    Started the day with a few drops of Coco extrait.
    Surprised: I actually bores me now A bit like looking at a face that is beautiful and discovering there is no depth or real intelligence behind that facade.

    So, adieu to Coco and hello to Cuir Mauresque.

    What a coincidence, Riannon, I just put on some CM myself! Must have been something inspiring in the Dutch air. So glad I'm finally giving this a full wearing now.

    Today it is finally colder and a perfect day for

    Nuit au Sérail

    Top: candied orange, spices
    Heart: amber, vanilla
    Base: powdery musks, honeyed woods.

    It starts very similar to Cinnabar and flows somewhere along the lines of Theorema and Eau de Narguilé. A true spicy oriental.

    Mmmmmm, everyone smells great!

    Tuvache Tuvara from Long Lost Perfumes for me today.

    Top notes: Chamomile, bergamot, lavender and aldehydes.
    Middle notes: Ylang-ylang, geranium, jasmine, patchouli, encens.
    Base notes: Sandalwood, myrrh, vetiver, labdanum, oakmoss, musk, patchouli and vanilla.

    Rich, spicy, sweet and comforting on this chilly and wet October day.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Feelin' figgy 'cause it's cooling off (70F - 21C) so it's a sample of Heeley Figuier. Think I'm going to overlay with some of KBE's Bogart Pour Homme that's bergamot and light florals and patchouli.

    Goes good with this Empress Grey tea and hunny!!

    Ayala Moriel - Song of Songs. Not quite sure what to make of this fragrance yet.... Reminds me a bit of liquorice wood (something I encountered at a heath food store in Atlanta a long time ago).

    I'm having a tough time identifying the notes - Ayala's listed notes are Labdanum, Myrrh, Olibanum Rose Maroc, Rose Otto (Turkish), Saffron Spikenard.

    Reasonably inoffensive for the office and is pretty linear on me.

    after reading Tigs and Indiscreet's postings, I decided to dirty up my Chanel no 5 (which is a lovely musk on its own in the drydown) with a dab of my Kama Xtreme on one wrist. But this doesn't do the trick, too much incense or smoke or soot, I need something that is a more warm oily musk.
    I may need to get myself some MKK after all, though my first impression upon sniffing a sample was, "This smells like butt crack!"

    The heart has its own reasons.
    "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."

    Today I gave Ava Luxe's Fumari another shot. The first time(s) I tried it I found it overly medicinal smelling and quite a turnoff. Today I applied it more sparingly and it was better. Still very medicinal (I'm thinking that could be the agarwood), but not so offputting. It's not for me, but I could see enjoying this on the right person.
