Davidoff Cool Water again. I need more good-weather scents.
Town & Country
by Crown Perfumery
A discontinued masterpiece that has been on my mind since
sampling it a few months ago. I finally tracked down a 100ml
bottle in the Netherlands, it arrived yesterday!
Introduced in 1925, it is a crisp mossy masculine chypre with notes
of clary sage, lavender, rosemary, wild thyme and musk.
It shares a number of notes with Blenheim Bouquet and
is often compared to it. While I also have and love
Blenheim Bouquet, Town & Country seems a little deeper
and mossier and, to my nose, is the superior of the two.
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
Guerlain - Aqua Allegoria Angelique-Lilas.
What a marvelous scent! The lilac is stupendous. It maybe geared toward woman, but, guys, don't be afraid to try this. It's NICE!
I love Jasmine.

Narciso Rodriguez "For her" edt.
Editions de Parfum Frederic Malle's BOIS D' ORAGE.
"A great perfume is a work of art, it can lift our days, haunt our nights and create the milestones of our memories. Fragrance is liquid emotion. And that never goes out of fashion. " MICHAEL EDWARDS

"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Les Parfums de Rosine
Eau Fraîche Rose d'Été
Top Notes: Citrus, Mandarine, Pear
Middle Notes: Yellow Rose, Lime Flower Oil, Mimosa, Lotus Flower
Base Notes: Amber, Musk Ambrette
A rose scent with a difference; this is made, I believe, as a warm-weather alternative to "bigger" rose fragrances. Pear in the top contributes to a lighter, fresher and fruitier introduction; the heart accord tempers a yellow rose oil and absolute with a lime flower "neroli," and light, green-tinged florals of mimosa and lotus; the base is largely a vegetal musk, ambrette seed, a good fixative with a light touch as well. This is a great daytime wear for hot days and an elegant companion for warm summer nights. Take note: this is a limited edition — a very suave and yet intriguing one.
Yr good bud,

Guerlain Vetiver for the morning
"Faites des bêtises, mais faites les avec enthousiasme !" Colette
today it is a 5* scent I am in:
This is what I expected from Idole de Lubin and didn't get. Here the rum wafts in on a cloud of spice and then gives way to the leather underneath. When I wore Idole the rum hung on stubbornly so it smelled like a bar after closing time on me.
The worst part about liking this one is that it is discontinued and I'm going to have trouble finding more.
Have a great day everyone.

Happy birthday Lizzie_j and good day everyone!
Despairing at the hot, sticky weather (BLECH! ) and testing Lubin L'Eau Neuve from a sample today. It's hitting all the right spots for me in this steamy weather. L'eau Neuve may have been released in 1968, but it doesn't feel dated or retro to me at all. Very nice! Oh dear.

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

"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
