Base Notes: Chocolate Note, Vanilla, Musk, Cedar
"Bittersweet" indeed. Bitter wormwood (absinthe); sweet anise, cinnamon, tiaré flower, jasmine, lily, and vanilla; bittersweet chocolate note; then inedible powdery musk and woody cedar. What lingers on me is the opening of wormwood and anise, hauntingly filtered through the inedible base notes. I sprayed a tiny bit on my hand early one afternoon, and it remained in a subtle whisper of this four-note chord when I woke up the following morning. It is quiet, but not shy; soft, but not yielding. And now, it is being discontinued. Get it while you still can.
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.
The message this morning was "easy-going".
I still like Trussardi "Essenza del Tempo", but I ADORED it last summer. It has the feeling of summer in Italy.
Tonight calls for a revenge, a real contrast...

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
