    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...??

    I love the sound of that Terre Hermes...

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!

    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.

    Oh guys, you are so sweet and thoughtful -- I have been avalanched with PMs, and those from my BN family are the best -- Ermano himself (Magnifiscent or just Mag for many of you, my sweet little handsomer and smarter Italian twin), Ms.R (long time no hear, I was about to send a search expedition, wished me a happy Wofltag -- Dragontag is coming soon dear!), Ms. Tao sent me that Brandy that I am wearing for a couple of days now and also I got a few snail-mail cards (Ashley, Lisa, James and Rita). Thank you, you made me feel special, appreciated and lucky.

    It is also Sir Paul McCartney and Isabella Rossellini birthday. They are sort of connected with the fragrant world, I have been told.

    I will wear Coriandre for the evening. No fragrant gifts yet, but the weekend is coming and I will be off -- and Internet is right here and TJMaxx is only 85 miles away. And we will probably go out to eat Chinese because I like it so (take your pick, 17 to 37 miles away).

    I'm chiming in late with an affectionate Happy Birthday to you, Twolf!



    My SotD for this busy day was Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre. Lovely!

    Happy Birthday to Twolf and Magnifiscent! June Babies are the Bestest!!


    I've been slackin on my posting. I'm wearing the very lovely Acqua Fiorentina. I finally figured out what this perfume reminds of. It reminds me of Estee Lauder's White Linen or White Linen Breeze maybe. I love White Linen. Can't figure out why I haven't purchased it in a while though. Hmmm
    Diva is fartin in your perfume mist before you walk through it!! Walk slow and let it marinate......
