This blog is for rambling about, well, everything that interests me. Gardening. The Farm. Perfume. Fashion. Photography. Fried chicken. Books. Clutter. Hoarding. Sewing. Writing. Murder Mysteries. Bacon. TV. Movies. Restaurants. Cooking. Oh, and don't forget the cat pictures.

SOTD: Diptyque Tam Dao
So. Sandalwood. All sandalwood - I'm not getting the cedar that others mention. And, well... yeah, it's sandalwood.
It's nice. It would be hard to argue that it's not nice. Pleasant. Smooth. Good-smelling. If I owned a full bottle, I certainly wouldn't be getting rid of it.
But I don't feel the desperate urge to own that full bottle. I'm fonder of my Art of Shaving Sandalwood, eucalyptus and all. Tam Dao is just a little too smooth and linear for me - or I may not have a sufficiently educated nose to find what makes it so well-loved. For me, it's Perfectly Nice, like Philosykos, another Diptyque scent that doesn't capture me.
