I couldn't agree with you more, whimsicaldiva! I was just discussing rose scents with another BN friend, & how I had dismissed them a while back as being too dated for consideration. They've come a long way baby! The spicier scents are right up my alley too. So far the one I found to be FB worthy is Lyric Woman. Sadly Portrait of a Lady was a total scrub for me. I was just too overwhelmed by it, but perhaps I should give it another go...very very lightly. I've not yet ventured into the ouds...they do intimidate me a bit. But I will be very interested to hear what others have to say here!
