“The tincture is obtained by infusing the powdered raw material into pure organic
non denaturated alcohol 96°. Castoreum is the name that perfumers give to the gland
of the mature male beaver that produces an aromatic substance that the animal sprays on the
plants to mark his territory and seduce the females into accepting him as a partner….The
scent of Castoreum is wild and leathery, very much animalistic, it is pure pheromone.
With contact on the skin it softens considerably and leaves a very persistent
and delicate leathery aroma.” – AbdesSalaam Attar
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

I used to be afraid to wear this titan of all women's scent. Not anymore. I love it. A timeless classic indeed. And as unisex as they come.
Scorching weather predicted for Melbourne this week, soft is the word so for my SOTD:

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
I can see why this has so many fans here. Absolutely devastating, in a good way ofcourse

Vetiver The Great!!!
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..."
