Hey there Perfume Posse! We are in the middle of the moving house upheaval and still waiting on the benchtops for our kitchen. I know, first world problems but living without a kitchen is pretty annoying. It’s not even ready enough that I can start packing the cupboards, which would help alleviate the mass of stuff in boxes and crates stuffing the walkways and spare room. SHEMOZZLE! just about sums it all up. We are using the one, nearly finished bathroom and it’s all a bit funky.
We had a little trouble with the code earlier ALL FIXED!!

This is what Val had to say on APJ:
Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger:
Photo Stolen Fragrantica
Rose Iriseé by Jean-Claude Gigodot 2014
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, orange, vermouth
Heart: Almond, rose, iris, ylang-ylang
Base: Woody notes, cedar, patchouli, musk, vanilla, sandalwood
This opens with with a bright burst of Iris. Metallic and smooth. I expected rose. This irisean (?) burst however gives way quite quickly to a lush, velvety rose. It is perfectly lovely. Do not be deceived. It becomes very seductive as it heads into the dry down phase. Patchouli, vanilla, and musk entwine with the rose. Charming with a retro vibe. This is hands down my favourite of today´s three.
Neroli Blanc Intense by Jean-Claude Gigodot 2005
My favourite orange is a Terry´s chocolate one.
Neroli Blanc is a big time fragrance. No hiding your light under a bushel with this. It is thick and syrupy and packs a punch. Laced with jasmine and vanilla, hovering on a rich musky base, it warms you to the bone. Glamourous. Perfect for partying on the yacht dancing the night away. It comes in a serious chunk of glass. It weighs 400 grams, including the perfume. That should give you an idea. Very striking. Check out Bonkers About Perfume take on Neroli Blanc Intense.
What does my shopping list look like? I have a scent mule in the USA I send my stuff to and then we work it out somehow.
