    Good morning all !. Dark rose / patchouli / leather seemed like an appropriate combination for Ine's gothic day. What a shame that a house capable of this magnificent creation has descended into such mediocrity in recent years

    I am outraged by the attack in Nice. Why some people think that blind violence is better than peaceful coexisting and calm ways to solve the arising problems is beyond me.

    foxbins, I hope your headache stopped and you feel much better today.
    More feel better wishes to everyone.

    Jon, I haven't smelled L'Arte, but it seems interesting. I do like both Gucci Guilty Absolutes a lot - men's and women's - though, especially women's.

    I'm joining CuddleCat in Ineespene's Gothic Day with Moonlight Patchouli by Van Cleef and Arpels. I like this perfume a lot and the only thing that stops me from just buying it is that I feel it would take the same niche in my wardrobe as Gucci Guilty Absolute - they are quite different and would not be redundant, but they do have a similar dark and broody vibe. Moonlight Patchouli is more aggressive and casual, more leathery, while Guilty Absolute is calmer, more melancholic and more elegant.

    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, all and sharing the outrage and grief over the attack in Nice.

    For [ine]'s Gothic Day, I'm in sync with a layering I planned because just one of these wasn't dark or sweet enough, respectively.

    Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance layered with Amouage Opus VII. I'm finding I need to keep the two in balance with a touch more LV than O, but the overall effect is rather fun.




    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Lady Vengeance fragrance notes: Lavender, Bergamot, Rose, Vanilla, Patchouli, Ambroxan

    Opus VII fragrance notes: Galbanum, Pink pepper, Cardamom, Nutmeg, Fenugreek, Oud smoke, Patchouli, Ambrox, Leather, Ambergris, Costus root, Muscone, Sandalwood, Olibanum, Cypriol

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Caron Parfum Sacré, original 1990 EDP. I seem to be craving spices, but then when I put them on, they all smell too strong to me. (I think an Amouage might render me unconscious.) This one might get tissued off a bit just to tone it down.

    Can't do the sync today. Just couldn't face a Gothic scent.

    I felt crummy yesterday but feel better today, though I woke up to gray skies, rain, and the sewer workers banging and hammering things. So nothing gothic this morning, maybe later. Today I want cheerful, so I'm wearing Bombay Bling. I defy anyone to wear this and not smile.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    I totally agree with you. Bombay Bling is joyful and unashamedly flamboyant.

    I’m twinned with easyfish today in UNUM LAVS.

    And I’m totally Gothic today because it’s a gorgeous outside - bright, cloudless blue skies, warm sun, temps in the 50s.... And here I am in dark, dank incense! Iconoclasm at its best!
