    Thank you, David - your words are very much appreciated. And hi Pluran! Forgive me, I didn't see that you had left a comment until I saw David's comment just now. I switched off all my BN thread notifications early this year. It's always good to see you.

    Excellent! Thank you, Claire. I need to try more of these, living in a summer climate all year.

    Thank you for yet another great article Claire! Vetiver Blanc is really great in hot weather. Not something I'd normally expect from an attar. Will check out rest of your suggestions.

    That was a fantastically evocative description of Manoumalia! I think of it more as wearable art than just a fragrance, and therefore find few occasions to actually wear it. Wear it on the wrong day and it's like being trapped in a dank, rotting florist shop.


    One oriental that I find good for summer is Shalimar Light. The dollop of lime that they've added aerates the fragrance enough to make it a great summer scent.
    Completely agree with you on Fils de Dieu (du Riz et des Agrumes) by Etat Libre d'Orange. I just bought it to wear this summer!
