    ExtremeK, I see you have figured the RM suggestions out - it was not me becuase I have not sniffed Cuirelle yet, but I have a sample to try very soon, along with Eau Duelle (coincidence :0 )
    Then, by all means, cello, please let me know if you smell a resemblance, or if I'm off in my own little olfactory world. Did you like Impossible Iris? (i.e., the not-an-iris Iris?) (Fans of Grosse Pointe Blank may get the reference.)

    extremeK, I did sample Impossible Iris, but I did not find it to my liking. There was something very sharp in the opening that ruined the whole experience for me. I will try again, but I have my Iris Poudre for a somewhat similar type of iris, and I prefer the IP.

    I'm wearing Cuir Mauresque today. It's a day off for me and I'm spending it watching it snow again.

    Jon, that is another beautiful picture you posted! It makes me wish I was looking at white sand beaches instead of white snow drifts!

    Happy birthday donna!

    Hugs to all (especially lucasi) ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Btw, PL, do you find the spicy/incense-y drydown of Cuirelle at all similar to the incense-y vanilla of Eau Duelle? Because I sure do. (Mike, too, if you have thoughts....)
    Oh, I hope you didn't fritter away too much time figuring that out! What really matters is that you've found some new loves! But I'm glad you reported back, I think we all know how nice it is to be right! I love Cuirelle, too and yes, I get your drift about Eau Duelle. In my mind, I was thinking of Bulgari Black as a bit similar in composition to Cuirelle and Black also makes me think of Eau Duelle. I'd say all are relatives. Of course, I'd just have to love the Monegal most of all, being the most expensive! But it's also the least sweet and that's the clincher for me. Huge congrats on your lovely II purchase! I'm very happy for you! From the beginning, I thought this could be an iris for those who are iris-challenged. Anyone who normally finds iris somber, moody or funereal needs to try Impossible Iris-it's none of those things! Just pure, sparkling happiness!

    I'm in HdP Tubereuse 3 L'Animale for the evening. Have a great night, all!

    Good afternoon, good smelling bunch. Started with 1876 and somehow am feeling very tired, almost fainted at the store although I ate before. I guess 7 days in a row of doing double shifts gets to one eventually, non? Even to energizer bunnies running on 4 to 5 hours of nightly sleep, normally. Continuing in Sinan.

    Happy Birthday to donna225.

    Hugs to many of you.

    Twolf, seven days of double shifts sounds like an absolute b***h & must surely take its toll. l do hope you get some decent rest now, it sounds like you need it!

    Twolf, you are *somehow* feeling very tired??!! Good lord! I would have collapsed in a heap by this point. I'm amazed you're vertical

    I hope you have a chance for some much-deserved rest soon.

    PerfumedLady, I agree with you about Impossible Iris -- it's an iris for those of us who struggle with Iris. I'm glad you're getting the Eau Duelle vibe, too. I was beginning to think I was crazy.

    Cello, yes, now that you remind me, I remember Iris Poudre being one of your favorites. I also really like that one, except my BF has claimed it, and he's a little funny about our sharing fragrances.
