    That was my impression, too. Mostly Kiehl's Musk plus a bunch'o roses.

    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.

    A big amount of Guerlain's tender but dark floral chypre Chant d'Arômes, with honeysuckle, indolent flowers and a green chypre mixture of earthy oakmoss, vetiver, tonka bean and wood that revives the spicy powder of Vol de Nuit.

    I am off to a very stressful day at work in Natori. I baked up a storm yesterday so that I might feel that I am caring for my colleagues as they receive the news this morning. Don't worry--their jobs are safe. And they will be munching on my Irish brown bread and walnut coffee cake as they absorb the changes that will take place. Natori is the perfect choice, Lovethescents.

    Cannot decide what to wear today.

    I'm testing a sample of Juliette has a Gun's Citizen Queen this morning and I'm going back and forth on just like, love, or appreciate. Apparently undecided there too. I think the scent itself may be as well. Very aldehydic, very vanilla, and very leather. Supposedly it's a chypre according to description and notes (well it has "chypre notes"), but I am not getting that at all. This one perplexes me, but in a good way.

    Oh bother. I'll post later when I decide on the SotD.

    Thank you all for your very kind and supportive words! Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I'm just expressing myself :-)

    Last night I spritz a tiny amount of Mugler Cologne on DH. It was woooooooonderful! Thank you dear potiron!

    Today's a jam packed day with the boy....gym class, followed by lunch and a playgroup. He's such a good child, he deserves it!

    I had a dream last night about wearing Dolce odd? Think I'll try a little dab of that..

    Therese, I'm so happy you're pleased with your fragrance choice! Your baking, by the way, sounds fabulous!

    Some lovely images here, today.

    I've reached the point in my term when my students hate the sight of me and, frankly, I feel likewise.

    Still, it is all somehow more tolerable in a generous spritz of Cuir de Lancome.

    Good Morning, dear ones!

    SOTD is actually two: Rosine's (you knew there had to be a rose, right?) Rosa Flamenca and Lisa Hoffman's French Clary Sage Day Time. I didn't actually layer them over one another. The LH is behind my ears & the Rosine is on my wrists.

    I thought I'd revisit my post and add some information about the scents I selected for today. From the Les Parfums de Rosine web site: "The perfume was created by François Robert in 2004.
    Rosa Flamenca is a night and day perfume. It reveals the freshness of orange blossom and neroli, and the sweetness of jasmine and rose.

    Olfactory family : Floral Bouquet.
    Top note : Orange Blossom, Neroli, Petit Grain, Green orange peel.
    Heart note : Jasmine, Rose de Mai Absolue, Rose essence, Fig tree hood.
    Base note : Sandalwood, Benzoin, White musk."

    It's absolutley beautiful!

    And from Liss Hoffman's skincare web site: "French Clary Sage features a bright, fresh personality. Linen and cotton accords are blended with notes of French Clary Sage and Sicilian Bergamot for a feminine aroma that is refined and sophisticated."

    And yes, I feel quite sophisticated as I type here in my jeans & old shirt, getting ready to do my husband's ironing. Ahhhhh....the power of scent!

    Continuing amber week in a good one introduced to me by the lovely and talented pomander.

    L’Artisan Ambre Extreme

    If you were taking the SAT’s and you came across the question “Jean-Claude-Ellena is to Extreme like hand is to _____?” The word you’d use to fill in the blank would probably not be glove. More likely it would be some non-sequitur because Ellena is known for the minamilist take on perfume composition and when I see extreme in the name of a fragrance I expect something with some power. Nevertheless, in 200, M. Ellena created Ambre Extreme for L’Artisan and while it is by no means a fragrance I would describe as extreme in the sense of power it is an extremely good amber.

    In many ways Ambre Extreme exhibits all the hallmarks of an Ellena fragrance. A few notes, in this case six; each phase has a distinct feel, and it all floats in a self-contained bubble. Ambre Extreme is a straight and simple amber but M. Ellena chooses his complementary notes wisely and so it takes that simple amber accord and enhances it throughout the development of Ambre Extreme.

    Ambre Extreme starts with a soft cardamom and nutmeg laid over the amber. This gives a soft beginning that keeps the amber from getting too edgy on me. A very discrete rose enters in the heart and it adds a floral counterpoint but the amber is really the dominant note through thew middle stage of this fragrance. The base adds patchouli and vanilla. The presence of vanilla in other amber fragrances makes it too sweet for my tastes but in Ambre Extreme M. Ellena keeps the vanilla’s volume turned way down so it enhances the amber instead of detracting.

    Ambre Extreme has above average longevity and moderate sillage on me.

    While it might be hard to fill in the blank on my first hypothetical SAT question my second one might be easier “Jean-Claude Ellena is to Perfume like artist is to ______?” My answer would be intelligence and Ambre Extreme is a good example of M. Ellena’s intelligent ability to enhance a central accord into something unique.

    Have a Thrilling Tuesday everyone.
