Hi Nostalgie! I was actually born in New Orleans, but I suppose I've been in Milwaukee long enough to call myself a Wisconsinite...although anyone who hears my accent my be inclined to disagree, lol!
Btw, I'm glad to see you posting again. I lurked for a few years before joining, and I always took note of your posts. It was one of yours actually that put the idea in my head that I needed to try Iris Ganache. If I recall correctly, you said you sampled it at the boutique and by the end of the day you had to return for a full bottle. So now I own it and love it and I have you to thank, and I thank you very much!
Thanks! It's always good to know where things are, even if they aren't anywhere near
I'm working still, too, but it's only a little after 5 my time. We'll see if I end up working as long as you did today -- I might!
Hey, thanks for your kind words on the Sniff and Speak thread! I answered you there, but I wanted to ask you where was that Jo Malone boutique you were shopping for your friends? I might be wanting to check out a Jo Malone boutique some time
I'll eat lots of chocolates for you my dear.
Would you believe it's going to be 25 degrees celcius today!!! Good friday indeed!!
I hope it's sunny out your way, so that you can go out for a lovely walk with your husband and your pouches.
We got back this afternoon from our Globe trotting...And I just wanted to touch base with you. I'm not tired because I really paced myself when I was there. And now coming home--there's Svetlana (our old cleaning lady-who is now our housekeeper) who has kept everything ship shape. Even Gracie comes and goes and rolls over to her orders in Russian.
What a smart dog!! So, don't worry about me getting over tired.
Cheryl, I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Easter. I hope the Easter Bunny brings you some nice chocolates.
I'm in Redondo Beach visiting with my Mom and my brothers and their families. Tommorow-we are going to Beverly Hills where my cousin and I will hit the boutiques--clothes and perfume with the gusto of General Patton. I can't wait. TURN ME LOOSE.
We will be home on Thursday.
Till then, I am your smelly friend,
Your review of Bal a Versailles is plain brilliant.
Lucy gave me a new pony. Check it out on my page. And please leave one of your pithy remarks.
Hey, all! I've just deleted all the visitor messages that contained my name--out of forum habit more than anything else. Then I realized I could block access to the messages to my friends and contacts only--rendering that action unnecessary. Sigh. Too many different technologies in my life.
I hope you are all having a lovely evening!
@ taketheair: I kind of prefer the Scherrer EDP, I must admit, but I think both are special scents. Only for the very strong.
I'll contact you about decants as soon as I get a break at work Things are pretty busy at the moment and the days have been long. Next week should be much easier.
@Hillaire: Thank you! In my own private lexicon I think of Bambou as having a "shampoo" vibe (in a good way) and I think of Ma Griffe" , "Ivoire", et.al. as having a "soapy" vibe.
Your Profile Picture is very, very lovely!
I am glad to hear you enjoy Bambou! Funnily enough, I wear it as often as anything these days. It always seems to be the right thing to spray on after the bath! I am not sure how old my bottle is; it's not the newest one, but it is the one most prevalent on ebay in the hexagonal bottle. Therefore, I suspect it's not the pre-1991 formula delineated in the basenotes directory.
Interesting! Thank you! Do you like the smoother or dirty/gritty better?
Also, I have my vials!!! Have you looked at my wardrobe? I'm sending out a package in tonights mail and I'd love to pop some samples to send to you too!
PM your address!
taketheair: mine is light amber. Nuits is darker and more orange-sih. Scherrer 2 is darkest of the three.
I also found a small manufacturer's sample of JLS EDP. It is the same light amber as the EDT. [And BTW it is a much gentler scent. The EDT smells kind of dirty, even gritty next to it]
