    Hi Foustie. HP is lovely. Took me a while to appreciate it, but I'm glad I stuck with it, and now of course I wouldn't be without it. My husband likes it too, largely because the smell reminds him of play-doh. Can't say I smell the connection, but if he's happy I'm not complaining! Take care x.

    Thanks Foustie - that's so nice of you to offer! But to be honest, I'm really not in an acquisition phase at the moment, lol! I mean, I've been overwhelmed by this little "hobby" lately (this occasionally happens) so I'm trying hard to divest, and enjoying what I have. But regarding Esvedra and the Laboratorio Olfattivo line, I was just quite intrigued (this still happens, too!) by something I was completely unfamiliar with, and they do sound interesting...if not quite the edps they claim to be!

    And thank you for the comment about my collection, too - it's not the rarest or the edgiest, but I've been collecting since I was a child and they all give me such great pleasure!

    It's good to have you here Foustie - your posts are sweet and sincere and I always enjoy reading them!

    Thanks Foutie, regarding the Hiris review. I meant what I said, in that it was a gateway fragrance for me and the iris note. I've not looked back since. But as I explore the note, I always come back to Hiris, even though I have found, for me, the perfect iris - FM Iris Poudre. Hiris is close, comfortable, and will forever be personal for me. Each time I wear it, it justifies itself, and my love of the iris note, just perfectly.

    What are your thoughts on Hiris?

    Thanks very much. They seem pretty upbeat and damage looks only to be superficial so plenty to be optimistic about. They should still be cleared up and ready for Xmas Day. Us Yorkshire folk are hardy souls

    Enjoy your Xmas !

    I need to get back to them now that my sinus infection is hopefully on the run. So far the only "must have" for me has been Ambre Russe, but I'm deliberately waiting on Cuir Ottoman as I have high hopes for that one!

Leather/Iris

by Foustie on 19th October 2011 at 02:33 PM
Okey Dokey. For everyone who asked me to report back, here we are. For everyone who is not interested in this thread, well I would move swiftly on if I were you.

First, a caveat, I am just a keen novice and these are only my views....

..and Sari, I hope that you are here. I have something to tell you!!

WHY THIS QUEST?
Well, I like Iris, and I like Leather, and I was thinking about Iris and Leather together. It seems to me that there is something

Shalimar Perfume Initial

by Foustie on 21st August 2011 at 02:50 PM
I may need to run for cover.

This would have been better posted as a review but Shalimar Perfume Initial has not been listed yet (or I can't find it), and I just can't hold my wheesht.

In my opinion Shalimar Perfume Initial is a very carefully thought out new interpretation of Shalimar which has been made with respect to the original Shalimar and to Guerlain generally. There I have said it.

I think that we sometimes have to remind ourselves that new

The Intriguing case of the......

An Intriguing case for the delectation of Basenotes..............

In the 1970's little schoolchildren all over Europe were encouraged to choose penpals from a list of other little schoolchildren, the objective being that they would learn something about each other. I chose Helmut, a boy from Germany, whom I hope is happy and living well, but my story does not concern him. I also chose a girl from France. Her name was Francoise. Francoise Lelong.

In her first letter
