Dior: Leather Oud
Reviews :: http://www.lemouchoirparfume.blogspot.co.uk :: Reviews
After a few days of playing with Absolue Pour Le Matin (and deciding that the herbal lavender in it just does not work for me, I quite enjoyed the fizzy sherbet actually - but then I love aldehydes and fizzy sorts of notes) today I am having a different herbal take in
Lime Basil and Mandarin: Jo Malone.
Anyone want the last of my APLM sample?
It's over half full.

Morning darlings. Are you all OK?
Unlike myself today in Vintage Cabochard from a lovely BN friend.
Started in Elie Saab Signature, pre-shower, meh to blah, will chose something else.

Good morning !. SotD is PDN New York.
went on a tangent yesterday in Eau Sauvage, the drydown was too "manly" for me...today I am in Mona di Orio Musc to soften things up a bit.
"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
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Thanks to a divine perfume friend I am testing Puredistance 1, Antonia, and M today. Preliminary observations: these are rarefied scents -- top shelf, luxury -- that smell every bit as expensive as they cost. And *concentrated* -- they are parfum extraits and a tiny dot of each is enough to radiate off my skin. So far, "M" seems to be most my speed (and said perfume friend called it beforehand) - an intensely smoky, birch tarry leather chypre with resinous oriental touches. It's doubtful I'll be able to afford larger quantities but I'm sure having fun with the samples in the meantime!
Notes for 1: Fresh tangerine blossom, cassis, neroli bigarade, magnolia, rose wardia, jasmine, natural mimosa, sweet amber, vetiver, white musk
Notes for Antonia: Jasmine, rose essence, ylang ylang, orris, ivy greens, galbanumb, vanilla, vetiver
Notes for M: Bergamot, lemon, rose, jasmin, cinnamon, patchouli, moss, cistus, vetiver, vanilla, leather, musk
Wish you all a very good start to your week!
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
I'm in Fico di Amalfi today. It's a gorgeous day!
The guy from our well maintenance company is servicing our pump, which has a clogged valve (causing water to shut off suddenly, always at the most inconvenient moments, of course.) It will be nice to have it working normally again.
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..."

It's the last day of winter today, yay!!
SotD is Isabey L'Ambre de Carthage with notes of cistus, bergamot, osmanthus, jasmine tea, patchouli, amber, sandalwood, olibanum and musk. This is classified as a masculine fragrance, but I think it is totally unisex. It's a very nice amber, with a touch of jasmine, very well done.
Have a great day!

Hello everyone -
I'm in K de Krizia for modern dance...but I picked up a yoga class immediately afterwards and I'm not exactly sure K says "yoga" so much, lol. We'll see.
Y'all have a wonderful day!
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
Good ....afternoon everyone ( time seems to fly when you end up sleeping until noon and have tendencies to have a loooong breakfast ) Today is a sunny wintherday here, but I'm starting to get that " spring is on the way" feeling. For sotd Allure called my name. Hope you all have a smooth start of the week.
A dab of vintage Houbigant Chantilly from a decant that Frou Frou gave me in NOLA. B-belle doesn't like it. I miss Frou Frou. I hope she is ok and comes back soon. She was getting ready for a huge relo from Holland to the U.S. last time I communicated with her, lock, stock, horsie & barrel and everything. She may still be in the midst of all that.
Hello All, sitting back at my desk, at least my co-workers are cool. Still wish I was elsewhere...aka Paris...I am wearing vintage Ombre Rose which I have cornered the ebay market on recently. One lovely dealer sent me a few complementary bottles of the EdT which I have layered with the parfum. You guys smell divine as usual.
Good morning! My SOTD is Hermes Equipage (vintage).

Morning, all !
Wearing Sergie's Fleurs d'Oranger . Thanks to my dear friend Primrose for the generous decant.
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.
Lilybelle, my Mr. really dislikes Chantilly, too. I wonder what it is- he likes/loves/at least doesn't mind nearly every powdery oriental I wear. He usually describes them as pretty and clean. He's wrong but whatever.
I miss FrouFrou, too. Hope she comes back soon, she's an original!
No.5 EDP today. Have had a peek at my wears and realized that this is giving my Shalimar a very good run for its money. All I can say is wow, I'm a little in shock!
The nose wants what it wants!
Hi Fleurine. I really enjoyed your Fieldnotes from Paris! So glad you had a nice time.
