    Re: Do You Remember Your Wedding Fragrance?

    Re: Women for L'Artisan Traversee du Bosphore!

    Love it and wear it. Unisex as far as I'm concerned, although like rubegon I would put it more on the feminine side. I get the iris, leather and a bit of fruity rose, but no tobacco. Doesn't bother...

    Re: Synchronized Fridays 2012

    Giving the synch a miss today. This theme requires a bit of thought and all my brain power is being used up elsewhere today! I'm interested to see what others come up with though.
