    Dear Lievje and Lady in Black --

    THANK YOU for helping me find Cuir d'Iris!!! I really enjoy the quick leather start with sharp, clear green iris notes, that somehow manages to dry down to the faintest suede, pale floral and benzoin.

    Now I just have to figure out whether a) they ship Stateside; and b) I can live on my sample until I win the lottery.

    PS: LIB, I *want* your shoes!!!! Allergic to kitties, I'm afraid, although I love them.

    ComDiva, here's Pierre Guillaume's description of his Cuir d'Iris:
    "An ancient and rare leather, powdered with sumptuous black iris, and flavoured with grapes and dark chocolate. Notes: Cardamom, bergamot, black iris, leather, tannin and Rizophora wood." Thanks to my perfume mentor, Gerald

    You kids are so entertaining today. Love you all.

    Mail brought Etro Lemon Sorbet from Mike and Carriere from Chardkay so I'm smelling lemony fresh. Dang menopausal heat has me seeking out the freshest scents. Hope this phase doesn't last much longer.

    I wanted a "patchouli rose" today, but don't have one so I layered Poussiere de Rose over Montale's Patchouli Leaves. It's not exactly what I had in mind, but it's alright. I think a brighter, fresher rose might have worked better.
    LiB - Great shoes!

    something came over me tonight - must have been inspired by those shoes! - and now I find myself in FRACAS for the first time ever!

    I steered clear of this in stores, Fracas and paperstrips do not a beauty make -
    but tonight I dabbed a bit on my wrist, a vial that one of you loverly folks sent to me,
    and WOW!

    I had to smile. It's so wild and naughty, but pretty and flowery at the same time.
    This wild thing has more in common with Bandit than meets the eye.
    I can see here that less is more, it packs a potent punch this beauty, and I think the cold weather suits it best for me at least.

    Plus, I have Tiptoeing through Chambers of the Moon on my other wrist, which is a soft powdery sweet transparent little pretty.

    I bought my daughter With Love from Hilary Duff last night, and it is a lovely frag and makes one feel girly, hence my little encounters of the evening, as above.
    "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
