    Good morning, sweethearts! Today it's Parfumerie Générale Haramens for me.
    Note for ComDiva: a Cuir D'Iris does indeed exist in the PG line (have a decant myself) and it is totally different from Cuir Venenum! So your sample is marked correctly.

    Yesterday my job interview went very well, thanks also to the enourmous wave of good vibes sent by all of you , fuelled by wishes, good luck dances and mantra chanting! :wave:

    The position was meant for me and I was meant for that job and everybody was enthusiastic but.....I would have had to relocate to another town. Eh. So I was the one to say no thank you.

    The positive side is that other chances came up suddenly, so I will have a quite busy job evaluating time ahead of me .

    Riding high on an ego boost I also bought myself a beautiful pair of shoes...high-heeled, black suede pumps edged in pearly--metallic caramel leather with a gorgeous tied ribbon motif

    I have no idea what to wear today. But I'm going shopping in Royal Tunbridge Wells, so maybe I will go perfume-less and sample when I'm there...

    Glad it went so well LIB. And its nice sometimes to be able to turn things down. Very good for the self-esteem.

    Today I'm trying Blue Agave and Cacao. Surprised by the power of the cocoa at first - didn't expect it to really smell like chocolate. (Yes, I know! Doh!) After that I had to have pain au chocolat for breakfast. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

    Hello, I miss you all. My Eczema is much better now, though the area near my neck is still a little dry.

    Anyways, I was away in Macau for 3 days for my work offsite meeting. I had a lot of presentations and bits and pieces to prepare before I went. Thankfully, the whole meeting went smoothly and everyone at work had a very good time (We went hiking and did a few bonding exercises together) and enjoyed each other's company. I bought a few samples and decants to wear when I was away, namely: Miller Harris Tangerine Vert. Kenzo Summer, Bond No. 9 Eau de Noho. I have also visited the new Venetian in Macau and managed to loose a bit of money... anyways...

    I would love to see LIB in heels. May I?

    Those shoes sound amazing! That is the perfect way to top off a great day as far as I am concerned. Congratulations on the new opportunities and the shoes

    Hope you feel better, Coco! Glad to hear that you feel good, Lady_in_Black.

    While walking our doggie still in the dark, I ran into a spider web and caught it with my hair and face. If it the same spider that lived there last year, it grows to be 4 cm in diameter and has a scary looking pale yellow H on its back. I am happy I did not bring it inside!

    Va Va Voooom! And you sure live in the right town for shoe-buying - of COURSE you wouldn't want to leave!! Rock on, Baby!!

    With my Ambre Russe, Luckyscent sent huge samples of other PdeE's - notably Equistrius "Orris, violet, rice powder, chocolate, ambrette, sandalwood, vetiver, grey amber" but I swear it comes off like chocolate leather and cigars! Just GAWJUSS. Keeps changing. Wish I could send samples to every one of you. Goes great with my Lapsang Souchong and breakfast of beans and cheese. (Are you listening WordBird?!!)

Tomorrow the whole project - which they have been creating 24/7 since Tuesday - will be swept up and tossed into the winds over the ocean. It all just fits together!!

    I'm inspired and will be slutty too today and join rtamara in Chanel 22. Will we have all the Chanel numbers covered off today?

    Big hairy spiders? Yuck! Although one that size will do wonders to control all the other insects buzzing around.

    My son has a huge centipede living with him in his lower level apartment. He purposely keeps it around (ie, does not kill it), to control all the other insects. It works! There's nothing else but the centipede down there. I've learned to step around his little friend.

    Thanks for the clarification, LIB! Good to know, since I *really* liked the Cuir d'Iris (especially on drydown) and was questioning my nose because I wasn't getting the notes described in the rather unenthusiastic reviews to Cuir Venenum here. Happy to learn that the two scents are not the same!

    Question: Does anyone know if Cuir d'Iris is available only in Europe? Priced the same as the other PGs? I couldn't even find it on the official PG web site.
    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

    Bulgari Black today - I want to bathe in the stuff, though I practically have already because it has absolutely no lasting power on me. I hope it's just because it's so cold today, I'd buy a big bottle if I didn't have to reapply every half hour!

    ComDiva, it's on the website: 1.7 oz is no. 327, and it's 95 Euro; 3.4 oz is no. 328, that's 145 Euro. You can search with the number, and then order.

    Exactly, lievje! There are some scents that are so mysterious they haven't even been reviewed by the usual perfume bloggers, except for moonfish - but in Russian language Cuir d'Iris, my beloved Haramens and Marilyn and John among them.
