    Eau de Parfum



    GUERLAIN
    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..."

    Lemming some of you smart and elegant parfumista/os from yesterday in Chanel 31 Rue Cambon. With notes like this, I should've known I'd fall in love with this one.

    31 Rue Cambon notes include: Gentle aldehydes, bergamot, black pepper, patchouli, cistus labdanum and iris.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Happiest of birthdays to tdem 1961! Hope you have a great day!

    My it's been a long time since I've posted. I took a hiatus from my fragrance passion, as I've been concentrating on making some long needed changes in my life. I didn't expect to completely withdraw from Basenotes, but somehow that's what happened. I hope everyone here has been well!

    Today I woke up and had a craving for Hermes Caleche, which I haven't worn for at least a year. It's gorgeous smelling on this cool, dry, sunny Spring day. Creamiest citrus, floral, and mossy-wood scent. Ahhhhh, fragrance...
