    Default SotD - Friday, 12 September 08

    Tabacco Toscano
    by Santa Maria Novella

    compiled from several sources:
    Tabacco Toscano is a fresh woody-spicy fragrance with
    floral and fruity topnotes of bergamot and jasmine
    on a base of Tuscan tobacco leaves, amber and birch leaves.
    The undertone of citrus, leather, musk, vanilla and burnt malt
    reveals a warm and comfortable sensation.
    An elegant and distinguished fragrance.

    I am layering this with a tiny amount of Musk Ghazelle.
    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

    My take on this one is that it's a beautiful snapshot of what masculine elegance seemed like at the turn of the last century; and having said that, I want it to be the epitome of masculine elegance today as well! The feeling I get when I wear this is superb, like walking on air. No matter what's going on in my day-to-day pedestrian existence, I can't believe there's anything to be concerned about if I smell this good. It's just that it's hard to be other than carefree when I'm wearing this; it takes an effort to feel I'm seriously responsible for anything other than existing and communing with the beauty of life.If there's one word for this scent, as far as I can tell, it would have to be "optimistic."

    A first-edition (1969) of Guerlain's Chamade EdT that I just got for a song off eBay. Old as hell, but even the bergamot-blast is preserved intact along with the leathery accord of hyacinth, blackcurrant and sandal.

    BTW: Just ordered a copy of Françoise Sagan's novel "La Chamade" to see if Jean-Paul Guerlain's famous "perfumed elevator" scene is really in there...

    Revisiting Domenico Caraceni from a sample. I tried it once a few months ago and thought it was pleasant but nothing too remarkable. I'm enjoying it much more this time. I could see this getting into my top 10 in time, I think I'll have to pick up a decant of this.

    Congrats to Dimitri and Mira!!!

    Expect me and Mr. Diva sometime early this evening for dessert.

    I'm off for a truly crazy-busy day in something called Guinevere, Dreams of Avalon Blend by Possets. A Possets exclusive for this web vendor, this one is noticeably less sweet than many of the standard Possets line, and quite lovely. No note list is given, other than Sandalwood as the main focus, and I'm getting some clove and sweet ginger notes too. Mmmmm.

    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

    HAPPYHAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO M/M DIMI!!!!!

    Mr. Guerlain - I am SO jealous....vintage Chamade here is astronomical here if and when you can find it. Let us know if the elevator scene (pant pant) is in there....

    Roberto and Dimi: your pix are so gorgeous!

    Had to scrummage around on the bottom shelf of the etagere to find the divine

    that the equally divine SMM had chosen for me today. "Amber veil" describes it perfectly - delicate yet pervasive - from the surprising citrus opening to the heady drydown.

    Head Notes: Italian Green Mandarin, Cardamom.
    Heart Notes: Myrrh, Incense, Opoponax.
    Base Notes: Madagascar Vanilla, Australian Sandalwood, Patchouli

    The superior quality of this very modestly priced line (right now 1.7 oz. of the parfum is on sale for 25 clams!!) never fails to astound and thrill. I think any of you guys who like amber could carry this off easily. Thanks Mark!!
