    Default SotD - Saturday 20 Oct 07

    It's been 16 days since the parcel that contains Guerlain Vetiver, Preferred Stock and Mat; Very Male was sent from America, and still I haven't received it, which is totally weird. I have been wanting to come up here and say my SotD is Guerlain Vetiver.

    Alas, it has to be Burberry Brit instead.

    I have tested it, but for the first time I will spend a whole day with Quorum by Antonio Puig.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Still awash in my old fave Casmir de Chopard...mango and sandalwood, great to sleep in. Nosing (!!!) around I find the parfumeur is the same guy that did Voleur de Roses and a bunch of Bonds. It figures.

    Hoping to go back to bed - and launder self - and indulge in Madame X for the Ava Luxe Experience. And wouldn't you know - her site is down, right now.

    I think I'll start with Madame X, for the oriental amber category of Ava Luxe week.
    for all I know I may stay in it all week, one never knows these days.
    I seem to be latching on to one scent...I think it's a comfort, security blanket kind of thing.

    "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."

    Starting off Ava Luxe week testing three ambers I've been saving:

    Amber Essence
    Dark Amber
    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

    A lot of Vetiver today, and I went for Vetiver as well. It must be the cooler weather, it just screams for a shot of vetiver, don't you think?

    SotE tonight will be Geir Ness for an 80th birthday, large dinner party for an old friend I worked for as an electrical apprentice many years ago.



    The low-sillage but wonderfully fragrant Geir will make the high humidity and lingering heat of this late Autumn Florida day a bit more tolerable
