Yesterday got in a vintage Habit Rouge in the red leather bottle... it is SOOOOOO yummy, like the new formulation in many ways but much deeper! And the lot of 3 Chanel No. 19 miniatures (I'm still awaiting the bigger FB for decant sample promises to folks... don't actually know if the 19 is vintage or new but it's EDP.
And... sort of off topic but not really... The birthday gifting from my sweetheart (dear boy!) continued yesterday, this was my MOST special ever birthday (sweeties everywhere can probably take notes on this!)... on Friday afternoon I received 18 multicolored and fragrant roses...before my sweetie's arrival. Then yesterday he brought out the first book gift, Chandler Burr's The Perfect Scent. A dinner out after a day of gardening at a local coffeehouse/bistro; followed by a gift of "The Chemistry of Fragrances: From Perfumer to Consumer" and an hour later, "The art of perfumery and the methods of obtaining the odours of plants; with instructions for the manufacture of ... dentifrices, pomatums, cosmetiques, perfumed soap, etc... "by G.W. Septimus Piesse ... (a Uni of Michigan historic reprint)... and the last gift just before the evening ended, "Perfume: Joy, Obsession, Scandal, Sin" by Richard Stamelman... which has some GORGEOUS photos of perfume bottles and is subtitled "A Cultural History of Fragrance from 1750 to the Present"... So, for a weekend without scent, it was a weekend FULL of scent!
