Hello newcomer!

Since this post is not being promoted yet, why don't you leave me some info about yourself in the comments section/ Be sure to tell me how you found me.

Today is a "Bois de Nuit" day. This is the working title of a small aromatic sketch devoted to Frog Princes. This version contains: Notes of earth and water, delicate and fleeting florals topped with Violet Leaf Absolute, Tunisian Neroli and Melissa . The base is a chorus of warm vanillas and tree moss. It is vegetal and tart

Today I will create a second version of a perfume working up a sweeter yet woodsy quality.

These verdant potions are created as a prize for the contest over at my friend Lee's podsite. Lee is an amazing jeweler who uses sterling silver with beautiful semi-precious stones. If you love detail and elegance with a deep magical source as inspiration..check it out.

hi gail, i was wondering if you could come up with a scent for datura? the actual wild growing one. since discovering this scent after having some plants growing around where i live, i am totally crazy about it. the scent is intoxicating to me.

Hello Susan,

Your post is intrieguing. Particularly since I have never had the good fortune to actually experience the scent of Datura.

I have alot of ideas thanks to this comment. I will post later.

thank you for visiting! Gail

It will be intoxicating, the scent of datura tatula is well know to be narcotic. Look it up in Mrs Grieve's complete herbal.
