Today from the Box of Squee: Ephemera

I'm enjoying going through all the General Catalog scents like this; there's so much good stuff in there. I mean, the Limited Editions are really fun, and some of them are more than fun, they're spectacular, but the GCs--they're inexpensive and always available. Kinda like this website. Biggrin

Today the Fickle Finger of Squee picked Ephemera, described as:

The scent of loss, love and the echo of time without end: sorrowful violet and chamomile with muguet, white geranium, calla lily and tea rose with a hint of autumn leaves.

In the imp: Violet and...pineapple?! Seriously, I smelled candied pineapple in there...

Wet: A lovely, soft, sweet violet, rich but not heavy.

Dry: Violet and muguet, tea rose, and at the very back, the dry leaves and a little geranium. Really one of the loveliest of BPAL's violet scents. This is not an everyday scent; it reminds me of dressing up and having some place fancy to go to. If it were the 40s, I'd wear this out on the town for cocktails and a dinner show, then romantic dancing afterwards. Something you wear with furs, an evening gown, and a hat with a veil. I'll have to see what Sir thinks.

Rocco: F***. You guys could do this every goddamn day!
Murphy: We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.
Connor: That is nicely put.

While I'm not sure that the general crowd here is likely to ID that quote without researching it, I remain hopeful. It came to mind when I saw MeiLin's "inexpensive and always available" comment.

Now you must go rent the movie Biggrin I used to say that it had lots of swearing and violence for the guys, and lots of strapping young shirtless Irish brothers for the girls. Now, and particularly in this forum, I think I'd better just say "Hey...swearing, violence, and shirtless guys. If any of the above appeal to you, go watch it."

It still holds the crown for the use of the most grammatically correct and varied f-bombs in a single paragraph that I've ever seen.

Watch it. V commands it. (He's crazy, do what he says)
