I don't know much about medicine, but I know what I like. -- S.J. Perelman
from a sample
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..."

There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).
From a sample:
Opus IV by Amouage
SotD - Silver Mountain Water by Creed
Today I am layering some old samples I have at school of 2 sprays of TV and one spray of TL as the base. I like it a lot, and it kind of reminds me of Cuirs by Carner Barcelona.
YSL La Nuit De l'Homme
La Nuit de L`Homme Le Parfum
Tom Ford Italian Cypress
Snowed in, working from home, and enjoying fragrances I usually don't wear to the office. Right now it's YSL Opium pour Homme EdP. Great stuff.

Shalimar (Body Cream + vintage PdT + extrait) by Guerlain
"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
-- Eckhart Tolle
SotE - Chergui.
Penhaligon's English Fern
Paul Smith Story.
A truly delicious layering of Santa Maria Novella's Iris (which I like but don't love by itself) and SMN's Opoponax (which I love, love, love by itself), resulting in an HdP 1740 or Lorenzo Villoresi's Virginia vibe (i.e., incensy and immortelle-y).

Moustache edt concentre by Rochas.
Probably not what you guys want to read here, but today has been the worst day of the year for wearing fragrance. I have a nasty cold, though fortunately nothing too bad, meaning I can't wear a scent.
Going to take a hot shower before bed and may spritz something light on then, to brighten my mood.
Snarky is as snarky does.
Vintage YSL Pour Homme
“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
