Creed Santal Imperial
Thread: SOTD: Wednesday, April 4, 2012
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..."

Norfolk Lavender Cologne by Norfolk Lavender (vintage juice)
As I posted before, this one was not love-at-first-sniff. I like many lavenders and even the basic ones usually have something to offer that I can enjoy, but this one has a very disruptive, brutal musk note that comes charging out of the gate, right away. The lavender is basic, nothing special, non-medicinal...it doesn't smell synthetic (thank goodness) but it's not stellar quality either. Today, I really doused myself with it, to see if it wore any better. As a result the room where I sprayed it (my office) was saturated with smell (oops). It's been an hour and while this is nice, it's nothing to get excited over.
Oh well, I have another vintage lavender (Crabtree & Evelyn) I bought from eBay this week, on it's way.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in ó or donít, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
