    I blame Mimi and her lily thread! I'm wearing Penhaligon's Lily & Spice and Lily Flower Attar, for a creamy, spicey, waxy, dirty lily. It's a real Marmite of scents - love it or hate it!

    And a right royal flypast for Quarry. Happy Birthday!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in one of my newer favorites for warm-weather, Fragonard's beautiful Belle de Soleil. Despite the tropical sounding floral notes, it doesn't smell exactly tropical to me. And although it isn't a suntan lotion sort of beach smell, it definitely smells beachy and sun-baked....like a sunny Mediterranean vacation. It's sweetly mellow and milky, sultry and warm, with just the right amount of citrussy sparkle to keep it from being oppressive. And it's different - I think it's the woody-sweet petitgrain that makes it so unique. If there's anything else that smells like Belle de Soleil, I'm not aware of it.

    Top notes - bergamot, orange, lemon petitgrain
    Middle notes - tiare, frangipani, jasmine
    Base notes - benzoin, musk, vetiver






    Happy Happy Birthday to you, Quarry! The world is lucky to have you in it!

    Y'all have a fabulous day!

    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.

    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...
