    Pierre Balmain-
    Miss Balmain

    Hot, rushing leather and galbanum;
    a swirl of satin and she's gone.
    Who was that stunning blond over there by the fire?

    The heart pounds as the furs are too warm.
    Everyone wants a cocktail.
    The cats snuggle on the sofa and enjoy
    the amusing conversation.

    A leather-floral-woody chypre with green top notes, ...

  2. Maturity

    I've been looking at my small perfume collection and eyeing up the Britney Spears Fantasies - I have Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy - and feeling I am too old for them. I like how Fantasy smells of raspberry spongecake to me and Midnight is all woodland berries and almonds to my nose, but I smell them on youngsters a lot.

Usually my stepdad, who grew up in Staten Island, will go with us since he knows how to do everything. He doesn't really LIKE going, but he will to help us out.

I also looked at Marc Jacobs Daisy but I think I'll get that in a few months when I can wear it as a springtime fragrance. I settled on Christian Dior's Dolce Vita which I fell in love with just before Christmas when I went on a shopping adventure with a gentleman friend of the family.

Loving perfume on the Internet since 2000
