    Fantastic hibiscus note !!!!!
    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.

    Happy belated birthday to the weekend birthdays of Ineespenes, odysseusm, and Mr. RHM!

    I hope all is going as well as it can for Kewart and her family.

    Needed a trip to an olfactory rain forest when suroounded by all this snow.

    L’Artisan Fleur de Liane

    Bertrand Duchaufour is one of my favorite perfumers especially when he is working his magic with incense-centric scents. When I saw the note list for the 2008 release for L’Artisan, Fleur de Liane I didn’t see a hint of incense in there. What I saw was a lot of floral and woody notes. This ties in with M. Duchaufour’s inspiration which is said to be a Panamanian rain forest.

    This was M. Duchaufour’s second stab at an aquatic floral; the first was Magnolia Romana for Eau D’Italie. That fragrance never came together completely for me and after wearing Fleur de Liane, Magnolia Romana feels like the out-of-town tryout for a Broadway play; Fleur de Liane is opening night.

    The top of Fleur de Liane starts with a strongly ozonic accord over melon. The other fragrance which started with a similar accord was Jean-Claude Ellena’s Un Jardin Apres La Mousson. What I find interesting is in M. Ellena’s composition I found the melon distracting and off-putting. In Fleur de Liane it feels just right and that’s despite persisting much longer than in Un Jardin Apres La Mousson. I think it is because M. Duchaufour keeps the melon softer and less pronounced. The heart of Fleur de Liane is also soft as a mix of tuberose and magnolia take the lead. Here M. Duchaufour uses the woody quality of magnolia much more assuredly than in Magnolia Romana. This then leads to the guaiac and cedar in the base quite seamlessly. There is some vetiver and patchouli around but the base stays very woody on my skin.

    Fleur de Liane has average longevity and average sillage on me.

    While I still look forward to anything M. Duchaufour wants to do with incense, Fleur de Liane has me also looking forward to his next iteration of an aquatic floral by him.


    Have a Tubular Tuesday everyone.

    Oh!!! Just bought it!!!!

    Today, Michael Kors Sheer EdP.

    This is NOT sheer!!!! Monster tuberose it is... I can't imagine what the EdP might be... lol



    • Top notes: Creamy florals meet exotic spices. The mix of dewy freesia and Moroccan incense conjures up images of Hawaii, St. Barth's, and Marrakech.
    • Middle notes: Tuberose, blue orris, white wings peony, and arum lilies carries you to New York, London, and Beverly Hills.
    • Bottom notes: Cashmere woods, musk, and vetiver, notes which bring to life the glamorous nightlife of Palm Beach and St. Tropez.

    Another super-foggy morning. We've had several days of this - you would think we were coastal or something.

    Loving La Perla this morning, in the mood for a nice chypre. I wore Timbuktu to bed last night - I must say that I am developing a true love with it as time goes on.
    I am a bit proud of myself for keeping up with my wears for the month on my logon sheet. It amazes me how simple it really is to keep track. Now maybe I'll start updating my BN drobe....

    Still working out the kinks in the new computer system here at work. Hopefully today will go a bit smoother than yesterday.

    Hello everybody!

    I'm in one of my very favorite 80s-glam chypres - K de Krizia. Smooth, chic and super-mossy. Gorgeous.

    Top notes - aldehydes, peach, hyacinth, neroli and bergamot
    Middle notes - carnation, orange blossom, orchid, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose and narcissus
    Base notes - leather, sandalwood, amber, musk, civet, oak moss, vanilla, vetiver and styrax

    Fortunately it's still available, but does anyone how the current formula measures up to the original?

    Twinkies, yay! Laundry, boo! I have to go supermarket shopping for "big" items (paper goods, etc.)...yuckeroo. I'd rather do laundry. J. et C. is great on a chilly morning, warm yet uplifting.
