    Lessa, it's very fruity, bright and uplifting! Just like the cuteness of the bottle that Mimi G mentioned.

    The downside is that my nose detects the benzoin note very early in the opening, so...

    It may have been discontinued because it treads the dreaded line between floral and fruity. I tried very hard to find another one like this on eBay and elsewhere, but came up empty-handed.

    Must not be many bottles of the parfum concentration floating around...

    And the best part is that this deal only cost me $25.99 including shipping!

    Reporting back on the Ineke After My Own Heart purchase from E-bay. Absolutely lovely, wearable lilac. I love lilac but it usually doesn't play well with other scents and as a soliflor just sits there- as some have noted- it can be boring on your skin. This is the whole dang lilac bush in a spring breeze. Couldn't be happier.

    Also received in mail today:
    Partial bottle Alien. My first Mugler.
    And a blind buy of Daliflor Love the bottle, will test juice later

    I made an ebay purchase of Emeraude edt, a partial bottle that looks like this.

    It's hard to get info on dating these bottles. There are so many variations. I think the one I bought is 1960s - 1970s. We'll see whether it's any good. If I like it I may look for more.

    Thought I would join you intrepid ebayers! I bought a one ounce bottle of Niki de Saint Phalle parfum! It was 39.00 and was a steal for the parfum version. Great scent and often available for very little. The bottles themselves are small works of art.

    Miss Dior is a great fave of mine and I hope you love it, bookwyrmsmith, and you can't go wrong with Jil Sander #4, it's just beautiful! Enjoy.

    I received my Emeraude pdt today. I think I'm going to be very pleased (I need to try it on its own, not over today's Obsession), except those tangy very top notes are no longer there.

    I bought a Coty L'Aimant Flacon Mist, too, and I'm looking forward to trying that when it arrives. I'm not sure of the vintage, maybe 70s. I can't tell you how I'm reveling in these vintage reekers lately. I know what will happen soon. I will wake up and say "what happened to me?", and the vintage reekers will go on the shelf with the others.
