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..."

Hi, all you wonderful-smelling BNers!
I'm making one of my episodic "stealth posts" (have been mostly off the boards due to grad school, work, family and life-in-genreal craziness) but I MISS EVERYONE! Hoping to be back to more regular posting in a few months.
I may need to become scent triplets with dougczar and mlsweeney later in the day (Bond No. 9's New Haarlem is gorgeous!),but for now I'm in a delightful "seasonal transition" scent for me: TDC's Bois d'Iris (thank you,Jean -Claude Ellena!) TDC's in-house description of Bois d'Iris includes cardamom, which would explain why I have a viscerally positive reaction to it (I just love cardamom. Period end of sentence). That said, the note breakdown *doesn't* list cardamom, go figure.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Iris.
Middle Notes: Geranium, Ylang-Ylang, Coriander.
Base Notes: Cedarwood, Leather, Vetiver.
For me this is one of those great fragrances that balances the warmth needed to get through these last chilly days of early spring, while also anticipating all the wonderful greenery that's on the way.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
