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..."

Love And Tears by By Kilian
It seems like this summer, I've been craving white flowers to wear in the heat so I find this easy to wear on this hot, crisp, Saturday afternoon. Nonetheless, I cannot imagine buying this ultra-expensive jasmine/orange blossom fragrance when I could get the same effect/pleasure in wearing something about 1/4 of the price of this. It's not better than A La Nuit by Serge Lutens, that's for sure.

"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
KUDOS FROM ME TO ANY MAN WHO CONFIDENTLY WEARS JOOP!
This is so very much *THE* scent of the Dawn of the 90's--and i went through three bottles of it in 1991 I think--maybe earlier--it had just come out, and I was in my late 80's "End of an Era" Pink Phase--and Oh, How I loved it! I would TOTALLY wear it today--closest I have would be Avignon bit that will skew a bit Churchy for today. Now I want a bottle of JOOP!
I'm thinking I will *DARE* to try
Again--though last time i wore it I was damn near eaten alive by everyone who came near me. I got so much attention It scared me--and I wore SO LITTLE: ONE SPRAY that I WALKED INTO--so I feel as though I have a bit of "Magic Potion" pent up in that bottle......

Snarky is as snarky does.
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.
