Byzance by Rochas for Women
Patricia de Nicolaï
NICOLAI POUR HOMME
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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
I think I'll keep Tigger for a while.
In a hippy mood with Patchouli Patch
Olivier Durbano Black Tourmaline
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Introspective and soothing......
The quiet and calming beauty of Encens et Lavande again.
The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp
Congrats on your 10'000 tigs!
Wore it yesterday evening and it's so lovely I am wearing it again as SotD today
(moonviewing - autumn)
Nope, the Annayaké madness isn't over yet
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Still on a tough broad streak wearing Jicky today. It feels a little bit more crisp and greener than Bandit which makes it more uplifting and Bandit is a bit darker and a lot of leather mixed in.
I think all these strong girls help in a little way to give me a boost in the morning to get up and go out.
But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Top Notes: Petitgrain, Bergamot, Sage, Lavender, Myrtle
Middle Notes: Nutmeg, Pimento, Oakmoss, Tobacco, Jasmine, Leather
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Patchouli, Cedar, Incense

Belated Happy Birthday Leesee hope it was an awesome day and you have some new additions to your scent palette.
ScentSis glad to hear you're back and had a great time. I have indeed vanquished the evil viral invaders and sent them packing.
ScentMother needs to send her viral invaders on an extended vacation so she can enjoy her weekend in NYC with her youngest.
Here like on most of the East Coast it feels like we're in the deep freeze with a single digit temp staring at me from our porch thermometer.
Today I am in a sample most generously given to me by the very lovely Chaya:
Bois 1920 Real Patchouly
Patchouli is one of those notes that is difficult to work with, I think. It is easy to use it and come off smelling like every head shop in existence. It is a more difficult trick to get past that association and through a combination of other notes bring out a different facet to patchouli. In Real Patchouly, Enzo Galardi does this in a very slow moving and delightful way. This is a symphony of patchouli in three movements. From the top the head shop smell of patchouli is present along with a tart lemon which keeps it familiar and maybe even commonplace or boring. This is a patchouli you've seen before, many times. Then the second movement begins and while the patchouli is still the dominant figure vanilla matches it and now accentuates the sweeter aspects of patchouli; muting but not obliterating the more herbal essence one usually associates with patchouli. After an extended second movement we move into the final movement and this comes on very slowly as you notice the herbal character of the patchouli beginning to make a return but now it has brough a partner with it, amber. The effect of the amber is to bring those herbal notes to the foreground while muting the sweeter aspects thus flipping the experience of the whole from an hour or so ago. Real Patchouly is a very slowly evolving scent as it took almost two hours for all of this to happen. This is no fast-food scent here. This scent shows what a perfumer can do with one predominant note that lasts throughout but by pairing it with the right dance partners create lovely olfactory synergies that allow you to really appreciate the central note.
Have a Terrific Thursday everyone.

Wearing NR for her EdT on this sunny, cold day. This scent is so clean smelling to me, probably the most clean smellling scent I own, White Linen included...

Wow! I missed out on posting yesterday and changing my avatar. I had to work and I woke up late so time was of the essence.
Happy 10,000th post Tigs!
Hugs and positive vibes to Wordbird ( I just had my Chakras aligned so I'm sharing my good vibes with you!)
Happy belated Bday to Leesee !
Excited to see a post by you Musse!
Today a meeting for work and lunch with friends after......wearing Chanel Coromandel.
Hello all you gorgeous-smelling ones, and a special welcome to Zingss!
Big hugs to all who need 'em. I promise not to breathe on you when I hug you.
Happy belated birthday, Leesee! Hope it was a wonderful day, and that you continue celebrating all year.
The cold from hell is making a slow retreat, though is stubbornly hanging in there just enough to require me to continue carrying my own large box of tissues to every meeting I attend (and it's not easy to find a tissue box that goes with the various work outfits, let me tell you). I do make a fetching picture, though, in my business suit, great boots, and... box o' tissues. Very chic.
Deep freeze has come to New England, and I have decided to be contrarian again and smell like summer vacation in Montale Sandflowers.
Sandflowers notes: Sea notes, juniper berries, sandalwood and oakmoss.
I really do smell like I'm on a beach where there are wonderful beach roses and other hardy blooms lining the high end of the dunes.
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
