C A R O N
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..."

AJMC, I heartily approve of your avatar... Wait, maybe it's that I heartily approve of single malt scotch in general, or at least the non-peaty ones... Oh, hell. I hope you know what I mean.
It's actually supposed to be sunny and dry in Boston today, and I decided to go with Parfumerie Generale Querelle. It's crisp, woody and very, very dry - I think it would be wonderful in humid weather, and to my nose it trends traditionally "masculine" so gentlemen, don't be shy about trying this one. I'm hoping my skin's tendency to pull any sweet notes out of a frag will do so here as it dries down, but I'm enjoying it "as is," too. Thrilling Thursday to all!
Querelle Notes: Citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitian vetiver, incense, oakmoss, ambergris.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

Yohji Homme by Yohji Yamamoto
"Yohji Homme represents the philosophy of Yohji Yamamoto- the world without borders. It has no country, it overcomes borders and definitions. Like many Japanese fragrances, Yohji is a very interesting, unusual perfume. Yohji is a light perfume with elegant cedar accord and a touch of warm sandalwood. The fresh and spicy top is made of coriander, lavender, bergamot and anise. The hint of cinnamon gives warmth of spices to the aroma of rare trees. Licorice accord reminds you of sweets that you used to eat when you were a child. Very masculine notes of leather and rum are in the base. The perfume was created in 1999. The nose behind this fragrance is Jean-Michel Duriez."
One of the BEST designer fragrances. Discontinued (but still available).
