    Does it remind you of Christmas fruit and spice cake, my dear? It is a spice feast indeed, and the notes reflect its undeniable richness: cedar, sandalwood resin, candied mandarin peel, dried fig, dates, nutmeg, cumin, clove, Ceylon cardamom, bay leaf, balsamic resins, Tonka bean, Siamese benzoin, myrrh, cistus labdanum, light tobacco note (taken from the site of Serge-expert Bela).

    Good Morning everybody,

    I planned on resting up this weekend but got dragged into DH's home improvement schemes instead. I ache all over. My original scent plan called for something bright and energizing to perk up the loathed Monday at work, but I can't even pretend. I need comfort and calm (and ibuprofen), so I am going for Black Cashmere, both the frag and the sweater (and the ibuprofen).

    Jillsy, I hope you had a fantastic time. I'd wave, but the med hasn't kicked in yet.

    Glad everyone is safe (scary about the car sliding downhill).
    Hope all are recuperating (maybe lievje's sleeping in?),
    and that Monday doldrums will be the worst to befall any of us.

    Happy Kyra's enjoyed another trip around the sun
    and am ecstatic for Jillsy's anniversary!

    Off to bed in a generous sample from KBE ....this interesting frag is slow to develop - it's iris and lavender with a hint of leather that's quite prominent in the dry down. I might need more of this.......

    I'm testing Parfum D'Empire - Equistrius tonight

    This showcases the chilly side of iris ... it seems light and airy, not as powdery as some iris scents ... it seems to really be taking me on a ride, the notes are weaving and changing all the time ...

    Notes: orris, violet, rice powder, chocolate, ambrette, sandalwood, vetiver, and grey amber

    Nahema EDP as I was tracking a bottle on ebay, but decided not to up my bid.
    It's a beautiful 'fume but I am fine with just a decant to turn to when I feel in need of roses.

    Been watching my DVD of The Libertine with Johnny Depp and crying my eyes out. So beautiful, so sad. Such a deep draught of life drunk. I like Rochester; I have known a man with that charisma and heartbeaking, life-enhancing hedonistic streak. And I love the music at the end - the contralto singing. I don't know what it is, but it's sad and lovely at the same time.

    Went with Bandit today. My first time. Is this really so controversial? To my it smelled like a well-behaved green chypre, with a good bit of tame, white musk. Nice, I could see making it my office scent. Am I nuts? Is my nose drunk?

    Now I am sampling Ginestet Botrytis which is scrumptious but short-lived (yet oh-so-worth-it) and Frapin 1270, also very good.
    Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

    SotE - Also Ginestet Botrytis. Tried this out on the Bowling Boys last night.

    It seems to last longer on me than on you Pellen. I kept getting random whiffs of this lovely sugared scent, kept looking around and realized it was me. I LOVED that!

    Bowling Boys reaction - well, the usual stuff. Much harassment and general merrymaking all around. All unusual behavior seemed to be fueled by the pitchers of beer. No comment on the scent.
