(La Via del Profumo)
“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:

I can see why this has so many fans here. Absolutely devastating, in a good way ofcourse

Guerlain Habit Rouge
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."

I am in a rosy mood today but also a weird mood therefore I think I'll wear:
Etat Libre D'Orange Rossy de Palma
Etat Libre d'Orange has made its mark on the clever names of its different scents as well as what is contained in the bottle. That's why it was surprising to see them putting out an actress inspired scent. On the other hand Rossy de Palma, star of Pedro Almodovar's Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown, isn't likely to be confused with Jennifer Lopez anytime soon. This is a rose-focused scent which is also unlikely to be confused with the rose water your grandmother used either. Perfumers Antoine Lie and Antoine Maisondieu combined to make a modern rose which also contains elements of the new. For me the difference comes right at first sniff as the rose is present but also a tart manadarin note which plays antagonist to the rose protagonist in the first act. The mandarin slowly fades and as the curtain goes up on the second act the co-star is honey and a sweet aura wraps the rose in what at first seems like a gentle middle when from stage left enters a hint of spice in the personages of cumin and cinnamon. As we move into act three the rose maintains its central role but now gracefully shares the olfactory stage with patchouli applied very lightly over musk and vanilla. The top and heart of this one are a joy on my skin as the rose holds my interest but the mix of citrus honey, and spice as the scent develops really add depth. The base is almost disappointingly normal but then one does need to ground the unusual in the familiar at some point. All involved need to take a bow as I stand and wrist pressed firmly to nose give the Basenotes Salute.
Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

Today I'm wearing the, or a, new formulation dismissed by Mr. Turin as "once-great, now a sad woody little thing." I love both versions that I own, and don't think of the new one as an inferior scent.
