MORNING: Annick Goutal - Les Nuits D'Hadrien
La Tulipe - Byredo
Wishlist is pointless.
I can never get enough of this one:
Oscar de la Renta pour Lui by Oscar de la Renta
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Absolute pour le Soir.
"You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality." - Ayn Rand
"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur (1904) Jacques Guerlain Oriental
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Lavender, Verbena. •Heart Notes: Neroli, Jasmine, Cinnamon, Rose. •Base Notes: Patchouli, Tonka bean, Iris, Vanilla, Oak Moss, Amber, Civet
This is another classic from a hundred years or so ago. The folk wisdom is that this was the follow-up EdT version of the 1889 Jicky. That may or may not be true... Now there is an EdT version of Jicky, and I can tell you, personally, I like Mouchoir de Monsieur much better. Other folk wisdom says there's civet in this, but Guerlain doesn't seem to confirm that... Are they just trying not to alarm the timid among us? Or is it possibly subsumed under "fern harmony?" I definitely smell something like an animalic note in this, but perhaps it's just because I want to believe it's really there.
In any case, my take on this one is that it's a beautiful snapshot of what masculine elegance seemed like at the turn of the last century; and having said that, I want it to be the epitome of masculine elegance today as well! The feeling I get when I wear this is superb, like walking on air. No matter what's going on in my day-to-day pedestrian existence, I can't believe there's anything to be concerned about if I smell this good.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

P A R I S
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..."

Basking in the cuddling waves of Amouge Gold Cologne (discontinued but still sold in ONE AMOUAGE boutique in Masqat, Oman from an urn). Imagine Chanel 19 with silver frankinsece and a bit of myrrh. Stuff to moan for.
It's my birthday today... - and someone (a wonderful friend!!!) sent me a generous decant of OPUS I by Amouage today.
What a fragrance! GORGEOUS!
I'm wearing OPUS I today...
