    How beautiful. But do try to keep it out of sunlight, the sun is the enemy. But still it looks so lovely in a spring setting.

    Thank-you. Don't worry about the light. It was twilight when I shot those. I used my LED close-up flash which gives a low light fill-flash.

    The bad thing is, I just got this bottle & I have not been able to open it yet. I've put (silicon spray) oil on it & left it upside down for two days but it is really tight. I still don't know what Narcise Noir smells like!

    The update, I got this open with Brielle's help!
    I used alcohol on a cotton pad to break the seal & lubricate. I gently agitated the top. (Not much! It was frozen.) Finally it turned!

    Glorious Neroli similar to Profumum Neroli just really close if you have ever smelled that. But that has myrrh in the base, and Narcisse Noir has civet & sandalwood in it's base which gives it a bit more wood and tiny bit more darkness. I've never tried the current EDT so I can't compare them. This is deep and just so close to Profumum Neroli it's spooky!

    Is that Caron's Narcisse Noir? Must be vintage since I don't recognize the bottle. I have 1/3 of Narcisse Noir (Caron) that I'd like to say good bye to if anyone wants to trade it for something.

    Both the bottle and the overall setting are great.

    Thanks, you guys! I'm glad you like the pictures. I had fun making them. The garden was so beautiful this year. After working so hard planting everything & then having a stroke of luck & finding that bottle, it felt like a magical moment to me. I'm happy you got to see it & found it amusing.
