I'm in a big soft cloud of Shalimar Parfum Initial
for the afternoon.

away. About Christmas Eve, I didn't even hope that any restaurant offering a Réveillon menu would be open so late. I was just hoping something would be open for a drink and a bite. Thank you so much again! It is very good of you to go to the trouble and I am grateful
Okay, good to know - I'm sure that'll give us lots more options!

, representing Loulou! You know, I tried it again the other day after seeing your comments on the Loulou thread, and I think you're right: the old formula is not really brash. More sultry in an introverted way. Interesting how adjectives that get repeated about a fragrance seem to stick, even when they don't totally fit.
Thanks, and thanks for saying so! I'm a firm believer that it's generally not the perfume that's too strong, loud or brash, anyway - the heavy hand of the wearer is usually to blame. This is how perfectly nice perfumes get bad reputations ...Poison
somehow managed to recover from it, but poor Giorgio
was forever ruined by one too many suffocating, inelegant and over-zealous applications.

Yummy! Well, we didn't have quite as many as y'all so I went with the cobbler (which is, I think, rather the same thing as a crumble) and saved enough for some blackberry liqueur, or "bounce" as we call it. I'm giving what Tony's dubbed "liquid preserves" as Christmas gifts this year - I have homemade Limoncello, Peach and Satsuma "Brandy", Cherry Bounce and now Blackberry Bounce to add to the colorful array steeping in the hall closet!
