    Wearing Bill Blass Fragrances' Couture 6 Moroccan Rose. Notes are: Apple Blossom, Black Berries, Rose Sari, Moroccan Rose, Patchouli. This is a rose scent unlike any other I own, which is saying something! It's sweeter, more like the fragrance of the wonderful old bourbon rose, Zephirine Drouhin.

    Hiris today. Here's to better times for everyone here!
    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.

    With so much turmoil for many of us it is nice to hear about the mothers-to-be as that is a happy thing, except for the morning sickness.

    Rainy day at Stately Somerville Manor and I wanted a pinch of spice for the day.

    Odin 01 Nomad

    There has been a tradition of menswear brands branching to fragrance which starts with Ralph Lauren and Polo all the way to the present day and Ed Hardy. Even smaaler stores are doing it as Zara’s fragrance collection is a good example. Now a small menswear store in Soho in New York has created their own brand of fragrance. The store is Odin and the one of their first three release in 2009 was 01 Nomad.

    Nomad as the name implies is meant to evoke the wandering nomads and in particular those who ply the spice routes. As I am a lover of spicy fragrances this was the one fragrance I expected to resonate with me. Nomad imposes its spices over a traditional oriental architecture and isn’t particularly ground breaking.

    The top of Nomad begins with a great juniper note combined with bergamot and citrus. There have been a number of men’s fragrances that have been using juniper effectively early on in the development and Nomad is one of those. The heart is a smooth tonka paired with a clean cedar and pinch of pepper. The base deepens the woodiness as sandalwood along with a warm musk close out Nomad’s journey on my skin.

    Nomad has average longevity and average sillage.

    Nomad is not anything new by anyone’s stretch of the imagination but the ingredients used are good quality; and for those who like their orientals with just a pinch of spice Nomad just might be the fragrant journey for you.

    Have a Tasteful Tuesday everyone.

    Yves St. Laurent - Opium
    Vintage Parfum
    Created in 1977 by Jean Amic and Jean-Louis Sieuzac of Roure-Bertrand
    (now Roure) Perfumers; a classical soft oriental parfum with top notes of
    mandarin, clove, plum, bergamot, pepper and coriander,
    heart notes of lily of the valley, rose, myrrh, peach and jasmine,
    on base notes of benzoin, labdanum, myrrh, opoponax, castoreum,
    cedar and sandalwood.

    Slightly soapy to start. Then the hallucinogenic effect kicks in.
    This is one elegant scent. A sumptuous experience to be savored.

    Sampling Guerlain Parure (thanks pelle!)

    So far it's a slightly soapy pot pourri scent but I am getting hints of leather and cinnamon behind the rose and lilacs. I am hoping they intensify. It's definitely a dry chypre, but warmer than Mitsouko and no woods like Vol de Nuit as of yet. It casts a sort of antique pink coral hue in my mind's eye, though it's more elegant and not as garrish as this coral parure jewel set.





    I'm definitely enjoying the complex development and will sample again, but perhaps luckily given its scarcity, it's not screaming "must have" quite yet.

    Enjoy the day!

    SoTD E. Coudray Esperys I think the sillage is quite office-safe, I was smelling it all day but nobody else seemed to notice. VERY nice.

    This afternoon even though the base was still strong, I put a little spritz of Chanel Coromandel over it, and then got compliments... something in here smells very good. (oh, it's me! Thanks!) I liked the layered combo but it's not really "me" (even though the Esperys is.)

    This evening after a shower... maybe Chanel Pour Monsieur

    (Now our Dmitri knows why I can't afford his DIY supplies! I'm "grounded" from scent purchase for the foreseeable future. An intervention is likely should I continue. (self-imposed grounding after a discussion with the Poolboy.) )
