Comments: Starts with a strong bourbon smell (the cheap stuff). Makes my cat sneeze profusely. After 5 minutes – lotiony. After 10 minutes, turns into an iris-floral. In an hour – it had finally dried down to a yummy iris/almond/vanilla scent. Big fan of this drydown. Even more interesting – when I woke up it smelled like Andy Tauer’s Le Maroc Pour Elle. So 1 of 2 things happened. Either the 30 hour old Tauer woke up and ate the Hiris or the Hiris dry-down really smells like this. I need to re-test this another time – when I haven’t worn the Tauer in a week or 2.

Date: 3/6/08 Weather: 40 degrees and sunny

Comments: Layered this over 1 hour old Eau de Merveilles (which had pretty much disappeared). Still smells like I’ve been bathing in bourbon for the first 5 minutes or so. Then it becomes an iris/woody floral. Not getting the lotion note this time. Also getting a very strong Guerlinade note – which I think is on my sweater rather than the perfume. Actually – I KNOW it’s on my sweater (right sleeve). 1 hour in – get the yummy almond/vanilla/iris drydown (which is NOT the sweater).
