    I'm wearing Dior Homme, one spray to each shoulder. This is perfectly suffcient. How do the boys get on with 15 sprays covering every body part and crevice?

    Good morning/afternoon!



    Péché Cardinal (Cardinal Sin)

    Amandine Marie for Parfums MDCI

    They may have called it 'Péché' but for me it is very much 'Pêche' (peach). Lovely fresh topnote, you can almost taste the fruit.
    The heartnote however has a large dose of tuberose, and this comes from a woman who loves tuberose. You need a very light hand or you will be overwhelmed.
    Longevity and sillage are very, very good.

    On one of the blogs someone mentioned the smell of leather in this fragrance but I have not been able to trace that. To be honest, with all that fruit and tuberose, I have a hard time to smell the musk or wood

    I am not quite sure if this one is for me. Interesting fragrance, worth to be tested more but not a love at first whiff. Not necessarily a bad thing, some fragrances need some time to be loved and appreciated. Patience is all we need.


    Notes from MDCI site:
    Top notes: peach, blackberry, blackcurrant, davana, coconut
    Heart notes: lily, tuberose, plum
    Base notes: sandalwood, cedar, musk


    A good start of the week to you all.

    Hmm, Brotha!! I want to nuzzle your neck.....Jicky

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Thanks to LilyBelle I've discovered Profumo's smoldering take on Roses....Rose des Bois sort of Ombre Rose out of Rouse with a hint of aoud. Yumsters!

    (Can't believe I missed that whole Profumo http://www.profumo.it/perfume/home_english.htm thing going on at the beginning of the year! I'm always late for everyting - unless I'm way ahead....) Got a LOT of catching up to do.)

    Looks like the overcast has passed finally and we are in for a sunny week here in New England.
    I hope all of our mothers were spoiled appropriately yesterday.

    I am wearing a new House, to me, today courtesy of ComDiva:

    Esteban Colere D'Epices

    It is always a joy to discover a new House and in this first effort that I've tried from the Parisian niche House, Esteban its even better when the scent is good, too. Esteban's stated purpose is to marry Mediterranean and Japanese aesthetics in their perfumes. The 2007 release Colere D'Epices is translated as the "Wrath of Spices" and is part of the Collection Couleurs. This is another case of the name having little to do with what it smells like on my skin. The spice part is accurate but I feel anything but wrathful over this scent. Cardamom and ginger start things off and this is a beautifully subtle start. Cardamom adds a hint of lemon and in conjunction with the richness of the ginger makes the top spicy and breezy. The transition into the heart begins with the appearance of a clove note which then moves into a light floral dominated by heliotrope. It is here in the heart that the stated Japanese aesthetic is most prevalent. The floral nature is kept at arm's length and it never moves into a full frontal floral. The heliotrope is an equal partner with the clove. The base is also a finely balanced mix of amber and musk. The musk comes off as a sheer white musk mixed with a strong, not sweet, amber. To my nose Colere D'Epices definitely succeeds at making a scent which has Mediterranean influence but done in the way of a zen garden where as you focus on each individual component it is nice but taken as a whole it transcends its ingredients. I am now very curious to try more from Esteban.

    Have a Masterful Monday everyone.

    I almost wore Duc de Vervins this morning. I just don't know that it's unisex enough for work. Also I think one of the owners of the company wears it.

    Greetings, all!

    I'm going with a full-on spring theme, in Neil Morris Fragrances Flowers for Men: Lilac.

    Hurrah! Purple lilacs (as opposed to En Passant's white lilacs) on a leather base. I always picture an oversized, well-worn and well-cared-for leather briefcase overflowing with lilac boughs.

    Speaking of lilacs, guess what?!? My lilac bush that never bloomed (in the 5 years since I planted it, largely due to too much shade, I thought) has bloomed! The kids brought me a vase of lilac stems with my morning coffee yesterday, and I complemented their fragrance, asked where they came from, and was stunned to discover the source was our own lilac bush. Very nice way to start the week.

    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

    Hey Dimps! :wave: You smell great!

    Things have finally settled down here after my nephews wedding last weekend. Whew! I ended up with 9 extra people in the house, and my sister convinced me to go back to Kelowna with her for a day or two (turned into a week), so am really enjoying a little quiet time now.

    Happy Belated Birthday to anyone I may have missed.

    It's ORGANZA INDECENCE for me this morning. I'm becoming quite addicted to this scent. Love the spicy peppery opening.

    Have a good one everybody!
