    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 and best to everyone. Manos Gerakinis Immortelle for me today: notes include cinnamon, immortelle, milk, brown sugar, benzoin, sandalwood, patchouli. A lovely, rich, deep confection, sweet and delicious. The immortelle is handled masterfully here, with just enough to lend a burnt maple presence without drowning everything else out.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Terre d’Hermes Vetiver today. It’s strong enough to permeate through all my layers of clothing on this chilly morning. I sure like it!

    Have a good day.

    After nearly two weeks of dry days, it's raining. I'm wearing Stash to try and keep warm, I poked the thermostat up a bit, too.

    Those notes sounds lovely...and I'll always remember man's immortal pickle but I don't think Google will pull up the fragrance if I type that in. My mind is a hall of mirrors.

    Hello!

    Testing Alghabra Parfums Ottoman Treasure today.



    Oh, my. I'd been a bit hesitant because of the oud, but whether it's because it's "white" oud or just handled with a very deft touch, it's deliciously turpentine-y without inducing a headache or smelling like a house-painting project, and the great, spicy and green rest of it is just lovely. Sigh. I think I may need to put my credit cards in a jar of water and freeze them again.

    Spectacular Saturday to all!


    Ottoman Treasure fragrance notes: White oud, Cistus labdanum, Patchouli, Olibanum, Pink pepper, Gurjun balsam, Amber, Moss, Vetiver.
    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
