"OOOOOOH WHAT A GOAL! IT'S DANNY ROSE, ON HIS PREMIER LEAGUE DEBUT, WITH A MEMORABLE STRIKE!"
from a sample
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..."

Opus IV by Amouage
SotD - Silver Mountain Water by Creed
Today I am layering some old samples I have at school of 2 sprays of TV and one spray of TL as the base. I like it a lot, and it kind of reminds me of Cuirs by Carner Barcelona.

Penhaligon's English Fern
Paul Smith Story.
A truly delicious layering of Santa Maria Novella's Iris (which I like but don't love by itself) and SMN's Opoponax (which I love, love, love by itself), resulting in an HdP 1740 or Lorenzo Villoresi's Virginia vibe (i.e., incensy and immortelle-y).

Moustache edt concentre by Rochas.
Probably not what you guys want to read here, but today has been the worst day of the year for wearing fragrance. I have a nasty cold, though fortunately nothing too bad, meaning I can't wear a scent.
Going to take a hot shower before bed and may spritz something light on then, to brighten my mood.
Snarky is as snarky does.

“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
