Happy 1 Star Friday! Our community project for today: wear your favorite perfume ranked only one star by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez in Perfumes: the Guide or in Luca Turin's Style Arabia columns. Partial credit for a two-star perfume!
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
I'm wearing Serge Lutens Miel de Bois. Tania Sanchez: "smells like a New York sidewalk in July", and yes, it does smell like that, especially in the early stages. I wouldn't recommend it to any but the craziest of perfumistas.
Reminder: on 2/12 we're doing 5 Star Friday: wear your favorite perfume ranked 5 stars by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez in Perfumes: the Guide (if you don't own the book, you can find a compiled list at Basenotes) or in Luca Turin's Style Arabia columns. Partial credit for a four-star perfume! And if anyone knows where other lists can be found online, do comment. (suggested by Bastet) Update: you can download the index to the 2008 Hardcover version of Perfumes: the Guide here (thanks kpaint!)
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2016, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
