    This morning I was craving that complex chocolatey, ambery, cinnamony combination that is Amorito + Eau des Vanilliers + Vanille Passion + Ambre (L'Occitane). So I'm wearing that combination again

    Hello, Mousie !
    [I thought of you earlier, when I heard our tiny resident scurrying under the gas stovetop; I always blow him a kiss ,an audible one- every morning]

    Such lovely aromas...
    I'm going w/ Bois des Iles again, but hoping my Bois 1920 Real Patchouly arrives....
    That stuff is intoxicating.

    Many plans today, lots of order-making.
    SIGH.
    I'm really pooped.

    Loving you all...

    Sweet Oriental Dream - Montale

    First time from my FB, and it´s so good to spray with happy abandon. And people started sniffing me at work and go hmmmm, so I think that is a compliment. And it does smell fantastic, warm, sweet with some oriental dessert spices. It´s a nice variation on the gourmands you smell ever so often here with chocolate and vanilla.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Not sure what to wear today - I was yearning for L'Heure Bleu yesterday but now I've read Asha's description of Coco, I'm very tempted to go with that. And let's fce it, both perfumes are equally good with jeans, a jumper and playgroup. Oh, playgroup. Ah, well it'll be L'Heure Bleu then. Don't want to scare the horses... [Ah nope, see below!]

    Hope you get to have a nap this afternoon Chaya. Hugs to you. Sleep is good. Food is good. Warmth is good.

    Have a lovely day all.

    Later:
    Well, that didn't quite work out as planned... sorry SMM you'll have to put me down for L'Artisan's Vanilia as my SOTD. It was the sample I found in my handbag in the car on my way to playgroup when I realised I *gasp!* had left the house without spritzing!

    I've since tried Ferre de Ferre (the new one but NOT the Rose) and liked it so much I bought a little bottle right there in the shop. I'd heard of this Bourdon creation and wanted to try it as it's been described as a 'sister' to Iris Poudre he created for Malle a few years before. It is indeed similar and it's very pretty - I'll sniff them side by side before describing them both. Hard to get hold of though - this is the first time I've spotted it in a shop. But a LOT less expensive than Iris Poudre. I'm happy I found it.

    Sunday 2 November 2008
    Morning: Profumum Thundra
    Afternoon: too many to list!
    Evening: Annick Goutal Ambre Fétiche



    I stopped by Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills late Sunday afternoon. I tried a lot of new things at Barneys, including most of the entire i Profumi di Firenze line. The real stand-out was the oceanic fragrance Brezza di Mare which, along with Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561 Hyle, gives my favorite oceanic fragrance Profumum Acqua di Sale a run for its money. There is a watermelon note in Brezza di Mare which really complements the rest of the fragrance; it's extremely well done. I consider these three to be the best oceanic fragrances currently on the market.

    I tried three of the oriental Eaux de Parfum from Annick Goutal: Myrrhe Ardente, Ambre Fétiche, and Encens Flamboyant. They are all quite good, but especially the Ambre Fétiche, which is one of the better amber fragrances that I have tried, with an interesting smoky component. It's also quite strong, and lasts forever. I decided to spring for a bottle.

    I also tried each of the Byredo Parfums: Green, Pulp, Gypsy Water, Chembur, and Rose Noir. Gypsy Water is an amber-like sandalwood creation that is excellent aside from the fact that it was a bit too powdery in the drydown for my tastes. Pulp was the most interesting. It hits you with lots of fruit, the most prominent of which is my favorite: fig. I think there might also be some black currant floating around in there somewhere, but I'm not sure.

    I finally tried Jean-Claude Ellena's newer Hermès creation Un Jardin Après La Mousson, and liked it very much. This has a much riper melon than the previous two in the Jardin series, coupled with a very nice marine note. It's being marketed as feminine, which is approximately correct. As much as I enjoyed it, I don't think I could carry it off in a corporate environment. It seems like it would be a real winner for women, however. I brought home a couple of samples for my girlfriend. I'm idly hoping she says she likes it, so I can buy some.

    Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 was also available for sampling. I'm not a huge fan of patchouli (bad memories from an ex-girlfriend who used to practically bathe in it), so even the tasty chocolate note in this elixir couldn't save it for me.

    By the time I was finished at Barneys, I only had about 20 minutes for Saks Fifth Avenue, but managed to sample Dsquared2 He Wood. I was not very impressed. There was a faint cedar note in the background with a fairly uncommon floral top note (maybe violet, not sure). In any case, not bottle-worthy in light of what else is available out there. I thought of impulse purchasing some Tom Ford For Men Extreme at the last minute, but eventually came to my senses. I spent the last few minutes ogling the bright yellow Ferrari F430 coupe parked by the back door, then went home.

    Looks like we're all starting the week off wothout too much in the way of life annoyances thrown at us.
    I am wearing a new acquisition of a discontinued scent (thanks Buzzlepuff):

    Aramis Havana

    I bought this blind because both chaya and Scentmother told me I needed it. As usual, they were right. Although on first sniff I wasn't so sure. At first this smells like the top note of Aramis but within a few minutes this mix of spice and floral breaks out. What is amazing about this is the extremely slow progression to the base as it takes a long time for the woods in the base to come out but when they do they're accompanied by tobacco and hints of vanilla making this feel very much like a gourmand at the end. What a crazy quilt of notes this one is and how good it all comes together.
    Have a great Monday everyone.

    Scent twins with Ailuros this morning in Dans Tes Bras, also from a set of samples ordered recently from F. Malle. I'm trying to keep an open mind, but I'm not sure this one is for me. Give it time, though. I instantly fell in love with yesterday's Le Parfum de Therese, but perhaps because it smells familiar as well as beautiful.

    Have a good Monday everybody.

    I agree. I loved Parfum de Therese from the first sniff, too. I'll probably wear Dans tes Bras again from the sample, but I don't think I'll be getting a bottle.

    With Wordbird and Dimples, I am wearing L'Heure Bleu, in extrait. I feel like I should be wearing velvet and a long silk scarf. Well, perhaps I will go and put on tha scarf. I am taking the day off from work to go to MOMA to see the Van Gogh exhibit with my husband.

    Lilybelle, Ailuros: I too loved Parfum de Therese from the very first sniff. Hence, the nom de plume. Some fragrances are like that. You know right away. In my case, it felt like a homecoming. When the FM store first opened in Paris, I visited and went sniffing from cylinder to cylinder. When I sniffed Parfum de Therese, my eyes filled with tears and I said to the SA, "It smells like my grandmother." "What did your grandmother wear?" she asked. "Miss Dior, mostly" I replied. Oh la la. And she told me about Roudnitska's career. My bottle is almost empty, and I will surely replace.
