Thread: SotD - 25. Dec 08
Happy Christmas everyone!
I will celebrate the day with a sample of Penhaligons Elixir whixh was the one they tried to solace me with for not carrying LP no 9 anymore at all.
Was hoping to have Chanel's Sycomore, but we have had bad snow and UPS is running days late. So, don't know, perhaps Bois D'Orage from Malle. (french lover)
An extraordinary green leather chypre, Derby is still in production
albeit with very limited distribution.
Top notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Artemisia, Peppermint

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

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..."

" Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain."
