    House twins with Roberto today in Santa Maria Novella Angels of Florence. I bought a bottle this weekend from a local indie shop that has given me at least two samples of this over the last two years - I figured it was time to finally pull the trigger. Fortunately, the weather decided to be warm and sunny today, because this perfume deserves a beautiful day.

    Mike, Mouchoir de Monsieur sounds very interesting for my Guerlain Ho of a spouse. I will have to arrange for a sample to fall into his path sometime.

    Hey again, y'all -

    Thanks for the welcome back - it's always good to be home! I've had some time to read through a few of the threads I've missed, and inspired by the recent wave of appreciation for it, I'm in Iris Silver Mist this afternoon ...other lovely irises come and go, but none can top ISM. ♥




    mike - what a nice story! I'm frequently amazed by the generosity and thoughtfulness of perfume-lovers, always wanting to share the wealth ...such a lovely community. And yes, that was a bizzaro MM episode, indeed! What in the world was in that shot??

    Hi there, Kiliwia - glad to know there's finally some sun in your part of the world!

    Thanks, Mocha - we're really looking forward to the slow life in the French countryside, as well.

    And hello to you too, teardrop - smellin' *gorgeous*, as always.

    Hugs to ((Jon)), ((Erin)) and ((Wolfie)), just because it's been a while.

    jujy54, I wish you a rapid recovery from your surgery! Thinking of you & sending fragrant hugs your way.

    SOTD was Estee Lauder Azuree; the current incarnation of this lovely & often overlooked scent. I enjoyed Victoria's review of the vintage here; http://boisdejasmin.com/2012/05/este...me-review.html and Angela's from NST here: http://www.nstperfume.com/2007/05/11...erfume-review/

    I find it interesting that it, like my beloved Chamade were released in 1969. Two more scents Angela mentions released that year were Dioressence & Calandre; love these two, as well. Guess 1969 is "my" year for fragrance. As well as, landing a man on the moon, Woodstock & my all time favorite car, 1969 Mustang.

    Do you find you have a year where you love quite a few of the scents released that year?

    Sharing the evening love of Hermes in a little Kelly Caleche EDT, my summer leather. Although more aptly described by me as soft floral over a suede. This is not a love, but instead just a comfortable and easy wear.

    I think I will join Erin in watching the Wildcats tonight. My sister lives in KY, and I visit often. Might as well join in!

    Ended the day in Marni by Marni



    Always makes me think of Momma Quarry when I wear this, hope she's feeling better.


    matildaben - I'm sending you a PM now
    danieq - Oh that's right, you've got Zahd in your wardrobe now...isn't it a wild ride?
    CapriDog - what an awesome picture you posted - love it.
    RHM - I haven't researched what year most of my favorites are from...I'm going to pay more attention to that. The things we fume-heads think about...it's amazing, eh?


    I haven't tried my Mysore Sandalwood oil yet because this is undiluted oil and I really am afraid of putting it directly on my skin as I might be sensitive to it, so I have to buy some carrier (jojoba) oil from my local health food store tomorrow and once I have it, I'll apply some on my skin.

    More good news: My vintage Bois de Iles Eau de Cologne arrived!

    And it smells AWESOME! It's top notes are minimally damaged but the middle and base notes are solidly intact. OMGOMGOMG. I'm SO wearing this tomorrow as my SOTD!!!

    cello: YAY! So glad you're cheering the Cats on with me. The first half was a MESS but that has sort of become this team's trademark....second half they should come alive like they have been doing the past 4 games of this tourney.

    RHM, so glad to see the Grouch grinning today!!

    Mike, that's a thing of beauty.

    SOTE is Iris Prima and I just noticed it's now my 3rd most worn...which isn't anywhere close to correct (nothing will ever top Infusion d'Iris, but who's counting) but I was still surprised to see how quickly it marched up the chart! This one might be deemed FBW after all.

    There was a thread here recently about "your favourite year for fragrance launches".

    Edit; here it is!
