    Default SotD Tuesday 15 December

    Good morning!

    The temperature has stayed below zero and I have stayed with wonderfully wintery SL Fille en Aiguilles...

    Enjoy your day!

    Crazylibellule and The Poppies ~ Chere Louise. It's quite a nice scent for something inexpensive.
    I love the design and I love that it memorializes Louise Brooks. She was a trendsetter for sure

    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..."

    Coco EDP, smells like Christmas to me.
    “I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

    My body clock is all turned around, thanks to a luxurious if ill-timed nap Monday afternoon. So I am wide awake when I should be abed. Right now I can still smell my Liaisons Dangereuses from Monday, so I guess LD is my SOTD. (But not, perhaps, for long.)

    SMM, the Neil Morris Patchouli Narcisse scent just sounds scrumptious. And how lovely to be the inspiration for a perfume! I went on Neil Morris' site and saw that Chaya was also a muse for one of his scents. I now want to try both perfumes.

    Take care, all.
    Take good care,

    Belated Happy Birthday to Scentsibility!

    Still basking in the glow of my Sunday in the Park with Perfumistas....or something like that.

    Wanted a classic but discontinued masculine this morning.

    Rochas Monsieur Rochas Concentree

    A bit of a disclaimer up front this is not the "pink juice" version of Monsieur Rochas available everywhere and re-formulated, that re-formulated version is not bad but compared to the Concentree it pales.

    In 1969 Guy Robert followed up his release of Monsieur Rochas with a Concentree version almost immediately. I am always curious why a perfumer chooses to do this. Did M. Robert want to work the same notes differently, which he does. Did M. Robert want to make something with a little more heft, which he does. Or did M. Robert want to make a more chypre version of the fougere like version of the original, which he also does. Whatever the motivation the Concentree is one of the finest men's chypres out there.

    The top of Monsieur Rochas Concentree begins with a much more concentrated citrus blast of lemon and bergamot. This is traditional masculine territory and it is a zesty beginning. The heart begins with a mix of the green geranium accord mixed with the clove-like aspect of carnation. This is intense and tilts Monsieur Rochas Concentree firmly into green territory. Cedar joins the mix allowing for a clean woodiness to accentuate the floral pair. The base is the classic chypre mix of oakmoss and musk. M. Robert adds in vetiver and patchouli and that adds depth and longevity to the base. The final phase of this as the spicy green floral gives way to the dusty oakmoss laden chypre aspects is sublime every time I wear this.

    Monsieur Rochas Concentree has average longevity and average sillage, both of which are a touch disappointing in a Concentree level fragrance.

    It looks like Monsieur Rochas Concentree is another sad casualty of the IFRA's need to rid the perfumed world of oakmoss. The unfortunate aspect is all of these amazing creations will soon be memories. Thankfully I still have enough to keep creating some current ones.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    Earlier this year I sort of had to abandon you guys because you all insisted on making me late for work every day, but none of you promised to employ me once I got fired!

    But I had to take some time this morning to say how much I love the Boston contingent of Basenotes.

    It's amazing that they are all so wonderful on so many levels, super smart, and wonderfully warm, and perhaps most important, they all smell so damn good.

    I hope all of you in Boston and out are having a wonderful and fragrant day.

    I'm wearing Miller Harris. Gorgeous, but not long lived!
    There is a singular joy in the experience of receiving perfume by mail. It is one of life's great little pleasures - one that more should have the pleasure of knowing.

    Deb - it's good to see you! The Boston meetup sounds like it was a blast.
    Roberto - you smell HEAVENLY. I wore HR yesterday so that makes us scent twins a day apart.

    In the mood for Douce Amere today, very lovely.

    Last eve I tested Dior Escale a Portofino from a 2.5ml TPC decant. Wow, I must say that I was very impressed. Citrus is not at the top of my favorite notage, but this is really addictive. Love the almond blending in as well. May have to think about putting this on my FB wish list for spring.

    I need to test Epic Woman, just got a sample in this week. Am DYING to try Tribute!

    Have a beautifully fragrant day!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm playing with chocolate too, but I perhaps I should enjoy the party from another room as I'm in clouds and clouds of Angel today - I can almost see a celestial blue tint in the air around me.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Today I've layered Elariia Wisteria over Demeter Lilac-- two inexpensive scents that work pretty well together. (The Lilac is also good alone, but I didn't care for the Wisteria by itself.)

    White Christmas by Saravel

    One of my Ebay, vintage finds. It's one big powdery mess...but it's fun around the holidays and for a short bit during the middle notes it achieves that bread-like iris note I enjoy in L' Heure Bleue by Guerlain.

    I love the font on the bottle.

    I'm wearing YSL Parisienne today. Again. It's been a staple for me lately. I'm so grateful to 30 Roses for sending me this. I find it very wearable and upbeat, and my husband likes it, too, which is a bonus.

    We're gearing up for our annual trek down to Florida for the Christmas holidays. We drive down because we bring our dog. It's a long, boring drive, but we have it down to a science. It's nice to have our own car, too, while we're there. Cannot WAIT to see some sunshine and walk on the beach. In the meantime, it's gray amd chilly here in Virginia, although I'm not could be much worse.

    I hope everyone is well. I know you all smell nice!
