Intermission: Iris and chocolates, thanks I needed that!

After that last post, I needed something soft, embracing, sweet, but not too much, just ever so… and the postman brought me a little decant of Iris Ganache by Guerlain. His timing was perfect. I am typing away surrounded in a cloud that is composed of soft earthy iris root and white chocolate. This scent was discontinued this year which is bittersweet and reminds me of the adage “Kiss the joy as it flies.”
Reviews on this beauty have been mixed, but here is a link by someone who seems to love Iris Ganache just as much as I do, and she has posted links to a variety of reviews. Enjoy The Non Blonde’s delicious description of one of my favorite contemporary Guerlain compositions:
