    Nothing at all? That's a huge shock to me...

    After last night's first trial, I'm back in

    NOIR de NOIR
    by Tom Ford

    'A dark chypre oriental, this scent opens with an earthy mantle of richly woven Saffron, Black Rose and Black Truffle, with hints of floralcy. Underneath, Vanilla, Patchouli, Oud Wood and Tree Moss'

    'Floralcy?' what a horrible word.


    Noir de Noir was still there this morning when I got up, so good longevity is apparent. I reapplied anyway. The opening is still cherry liquer to my nose, and this is not what I want, but it doesn't last for long. I'm looking forward to the oud wood making an appearance. Last night it became quite lovely with a light touch of soft oud, patchouli, and rose.

    I've been looking for the noses behind the Private Blend without much luck. Any information appreciated. Am I right in thinking this one might be JC Ellena? The Tom Ford web site is glossy but missing the key info a raving perfumista needs. Other sites seem devoid of noses, too.
    Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.

    Sestra, "Now Smell This" has a listing of perfumers and while I didn't see Noir de Noir on my first pass, I was encouraged to note the inclusion of several other Tom Ford Private Blends (credited to David Apel.) I didn't scroll through the entire thing and I know it's somewhat cumbersome to search by perfumer, but maybe you'll luck out:

    I'm wearing Angel today, just the edp so far but I think I'll top up with a couple dabs of the body cream, too.

    Wish you all a smooth start to your week!

    Roberto, I always end up wanting to sit next to you, you wear such lovely things!
    Habit Rouge is just blissful in the edp - I've seriously considered getting a bottle. (But first I have to get Caron Pour un Homme.)

    I started the day in L'Artisan's Tea for Two - perfect right now with the sweetly smoky autumnal vibe, but since that's now just rumbling along in the background, I've taken to opportunity to top it with some Ava Luxe Mousse de Chene extrait. This stuff is probably still one of my biggest go-tos of the year.

    Since I had my Road to Damascus conversion about oakmoss and discovered its naughty, warm and sexy side beneath that bitter outward shell, I've been wearing more and more perfumes that feature it prominently. Serena's version somehow sidesteps the bitter (how does she do that?) but then warms deliciously on the skin to release a cozy wrap of elegance.

    So; I wish you all a good day.

    will try to catch sophi's spirit! wearing my chanel no 19, very curious about the comparisons being made between this classic love and the new serge lutens' bas de soie
    "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."

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in vintage K de Krizia this morning. I just opened a "new" box of old stock from the late '80s and I'm thrilled to find that it's as gorgeous as ever...though not surprised. I've never had a bottle go bad on me, knock wood.



    sophi sweetie, is that you frolicking in the autumn leaves? What fun!!


    Y'all have a fantastic day!
