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..."

One of my recent favorites. Extremely unique. Can't wait to purchase a bottle soon. +1 Josh Lobb.
I did something a lil different today I layered some fragrances...
It was a great combination actually Eau des Baux did over power Absolu de Vanille.
First full sampling of Oliver Durbano's Citrine...so far a very good citrus-based fragrance with a lot more going on

HISTOIRES DE PARFUMS
So strange...I really enjoyed this one over the summer, but today I just can't stand it. There is something in here (I'm thinking the vanilla and something that smells like cinnamon) that just keeps popping up. I keep thinking I smell some kind of dessert. I know this doesn't sound that bad, but combined with the castoreum and oud, it just isn't working. Luckily it's starting to enter the drydown.
Early SOTD - a light wearing that showed wonderfully of Eau de Reglisse by Caron...beautiful

Yes, a timeless and wonderful advertisement...it captures a time, place and energy. Fantastic contrast - and I adore black & white!
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
