    Good morning! I'm wearing Aromatics Elixir and probably killing people with sillage, I happened to apply one spray more than usual this morning. I smell gorgeous, though!

    GUERLAIN
    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..."

    Last week I wore Laliques Encre Noir. Today I'm wearing the girlie version -

    ENCRE NOIR POUR ELLE edp

    My nose is not sure what is going on with this, but it is rather pleasant; beautifully blended, it is a silky fragrance which is sitting close to my skin despite a spray or two more than I usually apply of any scent. I want to smell more of it so waft my clothes now and then to get a whiff of what I suspect is loveliness. The perfumer is Christine Nagel, so it has quite a pedigree. I can forgive her now for Cartier Delices and Jo Malone's Pear and Fresia. On the other hand she created Theorema, so I kiss the hem of her garment.

    According to Harrods these are the notes (does Roger Dove write them up for Harrods?):


    Top notes:
    Sicilian bergamot gives a Hesperidic freshness, with grains of Indonesian amber
    Middle notes:
    floral blend of freesia, mellow and powdery Turkish rose, osmanthus and ambery kephalis
    Base notes:
    Haiti vetiver, Texan cedar
    Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.

    Sestra, thanks for having posted your impressions of Lalique Encre Noire pour Elle, I have been reading about it. A girl can dream, right?

    Sonia Rykiel original (pullover) on me today -- sweet pineapple and patchouli for the last day of summer. It lasts and lasts, can become cloying though but we all enjoy the joy of cloy once in a blue moon. I do!

    Go and make this day wonderful, everyone!

    Up early (woke up with one arm asleep, dead-asleep, from my sleeping like the dead...LOL) and will have a busier than busy next two weeks... This morning I intend to wear something to bolster my "okay folks this is the FINAL draft, right, sign it off so we can produce this baby!" standing-my-ground mood. So I'm thinkin' It's a BB/B day (Bulgari Black layered with Bandit). If I still had a leather jacket this would be the day for THAT, too.

    Rochas Femme. I'm not one to limit wearing frags by season, but this one has a plum pudding richness that feels especially autumnal to me.

    The day is promising to be dark and dismal and my mood melancholy so only L'Heure Bleue will do.

    Hello everyone -

    Inspired by talk of it in yesterday's thread, I'm taking advantage of the warm weather in a blast of surreal green - Germaine Cellier's stunning 1947 original Vent Vert, vintage parfum plus a flourish of vintage edt.




    Y'all have a great day!

    Good morning!

    Tabac Blond today.



    Yesterday night a little tabby cat was mewing outside our door, so I let it in and our cat Sally threw a complete fit and didn't fully recover until this morning. So much for getting another cat. In hindsight it was totally irresponsible to just let another cat in, for various reasons (diseases, etc.) Sally's been an only cat for over five years. I wonder if she'd react less negatively (ha) to a kitten? Anyone have experience?

    Jolie Madame for me today (contemporary version). The leather is deep and almost smokey and the violets are shy -- as my skin chemistry today is emphasizing the vetiver.
