Parfums MDCI Un Coeur en Mai
Okay, give it a minute for the page to load, LOTS of pictures!
You knew this day was coming – it’s Patty’s Pets Day!!! Well, I will have a couple of review and a draw as well. Hey, I won’t inflict pain without giving back. Ready? Oh, come on, you know you want to!
That’s Buddy, my almost 5-year-old lab, who thinks the camera steals his soul. Even at the distance I took this picture, he is jittery, but he’s in his chair, what could go wrong? Lynus, the baby kitten, right out of the picture, who rolls through and ousts Buddy out of his chair about 30 seconds later. I’ve never seen a 3-pound cat so able to terrify and unseat a 70-pound dog from his very own comfy chair. Yes, my furry friends are spoiled beyond belief.
Boo, my big, black cat, refused to participate in pictures this time and for the previous 9 years of his existence. He does exist and sleeps right next to my nose every night. He waits until I go to sleep to take that position, which leaves me waking up about 10 times in the night either peeling Lynus off my head or moving Boo from my breathing airways so I don’t suffocate.
This is Rex the Magnificent, formerly Tyrannosaurus Rex Kitty as he was single-handedly wrecking my house when he was a kitten. He is my perfect and beautiful Toyger, and if you ever put even one finger on his fur, you would know why he is magnificent. There is nothing in the world that I have felt as soft as Rex, and that includes my uber-soft blankets that everyone that comes into my house fawns over. His personality is what makes him one of the coolest cats I have ever known. Indifferent, affectionate, maddening. I, of course, adore him.
Lynus and Vinnie, inseparable. Lynus won’t get in pictures by himself, unless it was the pictures he let me take when he was an ornament on the Christmas tree (in my Facebook pictures). This is the most hardcore cat I’ve ever run across. All animals back down to Lynus, and he’s only about five months old. He’s my youngest son’s cat, who I “temporarily” am keeping as they all decided they really shouldn’t have a cat in the dorms. Wherever there is trouble in this house, Lynus is nearby. I don’t know how Lynus can ever leave now – he’s wormed his way deeply into my heart and Rex’s and Vinnie’s so completely, he can’t ever leave. Boo and Buddy would happily pack his cat toys and escort him to the door today, however.
Vinnnniiiieeee Barbarino!!!!!!!!! Look at that chest and those wrinkles. His breeder wants to evaluate him as a show dog when he’s six months – he was pick of a really great litter. And while I’m laughing about becoming one of those Best in Show people ( she needs the Busy BEEEE!!!!!) , he is a natural ham, outgoing, social, and outrageously funny. I know now why people fall in love with English Bulldogs.
Now, nobody get offended at the caption. When Vinnie comes in from outside, he muscles around the house, looking for his kittehs and just gets all discombobulated and grumped if they’re napping and nowhere to be found.
Vinnie also kisses. When you pick him up, he hugs you with his paws and kisses you by putting his flat little mouth and nose right on yours. There’s nothing quite like a grunting, groaning bulldog wriggling around in your arms.
That’s the Perfume Posse Pet Parade for this Tuesday. Perfume? Oh, yeah! Let’s talk about and do a give-away on two more of the new MDCIs.
Parfums MDCI Un Coeur en Mai has top notes of fine orange essence, pineapple, galbanum; heart notes are ylang ylang , tuberose, orange blossom absolute, incense; base notes are ambergris, vanilla and musc. This one takes a while to develop, so be patient with it. It’s very much all orangey on the open, but the ambergris and musc show up pretty quickly, along with the incense notes, to heave it into a much more interesting direction than breakfast fruit. I’m not sure any description I can write will do justice to this. It is soft and heady and has a luminous quality that seems to just make it glow. When I first smelled this in Paris, and I admit to not having put it on since, my attention was distracted so completely by Peche Cardinal and Riche Orient that I didn’t quite get a focus on this. Rectifying that today, I am completely enchanted – it is gorgeous, understated, and it wraps around your nose and brain slowly, and it’s a scent I could easily sink into regularly.
But let’s let a couple of you find out for yourself. Drop a comment in, and I’ll give away a couple of sets of samples of these two – Parfums MDCI Un Coeur en Mai.

Thanks to everyone for playing. Now, back to pets. How many pets do you have? Dogs/cats/gerbils/birds/snakes? How many are too many? I’m pretty sure at 3 cats and 2 dogs, I’ve hit capacity just to juggle animals until the babies are more grown, but for some reason, the more I have, the less work it seems (except cleaning the catbox and buying cat and dog food), they all just seem to amuse each other more and provide me with hours of entertainment.
