    Hi Jillsy,

    Hope it's okay to send you a PM. Am I right in thinking that you were the one who recently did a surprise 180 on civet thanks to Bal a Versailles? Only Taolady just sent me a sample of it in the spirit of scientific inquiry, as she wanted to see if anything could persuade me that civet was not utterly irredeemable. I have now tried BaV and must confess to a minor civet epiphany, which I do not admit to lightly, given my screen name. I have to concede that the civet here is "sweetly orchestrated", by which I mean both cunningly and sweetly. It is a warm skanky hum in the background, lending an almost majestic quality to the perfume, albeit in a very grown up and old fashioned sort of way. You would have to be middle aged and up to wear this, I fancy, which as luck would have it, I am! I actually sprayed this liberally on my person and went out to work wearing it! People shook my hand warmly and even said they hoped to see me again, so clearly my sillage cannot have been too repellent. It has been a revelation to me, I must say. I wonder if what may have helped is that every other note is amongst my faves - jasmine, rose, iris, sandalwood, amber etc - I can't recall exactly, but whatever is in it other than civet, I like a lot!

    Then today I tried L'Ombre Fauve, which has a dirty quality too, but in a different way - have no idea what is in that. And blow me, but I liked that too. And its name means "bestial shadow", haha!

    Would be curious to learn what you still dislike that contains civet, and whether you have made other happy discoveries beyond BaV.

    Best wishes

    Vanessa aka VM
