    Thumbs up Re: SOTD Monday 6th July, 2010

    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'm wearing Vanuatu sandalwood oil, and really enjoying it, but I think it may have International Sate Line molecules in it that have impacted my time space continuum interface, because I am still having the 5th of July, although the thread title says the 6th.

    I don't participate in time zones, and maybe those molecules have taken it personally, because the International Date Line has always considered itself to be, you know, so special and all...

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in La Perla's Parfum Privé again, a luminous and beautiful "chypre" from 1997. To my nose it's really more of a rosey floral with a green edge, but I suppose there is a certain chypre-y "perfumey-ness" to it... pefectly gorgeous, at any rate. Parfum Privé feautures clementine, magnolia, sandalwood, musk, orchid, freesia, osmanthus, rose hip, vetiver and ylang-ylang.







    Y'all have a great day!

    Vintage Eau de Toilette




    OMG! Just bought a bottle of the vintage juice a couple of weeks ago,
    and my oh my, this is miles ahead of the thin, watered down modern one.
    This is the Ysatis I fell in love with years and years ago. Deee-licious!

    A second day in TDC Sel de Vetiver.

    I was hoping for a quiet morning on the front porch, given that it's a spill-over holiday here in the U.S., but the roadbuilders must be trying to put down some highway somewhere while traffic is reduced, so asphalt-laden dump trucks, with all wheelsets deployed, are rumbling by with regularity.

    Quiet is a rare commodity here, living next to a quarry that dynamites regularly and which also has asphalt-recycling and stone-crushing facilities. Their maintenance and repair shop is our nearest neighbor, and some kind of machinery can often be heard beep-beep-beeping backing up. We're a half mile from an airport which, when I was a child, was quaintly festooned with a windsock and marked by a long row of parked planes, including biplanes, anchored by tie-downs cinched by their owners, but now launches corporate jets. A four-lane highway and a river are all that separates us from a freight line’s railroad spur, whose rumbling stock, dieseling locomotives, and singing horns actual inspire a kind of nostalgia most of the time. But even on the quietest Sunday morning, the low-grade roar from Interstate 94, just a half mile to the north, deducts from the whir of a dragonfly’s fluttering wings. (Sigh.) Around here, a severe snowstorm applying its road-blocking, acoustical blanket is a blessing … until the snowplows begin scraping iron against roadway.

    All this is to say to those of you who have access to quiet: Appreciate your blessings.

    Miss Charming, Juliette Has a Gun. I love it. Rose, patchouli, and musks. It's my go-to happy fragrance in the winter. Curiously, I'm finding something icy in it today, despite the patchouli. Do rose fragrances ever catch anybody else like this? I've noticed it with a few others, too, Mille et Une Roses in particular. It actually made my nose feel cold!

    This morning I'm in Fresh Lemon Sugar. It is my single most complimented fragrance. Who knew?! It's lasting power is awful, so this afternoon I'll switch to Nicolai's Fig Tea, one of my favorite tea scents. That scent ALSO has terrible longevity, so I'll be able to mix it up tonight if I want....we'll see!

    Giving L'Heure Bleue another chance this morning...but alas, so far the opening isn't catching me. I'll let it run through its notes before I say "oh well, not for me..." but it's headed that direction. It really does smell like a "compacted" version of Mitsuoko's sweeter notes and powder on the start, but not in a good way on me. So far. (I had a Basenotes Hourly Time-Out and applied a little more of L'Heure Bleue, used the sample up. I am "getting it" now, but it's not different enough on my skin than Mitsuoko, which is not as sweet. Ah well, as I say, another one I don't HAVE to buy!

    Oh, cathodera, you made me laugh with your time zone geeky humor! (I think time zones are mad at me too, I keep many of my clocks set 10 minutes ahead of the "real" time and I think it sets their timezone teeth on edge)

    And petruccijc... if the scent is half as yummy/intense as the model in the ad... RAWR! (did I just 'rawr'? Seems so!)

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful day... my Sunday is starting out lazy...yaawwwnnnn.....zzzzzz.

    And mel_lou ... I'll have to try out my Miss Charming sample and see if there's any iciness to that rose. Sounds intriguing! (also sounds like a good way to start my truncated work week tomorrow.)

    Le Grand Duc and Evangeline, you two are naughtily making me want to find a vintage Ysatis!

    And Quarry (this post just keeps getting longer at each edit!) ... I know what you mean about loud, though I don't live next to a quarry I'm half a mile from the railroad track (probably the railroad was the reason Norman Oklahoma became a town so the old town is set parallel to the track, while the rest of the town is on a NSEW grid)... and there's a body shop and several tire shops/auto services on the main street a block away, so it's rarely REALLY quiet here. Funny though how some of the sounds get filtered once you're used to them, the trains used to wake me up, now I don't even notice 'em.

    Go for it, my love. It's fairly easy to get a hold on.
    Just make sure it has the cap like the one in my
    picture, and the name 'Ysatis de Givenchy', and not
    like this one here below, with the new shorter name
    and new cap.
    It's seriously water compared ... seriously!
