To A Wild Rose

2015-03-03 09.42.57 (3)

To A Wild Rose by Avon (Avon 1950) is a chypre floral in the same vein as the original Miss Dior (released just three years before To A Wild Rose), with super clear green notes.  I believe I detect galbanum, labdanum, oakmoss, citrus, cedar, civet, patchouli and rose although I’m sure there are many other notes too.

To A Wild Rose is paradoxically airy yet heavy with a very strong emphasis on the rose.  Actually, To A Wild Rose is a perfect name for this cologne.  It’s wild and Earthy but with a heart of beautiful roses.  According to one review on the perfume website Basenotes, Avon originally described To A Wild Rose as a “mossy rose” scent.  It is a lovely, mossy rose indeed.

And, frankly, I’m running out of things to say about my chosen book of the month…  A Pocket Book of Great Operas is in fact a pocket guide to many operas.  I wish I had something more insightful and clever to say about it but I don’t.  I do not. Sorry. I’m sure I should and could if I forced myself, but alas, I don’t want to.  Sigh.  I think I need another book?  I’ll work on that for next Wednesday.  And again, I’m sorry this part of my blog has fallen flat this time…

Sigh.  🙂

Anyway, have a pleasant rest of your week.
