    EAU DES ILES

    Jean François-Laporte, Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    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..."

    Relative in scent with Roberto in MPG Soie Rouge -- nice carnation fragrance. I went through my de***nt in the course of a couple of month about a year ago and decided for myself "Nah, nice but not FBW", have been missing it ever since until two weeks ago when a package from a BN friend arrived. It is an intermediately strong carnation, on the scale between L'Artisan and Caron, even similar to Roger & Gallet Blue Carnation but not a soliflore with its ambery musky base.

    Praying about the people in Italy. Hugs to Dora.

    Have a nice hump day.

    A rainy day, but I don't care. I'll be picking up the key to my new apartment this Friday (so fast!) and then it'll be painting, decorating, organizing... undoubtedly exhausting but I'm so looking forward to it!

    Thank you everyone for the sweet birthday wishes yesterday, it made my day! I double celebrated with a nice dinner with friends - perfect end to the day.

    I'm in L'Occitane Ambre today, which is about the only thing I can smell. I might be fumigating everyone around me, but hey - I say I'm allowed.

    I hope everyone in Italy is safe and sound, and that these were the last of the aftershocks.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Perhaps we can have a day of less April Showers and a little more sun.
    Wearing an old friend this morning:

    Caron L'Anarchiste

    It was early in my exploration of scents that I tried the Caron "masculine holy trinity" of pour Un Homme, Le 3me Homme, and Yatagan. They were all excellent scents on me. It took a little while longer for me to try L'Anarchiste. Richard Fraysse created L'Anarchiste in 2000 and it is encased in a striking copper bottle designed by Serge Mansau. This is one of those cases where everyone involved artistically on this should be pleased. The top notes are orange in the form of mandarin which quickly are joined by the clean lines of cedar. As this prgresses into the heart the orange becomes lighter and sandalwood joins the cedar to add a creaminess to the wood and to soften some of the edges that cedar brings to this scent. The woods stick around as a plush musk takes over and then the edge returns in the form of vetiver to round out the base. L'Anarchiste fits easily into the trio of Caron men's scents that came before. L'anarchiste falls closer to Yatagan than to either Le 3me Homme or pour Un Homme but really has its own unique place on the Caron spectrum. Looks like the "holy trinity" just gained a fourth.

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.

    Oooooh Coconut, I love your SOTD!

    I found a bottle of Tom Ford Black Orchid Voile de Fleur at TJMaxx yesterday, so I snagged it - for a mere $29.99! Proudly spritzed it on this morning, and it's PERFECT...very wearable. The edp version sort of 'wears me', but as baby bear says, "this one is jjjjjuuusssssttttt rrrrriiiiiiiggghhhhttttt"!

    Rushing... (again): Bwah-ha-ha des Eels for me today.
    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

    Looks like weather and clients permit me to do some outside work today -- digging, staining, who-knows-whatting. Need something to stand up to the wind and outdoors ... say, J-L Scherrer?

    Feeling the love in Shalimar parfum (older bottle, but not vintage). I have EDT, EDP and parfum. To my nose, the parfum has more vanilla, EDP has more incense and EDT has more lemon.

    Love that bottle Riannon!

    Today - Tocca Brigette.

    Not getting any of the spices or gourmandy goodness that other people rave about. Just a synthetic fruity floral. Keep waiting (and I am 4 hours in at this writing).

    Not a scrubber. Not racing to wear this again.

    L'Air de Rien--an accidental choice. I was comparing it to Rien by ELO, which someone (to my surprise) said was similar. I don't think they are--not much at least. Perhaps another case of the word leading the nose. Of course in the name of science (or obsession), I had to compare.

    It is interesting, b/c I remembered Rien as very soft and smooth. Next to l'Air de Rien, though, it is sharper, and much more leathery, even smoky, than I remembered.


    Like Bal � Versailles, L'Air de Rien always makes me think of a post-seduction scenario--rumpled sheets, a nice glow... gentle, warm, wet and a little dirty (in a good way), very soothing, but also very, very sexy.

    In comparison Rien comes across as a subtle, somewhat dry and cool leather.

    Cheers, everyone!

    I promised my mom I'd wear a floral, so I will wear a floral. It's a nice excuse to wear AG Un Matin d'Orage. I'm already wishing I'd bought a bigger bottle.

    That bottle is gorgeous RIANNON! You always have pics of the most stunning perfume bttls ever.

    Spending the day at home alone today, so have "poured" on the SUBLIME. Should take me about a week to wear it off.
