    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Irisss by XerJoff
    Another GREAT & ORIGINAL iris perfume.
    I want it to my collection as I wearing it from the sample.
    The only trouble is - too expensive.

    The only close thing I could compare with it is one scent from Le Collection Particuliere by Christian Dior - Passage with the number I cannot recall (there were rose, iris and tuberose in this highly limited Serie).

    Finishing the week with a new, to me, Guerlain:

    Guerlain Heritage

    Heritage was created in 1992 by Jean-Paul Guerlain. It was his concept to try and take the best of all of the Guerlain masculine scents and combine them into a scent that would represent the heritage of masculine fragrance making at Guerlain. I am a big fan of all of those scents and I was curious to see whether Heritage would be successful at achieving this lofty goal. The opening is classic as it uses lavender and bergamot cut with a little bit of citrus to make a powerful start. Funnily on me for a scent that is supposed to remind me of Guerlain masculine scents the beginning of this is more reminiscent of Shalimar. That impression is banished very quickly as pepper and coriander become the prominent players. This combination is spicy and does recall a masculine Guerlain, Habit Rouge. This comparison continues into the base as patchouli is the note that carries this scent to the classic "Guerlinade" of tonka and vanilla. I'm not sure that this is the synthesis of all of the Guerlain masculine scents that Jean-Paul Guerlain was going for but it is heavily laden with many of the accords and notes Guerlain is famous for and it displays its heritage, pun intended, proudly.

    Have a Fun-Filled Friday everyone.

    For me today, scent twins with BrothaG :wave: and sharing the house with a bunch of other wonderful-smelling BNers in Serge Lutens Chergui, just because it seems like a good fit for today.

    Chergui notes: Honey, musk, incense, tobacco leaf, hay, sugar, amber, iris, rose and sandalwood.
    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
