    Armani Night.

    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.

    I've been feeling unwell -- chilly and sickly -- for the last few days. The Mitsouko I applied late yesterday really disagreed with me, so I am steering clear of anything of that ilk. I needed a floral with a bit of substance today, so went for Patou 1000.

    A lazy Thursday in front of me as I am currently caught up on most of my "to-do" list.

    For day four of amber week I am going for it as unadulterated as I can get it.

    Madini Amber

    Sometimes you just want your favorite things with nothing else around them. When I order bourbon I order it “straight, no chaser” because I don’t want any water to alter my enjoyment of it. In fragrance that opportunity comes along less frequently as most fragrances are compositions consisting of many notes. But like my bourbon there is just a time that I want to wear my favorite notes as unadulterated as I can get them. When I want to do that I turn to a small Moroocan perfumery Madini.

    Madini, according to their history on the website, have been a family business for fourteen generations. Madini produces perfume oils that are strong and only require a small application to be surrounded in fragrance. At the price, for these kind of fragrances, Madini might be the best bang for your buck perfume House out there.

    Madini Amber is nothing complex it is amber that has been beachcombed off the shoreline in Morocco, again according to their website i.e. take it with a grain of salt, and turned into Amber. This fragrance starts with the intense almost medicinal aspect that amber can give but the longer it is on my skin the warmer and softer it becomes and towards the end it almost takes on a woody aspect.

    Madini Amber has excellent longevity and excellent sillage.

    Amber is one of those notes, when used in other perfumes, that has a great deal of versatility. What is nice about wearing Madini Amber is all by itself that complexity is released over time while on my skin; straight, no chaser.

    Have a Tranquil Thursday everyone.

    Time for some nasal trickery. This floral should make me think of summer.
    I was once followed by a couple of frustrated bees while wearing this.

    Hello dear BNers...last night, I arrived home to find my package from Neiman's had safely arrived. It included the three (!) fragrance samples in their GWP - which I tried on different parts of me - Balenciaga Paris (subtle skin scent - pretty - will retest), an Atelier (forget which one, but it had lots of orange, in a nice way! might be a good one in summer - will retest), and Van Cleef & Arpels (Oriens). Fruity floral with patchouli in the base - the descriptions sounds nice enough on the various websites, but it is absolutely wretched on me. I took a shower and doused myself with Boucheron for bedtime...

    Today is shaping up to be one of those annoying days, unfortunately...place Raindrop on "low" and simmer for 8 hours. LOL

    Lucky for me, I am wearing one of my favorites

    SOTD: Chanel No. 19 (parfum)


    Have a great day, dear friends...

    I am in my new and resplendent green floral, Safari edp, for the evening. Quite a bright and zesty shock after the smooth seduction of Tabac Aurea and Habanita all day. It is quite reminiscent of No. 19 (as you all said it would be), but more voluptuous and less austere and actually reminds me a lot of Diva and Z-14 as far as chypres go. Fabulous!
