    I'm getting off my nightshift in a minute,
    I'm wearing Hypnotic Poison now.

    When I wake up in a couple of hours,
    I think I'm gonna flash me some
    Dior Homme Intense ... I feel naughty today!

    I fell in love with a sample of Visa last night!
    A dear friend on Basenotes sent me some samples and this was
    the one that stood out for me. I am presuming it is the re-orchestrated
    version by Guichard (not the original by Piquet) although I may be wrong.
    Anyway, whoever created this gem, it is a winner in my book - soft, warm,
    peachy suede wrapped up in what I think may be helichrysum, patchouli and
    vanilla. I am sure there are a host of other notes in there, but the whole is
    very smooth and well blended. All in all a very comforting, sensuous and totally
    addictive scent. Thank you to my perfume fairy.

    Day four of the seven days of 5 star fragrances as rated by ME

    Ahhhhhh, Alahine. I've been looking forward to wearing this one. In fact, I took it for a trial run again last night.

    Alahine by Teo Cabanel.
    Notes:
    bergamot, lavender, ylang-ylang
    Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose, jasmin, orange blossom
    iris, rock rose, patchouli, benzoin, vanilla, musk

    You pretty much know what you are going to get by looking at the traditional pyramid of notes. And you won't be surprised. BUT, right from the first spray, comes it's little secret. This is a beauty - so well blended and crafted. It whispers class, it surrounds you in classic perfume feeling with a nod towards modern sense. It doesn't feel old, yet it feels timeless.

    The bright citris opening is smooth as silk. I can smell the lavender a bit, but it is smoothed out and blended until it is just a cooling breeze. The florals then come out, and I can smell rose, but it is rose surrounded and softened by their fellow notes. The amber is creeping in, softly, but possibly the florals are keeping the sweetness tamped down. Never does this fragrance go sweet, but never, ever is it harsh in any way. Each note blended to perfection. It then drifts off into it's closing, and you realise you have just experienced something special.

    5 stars from me for the classic feel, beautiful structure and flawless execution. This smells beautiful.

    Cello, you are so right! The bottle of Mauboussin is a pyramid with a rounded foundation, you can twist it and it would spin. It is also coated in some sort of emulsion resembling a rainbow -- or the gasoline spot on the ground after the rain -- random concentric lines. I also forgot to add that I have had a mini, a 30ml, a 50ml and a 100ml bottles, all are winnahs in my book. For travel purposes the in-built spraying mechanism locks up (with a twist) and nothing sprays if you do not want it to.

    Another thing I forgot -- two days ago on the 22nd, it was Ubu's 4 year BN anniversary, you are a veteran now!

    Hello everyone!

    Day 3 of cello's 5-Star Fragrance Party, and I'm in the classic chypre-supreme from 1975, the extraordinary Halston, vintage perfume.




    Top notes - mint, green leaves, peach and bergamot
    Middle notes - carnation, iris, jasmine, marigold, ylang-ylang, rose
    Base notes - sandalwood, cedar, amber, patchouli, musk, oakmoss, vetiver, incense



    cello - I just added Alahine to my test list, and it's a good thing I don't go for blind buys very often because your beautiful description just about did me in!

    3xasif - It's good to see you back around! I hope things are calming down a bit for you. You smell fantastic, of course.

    Twolf - I hope you're feeling better! That Mauboussin should help fix whatever's ailing you...!


    Y'all have a great day!

    I just noticed that it's Jasper's birthday - Happy Birthday, Jasper!

    Caron - Infini

    A most glorious aldehyde extrait.
    Created in 1912 by Ernest Daltroff in collaboration with Gerad Lefort.
    A soft rich floral aldehyde parfum with notes of jasmine, jonquil, lily of the valley, tuberose and sandalwood.
    The story is that it took 15 years to perfect the fragrance.

    Joining in the happy birthday wishes for Jasper.

    I gave a bit of a plug to the ladies side of the SotD threads in my article this week, I'm curious to see if there will be any uptick in participation over here.

    Today was one of those where the frag choice was dictated by urge, and I was really feeling like Juicy Couture Dirty English, and it was not an unhappy choice.

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Today I'm testing a scent we made together. Lime, Geranium, Rosewood, and Atlas Cedar. Lovely stuff, but a bit too much like the generic smell in cleaning solutions. We'll have to work on that.
