This morning I’m having one of “those” (clear-liquid diet prep) medical procedures done, my first ever, so today’s post will be shorter and sweeter than usual.
I know, TMI (too much information) this A.M., but there you have it. It’s one of those necessary evils of life, but ultimately for your own good. Many of you have been there (or will be one day). So let’s move on to a far more pleasant subject, shall we?
What is your favorite chypre? Or perhaps you have several.
One of my top scents (albeit tagged a “modern chypre”) has got to be Roja Dove’s Unspoken. I only have a decant of the EDP but would love to get my hands on a dab o’ the pure parfum one day just to try it. If this should entail a trip across the pond to London and the Haute Parfumerie in Harrod’s one day, well, so much the better.
Other favorites of mine include Liz Zorn’s Centennial (hugs to Musette for turning us on to this one); Roja Dove again with Diaghilev, elusive beauty that it is (they should have made vats of the EDP — VATS, I say! Now all I see on the RD site is the uber-pricey parfum). Also, Andy Tauer’s Une Rose Chypree; MDCI’s Chypre Palatin; and the original Chanel Cristalle.
Alas, I cannot wear several of the classic, big-gun scents such as Guerlain’s Mitsouko, Robert Piguet’s Bandit and Gres’ Cabochard. I’m happy for you fortunate souls out there with whom Mitsy and Bandit play nicely. But that’s OK. Not everyone can wear and love everything, right?
Anyway, I would love for you to share what chypres make you happy.
I’m thinking a nice one on each wrist will help get me over the most aggravating hours of this partially lost weekend.
And please forgive me if I’m not up to commenting later today. Of course, I will if I can, as I do love chatting with all you wonderful Posse folks.
Thanks, everyone, and have a great Monday!
