    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..."

    Supposedly, I need to quit posting my SotD -- it does not change and still is the same -- Guerlain Chamade. Almost put on Lady Vengeance though.

    My last Keiko Mecheri sample today; Paname.

    notes: green notes, absinthe, rare spices, comores vanilla flower, tonka bean, woodsy notes, powder, musk

    Bittersweet gourmand delight. This is something I'm going to have to return to when I'm less stuffy because I get the feeling I'm missing out on some of the green notes, making the absinthe licoricey and creamy. What I am getting is delicious, and the most tousled of the KM scents I've tried. Less mannish than Oliban, but the licorice occasionally reads like a trace of a lover's scent.

    Petra, you got me all excited about Keiko Mecheri's sample program and I scurried over to the site to join up! To be greeted by confusing info.

    On the Sample Program intro screen, 12 2.5 samples for $35 is offered. On the order screen, it's 28 (size not specified) samples for $65.00.

    Busy..busy ....busy today getting the house & yard ready for my husband to visit. Yipee!

    I'm joining the Chanel crowd in #19 but in the edt, 'cause that's what I have. #19 energizes me & the bees don't seem as interested when I'm outside.

    I woke up this morning smelling a phantom scent, the existence of which I had totally forgotten about. Back in the 90s I had a parfum mini of DNA by Bijan, which I loved. No...I don't have it anymore. I think I may have even used it up. I don't have anything like that anymore, but I did find a sample of Estee Lauder's Sensuous, so I'm in a dab of that, which is probably more wearable in this day and age. It's satisfying the craving anyway.

    Exciting goings on across the Pond! Sending love to our friends in Great Britain.

    TGIF!

    L'Artisan Tea for Two today. Like MikeP, I like to do a casual Friday vibe - either funky or just easy going. Tea for Two is very laid back and relaxing.

    Dali EDP. This is similar in some ways to myrrh laden Le Mome. The top notes are brighter and their is enough cedar in the composition to make it a happier scent. My exploration of this house happily continues.

    I'm also wearing a Keiko Mecheri sample -- today is Passiflore. This is one of the bonus samples they threw in -- I wouldn't have chosen it myself -- but it's lovely. Crisp and fresh and warm all at once, and the sweetness is there but in check, as if the fruits are not quite ripe. It's more complex scent than her Osmanthus, which I tried earlier this week; that one opened like a somewhat sweeter and less assertive SL Datura Noir, but then tragically collapsed after a few hours into an undifferentiated too-sweet musk. I hope this one holds up!

    I wish I had a more detailed list of notes, because there's something in the opening I've smelled before and it's SO GOOD and I have no idea what it is!

    Taolady, from the KM home page choose "samples," then choose "individual samples" (not "about sample program") -- that should give you the option to choose five samples for a flat $12 shipping & handling fee. the site is VERY badly designed.

    EDIT -- and WHOOSH! here comes the peach! It's a very nice peach, though; not too sweet, kind of heady, like peach skin more than the fruit itself.

    Today I'm wearing Black Aoud by Montale from a sample. It's loaded with incense and is absolutely delicious. I noticed several are wearing my FAVE, Chanel No. 19. I missed the boat on that one, since I've already applied my Montale, but I love this one too.

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
