    Good morning everyone. I am still on a roll with Dolce Vita . I truly an in love with this. I read Bois de Jasmin's review of it which I think is spot on.

    Oh my God, Asha, I love that pumpkin cake! Thank you all for your wishing my happy birthday; you all made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

    Besides I'm giggeling about being called "sneaky". It's just that I like the sound of this word. And it reminds me of Gollum ("sneaky little hobbitses! Wicked, tricksy, false!"). And yes, I am weird, very weird.

    Giving each and everyone of you a big teddy bear hug!

    Oh, and SotD is 06130 Lentisque. Yes, Lentisque and I are going steady, it seems. What can I say, she's just such a beauty!

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Belated Birthday wishes to Sneaky potiron.

    For those of you for whom my birthday report have sent you to check out Buckaroo Banzai, I expect to see you all at the next meeting of the Blue Blaze Irregulars.
    Perfect Tommy will know if you're not there.

    Looking for for something that Buckaroo Banzai might possibly wear I thought about:

    Comme des Garcons X Artek Standard

    For most of us in North America our introduction to Scandanavian design aesthetic has come through the Ikea brand. Artek was one of the originators of this aesthetic; of clean lines and rounded curves over light wood colors. Artek is a Finnish modern design firm created in 1935 and continues to be an innovator in these fields to the present day. Comme des Garcons have been using unusual pairings as jumping off points to design new fragrances. Witness the very successful pairings with magazine Monocle, hatmaker Stephen Jones, and style maven Daphne Guinness. In many ways those collaborations have been true to the style exhibited by the co-promoter. It made me very interested in a fragrance which would combine a designer known for clean light designs with Comme des Garcons edgy nature. The top reflects lightness as lemon comes first followed by light applications of fennel and ginger to contrast the citrus with a slight spicy herbal counterpoint. This is a light and fleeting beginning before a healthy application of cedar takes over. Cedar is one of the cleaner notes in perfumery and also one of the most defined. For a scent inspired by furniture design it seems a perfect choice even if it is a little pedestrian and familiar.There is supposed to be saffron and musk here, according to the note list, but I have not found either of them to be present at any point to my nose. The base is where the combination of both aesthetics really takes off and elevates Standard. First there is a smoky tea note which is paired with an herbal floral note that is defined as twinflower. It reminds me a little of lavender but less floral and more herbal. Then Standard finishes with this elegant metallic note. If you look at the Artek website you will see the use of a lot of tubular aluminum and this metal accord is the smell I associate with that. A raw accord that seems to also impact not only my nose but somewhere way back on my tongue. This note is not going to be for everyone and if you're looking for a comparison it is closest to the metallic note in Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory but it is much stronger in Standard. Comme des Garcons X Artek Standard has average longevity and below average sillage. This is another strong collaborative effort on the part of Comme des Garcons, and Standard does a good job of bringing out the design aesthetic of Artek but I think this is going to be a fragrance with sharply divided opinions. As for me, I like it as it appeals to my fondness for the odd in in fragrance.

    Have a Tuneful Tuesday everyone

    Roberto, I was thisclose to twinning you in Sables today! You smell fabulous.

    MPG Or des Indes. It's been a while since I've worn this and I don't know why I don't wear it more often, it's so intoxicatingly beautiful.

    Best to all!

    Happy birthday from me, too, Sneaky Potiron - and as you can see from SMM's review, we LIKE wierd around here!

    I'm in Angelique Encens today, from a sample. I started out liking the biggest, harshest, most in-your-face incenses, like Black Cashmere and Nu, but maybe it's the weather or maybe it's my appreciation of subtlety increasing as I mature (ahem, well, a bit maybe), but my thoughts on this one have changed. When I first tried it a year or so ago, I didnt' think it had enough incense in it. I thought it was wishy washy and 'lite'. But today I really get the complexity and light hand with which this was created. Yes, it's certainly an incense, but it's also a bit woody and a bit floral and on consideration the kind of thing I could see my hand reaching for on a daily basis.

    Now I am on the School Run, I have to wear things that are not so outre and literally won't scare the horses. I am beginning to have a very different appreciation of daily perfumes and think that a bottle of Angelique Encens would be a wonderful thing to have on one's dresser. What a luxurious School Run perfume! (And of course I'm still saving up for my bottle of L'Air de Rien for non-school days.)

    I wish you all love and light today.

    Good morning all and a huge belated BIRTHDAY HUG to POTIRON Today is a rainy and grey day! The kind of weather that makes me wanna crawl back in bed with a good book.... Instead I'm having one of my Diva days when I dress up ever so slightly. No outfit is complete without a classy scent,so I decided to wear some Cuir de russie from my precious decant.I'm scared to admit how much I love this scent! Hope you all have a nice day!

    Potiron---you're making me want some of that Lentisque......I've already put in a bid ;-)

    As the mornings are darker later, I would have expected our son to sleep in a bit longer. Somehow he's been waking up earlier and ready to party! Spent 6:30-8 dancing around the kitchen. I'm beat but he's ready for more. Need to get out of the house to tire him out....

    SotD? Tossing a coin between Kelly Caleche and Nahema parfum.

    Back to the grind after a great weekend away. I am wafting in Hypnotic Poison this morning trying to get in the mood to do payroll. I preordered Back to Black, can't wait for it. Used my sample to death over the weekend.

    Have a wonderful Tuesday!
