    Wow ! Everyone is smelling wonderful today.

    Chanel No5 EDP for me today.

    I just may have to get some extrait. The last time I owned Chanel No.5 extrait was when I was about 23 years old. I know it's been re done and all that jazz but who cares I bet it still smells like a million dollars.

    OJ Sampaquita. It is beautiful, slightly resinous but still green. I just wish it had a bit more sillage.

    Busy building an ark after all the rain this weekend, thought I'd wear some tobacco.

    Costamor Tabacca

    As a young boy growing up in Miami in the late 60's I was exposed to a different culture a bike ride from my doorstep. I would regularly ride my bike down to Calle Ocho in Little Havana and on those trips I learned how to speak Spanish, drink strong Cuban coffee, play dominos, and the art of rolling a fine cigar. Sr. Perez-Carrillo showed me how he would pick the correct wrapper leaf and and then the technique, almost like origami, that went into rolling a perfect cigar. As I would sit in the shop watching his hands blur through this process I was surrounded by the smell of tobacco leaves. Depending on their use in the cigar making as filler, inner wrapper or outer wrapper they all had their own fragrance to them.

    Elizabeth Wright who founded Costamor in 2009 spent her childhood summers in Costa Rica and her perfume house is concentrated on recreating her memory of fragrances from those summers in Costa Rica. I am guessing she also spent some time in a cigar shop during her time in the tropics because Tabacca, one of the first two Costamor fragrances, smells like the varied differences in tobacco leaves. Tabacca unfolds like the layers that go into making a fine cigar.

    The outer layer is a beautiful mix of a green tobacco leaf accord mixed with a hint of apple. This is tobacco before it reaches that narcotic richness that drying enhances. Here you still smell the green leafy quality plus the nicotinic hints underneath it all. The choice to pair this with a tart green apple elevates the beginning of this into unforgettable territory. The heart is the familair rich dried tobacco accord in all of its glory. Ms. Wright chooses to add a rose tea accord as complement and that mix of light rose and tea, as in the top, makes for a well-chosen partner. The base is a warm amber to bring Tabacca to a soft finish.

    Tabacca has excellent longevity and average sillage.

    This is another excellent fragrance from Costamor that does what few other fragrances have tried, to explore both the green and dried aspects of tobacco in the same fragrance. Like the child who marveled at the skill it took to make a perfect cigar I am now the adult who admires Ms. Wright's skill in fully exploring both facets of tobacco in Tabacca.

    Have a Merry Monday everyone.

    Sofie & I brought home another kitten from the shelter yesterday. She's sitting on my head, yes, my head, purring loudly as I type. 9 weeks, black "smoke", her fur is grey underneath, green eyes. Cuddle cat to the max. She slept on my head last night. Her shelter name was "Quinci". The litter was found in a Quick check dumpster, so all three kittens have names that begin with "Q". We changed it to Countess Quinci von Bean and call her "Bean".

    Now, I have to break the news to my husband.....eeeek!

    Bean likes rose scents, so I'll wear Rosine's Rosa Flamenca again.

    Oh & our road is closed, flooded by the Passaic River at both ends.

    I'm feeling suitably trashy in Insolence EDT. I started in a new role today, I've moved from Training into Human Resources which is exactly where I want to be. It's all very new and it's great to finally put alot of the things I have been studying into practice.

    Azzaro pour Homme

    I am not a huge lavender fan, but APH is a perfectly blended aromatic fougere that never fails to surprise me with nuance. It has an outstanding lavender and anise opening, an herbal/citrus basil and oakmoss heart, and a musky, woody, ambergris base.





    I love how this model is hugging the oversized bottle like a big teddy bear in this ad.

    And it's got a very panEuropean/Roman Empire, masculine, martial vibe, so it fits for the Ides of March (Mars's month--god of War).

    Have a great Monday! If you are a bloody dictator/conqueror, try to avoid getting stabbed if you can. Peace.

    RHM, stay safe! Congrats on your new kitty. She sounds adorable.

    Gray and dreary this morning. Power's still out in lots of areas. Traffic lights were out at several major intersections. A couple of main roads were closed off and traffic diverted due to downed trees and/or power lines. Made for a challenging commute.
