Le Labo Patchouli.
Already past 2 in the afternoon here and I'm heading out for brunch with Sous le Vent (Guerlain). It never ceases to amaze me how this one kick starts the day like a great eau (AdP Colonia, Eau de Guerlain etc) and then cruises into a bouyant but laid back breezy Mediterranean flora vibe with just the right amount of oakmoss to keep it grounded thru the rest of the day. It put's wind in yer sails, or something like that.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....

I'm still not sure if I'm an oud fan, but that kumquat/grapefruit combo makes this one unique. It's definitely growing on me.

Juicy Couture Dirty English for me today. Boozy, leathery, tobacco but not so intense/long lasting. Nevertheless, a pleasant one.
Have a nice Sunday !
