Thread: S o t D - Sunday 4th April 2010
My SotD is arguably the best sandalwood fragrance ever made. Shockingly this does remind me a bit of Tam Dao, that I don't hold in high esteem.
.Top Notes: Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon.
Middle Notes: Mandarin, Laurel, Coriander.
Base Notes:Thyme, Sandalwood, Benzoin
Guerlain - Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Habit Rouge EDT by Guerlain
Annick Goutal Eau de Charlotte
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Top Note: Frankincense, Iris, Pink Pepper
Middle Note: Guaiac Wood, Pau Santo Wood, Benzoin, Coriander
Base Note: Patchouli, Copahu Balm, Musk
The French invented papiers d'Arménie, strips of paper that were impregnated with incense notes of benzoin and frankincense. These were burned to perfume the air in the home in the days before air fresheners. Guerlain has updated the concept into a beautiful oriental fragrance that deepens the resinous notes with patchouli, rich woods, and balsams; at the same time it is lightened by florals and brought out by delicate spicy notes. This is really a distinguished shared fragrance, and a smooth and elegant presence for any wearer.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
