    I'm glad it's synchronised Dominique Ropion day because he is one of my favourite perfumers.

    Today I'm in the sublime Carnal Flower.

    TGIF!!

    Dominique Ropion's

    CoSTUME NATIONAL HOMME


    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..."

    Ooh - Roberto, that smells nice to me!

    Ropinon must be the nose of the month for me, Ive been doing Accenti, some Anglomania and the favourite of this chilly autumn here - Soir de Lune. So I go for that one today aswell. The other day a coworker actually asked that a meeting should be held in my office, because "it smells so nice there". (Note to self: watch out, dont overapply...)

    Not just a name day, Sophi, it is like celebrating your own personal Patron Saint, the second birthday of sorts. Right? More wisdom to us all from St.Sophia.

    Ropion day.... Hmmmm..... Nothing really to wear or write home about. Not at the moment, although I did have fun with his creations. Used to. Oh well.

    Will wear Shiloh then for a casual Friday.

    Also, please remember Neil Morris' birthday tomorrow.

    middle notes: rose otto, nutmeg, violet

    Have a lovely Friday, all!

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    I started the day with Mitsouko extrait but I will wear Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur this evening to tip my hat to a very talented perfumer indeed! He shows such impressive range. Safari was one of my favourites back in the day (though I famously got 'told off' by a sales assistant in a posh department store because 'it's not for blondes').

    I have only two samples of Ropion fragrances to choose from: Carnal Flower (thanks, Mimi!) and Jungle L'Elephant, neither of which I can wear this early in the day, but I will pick one for later this evening. It's a shame that's all I have because, reading through his list of creations, it appears I'm a fan and have worn a few in the past. I'm very much looking forward to trying Acqua di Gioa.

    This morning I'm sampling some vintage Coty L'Aimant flacon mist - which I presume is a cologne formulation. It's not really wearable (for me), but it's fun to sample it at home alone when I can spray without annoying my husband. I can see why people compare it to No. 5. Later, I'll probably wear something suburban and safe as SotD like Pleasures or Pure White Linen to go about my casual Friday.

    TGIF!

    p.s. Best wishes to Sophi! (I want a name day, too!)

    Miss Dior today, because I'm feeling chypre and cheerful.
    Also, I'm getting on a plane later, so I wanted to keep it as low-key as possible while still wearing a definite scent.

    Have a good one y'all. I plan to have a screaming lou-lou of a weekend, at a family wedding with my lovely warm, Welsh cousins.

    sophi - wishing you a very joyful Onomastiki eorti!

    Y'all have a great day!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Happy Second Birthday Sophi!

    I'm having a bit of a Duchaufourfest, with Avignon up front and centre, Dzhongka to the left and Baume Du Doge to the right. The first hour was great, but now they aren't playing well at all. My poor beloved Avignon is quivering under the assault from a bag of wilting vinegary bitter salad on the left and a melted rancid chocolate bar on the right. Hope this cold goes soon!
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
