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: Parfumerie Generale Papyrus de Ciane
The problem is, I can't smell it today.
Now, I don't mean that I can't smell anything, the way that I can't smell anything with some of the l'Artisans. When I first sprayed on Papyrus de Ciane, there was a modest amount of scent, with a very distinct "top notes" fizzy vibe. I waited eagerly for the middle and base. And then, even with four sprays, the whole thing just vanished.

Oh, no-- you're kidding!! I got so excited when I saw your headline, because I *love* PdC-- I didn't make my way through the entire PG line, but I will say, there's some original stuff there!ReplyDelete
Now I kick myself that I didn't buy a bottle of it when I had the chance. I'm not a huge green fan in the way that I know you are, but PdC has this arid, almost dusty wood note that's like the dry wood sensation of being in a sauna. (As I remember it from my one enraptured sniff months ago... Why, why did I not buy...?)
Maybe try again tomorrow?
It is dismaying. :( I'm hoping that my nose is just being temporarily recalcitrant.
Could you still buy? Onlineishly?
Bizarro! This one lasted on me most of the day, and I didn't enjoy a minute of it, sadly. Too spiky and resinous. But fair play to PdG - they always come up with novel things, whether they are my cup of tea or not. And Bois Naufrage was lovely, and I would like to get my hands on a sample.ReplyDelete
Hey, flittersniffer! Yes, everything they do is worth trying, whether you end up liking it or not. And, ooh. Bois Naufrage had fallen off my radar; think you for reminding me of it.ReplyDelete
oh I'm sad too - I LOVE this one! *waves - I haven't visited many blogs recently and am trying to catch up!*ReplyDelete
Yo! Glad to see you, Frida! It's weird, it's just weird. I do have a fragrance (Navegar) that utterly vanishes on me at some times, and is a nice solid cedar fog at other times. So I have Hopes that I'll be able to smell it someday in some other weather or condition of my nose.ReplyDelete
