Caillebotte - Rainy Day

Mmm. Holmesandwatsonlicious.

One little post here, separate from the upcoming perfume drawing, to simply say that these two photos are making me fangirlishly happy. Collapse )

Slash possibilities completely aside, they just look so dapper! And a little Victorian-seedy, which is kind of hot too.

Having been listening to another Holmes story on The Classic Tales podcast, I've been thinking the casting of Robert Downey Jr. is not as weird as it seems on the surface. Holmes has a quick, rational mind, yes, but he's also got a lazy way of tossing himself into armchairs and leaning back with his eyes closed to listen to people, plus that whole wild cocaine-taking side. The role fits pretty well, I'd say. (Plus, he's a good actor, so I think he can tackle it.)

Perfume giveaway: Fraicheur Muskissime

Hokay, perfume giveaway time!

Today's offering: Fraicheur Muskissime, by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, graciously donated by laleonaenojada. As before, it's a little 1 ml sample vial from The Perfumed Court, tested but mostly full.

Description: This accord of musk and bergamot, with its subtle notes of blackberries and raspberries, wraps you in its intimacy like a second skin. Sensual and discreet, it will shroud you in a veil of beauty. Fraicheur Muskissime is a ray of sun--a walk in a forest filled with wild berries!

It's a women's scent, though the muskiness is a bit unisex. It's quite lovely, and I give it away only because I see it's too expensive and hard to find for me to dare get attached to it! The above description, by the way, is from Luckyscent.com, since I couldn't find its listing anymore on The Perfumed Court. But I do notice Luckyscent also sells sample sizes. Hmm, could be convenient!

Enter to win this sample by leaving a comment here. I'll select the winner at random in one week. If you're not an LJ user, leave an email address where I can notify you if you've won. LJ users ought to be able to find out via the usual comment notification. International entries welcome. Good luck!
