Hi everyone, and thanks for all the best wishes and cupcakes! I'm sure there's enough for everyone here...
I'm using my birthday as an excuse to haul out my little only-enough-for-one-wearing sample of the famously strange and quite collected Le Feu D'Issey
by Issey Miyake
Honestly, after a week of Afteliers, this really isn't that strange at all. It's actually quite similar to Aftelier's Cognac, but everything that Le Feu does (with the exception of the coconut water accord), Cognac did "bigger." I'm glad to have tried it, but I'm (thankfully) not completely in love.
Actually, I'm doing pretty much nothing tonight, with my big birthday plans happening tomorrow (it's easier to get everyone together on a Friday), so I may try something else fun...
Good night all, and thanks!
ps. Tomorrow is the birthday of Basenotes institution and all-around great guy JaimeB. It's a good week for birthdays!
