    Default SotD Wednesday 17th of February

    Morning all, Happy Ash Wednesday (it is Ash Wednesday right?) I'm wearing Black Orchid by the rather dashing Mr Tom Ford! Have a great day all.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Detchema by Revillon, and if my nose is right, the one from before 1994 when it got butchered up and relieved of all its heavy goodness. Thanks to a huge package from a wonderful Basenoter, I was reminded to go back to my Wardrobe section and work with all Revillons I have ever owned or tried and they are numerous.

    Have a nice day, bunch!

    Veuve, we mourn your departure and will celebrate your return. Take gentle care of yourself.
    Oooo, Knit at Nite, maybe you'll get lucky and hit the “giddy” wall.

    I'm wearing a sample of Diptyque L’eau de Tarocco from Archmemory .
    The topnotes are simply a BIG GRIN—so precisely the scent produced from plunging a thumbnail into an orange. Soon thereafter, though, that scent starts playing peek-a-boo with some really odd, hard-to-describe notes. The imagery I get is that I've walked toward the storage and receiving area at the back of a mall store—new packing materials and newly manufactured products? Now that's weird.

    Officially, the notes are orange, grapefruit, saffron, cinnamon, rose, ginger, cedar, incense, musk.

    Lest you write off Tarocco, I do have one selling point: Yesterday I sprayed this on paper and enjoyed hours and hours of the fresh, sweet citrus notes wafting across my desk. Yep, now that's a smilemaker.

    Veuve, best wishes for a speedy resolution of your troubles. Hope to see you back here soon!

    Yesterday I sampled Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Eau de Naphe, and was not particularly impressed one way or the other. Today I'm sampling another one of Ankica's creations, which I've dubbed "Ancika No. 5", and liking it so far. It starts out bright and airy, and immediately segues to a light but strong floral, not too sweet, slightly spicy - kind of a bubble gum smell with no individually identifiable notes. It has an odd peppery feel to it that is sort of like the sensation of menthol or hot chili, but without the smell. I like the strong top notes. The drydown is a muted version of the initial scent.

    Dear Veuve, I hope you get everything sorted out as soon as possible. You will be missed. xoxo

    Thanks to a divine perfume friend, I have been wearing Mona di Orio Oiro today. If I am not mistaken "oiro" is the Portuguese for "gold", and this fragrance does have a mellow warm shimmer to it, especially up top. It opens with a full, zingy orange and spices, moves into indolic florals, then simmers down into a tender, heliotrope-prominent drydown.

    Best to all!
