    PARFUM D' HABIT



    A very beautiful blend of vetiver, patchouli and sandalwood
    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..."

    I was sorry to read about all your struggles in yesterday's Sotd. Hugs for who need them.
    Just went home sick with a migraine - blegh. Been forever since I had one, and I had *so* hoped I'd outgrown them. I already applied scent (Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge), but I'm regretting that now. Will go shower it off.

    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.

    Happy Birthday, Sloan and Enorena !
    Welcome, Pippydee !

    Poor Veuve and PaiPai....we need new heads, no ?
    Sending love to Brielle, and all under fire this am [ in one way or another] ;-)

    Restless, unsettled- no sleep to be found here.
    Off to work in AL Mousse de Chine- because I craved ambergris-laden, deeply warm chypre today.

    At the risk of TMI-
    I find it extremely interesting that I'm actually having all sorts of visceral reaction to empty nest.
    And I'm feeling it in all the motherly organs- which is bizarre, as I'm BEYOND that physical part-
    And I'm NOT a 'somatizer' by nature.
    Hmmmm.
    Also joining Les Migraineuses today.

    Tant pis, my friends.
    May your Monday deal kindly and gently with you all !

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

    Welcome pippedydee! So you are the recipient of the Coeur d'Ete bottle... I was with Hebe when she bought it "for a friend". : - ) Enjoy - and do go for the decanting - it is easy and fun once you get going!

    I am just in Ajne Fleur de Blanche. No mishmash for me today! Had a sniffathon in Stockholm's finest scent emporia at the weekend (NK, Ahlens, Cow) and feeling a little jaded.

    I thought I'd better out myself!

    I will have to decant now - the Coeur d'Été doesn't have great sticking power, it's almost gone already. :-( It's definitely a scent that will need reapplying.

    Happy Birthday to Enorena and Sloan_8013!

    I always think of the day after Labor Day as a time of beginnings and with all that is afflicting so many of us I'm hoping it can be the beginning of less trying times for all of us.

    I was in the mood for something different today

    Rochas Moustache

    Edmond Roudnitska was one of the great perfumers of the 20th Century, the short list of perfumes he created are classics but more importantly they all feel entirely original. What is most interesting to me is when I wear one of his creations for the first time, now, it feels thouroughly modern and unlike other scents out there. In 1949 after having created Rochas Femme during World War 2 he ,in collaboration with his wife Therese, created a masculine for Rochas called Moustache. When you look at the note list for any of M. Roudnitska's creations you realize what can be accomplished with a few notes skillfully blended. The note list for Moustache is simple; bergamot, lime, pine, vetiver, moss, rare fruit. The scent that those notes create is complex and wonderful and almost smells nothing like what that note list would lead you to believe. Based on the note list I'd expect a bright citrus scent with a grassy heart leading to a darkly sweet ending. Instead Moustache wears like a citrus, dark floral, leather scent. It makes Moustache feel like alchemy instead of chemistry. The top is a bright citrus mix of lime and bergamot, as advertised. Then, on me, in the heart I get a dark floral accord which feels like a combination of narcissus and jasmine. I'd also swear there is some patchouli floating around but maybe not. The heart does have the mossy character but it mostly feels like a rich suede leather. Once again, not what I would expect based on the note list. Moustache is another example of how a skilled perfumer can take notes that one thinks they know well and combine them in a way to show new facets of them. Moustache has average longevity on me and slightly above average sillage. It seems every time I wear another of M. Roudnitska's creations I keep fumbling for ways to describe the artistry of his perfume, Moustache is no exception to that.

    Have a Twirly Tuesday everyone.

    I agree with SMM, this is a perfect time of year to feel a new beginning. I hope that everyone here who has been experiencing hard times gets a nice fresh outlook...sharpened pencils and crisp new notebooks and that bright, exciting feeling that this could be your best year yet...you are going to RULE THE SCHOOL!

    I'm continuing my Chanel-fest with 28 La Pausa today.

    This morning's deluge of rain brings to mind fall, so I am wearing Cuir de Russie with hope of cool, crisp days and fall leaves.

    DesGrieux, I love this post! That David Niven quote is perfect for today...and somehow, yes, it all works out in the end! Since you've inspired me this morning, I'll join you in the house of Acqua di Parma - wearing Iris Nobile. Happy day!

    Ah, migraine, the curse of the perfectionist mind! (that's my own theory, at least)
    I'm wearing Satellite Padpaaradscha, a lovely scent that I wish would last longer on my skin, especially the top notes.
    Top notes: juniper berries and pepper
    Heart notes: chilli pepper and jasmine
    base notes: sandalwood,amber, musk and cedar
    It must be that the terrible heat we've had this year is slowly disappearing, but I feel like wearing more "substantial" scents. I want to wear Idole, Bois des Isles... Fall is near.
