    Thank you so much for the friendship invitation, and what a lovely morning to receive it... I sit here looking out the window at our first real snow of the year, and watching the busy birds at the feeders. I have been meaning to tell you much very much I enjoyed your posts and photos on " the thread" ...and will say once again, thank you!

    Fleurine - thanks for accepting my friend request! I love that photo you posted on MdM's profile page - it somehow captures the feel of Paris perfectly. Is that Audrey Hepburn?

    Did someone say.....Royal Bain de Champagne?????
    Ah, one of my first Caron loves purchased at Casswell-Massey NYC in 1970's. I loved it, & still do, but when I'd wear it, men would want to buy some for their wives- heck, not the effect I was seeking. LOL.

    Fleurine! Paris is nowhere, and New York is Hell--let's blow this town, and go in for the kill: You think we might? You think we could? Me I know it, I know that we will!

    Hey Fleurine, scent twin. A delayed reply re Loulou... you were so right about the hay! I hadn't figured it out until you mentioned it, but there it is, 40ft tall and sooo inviting. Besides that, it's the jasmine that predominates up top for me, and the sandalwood in the base. So, hay and jasmine are two of my ultimate favourite notes and I now get why Loulou appeals to me How is she getting along with you?

The World Stockpile of Patou 1000

by Fleurine on 6th January 2017 at 06:15 PM

Well, I'm wearing it today. Madame Mille. It comes as a huge relief since I have been hoarding it for several years and I have more than just the above stash to show for it. I bought a 2 oz bottle that popped up on Ebay because a certain someone, namely Le Mouchoir de Monsieur insisted that it was an "important" bottle...whatever that means....I have a vast stash of the Eaux as well, de Toilette, de Parfum, the works. . It is the scent that Le

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

The overwhelming majority of people said "absolutely yes".

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 06:49 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 09:12 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
