    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..."

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Oud Ispahan from my brand new bottle ordered from Hannah at the Chicago Saks Fifth Avenue. I discovered it at the Chicago meetup and got enabled by extremeK. Love it! It’s right up there with Coromandel as a fragrance that’s really and truly me. It came in a big, white Christian Dior box tied with twine affixed with wax seal. The fragrance bottle comes encased in a padded cylindrical container placed inside a cloth pouch. At the bottom of the big box was a pillow-like pad with the Christian Dior logo. The order came with samples from the Dior Privee line, Tom Ford, and by Kilian. Oh, a lovely yoga mat was also included. That’s a lot of luxury for $237 including tax!

    Happy Saturday! We'll be on vacation and not internet-ing for a week. Today I'm in a very judicious application of Smell Bent Prairie Nymph, which is beautiful and deadly strong. One spray shared between wrists and it is lovely.

    I am multi-tasking this morning, doing laundry, dusting, and watching the U.S. Open. I wish I could make shots like these guys--I've never broken 100. I'm wearing Ginger Ciao, a bottle I got at the meetup swap. I read teardrop's review, and I have the same oily sheen on my wrists. It's all coconut on me now, a note I like better in VIW and Kerosene Unforsaken. Hope the ginger turns up the volume soon.

    Robin, have a wonderful vacation! Going somewhere nice?

    foxbins, l agree that Unforsaken is a better interpretation of the same idea. l just wish l could have smelled more ginger in it.

    Post-shower, Iím wearing Galop díHermes, one of my Chicago purchases, enabled by Mike and foxbins It is SO gorgeous.

    Trilby Lark, youíre welcome It smells amazing on you. Those deep, smoky, wood infused fragrances are MAGIC on you.

    I've been working to decant 100mls from my ginormous bottle of Cuir Cannage for foxbins, so now I have to update my SotD. Luckily, it layers nicely over Galop. I smell so awesomely naughty.

    I still can't believe Luca Turin missed the double entendre with Cuir Cannage. Or maybe he was just too classy to call attention to it. So not a problem for me.

    Sounds like Saks sent a true package of delight.

    Glad to hear Robin and teardrop are kickin' back.

    I had a good destructive/productive (weeding/transplanting) morning in the landscape. Since I got a free pedometer with my Yves Rocher order, I learned today that I do happen to get in the 10,000 steps some prescribe, although I dare say few do it pushing a garden cart or toting a watering can. Now we're enjoying our Saturday afternoon sci fi, and I'm wearing the easy-going Lolita Lempicka.

    It's nice, but I doubt you'd like it. A good, handsome fougere, sort of between Fougere Royale and something like Green Irish Tweed, but much more towards the latter (though quite different from either, of course).
