Today, the iris in this really came through, sharply. I made a connection to the iris in this & in No. 19 vintage EdC by Chanel. The Hermes doesn't have those aldehydes but it has a tart, almost salty quality to it that is distinctive & very tenacious. I love this stuff on a hot Spring day like today.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
