    I'm jumping the gun here (still Tuesday in my zone), but I wanted to thank you all for the birthday greetings. I've been wearing Divines and failing to shrink my test bins.

    Cozy snuggly thoughts, especially to the bunch with the grippe. And love, strength and prayers to Lievje and Erm.

    Ah, the agony of waiting, but.....here she comes, finally....

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille

    Ah, uhm, yes....opening the bottle and a blast of boozy notes wafts out
    Is that just me or does anyone else get this as well?

    And then....well...vanilla I am afraid that my nose is not finely tuned enough yet to discover other notes.
    Oh well, I got the 'Spiritueuse' and the 'Vanille'. Will wait patiently for the rest to emerge.

    It's a bit warmer than seasonally appropriate today, so I am wearing L'Aromarine Mousse de Chene.
    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

    The geraniums are blooming on the porch railings and the leftover birds are singing their little heads off. Welcome sweet Springtime when it should be scarf and mitten weather. Reached reflexively for the divine La Rose Jacqueminot (thanks to the divine Zibs I snagged a fresh bottle off EBay - the previous one [at five times the price] was/is a little off)....having a Christmas lunch with one of my oldest dearest friends (just like La Rose!).....

    Wide variety of fragrance out there today.
    After wearing the powdery, confectionary comfort of Guet Apens yesterday, I felt like exploring the iris note more today.
    Dipping into Quarry Joy's Bag O' Toys, I come up with two iris scents: Editions de Frederic Malle Iris Poudre and Yves Rocher Iris Noir.
    Initially, I like the Iris Noir better because of the fruity rose and patchouli (always an attractive combination for me.) These notes hint at YL Rose Absolu, one of my favorites, but Iris Noir veers away from the sweetness of that one and moves along the border of the more austere iris. It still is sweet and floral for an iris, though.
    Over time, I believe the Iris Poudre will wear better. It is has more of the powdery rootiness that I have come to associate with the iris, still sweet, but more classic, more straightforward.
    Have a good day, everyone, and thanks, Quarry.

    Ah, good to hear! I was almost afraid that all those whisky/brandy potions-against-flu had affected my perception.
    Hmm, maybe that is why I could smell the SDV now.....::booz ::
