    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..."

    Good morning! I am having a "rhubarb" kind of day and
    not only smell of them but have made some rhubarb and
    ginger gin that I intend to imbibe later on towards the evening.

    I do like this note in perfumery and find it quite uplifting and energising.
    I used to buy YR Un Jour se Leve, which also featured rhubab until they
    discontinued it.

    Hello, everyone, and seconding Tdem's enthusiasm for kewart's infused gin. Rhubarb and ginger? Sign me right up.

    Going the jammy sweet floral route today in Indult Manakara, which apparently features lychee.



    I'm generally not a tropical fruits gal (okay, coconut and pineapple are major exceptions- love those notes!), and I find the texture of actual lychee problematic, but this fragrance is quite nice. Since it's a Francis Kurkdjian creation, I'm also looking forward to new layers of olfactory experiences as it dries down... Despite the fact that my cold has now moved to my chest while continuing to wreak some havoc on my nose.

    Ah, well. Wickedly wonderful Wednesday to all!


    Manakara Notes: Rose, lychee
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Bottega Veneta Knot for this hot Wednesday day. The temperature has risen but the summer rains have not yet started, everything is sort of hot and dry waiting for the rain. Good beach weather, though.

    Kewart, that sounds sooo good. I too like a rhubarb note, and ComDiva now made me wonder if rhubarb might combine well with lychee (which I find almost identical to the smell of elderflower). Tart plus sweet.

    We're forecast to have a whole week of +100F/38C temperatures starting Friday, so time to break out the Big Green Artillery. I'll start gently, and work my way up to the garrigues.

    Good morning all! Just back from a dental checkup followed by a trip to the beauty supply. I have clean teeth and scored some freebies (new shampoos & conditioners to help hold all the wild, vivid colors are among the most interesting-YAY, science!). My scent is appropriately primpy, in Misia EdT.
