    Rain and thunder are raging over Denmark,
    so finally I can get back to my heavier loves,
    and leave those semi-dull fresh frags on the
    shelf. How I could forget the power of this
    fragrance for so many years is beyond me,
    it's more than beautiful. And back to stay!

    KNIZE FOREST

    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..."

    Aha, great minds think alike today with a couple of heavy hitters. I chose Dior's Poison, as it just felt like nothing but a sillage monster would do. I know you think Poison is glorious too.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Haunani, talk to me about Miller Harris Fleurs de Sel. I know it's a fave of yours. The heated stench of the first few minutes on my wrists is almost more than I can bear. It's just me, isn't it?



    I've sampled FdS before (the perfume, not the feminine hygiene spray of the same initials) and cowered. Last night, in a fit of bravery, I applied some to the top of my hand and held on for dear life. After 20 minutes of an unpleasant smell of black pepper burning on red-hot iron, I began to catch glimpses of a gorgeous floral, as long as I didn't get my nose too close to my skin where the burning smell smoldered on.

    I know I'm very sensitive to spices or anything that connotes heat in scent, so I'm curious what others' perceptions are about the top notes of FdS or to hear your guesses as to what note is registering so hot in my nose. Thanks, Peeps.

    Notes: rosemary, thyme, clary sage, angelica; iris, rose and narcissus; leather, amber, oakmoss and vetiver.

    P.S.
    Sophi, wow, wow, wow, what an image!

    DSH's perfume essense oil "Egyptian Musk." more sillage and-or projection than most perfume oils. Bought several samples on her website; trying out her line of "skin scents." they are beautiful! This one seems a tiny bit cinnamin like

    I have a few Diptyque samples to try so I started off with L'Eau on my left hand. Acch! Cloves and cinnamon. Terrible. I'll give it to hubby to try for fun but if he wears it, I hope it won't be around me!

    Then I sprayed Do Son on my right hand. Definitely a tuberose, with some green notes and orange blossom. Turns a bit powdery after 45 minutes or so. I will say this: if you are a fan of tuberose, make the effort to try this one. I generally find tuberose cloying; this one is not cloying, because it's less sweet-- but I still don't want to wear it again. It's headed to my give away pile.

    When it wears off a bit more, I'll put on something more familiar. I'm done experimenting for the day, LOL.

    30roses sorry to hear that L'eau didn't like you... I love its cloves/cinnamon overload, though I confess it's more than I could deal with in this heat and humidity.

    On Sunday, I went to a place called Essence in Boston, and using a coupon I made an essential oil custom blend! It was FUN... And a complete surprise to me that I fell in love with their night-blooming jasmine EO. I am generally white-flower phobic, as they often go brown, waxy and funereal on my skin - But this one held its deliciousness steady throughout a prolonged skin test. So my custom blend, which I've nicknamed OWL (for "Outing With Laura" a lovely friend who not only accompanied me but landed me the discount!), is my SoTD.

    OWL notes: A delicious and surprsingly light combo of white tea, night blooming jasmine, and Tunisian frankincense. Yum!
    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
