Fleur de Narcisse, LA and babies oh my...

Oh my has this ever been a busy week!!

We are thrilled to announce the birth of Decklyn James Harrington, born October 31, 2006 at 5:05pm. Coming in at 8lbs and 2oz and 20.5 inches... he is quite the beauty. i am one helluva proud auntie Lisa!! LOL!! Let me tell you. Hang tight for the announcement of our Grand Prize winner as I mistakenly had Mish monitoring the dates and I need her password to get into her mail to find the winner!!

Here are pictures of the pride and joy of Beauty Cafe!! Baby Decklyn.

Oh and I bet you had no idea I snuck away for a few days to go home to LA to recoup after the accident, did you???? See things can run soooo smoothly here, even with me. An old friend of my ex's found me after 17hrs (HEE HEE) and we had a lovely weekend together. And yes, we even saw dolphins.. which in all my 30yrs living in LA i never did... here are some pics of my Weekend in LA

And okay.. on to why you are really reading the Beauty Cafe Blog, LOL!! L'Artisan Parfumeur's latest release, limited edition I should add, Fleur de Narcisse should be in late this week. We have a limited supply with our first shipment. I am not sure if we will be getting a tester or not... I'll know when the shipment arrives... but here's the juicy details... CANNOT WAIT!! It will retail for 295.00 and we are currently accepting preorders.
The year 2005 was a vintage year, a harvest of exceptional quality. All the ingredients of the Narcissus were at their absolute best, in a divine and mysterious equilibrium decided by nature.
Like a goldsmith, l’Artisan Parfumeur finely carved out each harmony from the absolute, so that all the subtle facets of the fragrance come together to create a thrilling moment.
The fragrance opens on a top note of grassy green freshness, with accents of the country and wildflowers, and nuances of blackcurrant bud and freshly cut hay. The sensuality is ambiguous, nearly as masculine as feminine, evoking the powdery scents of mimosa and iris, and finally losing itself in the honey-like sweetness of sublime blond tobacco and the bewitching notes of moss and leather.

This wildly original, infinitely complex fragrance speaks to all the senses with incomparable elegance. A concentrate of nature that magnifies all the qualities of a harvest forever unique, it has only one flaw: its limited quantity. A fleeting miracle, it will be remembered by connoisseurs as a rare moment in fragrances. Once the 3,000 numbered editions have been sold, no re-edition will be possible. Only the numbered bottle, illustrated with flowers and its top etched with “Fleur de Narcisse 2006” will remain, kept in its wooden box with narcissus print silk paper.

Hope ya'll are having a great weekend!!

Love, laughter and friendship,

Beauty Cafe
