    ( from samples )
    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..."

    Felt the need for a "guy's" frag this ayem....specifically spices and woods, with maybe some incense and amber and vetiver thrown in.

    A cool and rainy day here, made warmer by Rose des Bois by Profumo.it.
    This one I have to dab on rather than spray or I find it overwhelming. It lasts and lasts.

    ['White Lillies', Henri Fantin Latour, c1883]

    Penhaligon's Lily & Spice

    Head Notes: White Madonna Lily and Saffron
    Heart Notes: Hot Pepper and Clove
    Base Notes: White Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla and Benzoin


    I know lily is a love or hate note - I love it! This one has been on my radar for a while, and stupidly I forgot to try it out in the store. I've been eyeing blind buys on eBay for a while, and it finally came up within my budget! Yays! It's fantastic, not an overblown bunch but a couple of stems just opened. There're cloves keeping it dry, and it's edging towards a slightly powdery vanilla. The perfumer was Mathilde Bijaoui, who has just done Tilda Swinton's Like This for Etat Libre D'orange.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in another recently rediscovered rare beauty - Rose Cardin by Pierre Cardin, a lush and sexy rose chypre from 1990. This should really be in the Unsung Treasures thread, but I had almost completely forgotten about it until I actually laid eyes on it again a few weeks ago (in the same store in Sint Maarten where I found the Mystère - it was a very good store!)

    Top notes - May rose, Rosewood, Peach, Apricot, Bergamot, Coriander
    Middle notes - Blackcurrant buds, Jasmine, Cardamom
    Base notes - Patchouli, Labdanum, Musk, Sandalwood, Oakmoss






    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    Cuir de Lancome this morning. Maybe not really the right weather, but I miss this one when I don't wear it. So it crossed my mind this morning, and I took that as a sign from the perfume gods - "this is the one for you today". Hmmm, now I am hearing voices........

    Morning all !

    My scent of the morning is Eau de NOTHING ! I had a dreadful migraine yesterday afternoon (the kind where you feel dizzy and want to puke ) , last night, through the night and here I am this morning, with my head still aching a bit - so I dare not risk it. I blame that darned Natori sample I tried yesterday .

    Have a great new day everyone and many hugs to everyone ! Love you all as always !

    Heritage (vintage Eau de Parfum) by Guerlain



    The very last few drops from my decant bottle. I seriously need to find a full bottle of this, one of these days. In a class by itself.

    I'm in another Keiko Mecheri sample -- Cuir Cordoba. This must be the most cheerful, unassertive leather/suede ever created, warm and sunny with some kind of apricotty fruit note. If this fragrance met Bandit or even Cabochard in a dark alley, it would get its butt kicked. I'm not really getting violet or green from this, but the suede note is prominent albeit very polite.

    Good morning! It sounds like we've pinched the sun for where I am in Canada...?

    Evangeline, the Rose Cardin bottle is very pretty, and I like the Gres Cabaret bottle too, Haunani!

    I'm flying medium today in Vera Wang's Bouquet again. I've been bummed the last couple of days because I'm being 'displaced' from my job. Boo! So, YSL's Baby Doll will follow later as a pick-me-up.

    Oh, almost forgot to say how much I like C Rose's Annayake pour Elle bottle from yesterday's SOTD.

    I'll lend some of our sunshine to all. Have a fragrant day!

    I have that in my collection, haven't sniffed it in 10 years or so,
    literally, so it's probably gone bad by now. I'll look into it!

    Seems like quite a few people are having headaches/migraines & veritgo lately. {{{{{{{{hug!}}}}}}}}

    The weird weather isn't helping. I know it only 47 degrees & drizzling here. My poor iris are not faring well in this. The flower petals are so fagile, the slighest wind or rain beats them down. That's one of them in my new avatar.

    Following Roberto's lead from yesterday.

    Diptyque Vetyverio

    This is a very good vetiver fragrance from Diptyque it is reminding me of a similar contruction to Tam Dao but with vetiver as the spine of the fragrance instead of sandalwood as in Tam Dao. Really want to wear this on a blazing hot day because I think it is going to be fabulous in those conditions.
