    Default SotD, Tuesday, 13 May 2008

    Chopard
    Casran
    (2000)
    Nathalie Lorson

    Top note: Lemon, Lavender, Nutmeg, Birch leaves
    Middle note: Tarragon, Geranium, Rose, Anise
    Base note: Cedarwood, Sandal, Vanilla, Amber
    There are different versions of the notes: some include rum, ambered cherries, and chocolate; others, Moroccan geranium. I couldn't tell you everything that's in this one; but the overall impression is spicy and oriental, and maybe a hint of green and leather. This is certainly an energizing scent for me. It has a great deal of "presence" without being loud or raucous.
    A bit sharp at first (perhaps the nutmeg and anise?), it dries down to a suave and elegant finish.

    Sampling L'artisan Timbuktu. This one has a rather impressively long list of notes but it just seems to fall flat for me. I can hardly smell it, and what I can seems kinda 'green', a slight floral, and something vaguely medicinal. Just seems kind of bland and boring on me unfortunately.

    I had the same feelings about Timbuktu when I first sampled it. Now I own a bottle and the fragrance is one of the strongest I've ever encountered. It also lasts more than 24 hours and most important I'm able to detect it anytime. When I made a side by side comparison with Dzongkha, it was perfectly clear for me that I prefer Timbuktu by a mile.

    I'm in one of my favourite standby scents, Un Parfum des Sens & Bois by TDC, nose Celine Ellena.

    This is peppery white violets with ginger. It is both delicate and woody at the same time, an intriguing combination. It is always a huge pleasure to wear, and holds my interest throughout its lifecycle. I love the bottle, the colour of the juice, and the scent. TDC is a wonderful house.

    Still had a sample of this lying around, time for a first wearing now. Quite pleasant spices and flowers that seem to work well in the sun.

    I'm sitting at the airport waiting for my connecting flight to Denver. I left the house in a bit of a rush as the cab service was early and didn't pick a SotD for the flight. Also forgot my neck pillow and just bought yet another. I could open a neck pillow shop. Southwest Regional Airport has at least two Brighton stores and I didn't know they carried fragrance. I'm wearing Dream on the left arm and Laugh on the right. Laugh smelled nice in the bottle, but then the jasmine hit my skin and did its evil little thing. A la Nuit this is not. Dream on the other hand is a not unpleasant fruity floral. Their website states: "The Dream scent is an oriental floral with peach and melon notes combined with florals of rose, jasmine, carnation, orange flowers and ylang ylang. A dry-down of patchouli, musk and spices with a note of white ginger." Fairly lightweight and pleasant. The bottles are very lovely; decorated with Brighton's signature silver frou frou flourishes.

    Like these two scents, I'm having mixed feelings-- happy to be going home, but sad to leave my Mom.
