    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Ooo, ooo, since I'm still up I'm going to post what my SOTD for Friday most likely will be, then I won't be the thread killer who posts last, lol.

    I am thinking of either JHAG Midnight Oud or JHAG Lady Vengeance. Or maybe Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDP. Or maybe my newly arrived Ungaro Diva parfum! Or maybe I shouldn't post yet since I haven't made up my mind. Anyone want to choose for me? ;-j

    Back to being the thread killer, I guess, lol.

    Morning all,
    thanks for all the well wishes yesterday. Rheumatism is a crappy thing to live with, but you just have to make the best of your situation. It's worse now when the weather has been cold, I feel really old and worn despite being 36.

    Coughing my lungs out today, stuffed nose to the point that my sense of smell is compromised.

    Still, up and about and wearing the underrated classic White Linen.

    NeedCoffee, welcome and go with Ungaro. You said it is your new name and new life, please stay this time!

    Surprisingly, nothing hurts this morning on me, a very unusual and slightly disturbing sensation? Or, another sign of spring?

    Hugs to everyone who would take them.

    Finishing the week of small perfumers with a new one.

    Costamor Sugarwood

    I grew up in South Florida and spent a lot of time traveling throughout the Caribbean. For those of you who have visited any of those islands the one consistent crop that grows on, almost all, of them is sugar cane. If you go on a tour of any of these islands it is almost inevitable that you will be taken to a sugar plantation and handed a stalk of sugar cane to suck on. If you’ve ever had that experience you’ve smelled the unique smell of green and sweet that natural sugar cane produces, it is a singular sensation.

    In 2009 Elizabeth Wright founded Costamor mainly to produce perfumes that capture the smells of her childhood trips to Costa Rica. One of the first offerings from Costamor is Sugarwood. For Sugarwood she wanted a fragrance that captured that raw sugar cane experience in olfactory form. In many ways I think it took a perfumer who has spent time in the tropics to really understand what was necessary to create this sugar cane accord because Ms. Wright manages to achieve it.

    Sugarwood begins with that sugar cane accord and it is a moist sweetness coupled with a slight green woodiness. Ms. Wright makes a great choice in pairing this sugar cane accord with a green fig note. The fig serves to delineate the green aspect of the sugar cane while modulating the sweetness. This combination will be present throughout the development of Sugarwood. The heart is a gentle mix of iris, jasmine, and peony. It gives a light floral heart to Sugarwood that is a nice complement to the sugar cane. The base is cedar and vanilla with a hint of musk. The vanilla takes Sugarwood into more traditional sweet territory but Ms. Wright keeps a light hand on the vanilla and therefore it never really overwhelms the closing stages of Sugarwood.

    Sugarwood has average longevity and below average sillage.

    It is nice to find fragrances that remind one of one’s youth. It is even nicer to find one with the quality of Sugarwood.

    Have a Flippant Friday everyone.

    Guerlain's Parure EdT. This perfume is so odd and striking and so long-lasting! Lilac-rose-plum up top, leather-patchouli-oakmoss behind. It smells like a very masculine leather chypre with some diva-like lilac and rose thrown in - the result is quite special...

    Belated birthday greetings to Rtamara and timely greetings to ECaruthers.


    Grab a plate everyone, we deserve festivities.

    T.G.I.F.Did any other Geminis have a really weird 24 hours, Wed-Thurs? Things were almost dream-like-strange here.
    Welcome to Reine, and I guess a “rewelcome”(?) for NeedCoffee.

    Remember: The Conga line forms here tomorrow for ”Chypre-Chypre-Chypre.” That's RHM’s chant I'm following up on.

    Sampling Gucci II right now, and it smells like the buffet above: mandarin, bitter orange, black currant, violet, blackberry, jasmine, heliotrope, cedarwood, musks.

    Getting ready for sniff and speak with one of my favorite leather chypres (though some may debate it's classification, I would not).

    "The top notes include lemon, lime, coriander, myrtle, clary sage, and bergamot. The heart is composed of thyme, basil, rose and jasmine, while the base of patchouli, castoreum, labdanum, and oak moss. The perfume was created by Jacques Polge in 1981."

    Have a great Friday all.
