    @Jon, you've forgotten about me. I'm in the iris brigade as well.

    No scent today - ashamed to say that in my rush to leave the house this morning I forgot! I expect that's grounds for being drummed out of BN.

    Just dropped by to wish 30 Roses a very happy birthday (and thanks for the info on original No 1 yesterday. You're right that they don't appear similar at all. I get no rose in the new version. It's more green than floral to me, it reminds me of Gucci Envy).

    Oh yes you are!!!

    Jon, well, you did it. I am scent twins with you right now. I almost bought a bottle two days ago as I had 20% discount, but then I came across deep discounted Merrell shoes and out money for Impossible Iris went. Those of you who are familiar with Merrell, probably know that finding few pairs in your size at deep discount is as easy as spotting chupacabra. But Impossible Iris is very near in my future

    Happy, happy birthday to 30 Roses! I wanted to take this moment to thank you from the depth of my heart for being one of the most wonderful Basenoters, for all your help and guidance, and of course, for Iris Pallida which (I admit it freely now) was entirely your fault!

    Thank goodness I came here before applying scent today! Had no idea what my mood called for but now I know it has to be Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare, otherwise known as the 30 Roses rose! I am very stingy with my 1 oz. bottle of this, keeping it for special occasion wear only. Today most definitely qualifies as an excuse to wear it!

    A very happy birthday to you, 30R! We love you lots!

    You're spot on, Mr. Rodgers, Impossible Iris is on my wishlist! It's fantastic, a happy, sparkly and almost warm iris. Truly something different for us iris lovers, so pleased with this one. You and Whitefluffy smell just divine!

    Thank you so much for the well wishes yesterday. I am feeling much better and am in the office today. It definitely feels good to get out of the apartment.

    Happy birthday to 30Roses! I hope you stay warm and comfy tonight as that storm hits.

    Jon, I'm envious! A month in New Zealand! How fabulous That's definitely something to look forward to.

    I am revelling today in the wonderful skank of Une Fleur de Cassie. My decant is nearly drained, so I suspect there's a FB of this one in my near future.

    I'm thinking I should start taking a look at the Ramon Monegal line, too....

    ExtremeK, do check out Monegal's Cuirelle, a beautiful, honeyed, incense-y suede. It may be right up your alley! That one made my wishlist, too...sigh.

    Oh, my! Lots went on here while I was out at BJ's! Many thanks for the good wishes!

    Mike and PerfumedLady, you smell wonderful in FdTRB!

    I have to head to Mom's now but not for as long as I planned as I have to take my daughter to an appointment after school-- will have to stop back later to check on her. Mom is really muddled and upset this week. We haven't gotten the urine test results back yet but I'm sure it's a UTI. A couple of days ago she suddenly forgot that my father died 3 years ago and has been calling a lot asking where he is, etc., thinking he died last month, thinking a coworker of his kidnapped and murdered him, etc. Weird stuff, but I think it will clear when the antibiotics kick in. I hope so, anyway!!

    Thanks for the link, Jon. Foustie's review is very appealing.

    I used up the last of my Iris Poudre sample, I have hoarded it for many, many years. My thinking was to use it up because I had a bottle being shipped to me. When I called FedEx & entered the door tag number, they said it had been delivered yesterday. What? Huh? So where is it?
    Apparently, it was left at my front door.

    Now, I'm scared! They gave me a confirmation # & said the driver would come by within 24 hours & show me where he left it.

    I need me something soothing to calm me down: Fleur de The Rose Bulgare (which I bought from 30roses) will do just fine.

    This shows exactly what I feel like right now.



    And a little bit of this....

    Well, what a difference a few hours makes! The sun came out and the day became beautiful and I got to play some tennis, tennis that I thought would be cancelled because of the bad weather, so color me happy! Smelly, too - I'm celebrating the sudden sunshine now in one of my favorite blue-sky-and-puffy-white-cloud sorts of fragrances, Lancôme Climat.

    Happy Birthday 30 Roses - I will wear some Creed Fleur de Rose Bulgare tonight, in your honor. ((raises a glass of champagne))

    Woke up in the mood to wear this, something I hardly ever wear to the office. I own the vintage Parfum de Toilette, perhaps the spiciest most intense version. Heliotrope for days.

    Well the day is almost over! I found a pair of cozy, short shearling boots at BJ's for only $30...I'd been eyeing Uggs but didn't want to shell out the big bucks so this was perfect.

    RHM, any news on the missing bottle? What recourse do you have if it was stolen?
