    Good morning all and greetings to all Australian BN'ers Today is a dull and grey day...I have visitors from South Africa in a couple of weeks. My friend wanted to show his gf snow. ( he's been here before when we were more than friends) I sure hope for their sake that it will be more snow and less ice by then! I hate the icey and wet weather we have now!!! Anyway.Today me and the bf finally get to have our Theater date that was meant to be earlier. He got a prolapse in his back,so we had to postpone it. Looking forward to it Sotd is a real Diva- Fracas.

    Tried four new to me fragrances -- F. Malle Dans Tes Bras, Givenchy Ange Ou Demon, Penhaligon's Amaranthine and Lalique Flora Bella -- and every single one is not meant for wearing on this skin. Sigh. Will hop into the bathtub shortly and scrub. Thoroughly.

    If it ain't broken, fix it till it is.

    Probably Balmain de Balmain again.

    Feeling in a lavender mood this morning.

    Tauer Perfumes Reverie au Jardin

    Andy Tauer is perhaps the most successful independent perfumer out there at the moment. One of the reasons is his ability to take a note we think we know well and re-interpret it in a new and fresh way. One of the best examples of Mr. Tauer’s gift at doing this is his 2007 release Reverie au Jardin; in which lavender gets this treatment.

    Lavender is one of the most utilitarian of fragrance notes, finding its way into everything from laundry detergent to air freshener. Therefore when a perfumer assays lavender as the central note of a new fragrance there has to be a little trepidation for fear the list of dreaded adjectives beginning with “soapy” will be trotted out to describe this new scent. What Mr. Tauer does in Reverie au Jardin is to use lavender in its wild form buttressed with all of the notes of Mr. Tauer’s local alpine milieu and thus keep this lavender scent from ever being confused with anything as mundane as fabric softener.

    The top of Reverie au Jardin is a bracing jolt of lavender and this is lavender at the intersection of floral and herbal. Much like I have encountered lavender when I have been hiking. It is this dual nature of lavender that makes it such an interesting note as by turns it can be intensely floral and then intensely green and in Reverie au Jardin lavender shows both of these facets off. The reason this works is Mr. Tauer chooses as lavender’s companions, in the early stages, galbanum and fir balm. These have the effect of softening the herbal side of things and accentuating the floral side. According to the note list there is a rose note also in the top, but the only floral I get is lavender. The heart begins with a rich orris combining with the lavender. Orris in all of its woody floral glory really accentuates the herbal nature of the lavender and they perform a divine olfactory pas de deux. The woodiness of the orris leads into a full on woody base of cedar, sandalwood and vetiver with a dollop of oakmoss thrown in for good measure.

    Reverie au Jardin has excellent longevity and above average sillage on me.

    Reverie au Jardin translates to “daydream in a garden” but this feels more aptly named “meditation on an Alpine meadow”. Mr. Tauer has surely scaled the Alpine heights of audacious perfumery.

    Have a Trippy Tuesday everyone.

    Happy Aussie Day to our Oz-manians!!

    Started with a roll-on of Montale's Chypre Vanille (thanks *Dora*!!) only to discover it is not for me. After a sour opening the dry vanilla and barely-there chypre just didn't mate well. Like Wolfie says: "Not on this skin." Into the "Share" bag!!

    From the "Sample" bag dredged up Bond #9's West Side....(thanks Sloan_8013!!) another story totally!! Roses, ylang ylang and my darling peonies, anchored in sandalwood, amber, vanilla and musk. Joyful!

    Aussie Aussie Aussie oui oui oui!!!! I celebrated Australian day last evening while watching the Australian Open tennis tournament! The planes flying over the stadium were very impressive, although I doubt the tennis players thought so Hope all of you had a wonderful long weekend and celebration down under!

    I'm wearing SL Douce Amere today, warm and rich feeling, but never cloying or too sweet. Perfectly balanced, and perfectly named.

    Happy Australia Day to all our Aussie friends on Basenotes!

    I'm wearing FM Le Parfum de Therese this morning, but I'm just not feeling it. SMM's post has me craving simple sunny lavender, so I may have a nice bath with Yardley's. Gosh, I hope spring comes early this year.

    The cold weather came back to Miami again today - so this gets pulled back out from the back of the closet. Smells extra nice in cool, crisp weather - lightly applied.

    Happy Australia Day!
