ointments and perfume delight the heart....
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..."

Floris Mahon Leather from a sample:
Top Notes: Citrus, Jasmine
Heart Notes: Iris,leather,saffron,vetiver
Base notes: amber,labdanum,musk,patchouli,sandalwood,tonka bean
It opens with a jasmine accord with citrus and a touch of iris, then you get a luxurious plush realistic leather accord like you are in a leather store. After a while this gets slightly powdery and sweet and a little woodier, the jasmine makes a re-appearance here too. Smells very nice and well behaved, no Knize Ten here. lol

Derby Day -- but don't have any Derby. Will go instead with
L'Eau Frappee by IUNX
I wore this first thing in the morning (it's sunny & hot) and now I've reapplied it this afternoon (I'm painting my kitchen and sweating up a storm). My decant is almost all gone. One of my best citrus favorites. Very natural smelling.
"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
