    Cool morning, perfect for a Vetiver

    Happy in delicious Le Labo Vetiver 46

    Update: I sprayed a tiny bit of Djedi extrait (Vetiver, oakmoss, amber, leather) next to Le Labo's Vetiver.
    Breathtakingly beautiful.....Earth mother.....

    Happy Birthday *and* retirement to Fred, Mr. Haunani

    Have a great Tuesday (even though it feels like Monday to some of us in Europe)

    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..."

    Yep, feels like a Monday to me, too.
    Hard for Big to go back to work today after 10 days off, bless him.
    Must make something nice for tea. (What, I wonder? Hmm. Cookbooks...)

    Beautiful sunny day here and having just discussed the filth-o-rama potential of various beloved fragrances over on the hilarious 'trailer park hooker' thread, I am tempted by L'Air de Rien, Bulgari Black and Bal a Versailles, just for peversity's sake. But Ava Luxe's No 23 is sitting there, calling my name. Oh, what shall it be????

    Well, in fact it's Molinard de Molinard. I was doing some decanting as I am posting two parcels today and wanted to slip a few other things in, you know, as you do. And Molinard de Molinard is such a little cracker that I often send a dab to friends. Voila! Perfect for a sunny day.

    FYI, my 76 years-old Mam came in while I was squirting things into vials and sniffed appreciatively. "Mmm, smells like a perfume shop in here! Can I have a squirt of that one?" Narcisse Noir! "Are you sure, Mum? it's a bit of a powerful one" And then I remembered: this is the lady for whom I bought Fleurs de Rocaille, thinking it would be perfect to wear to church, and while she liked it, and does wear it to church, she swiped the bottle of Shalimar neither I nor my best friend is woman enough to be able to wear with confidence.

    So I'm in Molinard de Molinard and Mum is in Narcisse Noir. Small had a spritz of Fragonard's Miranda because 'it smells like coconut soap', which is her current favourite. It goes perfectly with the lilac and puce fairy outfit her Nana has helped her to put on.
    Today's trip to the supermarket is going to be a riot, I can tell.
    Have a lovely day, all.

    Already sprayed on Le Dix before reading these posts and wish I hadn't because it just doesn't feel 'right' today. Ineespenes has the right idea with Chergui! It's cold and raining and I've got a runny nose (I know, I'm hot) and that Lutens desert wind would definitely dry everything up :-)

    The Word Family out for groceries in their Tuesday finest of Molinard de Molinard, Narcisse Noir and Miranda. I want to be following that crew around the market.

    The calendar says its still spring and the weather says its still spring but darn it I want some heat!! I know be careful what you wish for.

    Wearing a new acquisition via scentemental:

    Helmut Lang Eau de Parfum/Helmut Lang Woman

    In 2000 Helmut Lang had Maurice Roucel create two scents for each gender Helmut Lang Man and Woman. In reality they were two different strengths of the same scent with Man being the eau de cologne version and Woman being the eau de parfum version. It is curious that a brand like Helmut Lang which was known for its androgynous clothing designs actually made an effort to gender classify their signature scent. It is equally curious why he chose M. Roucel to design these scents as his scents have a lushness to them that also seems to be the antithesis of the Helmut Lang design aesthetic. Especially since these two scents are really only different in their emphasis on certain notes I find that I prefer the Eau de Parfum version as it has a strength to it that appeals to my aesthetic. The top starts out with a soft entry on a wave of florals dominated by jasmine and lily. This is a fleeting short-lasting top as the real business of this scent takes hold as musk and rose hold sway in the heart. This combination reminds me very much of Serge Lutens Muscs Kublai Khan as it contains many of that scents deeper muskiness without the intensity present there. The base of this is a creamy mixture of vanilla and woods including sandalwood mostly but joined by some cedar to add some clearly defined lines to the woodiness. Helmut Lang EDP is mostly about musk, on me, and it comes off light and appropriate for daily wear. Where I would never think about wearing Muscs Kublai Khan into the office I happily wear this one. Does that make Helmut Lang EDP, Muscs Kublai Khan Light?

    Have a Tender Tuesday everyone.

    So great to see everybody this morning! ♥

    I'm wearing Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess, from a sample that I received last year (was it?) with an EL order. I didn't care much one way or the other for it then, but I'm liking it very much this morning. The sweetness of the coconut is cut by the citrus, and the woods are not harsh but soft and manageable. Definitely a scent a man or woman could enjoy, and perfect for this weather. It's cool in the mornings, and intensely hot and sunny in the late afternoons. I already have the beginnings of my farmer's tan on my arms.

    Enjoy the day!

    Happy Birthday and retirement, Fred !
    Wordie- God bless Small !
    Love that outfit. you all smell FINE today !

    Not much rest during Prom Night- J called at 2:30 am, to say that he'd be home 'later', LOL.
    So it goes...
    They looked great and had a blast.
    Nice girl.

    It feels more humid, and warmer- so I'm getting out while I can.
    Today's scent is Aurelien Guichard's 2008 remastering of Azzaro- Couture.
    the notes do NOT do it justice.
    Per OzMoz:

    Members’ ratings

    Rate it Add to album Azzaro Couture 2008 by Azzaro
    Created: 2008 For: Women type: Chypre - Floral
    An elegant evening gown of a fragrance In 1975, Azzaro launched the perfume Azzaro Couture. In 2008, the French house is re-launching the fragrance, but not without having first re-orchestrated it. Vanessa Seward, the house’s artistic director, chose to update the original’s floral-chypre signature by bringing it a touch of clarity. In a similar fashion, the once-black bottle has veered to white. The result is elegant, sophisticated and gentle. At selected points of sale.
    Refillable Eau de Parfum 2.5 oz.; Refillable prestige Eau de Parfum (spray bulb atomizer) 2.5 oz., Eau de Parfum refill 3.4 oz.
    The floral-chypre signature flaunts five absolutes: mimosa, May rose (hawthorn), iris, ambrette seed and galbanum. The fragrance also possesses a light, fruity-spicy cassis tonality. Perfumer: Aurélien Guichard, Givaudan.

    You’ll recognize the ‘link-bottle, teardrop bottle’, originally based on a Dali painting. But here it has gone white, and the cap is graced with Swarovski crystals.
    top notes
    Galbanum, Spicy Notes, Blackcurrant Notes

    heart note
    Rose, Mimosa, Jasmine, Iris

    base note
    Patchouli, Amber

    This feels tart, juicy, then ambery- and never quite loses that dual nature.
    I'm extremely fond of it; it is a true original- unfortunately, not really easily available.
    In Boston, only NM carried it...

    Be well, dear ones.

    Beautiful day to everyone!

    Chaya, Azzaro Couture is one of my newest favorites. Love that slight mango-ish note in there. Does it great without being too sweet or fruity.

    I am wearing Bois Des Iles today, in celebration of finally ordering a FB from the Chanel site. Finally, all Exclusifs are released. Yay. Now if they can only sell a smaller size.....
    I would love to get several of these, but not in the huge bottles, although I don't mind buying the big ones for BDI, RC31 (next purchase), CdR and No22.
    $100 would be reasonable for smaller versions of 28 La Pausa, No18 or Coromandel.

    Last night I went to bed in Chinatown., and wore Bal a Versailles in the afternoon. Hubby went to bed in AP Amber Soie. He likes this very much.

    Ya'll have a stressless, scentful day :wave::wave::wave::wave:

    I started out in Eau des Merveilles again, but after smelling the downstairs neighbours delicate combination of wet dog and rotting laundry in the hall, I was in dire need of refreshment. Hiris it is.
    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.

    I'm out the door in Midnight Violet. This day called for something special, as it's my husband Fred's birthday AND his last day of work. I'm excited for him! It will be a year or two, though, before I get to participate in the retirement life. Thank you for the good wishes -- I will pass them on to my favorite Gemini!

    Happy Birthday and Retirement to "Mr. Fred Haunani!"

    Testing AL Nude Musk. It starts off with a big dollop of citrus and then dries to a scent that is similar to my thus-far-favorite AL musk, China Pearl. Very nice, very nice indeed.

    Have a great day, everyone!
