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..."

ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Make it a good one, lilybelle!
I'm in a bit of a perfume funk today - can't choose.
Maybe Safran Troublant will do.
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.

But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
LILYBELLE! Happy Birthday to one of the best basenoters around!

Quote from Scented Salamander Creed Cypres Musc review:
"I think of it as smelling like passionate sex on the ground under a forest of pine trees with pinecones jabbing into naked flesh."
Um, yes. This is FBW

And Happy Birthday to Lilybelle
ETA: I woke up this morning and was so overjoyed to be able to smell again, I grabbed my yummy MR and forgot all about all the lovely new goodies I have to try, from my kind swapping fellow BNe'rs. There will most definitely be a new SotE.

Happy Birthday to Lilybelle!!! I hope you have a great smelling day and somewhere a new acquisition appears for you.
The beginning of a fall chill is starting to creep around the edges here at Stately Somerville Manor. This is going to be a busy weekend because the art exhibit my wife is co-curator of, and exhibitor at, has its opening on Sunday.
The exhibit is called The Art of Mosaic 2009 and the link for those interested is here:
If you're local to Somerville stop by on Sunday I'll be the devastatingly great smelling bartender for the afternoon.
Today I'm wearing something that Chaya turned me on to.
Parfums de Nicolai Vanille Tonka
Vanilla is one of those love/hate notes. There are many, me amongst them, that love the comforting feel of vanilla. There are others who feel it is a sickly sweet intruder on their scents and would wish for all perfumers to lock up their vanilla. Vanilla is certainly a popular note in perfumery. Most times I know what to expect when I wear a scent which has vanilla or vanille in the name. Therefore it is a pleasure when a perfumer can surprise me with a new take on vanilla. Patricia de Nicolai does just that with here 1997 release, Vanille Tonka. When you look at the name you think, Vanille and Tonka, this is like double vanilla. The reality is far different, as by bracketing the titular notes with citrus up front and incense in the rear Mme. de Nicolai creates something entirely unexpected. The top is a mix of tangerine and lime according to the note list but it really is mostly lime there is some aspect of something less tart than the lime but the edge of the lime is what carries you into the heart. The heart is vanilla but this is the vanilla of the bean less sugary sweet and more subtly rich. The pairing with tonka bean is great because the sharp lime works to bring out the spiciness inherent in tonka. Particularly the cinnamon character. So often when tonka bean is used I get teasing hints of the cinnamon and clove character that is inherent to tonka. By using the acidity of the lime at the top it seems to make my nose more receptive to the cinnamon and clove, and in turn it keeps what could be a sticky sweet mess of a vanillla heart under control and really miles away from being sweet at all. The base is a magnificent contrast as Mme. de Nicolai gives this a blast of frankincense. This accord feels like as dry of an incense accord as I've encountered and that arid quality realy turns this scent on its ear and turns it into a sweeter than normal incense scent, on me. Vanille Tonka has average longevity on me and modest sillage. Vanilla scents usually tend towards the gourmand side of the street but Patricia de Nicolai has somehow made a genre-bending version of vanilla that is far from gourmand but very close to being unforgettable.
Have a Fashionable Friday everyone.

I'm feeling oh so fine in Chanel 22 this lovely Friday morning. The office is quiet, and I'm looking forward to getting a lot done and then going out for a drink after work.
I hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Birthday Dear Lilybelle, Happy Birthday to you!

Good morning all and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lilybelle!! Hope you have a great day! As for me I'm having a lousy day Huge fight with bf....Ironically sotd is Trouble...
Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!
I hope everyone will join me for a glass...
It's a sad day to have a birthday. We lived in NY on 9/11/01. My husband worked on Water Street about a mile from Ground Zero. I always start my birthday off by watching the memorials on TV. My husband makes me turn it off because it's very upsetting, but I don't want to forget. I won't say anthing more about that. I don't want to be a drag on anybody's happy friday, especially my own!
I'm wearing Fendi edt this morning, which is an '80s power fragrance if ever there was one. It smells like a cross between Coco and Paloma Picasso. I found it on the sale shelf at the drugstore for $8, so of course I had to bring the poor underappreciated orphan home with me. I really like it, but it might be better to spray a bit into lotion or body oil to tone it down a bit.
TGIF! Love to you all.
Versace pour Homme today

Yes, it's a tough day to get through and I don't think it will ever get any easier. I am feeling fragile and sad.

After 10 days with just 4 bottles and 2 samples, I was anxious to get home. For the past days I smelled phantom Attrape Coeur so that is what I am wearing today.

Safran Troublant for me today.
Happy Birthday LilyBelle!
Leaning toward a second day in Fantasia de Fleurs! Beautiful.
I worked in the WTC back in the early 80s and remember it so well. I am still saddened on every trip into the city, still halfway expecting to see it there, like some ghost.
Versace Versense! Happy birthday to Lilybelle!

I am in Ambre de Cabochard. It's a bit like a rubbish version of Coco, but it's not that bad.
