I'm trying to think if I've come across anything like IP.... So you like the honey and ambery vibe of the patchouli ... hmmm. Oh, hey! Have you tried Mazzolari Patchouly? I think it's a lovely, easy-wearing ambery patchouli. Very warm and sweet. I don't get much herbal effect at all....

    And why did I think of the Mazzolari? Because I'm in Mazzolari Lei today. Until this fall, I've assiduously avoided anything that even approached a powdery effect. Couldn't stand it. Now I keep going to Lei *because* of the lovely ambery powder. My nose must be evolving.
    Thanks, ExtremeK, I'll try it. Mazzolari is a huge perfume shop ten minutes walking from my house... They're not very friendly, so I've always kind of snubbed their own brand....

    Have a wonderful night, Dr.G!

    Grrr, is that Levi's ad banner obnoxious! You BN plus people don't know what I'm complaining about but I bet the others do. Can't scroll anywhere near the $@%&(# thing without being swept off to Levi's page and it has rendered BN unusable from the Kindle. I love my Levi's but this makes me feel a lot less charmed by them. Ok, done ranting, thanks for indulging me!

    I just had to take a break from the Goutals because I have my new HdP and it's been just killing me that I've had no time to wear it! Today I couldn't have resisted even if I tried, Tubereuse 1 it is.

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in L'Arte di Gucci this afternoon.


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    PL, I am using the regular computer and that Levi page is here too: first bigger in size and taking about half the screen and showcasing a lady in a short denim dress and a red jacket on top (none of them tickle my fancy, you know?). Then disappearing altogether.

    Caron Acaciosa this PM. Christmas came early: got two packages from the Royal Mail, gotta open them up, drooling already.

    hahaha amazing!!! i tested it on a blotter today too! for the first time i think this is ambery benzoin-patchouly trio...refreshened somewhat by ginger....i dont like amber that much! patchouli is not my favourite as well, but this combination smells nice,its very well balanced, like perfumed up pathcouli if i would wear it? maybe not...becasue amber is a bit dull note for me but definitely not a scrub off !! i think overall this one is nice perfume!and better then expected it smells very ellegant while patchoulis can smell dirty raw

    Yep, I get the same as you from the laptop, Twolf. On the Kindle, I can't touch anything without being diverted to Levi's page and have seen the lookbook enough times to know there's nothing for my tastes there. Least of all that short denim dress with red cardigan; much too kiddie for this grown woman. Will give them some love for their women's 515 jeans though. Cut perfectly straight through the leg, made to flatter, not follow trends- plus come in petite sizes for shorties like me. They're a perfect foundation for building casual yet sophisticated outfits. But I sure hate that ad banner!

    In Le Labo Aldehyde 44 for the evening. Have a nice night, all!
