Colleague going to Iran for the summer holidays; she's going to bring me back some Galbanum essence (the real stuff). Can't wait to stink so good with the premium shit.

is it possible to bring in seeds/plants from abroad ? i guess it depends where you're located but i thought there were issues with this , same as with produce...could be wrong though. not that it ever stopped me from bringing kilos of saffron devil.gif

That would be awesome.

Can't wait to see the new Time and Newsweek headlines: "Galbanum, The New Kudzu?"

Hmm, prices of Heeley went up in the last weeks from 98€ to 120€, what a shame.


I've got a coupon for Aus Liebe zum Duft and have to decide between Dzing! and Méchant Loup. Whats your opinion on these two?

In my opinion, there's no comparison between the two and I would overwhelmingly choose Dzing!.

Agreed, with a caveat: if its very hot outside I would not recommend choosing Dzing.

+1 on Dzing!. Don't know Méchant Loup but Dzing! is great enough to justify a full bottle.

I've sometimes been asked, "Hey, what did you get in the mail today?" Well if someone asked me that today (they haven't), I would respond by saying "A bottle of Guerlain Parure." It's just a mini, but I got it for a ridiculous price and I'm happy to have it!

Pre-shower: Givenchy III vintage.
SOTD: Invasion Barbare. Every once in a while I like to revisit scents that other perfumistas rave about, but that for whatever reason I'm not that excited about. We'll see how it goes.

^Love III. Good stuff.

As for the galbanum, it's the oil/essence, not the plants or seeds. I'm not looking to grow the stuff (not that it ever could in Japan's extremely wet/humid climate)

Last bit of no. 19 to throw away the bottle!

I'm not even a little bit surprised!

Today: Diptyque 34 Boulevard St. Germain Have many of you guys tried this. It's one of the most complex perfumes from Diptyque and one I find to be warm and comforting.

That describes my feelings about it almost exactly. There are a thousand things going on, but somehow it doesn't feel chaotic at all.

Sepia opens very animalic. Not in a pleasant way. But the animalic notes calmed down and blended into a rich and warm scent. I like it!
AdP is great for hot summer day (oh summer, where art thou). Not sure whether I prefer it over the intensa -- they're both great Mediterranean colognes.

Seconded. But, having said that, because it doesn't really jump out at me in any way, I never sought it out.
