    And a Prarie Home Companion moment (great podcast!)
    We have moved to a little village in the Zurcher Weinland, very pretty and tradtional. Today I was hanging out washing when I heard really loud cowbells (we've got used to the regular cowbells tinkling away in the field across the road), so went to look out of the front window. There was a procession of cows walking down the road to the winter pasture, wearing decorated head-dresses and huge cowbells. It's a traditional thing. Wonderful!

    It does my heart good to think there are still such places on Earth (she said as, quite literally, a jet roared overhead and cars and motorcycles and trucks vroomed by). Cows, internet and mail delivery--ahhh.

    Wearing some Boucheron this evening. Gosh, this is so beautiful.

    LedByMyNose, I think BPAL's Twighlight is positively bewitching. Adoreit. Wish more of their fragrances were as unique. Or that I could keep better track of their offerings, it might well be me.

    Also love L'Eau D'Hiver, though it's a totally different animal.

    Wordie, I want to come visit you and your cows!

    more probably tomorrow...

    I continued my week of testing CdG incense samples - I wore Kyoto to work today.

    SotE - I tried some Kate Moss Velvet Hour in the drugstore on the way home. My impressions - it's fine, but boring, kinda generic. I was hopeful because there was supposed to be incense, but I couldn't detect any. I will have to try it sometime later, when I haven't been testing the CdG incenses, but I doubt that this one will be full bottle worthy.

    Not only do I have wardrobe fragrances I haven't been wearing, I also have a huge backlog of samples (either bought or traded). So, today seemed like a good day for:

    Chanel 31 Rue Cambon

    Up to now, I had never given it a full wearing. Also, my first sample of this fragrance was a small dabber. Now I have a slightly larger atomizer sample/decant. I am starting to learn that the best way to sample is to start with an atomizer, even if it is a very small one. The dabber just did not give me a good idea of the development. Also at the time, I did not have any decanting supplies, so I was stuck with dabbing.

    Anyway, I LOVED this scent when I sampled it with the dabber. But, it seemed really short lived (maybe an hour or two). So, with my spray sample, I did my usual trick of spraying at least 4 sprays on my forearms (so the scent will be trapped by my sleeves).

    The first 2 out of 4 hours are magnificient--fermented fruit and dark florals. It is as if they took the boozy part of Coco, amped it up, and reduced the powder and aldehydes. I really don't get a chypre from this at all--it really seems like a fruit/floral to me, but not in the derogatory sense of the classification.

    However, after those initial hours, the scent turned sour. My skin really sucks sweetness away, so it is possibly a skin chemistry issue. It had a sort of classic or old fashioned quality--not the modern drydown I was expecting. And nothing at all like the incredible drydown of Coco. It simply smelled sour, musty and "off". That was where it stayed for the rest of the drydown (and is still detectable now, after about 12 hours).

    Needless to say, having a thorough test of a fragrance in several contexts is really important, especially if it is an expensive one! I am a bit disappointed--the opening is so amazing and enticing, and the drydown really detracts from the whole experience. Still, it is quite lovely, and I can see why so many people love it.

    EDIT: Scent of the Evening is Chanel Coco

    Tested Lutens BOIS DE VIOLETTE today. I really wanted it to move me, but it just didn't. Really nice fragrance, though!

    Loved the cowbell story, Wordbird!

    Good night, all.
