    I was so intrigued, I thought and thought and sniffed and sniffed and then finally cheated!!!!!!

    So I will not say what I found, because I want to give more honorable players a chance to to play, but good one, Veuve!!!!

    Hint time!

    This venerable house straddles the niche/designer gap, I think. It's neither, really.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    uhm... peach, oakmoss and vetiver with bergamot opening and vanilla trail in the end sounds like a Guerlain classic chypre or better THE chypre: I'd say Mitsouko. Plus Guerlain fits the bill also about the house hint being borderline to niche with its exclusive releases.

    It does sound like Mitsouko, but it isn't!
    Another hint:
    The original bottle was by Lalique.

    It is the Lady of Havana, originally formulated to scent cigarettes-- Habanita! She is on my wish list. I have been watching her on ebay. I, stupidly, passed up an empty vintage Lalique bottle a few weeks ago and have been searching ever since.

    I thought of Guerlain right away, and then of Mitsouko too--except for the patchouli....it just didn't fit... so then I cheated...and I will say no more...

    From the notes it sounds like a classic lady's scent with big fruity opening, dense floral heart and a musky-powdery oriental drydown in the vein of Rochas Femme...

    I'm not sure if the frag is considered a classic but, the house is definitely a classic.


    Ps Sorry for slow response. I was away all day yesterday.

    Please do, as no one else seems to be interested. Perhaps it is something that you would like.

    OK My first guess, based on hints you gave and the notes listed is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.

    That is a beauty that I would love to add to my collection, but that is not it.

    Here is Coco Mademoiselle:
    Orange, Bergamot, Grapefruit.Litchi, Rose, Italian Jasmine.Indonesian Patchouli, Haitian Vetiver, Bourbon Vanilla, White Musk.

    Here is my lady.
    Peach, Plum, Cassie, Tagete, Green notes, Coriander, Ylang-Ylang, Rose, Tuberose, Jasmin, Heliotrope, Orris, Carnation ,Cedar, Vetiver, Musk, Tonka Bean, Amber, Vanilla, Civet.
    Like Coco she is a mademoiselle fragrance in her house and not madame.

    Gotta pick up DH at O'Hare and have dinner so I won't be back until late. Keep guessing, you seem to be very close...

    OK analavande! My second guess is...

    YSL Elle

    Asha, you are still on the right track. YSL Elle is not our mademoiselle. Think of a smaller house.

    I'm out the door now. I will check back with you much later. Good guessing.

    Hmm. I am groping now...lol.

    Would love if it were Miss Balmain, but perhaps that is really a classic, which you said it is not

    This mademoiselle is more contemporary with respect to her release. She is less than 20 years old.

    Groping some more...Annick Goutal Petite Cherie. AG is a smallish house, and Petite Cherie is probably within 20 years.

    I'm running out of ideas!

    Good morning! Okay Asha and Aiona. Here is a hint that I think will give this away.
    This fragrance is the little sister of a leather diva that turned 50 years old this year.

    I really don't know, lol!

    My only guess with the new clue would be Hermes Kelly Caleche...but I think Hermes is such a big house, I don't think it is right.

    Hooray! I would not have had a clue but for socalwoman's hint (thanks!). It sounds like an interesting fragrance. I'm sure that the smaller sample will be plenty for me. Looking forward, and thank you, analavande!
