    Lovely flacons , domperrier- another great vintage find ! I do like the older Dior flacons- they were so elegant.

    I have been naughty and recently bought Amouage Jubilation 25 too . I love Amouage - great quality and Amouage seems to do very well on my skin . Jubilation 25 is one I have lemmed for years but never got around to buying. For my 40th birthday coming up end of this year, I thought I had better rectify that situation before I go on my travels. 40th = Jubilation !

    Thanks!

    Mimi, I agree that Amouage is one of the few brands that still produces quality fragrances with character.

    If only they sold them in my country. Unobtainable from evilBay also so I guess I have to do without them...

    Dom - you can get Amouage on Ebay albeit out of your country but still they can ship to you ! Maybe you can buy direct from Amouage in Hong Kong.

    Well I bought a bottle of the new Herve Leger Femme for Avon. It arrived yesterday and what a wonderful surprise. Its lovely, warm spicy woody and as good as any high end department store fragrance. The perfumer is Calice Becker so good nose created it. You got a free gift with the bottle, 12ml purse spray plus the shower gel and body lotion.

    If you have an Avon lady do try to get a sample.

    You certainly have been stocking up on it, so maybe you could!
    Not that I blame you, it's fabulous! It might actually be my favourite Dior...

    I have, yes!

    You know what? I just found a vintage parfum at a flea market this summer,
    I hadn't smelled it before, but it was love at first sniff.
    It's known buy most ppl, that I am a sucker for sweet and cloying frags, so,
    it's actually kinda strange, that I love this mossy green concoction as much
    as I do, but damn it's good. A serious competitor to Poison as my fave Dior!

    What beauties!

    How's the LHB EDT? I have tried the '80s version, and it's very unlike the warm and inviting extrait....a little clinical, and ummm...reptilian.

    I've recently started wearing L'Artisan Vanilia again and was reminded why I love this and feeling sad over it's discontinuation. And although I have a full 50ml bottle, it pains me a little each time I wear this and use a little bit up. So today I stopped by the store where I had purchased my current bottle 6 months ago. They still had one 50ml bottle left! And they had a 100ml tester that was about 80% full. I bought both of them! I'm so happy. I feel like I have enough Vanilia now to last me a long, long time

    After a little bit of snooping around, I learned that the Shalimar presentation at the top above is indeed a parfum extrait... the only version of Shalimar parfum being bottled in the bouchon coeur flacon in recent times. For the Xmas 2008 season, it was also released as a 50ml EDT spray. So anyway, I bought it. Its still en route, so unfortunately, no glamourous pics yet.

    I believe these are from the 80s, no?!
    Reptilian? Hahaha, I dunno.
    They are as L'Heure Bleue is suppose to be.
    I haven't tryed many formulations, so I
    cannot tell you 'how they are', besides

    Today I was delighted to receive my Guerlain Derby Aftershaves (one a 100ml spray and one a 50ml splash). I have been keen to test them agains the EDT in terms of their persistence. My supplier was very kind to have also sent me a couple of EDT minis

    Unfortunately I may have to wait until my head cold has subsided before I can smell the A/S properly. My nose is working at about 80% right now.
    Are there any other basenoters that have used the A/S and the EDT enough to comment on their similarities/differences?

    I know Kevin... and I know it looks terribly vulgar... I have it coming out the wazoo! But I've not enjoyed a scent this much since LPNo9, and some here may recall the panic-buys I made when it was announced as discontinued. Fortunately I still have several in reserve.
    With regard to the Derby, I have found an excellent supplier who is selling at weelllll below market price. It would be foolish not to stock up, wouldn't it? Sometimes I kind of cringe at my own posts too.

    Cool collection, Dimi, but I can't stand the AS flacons,
    they are butt ugly, being Guerlain and all.
    That house usually have some gorgeous flacons!

    Heck, I didn't design 'em Ducky, I only wear 'em!
    BTW, the A/S flacon is the same as the EDT flacon with the exception of the colour of the name printed on the front. The tall rectangular bottle is the flacon used when the "eagle" bottle went out of production.
