    Hi Furrypine, is this still available? I would love to try this, :smiley: I'm in the UK.
  4. Re: Vintage Parfum Chypre Bernard Lalande Paris, any info on this house?

    I really like this concept and love the smell of wood smoke. This sounds intriguing - I'd love to see/smell how smoke and a pleasing chill moving to warmth are interpreted.
