    Thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes the other day, I'm on the mend so they must be working!

    I feel as though my motor skills have left me since I got sick as I managed to trip and fall down two steps in my back yard yesterday (and drop my digi cam onto the concrete - ouch!) and then I got hit by a revolving door today...I've turned into a clutz overnight

    So I wanted to wear something that made me feel very glamorous today, in the hope it might inspire me to stop falling over! DK Gold was just the trick, I really do love the perfume it's very graceful and elegant on me, yet still appropriate for work.

    I've doused myself in a new acquisition: Ava Luxe's Tao. This is a sandalwood fragrance that I was unsure about from some of the reviews here but I took a punt on a 5ml bottle - heck, at Serena's prices, it's not such a massive risk, is it? And - as so often with her fragrances - it's a beauty! This girl has a way with sandalwood.

    Tao is described as a lighter, airier, even aquatic sandalwood. Well that freaked me out straight away! Aquatic? Yuckola! However, I wouldn't say this was remotely aquatic, but because it's slightly fresh and certainly airy, I can see why the description was used. It's hard to say 'fresh' about a fragrance without an assumption of greenness or citrus, which this has none of.

    It's great. Really 'go anywhere', well-balanced and a pleasure to wear.

    Oh, I also bought a little bottle of Ava Luxe's Mousse de Chine which is oakmossy and fabulous. I'm tempted to upscale to a bigger bottle before the IFRA smacks all of us. And for those of you who are missing the 'Moss (yup, you Mysticknot!), it could be bliss in a bottle.

    I hope your studies go well, Ines. Boo! to the sucky person who didn't want to pull their weight.

    I am looking forward to picking up Small from school in 20 mins as this is the dreaded Gym Class Morning, which she fears terribly and cries and begs not to have to go to from the moment she opens her eyes. Poor little love, I feel so bad for her and try to support her and explain that going and doing it even though it scares her will help her be able to deal with horrible things she doesn't want to do in the future. But it's so hard to be brave and tough it out when you're 5 years old. But when she gets home for lunch she's done it for the week and got it over with, bless her heart. I can't wait to move her to her new school in January.

    Wishing you all a happy Tuesday.

    Yikes, wordie, just what I needed! Ava Luxe is back on my radar now that I got my brand-spanking-second-hand bottle of no. 23 the other day. Tao sounds delish. Can you tell me how "oily" the oil is? Comparable to Possets/BPAL texture or different? I'm a bit hesitant since i really don't like those two companies' products due to their texture only.

    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.

    One last real day of work before a nice long stretch of days off and I am looking forward to some down time.

    Re-trying a scent I think I should like more.

    Bois 1920 Sanadalo e The

    What to do with the scent that doesn't do what you think it should do. I like the House, as Real Patchouly from Bois 1920 is a beautiful meditation on patchouli. Enzo Galardi has shown a deft hand using a few notes to create subtle interactions as in Sushi Imperiale. So when faced with the 2005 release Sandalo e The I think "yum sandalwood and tea should be great". Instead I am sadly underwhelmed. The quality ingredients are there, the perfumer is there; the sum of the parts just never add up to a coherent whole for me.

    The top of Sandalo e The begins with a floral accord of rose and jasmine along with a slight herbal accord. This only lasts a minute before the tea and sandalwood come into the mix. This opening phase is the best part of Sandalo e The and if it somehow could have remained this balanced mix of woody rose and tea I would have loved it. Instead the sandalwood gets out of balance and really takes over everything with the tea attempting to try and get back into the game from time to time. This makes the drydown almost annoying as I want to enjoy both of the titutlar notes and I really am only getting the sandalo at this point. If I want a great sandalwood drydown I'll turn to Burberry London for Men for a great example of how to do that.

    Sandalo e The has excellent longevity and sillage.

    I really like the idea of sandalwood and tea as complementary notes that can carry a fragrance. Unfortunately Sandalo e The is not the fragrance I'm looking for.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    I'm firmly in the Hebe camp here when it comes to impromptu bursts of athleticism.

    That said, my SOTD is courtesy of Agent Ubu (Armani Prive Eclat de Jasmin), which I have now layered with Rose Alexandrie, so I am hoping every whiff will make me fitter by some kind of (very) remote controlled processs of osmosis.

    Thanks to all who expressed concern about my early morning trials of Neotrantic Fragrances, which I have since learnt has no hyphen and is in fact a Swedish brand. Which goes a long way towards explaining why such an esoteric line would fetch up in a duty free area the size of a Portaloo, cheek by jowl with the Lacostes and the Escadas.

    I was so distressed by my pre-flight sampling experience that I transposed the name of one of them: it is Manic Love (Women) - there is apparently also a men's version - God help all us brave men and women who try them...

    Oh, poor little Small! I hated gym as a young one, hated it even more in high school, and continued to hate the required year of gym in college. I cut up my gym suit when the 14-year ordeal was over. Highlights, or rather lowlights, of my sordid gym career: in 7th grade, my low gym mark kept me off the honor roll. In my first year of college, I nearly failed for my attendance record (to be perfectly fair, I took all my allowed sickness days, and then I actually got sick--freshman mono). Now the strange thing is: it turns out that what I hated was team sports. I did distance-swimming, jogged for over a decade, and currently do Pilates and regularly go to the gym. So, little Small, there are wonderful ways to "do gym."

    Today I am wearing Burnt Amber.

    Today I'm trying out Serge Lutens Fille En Aiguilles. It's a bit short lived on me so I missed out the middle but it starts with improbably clean hippies frolicking in an evergreen forest then dries down to... fenugreek and home grown cucumbers?! I'm not at all getting the conventional candy/fruits I expected. Still, cucumber is a fruit.

    Ubu - good luck on your 1000 situp challenge. At least they are not making you GHD situps

    BTW - GHD sit ups = feet on one of those back extension racks, face the ceiling and do situps. You will either wind up with a stupid crazy strong core or a crazy stupid sore back

    Wordie - Best of luck to Small. The gym scares me too. Particularly the "gym studs" who can shoulder-press their body weight (or more), crank out 20 strict pullups in a row and run sub 5 min miles repeatedly over the course of 1 session. Oh BTW, did I mention that these are the GIRLS?!?

    I hope Small winds up enjoying herself or finding a physical activity she likes to do.

    Ines - good luck with the group project. I always HATED those things for just the reasons you mentioned. It's been taking me YEARS to get over the trauma and learn to play nice with others again. Still not quite over it....

    1000 situps? Huh. How intriguing. In a purely hypothetical way, of course, because THERE IS NO FLIPPIN WAY THAT'S HAPPENING HERE.

    Wordbird, I totally agree with your description of Tao, I got some myself as part of my order of Opopnax Intense (GO BUY SOME, EVERYONE!) and No23. It is definitely a woody aquatic...I'm reminded of my beloved old Body Shop Winter Dew oil. I'm saving my Tao for warm weather, it's a nice alternative for those of us who might like "fresh" so long as it doesn't include that bright, almost acidic note that most aquatics tend to carry. Tao is not so much citrus and flowers as it is a waterfall in the rainforest....

    And, to answer your question on the oils, VeuveAmiot, the Body Shop oils from the early 1990s are my only reference, and I'd say the consistency is very similar to those. I like the oils because you can dab them VERY sparingly and still get excellent longevity...I slept in the No 23 last night and still catch a whiff here and there. Oils are marvellous if you like extrais and longevity...kind of close to the skin and long lasting, responding well to the warmth of your skin. They are probably less fun for those who like to spritz with abandon and who prefer sillage to longevity.

    Lovethescents - I bought Tiare on a blind buy, happily I love it. Kinda of a lighter Cristalle, or perhaps EL Jasmine white moss. If you love those, you'll be pleased, I'm sure.

    Chaya - Leonard Cohen is one of the greats of my life. Fell in love with "Suzanne", learned many of his songs when I played guitar, esp in my HS years. A true icon. Makes me remember all the old "folkies": Judy Collins, Odetta, Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary. Geez, I could go on and on....

    Hi, everyone! Dark and dreary here, with rain in the forecast for the next four days. Ugh.
    Chaya, hope B feels better soon. How are you today? xoxo

    Thanks to a darling perfume friend, I am wearing Anarchy, LLP's version of Donna Karan Chaos. It's been years since I sampled Chaos so I can't accurately say how the two compare. However I recently tried the Chaos relaunch and IMO Anarchy compares very favorably, longer lasting and with more oomph to it. The Chaos reissue was lighter and "thinner", somehow. Anarchy is beautiful, dry woods and spice with a clear incense note. Very calming and grounding.

    Take care, everyone!

    Hee! I'm a genius!

    It's cold and damp here, so I really needed a spicy bit of warmth for the day....toyed with clovy Serge Noir, but couldn't commit to the patch. Coco edt amost won me over, and certainly would have satisfied. But, I felt in my bones that today is a day to dig deep in the decant collection, give something a spin that I haven't worn in a while.

    Tabac Blond Parfum (current formulation)



    What's that, you say? Tabac Blond is not a spice scent, it's a leather scent? Yeah, once upon a time, this was true. But now it opens with a blast of sweet cloves so off from the original that I have been complaining like a harpy for a looooong time. But, I think I've come to a breakthrough, here. While it is a wretched approximation of the original leather scent called "Tabac Blond," as a new sweet, spicy scent, it's not half bad. So, in the lunatic asylum that is my mind, new Tabac Blond is NOT A REFORMULATION. It's a flanker. Are you listening, Maison de Caron? Stop labelling this stuff Tabac Blond. Call it "Tabac Blond Brunch" or "Patisserie" or some such. Oh, and go back to making the original stuff, while you're at it. Thanks.

    Quick in and out. Sorry. Decided to tackle overdue portfolio and website updates, which are pretty much all-consuming. No frag yesters. Today: Annayake Miyako. Fairly good stuff for a streak of gray weather. Hugs all around.

    Tom Ford's Velvet Gardenia today. Wanted a big, creamy floral to counteract the cold, damp weather and this does the trick everytime. Thankfully I don't get blue cheese, just a hint of earthiness.

    Hello everyone :-)
    I'm in Miss Dior Chérie today. Too "small" for me, I think, but sweet and nice enough.

    Sad morning . Needed a comfort scent today. For me, that's Andy Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain. I hope I'm not creating a poor association, but it just feels so serene...



    I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far.

    The Party in Manhattan
    A near dead-ringer for Djedi. There is just a bit more green here and less civit.
    Try this for a glorious throwback to old-style perfumery.


    The Party in Manhattan Notes;
    Bergamot, tangerine, clary sage, carnation, carrot, jasmine, May rose, ylang ylang, iris, vetiver, patchouli, oakmoss, gray amber

    ah, Barbie, Ken and Midge...all those little tiny plastic shoes, and the elbow length evening gloves, sigh...

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Right now I am smelling like one of my all-time favorites, LB Venezia. Made a small perfume spray from my duped oil for someone and managed (oops!) to get some on me Yum yum yum.

    Hugs to those in need.

    Good day lovelies,

    sending many healing thoughts too all the sickies and the standart hugs to everyone else.
    Good luck, Ine on your project!

    SotD: Serge Lutens Daim Blonde - so lovely and soft. I didn't get much leather at all (no, no suede either), only soft fruity sweetness (not too much though).
    SotE: CdG Ouarzazate - peppery, minty, woody incense. Very refreshing for an incense scent.
    Both kindly provided by lovethescents.

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Hello all - today will try to see if there's some way to recover those lost files on my desktop at work (working from my older PC now). They call it "Windows", but really they should call it "Doorstop". Ha!

    SOTD: Cruel Gardenia

    Like it a lot, but maybe not worth the $$$ for the FB...will probably just use up my decant and then move on...

    Hugs to all!
