    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.

    Today I am wearing Recital. Off to the hairdresser's to get my mad hair sorted (and why is it that the day before you have it cut, everyone and his dog starts complimenting you on how good your hair looks? What's that about?)...and I'll be hoping for comments on my lovely perfume! :-)

    I was ready to start with an Oriental / Amber fragrance for the Ava Luxe Week, but I scrubbed it off to change in every lavender scent I have in my wardrobe.

    Starting with Encens et Lavande, followed by Caron Pour Un Homme, followed by Fragonard's Lavande, followed by.......

    Shall we say that I am upset?

    I think I'll start with Madame X, for the oriental amber category.
    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."

    Ava Luxe Madame X it is - notes of coriander, acacia farnesiana, freshly cut hay, jasmine, rose, labdanum, leather, incense, patchouli, oakmoss, civet, ambergris, castoreum, sandalwood, musks and vanilla....not necessarily in that order on me.

    The labdanum and leather open immediately with the roses and jasmine purring underneath. The sandalwood and musks are there from the beginning too with that nice sexy castoreum humming along all the time. Such a ladylike slut - perfect for this warmish day. I adore this scent.

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


    Sweet Amber Wood
    Amber Essence
    Dark Amber

    Just a couple of minutes in, I believe SAW may be a HG for me, Amber Essence is right behind it. WOW!!! [[[doing the happy scent discovery dance]]]

    Dark Amber (first impressions) is deep and lovely, but reminds me of maple syrup!
    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...

    I have a little sample of Ambre Tibet but I couldn't wait to try on my blind buy, Sin. (My Avas only turned up this morning - talk about leaving it to the last minute! On the minus side, I have a cold, but although my nose may be a little off, it's not completely blocked and I can smell reasonably well).
    Sin started out a bit sharper than I expected but the amber is coming through now.

You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    Started the day with best intentions in Ava Luxe "Venice" her interpretation of Biagiotti's Venezia. But it wasn't a day meant only for AL, apparently.
    So I changed to Parfumerie Générale Corps et Ames and am revisiting Parfums d'Imperficition O' Alquimista on one wrist.

    I think most of my Ava Luxe samples fall into the gourmand category (can't double-check right now).

    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.

    Understated, low sillage and just plain wonderful fragrance to help tolerate this abominably warm and humid Florida late Autumn.
