" 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."

Vetiver The Great!!!
Today will be the sparkling, summery Floris Pink Grapefruit, suggested by musse on the "Pick My SotD" thread.
And yesterday was Hermèssence Poivre Samarcande, suggested by Taolady. Whiffs of peppery wonderfulness all day long.
Both of these scents were perfect picks for changing up the routine and rediscovering neglected favorites.
Sniff and let sniff.

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

Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Armani Mania as SotD. Seems fitting given the state of the atmosphere on both sides of the Florida coast.

"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"

Van Cleef & Arpels
Gaultier² on a terribly inclement day
Patou pour Homme
SoTM: Le Parfum D'Interdits Absolument Absinthe, which is supposed to smell different on different people. On me, light and milky/minty. Just ok.
Notes: Absinthe, cannabis, black tea, bergamot, Iranian galbanum, lily of the valley, lotus flower, jasmine, ylang-ylang, nutmeg, Ceylon cardamom, sandalwood, musks.
SoTA: Septimanie Perfumes Pavillon des Fleurs. A very dirty, sexy take on white flowers. Thank goodness (for me) no gardenia. I think men could definitely wear it well. Love this stuff!
Notes: Egyptian jasmine and Comoran ylang, orange blossom, English leather, iris and lily of the valley.
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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Amoureuse(2002)Michel RoudnitskaTop Notes: Mandarin Wood, Cardamom
Middle Notes: Tuberose, Jasmine, Tahitian White Ginger
Base Notes: Cedar, Moss, Sandalwood, Honey
Amoureuse is one of four DelRae offerings, all by Michel Roudnitska, the son of Edmond Roudnitska, another nose of some repute. Amoureuse is a kind of chypre, with typical citrus in the top and oakmoss in the base, but it is a little woodier and greener than most floral chypres. Its sojourn on my skin begins with a floral bouquet, slightly sharpened and enlivened by tangerine, and discreetly spiced by cardamom. At the end comes a beautiful accord of cedar, moss, sandalwood, and honey. In the middle of this, the source of the floral accord, is a bouquet of white flowers: tuberose, jasmine, and white ginger flower. Apart form the tropical nature of this accord (which reminds me of things I smelled on vacations in the islands of the Pacific), is the unusual blending of white ginger into the mix. This is the beautiful scent of the lily Hedychium coronarium, whose original range is in the Nepalese and Indian Himalayas. How to describe this scent? It's rich, penetrating, with a slightly acerbic edge, and definitely heady. It's not a very common note in perfumery, but it gets some use in "female" scents; however, I think in this accord it can be very sexy on the right man. (Me!)
Yr good bud,

Another beautiful day here, and I'm making it another day in the beautiful R&G Extra Vieille. Bar soap, shower gel, body lotion, and edc all over again. I get fantastic duration of this cologne with all these products of it.
Almost went with Guerlain Vetiver though, because this morning when I used my nose hair trimmer I realized I'd last used it on a day I was wearing Guerlain Vetiver. Smelled really good.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
