comme de garcons series 4 vettiveru, just when i hoped we'd get another hot day in london, it dropped from 25c to 16c, in preparation for hurricane beryl which will be hitting uk EXACTLY during the queen's jubilee's celebrations, temperatures expected on sunday will be a mere 11c. i'm sure that will not dampen our general enthusiasm but it will definitely spoil some street parties (including mine).

Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Vintage YSL pour Homme Haute Concentration by Yves Saint Laurent
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..."

"Human interaction can be hell. Or it can be a great spiritual practice."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Coromandel by Chanel
A voluptuous Oriental fragrance -- an olfactory depiction of the lacquered Coromandel screens Mademoiselle cherished. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2007, the elaborate scent unfolds in undulating detail, starting with an amber vibrato, followed by dry notes of Frankincense and Benzoin, then, soulful woody notes that add elegance and depth to the sensuous accord's striking trail.
Five that I am enjoying right now
1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
4) Devin by Aramis
5) Coromandel by Chanel

Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent
Good late afternoon everyone.
Ah, what a day! Another exam-test this morning. This one was particularly difficult and tough. I'm afraid that there's a chance I'll have to re-take it. Photochemistry is soo difficult. On the other hand I just found out I passed my last week's intellectual property protection test.
Right after the test I jumped into my white lab coat to carry on some experiment stuff for my university first degree project. I spent more than 6 hours in lab today which made me very exhausted but... Everything went so well that my research is absolutely finished now. The only thing I have to do is to work with the data I gathered, analyse them and take conclusions.
SotD was Jean-Charles Brosseau Bois d'Orient - this one was dull and uninteresting from the very beginning. It's less woody than the name would suggest. Sillage was almost non-existent and longevity wasn't outstanding.
SotE will be Pour Un Homme de Caron - I bought it last year and enjoyed it for a few months, but I lost my love for it without any particular reason. That happens, right?
