Good Morning Perfumistas,
A New Day has come – I wish you, and you, and you, a sparkling year ahead as we sort through a Jumble of Juices in 2014. Or should that be a Jungle of Juices?
My head is still sparkling from last night! How are you feeling?
A Scented Belt
I stepped out on the last night of 2013 wearing a scented belt, and a scent on each wrist. One was composed by the son of Edmond Roudnitska, Michel and the other by Sandrine Videault. I am not reviewing these yet as I have so far only had one night with them and a wonderful night it was. A couple more nights and I will be ready to write up some impressions of these much anticipated Magnolia Grandiflora ‘fumes.
Today, the first of 2014, my wrists and elbow crooks have turned blue and green. I will only give you the notes as a teaser for some upcoming reviews from a house that captured my complete attention recently called Fragrance du Bois. Well, I love a walk through the woods, especially where the agarwood grows wild. There are so many trees here it may even be a plantation. The Blue one is how I imagine I would like to smell at a skin scent level but it hovers at a higher dimension than that. Let’s call that diffused dimension, serene.
I have listed the notes but not under the real name of the ‘fumes.
cardamon, nutmeg, mandarin,
myrrhe essence, amber and a certain wood
bergamot, ginger, cardamon,
coriander seeds, nutmeg, geranium,
vetiver, cedar wood, musk and a certain wood
As it is Holiday time I thought we would start the year with some reading. The next post which will follow shortly is a book review. Let’s start this New Year with Perfume.
Are you ready?

Right, I will translate out of Australian into English; mainly as it took me a long time to figure it out myself.
