    EAU DES ÎLES

    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    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..."

    Donna Karan Chaos, old bottle of the original 1996 version. I've been extremely lucky and scored another older, full bottle at a fleamarket in addition to the half-full one I bought in the late 90's, so I should really wear this one more.

    I’m trying my latest ebay purchase, Emeraude pdt, which arrived yesterday…

    (This pic is from the Muse in Wooden Shoes blog review here...http://museinwoodenshoes.wordpress.c...coty-emeraude/, my bottle looks just like it)

    I think it’s from the 70s, and oh my! It’s gorgeous! At first I thought it was shot, but it isn't - you have to wait 20 minutes or so for the beauty to appear. And then it just keeps getting good.

    I'm in a luxurious cloud of sandalwood, thanks to a bit of Bois des Iles vintage parfum plus a spritz of the current edt - the result is just unbelievably beautiful.

    I'm still rocking Andy Tauer's Un Rose Chypree, which I bought on Friday. Loving it - very rich and deep, on me not a lot of rose but a thick and sensuous oakmoss base that just says 'warm, loved, skin' to me. Like it sooooo much.
