Eau de Toilette
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..."

Happy Tuesday everyone!
For day 4 of my 21 samples in 21 days project ( http://www.basenotes.net/entries/129...-my-sample-box )I'm wearing Bond No 9 New Haarlem, which keeps reminding me of Un Bois Vanille in its woody vanilla-ness. I do like the coffee note very much.
Cuir de Lancome
I love it!!
Guerlain's Chant d'Arômes Parfum. Despite the hushed character of Chant d'Arômes, its (now rather rare) Parfum version has a good deal of chypre potency: Lots of oakmoss and vetiver down below, a severe white-flower heart, and compact mandarin up top that lasts and lasts.
Wearing Versace ED Parfum
A blend of soft and fresh flowers is dedicated to a woman of a new millennium. Top notes include a freshness of the morning dew along with purple wisteria and tropical, succulent guava and white lilacs. Its heart is composed of wet and translucent flowers; Angel Wing jasmine, lotus flowers, orchid and azaleas. The drydown is built of vetiver, cedarwood and musk. The package suggests innocence and warmth of the scent. The elegant bottle texture is clean and clear, as the fragrance is. Bottle stopper features a frosted crystal Versace Medusa image on each side with her mesmerizing ancient Greek motive.

"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

Good morning everyone!
Today's the orientation for students entering high school, and my daughter was up early getting ready. I think she's turned the corner from being nervous to just being excited.
Changed my mind-- I'm still feeling like roses. Not Jour de Fête after all, but Ce Soir Ou Jamais.

SummerbyKenzo today. Have a great one everybody.
I can't seem to get enough roses these days, either - I'm continuing to indulge my passion for them in the rich and velvety but clear and bright red roses of Lorenzo Villoresi's Donna.
I always loved this time of year as a kid, 30 Roses - I can imagine her excitement, and I can almost smell the new school supplies!
Y'all have a wonderful day!
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

Cloaked in a comforting cocoon of green delight;
I embark on a cool new day.
Rain has come and the temperatures are falling.
