    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, ......

    Rochas
    Lui
    (2003)
    Michel Almairac

    Top Notes: Calabrian Citron, Neroli
    Heart Notes: Buffalo Grass, Sycomore Wood, Cedar
    Base Notes: Patchouli, Amber, Vanilla

    Lui is a very comforting woody scent, with bits of fresh, green and floral. On me, it goes through a bit of a rough patch between the top and middle notes, but it recovers very quickly, and the rest of the ride is very pleasant. I think this can be a dress-up scent, but I wouldn't exclude it from casual attire days. Maybe not for torn jeans... I don't know what buffalo grass is, but it reminds me of something I first knew as sweet grass. I think it contributes that bit of sweetness I find in this fragrance.

    Besides, a little lavender never hurt anyone, mmm?

    I am wearing a sample given to me by the ever lovely chayaruchama:

    Histoire de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade

    There are some perfumes that are going to have a hard time living up to their name. Any scent named after the most publicized libertine of all time is going to have to be a combination of the sensual and the novel. In this case I think Histoire de Parfums did a pretty good job. The fragrance starts with a bergamot and light leather beginning. It is a quite lovely mix harkening to that which the Marquis is most known for. Continuing that theme the leather deepens into the heart but adds some heat in the form of spices cumin and cardamom. All of this is enhanced with an earthy patchouli. Here is the sensual heat that the name promises. It is as we move into the base that the novel makes its appearance with a candied fruit note that makes for a shift in tone. It doesn't last long before the patchouli ushers in a mix of wood and vanilla in the base with the leather note still present. This is a lush scent which in my opinion lives up to its name.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    Happy, happy birthday, Jillsy!!!!

    Speaking of birthdays, I am back with Dear Daughter from her Great 10th Birthday Extravaganza - which was an enormous success, even though the bus experience was a disaster in both directions. I am concentrating on the good parts, which FAR outweighed the incompetence of Greyhound/Peter Pan Buslines. Full report (minus the bus craziness) at the link above.

    Over the weekend, I kept Somerville Metro Man in mind (can't neglect the ScentSon, even while on adventures with the "real" kids ), and tested Isabela Capeto Perfume and Montale Amber and Spices.

    The Isabela Capeto was a big disappointment to me... All the notes and reviews sounded wonderful, but I found there was a heavy and unlisted cumin (?) note in there that just did NOT sit well with me. I kept hoping that the scent would pull a "Kingdom" -- dry down to something completely wild and gorgeous. Nope. Just shifted a bit, then left me flat. Ah, well. I bet it smells great on others.

    Isabela Capeto notes: Cedar, vetiver, sandalwood, osmanthus, Brazilian marshland lily, black plum, opoponax, black and pink pepper, cinnamon and cardamom.

    The Amber and Spices was much more my speed. Brand new so with no notes listed, I definitely get amber, vanilla and what I think of as the classic Montale rose-and-light-aoud base. On first sniff, a woody amber that unexpectedly will absolutely sing in warm weather.

    For today, I'm doing a little compare and contrast with Parfumerie Generale: Querrelle and L'Ombre Fauve. Love them both, although they are very, very different. The Querelle is sharp, dark green and spicy. Gorgeously unisex,and works better on my skin than Yatagan. I especially like the caraway element in there. L'Ombre Fauve is an easy sell for me.. Sweet woods, spice and incense on a classic patchouli base. Beautifully done, though not ground-breaking. If I didn't already have so many well done fragrances along these lines, it would definitely go on my wish list. Querelle, however, is now being added.

    Querelle notes: Citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitian vetiver, incense, oakmoss, ambergris.

    L'Ombre Fauve notes: Amber, musk, woods, incense, patchouli.
    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
