I actually can sleep with it (readers know that I have a difficult time with scents at bedtime)!
Here's the notes (from Creed's website):
- Top Notes: Bergamot
- Middle Notes: Bulgarian rose
- Base Notes: Ambergris infusion and musk
I don't understand "soapy" - some folks have blogged about it being soapy. *shrugs* But I am totally and magically in love.
Okay so I'm all about "what does this scent make me feel like?" I don't think about past times or places specifically, but am romantically transported into now (which is weird, because this scent was supposedly launched in 1845). If I was done with my perfume journey, I would feel no shame stopping here. But I'm not done yet, though FdB will be wore by me often in the ensuing months and hopefully years.
Long live FdB!
Cuir d'Iris by Parfumerie Generale. It's very plastic smelling on me, and reminds me of the Girder and Panel construction set (plastic)-as kids we played with this set in the (musty) basement.
Penhaligon's Bluebell - ouch my head hurts! What IS it with so many floral-y scents that cause me headache?
