    Guerlain
    Cruel Gardénia
    (2008)
    Randa Hammami, Sylvaine Delacourte

    Top Notes: Damask Rose, Peach, Neroli
    Middle Notes: Violet, Ylang-Ylang, Gardenia
    Base Notes: Tonka Bean, White Musk, Vanilla, Sandalwood

    I recently decided to get this new creation from the Arts et Matière series. I have to say that I find it captivating. The top notes are classic: an aldehydic peach with orange blossom and rose. The scent then flows into a heart of white flowers with musk and a hint of violet. It finishes with a vanillic-coumarin and sandalwood flourish. It is gentle and not at all loud, but it has a definite sillage. The character of this is reassuring and nurturing, indulging the senses in a wonderfully innocent, yet opulent gesture. I think in certain circumstances it can be worn by a man, lightly and with a suitable insouciance. Probably not for work or a first date, to be sure; but for a quiet afternoon, a spiritual moment, an intimate walk with a knowing lover. Wear it and wink at the world; be shy, but win the universe's tacit compliance with a frank and indisputable suchness.

    The last of a Versace Man Eau Fraiche vial a kind Basenoter sent to me; nice, but not interesting enough to warrant a full bottle.
    Looking for samples, or *cheap* (partial or full) bottles of: Liz Claiborne's Curve and Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce.
    Also, anyone who knows where I can try/sample these in Australia (Sydney) please send me a PM! =]

    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..."

    It's cloudy and rainy today... a perfect day to go shopping. I'm wearing Hermes Vetiver Tonka from a generous sample from a bnoter (thanks WL!). This is so much better on my skin than I'd expected it to be. I may just have to get a Disney pass and become friendly with EPCOT this year.

    Happy Birthday to Fragrant Zebra and irish belated or not depending on how accurate the birthday reminder is.
    Today is a rainy, dreary day at Stately Somerville Manor. The Sunday paper has been digested, Wild Poodles are round pools of poodle on the floor and I am going to introduce myself to the DS & Durga samples, New England Pine, Cowboy Grass, Barbados, and Marblehead Reds; I have and dab a little on different parts of my body and see how they develop as I catch up on a few weeks of "Ugly Betty" on the DVR.
    Have a Sumptuous Sunday everyone.
