For an air of mystery, I am wearing Dune. She's an odd one, she is.

I believe it was Quintis Santal Spirit and I did get something else as well as soap. I'm sure that I'll have to look at the other selections when I'm there as well! You know, something for this trip Thanks so much for the recommend. I'm really looking forward to it.Which perfumes did you order, Tea_Lilly? Hopefully, your trip is early in 2024 and you don't have too long of a wait before getting your hands on them. I'd love to hear/read your impressions of the perfumes when you do get to try them.
Grimoire is very interesting! I regret now not having the sample any more...How about d) All of the above?
I can't pick out a single one of the notes in the pyramid for Anatole Breton's magical Grimoire, or that reviewers claim they can detect -- not even the cumin, a note I love. But it still captivates me with the atmosphere it creates: swirling dust off an ancient book that has been sitting for centuries in a stone-walled room that's perpetually swathed in incense. And then the book is handed to you by a monk who smells of (as ClaireV describes) "the sweet, damp, oniony sweat under the arms of an ancient gardener tending a Mediterranean herb garden."
How right you are. On paper, I should love Dune, and whenever I smelled it I thought oh, that is beautiful. But somehow it never really felt like me and I've never wanted to wear it. Beautiful and strange.For an air of mystery, I am wearing Dune. She's an odd one, she is.
