    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.

    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!

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's an overcast morning on the Oregon coast, so I needed a pick me up. Couldn't even decide on a scent, so turned to this thread and thought of becoming a scent twin with someone. Ooolala30, today I was a step away from becoming a scent twin with you since I considered trying on my sample of Le Baiser Du Dragon, but no... I have a sample of Narcisso Rodriguez Essence, it's been sitting in my drawer forever, so for a minute I considered that one... but RHM set my mind to the right idea! I was just recently at DSH studio, and I smelled Cafe Noir there, and something in it didn't appeal to me, and the very friendly person there suggested me to try Lumiere, another fragrance with coffee and spices. Oh dear!! This is the pick me up I needed. It's delicious. Now, back to work!! I feel the rush of energy all of a sudden!

    Ah yes, almost forgot -- I am testing a Notre Flore Neroli on my other arm. Variety is the spice of life.

    Started off the cloudy overcast morning in a perfume schizophrenic mood... so side by side (as opposed to one after the other like yesterday) comparisons of Dzing! and Chanel Cuir de Russie. I LOVE them both, but they are very different versions of leather.

    This got me craving some tobacco and so I snuck a tiny dab of SSS Tabac Aurea on the back of one hand, which seems, to my newbie nose, to have a touch of leather as well. Tabac Aurea has really grown on me, might need a bottle.

    Finally showered and the sun has come out, yippee!

    I tried a sample of Chanel 28 La Pausa. Such a beautiful-earthy-sheer-ethereal IRIS..... which had absolutely NO lasting power on my skin. There is one of the Les Exclusifs that I don't have to lust over.

    My kind friends ! Thanks for the well wishes The migraine has gone now thank goodness .

    So... scent of the afternoon has to be Carnal Flower. I am sorry to be boring sometimes with my scents but I am truly addicted to this now. It's the scent of the inside of a florist's. Now at one time I would have turned my nose up to that smell because of negative associations but I have gotten over that now.

    SoTD was Amazone, a somewhat season-neutral scent on me, for an "unsettled" weather day. This evening I'm wearing Anthracite, which is proving too much a cold-weather scent, and as much as I love it, am thinking of replacing it with something more suitable and comforting for warm, damp weather.

    Hugs all round, and gee whitelace, is THAT what they call it now, "displaced?" Not a very good euphemism, is it.

    GLAD the migraine is done, mysticknot! Migraines suck, so very much.
