It’s a cold, dark, rainy day. The cat is curled up on the slanket, and refuses to get out of bed. Last night I applied Sonoma Scent Studio’s Incense Pure in preparation for today’s “SSS” installation; while it’s still clinging to the place of application (think KP’s prison tattoo’s), I am not in the mood for it. IP is smooth, meditative, and very well done. If you like Balsamo della Mecca, then you will also like Incense Pure. While I fully intend to come back to this worthy fragrance, I need something a tad less languid if I’m going to make it in to work on time to meet with my apparel sales rep.
Incense Pure Notes: “frankincense CO2, myrrh EO, labdanum absolute, cistus oil, natural oakmoss absolute, aged Indian patchouli heartnote fraction, sandalwood, cedar, ambergris, orris, angelica root absolute, elemi EO, vanilla absolute.”
What will I grab to add that extra bounce to my step and beat back the doldrums? Why, Nuit de Tubéreuse, of course! More on NdT later, perhaps.
