    This is an interesting leather. While not overly pungent, the scent has an animalic quality that's as much equine as it is equestrian. I'm digging it. It remains to be seen how Mrs. S. feels.

    I must say I’m surprised that you’d be a devoted fan of Eau d’Hermes and not get along with Jicky! They don’t smell alike, but share a certain spirit in the way their unwashedness is joyfully expressed. Perhaps I will share some EDP. Which vintages have you tried? I surprisingly found the vintage EDT to be softer and sweeter, less raunch...and quieter.

    True, but there are some nice ones here in Seattle, possibly not authentic French-owned, but beats a blank during a pandemic.

    I have to say, Guerlain did a miraculously good job with the recent EDP. It smells almost exactly like the Extrait and seems about a strong/robust, making it perhaps one of the best values in perfumery, given the cost of the Extrait (modern or vintage).
    Interesting...I'll need me some Jicky soon the way I'm going through my small edt bottle

    I know! I'm surprised too! I just don't seem to get along with Guerlains.

    It sounds charming, but are those pineapples on the label?!?

    (And if it turns out that Charlemagne and/or Napoleon had sceptres with pineapples on them, I'm going to stop asking questions altogether.)

    I have no idea about those. Pinecones? Acorns? They’re certainly not deer musk pods, and PL is a musky leather. In any case, I think you might like this.

    In the 17th century the pineapple became a symbolic mani*festation of the divine right of kings lol, but yes it was.

    Also this "During the expansion of trade in 18th-century Britain, home-goods companies began to cash in on the pineapple as a status symbol. Wedgwood, makers of fine china, began to produce tableware with pineapple themes for the upper classes. Carved-stone pineapples appeared on plinths outside grand manor houses, pronouncing to passersby the largesse and high standing of the family within. They adorned carriages, topped garden temples, figured in countless paintings, and were turned into enormous sculptures gracing country gardens. Pineapples had become synonymous with good taste, nobility, and limitless wealth."

    This could explain the horrendous pineapple chandeliers in our house when we bought it. Perhaps the previous owners wanted to convey good taste and limitless wealth, but they only succeeded in making it look like they'd stolen the fixtures from a Tommy Bahama outlet.

    Wow! I have a vintage decant of this and CAN NOT wear it. It's straight "dookie" (excuse my language ) at first sniff. I can't get past it! Mouchoir de Monsieur has that same stink in beginning to my nose. Maybe my nose is all jacked up . These are two "loved" fragrances here that I can't wear.

    King Charles II being presented with the first pineapple grown in England, circa 1677 (detail). Note the King Charles Spaniels at his feet, another legacy of his reign.




    Here in the American South, pineapples are still very common in architecture, especially in Charleston, which was named for Charles II and founded in 1670.

    No. 5 parfum (1921) by Ernest Beaux for Chanel

    Yesterday I was doing some tidying up in the perfume drawers and found a bottle of extrait of No. 5 that I had no idea I owned. It wasn't even listed in my wardrobe. That blew my mind a little. How could I buy a half-ounce of extrait and forget about it? It's not like I'm PStoller or anything.

    So I decided to wear it today and try to divorce myself from its associations. Turned out that wasn't really possible, but I did enjoy those fizzy lemon aldehydes. That intensely abstract floral/powdery middle was a bit much for me, but then I remembered how much I like the far, far drydown, when it's severely decayed and the civet and vetiver blends with some human sweat. I'm pretty sure Purecaramel can relate to that.
