    Today the word "Juicy" occurred to me....but, as all words do, it failed. Notice how it *never* gets icky......

    I don't remember "Pavlova." I remember the bottle, but I have no idea how it smelled. You'd better mind those cats, Dear! No underestimating the cunning, sisterly techniques of my Grisette and Lambasle (the Marquise) They are ferocious killers, and no cat has ever dared to even begin to fight back. Sisters are like that: When they grow up together, there's no stopping their working in expert synergy.....I'm still trying to dissect FILLE D'EVE......

    air mdm allows free roam to animals, provided they don't annoy dachshunds, which typically stay put in mdm's dressing room. Access to the hello kitty cabin, as well as all cabins other than the gd-h quarters is strictly limited to cocottes and hors concours passengers. Thank you for flying air mdm.

    OMG! there's SUCH a "Ricci-ade!" you can't think! Ricci, to me, made some of the most exquisite perfumes in the world. Unfortunately, though, none of them are remotely as they should be nowadays: I knew all of them so well because my mother was a "Ricci Only" type--the big numbers on Ricci are:
    L'Air du Temps--a soft peppery gardenia--totally singular--very attractive to men
    Coeur-Joie--a soft peppery carnation rose floral with musk
    Farouche--a soft, dreamy, romantic aldehydic abstract
    Capricci--a kind of "Joy" that's softer and more powdery
    Fille d'Eve--the odd one out--probably the least "ricci-esque" of all of them--a kind of chypre but very original and even somewhat shocking: It's a Germaine Cellier comp: all of her perfumes were slightly bizarre.

    Oh! Dear! So, I answered your question on MY profile page......I am hungover! PS: #160 Bal de Mai is merely an healthy lip colour: Like childrens lips--and the finish is neither matte nor shiny: It's utterly butterly and it tastes good too because I like to taste it on some very special lips! (plus, because it's a natural lip colour, if I get it on my lips, you can't tell) #161 is a touch deeper, but is also a natural lip colour. Everyone I know who i have recommended these to now has thrown away all their chanels and ysl's & armanis: Apparently, nothing else makes your lips "behave" like this. I wish they made clear balm because then I'd use it. Already, I feel my lips have too much colour naturally....without my beard I look like the Joker. It's scary.

    Hello there, Fleurine! I bought a couple of samples of the current formulation called "L'Original" from ebay. It's edt, I believe. It's pleasant, but not what I recall from the 1980s when I last wore it (a long time ago!). This new version reminds me of baby oil at first, not bad, but you know...just baby oil. It got better with time on skin, but didn't seem as rich and honeyed as I recall -- if I am not imagining things, as I said it's been a long time. I had both the parfum and edt back then. I haven't tried the current parfum, it might still be nice. If I were you, I'd order samples first before making an online purchase. It's easy to find on ebay. And I would think you could get samples on the perfumed court, whatever it's called, or one of those places. I like perfumed court. Hope this helps!

    It is amazing how much less cool James Dean looks with those glasses! I haven't seen Giant, but I really should. It was filmed in one of my favorite parts of Texas - the area around Big Bend. The production basically took over the town of Marfa, which I think probably has more tumbleweeds than people.
  9. My favorite part of that photo is the coffee cup, that makes it feel like NYC to me.

    Fleurine - where the blazes did you dig that up, and what is it?! Liz Taylor on the set of National Velvet? If so, California, I guess (or maybe Kentucky?). She seems too old in the pic though ...

    Anyway, because you've reactivated my Audrey Hepburn obsession, and I imagine you walking around Manhattan looking fabulous ...

the vintage dream perfume arrived....

by Fleurine on 5th November 2015 at 08:22 PM
This post from 2008, by seattlelight, sort of sums up my feelings towards this scent as well...

The top was on the bottle fairly tight - I presume from the seller taking precautions about spillage. I opened the bottle immediately last night

Yesterday evening, returning home after running errands, I received the package. Placed in a styrofoam peanuts filled box, I find a bubble wrapped square. The bubble wrap comes

The Scent Crush

by Fleurine on 2nd November 2015 at 05:49 PM
This was a scent I would (most likely) never have chosen on my own. Too rare. Too obscure. Even I would probably not have run across It left to my own devices. Still, a classic vintage from a classic house...a dainty light green chypre with citrus, iris and mimosa, over a simple yet classic ambery base. Sheer at first, but with some backbone. A fine upstanding *young lady's* scent ...The air of a morning stroll along Madison Ave, in Mid march 1965, wearing a matching ivory skirt suit and gloves.

That One Green Chypre

by Fleurine on 31st December 2013 at 08:12 PM
When I first came to BN, I really didn't care for them. The Chypres. The mossiness was sort of a dealbreaker for me. Just too old lady. But as I collected vintage bottles, interspersed with occasional trips to retail establishments, I began to notice when the restricted ingredients weren't there, and I missed moss and clove and everything else. In spite of myself, I started appreciating and even liking the retro chypres. Vintage Chantilly, vintage 1000, Arpege, and

August and Everything After...

by Fleurine on 11th August 2012 at 04:57 PM

The end of the summer drenches me with longing and nostalgia every year. The saying goodbye to a summer crush when you both have to go back to different schools in September. Packing up the summer clothes, and pulling out the warm ones. The days growing shorter with school pressures and anxieties mounting. The first cold breeze in late August.
My summer scents for this time of year, are, this year:
