Yr good bud,

Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

Versailles pour Homme by Jean Desprez
Lalique Lion edp homme & deo stick
Dolce & Gabbana PH - bought as a blind buy. Liking it a lot.
From a mini-decant from the Marvelous Mouse - Caron's Montaigne. MY kind of almost-aloof, soignee Grande Dame, drawing room floral with a powdery sandalwood undercurrent. "notes of jasmine, bitter orange, mandarin, mimosa, blackcurrant, coriander, vanilla and Mysore sandalwood..." (from a BN reviewer). Seamless and shimmering - NOT appropriate for tai chi but frankly, Scarlett - I don't give a damn!!
P.S. Some guys love to wear this too! Check it out!!!

Blue Amber by Montale -- this from a sample generously sent by Lightninrod.
Lovely stuff. This one, btw, can boast of the purest amber note I've ever encountered in a frag.
The vanilla in it reminds me of the vanilla in Chergui and in Musc Ravageur -- good quality, pure, sweet, creamy vanilla devoid of vanillin-esque synthetic sharpness.

Molinard de Molinard 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...
Fou d'Absinthe. The sky is a monolithic grey, the leaves are turning their myriad colours, and this fragrance is working beautifully.

You are not your perfume.
"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
