Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. Good Morning. Have all a nice day
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..."

Hi Scentsucker - I had your experience two days ago of my skin devouring fragrances. I understand how you feel now
I'm still craving earth and green, which I usually do this time of year. AbdesSalaam Legni Pregiati is answering that call well. It's a conifer but much more - rough bark, roots, moist musty earth. It's much like sitting on the ground leaning against a black spruce. Quite realistic and evocative.
Good afternoon my lovely smelling scent buddies! Today, I'm wearing another ByKilian, Amber Oud. I'm actually loving it, but it's crazy expensive. I don't know if I love it $400 worth. I read the thread on it and will experiment with a few that people thought were very similar. I'd be interested to hear if anyone knows something that smells very similar. It's just so warm and comforting in this ridiculously cold, icy, snowy weather.
At last - this is enough to try the patience of a saint (and I'm not exactly renowned for mine). Gave up trying to post altogether until now, and guess one or two others probably did the same. Glad to see a few of us eventually made it despite the accursed gremlins .
