I’m still running down the exact deets about AbdesSalaam Attar Tawaf (profumo.it) being released, when it’s going on sale and where, this is their newest fragrance release, but looks like it’s a kit so you can get the ratio right or use one accord in one area of the body and the other accord somewhere else or blend them together in the ration that’s right for you.. Jasmine accord is made up of jasmine, narcissus and rose. The Oppoponax accord is oppoponax, myrrh and Peru Balsam. Not sure it’s on sale yet. Well, I found it here, but not in the kit where you can whip up the jasmine skank dial to FULL STUN.
I’m not sure what the ratio is on the sample I got, but it’s jasmine that just growls. Purrs first, then growls. I think I need that kit so I can crank up the jasmine even more. At this moment, I”m more than a little feral-smelling, but, lord, I love it. If I could put MORE jasmine and narcissus in here? I swear, I just had heart palpitations thinking about it.
Jasmine lovers, do not walk, do not stop at Go, just get some, seriously, as soon as it’s released, and you can thank me later.
I really did have some other scents to talk about today, several of those Armani private or limited edition thingies. I sat down to write about them, and they are missing. The house cleaned today, and I suspect they got swept off onto the floor or into a trash basket or? I don’t know. I probably did something with them and don’t remember what that was. I’ve been cold working fused glass jewelry pieces, and it could have wound up about anywhere in that mess. Or in the jewelry? Hmmm.
All I got in the first dabs before they went missing is –
I tried the fig one, the La Femme Nacre, and then the Cuir Noir? Yes, I know, this is a way below optimum review of anything, but it’s all I got based on no samples to be found beyond the quick sniff of them last Friday. I’m glad the Nacre is limited to 1,000 bottles, it’s lovely enough, and it’s iris, and I’d be tempted to hunt it down, except it’s so darn expensive. I sure hope they sell off those 1,000 bottles before I come off my austerity plan. Iris IS my Kryptonite. It’s probably a good thing that I lost the sample so I didn’t start obsessing about it.
Have you ever done that? Lost a sample you really, really wanted to play with? Then you keep opening drawers and looking under things, hoping it will pop up out of a place you already looked? Do you ever find them? I bat about .500 on that, if I’m patient and keep looking for the next six months. Finally one day, I move something and there the little darlings are.
Provided I don’t lose it! I do have enough Tawaf to share. Yummy! so I’ll pump out like 4 samples to commenters from my little bit I have. What is the most regretted sample loss? The sample you had in your hot little hand, laid down somewhere and have never found?
