    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!

    Hello dear BNers! Today, I spritzed quite a lot of my...

    SOTD: Bal a Versailles EDC

    I agree with those that say that this formulation has quite a bit more floral in/at the top. I also get an occasional big whiff of tobacco, which is actually very nice. I don't know if I'm a sillage monster this morning, but something was making the very slow and somewhat surly cashier at the drugstore sniffy...hmmmm...

    Upping the oakmoss ante from Parure this morning and donning vintage Estee Lauder Azuree this afternoon. A rich, green-leather chypre equally at home at a posh yacht party in Cannes or cruising the darkest leather bars of Marseilles (or just relaxing on a warm early spring day).

    I've been to the shops today. On my left arm, Iris Nobile. Beautiful and slightly parma-violetty. On my right, Magnolia Nobile and Stella Nude. The Stella is all rose, and the Magnolia surprised me by being so full of lemon in the top notes.

    I'm back in Brasil Dream by Estee Lauder . It's very early Wednesday morning for me now. Still thinking of my Basenotes friends who need support. *HUGS*

    There is a very good looking Brazilian instructor here- male ,who is quite a character,very friendly - tanned, really really ripped ,huge muscles and buff, plucks his eyebrows, wears abit of makeup, completely hairless due to waxing, my girl's eye tells me -he is the embodiment of Brasil Dream ! We laughed when I pointed to this orange colored bottle of perfume and said " Brasil Dreeaam " "Brasil Dreeeeeaaaam " *LOL*

    chaelaran - Pearl Musk is delightful ,my fave AL musk.

    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.) )

    Mom's doing fine and is over devouring sausage and peppers, whole grain bread and green beans.

    We went shopping today and it was easier to just bring her home for supper. We're watching the old Jane Eyre movie with Olivia de Havilland and Orson Welles.

    Many thanks for the prayers for her!
