    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..."

    Am making the most of this Indian summer we are having, with something light and airy: Un Jardin Apres La Mousson.

    Watery green melon. Very pretty. Not really me, as it goes, but I got a free 15 ml mini with my bottle of Un Jardin sur le Nil.

    Maubous..... No, not again! L'Or de Torrente today.

    We got a wintery weather advisory here till 1 pm in our county and I am finally off after pulling 21 days in a row. What am I gonna do? De***t some -- and I am sorry about the wait, sort through and cut up about 8 pounds of tomatoes, 4 pounds of peppers and 2 pound of onions for salsa -- it was a couple of bags from a co-worker and nobody wanted them since they were not in a prime condition, and knit hats with ears for Mr.T and me. (Stitching will have to wait, Zinnias are coming along very slowly and Ubu's project is still in a project stage ).

    Have a great start to your week, bunch!

    Apparently it's meant to convey the feel of wool and I think there's a raspiness to it that invokes it perfectly. The notes are vetiver, neroli, bergamot, grilled hazelnut, dry fruit, cereals and tonka bean.

I've tried Straight to Heaven and Back to Black so I'm looking forward to sniffing the other six and maybe I'll even get a chance to smell the limited pure oud.
    I'll check back in when I get home this afternoon.

    That's some kiss for a Monday morning, Roberto. Such a great B&W photo--the variety of stripes, the swirls in the fabric and Bacall's hair.

    Mr. Mike, you've provided another form o' porn--plus teased us northerners with the sight of flowers.

    Then there’s Mr. & Mrs. Twolf. Yep, better knit that fella some earflaps. (Funny, I never pictured Mr. T that short and pale.)

    Spilt some Mitsouko yesters, so I've had enough of that for a while. For contrast, I'm sampling Bond’s Brooklyn. I didn't care much for this during a prior sniff, but darned if it is speaking to me today.

    The grapefruit top note is just what I needed for a sluggish Monday morn--a bit of pleasant, bright smelling salts to open my eyes. An impetuous judgement (“masculine!”) sparked by the juniper note, is being pushed aside as I welcome the cardamom. I can enjoy this scent for a day. Not $-worthy, but Brooklyn deserves credit for working with my finicky skin and narrow preferences.

    I can see where others might think this fairly pedestrian, but it's the kind of routine frag I hope the civilians (non-BNers) choose to wear.

    Who gave me this sample--Ubu? Whoever, thank you. I needed something more than coffee for momentum.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

Nothing gourmand. I was craving orange blossom but couldn't find anything in my stash to satisfy. I finally spontaneously settled on DK Gold, and it's perfect. Gorgeous in fact!

    This mornings' wearing of Gypsy Water proved to be an utter disappointment...the name is too intriguing for such a weak & meaningless frag. Finally got a chance to re-spritz, so I chose to douse myself in the glorious 31 Rue Cambon. GORGEOUS! Now THIS is what I want to smell like!

    Now I'm ready to post my SotD as I'm wearing four different By Kilian scents. Straight to Heaven, A Taste of Heaven, Cruel Intentions and Prelude to Love. I sniffed all of them including the two latest Back to Black and Pure Oud.
    Kilian Henessy is a passionate friendly perfumer and it was interesting talking to him for about an hour this afternoon.
    Pure Oud is the best of the bunch and I am tempted to buy a bottle of it.
    Cruel Intentions is my second favorite and I did get a travel set of that one signed by Kilian. If I couldn't have the Pure Oud might as well have the one with oud in it.
    Back to Black and Straight to Heaven are the next favorites both of them are solidly tobacco and rose centered scents respectively and I liked both of them.
    Prelude to Love was a surprisingly good citrus scent which was surprising because of the other scents in the line as it seems almost out of place.
    Love was a lot of fun as it is meant to evoke the flavor of a marshamallow although Kilian told us that it is one of the biggest sellers in the Middle East because it is also reminiscent of desert indigenous to that region of the world.
    Beyond Love is a great tuberose and Kilian told us how he had to keep upping thepercentage of tuberose until there was enough to produce appropriate sillage.
    Liaisons Dangereuse Was good but not great for me and the only one that didn't really sing for me.
    I expected to like A Taste of Heaven more that I did and this might just be a caseof expectations being too high while i was being pleasantly surprised by the others which i thought i wouldn't like as much. The absinthe is good in it but I'm going ot have to give it another wear before I consign it to last place in the line.
    Added bonus to the day was I bumped into Jarvis and he let me test a shot of two of the new Francis Kurkdjian scents; Lumiere Noir pour Femme and Cologne pour Le Soir. both of these are very good and I'm going to have to make an effort to seek these out. Thanks to Jarvis for the sniff, the company and the ride to the train.

    Hi all! Checking in late. Happy Birthday to LittleLovetheScents, and Happy Anniversary to JustCallMeMo. May your headache go away and never return, Outlandish. And -- darn! -- it looks like I'm too late to see Twolf's photo (?).

    My SotD has been Micallef Black Sea, from a sample. I am loving it, and learning that gaiac wood is a wonderful thing. For those who haven't tried this beauty, look at the interesting list of notes: pink peppercorns, cloves, cypress, cinnamon, gaiac, saffron, lily of the valley, carnation, sandalwood, cedar, incense, labdanum, vanilla.

    SMM, I am glad you had fun and enjoyed the scents. I own a bottle of Cruel Intentions and the travel set of Straight to Heaven. Love the Oud, but it does not love my wallet. Love is very nice on me. I bought a bunch of samples of Love and poured them into a nice atomizer. I am with you, my least favorite is Taste of Heaven.

    Today the weather was cold for So Cal. When I left for work and when I came back home it was 63, yeah, go ahead, laugh. It is cold for So Cal., so I wore Hypnotic Poison and I even received a compliment (that never happens!)

    No more headaches people, please!!! Good vibes from me to you.
