Friday Mail: New Perfumes!

I just got a pile of decants in the mail, and I’m happier than a cat in a slanket.

Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist
Carrots, wonderful, just-yanked-from-the-earth carrots. I’ve been wanting to try Iris Silver Mist for ages, but being a Paris exclusive it’s evaded my nose until today. An austere lady in blue-gray silk never scowled so seductively. **Update from several hours later: the dry-down of ISM reminds me a LOT of Prada’s Infusion d’Iris, which I love. Stunning!
Guerlain Attrape Coeur
Guerlain Apres L’Ondee
Parfumerie Generale Felanilla

The hubby is wearing this one, and we both identify it as a lovely homage to Shalimar (the original!)
Parfumerie Generale Louanges

Above image is our cat, Cho, in her slanket at the foot of the bed. She doesn’t like to get out of bed until late afternoon.

  1. Sorry, but the SL Iris stuff is on e of the worst things I smelt – scrubber? SCRUBBER! Had to wash it off immediately. And I am a tough one, I tell ya 😉

    1. LOL! To each his own, right? Now, if anyone sends you any, you must promise to forward it to me 😉

      The “scrubber” effect is pretty amazing—I’ve only met a few true scrubbers, but, boy oh boy, it’s an aweful experience!
