    For Chypre Saturday - Mitsouko!

    Since becoming an avid BNer, I've been experimenting every day with something new and have neglected my long time companions - Mitsouko being one of them. As I bask in the jasmine and roses on her soft greeny bed, I think of how much she has meant to me over these years. She and her sister L'Heure Bleu have never failed to comfort and uphold. Beautiful friends.

    Thank God for these SnS's!! :bounce:

    I have my eye on my Mitsouko for a bit later, but right now am sampling
    Sonia Rykiel's Woman, I think the notes are the following:

    notes of mandarin, honeysuckle, black currant, pineapple, cedar, rose and violet
    vanilla and sandalwood

    I am finding it very smooth and elegant, and subtle. I think I smell the honeysuckle and sandalwood. Sweet but not too sweet. Very feminine, not "in your face" like some of my recent favorites. Very natural and pretty.

    Also on the other wrist I have Chypre Rouge. Hot, red and rough. Like cinnamon red hot candies but not as sweet. Ah, Serge, he still finds ways to please me!

    I think my wrists could date each other!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I'll post briefly here, then take my monologue to the Sniff and Speak thread.

    I couldn't make up my mind between two of my favoirte chypres (one new and one longtime love) for today's Sniff & Speak, so I'm cheating a little:

    SoTD: Guerlain's Bois d'Armenie
    SoTE: Scent twins with Riannon and Fiori :wave: in Givenchy's Ysatis, though mine is the EDT strength, which on me has enough sillage to cover a small country!
    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

    Something called Patchouli Noir I found in Selfridges but can't remember who makes it and it's not on the database here.

    OK so I've been testing.

    Well, I've had a cold for the past three days, stayed home (driving me nuts, can't stand having to stay home) and have worn no fragrance for the three days. Today, even though I still sick, will go out to do errands, and wear Fendi. Have a good day

    I'm skipping the Sniff n' Speak to wear Jicky. It's funny - this is so similar to Shalimar, and yet it smells fabulous on me, whereas Shalimar is pure puke. I'm so glad that I have three classic Guerlains that work for me - and I know that this bottle is vintage, too!

    Or Black (Pascal Morabito)


    dry and astringent, deprived of even an atom of sweetness...the northern face of leather chypre...no chemical disturbs its beautiful transparent balance...pepper/aldehydes association recalls in filigree large perfumes such as 1000 (Patou)...perfect on a woman
