Montale Aoud Lime
Sprayed this on for the first time in a loooooooong time I remember why....this is strong with only 2 sprays and it's causing me to sneeze. Have received a compliment already. Had to wash some off.
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..."

There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).
Swiss Army Classic
Spirit by Antonio Banderas
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.
"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
-- Eckhart Tolle
