    A nice sparkling orange cologne, green and balsamic.
    It’s bracing like no other but the longevity is so weak: 15 minutes at most (more on clothes).

  2. Now and Then - my comparison....

    by , 8th September 2012 at 08:17 PM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    Well,
    I'm just going to ramble a little on a subject i find very interesting, due to my enthusiasm for vintage fragrance.

    My memories of my "Nana" fragrance-wise, are kind of fond. She had in the drawer of her sideboard, a very cheap cosmetic bag, which contained all of her cosmetics and fragrance. It was very sparse, and had a cardboard tub of "rouge", a red lipstick, and red nail polish. And casually thrown in there, was her fragrance collection. A miniature ...

    so, as i previously blogged, my mother in law had earmarked an old ladies perfume, and was sending it to me.

    I received today, 2 medium rate priority boxes, jam packed with all kinds of goodies. A picture speaks a thousand words, so i did just that, and took pictures of my haul. I am still speechless anyway, and the palpitations of excitement have not yet worn off.
    Here are my goodies:

  4. The obtaining of vintage finds.....

    by , 18th August 2012 at 09:02 PM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    So, it's Saturday, my garage sale day, and being new to vintage collecting, i thought this might be a previously unplundered wealth of vintage treasure.
    My other attempts - Craigslist ads - brought me 1 success, then several spectacular failures, where i got ripped off and cheated. My fault, i had not researched the fragrances i was purchasing, until i got them home, and found i could have bought them brand new and cheaper elsewhere. I have also bought a bottle, that didn't even spray, and ...
  5. Egoiste "vintage"

    This isn't quite a review, just my thoughts on my particular bottle of vintage Egoiste.

    I loved my Egoiste mini which was bought new, and lots of people seem to think the vintage formulation was better or much better, especially the sandalwood note. I looked for a bottle on Ebay, from a seller with strong feedback, and took the plunge.

    My experience has been interesting. At first I thought, everyone is right, this is better than the current formula, more dense. But ...
