    Default SOTD Friday 18th April

    Lalique
    Eau de Lalique
    (2003)
    Emile Coopermann

    Top Notes: Mandarin, Cardamom, Citron, Bergamot, Dill
    Middle Notes: Freesia, Hibiscus, Cinnamon
    Base Notes: Amyris Wood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, White Musk, Guaiac Wood
    A bright, floral eau de cologne style fragrance with woody-musky base notes and a novel green note, dill.
    This lasts a long time and the drydown is very smooth. Also, reapplication is not a problem, as it can be with many eaux de cologne.

    Had an impromptu date that went very well. I was wearing a sample of the boring-a$$ Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme. I got an enthusiastic compliment anyway. I begrudgingly accepted it.

    Speaking on Duchaufour, I tested yesterday Sienne l'hiver and found some similarities with the drydown of Dzongka: both stunning scents indeed, so I bet too we will see something stunning soon from L'artisan.

    Seems the server's always bizzy and I have to practice patience here...think Grant is trying to get our 'drobes organized http://community.basenotes.net/showt...wpost&t=208938...and then there was that piece in the Style Section of the NYTimes yesterday (featuring the fabulous Chaya and the equally fabulous BaseNotes!!) ...http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/17/fa...html?ref=style...and I'm sure that caused MOLTO hits on the site. For better and worse....Nothing succeeds like success.

    Day Five of my ‘top five’ challenge continues with another
    Dry Woods fragrance – my favorite Russian (birch tar) leather.

    The best description I found came from our own Galamb_Borong:
    "The top notes open with an copal-myrrh note, but the fragrance quickly changes
    into a complex leather with civet, patchouli, birch tar and possibly hints of castoreum,
    iris and something that lightens the blend ( a tiny bit of something like sweet orange? )
    This is a rich, complex leather; the base notes remind me simultaneously
    of Givenchy Gentleman and Creed's Cuir de Russie."

    .

    Today is my birthday and I'm wearing L'Artisan's funky but defunct Vetiver. All the marketing studies suggest that it would be folly to make either of us ever again.
    And it's my 200th post, I think, which for shy persons is no small thing.

    Happy birthday, Strollyourlobster!!! Congrats also on your 200th post. Many happy returns of the day (and maybe L'artisan's Vetiver wasn't the best idea, but we BNers are sure glad YOU'RE around)!

    I have been having an intense craving for cardamom lately, and finally did something about it -- bought a cardamom single note perfume from Serena. It's perfect, especially for layering.

    Today I'm wearing Ava Luxe Cardamom layered with Annick Goutal Chevrefeuille. I'm finding it incredibly satisfying... the nosmic (is that a word? Figure it must be, based on "anosmic"! ) equivalent of scratching an itch!
    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
