The previous night we had stayed in a stuffy, foul smelling hotel in Bandung, where you could practically see the fungal spores floating in the air. So lungeing and moist, we should really have gone somewhere else, but it was too late and we just decided that we had to put up with it. This was then followed by a blistering row on the streets, where we practically came to blows down one of its back-alleys; a bad night’s sleep; vile breakfast, and tense, infuriated silence.

We were soon on the train to Yogyakarta, though, a seven hour journey that passed like a dream, and let our souls ease back into a gently relaxed pace again as Javan scapes bled slowly past in a light green blur of elegantly shaped mountains, paddy fields, and the self-contained, feline…

    Wow! What a wonderful list and read. I’ll have to come back to take it in bites, though I couldn’t resist rushing through the first time to take in as much as possible. I’m greedy and want it all *now*. It’s timely for me, too, as I’ve had jasmine on my mind. Today I’m wearing Molinard Jasmin, simple and pure and pretty. I think Floris Night Blooming Jasmine would be for me – I’m always up for an English idyll. And thank you for the warning about AG Le Jasmin. I loathe ginger in perfume. So many more to explore. 🙂

    • Molinard: love that house for inexpensive, but perfectly rendered simplicity. I would love to try that one actually.

      • Lilybelle

        I think you would like it. Simple and unadulterated – to my nose. And not heavily indolic. I can’t handle the thickly indolic scents (like Narcisse Noir). They make me feel queasy. I wish they didn’t. I love orange blossom and jasmine and white florals. I just need some air with them, a breeze. Molinard’s Jasmin is breezy enough for me.

      • I am the breezy type as well, which is why I have considered the Il Profumo Vent De Jasmin. It has that rush of air in it that lets the jasmine float.

  2. Yippee,I have two on your wonderful list! Samsara and etat libre d’ orange..
