    Smile SotD Tuesday 18 November

    NUIT NOIRE ( from samples ), Mona di Orio

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Farouche

    Yesterday's post of Nukapai's visit to Roja Dove made me want to visit this fragrance again.
    Created in 1974 but the extrait in the beautiful Lalique bottle is still in production.

    One of those moments when the Lalique collector in me falls head over heels for a perfume bottle and discovers that there is also a wonderful extrait to enjoy.
    What more to wish for........

    Floral - Aldehyde
    Top notes - Aldehydes, Bergamot, Peach, Mandarin
    Heart notes - Rose, Carnation, Geranium, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Cyclamen, Honeysuckle
    Base notes - Sandalwood, Vetiver, Musk, Amber

    Crystal bottle by Marc Lalique

    FiFi Awards
    in 1975 for
    Women's Fragrance of the Year - Luxe
    Bottle Design: Women's Best Packaging of the Year - Prestige

    I'm wearing Jicky today. Then, when it's almost faded away, and I'm getting ready to go out this evening, I'll change to Shalimar.

    For some reason, I was really conscious of the civet today, especially at the start - I think my experiment with Mouchoir do Monsieur highlighted that. I'm wearing the EDP, but I have a 1 ml sample of the parfum, so I think I'll try that again. I suspect I prefer the parfum.

    Up way too early this morning after a fabulous dinner with ScentBro - SMM.

    Turns out we're even more siblings than we think!!!!

    After digging through the bag of goodies he brought - settled on

    Frederic Malle - French Lover / Bois D'Orage

    Hint of orange rind and black pepper on the immediate top, then settles into a resinous incense, still with the hint of orange oil. Just enough to round it out a tad.

    Could easily see the SO wearing this one (if I wanted to separate him from his Farenheit).

    ScentBro! It was a blast breaking bread with you!

    I'm wearing Ta'if by Ormonde Jayne. Notes include: Pink pepper, saffron and dates; rose oil, freesia, orange flower absolute and jasmine; broom and amber.

    It is slightly darker than I wanted for today, but on the other hand it is distinctive enough. I thought I'd over-applied at first, but three hours after application I can hardly smell it. If I concetrate hard I can smell the florals.

    Today it is still cold ( to me) 29 degrees F or almost 0 C (forgot about that yesterday Riannon) so I am wearing Cuir Mauresque.

    Taking my British friend shopping ( she HATES to shop and says I have 2 hours to produce a wardrobe). It will be interesting she is a riot!

    Chaya so happy to hear you are doing better Many hugs to you

    Wearing Philosykos and SL Daim Blond to test. The Daim Blond is nice and if I didnt have Dzing I might buy it, it gives a sort of sweetness to a tamed leather and Dzing is sweet but not tamed so I'd stick with Dzing. The name is nicer to say too.

    Philosykos smells like wet greenery, and it does make me remember Marrakech when I was sitting in a spa eating figs, it just misses a touch of rose to make it complete so I might try experimenting layer it with different roses to see if I can make the perfect marrakech scent that captures the hammam.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Forever Amber!! (What a great name for a book!!

    Nah.

    It'd never sell.)

    Went to bed yesters with my little mini of Ambre de Cabochard (still with me this ayem!!) and it got me in the mood (chilly again today ... won't even make it to 50F) ... and I headed right for the sample of Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé that Quarry sent me.

    Funny...this totally removed my socks Sunday night but doesn't seem the same this chilly ayem. Getting lotsa tobacco and a neutral sort of amber but not the sensuous honeyed warmth of the other evening...

    Hmnnn.

    Still reminiscing in my mind over the awesome dinner last night with ScentSis sakecat22. We had tapas and we talked and talked. I also got some inspirtation for another visit to Candy Town but I won't be going alone this time. Always wonderful when I meet fellow Basenoters how much more we have to talk about than just perfume. I'm getting all verklempt, talk amongst yourselves.
    Next to last day and I'm needing some power so I'm in:

    Tom Ford for Men

    This is a modern oriental with lots of power and sillage. There is nothing surprising about it but it is well-constructed and sometimes that's all you need.
    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    Was wearing Bulgari BLACK this morning. It had faded by lunchtime, so I'm testing TABAC BLOND by Caron from a sample. First impressions: strong smoky incense, which I love. I don't get any leather yet.

    Oh yes, my dear Tao.....it is a book by Kathleen Winsor and.....you could say: a bestseller Even now it is still sold on Amazon.
    They even translated it into Dutch and my mother almost got an attack when I brought it home from the library.

    I think that meant that she had been reading it as well but thought it unsuitable for her daughter

    Taolady, I loved Ambre Narguile for quite a while and couldn't understand how others said it smelled too much like apple pie. Then, one day, it finally became pie to me. So, while I still love to sniff it from my sampler tray, I haven't worn it and swapped away most of what I owned. So many frags smell different in the daylight than at night, too, don't they?

    Tang, love the scarved smiley. No measurable snow here, Ubu, and we've managed to not use the main furnace or the bathroom one yet. The pot-bellied woodstove and fans have kept the castle warm thus far.

    Wearing E by Sophia Grosjman this a.m. (I may have sprayed too much ). Gotta write a review within this thread. If anyone wants a sample, just say "hey."
