Eau de Parfum
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..."

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...
Cuba Jungle Zebra
notes: cardamom and nutmeg accords, blended with water lily and dazzling spices
Sadly, no spices. But, it does smell just like generic mid range UK shampoo, in that pleasant, clean, inoffensive way! I quite like generic shampoo smell, but it's especially interesting how it subtley changes from country to country and from pricepoint to pricepoint.
Sorry you have eye ouchies, ineespenes!
Happy Birthday tdm61!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Good morning! I'm starting off the day testing L'Artisan's Mure et Musc Extreme.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! ComDiva, love that cake!
Inees, I hope you feel better soon.
Joining the Guerlainers with Attrape-Coeur
Best to all!

Happy birthday to TDM1961 and get better soon Ineespenes!
Continuing my sampling of the Juliette has a Gun scents. Today I'm in Lady Vengeance. A prickly rose who gives the finger to the establishment. Agent Provocateur's illegitimate love child. With a huge pink bow in her spiky hair. Love this stuff.
Chanel - Bois des Iles
Sandalwood creates the illusion of gingerbread here in this sensuous creation.
Cool iris and coriander bring clever contrast.
I think of Red Riding Hood with her basket of goodies to deliver to Grandmother's house.
Notes of sandalwood, vetiver, tonka bean, vanilla, ylang ylang, iris,
coriander, rose, jasmine and aldehydes.

Vetiver (vintage Eau de Cologne) by Guerlain
Good morning, all!
Today I'm in Eau d'Italie. I don't get any of the famous "cement" accord -- when it first goes on I'm anosmic to the opening, and then I can't identify any specific notes. It just smells very rich, sort of masculine, and slightly sweet. Very, very yummy; I kind of want to make out with my wrist.
