    PARFUMERIEGENERALE
    INTRIGANTPATCHOULI

    Notes :
    patchouli, Mysore sandalwood, benzoin, citrus/hesperides, cinnamon, amber, musk, vanilla, honey

    On application has a very calming effect on me, the patchouli and the sandalwood coming together in a slightly heady harmony. Not sweet at all, plentifully meditative and superiorly full bodied as all PG fragrances are with terrific lasting...we're talking 8+ hours with just 2 medium sprays. While it manages to smell sufficiently complex to my nose, I do not find it "sexy" or "exotic" however. It's simply "down to earth" and stays that way on my skin.

    D'Humeur Massacrante by L´Artisan Parfumeur, picked out for my SotD by Taolady.

    It´s a very unusual scent because of it strong peppery feeling, there is a bit of smoke but not much nor do I detect any other notes (vanilla) that would soften it up. It´s not as warm and spicey as Arabie, but it´s a clear waft of peppers. Maybe peppers in the springtime so the air is crisp and filled with peppers.

    It´s very strange and I don´t wear this often because it feels a little misplaced, it´s not very strong luckily and has an airy quality to it which makes it more wearable.

    It doesn´t really change my mood, then again it´s monday morning not much can change my mood on a monday morning. I don´t feel aggressive or angry or anything red/mean. I´m not more awake either.

    What is funny is that you can clearly feel it is part of a set, this airy and crips quality also returns in some of the other humeurs and the smokeyness is a very subdued smokeness of the d´humeur rien ( i think it was, i traded it away)the heavy incense smokey one.

    Once I have glass sampler vials again I´ll let you all know so more people can sample it from here
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Hi, everyone! Back from the hinterlands of no internet access and dashing (again) off to work fairly early in the gorgeous Amouage Jubilation XXV. This is stunningly gorgeous. The men's version smells much, much better on me than the feminine "25," although I recognize both as beautifully done fragrances.

    Notes (from Luckyscent): Frankincense, labdanum ciste, coriander, davana, blackberry, orange, gaicwood, rose, honey, bay, orchid, cinnamon, clove, celery seed, opoponox, patchouli, myrrh, musk, moss, atlas cedarwood, ambergris, oud, immortelle.

    My SotD is the same one I wore to bed last night:

    It's lovely.

    Today is the first day of Fall. It's the equinox. The seasons are turning. The birds sound a little sad this morning.

    Have a good one!

    On the assumption that I would be sharing an office today with someone who didn't feel well, I left home without applying perfume. There was a change of plan when I arrived at work, so I applied the best I could find in my bag today - I'm not carrying my usual mobile stash. I would have changed from Goutals, as I've worn them for days on end. I've loved them all, of course, but there are so many other beauties to choose from, so I felt like a change. However, here am I again in Grand Amour and loving every unplanned whiff of it.

    You know, Sestra, I'm not a floral girl and even less a Goutal girl, but I developed a strange attachment to Grand Amour, so much so that I had to get me a bottle (EdP). Hyacynth is a floral note different enough from the usual ones to keep me attracted the whole day. And I love the full oriental drydown.

    A healthy and peaceful equinox day to my many lovely BN companions.

    F I N A L L Y ... I'm samping Nou, courtesy of the courteous Taolady
    I wanted to wear this on a day I wasn't running around and distracted.
    The top notes are pleasantly soapy. Will update as the scent progresses.

    Many-hours-later update:
    Not a lot of activity to report. Soap changed to mildly floral. Clearly nothing offensive in NOU, but entirely ho-hum. When it was wet from the open vial, I got a sense of fresh rose, but that never manifested upon application.

    I'm testing Spirit of Water today at the same time as Prada's Infusion d'Iris to test whether they smell alike. And they don't. But they both remind me of baby products -- lotion or oil.

    Parfum d'Empire Osmanthus Interdite. I had this sample from Aus Liebe zum Duft and wanted it to compare it with TDC Osmanthus. TDC's is much subtler, peachier, almost like a breeze of a scent.

    SotE is Badgley Mischka, which I'd had on my "to try" list forever. It smells wonderful, luxe. It is, in my fantasy, the type of expensive fragrance that a very stylish Italian woman would wear. An elegant fragrance.

    Edited to add: It came to me what this reminds me of...a cross between Coco and Diva. My husband doesn't like it, though. He says it's "too strong, too stinky." (sigh!).

    Back to chypres in an oldie but goodie-- Fantasque by Avon. It was developed by designer Louis Féraud in 1981, and in high school I loved this and Foxfire before I knew what a chypre was. ("She fer real, or is her nose broke?") I don't know how to describe what Fantasque is, but I can say what it's not. It's not as dry and green as Safari; it's not as floral as Paloma P. or Agent P.; it's not fruity. I sampled No 19 this past summer in the heat, but I still think this is less lush and green than the Chanel. Definitely less heady. There is some green vetiver, and definitely floral (rose, jasmine?), and maybe a hint of powder. It's just very nice, soft, and refined. This refinement reminds me of the Aoumage Silver Cristal I tried recently. It's very easy to wear, for a chypre.

    In other news, I rescued a bird last night! I don't know how the cats caught a bird (a dove, actually) at night (I guess it was in a tree), but someone had brought it all the way to the back door, and then everyone wanted to play too! Ack! I keep wicker baskets on the back porch with old bath towels in them for the cats to sleep in. I grabbed one of those towels and wrapped the dove up carefully, then walked it over to the almond tree (the branches are too small to support a cat). I tried to encourage it to emerge from the towel and sit on a branch, but the poor thing was really in shock, missing some tail feathers, and definitely not up for it. So I deposited the whole towel in the branches and left it alone for a while. A couple of hours later I came back. The dove began to flutter inside the towel when it saw the flashlight, so I went back inside for the evening. Late this morning after a visit from the plumber, I remembered the little fellow and went to check. I saw the towel empty and started looking in the tree. It was sitting on a branch about a foot in front of the towel and freaked when we locked eyes, flying quickly away and over the roof of a neighbor's house. Hopefully, he'll be fine. The towel was full of bird poop and the cats are still mad that I took away their new friend toy distraction.
