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..."

Happy Birthday Mysticknot! Hope its a right smelly 21st!
For this middle of my last full work week of the year I thought I'd go for something light.
Creed Acqua Fiorentina
There are many times when I wear the best of fragrances from Creed that I am impressed with what they do with just a few notes. One of the latest successes in that area, for me, is the 2009 release Acqua Fiorentina. According to the note list this should be a fruity floral but on my skin it is a citrus plum wood fest and I never catch even a whiff of either of the listed floral notes of rose and carnation.
Instead Acqua Fiorentina starts with a tart lemon note which is paired with an equally bright plum note. This mix of sweet and sour is really well done. The plum is lush and juicy while the lemon is austere and sparkling. From here the clean woodiness of cedar comes into play and it is the appropriate counter point for the fruit of the top. The base is a warm and creamy sandalwood and that transition also works nicely.
Acqua Fiorentina has average longevity and modest sillage both of which are surprising coming from Creed.
I have to say from a juice that is pink to a simple but compelling development I am surprised at how good Acqua Fiorentina is. It's probably a good lesson to not judge a juice by its color.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.

Good morning all and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the birthdaygirl,MYSTICKNOT!!! Slept too long again today....It seems almost impossible to get up at a reasonable time of the day (unless I have to) these days! Sotd is Rochas Femme.
Happiest Birthday Wishes to MYSTICKNOT! Basenotes is better for your being here!
SMM, so glad you decided to wear/write about that new Creed today. It's been on my mind lately...now I've got to give it a test run for myself.
Today still feels like a touchy/feely/hugging sort of day...so allow me to wrap my arms around those in need. Big squishy group hug to some of the sweetest people around! You gals & guys are the tops!
Chergui by Lutens today ~ very huggable

HAPPY BIRTHDAYS, you honeygirls !!!!!!!!!!!!
Matthewfoo- I adore your sotd; so does Terry, BTW ;-)
Last night, I wore L'Instant Homme w/ Ambre Russe- don't ask.
Thrilling, to say the least.
Between THAT, and big ole Mme. Moon, no sleepee here, LOL.
I just HOWLED.
'Nuff said ;-)
Sending loving energy to you dear folk.
May 2010 bring us relief.
Ain't no one about to complain-
So I'm gonna spray myself STOOPID with Ambre Russe-
And 'channel' all you amber-lovin' angels ;-)
You KNOW who you are...
Go well, my blossoms.
May our day be gentle ..
Fairmont Princess Hotel
...in a 4' tall huge old bed with feather pillows and comfy down and a splendid little balcony peopled (?) by plump little yellow breasted birds and dined on EXcellent food, courtesy of the hotel. I had been invited to speak at the Bermuda AA Convention and since we are more or less expected to schmooze I didn't do much sightseeing.
Just as well.
I had lived there 70 (SEVENTY!!??) years ago as a ten year old. When the street noises were nothing but the clip clop of the carriage horses' hooves and the ting ting of bicycle bells. Now there's buzzy scooters and honking horns and construction everywhere and big and tall concrete buildings and sic transit....etc.
BUT the Lili Perfumery is still in bidness and I bought their Fragrance Library to try out everything new (they used to just do Easter Lily). Today it's...
Mandarin and bigarade with lily underneath. Vanilla is mentioned but I'm not getting any...more melon-y and quite aquatic.
And to Mysticknot (one of the best "appelations online" EVER!) HAPPIEST OF B-DAYS!!!

Hello everyone, and plenty of happy birthday wishes to mysticknot and Outlandish!
I'm feeling luxurious and chic in vintage Cabochard today. It's surprising, but my fiance really likes this one - he likes to put on his best (ha!) French accent and say it in a dramatic stage whisper - Cabochaaard!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MYSTICKNOT!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OUTLANDISH!!
Best wishes to you both on your birthdays...
I'm wearing a teeny bit of original Obsession for women today.
I hope everyone is having a good day.
Happy Birthday to Outlandish! Hope your day is full of fragrance and other goodies!
