Yesterday, B-man and I completed our usual Saturday run around that included Macy's, my favorite liquor store (B-man has dubbed this store 'The Princess' because it's the only one I want to go to anymore) and the library.
Ahh, I love the friendly smell of a library; that compelling mix of nostalgia, leather and books that have been touched by multiple hands.
My nose, Daphne, had previously suggested that I layer L'Occitane's Iris with Chanel's Sycomore. This makes sense because a vetiver vibe runs through both (heavily so in Sycomore, and in Iris as an accent).
As it turns out, they are lovely together from top notes to drydown. Iris softens the green bite of Sycomore, and Sycomore adds a nice smoky depth to Iris.
Accidentally perfect for the library.
Believing that my perfumes could have a dual role makes me feel they each have a purpose, on their own or in partnership with another.
Suddenly, this matters.
