ointments and perfume delight the heart....
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..."

Guerlain's Vetiver - a most wonderful 2002 edition I found in Corsica. It seems that the green juice version has been changed as often as Mitsouko has in the last ten years...

SotD: Eau D'Italie - Paestum Rose
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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...

Chanel Coromandel (2007) Jacques Polge Woody Oriental
•Notes: Pepper, Frankincense, Patchouli, Benzoin, Leather, Woods, Orange Peel, Spice, Dry Amber, Vanilla
Quite remarkable as a woody oriental, with spice and a hint of leather. It is rather dense, complex at first, but ends in a patchouli-oriental-woody drydown. The name suggests the famous carved and lacquered Chinese screens which were transshipped to Europe from treaty ports, such as the British Fort St. George and the French Pondicherry, along the Coromandel Coast of southeastern India (parts of the current states of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu). Apparently there were some such screens at the apartments of Coco Chanel, and according to the firm's blurb, these made her "faint with happiness." I suppose the woods in the fragrance represent the screens, and the patchouli and spices are meant to evoke the mysteries of India. If you ask me, this is one of the best of the Exclusifs de Chanel line.
Yr good bud,
