    Today I'm Kewart's scent twin in Citizen Queen. This is soooo delicious....

    We got back yesterday from smokey Mountains in North Carolina where we attended a niece's wedding. It was so lovely there -- 75, sunny during the days, cool at night... I wore Chanel Bois des Iles to the afternoon wedding, and it felt just right, dressy but not too... (the only down side to the trip was no AT&T reception in that area! There we were with 2 iphones and one ipad and no signal! So, no basenotes....)

    Guerlain's Parfum des Champs-Elysées, a floral leather chypre introducing the pastel-grey melancholy of Après L'Ondée's violet-iris-heliotrope, but based on a dry mossy-leathery core of rain-soaked tree bark. Handsome!

    Guido Reni, 1575-1642
    Eau d'Italie-Paestum Rose
    Somewhat dry, this scent echos its namesake in Italy.
    I imagine it to be sunny, warm and mellow,
    although I have never been;
    cool in the dusty shadows.

    Like a sumptuous tapestry, the perfume unfolds.
    The scent of the rose is slowly revealed
    from the depths of many colors.
    Pepper and coriander, peony and currant buds;
    flowers and spices amuse and bewilder.
    Traveling through time with this delightful elixir.

    Paestum Rose was created by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour
    and is designated as a unisex scent.
    The notes include davana, cinnamon, black pepper, pink pepper,
    coriander, black currant buds, Turkish rose, peony, incense,
    osmanthus, elemi, tea, papyrus, benzoin, myrrh, opoponax,
    vetiver, patchouli, cedar, wenge wood, amber and white musk.

    Hello! I haven't posted for a while but wanted to swing by and say "hi." Hope everyone is doing well and to those who observe, Happy Rosh Hashanah.

    Kumquat, lovely picture and words. Nostalgie, perfect pick. I should have worn my Africanimal.

    SotD: After obsessively wearing Delrae Mythique for days, I switched to OJ Ta'if. I had forgotten how lovely the almost chewy opening is--rose, dates, patchouli, and a bit of bright orange. It's still a bit too warm here for Ta'if, but that's O.K.

    Also, if anyone has sniffed Yves Rocher Vanille Noir yet, please let me know what you think here or on the separate thread.

    Cheers!

    Terre d'Hermes today. (busy, busy, busy again. Wishing for the fiscal year to be over and done with.)

    I guess the upside to busy is that I never even notice BN was down.

    So... woohoo!
