    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..."

    Morning all,

    it's a public holiday here in Sweden today, which is why I'm still lounging about in my dressing gown, unscented. I've decided to wear the same scent I wore yesterday Kingdom by Alexander McQueen. It's so gorgeous and sexy!

    Hello, you beautiful people. Apologies for my absence. Been trying to earn some nickels doing odd projects, which means dealing with processes which don’t move as efficiently as when working with my clients of longstanding. Whaaaa. Frustration and less playtime for Quarry. For more than 20 years I was an okay breadwinner, now I can’t even collect on work I did six months ago. Okay, enough bellyaching.

    Haven’t worn fragrance in a day or two (gasp!), but out-of-town relatives coming in today, so I’m off to the shower and then hope to wow them with some Sabi.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Carthusia Ligea "La Sirena". It's been a while since I've worn this and I don't know why, it's absolutely lovely with mandarin and opoponax. Kind of like Shalimar's sunnier, more light-hearted sister.

    It's another busy Thursday (sigh).
    I put a light dab of two Estee Lauders on my arms: Youth Dew and Cinnabar to test. Funny, I thought I'd love Youth Dew and would hate Cinnabar, and it seems to be the other way around.

    I have no idea what FB I will end up wearing for the busy Thursday today, but I'll have time to think about it!

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Chanel - Cuir de Russie

    This is the parfum which has far
    fewer aldehydes than the EDT.
    There is an initial profusion of florals
    and leather and in the end, a buttery
    iris and amber combination.

    Notes include; orange blossom, bergamot,
    mandarin, clary sage; iris, jasmine,
    rose, ylang-ylang, cedarwood, vetiver,
    styrax, leather, amber, vanilla.

    I just assumed that "barbare" in that perfume ad meant something like "barbaric" in French! Uncivilized, wild, unbridled, something like that. It doesn't sound like the scent fits my guess, though. I suppose a sophisticated French femme could be barbare in her own way, though.

    I'm wearing Estee Lauder Exotic Pleasures. I've been unimpressed with the entire Pleasures line so far, but Exotic is the one I can wear without much ill effects... without much adoration either. Sounds unclear why I still have my mini -- I guess to figure out what fails to impress me?..

    Ah, Quarry, don't you just ADORE deadbeat clients? (sigh... ) Well... Today I started out in Habit Rouge EDP (the one w/agarwood in it, yes!) and when I got home I had two boxes sitting at my doorstep, one of 'em with a Turbulences vintage parfum splash (I know... I know... my retirement will at least SMELL great even if I live on rice, but it was SO inexpensive, she whines)... and the lovely Xerjoff Casamorati 1888 Fiore d'Ulivo I WON (happy dance) in cairomerta's drawing. So...after deadheading some roses, and vowing to hold off on the Fiore d'Ulivo until tomorrow, I'm wearing Turbulences this afternoon. Might test Xerjoff Shooting Stars Modoc later tonight after I finish my own freelance graphics work...

    This evening , I am enjoying my sample of Black Gardenia by Michelle Bergman. I don't need my 'gardenia' to be super realistic all the time I guess. I love the drama of this .Now I can pretend that there really are black gardenias somewhere in the world ! *LOL*

    Hi! The weened is almost here.

    Happy belated birthday to RainDropSparkle!!

    I have not been on the forum since Monday and I need to catch up with the SOTD since then. Working late again. Today I wore Douce Amere. I almost panicked when I saw there is less than 1/3 of the bottle left, but then I remembered I bought a back up, whew. Yesterday I wore the new Guerlain Cologne the Parfumier and the day before Angelique Noire from samples. I liked the first blast of Angelique Noire, but the drydown was meh, or perhaps I was too busy to notice it.
