    Had a mini of 8e jour by Yves Rocher arrive today smells similar to YSL Nu minus the big floral opening and not as heavy with the tangy vetiver. 8e jour is unfortunately discontinued though.I wore this as my SOTD.

    Me neither! I wanted to send Mr. G a small vial of the LHB for his assessment of the quality of it, but unfortunately, the stopper is frozen.

    Brilliant photos!

    Being something of a novice, I haven't yet ventured onto Ebay - and all of my stuff so far is shop bought. Until now. I ordered bottles of Arpege and Violet Angel from 'Cheap Smells' and (tragedy!) when they arrived, both bottles were duff!!!

    The lovely Arpege bottle was all scratched up and the Violet Angel lid was jammed! I was gutted! However, the lady in customer services was lovely and really helpful and I now have the replacements for both, which arrived (from Guernsey I think) just three days later. Aaaaaaaaah. Happy now.

    I can emphatise with your unhappiness. Luckily, only one of 26 shipments thus far was totally ruined.The rest were fine and became the source of great delight.

    Domperrier- Oh I love love the bottles *sigh* - i especially love the cute 7.5 ml bottle- my favorite ...it's so dinky.
    The huge L'Heure Bleue bottle- is it 4.5 oz ? The shoulders are more 'sloping' so to speak . In fact it is subtly different - the inverted heart stopper is smaller - from the full L'Heure Bleue bottle of the same size, next to it. Very interesting- I wonder what year or decade it's from .
    Dimitri- I love the modern green Vetiver bottle and the Habit Rouge bottle too. Great stuff. I have never seen them before so thanks for the viewing !

    How I wish! It's 2 oz only unfortunately...but it certainly feels much bigger & heavier than that!

    I was pleasantly surprised at the heft of it!

    Yes, the empty bottle is slightly shorter than the filled one, and the heart stopper is slightly smaller like you say.

    Looks like both are from the 70s, judging by the labels on the bottom & the colour of the slivers of perfume stains inside the empty one.

    The vintage Guerlain bottles do fascinate me ,Domperrier.Can you imagine the heft of a 4.2 oz bottle !

    DH is an angel. I bought some Carnal Flower yesterday and now DH tells me ,he secretly went online to Barney's and ordered me another 50 ml bottle ! He said he asked for gift wrap and a love message as well . I don't know what to say. I love Carnal Flower and now I have enough for a year or 3 !

    I sure did! It's my favourite perfume house so... Why not spend when you can afford? But I'm pretty nervous of what people might think if they spot the no. 5 in my collection. lol But, it worked for me and many girls thought it was a unisex. So, what the heck! Even if one dont wear the no. 5 one got to have it in the collection anyway.
