    Morning Mr A, Jon, Danny, tdem!

    First of all a special mention for lucasia's review of Iris Silver Mist on yesterdays thread. Wow! I find it really difficult to describe and I could never break it down like that. I loved the review and I learned a lot.

    Today, my old "go to" SMN Acqua di Sicilia this a.m. because I had a blood test and a dental check up. Now...........well well, what have we here? I will surprise you with this one. Caron Naimez Que Moi! Aw, what a beautiful, romantic thing. I love it!! So thank you L, and I blow you all a romantic kiss.

    PS Who was wearing Naimez Que Moi very recently, I remember someone was?

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Hello everyone!

    I wore Yves Rocher's fresh and green Naturelle for my run this morning, and now, post-shower, I'm surrounded by the gorgeousness of vintage-'85 Gucci No3 ...so chic and elegant, and possibly my favorite floral-chypre in the whole world!

    Y'all have a fantastic day!

When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Good morning! No.5 EDT today. Would love some of Coconut's hair mist to go with it! Did manage to snag some of the LE Sheer Moisture Mist last week, very happy with that.

    A belated warm welcome to Redderz!

    Foustie, didn't our young gent do a great job with ISM? Lucasai certainly understands notes. Can you believe he picked Iris 39 apart just as well? I wore it for some time before I could really nail that one down!

    It is me who's blushing at being called a lass! But don't stop! Actually I think that my little sample of NQM may have done the grand tour of Europe and the UAE! Ha Ha.

    Good morning. Been away for a few days. Today I am in a fragrance that I have been working on for a few months. I decided to start making some of the perfumes from briefs that basenoters contributed to the dead basenotes fragrance project. The first one I picked was 30roses .

    "Winter Frost"
    Notes are:
    Top: bergamot, clary sage, lemon
    Mid: green tea, jasmine, rose, galbanum
    Base: orris butter, frankincense, labdanum

    3OR will be receiving samples soon for eval. Mrs. 30r pls message me your daughters name so I can mail her for her opinion, would like her involvement during the process.

    The fragrance is decidedly "cool" moves from a sharp cold green to a soft violet grey.

    Woke up and it's cool and rainy so this seemed appropriate. I need a bottle of this stuff again.

    Oh, my wooznib-- she will so so excited! I will PM you with her name.
    She is getting at least one award tonight at the annual academic awards night at her high school; we got the formal invitation to attend. She's a hard worker and I'm very proud of her.

    Evangeline, we are in synch! I just happened to test a sample of Gucci III extrait today received from a BNer. It is old-fashioned, but superb.

    There seems to be an underlying iris theme around here this week - I'm happy to indulge further this evening with VC&A Bois d'Iris.







    30R / L - Please forward hearty congrats to your daughter. You are justifiably proud.

    30 Roses - that is really great about your little one Proud Mom you should be !
    Please give her my many congratulations and a big hug .

    This morning I'm wearing a perfume I don't often take out . The new version Chloe by Chloe . I'll never forget Octavian Coifan calling this a detergent rose ! LOL!
    It has mega longevity as well but I have fond memories with it.

    Good late afternoon everyone.

    Ah, what a day! Another exam-test this morning. This one was particularly difficult and tough. I'm afraid that there's a chance I'll have to re-take it. Photochemistry is soo difficult. On the other hand I just found out I passed my last week's intellectual property protection test.

    Right after the test I jumped into my white lab coat to carry on some experiment stuff for my university first degree project. I spent more than 6 hours in lab today which made me very exhausted but... Everything went so well that my research is absolutely finished now. The only thing I have to do is to work with the data I gathered, analyse them and take conclusions.

    SotD was Jean-Charles Brosseau Bois d'Orient - this one was dull and uninteresting from the very beginning. It's less woody than the name would suggest. Sillage was almost non-existent and longevity wasn't outstanding.


    SotE will be Pour Un Homme de Caron - I bought it last year and enjoyed it for a few months, but I lost my love for it without any particular reason. That happens, right?
