Beauty Notes: perfumes part 7

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 10:33 PM (Eastern)

(see part 6)

I'm still sort of waiting for the Moment of Truth to arrive, and tell me which of the (many) samples I've tried is to be my next bottle of perfume.

It's not as easy as it sounds (and mind you, I'm not complaining). It's just a different experience from perfume-shopping of yore. Before, I would go to Nordstrom or what you have, try on various scents...I liked so few of them, the "full bottle choice" was always pretty obvious.

The past few times I went to San Francisco, I reached for my Diptyque Do Son or Eau de Lierre. In fact I finished my Do Son sample today; the first Diptyque sample to go. Is it a sign? My Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien was the first Annick Goutal sample to go.

I've yet to use up an Etro sample (to be fair, I own Heliotrope, which negates using up the Heliotrope sample).

Oh well. If I miss Do Son all that much, that might well be it.

There used to be several copies of this video on youtube, then they all got pulled and this official copy now resides there alone. One of my all-time favorite music videos. It was odd seeing it after not having seen it for what, twenty years?

Donald Fagen - New Frontier

Not particularly relevant to this post, unless you count the "Ambush" reference :D

Nice video, says a lot without saying too much. Culture these days, we want to disclose everything. It'd be nice to retain a sense of privacy...

I felt funny watching it, it reminded me of this tv movie I saw long ago, with Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay. Oh here it is: A Rather English Marriage

Both of them try to capture a time and place, that haven't existed for years, that will never exist again, that would otherwise simply have been forgotten.

We almost bought a house that had a bomb shelter. lol It was the first one I'd ever seen in person. Really weird...thick, bank-vault style doors, a posted list of supplies, a place where the canned goods would have gone...

Aaahhh, Donald Fagen is great! I heard him live in Stockholm (with JennyB!) this summer. I've been a fan for nearly twenty years now.

That would be fabulous, to see Donald Fagen in concert. I'm seriously jealous. :)
