“As if everyone, all over the world, had his daily visually artistic task; the task of being an image for others.” Peter Handke
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..."

Poivre 23 by Le Labo
A friend and I spent last night sampling a ton of fragrances in my wardrobe, and when he sprayed this one on a test strip and I caught a whiff of it, I realized how much I love this scent. I'm starting to smell how sweet it is, for a pepper prominent scent - sort of like a black pepper pie, if that makes sense. The incense just smolders all day long too. Big love for this one.

Notes: Violet Leaves, White Cedar, Violet Flowers
Violet flowers, leaves, and cedar. The cedar is the perfect foil to bring out the floral aspects of the ionone note as well as the greenness of the violet leaf. In The Guide, Luca Turin sings the praises of this scent, speaking of the rotational nature of the notes from Feminité du Bois; he analyzes the swapping around of the prominent note in each of the derived scents, and expounds on how the violet and cedar are brought out in this one. I can't believe that the prominent notes are the only ones here; there might be hints of honey or beeswax, cinnamon, and orange blossom in here, but deftly relegated to the background. These or some other elements spice, soften, and impart a warm, animalic note to the mix. Beautiful, fairly lasting, subtle but sensuous. One of the best.
