Calèche Fleurs de Méditerranée
Notes: Moroccan Mimosa, Turkish Rose, Egyptian Jasmine, Beeswax Absolute, Heliotrope
A limited edition, this is a beautiful composition based on mimosa, rose, and jasmine with beeswax absolute and heliotrope. The mimosa's floral note is slightly green, lending a bit of freshness to this rather rich fragrance; the beeswax gives depth and a gently animalic touch, while the heliotrope contributes the gourmand redolence of almonds and cherry pie. It is definitely an opus of elegance and style, deep and reassuring. Ellena's genius for making a great deal of a minimal set of ingredients is amply evident here.

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Chanel's Sycomore ... Layered 2/3 .... to 1/3 SCP's Vanille-Mocha.
It works !... well it does to my nose anyway ! ... It transforms up the Sycomore nicely, for a change. The vetiver-vanilla-coffee/choc is a good combination, I think !.

Mitsouko by Guerlain
I love the vintage edc of Mitsouko very much and so I was very curious to try the modern edt. It's still as lovely as ever, the loveliest peace note in a perfume. And one of the greatest perfume ever made. Strangely, its the edc which has more potency over the modern frag. Now, the parfum awaits me.

Creed Silver Mountain Water
I am anticipating that this fragrance, although somewhat cliché to some, might make an excellent all around play in my wardrobe. It is very refreshing, exudes a certain sense of Creed refinement, and would work quite well in the hot Houston summers or for that matter, play out very well in more formal occasions.
I certainly hope that this fragrance demonstrates the longevity that other Creeds sometimes do not.
Everyone have a Great Sunday!

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
