"The Sunshine bores the daylights outta me!"
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..."

So, so bad. An interesting but short-lived initial vanilla coke opening but the rest of the juice is just so boringly forgettable. My first regretted buy of the year.

I'm headed to the dentist this morning for my twice yearly cleaning and scolding for not flossing enough and felt the need for something big:
Burberry Brit for Men
If you step up to any men's fragrance counter you will be bombarded by scents that have in their description "fresh and clean". For the general public that is clearly what sells, but for me it sometimes carries the stigma of saying "Danger, Will Robinson!" I think I know what I want fresh and clean to be and most of these scents do not meet that standard. Enter Burberry Brit for Men which was designed in 2004 by Antoine Maisondieu. This is an example of what I want fresh and clean to be. The start is citrus, bergamot and ginger and it is here that my main quibble with the scent comes out. It just starts too loud. The top of this projects off the skin like an olfactory typhoon. But in what is almost a hallmark of Burberry scents it is the drydown that is special (see Burberry London for Men as Exhibit A of this phenomenon). Once the winds die down a creamy and beautiful nutmeg and cedar accord arises. I am coming to realize that when it comes to clean, cedar is the note I want present and here the combination with nutmeg makes it different but still crisp. The base is musk and tonka and the progression is really quite nice as the cedar pulls back to give the base some room to breathe. I own a few of the "fresh and clean" crew and this one of the best examples I have.
Have a Magnifico Monday everyone.

...cuz I can't wear it to work (my Boss hates it...can you say "allergies"??) and today is the only day I have off this week. (I work for a florist? This is Valentine's Day week?)
And because it is so damned beautiful.
