Yesterday, post treadmill, I tested Frédéric Malle’s Iris Poudre; wow! What a beauty! … for the two hours it lasted on my skin. Since I was in the mood for iris (and like to wear a sleep scent), before heading off to dreamland I sprayed Ormonde Jayne Orris Noir on both my wrists. Another winner from Ormonde Jayne—my wish-list for that house is getting long—but this is not a review.
This is the tale of a cat in love.
Cho, gifted to me by my mother-in-law almost four years ago, has slept at my feet every night. She is the lump I must be careful not to dislodge (or face the wrath!), and reliably goes to bed with me and wakes up with me every day.
Last night, after crawling into bed, and tucking my hands up near my face (mmm, iris! mmmm, Ormonde Jayne signature base!) so that I could enjoy my waft while drifting off to sleep, I was set upon by a noisy monster. Cho, purring at max capacity, laid down next to my face, and proceeded to knead my hand and wrist with her (too sharp, must file those) claws, while alternately licking my arms and face, and rubbing her head on me. I fell asleep like that.
Quite the connoisseur, this cat. She responds to several fragrances, but I have never seen such a demonstration from her before. I think Cho finally found her Holy Grail scent.
Other Cho faves: Boadicea the Victorious Delicate, Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, and Guerlain Shalimar (to a lesser degree).
It’s your turn!
