    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..."

    another day in vintage Shalimar, this juice is heavenly...I turned on some of the young students in my grad program to Shalimar after class - a few of them took me out for a birthday drink, and I let everyone have a little spritz from my decant I was carrying around...it was cool to see them respond - lots of exclamations, sighs and that familiar wrist to the nose move that we all know so well, lol!

    If I can extricate myself from the velvety arms of Shalimar, I just may try to synch in Eau Sauvage tonight...

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    Welcome to Basenotes, whwend. I like your impression of revisiting a scent.

    Today I'm in sync with Dolce Vita. I've learned to enjoy this one by spraying LESS. It's a powerhouse.

    Poison (vintage Esprit de Parfum) by Christian Dior



    So, this is how I had to apply this one. I took a bath this morning, so I dropped 10 drops (from a plastic squeezy-thing...I forget what you call those!?) into my entire bath and I swear the guy on the far side of my office can probably smell me. This stuff does not f*ck around.

    This afternoon I'll probably wear some Granville and tonight some of my sample of vintage Miss Dior.

    Good going, Rtamara!Spreading the joy to another generation; that's what it's all about!

    No scent yet, other than Eau de 30 Volume Peroxide. Had to slap some haircolor over these little whities that I seem to be getting more & more of.

    Received a package yesterday from a very sweet Basenoter that gave me some relief from my Twolf Syndrome; finally discovered Quartz by Molyneux! I am in love and feel like such a jerk for having missed out on it all these years. Reminds me a little of Cristalle, definite similarities as well as its own unique qualities and IMO, just as good. I don't think this qualifies as being cured of TS, not a new release after all, just a classic I had missed. Don't think there is a cure, anyway but this is a very welcome remission! Will be in Quartz as soon as the haircolor fumes clear out.

    Oh, Quartz is so much better, imo ...and I think that's saying something, as much as I love Chanel and all. (Molyneux is a great house, though - definitely worth exploring!) Congratulations on your new discovery - you're going to need a full bottle, I'm sure!

    Evangeline, I have one in my Amazon cart already! I can be very decisive about my frags! There is something about Quartz that Cristalle doesn't quite have, more rounded and full-bodied, maybe? Certainly a "friendlier" fragrance to my nose. It's fantastic; I am so pleased!

    Good for you - new discoveries are so fun! I've always found Cristalle a bit too sharp and bitter, and somehow mean ...not that it's not beautiful, but you're right, Quartz is definitely friendlier. And so chic! I think it's one of the most quintessentially stylish and casually chic fragrances available.

    Eau de haircolor is truly un-lovely stuff, isn't it? My house stinks but as I used to do this for a living, it would be silly to spend that perfume money on a colorist!

    Quartz is an excellent ripe fruits and spring flowers in a luxuriously soft leather bag type of chypre. Will this be in your box of citric greens, Alityke? I'm stalking that thread; I'm as ready for it to get going as you are! I hope you will be trying Quartz, it's so good I will definitely be ordering that bottle. Evangeline said it; this is chic.

    I believe it will be PL. So difficult to get in Northern England, I've never seen it on sale. It is available on Amazon.co.uk though so if I fall hard a FB is obtainable. I fear others will be impossible to find if I fall for there charms.

    That 20 20 peroxide is a deeply unattractive smell but the results are worth it. The result perfectly matches those natural white highlights...lol. I don't cover those whiteys I get more put in deliberately.

    Oh and the house and I smell fabulous wearing the drops from some vintage Poison I've been decanting

    Quartz is in the same family as Le Parfum de Therese, per Hillaire, and she is right I think.

    I'm wearing Chanel No. 5 edt this afternoon. I have such a love/hate relationship with this particular formulation. Sometimes it goes metallic and sour on me, and at other times (like today) it is wonderful. I don't know, just when I was going to purge this now I think I'll keep it.

    I am sadly Poison deprived. I once loved Tendre Poison, once hated original Poison - until around 2000 when I tried it again and decided it was great, never tried Hypnotic Poison (imagine? what's wrong with me!), and I don't think Pure Poison is for me. Midnight Poison is not for me, but I'm not sure. I need to do a Poison sniffa.

    I'm also sadly Dior deprived in general. I must get up to speed. Le Duc would brain me with his sceptor if he knew.

    Some great posts today....poetic and funny

    It's a lovely day here and I opted to sync in Diorissimo. My little flacon is vintage but not sure what exact date- It's a 1 oz EDT that has a ballet pink metal cap with plastic lining and painted gold bands on the top and botton edges of cap. the frosted glass flacon sits on a 1/4 inch gold base.
    This is the EDT but I couldn't get away with wearing this at work. The strength and sillage are superb. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.

    Sampling vintage Antilope and Estee Lauder Private Collection extrait. They both are very lovely and will be sure to keep my nose coming back to my wrist. Fun!
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
