    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..."

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday, Red!

    After a rainy start, it's brightened up nicely here. l'm giving a second wearing to my sample of Jasmins Marzipane, another dupe of Organza, for my late shift.

    Hello, everyone, and a special birthday shout-out to Redneck Perfumisto! Hope you have an excellent day and year!

    Zipping through today's thread, hednic has given me an idea for tomorrow, but right now I'm reveling in one of two bottles I bought for my birthday (back in August, though I think I actually purchased them both in September, so was wishy-washy about posting them on "Today I Bought" ), Orizia L. Legrand Chypre Mousse, the new formulation.




    Oh my goodness, I think this stuff is gorgeous. Quarry have you sniffed this one? It doesn't get much greener...

    Wonderful Wednesday, everyone!

    Chypre Mousse (new) fragrance notes: Wild mint, Clary sage, Wild fennel, Green shoots, Oak moss, Galbanum, Angelica, Fern, Wild clover, Mastic, Violet leaf, Vetiver, Pine needles, Oak moss, Mushroom, Fresh humus, Roasted chestnut, Leather, Labdanum, Balsam.
    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 Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Good morning and birthday wishes to Redneck Perfumisto!

    Jailia for today. There is maaaybe one more wear left in this bottle, and I love this scent, but it's not yet cool enough weather that I want to order any perfumes - they get too hot in shipping in the warm weather.

    I guess it's time to save and budget.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Chanel No. 19 Poudre as a perfume palate cleanser today to break the spell Heritage has over me. Indian Summer is on the way and the temperature is going back up into the 90s soon. Around here, summer doesn’t really end until November, followed by a few weeks of autumn, and then onto a mild winter.

    Happy birthday, RedneckPerfumisto!

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    HAVE A HAPPY DAY ALL DAY LONG, REDNECK

    Yep, teardrop, that sharp-shooter eye is partly credited for the 10-point buck we have now processed and packed in the freezer.
    Nope, ComDiva, haven't smelled Legrand. Greener than J-L Scherrer?

    Some observtions from Saturday's Merz Apothecary meet-up: I love the store for its soap and candle offerings. None of its wonderfully niche fragrance brands worked for me except those I already own from Tauer and Diptyque. I bought two of my favorite soaps (Pre de Provence and Diptyque) and a Nest candle in Apricot Tea. One of the pleasant things about the Merz shop is that you can tell it's a perfume shop as soon as you walk in, but that's also a drawback as a person samples perfumes because you can't escape the ambient scent conglomerate. The owner even suggested stepping outside to cleanse my sniffer, but given how windy it was, I opted to not. About the attendance: While everyone was lovely, almost everyone was a stranger since we'd raked people in from Facebook and Fragrantica. I enjoyed seeing Jux, Krooze, and Furriner again. Because most attendees were strangers, I also never thought to take a photo while at Merz.

    If you visit Merz, I recommend the nice little restaurant/coffee shop across the street: Selmarie.

    20191012_152902.jpg

    Spirit Rose and I thoroughly combed through the shops in the Oak Street area. I thought the Gucci display photo worthy. I'd no idea they had fragrance oils (the little green bottles which are even smaller than they look) for $300.

    20191012_152945.jpg

    Since it's been a few days, my recall of details are beginning to fade, but I can relate the highlights for me were two of the Prada Infusions: Mandarine and Iris Cedre. I have a sample of one coming in the mail and need to do same with the other. On our second sweep through, we visited Hermes before heading home, and I took a big wet neck-spritz of Bel Ami Vetiver. That was the best thing I smelled all day. Bel Ami is one of those scents that's simply “me,” and the vetiver version is just as good.

    Today I'm raisin-toasty warm in New Haarlem.
