Portrait of a Lady
Love the mojito opening, but it doesn't really hang around. The rhubarb provides a little interest in the heart notes, but really this is just a rather conservative clean scent once that fun opening disappears. The basenotes are completely clean and anonymous. Elegant and well constructed for what it is.

Comme des Garcons - Eau de parfum
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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"...I don't want to miss that...
