    Iris noir from Yves Rocher.....not so good as the rose and the amber from their prestige line, it has an alcalic smell to it. Almost like lye...well I bought it unsniffed so can't really complain.

    I am catching a cold, so I will probably go for a cheerful and rubbery tuberose to cut through the gloom.

    Maybe Miller Harris Noix de Tuberéuse.

    First time I tried my decant I thought it smelled like popcorn butter, but today that's just what I'm craving.

    Edit:
    Oh Lievje, I hope it all goes well. I will keep him in my thoughts.

    Hello!

    Continuing story of youngest son (who is 11, by the way): the second antibiotics don't help him enough and he has to stop now, because he's allergic to them. The fever is still sky-high and this aftenoon, they'll make an x-ray and take blood for further investigation.

    You guys hang on there, both lievje and Erm. What has it been, second week? They GOTTA do something about it, they just have to!

    Some of you may know I got transferred to another store within the same company and I feel rather good about my decision, at least it is not a late shift every night, some weekends off and a different boss!

    Flower by Kenzo (thanks to a nice BNer) is my SotD today.

    Lievje, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your son. May he get well and be playing soon.

    I'll be wearing JoJo by Liz Zorn today. An interesting "stinky" floral. Just enough stink to make it unique!

    JOJO
    parfume extraitJOJO the perfume pays homage to silver screen sirens and the unapologetic nature of a shameless turn of the century floral. Classic in design with a bold citrus opening that folds into a soft earthy floral heart, enhanced by the addition of a roasted coffee note set to a dry, yet woody chypre base.Notes: Bergamot, Key Lime, blood Orange, Boronia, Neroli, Ylang Extra, Cassie, jasmine Absolute, Pimento Berry, Rose Absolute, Linden Flower, Mimosa Absolute, Rosewood, Atlas Cedar, labdanum, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Cabreuva

    Lievje: I have hope that your son is in good care and will recover as quickly as possible. Even my father, at age 65, recovered from pneumonia. His spinal tap turned out negative--his pneumonia was viral; therefore the antibiotics did not help him anyway. May God have mercy and heal your boy soon.

    Today I wear Montale Blue Amber. Very, very, nice skin scent. The luscious vanillic base has lasted all through the night. The bergamot topnotes were teriffic, causing a soft, powdery feeling, and there were some notes in the middle that reminded me of the best part of Chanel No. 5, the drydown.

    It started calling to me last night. I knew before I went to sleep what I was going to wear today. That so rarely happens. I had a lovely compliment about it at lunchtime too. It lasts and lasts, I'm loving it.

    It is very strong. I have a bottle of it that I've never been able to use up. It just lasts forever, and it's not the best fragrance in the world is it? <g>

    Leivje, healing thoughts and warm hugs to both you and your son.

    Today I'm in Prada Cuir Ambre from a sample thanks to a sweet and generous BNer!

    Funny, because as soon as I put it on, I was reminded that I love and want to wear more PG Cuir d'Iris, and there's our dear Lady in Black, being a mind-reader and wearing it today!
