    Have only sniffed it on a card but liked it: pure, simple iris with citrus, very classy.

    TGIF!! LIB: Yes, I've sprayed on the Prada about a week ago and it was rather enjoyable. I liked that it was very subtle & sort of 'older' smelling for a new release. Quite soapy too.

    Grey Flannel for me today.

    The glorious leather and amber of Tabac Blond extrait.

    I liked it but now I seem to have developped a severe crush on it.
    Oh well, crushes....... Tabac Blond will have to prove itself worthy of a long-term adoration.

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Testing Bois 1920 - Sushi Imperiale. I LOVED it on first wearing. Not liking it so much on the 2nd. Finding it a bit too masculine this time around - more citrus and woods, less spices. Still an interesting journey of a scent....

    Yes I skintested it yesterday. Too light and subtle for me, after 30 minutes it was gone!

    Feminité du Bois, this is going to be one of my HG I guess. tested it many years ago and found it soo masculine, my taste has changed (for the better) I hope...

    Celebrating by testing out Creed Jasmin Impératrice Eugénie from a sample. My skin often wreaks havoc with jasmine, but this one is really lovely!

    Taolady, have a wonderful time at the wedding, and everyone else have a wonderful time wherever you are!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Sampling Fragonard Capucine. Soft, mellow, but also soapy in a slightly gagging way. Reviews talk about its old-fashioned powder quality. It certainly is that.
    Official notes: Green tea, bergamot, rose, jasmine, musk, winter woods. Musk, yes, maybe some rose--but where are the rest of the notes?

    Anyone want my sample?

    I've bailed on the Fragonard, Zibeline. Too baby-girlie for me.
    Scrubbed and sprayed Black Vetyver Cafe. Ah! That fits me like an old pair of shoes.

    Tigs, G and kanutta, thanks for your impressions. After a whole day in Infusion d'Iris, It has been upgraded from "like" to "love". It felt wonderfully pure and classy - like tigs said - and melted perfectly with my skin.
    G, luckily I missed the "older" and soapy part
    Yes, kanutta, a neg point is that it's an EdP but behaves like an EdT. I had to apply it again at 2 pm, but I enjoyed the whole development again :bounce:
