How in the world did I get so far behind on drawing winners? Sheesh, this requires someone a little more organized than I am! But you can look at this picture of Matthew as your consolation prize if you didn’t win.

YYYYYYYYYYY,,,,, WHY did Antonella and Sanjaya not go home last night? I hate those votefortheworst.com people.
There’s always perfumes in certain lines that you just skip over. Something about the name, the notes or both just hold no appeal — it’s like Perfume Duck-Duck-Goose. L’Artisan’s Bois Farine is such a critter for me. How this could happen when my fantasy Baby Daddy Jean Claude Ellena made it is, well, a conundrum — I’m leaning towards the answer that… I Just didn’t know, sorry, sorry, Jean Claude, forgive me, come back!!! *composes self*
Notes of fennel seed, iris, white cedar, gaiac wood, sandalwood and benzoin. This is nutty, bready goodness and stunning. I get very little cedar in this, it’s there, but not in any dominant position. Does this mean I need to go snag Mechant Loup, Timbuktu and others too? Criminy. The nicest thing about L’Artisans that most people seem to not like is that they are fleeting. I find that pretty perfect! Nooner to two hours of love, and I’m on to the next suitor. Faithfulness in perfume? Pshaw, perish the thought. (ducks from Patricia Lillie)
So what perfumes in what lines have you done Duck-Duck-Goose with?
Speaking of Duck-Duck-Goose, Victoria has posted a more complete list of the notes for the Tom Ford Private Blends, which it looks like won’t be released until May. There’s at least two that are winning me over just on notes — Tobacco Vanilla with notes of tobacco leaf, spice notes, tonka bean, tobacco flower, vanilal, cocoa, dry fruit, sweetwood sap. How can this go wrong? And Tuscan Leather with notes of saffron, raspberry, thyme, olibanum, jasmine, leather, black suede, amberwood. What’s not to love there? I’m getting generally anxious to try these. I know, I know, it’s too many released at once, it’s Tom, he’s a monster (wait, I’m the one that says that), but he at least does things that are not boring. Love or hate Black Orchid, and most people polarized one way or the other, I think it’s an interesting perfume… and one that nobody ignored.
