    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..."

    After a week of poor sleep, I have just had two nights
    of blissful dreaming (thank you co-codamol!) after my GP
    suggested trying one tablet at night for a month. I know it can
    be addictive but right now I'll try anything.

    I feel energised and ready for the day wearing Alien by Mugler.

    First wearing of Tauer Les Années 25 BIS. Opens with a cheerful citrus wave, then a lovely Guerlain-ish slightly powdery scent. It does smell like a Tauer though. I’m enjoying it.

    I’m just discovering Habit Rogue via sample today and the last few nights. It brings Jicky to mind so it would be a good transition.

    Dior Sauvage Eau de Parfum

    This one was a bit of a quick, thoughtless reach. While it won’t get nods from frag-head peanut gallery (understandable) it has its place. Truth be known, I think this is only my 2nd reach since opting for a FB. My takeaway today is that this makes more of an impression on me during the later Autumn days. I’m finally appreciating the depth beyond the lavender + pepper mainstay. It feels less crunchy and jagged with the anise and vanilla; however, I’m personally struggling to pick out the nutmeg as a contributor in this. Compared to the other heavy Ambroxan artilleries post-2010 this one isn’t an absolute howitzer but it’s also not smoking me out of my comfort zone . . . of the designer set I’m now referencing Prada Luna Rossa Carbon as an appropriately effective use of Ambroxan. But for late dark Autumn this works for me.

    I’ve already received one compliment today, which is crazy. I don’t know why I feel this way; it is though I carry a residual guilt for wearing this and that is absolute rubbish. It really does smell good.

    So, whatever, I’m enjoying my godless Sauvage EdP today. Even if it feels like the perfect fragrance for the Terminator T-1000 crushing all moral opposition to Skynet on Judgment Day.

    Wore Fresh Mint Leaf Cologne by Jo Malone to the gym this morning and then changed into Fields of Provence by Madhat in the locker room and it has lasted pretty much the entire day and through another shower. I love this stuff.

    I’ll go out tonight (next week is my 49th bday) so I’ll probably wear something with oud and too much of it to really stink up the joint
