    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..."

    Yet another day in SL Encens et Lavande for me, poured the last drops of it into the little spray bottle. But no worries, have a full bottle waiting!

    Happy Tuesday all!

    Thanks to the super-lovely Ubu I am sampling Guerlain Insolence today and have the biggest smile on my face! I love it, Mr Hebe loves it, and the world is a wonderful place. I've blogged some quick thoughts here - http://community.basenotes.net/blog.php?b=664 and think I may need to track down a 30ml bottle for my Christmas list.

    Hebe- isn't Insolence just gorgeous ?

    Back to wearing E L P C Tuberose Gardenia - can't get enough of this stuff.

    Happy Tuesday to all and my many thoughts to all those in need today .

    I started a Reformulated Fragrance List thread on the Fragrance Industry Discussion Board- everyone who has noticed a difference in their scent recently - like Odalisque by PdN, Caron, Guerlain etc can add to it . it'll be good to have a record and maybe we can do something proactive with the list too .

    I decided to experiment and wear Ghost Deep Night today, I usually go for it as an evening scent, but chatting to someone yesterday made me think of giving it a go in daylight. I'm undecided if it's appropriate for the office.

    Vanille Galante.

    Not too much vanilla, eh? I like it though. Borders on aquatic, but not quite there. Smells overwhelmingly like flower stems. Lily, is my guess. Odd, but nice.
    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 LOVE Vanille Galante! In my top 10 for sure. The ones with ylang ylang seem to reel me in - am wearing Chanel Cuir de Russie today and have just learnt there is ylang in that too! I also get vanilla and salty, watery lily in VG.

    It has been a long three days for some of you. I hope the next three days bring healing and acceptance to those who need either or both. Thankfully the last three days have been good but busy, for me.
    Belated Happy Birthday to exquisitely me but I'm not too worried about it because at this moment she only should have eyes for bluesoul and is not reading this board.
    Which is a sure sign that somewhere out there love springs eternal.

    Wearing my birthday present from my ScentMother, ComDiva:

    Lorenzo Villoresi Spezie

    We have a wonderful spice store near us called Penzey's and I love when I shop in there that first moment when I walk through the door. My nose is met with a melange of spices and it all smells different and unique every time depending on what is out for sampling and in bulk. I've always thought what a wonderful smell this would be if a perfumer could capture this. Well Lorenzo Villoresi must think the same thing because his 1994 fragrance Spezie does exactly this. Twelve of the 18 listed notes in Spezie are spice notes and they create the feeling of walking in that spice store near perfectly. The entry to Sig. Villoresi's spice rack starts with a mix of coriander and cardamom these are the most prominent notes but off on a far rack the aromatic jars containing eucalyptus and mint are noticeable. Another few steps deeper into the store and I encounter the section containing pepper and thyme which when I turn around on the other side of the aisle, the cinnamon and nutmeg also appear. Underneath all of this floats a cumin note that is exquisitely balanced. Cumin is the note that could have pushed all of the spices to the side but Sig. Villoresi keeps it under control and instead it feels like an appropriate partner. The base carries the clasical mix of rosemary and smoky sage along with a more unusual accord of tomato leaves. This isn't an accord I would think I'd want in a perfume but in Spezie it fits seamlessly and appropirately. Spezie has excellent longevity and sillage. If you are a lover of spice notes in perfumery this is a must try, as along with Piper Nigrum, Sig. Villoresi has made two of the stand-out fragrances in this area of fragrance. Back in the 60's Alka-Seltzer used to have a commercial built around the line "Mama Mia That's a Spicy Meatball!" I'd like to update that line a bit "Sig. Villoresi That's a Spicy Perfume!"

    Have a Titanic Tuesday everyone.

    I'm sampling Lulu Beauty's LulaMae perfume oil this morning. Many thanks to Mysticknot for introducing me to Lulu Beauty's fragrances! This one is named for the character LulaMae Barnes, who renamed herself Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's supposed to be a freesia blend, and lists Italian bergamot, African lilies, gardenias, soft vanilla, and musk. I get a rich, almost overripe fruity impression, and the gardenia smells very true. These scents are lush and pretty, yet uncomplicated. And they're pretty long lastint, too. I'm so glad to have discovered them. I think of the three I've tried so far Marlena is my favorite, but I don't know...doing the Basenotes salute this morning.

    I hope everyone has a good day.

    Penzeys, oh yeah. Their HQ is here, and they were supposed to get back to me about a
    "factory" tour for us Upper Midwest sniffers. I should probably get back on that.

    SMM - I LOOOOVE Penzeys. Actually - going in there is a real education in sniffing. Each time I go I treat it like a perfume trip

    Been very busy at work recently - so not much time to catch up on the boards.

    Today - the last of my Fifi Chachnil.

    And Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Conditioner in my hair.

    The Fifi will be a repurchase. Tobacco, spices, labdanum. I feel good wearing this and of all of this school of scents - (Sage Onyx comes to mind), this one doesn't go "off" on my skin.

    Off to perform more interpretive dancing. Have I told you how much I love being a computer trainer

    Viva la VISA!
    I love this scent as re-envisioned by Aurelien Guichard. Notes are: white peach, pear, violet leaves, Italian bergamot, yellow mandarin. Heart notes include ylang essence, rose, immortelle and orange flower absolutes. The dry down consists of essence of Indonesian Patchouli and sandalwood, vetiver, moss, vanilla beans, benzoin and a gourmand leathery accord.*

    Hello, dears...
    You smell pretty fine.

    How are our 'under the radar' and 'under the weather ' ones ???
    I'm missing Mousie and many others.

    I'm in Elixir des Merveilles today - WHY don't I wear this more often ?
    It has everything I love, and it 'sings' so beautifully.

    Yesterday, I celebrated NOT being quadriplegic [ 24 years post MVA- a lady went thru a walk light at 45 MPH ! ]...feeling peaceful about it.

    Today, a dear friend turns 21- SUCH a beautiful soul.
    I knew he would be someone extraordinary, even in gestation ;-)
    His amazing mother died pitifully young, in the full bloom of her beauty.
    I need to call his aunt [ who wound up adopting her sister's young children], to see what he'd like for birthday dessert ;-)

    Loving hugs to all who could use them.
    I'm not goin' anywhere soon, LOL.;-)
