    Great Monday to all

    ROCABAR



    HERMÉS

    Rocabar has top notes of juniper berries, cedar leaves and lavender-nut and nutmeg-cinnamon accords. The heart has notes of cyprus from Italy and two types of cedars. Base notes are Canadian fir trees and vanilla pods.
    Wonderful scent !!!

    Feeling very girly in MJ Blush.
    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.

    A Travers le Miroir by Thierry Mugler. This is my first time testing (it was a blind buy) and its coming across as a menthol tuberose with a lot of anise. Not so sure about this, it may end up on the swap/sale board sometime soon. More testing required!!

    What a great weekend which started by sharing Rosh Hashanah with ComDiva and her family. We had a wonderful evening.
    Saturday was groom the Wild Poodles of Somerville day. Neither poodle likes this activity very much and so it is a struggle to get through it for everyone involved. At the end we have clean sweet smelling poodles for at least a few days. Went wandering the local mall and got to try the new Narciso Rodriguez Musk for Men parfum oil. This is really good stuff and it is something I'm going to have to go try again.
    Sunday a friend came up who is trying to learn more about fragrances and I took her over to Copley and we went through the latest releases. Once again, I think I'm the only one that thinks the new Natori is awful as my friend and her daughter both loved it. I have to also say for a fruity floral Marc Jacobs Lola is not bad especially when you're trying the other new releases like Michael Kors Very Hollywood.
    A weekend where I was sniffing one place or another is a good weekend.

    There is an ever increasing chill in the air but I'm going to try and keep summer going on my skin.

    Carthusia Caprissimo

    Carthusia makes two of my favorite scents in Carthusia Uomo and Numero Uno. Numero Uno is one of the better chypres out there, on me. I was very excited when I read Carthusia was re-issuing Caprissimo which was reportedly a former gem of a green chypre. I haven't been able to confirm whether this re-issue has any resemblance to the original but I do know that I like this version quite a bit. The top starts with a Mediterranean lemon accord mixed with green aspects. This is an opening that is bright and very common. For all of that familiarity I find it is one I like quite a bit. The heart of Carpissimo is a deep floral mix of jasmine, frangipani, and osmanthus. The green notes from the top stay in place to keep the floral heart from becoming too much the focus of Caprissimo. These three floral notes feel like they are made for each other as they create a heady floral bouquet. The base is a beautiful mix of cedar, sandalwood and myrrh. This mix of woods and myrrh make for a strong base that contrasts the green floral of the heart. Caprissimo feels like another take on a chypre without the oakmoss and the use of the myrrh works for me in that regard. If the original Caprissimo was indeed a green chypre it is my guess that this new incarnation is an attempt to stay true to that original while working within the new formulation guidelines. Caprissimo has average longevity on me and average sillage. Caprissimo is another winner for me from Carthusia.

    Have a Masterful Monday everyone.

    Hi, everyone!

    I'm still flying high from a truly lovely start to the Jewish New Year, which kicked off with SMM and his DW joining us for dinner, and SMM's sneaky surprise of replenishing my AWOL Bois d'Armenie!!!! (How does one lose an entire bottle, especially one as big as B'A? I've been asking myself that for the last year plus as I dug under the bed and through shelves...) Have been reveling in having this favorite of mine back in my collection all weekend...

    Today's SoTD is a continuation of my (latest) incense kick: L'Artisan's L'eau du Navigateur. On me, this one gets off to a slightly harsh start, making me think it wasn't going to work despite having many of my very favorite notes in it. Then, what I think of as the classic JC Ellena smoothness kicks in, and now I'm doing the Basenotes salute (wrist-to-nose, elbow down and forward, fyi) with embarrassing frequency. Dark, rich and intriguing. What I would call a masculine-trending unisex fragrance, and a winner.

    L’eau du Navigateur Notes: Bergamot, galbanum, coffee liquor, cinnamon, cedar, incense, opoponax, leather.

    Morning all

    Spent the last week cleaning out our to-be-renovated barn. Filled one HUGE industrial dumpster with another to be delivered Friday. Hopefully will not get hanta virus by the time we're done! Got rid of many old appliances that people dumped off before my husband bought the property. One disadvantage to living out in the boonies!

    Sorry, I'm becoming a bit of an infrequent flyer here. Life is just so busy at the mo. Nothing dreaful happening, just lots of stuff, you know?
    But I still do mentally take not of my SOTD each day, even if I don't get around to posting it.
    Today I started off in Chanel No22 edt. By jingo that's good stuff! Today the weather is quite warm so I get a lot of sweetness from it. Usually I say 'it smells like snow makes me feel' - your basic primordial joy. Good juice.

    Now I'm about to go hit the supermarket I"ve topped up with some Opium. But to be kind to the other shoppers (and myself - it's HOT today! 27C!) I've gone for the lovely summer ltd ed - Opium Fleur Imperiale. I love this stuff. Because I love Opium, this is great because it opens the same, but the big diva has been on a diet and doesn't stomp around the room shouting at everyone now. Somehow they have made it smell 'the same but quieter'. No idea how those clever chaps do it, but I do love them for their remarkable abilities.

    I'm reading Chandler Burr's Perfect Scent - the one where he follows SJP and Ellena as they each create a scent. It's fascinating. Such interesting insights into the industry.

    So I'm off to hang out the laundry before I take Small to buy groceries and some more wool to finish the shawl thing I'm knitting. (Damson by Ysolde Teague for any fellow knitters on the board.) Small is doing better in school, bless her little heart, and seems to be making some friends. The bribery is still working and every day she comes out and says 'I was good! Can I have Smarties now?'

    Hugs and Smarties to all and Happy New Year to you too.

    I was intrigued by this, as a fellow knitter with the alter ego screen name of "Runraglan" - not a patch on "Knit_at_Nite", mind! I found a picture of your shawl on Flickr, not having heard of Ysolde Teague before. The last major garment I made was a Debbie Bliss jacket, which went to a friend (like most of my output) on account of my dodgy tension. Am currently knitting a hedgehog for Soir, though I don't think she believes it.

    Anyway, SOTD is Bvlgari Black, with a dab of CK Truth on the side.

    I'm rather excited about my SotD, Royal Palm by Stephanie de Saint-Aignan.



    This fragrance was created by Saint-Aignan to be the signature fragrance for the famous Royal Palm hotel in Mauritius. It is really lovely on me, from the slightly sweet grapefruit at the beginning to the gentle spice & woods drydown. I think it's perfect for summer and early fall. I haven't had it on long enough to report on longevity, but it is on the light side for sure. Here are the notes (from Luckyscent): Grapefruit, jasmine, iris, cardamom, cinnamon, pink pepper, black pepper, clove, vetiver, cedar wood, leather and incense.

    Inspired by the Musc Ravageur thread, I'm wearing Creed Tuberose Indiana today (after checking to see whether I should be wearing scent #1 for the 3x3). I'm starting to warm up to this note. We're having a beautiful end of summer day here-- 75º, but rising. I'm appreciating TI more and more. Tastes really do change.

    Chanel No19 makes the perfect afternoon scent.

    Love by By Kilian... I bought it for my birthday. Well, that's the reason I used to justify paying the high price

    Hi all!

    Today's SOTD was my first test of Serge Lutens Santal De Mysore.



    Butter.

    Butter cascading smoothly over lightly herbal amber and a pinch of citrus, grounded with cinnamon. As the day wore on and the butter faded, there was a beautiful moment combining cedar, the residual amber, the sandalwood peeking through, and the cinnamon (with a pinch of butter remaining) that was deeply enchanting. The base was the sandalwood of the name, but quite weak after the seriously strong butter-fest in first few hours.

    The middle was transcendent and the base was nice, but I'm just not sold on the top. But I can easily see how this could be grail material for some.



    Oh, and my SOTE has been Creed Original Vetiver.



    Typical bright Creed citrus, heavy on the neroli, paired with just a pinch of green grassy vetiver.
