    TERRE D’HERMÈS




    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 still up , but it is technically Thursday so I'll post. I'm in some of my newly acquired bottle of
    Guerlain With Love
    Too many of you regular posters said it was good, so I had to seek out, of course. What's not to LOVE? it's a Guerlain.


    Quarry, SMM, Brielle, and everyone else making the trek to Bean-town.

    So excited!
    Just over a week to go till the meet-up.

    Good morning everyone Today I'm very excited about an outdoors festival that takes place at one of the beaches in Tromsø.
    ( www.bukta.no) A friend arranged it so that I ended up on the Guestlist, so didn't have to pay anything and get acess to the backstagearea The weather is not too good though....Cloudy and hopefully it will stay that way, and not rain! This is the perfect day for Chergui, so that is my sotd. Have a nice one all!

    I went to the press evening of our gallery opening Tuesday night and bought Lust, Mark's new jasmine perfume. I'm wearing it today. My favourite jasmine for a long while has been Alien because it's abstract and, well, alien in its strange megaphone-metallic jasmine interpretation.

    After sampling A La Nuit by Serge Lutens and finding it just too flower-vase-y and syrupy, I imagined that I'd never find a really stonking jasmine sent that I'd enjoy. Just about the only soliflores I like are mimosa and orange blossom scents.

    Mark's Flying Fox product perfume for Lush is sickly in my opinion - it's got jasmine and honey in such high quantities that I can't quite live with it.

    This Lust perfume though? Well, when I first sprayed it at the lab, it was really strong and I thought it'd be another Flying Fox experience. A couple of hours later I couldn't stop sniffing my arm. I really really love it.

    Today I'm wearing Dzing!, again (third or fourth day in a row, but who's counting). This is such a great skin scent.

    SOTE last night (since I didn't get on to post) was Possets Silver Carnation. I don't know that you can do better for an inexpensive carnation! It's lovely and only $10.



    SOTD today is Estee Lauder Bali Dream, though I now wish I sprayed something lighter as I woke up with a headache. I do love this one though it's almost identical to Ma Dame (Ma Dame is more juicy & Bali Dream is dry).

    Resurrected an old fave I've ignored for a while: AbdesSalaam Profumo's Oak Moss (which isn't really oak moss). A soft greenie that I think I need to share with flathorn. It smells natural and discreet, generally vegetal, with no other distinct notes poking through. The front end is a little more fun than the drydown.

    Brielle, I was just looking at your smiling, dimpled face at facebook, and I'm completely in love with you. Chaya says she hopes I like hugs. How wonderful a thing to say is that? Envy me more, I get one-on-one travel time with Pomander across countryside which I am studying in advance, courtesy of a Smithsonian natural America guidebook, so I will be able to "read the landscape" and see through time, deciphering what came about after glacial retreat and what is purely the product of European introduction. Ubu, has it been a whole year already? I long to hear your voice again. ComDiva, my special soul friend, I don't think that travel will make me feel any closer to you than I already do, but let's find out. SMM, you are forewarned, I will leave you bruised from heartfelt clutching. Thank you so much for making so many people happy.

    And now, Knit at Night, what will we do with you? You should be banking up some sleep and clearing your desk, but I suspect you'll be skidding into Boston at full gallop. How about that With Love drydown? Soft as baby-chick butt-cheeks, no?

    Mr. G, you keep slaying me with those studio shots. I've worked with good photogs, and I have a high appreciation for this sort of photography, the lighting and composition.

    Duckie, that was one pretty poison froggie. I meant to say that yesters. Ain't evolution the greatest artist?

    The brain is tripping out in happy anticipation of next week. It should be playing Tuca Tuca on endless loop, since I was just getting to know the Lush edition. [Waves to Pia.] Instead, the brain volunteered the following earworm this morning, and now I'm stuck with this manic song playing and stomping around in my head. (I may be crazy, but there's nothing wrong with eyeing Hugh Jackman.)
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Hello dear BNers! Boston weekend sounds like such fun!

    Today is my/our 10th wedding anniversary. My SOTD will be either vintage No. 19 parfum or AG Rose Absolue; DH gave me these FBs as gifts in the last couple of years. Or, perhaps we'll go find a new bottle to celebrate this milestone (Les Exclusifs? L'Heure Bleue? Hm)...

    Have a great day, all!


    ***note added - I just realized that maybe it's a little, um, weird to buy "L'Heure Bleue" to mark a wedding anniversary. Ha!***

    My SoTD is Guerlain Chamadefrom my mini Bee bottle! The guerlainade is a touch problematic for me (as usual), but overall a truly delightful scent.

    Top Notes: Hyacinth, Jasmine.

    Middle Notes: Ylang-Ylang, Blackcurrant bud, Galbanum.

    Base Notes: Vanilla, Woody notes, Balsamic notes.

    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

    Just a quick note to thank dear Haunani, Mimi, Lilybelle, dora, oolala, CRose, G.303, musse, ComDiva, and RHM. (Did I miss anyone?) - Basenoters are such a sweet bunch...

    Lilybelle
    , I LOVE the shadow box. Now I suddenly feel compelled to go out and shop for a lovely little box like that one for our home...

    My SOTD was the No. 19 parfum. We escaped from work at midday to grab lunch at one of our favorite noodle shops (no, not romantic, but something we like to do) & then he accompanied me to L'Occitane where I picked up this pretty Peony EDT...and then helped me pick up the big load of "pre-sale items" from Nordies.

    Thank you all again....looking forward to Guerlain Friday tomorrow!
