    Since I posted so late to the Tuesday SotD, I will post ahead of time to the Wednesday thread: I plan to wear Jolie Madame.

    Chaya, I was very sorry to read just now about the loss of your pet. I hope you are doing okay.

    Sending good vibes to (((Chaya, 30 Roses, RHM, Kewart))), and anyone else who needs 'em. Have a good Wednesday, and take care, all.

    Jil Sander Sun, as yesterday & the day before.
    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.

    Sending hugs to all those in need of a good cuddle (especially, 30 Roses, Kewart, Chaya and RHM).

    I spritzed some CdG Kyoto (again). I'm teaching a class (attitudes and attitude change) starting today and apparently more masculine perfume makes you seem more competent (regardless of your gender). Not that Kyoto is overly masculine but it's not exactly girly girly either. And though that study was not exactly the most convincing one I've ever read I thought it couldn't hurt to follow their advide. You know, since I love Kyoto anyway...

    Thanks to all for the signs of spring. Here we are at 9 F, but during the daytime it is nice -- at 38 F, with plenty of snow still. Here is a Japanese virtual garden, just click on the black background as many times as you would like to.

    Positive waves towards our trio, Chaya, 30Roses, and Kewart who are dealing with their recent losses.
    Happy waves to RHM who I'm sure is releived to have lost her kidney stone.

    Continuing my week of small perfumers.

    Soivohle Underworld

    Vetiver is one of the most versatile notes for a perfumer to use and that accounts for it showing up so much within the field. What is interesting is when a perfumer can take vetiver and twist it into something different and give it a fresh new perspective. That is exactly what Liz Zorn did in Underworld her 2008 release for her House, Soivohle.

    If I ask someone to describe vetiver most will conjure up a grassy feeling, maybe a fresh note but it is usually a note that is used in fragrances that are thought of as warm-weather fragrances, although that is an over generalization to be sure. Ms. Zorn has taken vetiver and somehow made it a scent that feels much more powerful and something I wouldn’t consider wearing on a hot summer day. The only vetiver I’ve encountered recently that had a similar effect on me was Les Nez Turtle Vetiver Exercise No. 1. Underworld doesn’t smell similar but both perfumers have taken vetiver and pushed it to the upper limits of its intensity.

    The top of Underworld is a mix of vetiver and balsam woods. This creates an accord that is much like walking through the woods early in the spring. You can smell the wood on the warm breeze but there is a heady smell of the leaves that have been trapped under the snow all winter. The opening has an earthy moist feeling to it that feels like that early spring walk in the woods. The vetiver and woods stay firmly at the center of Underworld and over time a bit of full-blooded jasmine adds an indolic flair to the proceedings before a raw unrefined leather appears and takes this to a whole different intensity. The leather in conjunction with the vetiver and balsamic woods create a strong finish to what was already a memorable fragrance.

    Underworld has excellent longevity and modest sillage. This seems to be a trademark of the Soivohle fragrances I’ve tried. For a natural fragrance these perfumes have a very good longevity but they all stay close to the skin.

    Underworld is perfumery for the colognoisseur. Ms. Zorn is not making fragrances for the lowest common denominator. Her compositions challenge the nose and reward the time spent with them in finding nuance in every sniff. These are not going to be for every person as they can be seen as challenging and they are intense. For those of you who are looking to try something totally different and creative point your way towards Ms. Zorn and Soivohle.

    Have a Worthy Wednesday everyone.

    Still thinking of you, 30 Roses and Chaya .... hugs from over here in the UK.

    Am slightly embarrassed to say that I am wearing Penhaligon's Naughty today. It's a completely preposterous name for a pretty decent -- and incredibly cheap -- scent. It's leathery, but with more flowers and sweetness than I'd ordinarily favour. Rather like a light Azuree, in fact. It's a cologne but lasts all day and packs quite a punch. Why they gave it this ridiculous name escapes me.

    Thank you all for your support after Mum died. I am
    getting stronger every day and have come to terms with my loss,
    now that it is not so raw.

    I am wearing a combination of "O" de Lancome, AA Mandarine Basilic

    They meld quite well together actually.

    Hi you guys.....
    I'm here, feel like *&!# but it's because of the anesthesia & pain meds. Nausea is so not my friend.
    My doc is not convinced this puppy is completely gone. I did get to see the big honking thing on x-ray though. The tech was so excited, "It's my first big one!"
    It's progress I say & that's good.

    I smelled wonderful. Didn't notice any scent on the staff in this hospital, unlike the one on the 23/24th.

    Today I'm sticking with lighter scents & DSH's Sunny Yellow seems best.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Congratulations, RHM!!! Success! Those drugs can make you feel gross, that's true. Go for the Gravol or some other anti nausea and try to drink lots of fresh juices: they'll help clear the drugs from your system and give you energy too. I'm so happy for you! And how wonderful that you smell so lovely:-)

    Going to a Butterflies Fly Free exhibit at the Botanical Gardens with 'the boy'---our little 2 year old. Am leaning towards AG 's Le Chevrefeuille....I hope the butterflies like it!

    Chaya - oh no! Sorry to hear about your pet. It sounds like you and your family had 8 wonderful years together.

    Kewart - I've been away - so just heard. Hugs to you and my sincere condolences to you and your family over the loss of your mother.

    RHM - hope you feel better soon. The creepy crud is going around my office and gym too. Managed to avoid it so far. Take care of yourself!

    ---------------------------------------------

    In solidarity with SMM for small perfumers week. If you couldn't tell - I'm pretty fixated on Possets right now.

    Fabienne's scents are oil-based and tend not to evolve very much. When I am in the mood for a comfort scent that behaves predictably on my skin - I reach for her vials - particularly her Silver series. Over the past few months, I've been finding I've been reaching for them more and more.

    Maybe it's a bit of perfume burnout (hence the silence recently)
    Maybe it's not having the bandwidth to think about how a scent "evolves"
    Maybe it's the need for predictability of wear.
    Maybe it's the need to feel confident that I smell "good" and that I won't set off other's "scent allergies"

    Hugs to Chaya. I fully understand. I am typing this with the last of my bevvy of Himalayas, my 16 year old Blue Himmie Hobbes, curled up and purring contentedly in my lap. His brother passed a month ago and Hobbes still calls and looks around for him every morning before dawn. He sleeps much more these days. We don't have them with us forever--16 years is an incredible gift of time for a Himmie--and when they do go they take a piece of our heart with them.

    Twolfie, regarding signs of spring, I heard birdsong very early this morning. And today I noticed that my Bradford pear trees are all covered with buds. They don't bear fruit, but in a couple of weeks they'll be covered with tiny white blossoms, giving way to glossy green leaves. My heart lifted at the sight and the sound, let me tell you.

    Krigler Lovely Patchouli. I think I have enough left for one more wearing, two if I'm cautious.

    Best to all!
