  1. The Perfume God, and praying for vintage.......

    by , 22nd August 2012 at 08:09 AM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    Following on from yesterdays story, regarding my box of vintage goodies and how they came about, i feel i should also share this bit of good news too, now it has "firmed up" as it were.

    i have done a fantastic job of avoiding meeting my husband's family during our 2 year courtship, ours was a long distance relationship, with me based in Ireland, and him in Alaska, so it was fairly easy to postpone meeting his mother. So it is safe to say, i don't know her well, and have ...

  2. Box of vintage goodies.......

    by , 21st August 2012 at 10:43 AM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    Today, i received via Priority Shipping, a box of goodies, for free, gratis, no obligation or strings attached. Although i was practically champing at the bit with excitement, i feel sure, most of you would be disdainful of my goodies. But one man's junk is another man's treasure, and the God Of Fragrance, saw fit to redistribute one person's underbed hoard, my way.

    This situation came about, as a result of an auction i won on Ebay, for a quarter ounce bottle of Arpege Extrait, something ...

  3. Sprechen zee german, well nein actually.....

    In 2003, or 2004, i used to comb the internet, in order to find fragrances that were considered "popular" by others, and during the course of my surfing, i happened upon a website, which gave Flowerbelle Blanca a number one placement. I set about trying to locate a flacon of this juice, which would render me seductive, beautiful, irresistible, attractive, witty, intelligent, everything i yearned to be, yet needed the exterior application of a catalyst to unleash all these dynamic qualities. ...
  4. Obsession - not the one by CK

    I have become obsessed by fragrance, as i knew i would. I possess that gene of becoming addictive in pursuits, except exercise, i must stress that. I have prayed to get obsessed by exercise, but no dice.

    But perfumes, ah, different matter altogether, because for me, it is a direct link with a feeling of being loved. An aunt of mine, very glamorous, she was, blonde, elegant, and completely emotionally distant towards me, gave me a bottle of Lentheric's Tweed, when i was 8.

  5. The obtaining of vintage finds.....

    by , 18th August 2012 at 10:02 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 ...
