    Day Three, F. Malle: Iris Poudre

    I've not been a big fan of iris. Coming from an early liking for opulent (and overbearing) spiced Orientals (Opium), I found iris ran counter to my preferences. Iris was either marked by a powdery cosmetic accord (Hiris) or was too vegetal and chilly (Iris Silver Mist); it ran counter to not just my tastes but to the perception of myself. Iris was too cool, not terribly gregarious, and seemed to me to have an arrogance that I could admire but which I would never seek to achieve.. I don't think anyone would believe me in an iris scent; I saw such things as the province of the intellectual and the aloof, of the Hitchcock blonde in her presumption of frigidity that of course drove men wild with lust and priapic fantasy of possession..

    Great. Why bother?

    Iris Poudre came to me through a sudden revelation that I appreciated aldehydic florals for the frontal attack on humidity. I made the bold step of purchasing Eau Premiere and when that worked as well as it did I ordered Iris Poudre, even though I had forgotten what it smelled like.

    I've been wearing it ever since, subject to one caveat: It fares poorly in stormy weather.

    IP departs from what I considered the norm by being a chalky iris and a gray iris. To be precise, it is a stone gray and it would prefer, if asked, to retreat behind a rock. After that initial aldehydic high, IP features a mineral-type powder (non-cosmetic) that is like a rosin and not a facial product. It isn't sweet and it doesn't have that organic vegetal note. The most interesting feature about IP is how it captures a formalist structure and a strange and surreal Modernism. Something that smells like tobacco makes a minor and surprising interference.

    It's worth noting that I do not receive most of the listed notes. I do get the slightly bitter ebony of the base, but only because this note is so distinctive to me as acrid. Also, the amber is of the metallic, non-gourmand variety and these two together reverberate through the long finish of the scent, mildly making noise.

    IP is a receding scent that defies getting a handle on where it is going. It seems to draw the wearer backward into what might be a gloom; it's a trickster that way. On the surface, it is a modern aldehyde that, like Cassie, seems a very clever reworking of a traditional theme. That would suggest IP has that same brisk tailoring as a classical aldehyde, but it only does so to challenge that idea.

    There's also a dirtiness of a richly mineral soil that appears once the top sparks off. This is not the same soil/earth I described in Une Rose, which is earthier and perhaps primeval. IP's soil is like growing soil, suitable for a certain type of plants alone, but who knows what those might be?

    I've noticed that some people react poorly to IP, apparently seeing "floral aldehyde" and expecting the sweetness of No. 22. IP is not sweet. This is a dry fragrance that tempers all of its floral components with a topcoat of ashy orris.

    Longevity is superb.

    Petruccij, it just struck me that I have no clue when the Parade is...! Have been there the last three years but somehow I've not been paying attention this year. Might be it's in August, anyway, better chance for sunshine. I'll have to find out when it's held post haste! Have fun at your end, and everyone else who's attending!

    Today I trie another two samples from the stash lovethescents sent me (thank you dearie!):
    Ava Luxe Figuier: LOTSA coconut. LOTSA. Bit excessive for my taste, actually. I do like it better than her Figue Noir, though, that went very perfumy on me. This is nice, just not for me.
    Tsi-La Organics Ilang Ilang (never heard of before): does anyone remember these?

    The top notes are a dead ringer for those candy necklaces. It made me laugh out loud when I realized what it was I was smelling. Gets powdery and less sweet soon after, and has an almost plasticky edge to it. Odd. I think I'm going to reapply just for the candy necklaces. Sign me up:

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero.

    My 29 year old son, who works for Google, lives in SF and is very involved in the local festivities there. Let's just say that it is a much better atmosphere there than here in Wichita. He usually walks with the Google contingent during the parades, and 2 years ago was excited to meet George Takei, who rode on their float that year.
    Enjoy your day, Petruccijc!

    Hubby is home and we had a nice reunion last night. Went to bed in Apres L'ondee. He wore Habit Rouge.

    Orion, interesting reading your thoughts on Iris Poudre. I had requested a sample of that but they didn't have any made up, so I received a card sprayed with it along with a lovely note signed by FM. I was so impressed by that gesture, and by the fragrance, that I was tempted to order it without trying it on skin. But I didn't. Not yet anyway.

    Chaya, glad to hear your head is better!

    Ubu, good luck in the 5k!

    Happy anniversary To the ComDivas and I know how happy they still are 21 years later.

    My final day Day 6 of my $100 Fragrance Wardrobe Challenge. Today I am wearing Murray & Lanman Florida Water which you can buy in the 9oz. EDC size from dealsbuzzhealth.com for 6.99. Which brings my six-day grand total to $96.73

    Murray and Lanman Florida Water

    I've been wet shaving with a double-edged razor for awhile now and I've been trying some of the eau de colognes recommended in the wet shaving community. Florida Water is one of the more highly regarded of these and after a solid 4-pass shave I sprayed some on. The first blast is an intense ginger which in something calle Florida Water is surprising. Y'know since Florida is so well known for their ginger. The ginger is bracing and refreshing but quickly to the rescue is something Florida is well known for, as a citrus note comes in and makes for a spicy citrus melange that is quite nice. The spice and citrus linger for a good while before transitioning into a light floral middle which leads to a vetiver base. Like many eau de colognes the longevity is modest and if you need something to last you all day it will require you to top it up at some point. This is a really beautifully constructed eau de cologne which is amazing when you consider the price tag of $5 for 4.2oz.!! Florida Water is said to have use in voodoo ceremonies, I don't know about that, but the designers of this one have definitely performed some kind of olfactory voodoo to make something this good at that price.

    Have a Superb Saturday everyone

    Welcome Sheglows!

    I've been enjoying Datura Noir so much from the decant I made that I've decided to take the sprayer off my bottle. It's now a splash bottle and I enjoy the effect. After some comparison side by side, I find that the fragrance is smoother and creamier when splashed on (well, actually it's more like smearing it on after pouring into my palm). When I spray this fragrance, there is a slightly abrasive or jarring quality in the beginning that makes it too heady. It's hard to describe, but it has kept me from wearing it on some days in the past. I also like how it projects much less by splash, even though I'm probably wearing much more of the fragrance than when I spray, more work friendly this way. Oh yeah, the whole point of this was to say Datura Noir is my sotd

    Biehl al02--on paper, this smelled awesome, a clean and modern amber. On my skin, it smells like potpourri or a scented candle--cherry candy, cinnamon wax and almond. It really smells bad on me

    Profumum Santalum--I think I should be happy--this is the first Profumum that stinks on me. I am not having much luck today, but to be honest, the last thing I need is to lust for another expensive fragrance. Anyway, this one smells like wood shavings, gasoline and ammonia.

    Le Labo Labdanum 18--so far, I am not feeling very charitable. This one smells like iris mixed with amber--the rooty, dirty, green kind of iris mixed with sweet powdery vanilla and resinous cistus. The arrangement is jarring, but I admit it could be something that grows on me.

    Kai by Kai--ok, confession time. I have never smelled gardenia (which this fragrance is supposedly centered around). After smelling it, I am still not sure I have smelled gardenia. To me Kai smells more like lilac, which is great, because maybe the lilac-craving folks would like to take this one for a spin. It seems well made and refined, but maybe not "me".

    Neglected my paints and spent the afternoon sniffing some wonderful samples from sloan_8013 the current fave being Montale Aoud Leather..much less medicinal than some of the others (don't get me wrong ... I LUV medicinal) an aged suede with a whiff of lime blossoms. Yumsters.

    There seems to be some kind of JLo vibe in the air today; started with Miami Glow. However, it ended up feeling a bit wrong after all, so switched to Escale et Portofino,

    Asha,

    To me Kai (oil) smells like a very realistic live gardenia flower. It doesn't smell like lilac to me. Our local nursery carries potted gardenias and I broke down and bought one, once-- but I found them to be temperamental plants, reluctant to bloom. Still, you may want to check out your local nursery, maybe you'll be lucky and catch one in bloom!

    Today I wore Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare. I've had it on for 11+ hours and it still smells great. This is a very linear scent but it's so good that I wouldn't want it to evolve.

    Ooh, 30 Roses, I'm glad you chimed in! I'll have to keep that nursery idea in mind
