    Great blog, Dmitri - I always enjoy dropping in and particularly enjoyed the vintage Guerlain series a while back - congrats and thanks. Not much in the way of vintage bottles here in HK, I'm afraid, but if I do come across anything of interest you'll be the first to know

    As usual a very enjoyable read! There must have been a note on the article that mentions that those are ideas of the "western world", as in other regions of the globe scents of flowers were mostly used by men (ex. roses in the middle east, and so on).

    Nothing is forever so we may still see even more changes in the future, the 90s were sure a huge step towards scent-equality!

    cheers and i am eagerly awaiting your next Vintage post...

    Indeed, I should have noted that this is an insight into the western world.
