Oh those lilies

...Have you tried the new Cartier "Lys et Rose?" Better than the original (which you don't like... and neither do I). Unfortunately, I'm not an expert when it comes to lily-fragrances...so I'm afraid I haven't got any other ideas than the above mentioned. Good luck with your search. Let us know what you found.

...7.71" nor "Baiser Volé" (EdT & EdP) appeal to me, the former for being loud and monolithic and the latter for its synthetic demeanour. I dismissed "Gold" by Donna Karan because of its screechy amber, although I adore the lily in this.Penhaligon's "Lily & Spice" is lovely but for some reason I can't...

...kept on sniffing my arm, but would not rush out and buy it. "Anima Dulcis" by Arquiste (cocoa with chili) is more to my gourmand notes taste. The "Gold Leather" - that seems to be the "star" and it does smell very pleasant, honey like with a soft, very expensive, leather note. I can see the appeal...

Of course, it can’t be real.” Penka can’t tell him the truth. Her brother’s Thracian... for her. Of course, it can’t be real.” Penka can’t tell him the truth.

Part 9 - Rose with Other Flowers
...frozen in grief. Even missing, Rosa has what Penka wants--Anton's attention. Angrily she turns to Nikola. “Well, my brother's offered Thracian gold and her father’s teams are searching.” To Nikola she sneers, “Be careful. Like it says in the Bible, ‘where your treasure is, there will... be also’.” Anton snorts. “Read the papers, Nikola. My family has offered a ransom and so has Rosa’s. Nobody needs imaginary Thracian gold.”Penka rushes off, suppressing a sob. Would anyone ransom her? Nikola and Anton, though they’ve had no sleep, leave to keep searching. They go...

Fortune hunters come, lured by tales of Thracian gold. Nikola has no need to hunt. He has already found a treasure and hidden it beneath the great tomb in an undiscovered passage—a heap of yellow... Knowing what to do, he runs back to town and places an ad in the local paper. “In payment for the return of Rosa Petrov unharmed, Thracian Gold.” Now he must only wait. Nikola returns to the rose stage, newly decorated with streamers and perhaps the output of an entire field of the...
