    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..."

    Guerlain's Mitsouko PdT. With a little help from modern chemistry, the hedione molecule isolated from jasmine, the PdT from 1987 managed to add power without compromising on seriousness

    Good Morning to the New World!

    Smell Bent Prairie Nymph. Really lovely citrus and honey. Just citrus and honey on me but smells so good, simple and perfect.

    This also has the distinction of being the scent that is the longest-lasting I've found. Not on me, though it's long lasting even on me, by that I mean "all day", not into the night Maybe 8-10 hours. But the 4 year old daughter asked for it one day so I sprayed her and 3 days later it was still smellable, and identifiable. Remarkable. And potent; we've been working the 4ml travel spray for months, most scents I have to apply kind of a lot but not the Prairie Nymph. Just a dab'll do ya.

    Thanks to a divine friend, SOTD is Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Jasminora. It is a fresh green floral, bright and sparkly but soft, not sharp. It's beautiful. It has a couple of notes that usually give me trouble (galbanum, LOTV) but they are working well for me in this blend. Normally I'm not one to wear frags by season but this one feels exactly right for this time of year and I can already see it getting a lot of play in the coming months.

    top notes: galbanum, bergamot, cyclamen
    heart notes: Calabrian jasmine, freesia, lily of the valley
    base notes: musk, amber

    Best to all!

    Feminite du Bois for me today. I seem to remember it being quite popular here 5+ years ago (back when it was put out by Shiseido), which inspired me to try it, and I quite enjoy it although I don't seem to wear it so much anymore. There is a pronounced dip in the liquid level of the bottle though, so clearly it was a successful purchase.

    After traveling all of last week (for work and pleasure), it's nice to be back on BN. Happy belated birthday to RHM and all of the other birthday celebrations I missed, and happy birthday to those celebrating today.

    Yesterday was the lovely Annick Goutal Songes (I so love that jasmine!) and today, for a warm-ish, humid but threatening gray morning, I went with Tubereuse Criminelle. I am ALL about the Big White Florals this spring and early summer, it seems.

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
