    Enjoy your day!

    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..."

    Dom, you obviously have the original and not the Long Lost Perfumes version. You've got some beautiful stuff.

    Today I'm wearing TEMPORE DONNA from Laura Biagiotti

    I wanted a light and cheery peach for some reason. I reached first to my ancient bottle of Cerruti 1881 thinking it would do the trick, but it came out musty and unpleasant. I doubt if I've sprayed it in 20 years. Has my old bottle turned bad, or did I have a false memory of its fragrance? I showered it away just in case.

    So Tempore Donna it is, and it is doing a great job.

    Sestra, I have heard before that Cerruti 1881 dies after a few years of use. I can't say for sure since I have used up my 30ml back in 1996, I recall.

    Can't shake this Shalimar infatuation. It's like I've discovered a new old friend.
    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I usually go for the who's who in perfumery lol. Replique is the first one in which I smell herbs very prominently, but the vintage is a little sour smelling; not the turned perfume sour, but a rather appealing sour. Hope I'm right about this.

    Cerruti 1881 sounds familiar but I've never smelt it...

    I've just read that it was created in 1995 so I must have bought it right at the start. It seems to have been with me forever. The write-ups say it is a light floral which smells like crisp fresh air or clean linen. Eh? Mine smelled of none of those this morning. I'll give it anothjer try when I have time to let it settle and I'm not going anywhere.

    In the meantime, I'm thrilled with my gorgeous Tempore Donna

    Weeell, The Dreamer had kinda evaporated, and I just saw a review
    of Kouros on youtube, so I got the urge to apply it at once.
    I usually get into my SotE at about 4 or 5 in the afternoon, so it was
    not that early for me.
