    Guerlain's Vol de Nuit old Parfum, spicy-resinous-earthy and darkly aromatic like the inside of an old mahogany closet. It's powdery to a near-carnal degree, and very tenacious.

    Many happy returns to Riannon!

    I was planning to wear Coromandel again today, as yesterday, but then considered a different Chanel to stay with the house but ring a change. I couldn't make up my mind, and eventually decided I wasn't in the mood to tolerate the topnotes of the Chanels in my wardrobe.

    So here I am in TEA FOR TWO , by perfumer Olivia Giacobetti for l'Artisan.

    Notes include smoky tea, woods, spices, ginger and honey, cinnamon, green anise.

    Now this has topnotes I could live with all day. Fortunately it gets even better, so I'm in for a treat as the day goes on. Why don't I wear this more often? A BNer whose name escapes me used to have a signature which read 'So many perfumes, so little skin.'

    And why do I always think TforT is by Patricia de Nicholai? The best time I've had on Basenotes was when we did the month of women perfumers a couple of years ago. I managed to wear a different woman perfumer every day for a month, and sometimes more than one, and it was a blast. I have a spreadsheet to remind what I wore and by whom it was created, which is just as well.

    I'm so happy to be back in one of my favourites! The weather has cooled, the light has changed, the leaves are beginning to turn. I'm in 24, Faubourg and it's glorious. Orange blossom and honey and jasmine and amber and all good things.

    Have a good one, all!

    Happy Wednesday
    Happy Birthday to RIANNON



    Yesterday it was a surprised day for me!!I received a package ,out of the blue ,containing many decants and samples!
    It came from Atlanta GA,and includes many samples of Insence series mostly I am not aware of the sender...but he/she make me so happy
    Today i wear Comme des Garcons Insence Zagorsk:This is an oriental woody one
    Zagorsk is light, a bit melancholic fragrance, the smell of Russian monasteries placed in endless snowy Russian planes, the odor of light birch and dark pine tree woods, and northern red forest fruits. The main notes of this composition are white frankincense, pine tree, red hot chilly pepper, violet, cedar, iris, Hinoki cypress and birch.

    Happy Birthday Riannon!

    Sestra, I think that quote is in VM_I_hate_civet's sig.

    My sample trawl continues with Bigarade Concentree. I still prefer the shorter-lived Cologne Bigarade, but it's nice to get a blast of orange through my cold.

    Happiest of birthdays to our Dutch Dragonlady! Big kisses and stroopwafels to you!

    I am in the glorious skankorama that is Miller Harris L'Air de Rien today. No school, so no embarrassing moments when picking up Small and wafting around the aroma equivalent of 'the walk of shame'. This is a 'take me now!' fragrance if ever I smelled one. Hoorah! And it's a sunny day.

    So I'm off to do the laundry while smelling like I'd rather be off in a haystack with Johnny Depp. (Well, yeah! I can dream.)

    Oh by the way, yesterday I sampled Belle d'Opium and almost cried. How can they even hint that this very average thing is related to the great and glorious O?

    For my favorite Dragon Day of the year -- Lalique Le Parfum, she knows why. Neither Jicky, nor Hadrien Noir is currently present among my decants.

    Would your Dragon Highness show up more often on the boards, or you need a special invitation engraved in gold and beads? Consider it done! And I pray thee: say to me not nay.

    Today I'm continuing what I started last night and sampling the Gorilla perfumes samples Pia generously sent me, and jotting down my impressions for a later blog post. Right now I have Cocktail on my left wrist and B Scent on my right.
