I’ve not had much time for working on scents the last few days, but I did sneak a quick try of Patricia de Nicolai’s Temps d’Une Fete. I’ve mentioned that I have trouble finding green florals I like, and here’s one that worked for me, at least on first sampling. It’s a very pretty floral with hyacinth and narcissus notes, along with green grass, moss, and hay notes, and a soft base with some sandalwood. Luckily for me the hyacinth is not too strong but the narcissus is lovely in the heart, and the green notes make it feel spring-like. It feels classical and unlike the modern green florals that often don’t do much for me. I’ll need to try this one again when I have time.
I’m working to get orders out and to get Ambre Noir, Champagne de Bois, and Sienna Musk back on the scent list.
I’ll close the sample drawing at 5 pm CA time and will do the draw in the evening and post the winners Friday morning. I’ll ask for addresses Friday and will mail out over the weekend.
We had airplanes and helicopters over our house for 30 minutes this evening because of a small fire very close to us. We could see and smell the smoke and watched the planes work until they got it under control from the ground. It’s amazing how fast they catch these flare-ups and put them out, thankfully. This one was small but very close and the planes were seriously close to the ground.
