    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Wednesday, 5th August, 2020

    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..."

    I'm trying out Ariana Grande's Cloud today from the sample. It's sweet and mineralic. I'm not a fan, but I see why it's popular, it radiates nicely.

    Jon, the lavender field looks magical.

    I recalled reading in one of the threads it's a cheaper alternative to MFK 540 Baccarat Rouge, that's one I dislike a lot.

    I'm not a fan of Baccarat Rouge either. Cloud is not a dupe but they do share the synthetic sweet-mineralic vibe, so I guess if you like or dislike one, you're likely to feel similarly about the other. Cloud is less sweet and more mineralic to my nose, I found Baccarat a maltol bomb similarly to Pink Sugar, just much more expensive smelling and with much more pronounced strawberry. I enjoy Pink Sugar as a cheap, cheerful and lovely scent, but not for the niche prices (I agree that BR seems to be well made though). The reviews of BR seem to be wildly different - everyone seems to perceive it differently and pick up on different facets. Some people love it, some dislike it, some cannot smell it at all.

    We are still without power. They say the earliest it will be back up is tomorrow evening but could take up to a week...

    Today I am doing a comparative test of Golden Cattleya and Marti Gras
    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage

    I hope power is restored to your block soon, 24 Faubourg.

    This week so far has been just Mure et Musc Extreme for me. Feeling what I guess is stress from new house, repairs, moving, work-from-home, the work is not more intense but the pace is relentless, just work and breaks are spent cleaning the kitchen or making food for supper and weekends spent doing stuff at the new house, no rest for the wicked I guess. The Mure et Musc Extreme is a very comfortable smell, but good in the summer, not cozy just happy/relaxed.
