Annayake - Miyako.

Base notes : Musk, Rockrose, Benzoin, Myrrh, Amber
Whenever I smell it, I can't help but think of the Far East. Beautiful, evocative, meditative and totally unique.
I'm very surprised that this isn't talked about on the board at all... especially by you beautiful ladies, since it is marketed to women. (I think of it as unisex. Seems to work well on me, according to others.)
There isn't even a listing for it in the directory.
As a limited edition not available in the US, it's almost impossible to find a bottle now. I'm clinging onto my bottle for dear life!
Germain Monteil - L'Eau de Monteil

Middle Notes: Lavender, Jasmine, Rose, Carnation, Lily of the valley,
Base Notes: Cedar, Tonka, Musk, Sandalwood
This is a favorite I like to smell on women. It is simply gorgeous!
This is the olfactory equivalent of a crystal clear ornamental pond filled with lily pads and lotus flowers, lined with weeping willows and pastel colored flowers surrounding it's edges...painted by Monet.
I bought this as a Mother's Day gift for my mother back in the 90's. I've never smelled it on anyone else besides her. I've never seen this mentioned here or any other message boards. It's listed in the directory, but there are no reviews for it.
I would love to know who the perfumer is.
