    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

    Anvers 2
    (2007)

    Top Notes: Bergamot, Lime, Lemon, Black Pepper, Wild Basil, Rhubarb, Cypress
    Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, Lily, Mimosa, Cedarwood, Sandalwood Vetiver
    Base Notes: Tonka, Vanilla, Musk, Amber, Olibanum, Oakmoss

    This is a captivating scent. It grows on you slowly, but it blossoms beautifully. There's a lot going on in this scent. The pyramid is crammed with different notes, but somehow, it's all making beautiful harmony. Apart from the hesperidic notes in the top, the rhubarb and cypress (also in the headnote) pick up the cedar, sandalwood, and vetiver in the heart. The floral accord lends a touch of sweetness without overwhelming the greener, spicier and darker notes. Some oakmoss in the base gives this a chypre quality, anchored by the florals and bergamot; and yet this is balanced by oriental notes in the base. It's not cheap, but in my estimation, it's much better than some that are even more expensive!
    Yr good bud,

    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..."

    Well, you can have the bottle of M7 delivered to me by mistake (instead of M7 Fresh, which I had ordered)! Just kidding - the bottle of M7 is going back, and the right bottle of M7 Fresh is on it's way.

    For SOTD, it will still be M7 Fresh, thanks to a fellow basenoter who provided me with a sample. I sprayed a bit on my forearm yesterday afternoon and all I can say is WOW!

    For the first non-ice filled morning this week I am wearing another new one:

    Jil Sander Scent 79 Man

    I tried this before the holidays and really liked it when I wrist tested it and the SA gave me a sample to try. Giving it a full wear I'm still liking it but I don't think I'm going to love it. The start is sage and incense which comes in a little depper than a typical top but still it gives way to the best part of this scent which is the floral heart. The heart is a mix of jasmine and violet where the sweet of the jasmine and the tart of the violet intertwine really nicely. The only drawback here is the heart of this is fleeting and fast on me lasting for only a short while. The base is leather and vetiver with some sandalwood and is a nice grounding after the heart. This is one which definitely wears close to my skin and looks like it will have longevity issues, as well. This is a well-made scent and it is interesting and I feel like I should like it more, because of all of that, but I don't.

    Sharing the house with ttcarlo, having decided that if this cold is going to be so damn persistent, I am going to take horrid adantage of it: I'm wearing Serge Lutens Borneo 1834... to work. I figure a few well placed comments about trying to combat this nasty illness with everything from cocoa to Vick's Vapo-Rub will get me complete immunity from anyone who doesn't appreciate my fragrance choice today.
    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
