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
