    Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain

    I'm posting because I have a question: did no-one else get "green olives in brine" from SDV?

    I tried it in the depths of winter, for comfort and lusciousness, and I sniffed it and it smelled just like "green olives in brine" on my wrists. I do like olives but I was expecting something very different from SDV.

    I'll try it again (can't due to a cold at present) before the weather gets too much warmer, but did anyone else get any "olives" at all from SDV??

    (In case it's weird chemistry, I'm not a smoker or drinker - I don't even drink fermented tea or any coffee - and I'm a vegetarian. Perhaps high-end French perfume isn't designed for someone like me?!)
