    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..."

    Hi everyone- have a great new day ! keep warm all those is cold climes !

    A very happy birthday to Scentologist !



    The 'new' Mitsouko parfum extrait for me today.
    I am still trying to understand and befriend this new Mitsouko - her personality is much subdued - like she has done with the partying and the glamor ,abit confused and not sure who she wants to be next. I will give her my hand and try to make sense of her confusion.
    ( OK, yes ,that was a load of trollop ! )

    Anyway, I am trying to 'love' this because I rather have some kind of split personality Mitsouko and then none at all .

    Ooooh, Rrrrrroberto (I was rolling my "r" there!) You smell fantastic! In fact, you all smell darn fine!

    Early am spritzed on some Ambrette 9 by Le Labo. After fitness class and shower later I'll be wearing Black Cashmere by Donna Karan!

    Yay for Friday! :bounce:Stay warm!

    Happy Birthday to Scentologist!

    Happy birthday Scentologist!

    Oh lord, Tao, that reminds me! I had better get on with the rest of my cards.
    We are becolded here in Casa Del Birdie (should that be The Bird's Nest, perhaps?) so we smell of Vicks Vapo Rub and nothing else. Poor Small had a horrible fever all night but it seems to have broken now and she is swaddled in blankets on the sofa watching her favourite Studio Ghibli DVDs. Kiki's Delivery Service at the moment and I bet Totoro will put in an appearance later.

    So my SOTD is Vicks and I hope it clears my head in time for Andy Tauer's Scent Apero in Zurich tomorrow! I am SO looking forward to it and desperately hope I'm well enough to go.

    Have a fabby friday; Happy Chanukah for those who celebrate and whoever you are, may your day have as much vibrancy and vim as Maurice Roucel's fabulous moustache.

    Doctor's appointment this morning calls for something great, yet reliable. Had to go for the Vintage No 5...but, apparently I needed an extra lift because after a liberal splashing of the edt, I felt the need to dab the parfum.

    Freezing day this morning.
    Today the Wild Poodles of Someville get their picture taken with Santa.
    Sunday I meet up with many of my fellow boston BNers for Neil Morris' event in Boston.
    Can't wait to see my Boston peeps in person.

    Wanted sandalwood this morning.

    10 Corso Como

    Sometimes perfume is simple. Sometimes the fragrance just does what it is supposed to do. It always acts the same on my skin and it always produces the same response in me. 10 Corso Como, named after Carla Sozzani's Milan clothing boutique, is one of those fragrances for me.

    Olivier Gillotin is the perfumer behind this 1999 release and he uses some very common notes and doesn't really ask them to do anything more than exist. The art here is the balance he brings to 10 Corso Como which makes it so wearable.

    The top of 10 Corso Como begins with a zephyr of sandalwood and incense and that zephyr never stops blowing those notes to my nose. Eventually the breeze shifts slightly and it blows past a rose bush and I get a nice rose note with the sandalwood and incense. Then the best part of 10 Corso Como comes when the oud appears. The slight medicinal quality of agarwood is appropriate counterpoint to the slightly sweet sandalwood and incense. This middle phase of 10 Corso Como is the best part of the development. The finale is a mix of vetiver and musk which add an air of familairity to things at the end.

    10 Corso Como has below average longevity and average sillage on me. This isn't a work day fragrance for me because it doesn't last long enough but it is a great nighttime fragrance because it does last long enough for an evening out.

    10 Corso Como is one of those fragrances I reach for when I'm getting a sandalwood or incense craving and it scratches that olfactory itch for me every time.

    Have a Flagrant Friday everyone.

    Quick stop at today's SoTD, possibly more later.

    Today I am wearing one of my HG scents (thank you, Riannon, for showing me this gorgeous fragrance!!!)

    Profumum Fiore d'Ambra. Simply beautifully done.

    Fiore d'Ambre notes: Ambergris, opium.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Good morning, beautiful people. Health, healing and fitness befall all of you and those you love.

    Did anyone notice David Boreanaz sans clothes on “Bones” last night? Good to know he's kept up his fitness routine since his Buffy and Angel days. Sigh.

    Mysticknot—I share your split-personality feeling about Mitsouko from wearing to wearing and from concentration to concentration and from vintage to modern. Have concluded I prefer the vintage extrait even if it's so old it smells rancid for the first several minutes.
    Chaya—I get tired just thinking about all you do.

    I'm starting the day with the cheerful, citrusy La Rose du Petit Prince.

    Super busy day today.

    Workout, then work, then dinner, then hockey, then swanky office party then (hopefully) bed.

    Dior Addict - since I get complements on it and it lasts through a nuclear explosion. For years, it also served as my "dressy" scent. (Back when Hypnotic Poison was my everyday signature scent).

    Oh yeah - I wasn't mean enough to spritz Dior Addict before my workout. Probably would have suffocated me first

    Roberto - ROWWRRRR!
    Chaya - I wish we had smell-o-vision on our computers. I can't even imagine the heavenly aromas wafting around your place.

    Like SMM, I was craving sandalwood, but it's ETRO Sandalo for me. Lovely airy smooth sandalwood with a certain piquancy up top, drying down into sweeter basenotes.

    Happy Friday, all!

    CdG Rhubarb Sherbet, which has faded away so I'll change to something else after tea.

    The yellow has been removed from my boots, so I'm much happier. I'm still going to find an independent cobbler to fix my beloved exhausted cowgirl boots, I've learned my lesson.
