    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..."

    Sa majesty la rose from serge lutens.

    Lovely rose scent but the first minute makes me sneeze, still smells good though.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Morning: Profumum Acqua di Sale
    Afternoon: L'Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu
    Evening: Annick Goutal Ambre Fétiche

    After doing a bit of testing, I can say pretty definitively that storing Acqua di Sale in plastic atomizers introduces an unwanted vinyl note to the fragrance. During the last few times that I've worn it, I've applied it directly from the glass bottle, and the vinyl note is not present.

    expecting a huge snowstorm out here in the tri state area.
    going to work in Mitsouko parfum (vintage) This stuff is AMAZING. Have not worn it for months. It will get me through the day. Hopefully I won't get snowed in at work!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Last night I tested the flip side of Kilian's Liaisons Dangereuses, Kilian Cruel Intentions, also from a sample. MUCH more my speed. Will be wearing this one again, and soon!

    Cruel Intentions notes: Bergamot calabria oil, orange blossom oil, violet accord, centifolia rose absolute, agarwood, Indian papyrus oil, gaiacwood oil, Haiti vetiver oil, sandalwood, styrax absolute, castoreum absolute, vanilla absolute, musk.

    This morning, however, with a winter storm warning in effect (they're calling for up to a foot of snow , but I still have to go into work), I wanted something more on the comfort scale, but still with a sexy streak. My choice? Am 1/3 scent twin with Astaroth (does this make us scent cousins today?) in Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche. Perfect!

    Ambre Fétiche notes include: Frankincense, labdanum, styrax, benzoin, iris, vanilla and leather.

    Have a fabulous Friday, all!

    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

    Also going into work in the face of a snow warning, good thing I walk.
    House Brother with Lian and tdem1961 in:

    Serge Lutens Chergui

    This one starts off sweet on me with honey and sugar at the top. In the heart tobacco takes the lead with hints of incense underneath. At the base a well-balanced leather slightly counterbalanced with some amber and musk ties it all up.

    Have a Fun-packed Friday everyone.

    EDIT: Just noticed it is Tavorna's 21st birthday. Happy Birthday and I hope you have an incredible day!!

    I'm in Kenzo Amour le Parfum and I am beeginning to suspect I don't like it as much as the regular Kenzo Amour. Oh dear. Still, it's not vile, so I'll carry on wearing it, I'm sure.

    I'm waiting to hear from Inespenes when the sun finally fails to rise for her up in the Arctic circle in Tromso. I always find that incredible.

    Happy Friday all, and big hugs because I'm feeling festive even though I haven't had any gluwein yet.

    Glad to hear from tdi once again!

    Woke up to a world covered in ice...when I took the doggies outside, the ice was so thick they were walking on top of the snow without breaking through once! It's crazy! The poor creatures were so freaked out they couldn't even pee! Schools are on a 2 hour delay, but I suspect they may actually cancel, we'll wait & see.

    To warm me up today, I'm spritzing the last drops of my sample (from the lovely Tang )
    AOMASSAI 10 by Parfumerie Generale. This one is the absolute best gourmands I've ever experienced!

    Echoing ubu, I woke up to a world covered in a blanket of snow, and it'll be piling on more all day long. School is canceled, driving to work is out of the question, the city's power went out temporarily while I was at the grocery store last night (scary!), and the snowblower doesn't work (feeling sorry for me yet, Astaroth? )

    Cozy, comforting Ambre Narguilé for today.
