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

12.19.2005

See. There's Evidence.

Today's fragrance: Ormonde Jayne's Ormonde, with notes of cardamom, coriander and grass oil, black hemlock, violet and jasmine absolute, vetivert, cedar wood, amber and sandalwood ... I wonder if there is an Ormonde Jayne "guerlinade" on which she bases her fragrances? This is without a doubt different from, but with a significant inkling of, my beloved Ta'if. Lovely. ♥ Annie

Best Last Words Department:
"Wait a second."
Marquise d'Etoiles [Madame de Pompadour] (1721-1764) ... A lady of the French court and mistress to Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour was a major influence on French politics of the mid-1700s. As she died, she called on God to delay a bit. The delay allowed her to quickly apply rouge to her cheeks.

All in the name of beauty! Well, I suppose that she wanted to look her best when she arrived. Whichever direction...

I like the "last words" as well.

Still have yet to try out any of the Ormonds, sigh. Sounds perfectly heavenly M.

M, have wondered the same thing about a common base for the OJs, and can't make up my mind. What I love is that the fragrances deepen as they age. They are all better after 6 months or so, unlike some others that turn within a year.

There is TOTALLY a base of OJs. It's why I love Ormonde, but can't wear it. There is much eye-poking going on, a la Champaca.
