, prayers going out to your mom and husband ((((hugs)))). Hope things get better sweetie.
Sarrasins swipe on the wrists via cotton ball sample, (thanks Jujy!). Reminds me of Lust by Lush except less potent and a bit more woody. Warm jasmine, a little balminess. I barely, barely, barely get any carnation, I was hoping for more carnation, as I love that flower! It's a good jasmine but I don't think I would pay that much for a bell jar personally. When I can get a cheaper jasmine that will do. The purple juice is cool though!
I personally like Ineke, Twolf, I can say she likes none of the A-H sampler set(I think?) but does like some of the Floral Curiosities. I like Briar Rose like she does and own it. It's a nice, berried rose with patch. I like it better than Portrait of a Lady by Malle, just cause, my tastes just go that way. I think Twolf and I were both looking for a berried rose and we found one
. My fave from Ineke is An Evening Edged In Gold, which, I really need to get sometime! I also liked Field Notes, that tobacco. But more wears and it reminds me of dryer sheets+tabacco and can't seem to get over the dryer sheet aspect. It's pretty alright though, best in colder weather. After My Own Heart is a nice lilac. I still have to try a few from the Curiosities line though. Sweet William was a bust for me though, lol. Ineke, I believe, is coming out with a sampler set containing those 1.5 ml spray vials, of the Floral Curiosities line. So, it's going to be like the A-H set but just the FC line. I think it's going to come out spring or summer, can't remember.
