SOTD: Allure Sensuelle pure parfum





The lovely sunny spring weather has turned to rainy spring weather. Going through my scent wardrobe I was tempted to bring out my heavy oriental hitters: Organza Indecence, Must, or Un Bois Vanille. But the reality is I simply have come to that time of the year that even when it is cold outside spring is still very visibly here and no autumnal/winter scents are what I want to wear. So instead I am going with Allure Sensualle pure parfum (the only strength of Allure Sensualle I wear), which is very much a floriental scent yet the patchouli used in it has a cool earthy quality to it that makes it appropiate for spring weather. I almost dismissed this image as being to much in the mode of bodice-ripper, but I love the fact that the model is short haired, that is she not the "ideal" of beauty, but she has contemplative alluring quality on her face that well the more I look at the image the more I am drawn to it.


And a quote:

The only reason I made a commercial for American Express was to pay for my American Express bill.-- Peter Ustinov


In these days of craptastic economy I thought this one was highly fitting and appropiate.

Wasn't Ustinov really witty!
Enjoy the Allure Sensuelle parfum. And may spring be quick to show her face :-)

Very witty. I don't mind the rain, we need it here in California, besides it is also a facet of spring.
