    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.

    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.

    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.)

    Azzaro Elixir by Azzaro (first time from a decant - thanks J!)



    Well, the natural scent comparison my nose is making is London for Men by Burberry, but it has a strong ambery base that keeps giving me whiffs similar to Costume National Pour Homme and/or Fahrenheit Absolute minus the oud.

    This, I'm thinking, might smell better on me in the Fall.

Nice blast of rosewood in the top, and a bit of a floriental to the heart.) What a nice scent for an unintended day off, lazing about on the back patio (in the cool breeze break from temps in the 100s) with a sore jaw and under the influence of pain meds!

    Good Evening

    My trip to incense world continues:
    Tonight ,i am testing Incense Series by Comme des Garcons:Quarazate:
    This is an unisex oriental woody but it includes sweet berries and jasmine along with spices and anise!I think,i enjoy this one most of these series

    Ouarzazate (to be pronounced as 'war-za-zat') meaning 'the Desert Fire', is devoted to Islam and named after a small historical town of Ouarzazate in Morroco. Ouarzazate brings the smell of precious sweet and intensive Arabian spices and aromatic desert plants. The fragrance becomes milder on skin. The grassy note of sage, a herb that Morroco is known for, wriggles through the spaces, calming pepper and nutmeg, and opening the space for mysterious frankincense.

    Still working my way through some birthday samples - this evening a third wearing of Chanel's Bois des Iles. I am on to something here, after a year of intense trials and many, many errors, I am finally honing into what works for me. This one is special, and a full bottle will be mine shortly. I'm not one for searching for vintage anything, but I could very well do some searching for all concentrations and incarnations of this one scent. This one makes me rethink everything.
