    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..."

    It's another Feminite Du Bois morning.
    I have ordered a sample of the new Lutens version to compare,
    but I am still peeved they had to mess with the original and make
    it more expensive, of course.The bottle was so cool as well.

    Good Morning! It's been unseasonably warm and muggy here. So last night I went to bed wearing the charming Strawberry Flowers (by Fresh), one of my "summer scents". After my shower, this will be my SotD.

    Switching from Opoponax (Sweet Myrhh) to Myrhh, her bookish older sister with Keiko Mecheri Myrrh Et Merveilles. More serious and less fuzzy, but all the more appealing for it. This one has a little too much white musk in for me (I blame The Body Shop, I've never got over my White Musk loathing), but it's nice and biting.

    Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel

    top notes: galbanum, petitgrain, neroli, bergamot, lemon
    middle notes: violet, rose, narcissus, mimosa, iris, sage, geranium
    base notes: cedarwood, vetiver, oakmoss, tonka bean, almond

    A beautifully dry violet with a great warm drydown. One of my best buys - ten bucks at Marshalls! Smells a lot more spendy than that. One must keep its considerable potency in mind, but still, applied with restraint it's a wonderful fragrance, ahead of its time.

    Best to all!

    Luscious Hypnotic Poison. I purchase the 1 oz squat red apple bottle from Sephora's and I must say I love the spray nozzle. It gives a very smooth and satisfying squirt. Some may think this sounds crazy but I know you folks will understand me completely. The simple pleasures in life. Have a fabulous day.

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."

    Guerlain's Arsène Lupin Voyou. "Voyou" is French for "a rascal", and typical of sweetly smiling Guerlain it's the most benign sense of the word that is presupposed: the brisk and spontaneous kind of guy, slightly simpleminded perhaps, but so handsome, genuine and affectionate that you can't help falling in love with him. The fragrance's head has the tonic ambrosial attraction found in all Jean-Paul Guerlain's great masculines, and feminines for that matter, a perfectly stimulating harmony of bitter orange, so immensely more charismatic and dry than its sweet counterpart, mugwort, coriander and pink pepper that immediately hints at the warm wood down below, all in all smelling like new-felled forest timber and bright autumn days. Then rose, so worshipped by Jean-Paul Guerlain, controlling the orange fruit with a mild and cool sweetness. The base is made up of luxurious sandalwood, benzoin and patchouli, aromatic and fine like incense smoke. Reprising the cold-warm contrasts of Coriolan and Bois d'Arménie, the drydown is engaging and badly addictive, with an effect between caramelized leather and mannish wood turpentine. So why those cotton-soft white musks? They work as fixative in nearly all newer Guerlains, and they do it well, but they also prevent the voice from becoming very deep and hoarse (remember Derby?), which is not quite what you would expect from a rascal. But, it's forgivable when the rascal is as charming as Arsène Lupin Voyou is: if Chamade pour Homme was meant to smell anything like Chamade for men, this could have been it.

    Was working all day yesterday, without even a chance to check BN during my lunchbreak or at night.

    As a result, slept in and woke up at 7 today.

    Petra, I liked them Cat's Tongues.
    Jacona, loved your SotD yesterday, from YR.

    It's warm and humid here, 83 F, and the sky is dark & ominous looking, but it just sprinkles a bit, the sun comes out, and then it goes gray again. Very odd. It sure doesn't feel like late October, but that's Virginia is what the natives tell me.

    I'm wearing Estee Lauder Pleasures.

    I hope Ineespenes and anybody else feeling unwell gets better soon.

    Love to all.

    Second that to ineespenes... feel better!

    And it looks like pomander's having a "typical Actias luna scent schizophrenia (or more precisely) scent multiple personalities day" ... I started today in my Bulgari Black/Bandit layering and am now in my newest FB Dune + a sample of a musky natural, Artemisia Natural Perfume's Drifting Sparks.

    Unsure yet about Dune but after having sampled a small "Dior Poison Family Primer set" from LGD, can definitely smell the Dior signature here. It's a pre-reformulation EDT (orange box with black band at bottom and Dior logo in gold-framed oval). I also know that someone from my past probably wore this scent, is very familiar to me.

    Tommy Bahama for Men tonight
    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old. Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    with dreams untold..--Twilight Time

    Late to the party. We went to see my sister-in-law (some of you will remember that she had a heart transplant last week). She is looking great! It is like magic. :-)

    I wore a discreet amount of Micallef Black Sea. It is so beautiful! I'm topping it off for bed.
