I have a confession to make: yesterday when I was aglow with Samsara, it wasn't only the Samsara. I LAYERED the Samsara with FLEURS d'ORANGER.
Yes. I did.
I was thinking that the sweet smoothness of Samsara was going to be too monotonous for me, like the wheel of life and incarnation after incarnation for which it was named.
So I spiced it up a bit with the tried and true Saffron and Orange Blossom bite of Serge.
It was HEAVEN.
I name this creation, the Last Incarnation.
"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
