    I didn't try the Le Labo one, wasn't drawn to it, don't know why...but probaby will eventually.

    rowan, that is so kind and generous from you!! Thank you so much!
  92. Re: Shalimar Ode a la Vanille sur la route de (du?) Mexique

  93. Re: Shalimar Ode a la Vanille sur la route de (du?) Mexique

    P.S. PerfumedLady, I have a sample of Mona di Orio Vanille and I don't like it at all. I don't get anything of the lovely vanilla that people mention in their reviews. I get a strong herbal and green...
