    Damn, fragranceman88, you're making me hungry (it's lunch-time here in Oz). Another 'fume that smells kinda like warm apple pie to me is YSL Cinema EDP - have you tried it?

    Back to topic:
    My SOTD is Ormonde Jayne Tolu. Loving it!

    Preparing to set off for a wedding shortly. Will be wearing Clive Christian X for the occasion.




    I strongly suspect that the following will be playing at some stage - it is one of their favourite pieces and must surely be worthy of inclusion here.

    Ferre called out to me today, but I can only just detect it on my skin
    if I sniff my wrists really hard. It seems extremely subtle.

    Guerlain's Parure EdT. Did newer bottles of Parure EdT smell a bit brighter than we remembered it to smell? Maybe. Was there a change in the formula? Who knows. Best guess is it was laid to rest exactly to avoid a bad reformulation. "We sell perfumes of which the oldest is over 150 years old. If some day Brussels doesn't want rose essence any longer, how am I to do? There is rose in almost all our perfumes... It is a heritage we need to defend," says Thierry Wasser who has declared himself spokesman for the preservation of original formulas and raw materials. "Jean-Paul Guerlain had created Parure for his mother. We had to discontinue it because we could no longer use the ingredients necessary to make it. It's a heartbreak."

    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..."

    Happy Birthday Mike !

    Wearing Carthusia Uomo this morning in honor of your celebrations (okay it's not Numero Uno, but it's as close as I could get.)

    On the other arm, testing Guerilla perfumes Imogen Rose, a sort of herbaceous rose, interesting...

    Have a lovely day, all!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Joining Gandhajellyknees this morning, and stealing his picture , but I doubt he will mind since we smell so darn good!

    I found this sample in my box, and didn't even know I had it. Why have I not tried this?! After 5 minutes, I knew I would get a bottle. But just to be sure, I've pulled out some other leather samples and will be trying them out over the next couple of days.

    Mike, have a wonderful birthday!!!

    OMG, dear man!!! In the past two weeks, you've crossed my mind five times -- seriously.
    After just having played Scout master for the BN NOLA field trip, I was remembering how easy you made it for us to coast through the Boston meet-up. And I remember how you wore Black Vetyver Cafe for me upon our first hug.
    But now you're Bethesda Metro Man? Whazup with dat?

    Thanks Jon, Quarry, and lilybelle. It has been a long strange journey the last year or so since I saw some of you. Bottom line I am now permanently relocated to DC currently Bethesda but this is temporary too and soon I hope we have a new house. It is at that point I will contemplate a name change.....or not.
    Based on what I read the NoLa trip was another smashing good time. Where is next year? I'd say Chicago or San Fran, maybe???

    We're heading Uptown tonight for oysters at Casamento's, then to hear Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers at Tipitina's ....a nearly perfect evening, except for the rain! And I'm in Givenchy's beautiful, plummy and rosy Very Irrésistible L'Intense ...a nearly perfect fragrance, except for the name!

    I'm wearing Bond Signature Perfume today. I tried this almost a year ago, and totally loved it ... but today it is not sitting well on my skin. It smells like ... errrr sweaty man stink. yuck. It's very possible my sample has just gone bad, but I feel like I can safely cross this off of the wish list after today.
