    Good Morning Jon!
    I am up late today and have decided to wear Ferre by Ferre
    (the Iris one.) Very similar to Iris Poudre and by the same nose,
    Pierre Bourdon.

    Today I'm wearing an incense that I have postponed wearing for over a year because it's a limited edition and I can't find it anywhere So finally, I was like SCREW IT!!! And then I raped the hell out that atomizer hahahaha!!! Perfume is meant to be worn and enjoyed, so what good does it do in the bottle!

    Oh, the fragrance is D'humeur a Rien by L'artisan Parfumeur. It's similar to Passage d'Enfer but without its equally haunting lily-of-the-valley note and has more damp, creepy moldy incense. Sort of a cross between Avignon and Messe de Minuit.

    I'm in a particularly hallowed scent today, Hermes Caleche Eau Delicate. Now I'm aware that this fragrance has "underwhelmed" scent aficionados. Indeed, I guess mostly everyone, as it has been discontinued. However, when I first sniffed this fragrance, I had "the scent epiphany". This particular creation spoke to me (still does ) in such a personal and profound way, and it was at that moment, that I went from being a wearer of perfume to whatever it is that we all are...enlightened, obsessed, deliriously in love with fragrance. Shortly thereafter, I found Basenotes. So, I guess I'd call this my turning point fragrance.
    Notes: aldehydes, jasmine, rose, black currant, mandarin, sandalwood and cedar.

    Have a great day!

    Hello everyone Today has been a work day. Really hard to get up this morning,but I had a looooong nap after I got home Sotd was Cuir Mauresque. All I get from that scent is a very soft suede leather note and a transparent orange note. I don't get much spice,just a touch of cumin maybe. What is this scent suppose to smell like? SotE is Coco edp.

    Hey y'all -

    Rose Absolute is lovely, but it lacks tenacity. I'm in Dolce Vita now.




    pomander - thanks for sharing your epiphany story! I'm sure everyone reading it can relate to that particular excitement and is fondly recalling their own. I have a few actually, but I think my first experience with Chamade was probably my most dramatic. That was about thirty years ago, but I remember it like it happened yesterday.

    SOTD is Lancome's Sikkim. As their Cuir is an utterly correct leather scent, this is a correct chypre. No faradiddles with peaches or roses or anything else, it is a simple and elegant exercise in the chypre form. Like sitting in a straight-backed chair can sometimes feel more comfortable than sitting on a squashy sofa, this is an exercise in restraint and uprightness that is quietly sensual. I love it, but like so many chypres, I must be in the mood.

    Today I am in the mood.

    No scent until almost noon for me, but my Magnolia Nobile was STILL slightly there during my AM tennis (almost 24 hours later). So now I'm clean, but tired, and smelly like a drunk lady of the evening in my PdE Ambre Russe. I'm quite sure this will be it for the day, as I'll still be smelling this in the morning - another long lasting one.

    Lessa, 1000 ~~~ Oh, yeah~~~ Oh, yeah.

    Boucheron yesterday. Sel de Vetiver today.

    Regarding yesterday's two seminars:
    Thanks for invisible support, Lilybelle. Thanks for feigned or real interest, everybody. And thanks, Evangeline, for providing an unintentional punchline … Although most of those attending were seeing my program for the first time, a couple would have to sit through a second viewing. Before giving the control booth the high sign to start my DVD, I said something to the effect that I promised my material would be entertaining and at least better than having to sit through a baby shower. I could not believe the loud and howling reaction out of both men and women. Are baby showers the yardstick by which we measure how low we must sink to meet societal pressures?

    So, how was that b-shower, E?

    What a nice caption to your Caleche Eau Delicate moment, Pomander.

    "Muppets from Space" was on Antenna TV recently, so I took a pic of Miss Piggy spraying Mind Mist for my avatar. The formulation was concocted by Dr. Bunsen Honeydew; it renders people compliant.

    I'm in Penhaligon's Anthology Night Scented Stock (from a sample) at the moment, after starting out (inspired by Lessa) in the fleeting but pretty Guerlain Chant d'Aromes this morning, then giving a decant I saved of Equipage another try this afternoon. The Equipage hasn't got as "clovey" a carnation as I remembered when testing My Sin extrait yesterday but isn't a scent for me, so no regrets in having swapped it.

    The Night Scented Stock is very pretty and the clove/cinnamon aren't strong (of course right now I'm sipping a tea with ginger, cinnamon, and other spices so it's tricky to figure out whether it's the tea or the scent!).

    I'm scent twins with cello today in Ambre Russe. I'm doing a sort of trial run from a sample, thinking this might be my next purchase, as amber seems to be my desired note o' the moment. Amber is seriously tenacious on me, and this one has the touch of sweet I require to keep it from being too sharp and camphor-y. The booziness gives it a heat and depth my current paramour, Amber Ylang-Ylang, doesn't have, so this one, unlike AYY, is probably going to be relegated to only the coldest and coziest days (because there is nothing better for such a day than the permeating warmth amber has the capability to supply.) A year or so ago, Tao wrote about it, likening it to being wrapped up in a sable, next to a cossack driving a dogsled... really, her post was deliciously tempting. I wish I could find it, because that is what prompted me to try Ambre Russe in the first place. It is supposed to have a leather note, as well. I look forward to its appearance on me, but if it doesn't happen, it is really all the same... So far, I like this one.

    Quarry - that's awesome, and I'm honored! I'm so glad it went well and I do wish I had been there. The shower was loud and long and silly, but there was lots of very fattening food and a good amount of booze too, and the ladies were very nice so the ordeal was almost tolerable ..."almost" due to the games (!) we were all "encouraged" to participate in (...which even the booze failed to help! )
