    Wearing the manly scents today.
    Sampling Mem-made English Leather for now.
    May turn to Creed Aventus later.
    There's a hint of Burberry for men (version #2, 1992) in the air, because that's what I sprayed at the cat to get him off the kitchen table this morning.
    Both the Burberry and the English Leather were left by our exiting tenant. Anybody who'll cover the postage can have them if they like.

    A shame … but what a sense of comfort for I whose skin can make scents run afowl. Tested a scent yesterday that progressed this way on me: (top note) salami, (heart note) rubber adhesive, (base note) menthol.

    Oops...totally forgot about s'n's My sotd was Mitsouko. Been to work and afterwards I went to see Nosferatu with a live Black metal band as the soundtrack. Not as extreme as it sounds really.Very dark , but symphonic music. Bumped into an old aquaintance so hanged out before the movie a bit. All in all a good day

    Those are curious smells to be juxtaposed together!

    My skin is a frag black hole/sponge. Even the strongest concentrations last barely 4 hours on me, if that!

    Talking about Opium, I just managed to snag a half-full(or half-empty) vial for £2.25. Looks like there's about 4 ml of parfum in the atomiser.From the same seller of the 30ml Mitsouko EDT.

    Auction here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260655587732

    In all probability, I can look forward to some Opium-filled days in a fortnight or so!

    D., do not feel bad about your Shalimar, it is always like this on me too -- the more concentrated, the worse.

    Dud scents also work as ant spray. I knew a lady, an apartment manager, whose nickname was Charlie. Of course she was gifted will numerous bottles of that scent. If one of the tenants complained about ants she would hand them a bottle from her stash and say "try this first, if it doesn't work we'll call pest control" Never had to.

    Well it's an 82 degree day here (we always finally get summer in Sept here), so I thought my planned Habit Rouge would be to heavy. Stayed with Maison Guerlain and went for a frag with no leather Coriolan EDT. The bottle is so clever, too.
    I may have overapplied, as my voice just lowered an octave. Seriously, this is fine juice.

    TOP Lemon tree leaves, Bergamot

    Notes per perfume intelligence database:

    September 1998; created by Jean-Paul Guerlain, a woody masculine chypre edt with top notes of lemon, lavender, cardamom and artemisia, heart notes of violet, rose, anise and jasmine on base notes of patchouli, vetiver, styrax and castoreum.

    Nothing smells right today... I dabbed on La Rose de Rosine on my wrist but had to scrub it off.

    Tried Calanques on my other wrist, had to scrub that off too!

    Sprayed Mimosa Pour Moi on chest and ...you guessed it... I think I needed a perfume-free day.

    This afternoon we went to see the excellent "Impossible Reality" exhibit of M. C. Escher's works at the New Britain Museum of American Art. There are 130 works borrowed from the Herakleidon Museum in Athens.

    I highly recommend taking time to see this exhibit; it's definitely one of the ones our family has enjoyed most over our years as members. Here is a link to a description of current exhibits, including the Escher one:
    http://www.nbmaa.org/index.php?optio...d=32&Itemid=56

    Escher was Dutch, not American, so I'm not exactly sure why they are displaying his art but hey, I'm not complaining!

    I'm using the gender-bender Sniff 'n' Speak as an excuse to pull out my sample of Guerlain Derby (big thanks again to Primrose for sharing this!). My comment that I posted elsewhere when I first tried it: "Oh, my – it's gorgeous! Refreshing top, subtle leather, classy well-blended woods and moss, and a wonderful – I mean wonderful – vetiver drydown."



    Notes for Derby, as listed in the BN Directory, include Bergamot, Lemon, Artemisia, Peppermint, Pimento, Rose, Pepper, Mace, Jasmin, Leather, Vetiver, Sandal, Patchouli, and Moss.
