    Aomassi seems appropriate on this cold, dull day. It's nutty, expansive feeling makes
    me feel cosseted and warm.

    A Travers le Miroir - The more I wear it the more I like it. It's very soft, the menthol tuberose is never overpowering and it dries down to a warm cedar base.

    Good morning all. I'm in a much better mood than I've been for a while now! Looking forward till later.Me,the bf and some friends are going to see a concert later.The band is called "Defectors".They could best be described as a garage band with roots in the 60's rock.I've heard they play on saws and knives in addition to more traditional instruments....This could be interesting! Sotd is an old favourite, JPG Classique.

    Wow! Scent triplets with The Fragrant Zebra and Chaya.

    Estee Lauder Private Collection Jasmine White Moss

    The banning of oakmoss as an ingredient is creating some interesting by-products as perfumers try to compose chypres without using the out of favor ingredient. This is leading to a renaissance of chypres being composed as the creativity of these artists is being challenged. One of the latest and best examples of this trend is the third release in the Estee Lauder Private Collection, Jasmine White Moss. This 2009 release is, according to the press materials, a co-creation of Estee Lauder who had been working on this in the 80's and it was re-discovered and finished by her granddaughter Aerin Lauder. I think this explains the feel of Jasmine White Moss as a cross between a strong floral 80's scent and a cleaner more modern 21st century creation. The top of this does go on with a huge floral bang reminiscent of that 80's style. What is nice is where one of those 80's powerhouses would have kept you encircled in that floral cloud; Jasmine White Moss allows the sun to shine in a bit and break up the floral fog. What shines in is what is called in the notes, White Moss Mist. I'm not sure if I know what that is but to my nose it smells like clean fresh oakmoss right out of the package. What that means is this accord has the ability to add some of the depth of oakmoss without some of the funkier aspects that go along with it. It feels like those elements have been left behind in the chemistry behind composing a replacement for it. That doesn't make it smell bad it makes it smell different like a fresh version of oakmoss and in Jasmine White moss it creates a brightness in the heart which I find captivating. Jasmine White Moss stays firmly floral and white moss for most of its development. I get some patchouli and vetiver very late in the drydown but this scent is very much what it says on the bottle. Jasmine White Moss has above average longevity and above average projection. They say necessity is the mother of invention, in this case it looks like Estee Lauder might have been the grandmother of invention for Aerin Lauder and the invention they created is quite beautiful.

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.

    FM Carnal Flower today (Just like Lian down there....)... the first time I wore this, all I got was tuberose, but I'm getting some rooty goodness freshening it up this time. It's amazing how much easier it is for me to pick up subtleties now that the weather has turned...

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

    Joining TwoRoads in Jean Pascal pour Homme today. A unique fougere fragrance the likes of which I have yet to find any other fragrance approaches. From my review on BN:

    'starts out sweet and spicy and evolves rapidly into an arrestingly smooth and muted floral of considerable depth. The finish shows a background of the floral notes but now interwoven with an earthy, musky framework'.

    Still giggling at the idea of Chaya in hot pink scrubs and lippy with a large pig emerging slowly from her backside. Sorry. My brain seems to be in cartoon mode

    It sounds like I'm going to have to make a side trip today to go smell that EL Jasmine and White Moss. Hmm.....

    Small had her very first dance class yesterday and I was nervous about it - she loves music and sings constantly, but she hates 'gym' in school, so it could have gone either way. Plus she really wanted to do the 'pink tutu' kind of dancing and I didn't know if it might be more self-expression to music.

    Not to worry. We walked in and there were half a dozen little darlings in pink tutus and hair ribbons. Small Heaven. She kept coming over to me saying "Mummy, I can DO it!!", bless her. And this morning she told us very solemnly "I don't want to go to school any more. I want to go to dancing school every day please." So this afternoon we're off tutu shopping. Yay! I am really not a girly girl, but I am so delighted Small has found something she loves that I don't care how much tulle I have to wade through. ('Tulle' is that gauzy fabric they make tutus out of, isn't it? Well, you know what I mean, anyway.)

    I'm now wearing Ava Luxe's No23, but this morning I had my first private German lesson, and for that I wore Kenzo Flower, because it's pretty inoffensive. I like my teacher and I'm sure that by December I'll be more confident with my German. Hey - I might even be able to understand more than 3 words the Kindergarten teacher says to me!

    Hope you all have a good day and may all your vocabularies be extended just a smidgeon.

    Wearing OJ Champaca and testing DSH Cyan - this is how Creed Love in Black should smell - violet, cucumber, and a general sense of wateriness and floaty, frondy vegetation.

    Also re-testing a sample of DSH Jitterbug - a beautiful vintage-style scent, which is best appreciated when young, if that is not a contradiction in terms. By which I mean that it seems to have a very short life, ie becomes unacceptably pungent as soon as your back is turned.

    Another hot day predicted here. I woke myself up in the most delightful way today, with several spritzes of Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose (thank you, ComDiva for sharing this with me!).

    The experience was like diving into a perfect half grapefruit, with all those little droplets shooting out all over the place. I am getting the rose now, too, now that the citrus has settled a bit. Fun and yummy, I say!
