    Default SotD Sunday 4 November

    Carven Vétiver, one of the most relaxing scents I have in my wardrobe: always guaranteed to bring zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs and/or make me feel calm and serene.

    Enjoy your Sunday, frag folks!

    One year ago I was looking for more information about an almost unknown fragrance I had just bought. Even the seller had hardly any info. But the scent was wonderful and so was the bottle.

    Maria Amalia by Morris

    A lovely Italian woman came to the rescue and went on a perfume hunt in Milan, digging up every detail and ending up buying the same EDP

    Little did we know that this fragrance would bring us a deep friendship. Thank you for this year, my dearest Lady in Black.

    Head notes: Cardamom balsam, lemon peel, ginger roots
    Heart notes: May rose, cinnamon leaves, nutmeg powder
    Base notes: Myrrh and incense, rosewood and patchouli.

    Hové Rue Royal. Don't know why there are no reviews for this at MUA. No notes given except to mention it contains musk. Huh? At any rate, closest thing it resembles from my wardrobe is Rochas Femme.

    George Sand by MPG

    this reminds me of a little shop on the rue de la Bucherie in the Marais district that sells carpets, jewelry, furniture, clothing and all manner of trinkets from Afghanistan. Something about the woods and spices that linger amongst these objects that makes me think of this perfume. Nice. Warm, woody spice with a touch of sweet, not too much.

    Top Note: Lemon, bergamot

    Heart Note: Patchouli, rose, amber

    Base Note: Musk, Mysore sandalwood

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'm testing Le Baiser du Dragon. I've had the decant since April, but I was unreasonably holding a grudge against it for leaking and making the labels on my other decants all sticky and strange. And... I like it! It's warm and a little dusty - is that the vetiver?

    Today is probably the coolest day temperatures in Miami that we've had all year! I am welcoming it with open arms. Two fall favorites today:

    Tea for Two by L'Artisan Parfumeur (from my stowed away sample...I cannot remember who sent me this?) and tonight the last few drops of my Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle (also from a stowed away sample from the Malle shop in Paris).

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. 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.

    Prada, which fits today very well.

    But, for some reason, I wish I had Prescriptives Calyx, which I haven't even smelled in over 10 years. I used to wear it all the time when it first came out. I need to smell it again soon.

    Tovah, how do you feel, darling?

    I was thinking about Calyx the other night -- that green bitterness will haunt one, that's for sure. If someone has any shareable amounts, can I please have a drop?

    SotD was Aoud Queen Roses by Montale Paris. I felt it fit perfectly for a casual performance of Orphee et Eurydice by my favourite opera kids, Liederwolfe. I haven't yet smelled Black Aoud and I feel that I should sample it before I go in for a full bottle of Aoud Queen Roses, since it seems like they would be rather similar. But I don't know if I can resist or wait. I love that leathery, medicinal aoud with the heavy, dusky, potent roses.
