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..."

Oh, Roberto, my favourite men's scent!!
I am going retro in the 70's classic "O" DE LANCOME.

Wishlist is pointless.
Happy Birthday, Quarry! I hope you have a wonderful day, doing exactly what you want to do.
I''m going to SAKs later today & I'll spritz myself with TDC Sel de Vetiver & Jo Malone's Black Vetyver Café, in your honor.
Until then, I am wafting Creed Irisia.....again.

Thank you, my most significant honeys. Today I join Musse as the 1955 babies turn 55.
RHM, that’s quite a tribute/commitment! I’m almost afraid to hear how you feel about the combo.
The day started with daughter getting up early to prep and serve tiramisu birthday cake.
This afternoon DD's BF is coming over to prepare an elaborate eel dinner!?!?!
What scent goes with that?
I set off now to clean the house in the fresh scent of Comme des Garcons Lily.
You don't know how much your sweetness means to me, my friends.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Happy birthday, dear Quarry!
Robert Piguet Visa, a luscious, rich, boozy oriental with a chyprey-leathery backbone. I love it, not least because it's a gift from a darling friend.
Take care, everyone!

Good Morning All. Today I'm wearing CHANEL 'Coco Mademoseille' one of my favorites!
Happy Birthday, Quarry!
(I thought you might enjoy this garden even more than a cake.)
Wearing Givenchy III today -- take care, all.
10 Corso Como.
WOW, nice photo, Roberto!
HAPPY 55th BIRTHDAY QUARRY!!!
Today I'm scentless as I may do some sampling while out and about.
Last night I continued the iris fest in Malle's Iris Poudre. Wow, had almost forgotten about this one what with my excitement about my new/retro green scents, but it's SOOO BEAUTIFUL...
I'm in one of my newer favorites for warm-weather, Fragonard's beautiful Belle de Soleil. Despite the tropical sounding floral notes, it doesn't smell exactly tropical to me. And although it isn't a suntan lotion sort of beach smell, it definitely smells beachy and sun-baked....like a sunny Mediterranean vacation. It's sweetly mellow and milky, sultry and warm, with just the right amount of citrussy sparkle to keep it from being oppressive. And it's different - I think it's the woody-sweet petitgrain that makes it so unique. If there's anything else that smells like Belle de Soleil, I'm not aware of it.
Top notes - bergamot, orange, lemon petitgrain
Middle notes - tiare, frangipani, jasmine
Base notes - benzoin, musk, vetiver
Happy Happy Birthday to you, Quarry! The world is lucky to have you in it!
Y'all have a fabulous day!

Prompted by jenson's patchouli thread, I will join JaimeB in the house of Ulrich Lang's...

A proper summer patchouli. Who'd have thought?
