    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!

    l'll be trying to keep my cool while sort-of-synching in Eau du Sud today.

    Hello!
    We're about to have a hot weekend, too, but quite manageabele 27 C is predicted. We're planning to go kayaking on Saturday, so it seems like I should take some extra sunscreen with me.
    Friends in British Islands, take care, your temperatures sound super scary!

    I'm synching with Cabochard today (with several spritzes of Acqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg on my neck and blouse for some extra freshness) and I'm finding it nicely cooling this summer morning. I still can't find leather in it, just moss and greenness, but I seem to be getting along with it better with every wear. Good.

    This one is sort of a "treatment" chypre. It is supposed to
    tone the skin and certainly feels very bracing. It's great for
    hot weather. The notes are highly original.

    A fine selection. If you're able to be sure to try the original release of Sous Le Vent. It's magical!

    Good morning everyone Today I'm joining the Sous le vent wearers. I have a large decant in a splash bottle, but I don't think it's vintage. That must have been amazing! Now off to work.... I'm counting the days until finally a holiday now

    Hello, all and happy birthday to The_Cologneist!

    In sync times two, as "classic" chypres ( as opposed to fruity, etc. etc.) are among my very favorites. I've got *three* of my desert island scents on deck for today:

    SOTE will be joining with Jon in Guerlain Sous Le Vent!

    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.

    Sous Le Vent fragrance notes: Bergamot, Lavender, Tarragon, Basil, Verbena, Myrtle, Galbanum, Jasmine, Carnation, Ylang ylang, Tiaré, Orange blossom, Iris, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Peru balsam, Musk.

    Wow, that is some Serious Chypre Sync Sequencing! (Imagine that said in a Daffy Duck impression.)

    Trying out Silver Ambergris today. This is so unlike anything I'd usually buy but I can't help but find myself drawn to it. It's really lovely upon initial spray and can't wait to see how it evolves throughout the day.

    Very glad I went with the set.
    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
