Well, Folks, I bought the wrong dingdangdong perfume.
It came in the mail yesterday, and I realized my mistake ...only after spraying myself down with zeal.
I had been really excited to finally buy a bottle of the lush, Oriental chypre from HdP dedicated to the memory of "Mata Hari". And in my usual, brash "aplomb", 1873 being the number I presumed the correct attribution, I bought a bottle -- eagerly and without reservation... or the wisdom to actually investigate which scent glorified which 'figure' from history. (1876 was the ultra-feminine, luxe perfume I sought... 1873 being an almost masculine, astringent grapefruit fougere, resting on a bed of vintage Miss Dior.) (And I paid full-price.)
With all my heart, I assure you 1873 (dedicated to the memory of "Collette"), is a very refined and very memorable fragrance. I wouldn't hesitate to seek it myself someday, but it's not what I wanted on this day.
And I am willing swallow a considerable financial loss, and roll back out and try to buy that 1876 once more ! Both to appease my shame and longing.
So, I offer you, friends:
HISTOIRES DE PARFUMS 1873 "Collette"
120ml. edp. NIB (Well, okay, I used it once [see above]).
Original 2009 formulation! bought in 2009 at Harrod's Knightsbridge.
100ml bottle. 35-37.5 % full: juice covers lower spires on medallion. Boxed.

100ml. NIB. Very hard to find in this size, concentration and condition. Smells like the original Coco, but better. Elegant juice. A perfect gift.
Jean Patou. Vintage. Very Hard to Find.

This would make a good gift!

I am bumping this sucker. Due to so many requests.
(Well, maybe not "so" many, I guess.)
