    Default SotD Saturday, 10 September 2011

    Good morning,

    It's sunny and summery here. Breakfast was pancakes (crepes) with Creme de Marrons de l'Ardeche... yummy! French lifestyle is delicious...



    I ordered directly from France, after I had navigated through the French only website (not that it surprised me really ). Also tasted the Marron glacé and the ones in syrup and plenty of Cognac for breakfast...
    Scentwise I reached for Roja Dove's Enslaved Parfum. I had nearly forgotten how great this is.
    I know Caron's Or et Noir with its real Marron glacé drydown would have been a perfect match.

    Enjoy your day!

    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..."

    I Profumi di Firenzi Lilla today -- nice lilac scent combining freshness, sweetness, earth and erasers, getting powdery as it wears and acquiring tonka-like warmer undertones.

    Happy Birthday, shades!

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Happy birthday, Shannon!



    SOTD is Dior's ebullient, golden Dolce Vita. I don't usually class frags by season but this one surely feels richly autumnal to me, all spiced stewed fruits and woody goodness. So lovely and smooth.

    Have a great day, all!

    Guerlain Homme EdP. It's green made delicious, with a wonderful salty, slow-burning tension of vetiver, cedarwood and patchouli through the drydown — as promised, an evident nod to Jean-Paul Guerlain's Vetiver, and with that tweedy feel of roots and windy highlands we know from as far back as Djedi and Sous le Vent.

    **Could someone help me resize this????



    I really want to get together with each of you!

    SOTD is from a sample of the beautiful iris, Irisss by Xerjoff. This little stunner was given to me by a kind & generous basenoter. (You know who you are, sweetheart!)

    On another note, today is the debut of ThePerfumeMagazine. A number of dear friends (including several members of basenotes) are contributors.

    I'll try to post more often, now that the move is complete and I'm down to a couple of decades of boxes...instead of hundreds.

    Hello Everyone,
    Quickly logging in from Krakow to say I'm wearing Villoresi's Acqua di Colonia. Conference finished today and will be back home tomorrow. Got to bed at 5am and was up again at 7am to present my paper. Despite looking, and feeling, like death warmed up, it was well received so I am very, very relieved.
    Hope I haven't missed too much gossip here
    Best to all.
