Heading to N'awlins..for the plane: Ys Uzac-Pohadka from a Luckyscent sample.
Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

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..."

Wearing a sample of...
Arso by Profumum
I have had this sample sitting on my sample pile, patiently waiting for me to wear it. It was, from reading everyone's comments since it was released, everything that I love about fragrances: Woody, sweet, smoky. And I am happy to report it completely meets my expectations. It's A-MAZING! Gosh, I'm so loving this. The smoky element in this is just so unique. You think 'How many different ways can a perfumer interpret smoke?'. Apparently, many ways. I remember when I was at the CB I Hate Perfume shop in Brooklyn, with BN member Kevin Guyer, we smelled all of his smoke absolutes...I think there was 6 or 7 of them. I loved ALL of them. The smoke note in Arso reminds me of one of them - for lack of a better description is smells like a marshmallow that you've roasted over the fire. That smell! Amazing, it just keeps peeking out around the pine needles, sap, resins. I'm totally enjoying this.
"You are here to enable the Divine purpose of the Universe to unfold. That is how important you are."
