    What can I say? It's L'Heure Bleue(50s extrait) all the way!



    C’est un parfum très facetté, tout en nuances. En tête : bergamote, notes aromatiques, puis prend place le bouquet floral : œillet, rose bulgare, fleur d’oranger, jasmin, violette, héliotrope, sur un fond boisé : mousse, labdanum, et surtout très vanillé, juste une note musc très subtilement dosée.

    Un soir d’été, Jacques Guerlain se promène et soudain, s’arrête ; il est troublé par le spectacle qu’il a devant les yeux : la nature est baignée d’une lumière bleue, un bleu très profond, indéfinissable ; elle semble conspirer à une infinie tendresse, une infinie douceur. C’est une heure silencieuse, une heure où l’homme est en harmonie avec le monde et la lumière, où toutes les senteurs exaltées parlent d’infini.

    Sophie, 2000 posts and you joined us only in May this year. I diagnose an addiction for which there is no known cure.

    Well, I threw open my cupboard with a mass of fragrances and thought - my dear, I haven't a thing to wear! If only today were Sniff & Speak. Eventually I chose a rare outing for

    Carven MA GRIFF


    Have a nice weekend
    Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.

    Congratulations sweet sophie, and have a great weekend everyone!

    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..."

    My SotD will be Kenzo Le Tigre. After I walk the doggies. Which will be after I have some more coffee.

    Happy Sat. to All. I enjoy seeing all the postings for SotD, even after I post, because it is so interesting. If I ever learn to put photos on here, I'll be amazing (maybe). Love everybody's pics and artwork!

    Oh, Mark, a big, wet birthday kiss to you, wherever you are!

    Sophi, your fingers must be tired!

    I'm in a wonderful fragrance rut -- I like Au The Blanc on paper at my desk and 24 Faubourg on my shirt (it turns acrid on my skin).

    A gray, rainy day (love, love, love!) for sitting at the computer and putting together a magazine while running videos in the corner of my monitor. This week's sidebar entertainment has been the Brit series Kingdom (available on Hulu), webisodes of Ctrl (funny), and Dean Martin DVDs on loan from a friend. Speaking of entertainment -- NOTE: PBS is airing the BBC's newest Sherlock Holmes in the U.S. this week. Highly recommended
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Moschino RTW AW 07/08

    Moschino Couture! today. I always seem to pick these grand 'furs and pearls' type of perfumes to go to the supermarket on a Saturday. Big spaces can cope with big scents, and there's something wonderfully un-apropos about buying spuds and loo roll whilst smelling like a diva! I was at least wearing (faux) fur.


    Happy Birthday Sommervile Metro Man!

    First... Happy Birthday Sommervile Metro Man!

    I'm in what remains of a decant of Chanel Cuir de Russie (and alas it is just NOT doing it for me, not strong enough for my tastes and has already faded on my skin 2 hours in.) ...

    I've been a bad girl as I have made 2 scent purchases in the last month that I sorely do not need to have made: Chanel Platinum Egoiste after sampling it a couple times at the store and getting a lemming on... and after having a small decant from a generous basenoter of Idole de Lubin I have gone for a FB on that one. So my next scent will have to be something a loved one gets me for Christmas, I think. (heh... as if I needed anything else... what I have in my scent cabinet will last probably my lifetime if it doesn't go off before then!)

    And I do need a real scent cabinet as the linen closet is getting cramped and awkward for the FBs I have. Maybe I can get my sweetie to build me one... that I think he would like!

    EDIT: Hey Sophi, congrats on 2000! You're making me feel like a slacker as I joined a few months before you! Guess I got me some postin' to do!
