    The third day in a row in L'Artisan, only today it is Mimosa pour Moi -- lively and delicate mimosa fragrance reminding me of tiny yellow furballs so popular in Southern Europe in March (not the fuzzy long threads white and pink in color from a tree known as "mimosa" somewhere, say, in Arkansas).

    It was hot these past two days here in the Land of Sioux -- up to 94F -- however, with relatively low humidity and cooling winds it was tolerable. We are expecting to have clouds and possibly storms today -- we need them, I planted parsley and sweet basil. Oh yeah, and tonight I am going to make a rhubarb pie from the stalks growing right here in the back yard, will report.

    Enjoy your day, all!

    Giving a first wearing to Parfums MDCI Un Cœur en Mai

    A green, juicy take on a floral scent. The delicate opening slowly reaches a more spicy balance between flowers, fruits and wood. Full-bodied but not at all too complex.

    Kbe: "thunderboomers" what a great word!!! Please can I adopt it?

    Dimi: tell me true - quite how fab-you-lerse does the Armani smell? Is it gorgeous or just OK? Do I need to start searching out a bottle? You can tell me, it's OK. I won't actually knock any little old ladies down as I rush to the shop to smell it.

    Me? well I'm in CK Secret Obsession. That's because I have a little theory about it, which I'd like to share with you for group pondering. I think Secret Obsession is a Feminite du Bois knock-off. I was sniffing and sniffing the atomiser the other night (what, you mean you don't sit there and sniff you bottles while watching TV?), trying to work out what it reminded me of. Then it hit me: red fruit and wood, that's FdB. Aha!

    So I'm wearing it today to test my theory and waddya know? First few minutes it's a dead ringer for FdB, I swear. But I am not overkeen on FdB anymore - I find it too big, too radiant and too loud - I actually prefer Bourdon's reworking in Dolce Vita and think it works better as a baseline. Here though, it's been used as a melody, with some woody musks as a base and some of that strange salty note shared by Eau des Merveilles, Lolita Lempicka and Gres Cabaret, to cut the sweetness. I find it immensely wearable. Just when I am starting to tire of the big fruit and wood opening, the salt cuts in and saves it, plus it wears close to the skin and doesn't do that massive radiant thing I struggle with with FdB. Plus it's a damn sight cheaper. A good result all round as far as I'm concerned.

    ROBERTO, I have bottle envy.

    After a great evening in Fenway last night it is back to work this morning.
    Looking forward to meeting a BNer after work.

    Patou Ma Liberte

    I grew up in South Florida and used to regularly ride my bike down to South Beach as a young child in the 70's. During that time the Art Deco buildings were crumbling and you could see the remaining glory in what was, as it was all falling apart. Why am I starting a perfume review with a reminiscence on Art Deco? Jean Patou as a House reminds me of that decaying neglected Art Deco South Beach of my youth. Patou has made so many amazing scents beyond Joy you just want someone to pick up this House and turn it into the perfume version of South Beach today and make it relevant again. The last good new release from Patou was 1987's Ma Liberte designed by Jean Kerleo. Ma Liberte is an example of what I think is an excellent unisex scent. At the top there is a livley heliotrope which is cut by citrus. This leads to a heart that starts with lavender and is joined by jasmine and light spices. There are hints of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon all throughout this stage. The base is a pitch perfect balance of earthy patchouli, creamy sandalwood and clean cedar. Ma Liberte shows that Patou given over to the right hands could be as relevant and as adored as any House out there. South Beach turned around on the twin influences of fashion photographers shooting haute couture against the decaying deco and Miami Vice. I don't know what it will take to save Patou but Ma Liberte makes me wish very hard for it to happen.

    Have a Thoughtful Thursday everyone.

    SotD is Elixir des Merveilles by Hermes. My husband's favorite, he can't get enough of that scent on me. Wore Parfum Sacre to bed, because it makes me feel wrapped up and cozy. That one is my bedtime scent. Just ordered two more Ava Luxe frags: Madame X and Heart of Glass. I can't wait until they get here! My tiny collection is slowly growing!

    Week's almost over, Yeeehaw!

    Last nights SOTE was 1000. I do like the drydown much, but kind of a wonky topnote. Very old-school stuff.

    SOTD: Jil Sanders Scent 79. Wow, what a great experience! Whodathunk that fruit and galbanum could work so well together! Was expecting sweeter fruit, and was glad it wasn't.
    This is a keeper, for sure.

    I do like the fruit in Azzaro Couture. Not too sweet or cloying , and that slight mango is fantastic. Another new fav.

    Still trying to devise a rotation system that works for me. Don't like to be dogmatic about wearing perfume, but when I do it randomly, some get neglected. I want all my scents to feel my love and attention equally! Wow, that sounds strange.....

    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.

    Memoire Liquide - Hommage

    I see this house is getting a bit more love on the blogs of late. I can see why. All of the perfumes I've tried smell nice and are long-wearing.

    Hommage is supposed to be a frankincense / myrrh / amber / musk / sandalwood scent.

    My nose - citrus / herbs / patchouli / healthy lick of vanilla.

    Either my nose is super-wonky, my scent memory is completely off or this really smells nothing like the listed notes.

    Still smells nice - though the patchouli / amber base in this one goes a tad sour on my skin after an hour.

    My thoughts on the rest of the Memoire Liquide line (at least the ones I've tried) are here.

    I am trying out the new L'Occitane scent, Rose Nuit de Mai. As far as I am concerned, L'Occitane has produced two decent scents (the original vanilla and the discontinued neroli) and then a series of clunkers, one after another. I'm happy to report that Rose Nuit de Mai breaks this losing streak. RNdM is a tentative fruit/rose/wood combo that has some similarity to Rosine Poussiere de Rose. It's mellow and easy to wear, with each note smoothed over to eliminate roughness. This is a huge improvement over the rest of their scents. I'd not say they were going in a niche direction; it is simply the similarity to Poussiere that makes it seem a bit novel for the company.

    Lessa, in agreement with you here! Drool... rhubarb pie... my grandma made many strawberry rhubarb pies with fruit from her yard in the midwest, too. I am drooling for real!
    And yes, we all do smell absolutely fabulous.

    Generally, I'm not a fan of rose-predominant fragrances, and therefore haven't tried all that many. I loved the Sonoma Scent Studio rose that Haunani (hi!) sent me to try - I think it's Vintage Rose - for it's wine-y qualities. I love this one even more because while it has the dark winey-ness, it also has a beautiful clarity. I can't describe it, I've never been good at this, but... it's dark and moody, yet crystal-like (at least in the first half-hour, where it is now). Gorgeous.

    Good day all,
    Not myself today, asthma, headache, lethargic. all due to the big jump in temps here; one day 11C one day 17C and today 'joy of joys' 31C.

    So I am just trying to keep the breathing in a happy place, scent for that is Cardin;

    the original

    Love and hugs to all.

    EL Amber Ylang Ylang. I should try to remember that I prefer amber in the evening, even when the days are moderate.

    Everyone smells fabulous, especially you A la Nuiters! I should really, really get some of this, but thoughts like these keep nickel and diming away my tax refund. Hmph.

    My head is spinning! Got up at 5am and pootled down to the BSP annual symposium. Met Tony Curtis (the perfume and marketing supremo who runs my course) & he got his colleague to take a photo of us, as apparently I'm the first new student on this new-style course. Was chuffed.

    SotD was Breath of God, worn discreetly around the back of the knees and ankles so as not to disturb sniffing. That turned out to be an excellent decision. Spent the whole day sniffing. Learned a lot too. Have samples and goodies (now own two scent-strip clips. I think that means I'm "in". ).

    Having sampled a material with a distinct celery-note today, now have brain-worm in trying to figure out whether Dzongkha contains it. Beginning to wish I had access to GC machine (I do, but indirectly and not for frivolous brainworms).

    Finally, did you know that:
    - Women taking the contraceptive pill lose their ability to sniff out the partner with the best possible genetic match. (Contraceptive pill makes women prefer a body odour similar to their own, when in fact we are naturally more attracted to dissimilar body odour).

    P.S. Dearest Quarry, now I might end up wearing Mandragore tomorrow. We'll see!
