Swooning for my SOTD

swoonSomething in the air today is off, it feels like spring.  Texas weather, as so many of my readers and Aimee at MossyLoomings knows is unpredictable.  Here we are in Novemer, a few days are frigid, today is going up to the high 70’s and something smells spring-like in the air.  I have a deep craving for Neil Morris’ Swoon. 

reminder of the notes:

Top: Orange, Fruit Note
Heart: Tomato Leaf, Philodendron, Dossinia, Jasmine Sambac, Peony, Honeysuckle, Narcissus, Black Tea
Base: Oakmoss, Agarwood, Civette, Musk, Patchouli

Looking back on the orginal post, I sampled this in spring, maybe this is the reason for the craving.  In whatever case, I bought a new sample size of it after my old one mysteriously disappeared.  The juice is darker in color, the orange topnote more pronounced, but the heart is just as interesting.  My nose feels as though it is on mute today, as everything smells a bit more subtle, but I am still loving this one for it’s innocent naughtiness. 

Soon I’ll be posting on something new — just waiting for the nose to go back on full blast and the preggers comfort smell cravings to go away. 

What are you folks wearing today?

Oh– and while decanting some Fredric Malles for Carol, I was re-stunned by Carnal Flower yesterday.  If you find Fracas too hot pink, give it a sniff.  It’s incredibly sexy

  1. Totally agree with Carnal Flower! Narcotic and sexy. And WHY is it that Fracas is hot pink? So weird, that’s the color I think of, too.

    The Swoon sounds intriguing, with the tomato leaf and the jasmine and the tea and the civet… whoof! Do you get any identifiable fruitiness, because that would probably turn me off. But if the fruit is unidentifiable juiciness, that’s something I can get with! Also, orange is an exception in my fruit-aversion. Case in point: I love Theorema.

    Hope you’re feeling well!

  2. Aimee,
    I think I get hot pink because it reminds me of someone’s very va-va-voom auntie who wears the hot pink ruffled blouse from Bridget Jones’ tart and vicar party. Fracas is flamboyant and I have to be in a very particular mood to wear it. I use the vintage extrait circa 1950 or so, which has become a nice syrup 😉
    Swoon isn’t tooo fruity. It’s a perfume that has a texture, the fruit sort of underscores the sweetness of the flowers to give it a little rub.
    Thanks for droppin’ in !
