    Hey- a big Happy B-Day to Grant from Maine too!

    Haven't actually gone to bed yet, but am still wearing a bit of Kai, so I guess that counts.

    Have a great Boxing Day everyone.

    Costume National Scent Intense for me today. Going to work and suspect some customers might want to give me a punch on the nose if I mention something about Boxing Day, as no one observes it here. Pity!

    I'm wearing my beloved Songes edp again. The juice in my 50ml bottle is a lovely red colour, but when I look at pictures of this fragrance it always looks more golden. I prefer the red. One of the moon bottles looks positively yellow, but I have seen one whose glass is decorated in darker colours to reflect the quality of night that Songes evokes. I'm tempted to buy a dark moon bottle as I love this perfume so much and cannot envisage ever tiring of it. The dark bottle may be a limited edition that is now unavailable. What a pity I didn't think of this before Christmas.

    I also have Ormonde Jayne's Frangipani on the back of my hand. It is interefering with Songes so will have to be retested another day.

    In your honour, I am wearing Ormonde Man from a sample. It strongly reminds me of Ormonde Woman, the black hemlock being the most evident note on my skin.

    Have a great Boxing Day, all!

    Happy B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y Grant!

    Le Labo Rose 31 on the left wrist and The Different Company Rose Poivrée on the right, I declared that I prefer R31 than RP. Rose Poivrée is obscenely surreal, like a real rose picked from a garden but soiled. I really admire the perfumer who can make it so real, but it is something that I can't wear out but only to sniff out from a bottle or a test strip.

    Well put. I thought so too. I would go for the Rose Absolu. It had more patchoui and vanilla in the base and therefore was warmer and had more substance.

    Happy generally normal day to everyone. And a birthday wish for Grant.

    Today I made fruitcake scones to use up some odds and ends of candied fruit I had around. Otherwise I'll still have it for next year.

    I am testing Un Parfum d'Ailleurs et Fleurs by TDC. It was recommended by someone as a lower key tuberose fragrance, and it is that.

    Though I dabbed on my sample, and I have a feeling that spritzing might yield a different result. Anyone know?
