It's so unfortunate when this happens, but then again... it leaves an opportunity for buried treasure to be unearthed some decades later. Of course, assuming it was cared for. I imagine a lot of vintage fragrances end up deteriorated due to poor storage conditions.
    Oh I definitely sampled it back then. It went away before I got a chance to buy a bottle and until your mention of it in this thread, I had completely forgot about it. That said, one look at that bottle and the memories all came pouring back. I'll now have to seek out the bottle I overlooked all those years ago.

    Nice pickup! I hate shopping downtown. I'll stick with the burbs where my money is at least wanted and appreciated. Shops on Michigan Ave. for the most part are pure snobbery at its finest and yes this is a complete generalization. Some places are great...but that's just the general vibe I get...the whole...I DGAF if we get your piddly $200...$300. Ridiculous. Ok, ok done w/ my rant. I'm going to be in the city this weekend, might have to go snag that Vetiver or Mitzah.

    I seriously don't think this is ever going to happen, we might stay frozen forever. Complete and total l ice age. The ONLY good reason about this ridiculously cold winter is that I get to wear some of my heavier stuff longer.

    That's about the only thing I envy you guys in the snow country... Our winters are a chilly 70-80F degree days, and don't last more than a month, hardly long enough to pull out some of my favorite winter bottles. :-(

    At this point, even THAT may be an understatement.

    Taste of Fragrance tomorrow, at least that will make me feel warm.

    Interesting with the bottle cap. It looks like a revival of an older design they used, most prominently for the Verte d'Orange line. I recently saw a bottle of "Bel Ami" with this cap shape, versus the other more recent modernized one that is used across the Hermessence line, thinking it was an interim shape after the martini shaker.

    Deep breath...drumroll...Invasion Barbare, non-bust 75 ML edition! I think I'll use this one a lot. Also ordered a bunch of free samples from luckyscent with my order. I made $320 from selling so I had the cash to make this (for me) extravagant purchase.
