    Default SotD Wednesday 25 May -11

    Good morning everyone.... Feeling rather zombielike this morning....Even so sleepy that I'm not even nervous about today's exam... Thanks a million for all the good luck wishes yesterday I don't feel prepared at all, but will do my best. Sotd is chosen from the "Pick my tomorrow's sotd thread" ( or something like that) and he did well I'm in Shalimar today. Hopefully it will make me feel fearless and strong!!

    I have an early morning tomorrow, something I heartily dislike, so I think I will be doing a third day in Givenchy III, just to keep things a little less complicated for me come 7:30am (for those of you who customarily awaken with the dawn I am aware that 7:30 is akin to sleeping in). Take care, all.

    Mure et Musc Extreme, the last of the little sample. Love this, and it's among the very exclusive group of scents that are DH-approved, it got the highest praise of "that smells OK". actually reminds me of the Body Shop Dewberry body wash, and I didn't expect to like it so much, threw it in as a something-different in a sample order, but wow. It is very lovely in the heat, too, which is a big deal down here.

    I will buy it someday - I think the Keiko Meicheri Datura Blanche won for the this summer buy though. But if some extra money comes in, this is a close #2 contender.

    Annick Goutal Musc Nomade. A lovely, gentle vegetal musk with an herbal accent. Clean-smelling without going sharp the way some musks can do.

    Notes: Muscone, white musk stemming from angelica root and ambrette seed, tonka beans, labdanum, Bombay wood (a variety of papyrus)

    SotD is Michelle Bergman Black Gardenia Perfume Oil. For the 1st 15 minutes all I could think was,
    wow, shouldn't wear this in the morning. I'd forgotten how potent this is, but now it's settling
    down and it's really nice. Pure gardenia and nothing else as far as I can tell. I like it way better
    than Kai, but my favorite is still Gardenia Petale by VC & A.

    It's warm here, a bit too warm for my favorite flowers: tall bearded iris. Just looking at a bed of iris, with their array of colors, makes me smile. The Presby Iris Garden is just a town (or two) over from me in Upper Montclair. Think I'll take my camera for a little stroll before the heat gets too intense.

    Scent today is Aqua de Parma's Iris Nobile edt. From bois de jasmine: "Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile was created by perfumers Francis Kurkdjian and Françoise Caron of Quest in 2004" They are referring to the edt. The edp was created by Francoise Caron alone. Notes: "Iris Nobile EDT includes notes of bergamot, mandarin, iris petals, star anise, cedar flower, iris petals, orange blossom, iris, amber, vanilla" Quotes are from a review by bois de jasmine on February 21, 2007.

    The avatar is a photo I took of iris in my garden.

    I was at the shop this afternoon and I saw ''Youth dew'' and I thought, ''I have never given that one a serious try'', so I sprayed a good dollop on my left arm.
    And then I saw ''Midnight Poison'', and I thought; ''I really really need to try that one, I have read such good things about it on Basenotes''. So I gave my right arm a good solid spray.
    Now I'm home.
    And it's all a bit overwhelming....

    Love midnight Poison though!

    I appreciate seeing all the drive-bys, hanging-in-theres, and resurrecting posters. I'm looking at you in particular, my former hostess with the mostest, Brielle!

    Fascinating photo, FrouFrou. Of course, the woman can't sit with her back to the chair, but this is all about art, not comfort. Full blasts of Youth Dew and Midnight Poison? Hide your children, mothers.

    I can relate.

    Mimi, I hope that cold virus peters out quickly. Many thanks again to you and Matildaben for all the samples now strewn under my computer monitor.

    Rain + work + samples = cozy contentment. Given the cool and damp weather, I was attracted to the L’Artisan Vanilla sample this morning -- r-e-a-l-l-y attracted. I don't normally care about vanilla-starring fragrances, but this tobacco-imitating amber note and restrained sweetness are proving once again that sooner or later there will be a beautiful fragrance that defies one's preferences. The scent is old news release-wise (b. 1978) and now supposedly discontinued, but it's new to me today, and I'm digging it.

    Mr. G, unfortunately no. I simply googled gor Mitsouko when this showed up. I really liked the box design and did not notice immediately that the bottle had the same on. It was a Japanese site, maybe it is just for demonstration or fun or whatever.

    SotE: Inspired by the Habanita thread (revived) I am wearing Habanita Extrait with Enslaved Extrait on my right wrist to compare. I think Habanita Extrait goes through the floral heart much faster and Enslaved smells more of quality ( to my unprofessional nose). All in all they are very close to my perception with the Habanita on the tad 'greener', 'harsher' (not positive) side, but eventually it is a matter of taste. Enslaved produces a bit more sillage than Habanita and is more long-lived. If memory serves well, quite a bit so.

    Restrained sweetness? Are we talking about the same Vanilia? It comes on totally candy-like for me. Actually I think that must be ethylmaltol because I tried Profumum's Vanitas last night and it had a very similar opening note. Anyway, as far as I know, it is discontinued, although they have several bottles at Essenza in Seattle. I bought 100ml mainly so I could use it for swaps; it's not my favorite vanilla but I'll give it a chance to grow on me.

    Oh, I am a lost woman! I wear a spritz of Hermessence Iris Yuke... can't spell it... and I thought I won't like it but boy I do. On another arm I wear a spritz of Brin reglisse. I only used a tiny spritz and set the vial aside because for some reason I was sure I would hate it. Really?? Nooooooo! I love it too! Even better! So far the only one I am NOT falling in love with is Osmanthe Yunnan, and THAT is the one I was eying forever!

    What you said. I tried it in the store and you described my feelings about it exactly. Same -- I am usually not attracted to vanillas, but this one is the winner.

    Mure et Musc Extreme, very exclusive group of scents that are DH-approved, it got the highest praise of "that smells OK".
    ROFL! That is EXACTLY what is is high praise for my DH too! Hilarious. He's happy if it doesn't trigger a migraine.

    Speaking of migraines. I have to share my frustrations with people who will (I think) appreciate this: So, I'm on the prowl for a possible (likely) Chanel purchase. There are so many I'm loving and only so much alotted to the cause until next month. So, Chanel No. 5 lasts 30-60 minutes on me. Simply cannot do it though I love it. So, I applied Bois de Iles today. Love it, but not great longevity. I'm smelling my little sample vial of No. 22 and am anxious to see if it will stay longer than No. 5 and was to apply it for the evening sotd since BDI is long gone. As I'm closing the tester, it flips out of my fingers, arcing toward my left and dumping the ENTIRE contents of the vial on my left arm, scrub top and bottom and all over my driver's side door as I am still in my car. I am horrified and upset at the waste of this precious liquid! I get home to change my scrubs and am retelling this to my DH who replies in typical redneck fashion "Yeah, I can smell you from here. (some distance away) So are you telling me you smell like a $10.00 one"? He thinks he's being funny and discreet because our 9 year old son is within earshot. My reply was that I hope I smelled like a much more expensive "one" than $10.00 as it is Chanel after all! He was amused. I was not.

    But on the bright side, it's been 6 hours and it's still faintly discernible to me. Maybe the EDP would be do-able.
    Still hard to tell how long it would last as I don't intend to bathe in it again! My migraine is receding.

    Sorry to hear about your No. 22 sample, Cocogirl, I've had that happen a couple of times too. At least your car smells terrific!!

    SotE is Yves Rocher Voile de Ambre.
