    Good morning kalli , good morning all !.





    SotD is the newly acquired Arquiste Boutonniere No 7.





    No reason for the blokes to be wary despite the feminine connotations of the flower. This is as much a vetiver compositon as it is gardenia, and the two compliment each other very nicely. Sheer elegance .
    Also left Fortnum and Mason laden with assorted chocolate truffles, which are proving to be a rather nice accompaniment to this morning's coffee.


    Wishing everyone a great day.

    Yeah, another perfect picture, kalli! Warm coordinated colors as if they came off the 17th century Turkish textiles. Sleepless again?

    Will go work soon, in Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee, pure citrus with vivacious mint accents that dries down to warm and fluffy fuzziness without too much musk. Amazing how people at Annick G's can take simple even boring ingredients and make a pleasing chunk of nature out of them, which -- in its turn -- together with our personal charm and skin warmness, creates magic!

    Happy Easter.

    Morning All,

    Hmm, Jon. Those truffles sound delish. Seems we were ships in the night yesterday, as I passed through F&N also. One day, we really ought to meet for a sniff and a beer.

    Habit Rouge ( EdT ) today, from my new bottle.

    If I can find a shop that's open today, I'll get some carrots for a carrot cake.

    Have a lovely Sunday, folks.

    I am just trying to score points with you Twolf, hehe. Ya, I like that picture and the symbolic side of it.

    I don't dig mint but that AG bottle is totally awesome looking, I'd almost want it for the bottle..but haven't sniffed the juice yet..it would be cool if I liked it...I do dig pine, has me interested. The regular bottle or the butterfly bottle, both are nice. I've been a big Van Gogh fan for quite some time.. so..of course I like the name, Starry Night.

    Jon, I love that bird popping out of the egg! May I have a truffle?. One has to have a little chocolate on Easter, no? And also any other day of the year? No?

    Fetish Parfum (not Fetish pour homme Parfum)

    Bergamot, Lemon, and Lime, add a touch of dynamism to this rich, leathery composition which has touches of Neroli, Violet, Fig, and Jasmine at its heart which adds an unusual sweetness to a base which is redolent with Oakmoss, Patchouli, Vetiver, leather-like Labdanum, and Leather, with swathes of smoky Castoreum enlivened by Pepper, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, and Cardamom, nestling on sensual base of Vanilla, Benzoin, Elemi, Ambergris, and Musk.

    I got up early, will fetch the SUnday NYT from the stoop, read a little, then snooze a little longer, which has me thinking Wallace Stevens (see below). Tabac Blond, from a generous sample sent by a generous friend, in the crook of each arm, just for me. Balahé by Leonard on neck and wrists. This well-mannered relative of Habnita makes that little bit of TB go a long way.


    Sunday Morning (excerpt)—Wallace Stevens

    Complacencies of the peignoir, and late
    Coffee and oranges in a sunny chair,
    And the green freedom of a cockatoo
    Upon a rug mingle to dissipate
    The holy hush of ancient sacrifice.
    She dreams a little, and she feels the dark
    Encroachment of that old catastrophe,
    As a calm darkens among water-lights.
    The pungent oranges and bright, green wings
    Seem things in some procession of the dead,
    Winding across wide water, without sound.
    The day is like wide water, without sound,
    Stilled for the passing of her dreaming feet...

    Jon, you're a doll. You are giving those truffles a run for the money in the sweetness department. Enjoy them!
    Hedonist, big congrats on the posting milestone, wonderful!

    SOTD is vintage Diorissimo.

    Happy Easter and a lovely Sunday to all. Xxoo

    Pure perfume, from samples
    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..."

    Today would have been my Grandma Stella's birthday. When asked her birth date, she always answered March thirty-last. I don't remember any certain fragrance she wore, so in her honor I'm wearing Tocca Stella.

    Happy Easter to all who celebrate!
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Good morning and Happy Easter! I've got to scramble to get the leg of lamb roast into the oven. Speared all over with garlic cloves and rubbed with rosemary, mmm!

    SotD is Diabolo Rose as the mint will go beautifully with the lamb.

    Happy Easter to one and all!

    The lamb has been eaten, the Eton Mess consumed and the
    Easter eggs distributed. Now a few hours to myself with the
    papers and a cup of coffee - bliss!

    I chose Donna Karen Gold for today with it's Easter ham connotations

    SOTD was Ghost for work today. Feeling the effects of that lost hour of sleep, thanks to the start of British Summertime. Yawn!
