Damn, leave it to Neil Morris to develop a white-flower-centric scent I ADORE!
Today for me it's Neil Morris Fragrances Moulin Rouge!

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

I've sampled Jacques Fath green water today. I've sampled this in the past and gave it a miss for some reason, but I've found it lovely today. There are similarities with other mint fragrances that have bergamot, orange, lemon, herbs notes etc but I've added this to my list to either buy a bottle of in the near future, or certainly get hold of a decant. It's no Selection Verte, but it's a damn site cheaper.

Eau Claire des Merveilles by Hermes (1st time from a sample)
Wonderful. I almost bought a bottle when I was at Bloomingdales today, but I resisted the urge & decided to give it one more full wearing before I do.
