SOTD: Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond

Bois Blond is a puzzle.

On one wearing, it smells like a glorious melding of wood and hay and fresh air. Then, on the next wearing, it smells like stale nuts coated in stale varnish. This is, of course, just about my nose - many people consistently adore it.

Today is a stale varnish day. So today I'm resolved not to buy a bottle to replace my rapidly dwindling decant. Today I tell myself that it's a limited edition and I disapprove of limited editions. That it's expensive. That if I fall in love with it and want another bottle, I won't be able to get it. Today, it's no Bois Blond for me!

Next time, I'll once again be staring at my credit card and struggling not to pick up the phone.
