    Like days of old. Lighting the spark of love that fills me

    Parfums DelRae
    Début
    (2004)
    Michel Roudnitska
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Lime, Green Notes
    Middle Notes: Lily of the Valley, Linden Blossom,
    Ylang-Ylang, Cyclamen
    Base Notes: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Musk
    This is a fairly green floral perfume. It starts with a citrus top note sweetened with ylang-ylang and moderated slightly by green leaves. The heart blooms with muguet and cyclamen, softened by the slightly acerbic note of linden flowers. The base is a woody-musky blend, which supports the whole as effortlessly as if it floated on air above.

    According to Lafcony: “This masculine scent, with a pleasing mix of tobacco and leather
    has decisive and dry undertones. The perfect gift for a man.”

    I went a bit crazy so I'm wearing 6 at the moment.

    On my left arm: Castile (a masculine... something, don't get any citrus), Cereus No. 7 (kind of an odd citrus), and Cereus No. 11 (reminds me of T&H's Trafalgar a bit).

    On my right: Grafton by T&H (all I can make out is the leather at this point), Space.NK Man (great scent, pretty poor longevity), and my still favorite, In Motion.
    My limited 'drobe: Boss In Motion, Armani Code, Concentre d'Orange Verte, Paul Smith Story.

    Today I have been too busy to put on something (am still in my nighties....), because hubby and daughter found out that they should take a trip to Stockholm, which means I had to try to find zillions of "neccesary" things they would probably not need to bring with them.
    They left ten min. ago.
    Hooray!! Vacation for me. :bounce:

    Off to take a shower, spray on some Yvresse, and google orange bottles.....

    Sampled Chergui (thanks to Musse!) today. I'm not sure of the notes on this one, but it just felt very very GREEN. Kind of a harsh, medicinal green at that. I've decided that 'green' scents are perhaps not really my thing. I prefer softer, sweeter scents.

    Happy day to everyone!
    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

    Parfum Sacre.
    This one used to come off alot more lemony to me, but lately I think it is more of a spicy musk, lots of cardamom, and a peppery rose.
