A nice spring in Janurary day!
