Chanel no 5
"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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

I'll second javagreen, it is John Varvatos (2004) for me today as well.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

Trying out a sample vial of Parfumerie Generale's Cuir d'Iris, courtesy of a very generous BNer (although I can't seem to find "Cuir d'Iris" listed anywhere, so it just might be Cuir Venenum), with a few drops of BPAL's Love and Pain (notes: Lavender, Balkan tobacco, black musk, dark vanilla, and golden copaifera) on the back of one hand.
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 Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

Acqua Viva by Profumum - possibly the worlds strongest lemon fragrance I've ever worn. Just this shy of reminding me of Lemon Joy dishwashing liquid - it is so tenacious... I'm in awe of it.
