    I'm trying Rose Poivre once more. So far it is sharp and fishy on my skin, but I will let it dry down before rushing to judgement.

    Ormande Jayne's Orris Noir in anticipation and encouragement of the official arrival of spring
    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

    On my second of Five Days of Amouage it is Eau de Amouage fruits and flowers and amber/sandalwood with a hint of green. Beautifully blended with none of the notes asserting, though I get a hint of peony. Perfect accompaniment for Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearl tea (Thank you PurpleBird7!!)

    Another exciting day of testing Lutens. I went for La Myrrhe today; expecting something heavy, dark and incensy; so I couldn't have been more surprised by the fresh, juicy opening with mandarine. It made me thirsty.
    Strange scent this one - I have never smelled Myrrhe before. Remembers it from my childhood - the three holy men in the bible.

    I seem to remember Antaeus smells good. And lucky you - while his skin + soap + shampoo + freshly laundered clothes do smell good to me, I have yet to get my S.O. to wear something smelly for me.

    Although yesterday afternoon I dabbed on some PotL Luctor et Emergo, and he told me later he smelled like my perfume, and he didn't think he minded if that one rubbed off on him. Progress!

    As for me today - Rose Ikebana (thanks, Ayala). I needed something happier today, although the brooding, foreboding L'Ombre dans l'Eau did occur to me. I should wear this more often.

    I also want to add... I sniffed my first two MDCIs, FK1 and FK3, and it was love for both. FK3, in particular, seems a fragrance I could wear over and over again without tiring, like my beloved Mitsouko. I think I'll stick with variety, but it would be a good candidate for a signature scent I feel.

    You know, I had them in one of those metal spoon/teaballs and didn't have a chance to see.

    I looked at your previous fishy/rose url and found that thread very interesting, especially the possible explanations for it. I too get an awful fishy odour using the Weleda Wild Rose Oil as a base. I saw your tip on that via another thread, and found a local stockist courtesy of the lovely staff at Weleda UK. The first time I used it I thought I'd made a big mistake, but, as you observe, the unpleasantness lasts only a moment and disappears as soon as the skin starts to absorb the oil.

    I don't generally get that fishy stench with rose notes, but I do see what you mean about Serge Luten's Sa Majeste La Rose. I don't get quite as close as fishy, but there is certainly a hint of it for a moment. The opening of Majeste is quite a hard, cold, metallic, rose to me, and not one I love as dearly as a lot of other roses.

    Rose Poivre, which I've sampled three times now, just reeks of fish to me. I won't be trying it again, though I would be curious to smell it on someone else. I can't think of a likely candidate, though. I am an admirer of JC Ellana's perfumes on the whole, but that one eludes me completely.

    By the way, I have a box set of samples from the potent Amouage range which I hid in the cupboard after a disaster with Eau d'Amouage. I suspect Amouage is an acquired taste. I think I'll give them another try next sampling day.
