my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

I Love the Malevolent Mouse


Today's fragrance: Christian Dior's Dioressence with notes of violet, rosebud, geranium, cinnamon, patchouli ... they went for the sweetness in this one, but I really like it anyway. It's an oriental that -- so far -- is softpedaling all that makes it oriental. Bet I'll like it even more as the day progresses and it drills down into basenotes. "Drills down." All us perfume fans use oil industry terminology. heh.

You're making me want to resample that one. Love those notes. Oh -- and please read my comment posted in response to your "views" post. Were you in the Residential College?

Mireille -- I was in the RC too! In fact, my Intensive French professor was named... Mireille! :-)

My only regret is that you and I didn't overlap. :-(
