    Re: Women under 35 and classic perfumes

    Re: Women under 35 and classic perfumes

    Wow. I'm very glad to hear that there is still a lot of younger women who enjoy these classics. The reason I asked is because I just received small vials of Guerlain's vintage Rue de la Paix and...

    Women under 35 and classic perfumes

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm wondering how many women under 35 enjoy wearing very classic, powdery, rich perfumes. I mean things like a vintage version of Shalimar, L'Heure Bleue, Le Dix, No. 5, etc. If so...

    Re: Bois du Portugal....is it too early??

    Do it! I'm a 28 year old male and I've gotten away with wearing Guerlain L'heure Bleue and Mitsouko. Yes, two very old women's fragrances. But then again, I'm very daring when it comes to wearing...

    I guess it depends on how you define luxury. There are two definitions for it:
