    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..."

    Morning, all! Been a while. I've been enjoying my L'eau d'Ambre a lot, but this morning I went out for an early pre-breakfast run and felt like something fresher. Hence:



    I love the feeling this gives me at work. It does indeed make me feel powerful. But also elegant!

    I reek today!
    I'm trying out a few things, so I have Chanel No 22 in the crook of my right elbow, Cabochard edt (modern) on my right wrist, SJP's Lovely Twilight on my left wrist and Miss Dior edt (modern) in the crook of my left elbow. I'm kind of auditioning perfumes for a wedding I'm going to next month but I'm also deciding what last-minute additions are going to make it into my travel bag for a trip home to Wales to see my Mum and friends. I leave tomorrow for 2 weeks and I have a very healthy stash of perfumes at Mum's already, so it's more a case of checking what I absolutely can't live without for 2 weeks.

    So far, I've decided that I'm leaving Cabochard here and that Chanel 22 is perfect to wear to the wedding. (Other strong contenders are Ormonde Jayne Woman, Frederic Malle's Iris Poudre and Guerlain's Vol de Nuit, though I'm going to have to revisit Nahema.) Just waiting for the musks in the SJP to kick in so I can assess it for the trip home, though it's likely to go just because I'm a ditherer.

    Hope you're having a good day, wherever you are and whatever's on your mind.

    Wearing from a sample :LOUKHOUM Eau POUDREE by Mecheri
    Loukhoum Eau Poudree is a gourmand version of the original Loukhoum perfume. It is charming, powdery and sugary blend of white rose, orris powder, violet leaf, narcissus, candied almond, Madagascar vanilla and crystalline musk.
    I like its sweetness it's like a sugared candy

    Personally I love it but I don't think the salty element is pronounced enough for it to be a hit on the boards. Worth a try though and the bottle is gorgeous!

    I love KM Loukhoum! Maybe this is a "lighter" version, hence the "eau"? I love powdery frags, too. Must try this!

    Hello everyone!

    Sharing the house with sophi, I'm in the delicate and breezy beauty of Keiko Mecheri's White Petals.




    By the way, as another adoring fan of Keiko Mecheri and her Loukhoums, here's my take on them.
    The original Loukhoum is absolutely a gourmand - it's yummy, sticky-sweet and almondy Turkish Delight! Loukhoum eau Poudrée is just a bit sweeter to my nose, maybe more "candied" somehow but not any lighter...and oddly enough, I think Loukhoum is actually more powdery than eau Poudrée, possibly due to Loukhoum's hawthorne note. Then there's the Parfum du Soir - I didn't want to love it, but it's just too gorgeous not to! I find it to be a rosier and more elegant version of the original, although it's still extremely delicious. They're all quite similar, but I think their differences make them each covet-worthy. I'd love to own one of those wonderful boxed sets of all three - that would be heavenly!



    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Etro Ambra. Such a lovely, well balanced amber. Definitely on the sweeter end of the amber scale, yet there's an airiness to it that keeps it out of cloying territory.

    Best to all!

    Testing … 1, 2 … testing …

    Atelier Grand Neroli on the left wrist. The top notes were sweet-orange delish for a short time, and now it's gone boring and a little stinky.
    • Top notes: Moroccan neroli, lemon, Sicilian bergamot, petitgrain
    • Heart notes: Persian galbanum, moss, birch leaves
    • Base notes: clean musk, white amber, vanilla from Madagascar

    Atelier Trefle Pur on the right wrist. I rather like this, and I should given the notes include many favorites, but it's so darn hard to smell! Maybe I'm totally missing the evasive violet.
    • Top notes: bitter orange, cardamon, basilic
    • Heart notes: clover absolute, violet leaves, Tunisian neroli
    • Base notes: patchouli moss, musk

    Meh. At least they're not scrubbers.

    Good evening, everybody. I hope you've all had excellent days. I got home from work and found my package of Gorilla Perfume samples from Lush, so I thought I'd babble through my impressions. Er, because these are my scents of the evening. I reek at the moment!

    Tuca Tuca - Vile violet, it made me nauseous, I had to scrub it off. I like violet, but not this much of it. So sweet and cloying.
    The Smell of Freedom - A disappointment. Neither woody nor spicy on my skin.
    Imogen Rose - Interesting. Reminded me of Tauer's Vetiver Dance - the vetiver accord is strong. I don't get much rose from it. It's initially quite powdery, but that fades. It's not as wild as Vetiver Dance. Good thing? Bad thing? I'm quite fond of Vetiver Dance, it's such a riot, so I guess for me it's a bad thing.
    Karma - But where did it go? Seriously, I just put this on ten minutes ago. Ridiculous.
    Orange Blossom - Pretty but mild. It reminds me of the essential oils I dabbled with as a teenager. Not sure I want to smell like this now.
    Vanillary - I'm really not sure what to do with this one! I like it a lot. It's the smokiest vanilla I've ever smelled, but I love smoky perfumes. I'll probably buy this, it's pleasantly unusual.
    Lust - Another one I'm tempted to buy. Apparently I'm a sucker for jasmine. This is all jasmine, not much wood here. It smells a little skanky to me! But it also reminds me of 24, Faubourg. And Joy. Wow, foolish comparisons, but that's where my brain goes. So I guess Lust isn't all skank.

    Those are my brief, brief thoughts. I'm looking forward to testing these in more depth over the coming days, particularly Vanillary and Lust. But, god, I won't be touching Tuca Tuca again. No way!

    While out at the mall at Farmington, I tried Ninfeo Mio again. Alas, it has that sweet brown sugar/vanilla Yankee kind of candle smell as it dries down. Too bad.

    Had a nice chat with an SA at Sephora named Alex. Alex has over 80 perfumes but was unaware of the niche world of perfumes, or Basenotes, even. Hopefully he'll look us up now.

    Good evening everyone!

    I'm in my mother's vintage Infini parfum tonight. I get my perfumista tendencies from my mom, and we have very similar tastes and wardrobes. She brought me my own bottle of Infini (my first bottle of pure parfum aside from minis) from Paris over thirty years ago...I think I was eight. I swooned, and it's been my favorite Caron ever since.

    So what IS Farnesiana like, dear Haunani? Did I ever mention that I once had a dream about Farnesiana? So ever since then, it's been on my "must sample" list. :P
