    Thumbs up S O T D Friday 18 June 2010

    Happy friday my beloved Ladies. Best for everyone

    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..."

    I've been meaning to test Brandy again. I love the smell of apples, but have not found many great apple fragrances (don't care for the Donna Karan Delicious scents). My favorite apple just happens to be one of my all time favorite scents, Neil Morris's October. Still, I wouldn't mind some variety!

    Today I'm on the hunt for a great coconut fragrance. Testing Sarah Bolton's Soul on my left wrist and, while I think the pineapple in it is excellent, the coconut just seems to weigh the whole thing down into Pina Colada 'ville. But I just put it on. Maybe over time...??

    Klateau bahradda nicteaux to you, kbe.

    Yesterday's revisitation with Creed Aubepine Acacia and i Coloniali Yuzu Splash put me in a green state. Today I'm going with what I have in quantity (but thinking the Yuzu splash is a must-buy): Molinard de Molinard

    IOn my left hand, Mitsouko thanks to a mini in the post. Much more gentle than I expected.... and on the other hand a vintage Alyssa Ashley for Houbigant Musk. I can smell real musk in this one I think.

    I love the sound of that Terre Hermes...

    Kbe, I love Gucci PH! Of all my husband's fragrances, I like that best, even more than his Original Santal.

    I'll probably go green myself later, but at the moment I'm wearing Fresh Hesperides, thanks to Mimi Gardenia. to Mims! It's delicious! I'm not sure what I'll wear later when I spruce myself up for the evening, but I seem to be on the same wavelength as a few others here. Really craving something green.

    Happy Birthday to Magnifiscent!



    TGIF! I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

    Good Morning All. Ronni, you mentioned you were on a quest for a coconut fragrance, I can't help you with that, but I did use a delightful new body wash this morning. It was Softsoap 'Coconut Scrub body buff wash' mmmm, delightful, what a great way to wake up your senses! My SOTD is Fresh 'Citron de vigne'

    Hello everyone!

    I'm not sure if this is privileged information (I know I feel privileged!) but today is a very special day, for on this day a few years ago, a wee she-wolf pup was born! Today we call her Twolf, and we celebrate this day upon which she came into the world and made it a more wonderful place!


    (((Happy Birthday Timberwolf!!)))


    I hope you don't mind that I spilled the beans, but as an Ambassador of Birthdays here on Basenotes, you should also have many good wishes and tasty cakes!




    Wishing you the most wonderful year ever!!



    And in her honor, I'm wearing the ground-breaking - stunning - vintage Coriandre from Jean Couturier. Another green and gorgeous rosey chypre, and absolutely one of the best!

    Y'all have a great day!

    Happy birthday, Magnifiscent, and also to our glorious Twolf!



    Today I'm in Parfumerie Generale's Yuzu Ab Irato, and it is just not doin' it for me. Too powdery, not enough "oomph" to the floral or watery elements to suit me. Yuzu fans will probably enjoy this, however. Are you listening, Ms. Quarry?

    Yuzu Ab Irato notes: Japanese yuzu fruit, spearmint, thyme, hyssop, myrtle, pepper, hyacinth, magnolia, jasmine and bamboo.

    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

    Guerin Pierre- 'Narcisse, Morpheus & Iris', 1811

    Frederic Malle - Iris Poudre

    Sumptuous, this fragrance spoils me for any others.
    A rich floral that knows when to stop and turn green.
    Never overpowered, I am swept into a gentle tumble of glory
    and breathe great pleasurable clouds.

    Notes;
    Top: bergamot, orange, rosewood, ylang-ylang, carnation
    Heart: magnolia, jasmine, muguet, violetta-rose, aldehydes
    Base: iris, musk, amber, vanilla, sandalwood, ebony, tonka bean and vetiver

    kumquat, that is stunning! If it smells half as beautiful as it looks, you are heavenly today.

    Happy birthday, Twolf!

    Since I have been trying to educate my nose, I thought it would be fun to grab a random sample-in-a-baggie without looking at the label, apply blind, and see if I can tell what I'm wearing by scent alone. I was also curious whether I would experience the scent differently if I didn't know when I put it on what notes to expect. Well, my blind pick is clearly Serge Lutens Daim Blond again! Opens very sweet and then the apricotty suede rolls in. I think there's some cedar in there too, don't know if it's a listed note ...

    Today I'm sampling Xerjofff Shingl. The industrial-strength iris in the beginning is overpowering, but once it settles down I'm liking it. A lot.

    So far two of my little spray sample vials from Luckyscent have malfunctioned. One wouldn't spray, and the sprayer cap of this one was loose so some of the perfume had leaked out. It fell right off when I tried to use it, so I had to remove it and dab. Bummer.
