    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.
