Very well put, ExtremeK and Quarry!
I may kill a bottle of red on behalf of Mardi Grumps ^^
Also as consolation... we got 5-6 inches of snow and expect more than that overnight and tomorrow. Last time in January we ended up with half a metre, which is very unusual for my rather dry area. *deep sigh*
Kiliwia, I am glad you found a reasonably priced sample of Vega. I am sorry I can't help with decants as the postage has risen to 20 Euros for anything but a thin letter... I have never had anything but the re-issued Vega, but online consensus seems to be it is very faithful. I rather back-up the fantastic re-issued Vega (which wears like an EdP according to Guerlain standards today) instead of spending a fortune for an old bottle. I have no idea how well Vega ages in general. I don't think Guerlain will be able to produce Vega in the future with regarding to the newer restrictions on florals. If you are fine with ebay there seems to be a reasonably priced bottle for sale. The Paris retail price (price increase by February due) was 225 Euros for 125 ml. This one I'd definitely recommend to spray instead of splash and get some on fabric as well! Delish!
Al Oudh for tonight I think.
