… one other of the samples from my (pretty) current sampling. I did a critical woo-hoo a bit in the past on Arquiste Ella with its 1970s chypre vibe.
I’m not so eager on Arquiste Nanban despite the fact that I discovered the again story and the notes listing actually severely intriguing: a galleon with samurai crusing to Japan in winter 1618 stuffed with spices. Notes embody black pepper, black tea, Cade (what is that this? I can’t discover something), espresso, copaiba balm (appears like a type of pine or balsam), frankincense, leather-based, myrrh, Osmanthus, saffron, sandalwood and styrax. Simply sounds an incredible combo. I used to be significantly taken by the concept of tea, Osmanthus, saffron (Theo Fennell Scent) and sandalwood.
Alas, no. On me, that is very pepper-heavy and it comes throughout because the odor of Band-Aids. That’s not disagreeable, thoughts. It’s simply not what was promised by the notes listing. I may see this smelling superb – however I suppose my chemistry simply doesn’t do it justice. I need to like the concept of smelling of Band-Aids however I simply can’t get myself there.
However whereas we’re on this fragrance, any solutions for black tea fragrances you like? I’ve this concept L’Artisan used to do (or perhaps nonetheless does) a extremely critical, heavy-duty (Lapsang Souchong) one.
I woke this morning with the movie Moonstruck in my head.
In a distinct world, we might be getting back from vacation at this time. A protracted-haul flight after which making our approach from London again down right here. One other time I inform myself.
So, why Moonstruck? I feel as a result of I used to be pondering journey and for a lot of summers we visited NY to see household and stayed in Brooklyn. A long time in the past, once I lived in Brooklyn, it was within the Carroll Gardens neighbourhood and I ranged round Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights — elements of Moonstruck are set in all three.
It’s a movie I really like – actually, severely, completely: a unusual story concerning the love of individuals for one another and for household, but in addition for explicit music and locations. Cher is superb and Nick Cage is definitely moderately sane and likeable.
At one level, Cher sprays herself with fragrance (if I’m recalling appropriately) however I feel (inform me if I’m fallacious) it was one thing decanted into an atomiser – ie, no label.
Anyway, I may see her character utilizing one thing large and spicy, but in addition perhaps one thing nearer to the physique however nonetheless having presence. The film got here out in 1987, so maybe large 1980s one thing… however her character was a bit quaint… So, I regarded up which perfumes have been launched in 1987 and the one factor that made me go ‘hmmm’ was Byzance by Rochas. However, clearly, the character may have worn one thing older, fairly classical (perhaps Youth Dew).
Anyway, have you ever seen the movie? Ideas? When you have, what do you assume Loretta may need worn?
