Thread: SOTD Friday 1 June
Purple Patchouli by Tom Ford (sample 11 of 12)
Where once there was no scents to it all, now the world opens before me!
Diptyque : The Essence of John Galliano
I bought a bottle of this couple of months ago. Although it is officially a room spray, I really enjoy this one as a personal fragrance. The complexity on my skin is no worse than with many EdT`s or EdP`s I know. It has even somekind of developing qualities. Sure it is a bit "raw" scent, but that is just fine. Lasts a long time too - whole day through, actually.
Straight from the bottle (+couple of hours) this is strikingly similar to the smell you get when you rub some especially smoky and peaty Scotch whiskey on your hand; later on it turns a bit more insence like scent with obvious hints of birch tar and iris.

Iris 39 by Le Labo
Fresh and powdery iris with edgy patchouly
Nice blend of air and earth - like a good old oxymoron `fresh zesty smoke`
Vettiveru - CdG
Arden for Men Sandalwood EdC. One of the great, lost, men's classics.

Parfum d'Empire Iskander
I'm in Musc Ravageur, but today it smells sweeter than usual on me. I have not worn this for several weeks due to an adverse reaction to coumarin, but thus far I have no perfume rash today.
Switched to Kiton at the last minute.

I've trademarked the color bleu
DSH - Fleurs de Mure on one wrist/arm - Black Leather on the opposing. The blackberry flowers are sweet and light - the leather dark, the tanning chemicals still clinging - could use a bit of sweat. But have only had it on for a half hour and these DSH's usually take an hour or so to truly bloom.

Today I am in Kingdom with Madame X extrait at certain pulse points
"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."
