"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson

Irisss by Xerjoff
I think this is slightly more satisfying than Iris Silver Mist - which has been in my top 10 for a long time. Very much like Iris Silver Mist for the first minutes, drydown is more floral with jasmine and rose and richer and fuller. While ISM can turn soapy and thin in the drydown, this doesn't. Stunning, stunning fragrance.
Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza
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..."

Vintage Jacques Bogart Furyo
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
