I have been to those greenhouses (many summers ago)...fascinating garden. I still remember smelling a field of lavender, blowing downstream towards us when we were walking around this place. We saw varieties of plants we've never ever seen in South Florida. Ray, the gardener in the house, was taking pictures all afternoon. Nice memories...
carolina girl - nice to see you posting again.
Tonight, I'm joining ExtremeK in the house of Slumberhouse in the deep, thick, syrupy:Sova
The last drops from my sample. This scent conjures up little pieces of Eau Noire
by Christian Dior, Sables
by Annick Goutal and a little bit of that just-opened-the-outdoor-shed-door
accord prominently featured in Greenbriar 1968
by CB I Hate Perfume - I'm pretty sure it's the hay that makes this one so magical and nostalgically evocative. When I spray it on I feel like I'm in someone else's house, somewhere comfortable...lived in, where you don't mind tracking dirt in or putting your feet up on the coffee table.
Perusing the Slumberhouse website, it seems this scent is priced slightly higher than the others (my luck). Maybe it's because of it's strength - it wears like an extrait.
