    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

    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!

    SL Santal Blanc. (Yesterday's sun and warmth has left us for now.)

    The last few times I wore this I paired it with a bit of Samsara parfum, which I enjoyed. I've been hesitant to wear Santal Blanc alone of late, but it's working today. Also it is less strong than I remember. I could have sprayed a bit more.

    Waiting on the arrival of Dianthus! Will wear that the very second it arrives. I tried it once and have been craving it for months and months (but always spent the money a bit too impulsively)

    I do love Bal a Versailles, but don't get the seduction "note" myself. Others do. Last time I wore it out book shopping a man came up to me and demanded to know what it was, he LOVED it! Best ever scenr in his loud opinion, and this was a man much younger that me who was probably going to sprint to the store for some. Because it sure wasn't me he was interested in...LOL. Bal and LTBL tend to elicit the wildest responses and they have little in common.

    Wow! It's smelling like a garden in here! Zibeline, congrats on your DIANTHUS. I love that one.

    It's rainy here in Northern CA. We're going to Sonoma county for a couple of days, but the rain won't spoil our plans to enjoy the wine, food, and shopping. I'm especially looking forward to my visit to Hampton Court in Santa Rosa. I've never been, but I've certainly drooled over their fragrant online offerings.

    I think I'll sample Neil Morris STORM today, but off to the (inside) shower first!

    Update: It is evening now, and I just want to report that STORM is stunning. I have done the BN salute more times today than I can count!

    I'm actually wearing my new B&BW Butterfly Flower but I wanted to mention the new lemon fragrance at B&BW which I tried on yesterday.

    It's an EdP-- 100ml in a glass spray bottle, $34.50. Excerpted from the B&BW website:

    C.O. Bigelow®
    Lemon Eau de Parfum


    This freshly scented Eau de Parfum is inspired by our most-loved, favorite original formulary, Lemon Body Cream. The pure, sparkling Lemon fragrance blends effervescent citrus notes with green lemon leaves and sensual, creamy undertones of warm white musk....
    Blends effervescent citrus notes with green lemon leaves and sensual, creamy undertones of warm white musk.


    When I first sprayed it on it reminded me of Love's Fresh Lemon-- very nice! Per my New Year's Resolution, however, I decided to wear it longer before buying.

    I found the fragrance turned sweeter, more of a candied lemon. The drydown didn't work for me; that reminded me of Jean Naté or the old Avon fragrance from the 1970s called Lemon Velvet. I suppose that is the musk. Alas, musk and I don't agree. But if you like lemon and musk, this new fragrance is worth a try.

    Tested Divin'enfant and so far I liked but I want to test it a bit more, it reminded me of angel rather strongly for a bit and then changed, not a linear fragrance at all
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    This morning I woke up with a craving for Eau des Merveilles. It's been a while since I wore it, and it's been so nice getting wafts of this orangy, salty, slightly balsamy scent all day long. I've already done the Basenotes salute about 15 times today! Ahhhhhh. Don't you just love a good scent day!

    In a frazzled distracted state today (not at all bad) ... I thought Asha's Terre d' Iris from yesterday would help me focus.

    But then I saw Coconut's Carnal Flower... god I love that stuff... and it has been a while considering the size of my selection.

    I'm way past smelling good... this stuff is divine....

    I've had another whirlwind day (handed over all my "old job role" stuff at our London office; tomorrow I get to hear full details of my new job... though I already have a rough idea... and, well, I keep pinching myself...).

    Then I met up with Grant's wife, Dani - who is adorable - and we went through the agenda for the August perfume tour. It's going to be lovely!

    I made a small detour to Liberty's in-between and left with the new, smaller bottle size of MH Citron Citron. That's been my SotD, though in the morning just from a sample.

    Nukapai, what a great day! I'm very excited for you and can't wait for you to be in your new job. Are we allowed to all live our dreams of perfume-world-dominance through you?

    Dora - my great sympathies to you. I am thinking of you, and of all those who've suffered through the earthquake in Italy.

    Today I am in Miller Harris, like Nukapai. I am learning to embrace oakmoss (much to my surprise as I'd always believed I'd never be able to embrace it) in Feuilles de Tabac. I like it very very much.

    Oooh I love Feuilles de Tabac (particularly on my husband ).

    And thanks for your enthusiasm about my new job - I am still like this and don't quite believe it. But I'll feel more at ease (though probably still quite disbelieving) after I've had a proper chat with my new boss tomorrow.... !

    I learn so much here! Must now seek out yet another MH: Fleur de Tabac. Today I'm sampling Parfum d'Empire's Osmanthe Interdit. The osmanthus is lovely and feminine, as usual, but I'm not sure what the 'interdit' part is about....it makes it sound darker, or more dangerous than it actually is. It is certainly nicer than SL's new Nuit de Cellophane which is terribly thin and well, cellophanic (if I may!).

    (((Dora))) you are in my thoughts and my prayers.

    A truly heartfelt wish for healing to all who are suffering in Italia, my heart bleeds for you.

    Nukapai- Huge congrats to you on the new and fabulous job.

    I wish all who are celebrating a wonderful Passover.

    Blessings to you mein vilde Chaya for undertaking your Seder, I am just roasting a chicken and that is enough work. Kudos to you.

    Today I am the sampler from hell; I went over board on samples I received (thanks to Dimples and Quixotic)

    I put on some Cabochard (older version) which I adore in the wee hours of the morning. I then put on some Madame X when I let the dog out at around 7am, super yummy. Next I put on a little Bois des Iles extrait before going out, so much richer than the edt. Next I put on some ELDO Rossy de Palma, wonderful and different. Finally I put on a little dab of Encens et Bubblegum, it smells just like my favorite lipsticks ever, which were my Rochas, sadly now long discontinued.

    For my sotE I will be putting on some No 19 extrait (hugs to dimples)

    Sorry SMM, I just probably made the stats go buggy.

    Love and hugs to all, take care and stay cozy this evening.
