Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

Starting this stormy week with Guerlain's LIU (Les Parisiennes EdP reissue) - think Mouchoir de Monsieur with rose instead of lavender, and some aldehydes to sparkle it up.

Have a good week, all.

" Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain."

Today its a sample of:
Solid, functional scent that I like just fine. In a world full of many more interesting things, I can't see wanting this one on even a semi-regular basis.

The recent thunderstorm-strewn weather in Boston is making me cranky. I love thunderstorms, but this endless ALMOST storming... My mood seems to be affected rather directly by barometric pressure, which is currently stuck at "intolerably high" here. Phhhhht.
I'm wearing Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's Anathema.
Notes: Black opium, with vetivert and honeysuckle.

the weather is unpleasantly hot and humid today, and this scent cloys ever so slightly. a musk base really kicks into gear with the weather. the overall impression is of some highly fragranced souk at mid-day. ah, the power of scent

It's 8:41 am MST, 'an it's already 27C here... Reaching for the always refreshing Guerlain Vetiver- like a/c in a bottle!
- A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...
I'm afraid to get close to any of the females in the office.
I am wearing Nanadebary Green today, hoping that it helps with the humidity!

SOTD/E: Aramis JHL. Still giving the "heavier" frags a try in hot humid weather. Thus far it is working out surprisingly well!
Carlo Corinto Vetyver for me today. The last few days have had wonderful mornings, twilights, and evenings, but blasted hot afternoons. I picked this scent for the afternoon.
