    Thumbs up SOTD Tuesday 17 August 2010

    Fantastic Tuesday everyone. Good Morning

    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..."

    Good morning! I'm sampling Byredo's Pulp today -- super tart, tart, tart blackcurrant. I like it better than the first time I tried it - maybe tart blackcurrants are growing on me.

    Hmm... come to think of it, that sounds a bit painful, doesn't it?

    Have a great Tuesday!

    I just took a call I was expecting. The son and business heir to a publisher I've been working for since 1992 called to relate that his dad finally succumbed to cancer yesterday. Don't go crazy with condolences, my dears. My heart isn't broken to bits. It's just time for reflection, and I don't want to associate any particular fragrance with this passage, so I'll sniff and dab samples for now, and cry not for myself but for the wife of 44 years who was R’s partner since high school. R believed “you leave the dance with the one what brung you.”

    SOTD: Prada Infusion d'Iris EDP


    Hey, perhaps I should do a board search or start a thread, but do any of you know the difference (if any) between this EDP and the new EDT? The notes sound very different for the Infusion d'Iris EDT (vs. the EDP, which is a lovely incense-y iris). Here's the blurb from Neiman's website:

    "Inspired by the search for the scent of the iris flower, the fresh and floral Infusion d'Iris Eau de Toilette combines delicate lily of the valley, powdery violet, sensual cedar, and the Italian memories of clean, ironed linen.

    Fragrance notes: Iris pallida, muget, galbanum essence, heliotrope
    "

    I was in Kenzo Power AGAIN for work today. I just love it! Why is the drydown so appealing? Why? The whole movement of the scent is perfect, I love it from first note to last.

    This evening, I'm testing this for the second time:



    Notes according to LuckyScent are yuzu, rose japonica, jasmine, littoral moss, hinoki, and musk. I think it's fantastic. I've tested all four of Keiko Mecheri's new fragrances now, and Les Nuits d'Izu and Taormine are my favourites. Mulholland I found rather conventional, and I didn't care for Tarifa at all. Taormine reminded me of Dune, but it's been a while since I wore Dune so I'd need to wear them side by side to be sure of any real similarity. LNd'I has gone straight onto my wishlist. And I have to say, all four have the most amazing drydowns.

    I'm looking at the most gorgeous summer evening rainbow. Nice night.

    Happy birthday, Evangeline!

    I am in my favorite layering combo ever, equal parts of Bandit and Bulgari Black... it gets nice comments, that it both smells good and has "character" (in a good way)... so happy I had the brainstorm to combine those two!
