    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..."

    Kokorico by Annick Menardo, for a second day of test wearing because I can't decide if I love it or hate it. Vetiver and patchouli dusted with dry cocoa is such an odd combination, but somehow compelling. Phlegethon, I think this one might interest you.

    I'm way ahead of you. Been wearing it a couple of years now. My husband wears it occasionally, too.

    Afternoon, all. A disappointing amount of snow here, just a light dusting up here on the tops with ne’er a flake down in the village. I’m cosied up in 4160s Goodbye Piccadilly. Happy weekend vibes all around!

    Def' a Chanel Saturday...so what the hell!

    No. 5 Le'Eau by Chanel (from my almost-gone sample)



    This is definitely the most Saturday-afternoon-version of No. 5. Bright, sparkly and effervescent with citrus radiating everywhere. But mind you: I have yet to really *study* No. 5 in all of it's formulations, vintage vs new, etc. I only have smelled vintage EdC, Soap, Eau Premiere and this one. The way I see it, I have all the time in the world to go down that road - No. 5 seems like one of those scents that will be around when I'm an old man here on BN and maybe I will appreciate it more then. Let's see.

    Would you prefer this over No. 19 or vice versa?

    Currently testing two fragrances from Sylvaine Delacourte's Muscs collection: Fiorentina and Dovana. They're both nice, but somehow made me crave No. 5 even before reading today's thread. I'm clearly going to have to wear some later for our surprise Saturday sync. I'm thinking my vintage EdT from the 90s if only because I haven't sprayed my bottle of current EdP yet and want to wait a bit longer before introducing it to oxygen.

    Happy Saturday!
