    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    At Gump's in San Francisco:

    Floris
    Seringa
    (1992)
    Douglas Cope
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Petitgrain, Mandarin, Orange
    Middle Notes: Rose, Ylang-Ylang, Lily
    Base Notes: Jasmine, Tuberose, Amber, Oakmoss

    The only thing this lacks to be a true chypre is patchouli in the base. Who knows? Maybe they just forgot to list it. It smells like a very nice floral chypre to me, so I popped for it.

    Steam Aoud by Montale - yes it does smell like steam infused with rose and oud.
    Isos by Farmacia ss. Annunziata - black pepper guaiac wood scent - Similar to Navegar in smell but deeper, more mysterious. I like this house!
    Bois du Turquie - I sprung for a bottle of this because it is an incense that highlights my favorite notes - orange, incense, patchouli, sandalwood, and I am not sure how much longer anything from MPG will be on the market, and Sculpture of the Soul's review of it was very convincing. But mostly it just smells good - kind of sweeps you away.

    No. 06 Eau Frappée by IUNX

    A light lemon fragrance. A bit on the sweet side, but not cloying.
    Also bought Pulp & Umbrella Pine candles, which are very good.
    The Pine is an incense-y pine & pulp is a very green fruity fragrance
    - not so sweet.

    At Neiman's in San Francisco:

    Tom Ford
    Private Blends
    Arabian Wood
    (2009)
    Top Notes: Lavender, Orange Blossom, Galbanum, Bergamot
    Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Freesia, Rose de Mai, Ylang Ylang, Rose Absolute, Jasmine, Gardenia
    Base Notes: Honey, Orris, Patchouli, Cedar, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Amber

    and

    Guerlain

    Paris — New York
    (2009)
    Top Notes: Mandarin, Bergamot
    Middle Notes: Cardamom
    Base Notes: Vanilla, Cinnamon, Cedar

    Both very nice. I had a bit of a struggle with the Tom Fords between Arabian Wood and Italian Cypress, but the chypré character of the former won the day...

    Hi all,

    Was out of town and found myself in a little shop in a horrible little mall that had a super-cheap tester of Cartier Declaration Eau Genereuse, so I grabbed it based on a quick sniff, my respect for JC Ellena, and its popularity with a couple of folks here.



    Hopefully, this wasn't a huge mistake.

    Also, I just want to plug my NY trip report, which has a ton of my latest purchases in it...
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    "Une rose chyprée" by Andy Tauer (from AusLiebeZumDuft). And "Balafre" by Lancôme, via Ebay!
    Very different scents. One is very manly, a big fougère!, and the other is very rosy.... but manly enough. Both are wonderful!

    Gupts, Your Samsaras look fantastic. I bought the current 100ml EDP last month and really enjoyed it at first whiff and still do, I hear quite a bit that Guerlain's vintage formulations and parfums are generally better. Have you tried the current one to give a brief comparison? thanks in advance

    Aka Atraepe Coeur EdT, I probably could have waited to just buy Atraepe, however I love the scent but don't think I'm ever going to spend Les Parisiennes prices on it. I comparison tested them last night and the Evasion was strong enough and lasted long enough such that it will suffice.
