Peace, love and patchouli. Okay, it is a crazy mantra, but it works. Give yourself a PLAP on the back early in the morning and things won't seem so bad later in the day when crappy stuff happens.

I've written about patchouli before and most of you who read this blog know that I adore the stuff. There have been times, however, when I didn't. I'm much more discerning these days about patchouli choices. I have favorites and they're in the organ listed as such -- Grade A, B, C, D, and so forth, my own classification method which has little bearing on how the rest of the world may perceive these individual patchoulis. I'm always delighted when I find a sweet, floral patchouli -- I have to admit, those are my favorites. But I am partial to the sooty variety as well.

Perfumes in The Scented Djinn arsenal which highlight or simply have patchouli in their composition are:

Khamsa Eau Fraiche ~ special order scent, available in 50 and 100 ml spray bottles

Serj ~ at ~ available in 1ml sample bottles, 5 ml perfume bottles, and 9 ml flacons

Ghusun ~ at ~ available in 1 ml sample bottles and 5 ml perfume bottles

Kush Bakhur ~ at ~ available in 1 ml samples bottles and 5 ml perfume bottles

For more fabulous patchouli perfume choices, be sure to follow the Summer of Patchouli Love scent event at Perfume Pharmer.

    The blog's looking really pretty and airy with the delicate Art Nouveau-feel artwork. Lovely.

    Have a happy May Day,

  2. Funny Interesting AND Cool! PLAP! Justine, give yourself a PLAP at the end of the day too! You made it!XOXOXO ~ Monica

  3. Oh, May Day! I almost forgot! That was one of my favorite 'holidays' in grammar school (they don't allow it in schools anymore). We'd choose a May Queen and wrap ribbons around the tether ball poles and party all day long . . . *sigh*

    I've shaken off the dark, I think, that's why the lightness on the blog. It suits. I'm happy you like it :)


  4. And a PLAP! back at'cha Ane!
