    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..."

    Another pre-dawn posting here. I'm pretty sure I will be wearing Ormonde Woman later on today, but I need to sleep on that notion before I will know for sure. Take care, all.

    Happy birthday SMM! May you and the Wild Poodles run free this weekend!
    (And in my head, I am now singing the Stones song Wild Horses with Poodles instead, in tribute.)

    Chaya, cariad, you're getting your little lad back for a weekend! Deepest joy! I bet your kitchen will be buzzing with deliciosity all weekend. Wish I could be there to smell it. (And eat it!)

    Dimi, darling man; I have been really enjoying your account on Facebook of your travels around Europe with the missus. You have been having a blast, haven't you?

    I'm in... a mystery fragrance. It was in my baggie of 'ones to try' but the label had fallen off. I like it though. Softish, roundish, floralish, richish, with some vanilla in the back end to yum it up. It certainly plays nicely with the remnants of the Borneo 1834 I slept in. Wish I knew what it was, as I'd wear it more often. Pants!

    OK, gotta go, Small girl is adamant we're going to make gingerbread dogs. Not men, dogs. She's a tad obsessive in her campaign to get a puppy, but we are strong in our resistance.

    Happy Friday all.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes as I turn a Nifty Fifty today.
    I have been on an oud kick lately with all of the great ouds that have been released this year and for my birthday I thought I'd wear the one I think is perhaps the best of the ones released this year.

    By Kilian Pure Oud

    This renaissance of oud we've experienced in 2009 has found a number of perfumers attempting to tame the wild beast that is oud. It is not an easy task. Give it too much space and that is all you get. Dumb it down too much and you wonder what the point is of having it in your perfume. Too much oud and it is an acquired taste as it overwhelms, too little oud and the interesting qualities leave you wanting more. Calice Becker has, for my money, done the best job of getting this balance right in the 2009 release for By Kilian, Pure Oud. When you see a fragrance named Pure Oud you brace yourself for a blast of oud and what Mme Becker does, that is quite wonderful here, is she gives you that but then she pairs it up with the strongest notes set of notes in the perfumer's toolbox. This creates a beautiful complex trip into the darkest areas a fragrance can land. The top is the promised oud and it is paired with just a hint of tobacco. The slightly sweet aspect of the tobacco contrasts well with the oud. The heart is a dance of leather and oud and it is a raw leather to go with the raw oud. Just when I think this can't get more intense a civet note enters the mix. This phase is an animalic lover's dream as the oud provides an incredible base for the leather and civet. Plus those notes have enough heft to push back against the oud and take their place as olfactory equals in the heart. The base is the maple syrup accord that immortelle brings to things and it is also a great choice as it imparts a woody richness to the oud which allows Pure Oud to finish on high note. Pure Oud has outstanding longevity on me but it is a very close wearing scent. Mme. Becker has created the most well-balanced oud I've experienced, so far, as by choosing notes and accords that have an equal intensity to oud she ends up revealing all of oud's wonderful complexities in comparison. Pure Oud is a pure pleasure to wear.

    Have a Fabulous Friday everyone.

    I'm wearing the middle formulation today....I am struck by how similar it is to Chanel No 19. Perfect for the odd, unseasonably warm weather that is blanketing Southern New England this week....

    Parfumerie Generale Felanilla. Right now I'm reading it as mostly vanilla and amber, Shalimar meets Ambre Narguile if you will. Very cosy.

    Big number equals big pie.

    Unearthed my sample of Datura Noir for the day.
    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.

    I don't give astrology much credence, but given the fact that Weird Al turns 50 today, too, I can't help but detect a pattern.

    I've been frantically searching for my sample of DK Black Cashmere without any success. I've been craving this all morning. Opted for Chaos instead which isn't quite floating my boat. Don't you hate it when that happens?

    Anyway, moving along, scent for tonight at work? Hmmmmm, either SL El Attarine, or possibly Barbara Bui Le Parfum if it shows up in my mailbox today!
