Guerlain Vetiver [Jean Paul Guerlain, 1961]
"He was some kind of a man... What does it matter what you say about people?"
Started with a sample of Penhaligon Lily and Spice from a generous BNer (you know who you are!!) which is just what it says, and light and lovely. May give it some help with Divine L'Infante - the notes include Chinese jasmine, peony, black currant leaves, vanilla, tonka beans and musk. I smell goooooood!!

Guerlain's Vetiver today.
Back home after a weekend in LA. A little sad and irritated with the Maryland humidity, although it does bring out the nuances of the Vetiver.
Dior Homme for me today.
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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Aimez Moi, because Riannon said so.
"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
a crisp and warmish day in Massachusetts seems like the perfect time to wear C&S No. 88, before the soon-to-arrive and inevitable humidity makes me smell like a cathouse on payday.
VIW on right wrist, Erolfa on left. I couldn't decide which to wear, so I chose the Solomonic approach.
