Thread: SOTD Tuesday 31 August 2010
Good Morning everyone. A fantastic Tuesday

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 wearing
Eau de Pamplemousse Rose by Jean Claude Ellana for Hermes.
I believe the eponymous Pamplemousse Rose refers to Pink Grapefruit rather than floral rose. I can't pick up any floral rose myself, and the only notes I can find mentioned in reviews are lemon, pink grapefruit and rhubofix (green rhubarb). For an Ellana cologne this is lasting well on me, i.e. I sprayed it almost 3 hours ago and it is still fresh and very much in evidence. The sparkle has slightly calmed down, but I can still pick up its lively citrus character. I love it.
Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
Byredo Gypsy Water
(Used a drop of Ava Luxes Incense Rose last evening, still smell the incense of that mixed with the SOTD, interesting (in a positive way))
Have a good Tuesday everybody!

I look forward to a cooler weather...
Update on my SotD:
Now that my Eau de Pamlemousse Rose has been on for 7.5 hours I can confirm that it certainly does have a floral rose drydown. It is close to skin as you would expect from Hermes/Ellena, but I can smell it perfectly. Genius.

Wearing Hypnotic Poison.
Have a nice day everyone.
After a night of tornado warnings and bad weather, just want something clean, fresh and quiet. So today I'm wearing Clean Outdoor Shower Fresh by Clean. Have a great day!

Un Jardin Après La Mousson by Hermès. I've been wearing this a lot over summer but wasn't sure how it would hold up as we move into Autumn. Turns out, pretty nicely so far. The spices have amped up, making it all green and gingery. Very glad I got the big bottle :)
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Clinique Aromatics Elixir. I recently bought a 10ml bottle of the parfum spray, can see a larger bottle in my not too distant future, I think I will wear this a lot in the fall. It's gorgeous.

Today I am in...
Amouage Opus II:
Perfumer: Michele Saramito of Robertet
Notes: Lavender, Absinthe, pepper, pink bay, Jasmine, rose, cinnamon, cardamom, Cedarwood, patchouli, amber, musk, incense
I must say that I am overwhelmed after having tested Opus II. It is a magnificent, beautiful fougere. In short, it smells something like a cross between Rive Gauche PH and Fou d’Absinthe, the two not blended together but instead a new formula inspired by the two, created with an unlimited budget and blended by God himself.
The notes of Opus II may sound generic but are woven together with such careful precision and subtlety that they literally dance on the skin in an olfactory equivalent of the glimmering iridescent display of light dancing across a most exquisite piece of abalone. This is a fragrance that is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.
You know that feeling of magic that sometimes washes over you during the winter season? There is an utter, almost eerie, stillness in the air, and all the earth is asleep, and the quiet and solitude do not leave you feeling alone so much as they magnify your own sense of self, your own awareness of life and existence? The way we rush from the car into the houses of friends and families to escape the bitter cold, and are met with the wonderful scent of chai tea, cinnamon sticks and apple cider, christmas trees, bay leaves and mistletoe. The warmth of friendship. All of that; all of the wonderful and beautiful elements of winter have seemingly been distilled. That is Opus II.
Yes, truly a wonderful fougere that shimmers and floats above the skin, and will remind you, if you are so inclined to listen, that magic really does still exist.
I've got more info, including a more detailed note breakdown in the thread I made about this scent, here, in case you are interested: http://http://www.basenotes.net/thre...al-Impressions
The hues and tones of the scent remind me of the colors (and to an extent, the mood and atmosphere) present in these two pictures:
