THE IDES OF MARCH 2009
A mixture of Italian greenery, gleaming metal, and classical Roman cologne: rosemary, bergamot, lemon rind and vervain with costus, balsam, benzoin, gray amber, dittany, white narcissus and iris.

Bards of Ireland
THE DESERTED VILLAGE
Where wealth accumulates and men decay. A scent of opulence, luxury, depredation, and dissolusion: velvety orris root and glittering bergamot, ambergris, red currant, honey, and neroli, with red oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, and black musk.

THE DOLE OF THE KING'S DAUGHTER
Red roses, blood-flecked lilies, upturned earth, yew branches, and blood mingled with river sand.

EANACH DHÚIN
Unutterable grief expressed through the scent of balsam, frankincense, blackberry leaf, oud, white rose, driftwood, zdravetz, and bitter clove, beneath the cold waters of the River Corrib.

THE HOST OF THE AIR
Peat and rolling grass-covered hills, with wine-dappled heather, white clover, cloudberry, juniper berry, bluebell, dandelion, and cross-leaved heath.

Yeah, and it's a different blend than earlier versions, too - including dittany, which I adore.

I really like the idea of the Bards of Ireland series, but not so much the notes listed...

The Deserted Village might work on me, though orris is generally not my friend. The Dole of the King's Daughter, definitely not. Eanach Dhûin, possibly, but the cold water part puts me off because aquatics almost never work on me (despite me being a Pisces). And The Host of the Air, sadly, is very unlikely to work on me even though I really like the poem. Light floral-herbals like that very rarely go well on my skin. :-(

And yet, despite all that, I am half-tempted to go hunting for decants of the three of the four that could conceivably have any chance of working on me, just because. However, given that I'm up to my neck in unpaid bills right now, I should probably resist that impulse.

Well I haven't posted anything formal about doing decants yet, but I've pretty much decided I will, so if you decide later you want to pick a few up we can work something out.

(BTW, did you get my reply about working out a meeting? I feel really bad that I still have your other decants. You sure you just don't want me to pop them in the mail?)
