Just wanted to check in today. We had a glorious pink sunrise this morning! The light cloud cover sometimes makes the sky glow pink as the sun rises. We look out over a valley where the fog often rolls in overnight, but the fog breaks up sometime in the morning and if it is just right as the sun comes up the sky is beautiful. Wish I could get a picture.
I tried Tom Ford’s Noir de Noir on one wrist yesterday with a bigger spritz than the first time I tried it, and the most prominent notes to me are plumy rose with a woodsy patchouli base. The patch comes out very strong on me, a little more than I’d like, but not as strong certainly as L’Artisan’s VdR. I like the rose in Noir de Noir though and it lasted all day. Don’t know if the patch is this prominent on others; it’d be interesting to sniff it on someone else. I find I need to test things a couple times to really see what they do (sometimes I don’t apply enough the first time, and I just get a better feeling for the scent on my skin after a few wears).
Saturday I took the tonka back out of Gardenia Musk because it was going too sweet, and I’m trying a couple new additions to it. Will see if this works better.
