Givenchy III to heal from chypre-craving
Vetiver The Great!!!
Chanel pour Monsieur
Nino Cerruti 1881 (1990) Martin Gras Aromatic Oriental
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Clove, Basil, Tarragon, Cypress, Rosemary, Lavender, Juniper Berry •Middle Notes: Ylang-Ylang, Rose, Blackcurrant •Base Notes: Sandalwood, Wood Musk, Balsam Fir, Amber
A top note accord of citrus with green and aromatic notes yields to a floral-fruity heart undergirded by woody oriental notes. This is one I had nearly forgotten, but wanted to revisit after reading Luca Turin's review in "Perfumes: The Guide." I confess that I thought the top notes a bit harsh, but now I see that they lead to a beautiful masculine floriental with delicate resonances that are well worth wearing for their subtle radiance.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

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..."

Sorry to have disappeared lately... I *am* still alive!
Anyhow, today I'm in Diptyque L'eau de Tarocco, from my brand new FB that I purchased a month ago, but which didn't arrive until yesterday!
Just as well, I guess, as I think it really does best in hot and humid weather, which we've certainly got in Boston right now! I've heard comments that the musk notes in LdT smell synthetic - I actually think that it might be the saffron, which gives me a similar vibe in Miller et Bertaux's "A Quiet Morning."
Hugs to all... even if you don't think you need 'em.
L’eau de Tarocco Notes: Orange, grapefruit, saffron, cinnamon, rose, ginger, cedar, incense, musk.

It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Creed Santal Imperial
Gringo - from profumo.it - very nice!
"It is made with patchouli, Frankincense and peppermint. I rounded it and settled it with Sandalwood, enriched it with the precious aromas of Vanilla, Rose and Castoreum, and finally I lightened it with the Lemon from Sicily, fresh and joyous."

Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!
Costume National Homme. Wife liked it this AM. It reminds me most of Cartier Declaration in character, but not exact by any means, this is sweeter. So far it is a very different addition to my collection.
Today: C&S's Neroli layered with White Lotus Aromatics' Orange Blossom Supreme attar
Good luck with the speech David. Welcome back ComDiva.
Today for me (again)
Like an addict, I keep coming back to this one.
No fragrance today, giving my nose a day off.
Cartier Declaration. Love this stuff!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
SotD - This morning and afternoon it's Creed Silver Mountain Water
