    Now I know where all the 1000 left in the world has gone. Nice to know it's in safe hands.

    I am salivating and weeping simultaneously.

    Kumquat introduced me to Mme. Mille just last year and I immediately sought out every iteration of it. And I Still Want More.

    Very good stash! I myself have several as well, including the parfum in a jade green glass bottle. Just divine!

    Mitsouko didn't do it for you? Did you have vintage parfum? That's quite something.

    For a cheap thrill, check out Houbigant- Aperçu still out there on the Internet. And for a more expensive , but flawlessly creamy, dreamy ride, try ​Profumum- Rosae Mundi.

    Oh, I just love "Caline" - fond memories are attached.

    Re: Chypres - you may wish to examine the "Chypre Mousse" by Oriza L. Legrand and "Chypre Palatin" by MDCI Paris.

    Isn't it something how that "one" will come and get you? For me, at least in the warm weather, it's Weil de Weil. Not sure whether it qualifies as chypre, but, oh, is it ever green. My first bottle was a gift form a friend's mother, and I rediscovered as part of the fragrance journey I've taken up in the past 5 years or so/

    Oh, my, I just came across this blog entry. Beauxvbatons13 sat down next to me, and the rest is perfume history and friendship! (I had just bought Mayotte at Bergdorf).

    I've been thinking of blind buying that one. I wonder what a summer, icy version of Insolence would be like. It sounds like it could be very nice.

    I do like Redneck Perfumisto's response... I must agree that trains are terribly romantic. For the introspective, they tend to give much to muse about, so that a good part of any train journey is spent in a sort of reverie. Perhaps it is because of the timeless quality of reverie that I do not perceive time's arrow upon trains. To view them as a moving stage that reaches its destination despite the near-motionlessness (and often the theatrical masks!) of its passengers is, however, a charming image.

    How easily can fragrances be enigmatic or alluring in this context. I suppose there is a slight wistfulness to trains, in that one is surrounded by strangers with whom one shares space strangely, being near yet remote. This mood is ideally receptive to such thoughts.

    I got introduced to perfume for the first time while on a train, going from New York to Cleveland this summer.

    Oh my gosh, what beautiful responses! Thank you so much redneck! Now I am in hot pursuit of A Brief Encounter...I can already feel a new obsession coming on...

    I think trains are romantic, too. The experience of being between destinations, taken out of your ordinary life, watching the world go by while you are in your own little "time's arrow" as Redneck says. It's all so attractive and magical. :)

    Oh yes. Our friend above is so erudite that I wouldn't dare to try to add anything, but can I ride on his wave and second all that he has said!!

    Thanks both.

    *sigh* too.

    Oh, and I am off to dig out my copy of Brief Encounter. Stations are the beginning of the journey......
