    Happy birthday, Quarry! Look what I found in a quarry (well, a mine is a kind of quarry, right?) for your birthday gift:



    I was overcome by the iris talk yesterday, so today I'm trying Keiko Mecheri's Iris Pourpre. Very pretty, very irisy! Nice, earthy, but sweet and rich. It smells like a much, much higher-quality version of my other iris, Yves Rocher Secrets d'Essence, but a little sweeter and maybe less cold/metallic. This is one of my favorites among the Mecheris I've sampled -- it has real presence.

    I'm doing chores on this hot day Taylor of London Lily of the Valley ice cologne stick. For some reason, I don't like the spray of this, but the ice cologne stick is refreshing-- and portable.

    Today's SotD is Chemical Bonding by Ineke (edp) from a sample.
    It's a lovely, citrusy floral; a nice contrast to the never-ending rain.

    HB HRH Quarry!


    My SOTD started out as Chanel Bel Respiro which faded too fast (an itty TPC decant, I didn't have the heart to spray on more but should have) and then I went GREEN in Guerlain Vetiver (vintage)...

    After lunch spritzed on some Equipage and enjoyed the nutmeggy goodness of that scent for a while, whilst attempting to not fall asleep on my work keyboard and short out the thing by drooling on it. Got a "little assortment of goodies" (an understatement!) from Twolf today and am contemplating which one to try first...hmm...hmm...

    Happy Birthday wishes to Quarry! May you have many more fragrant b'days to come.

    Kumquat, what a magnificent painting to go with your SOTD!

    Lessa, that is a fabulous looking flower cake. Love the gummy worms in the "soil."

    Wearing No 5 EdP, or what's left of it.

    Have a good evening, all!

    Mrs. Q, enjoy your eel - uhm, I hope anyway

    SotE is my first sample run of Ibitira from Xerjoff. See the specific thread for a quick review. Lovely is a good summary.

    , I hope it was happy! Since I'm chiming in late, I've decided to send my little friend over to serve you tomorrow's breakfast in bed. It's Green Eggs and Ham, of course!

    Wore Fantasia de Fleurs for an evening at the movies.

    Hope Quarry's eel dinner was shockingly good!Yes, I realize it was probably not an electric eel, but it does sound more exciting. I have never eaten eel, the eel scene in the Tin Drum sort of ruined the notion for me...ok maybe it's the look of eels that did it.

    Eek Zibeline! (that movie is the only movie that ever made me physically ill. Of course I think I also had food poisoning at the time.)

    But... I'm sure eel is quite fine, if prepared properly!
