    [QUOTE=RoRo;4669636I do hope you'll post some pics. Is it a 7ml like mine?
    No.19 is intense, and I see how it could read as aloof, cold, even cruel. For some reason, it comes off as fiery and sensual to me.

    You can't go wrong with the EDC. The EDP seems to have fewer fans (at least here), but from what I remember it's pretty darn good .[/QUOTE]

    IMG_9336.jpg Here you are - a 14ml. I won't give up on her yet!

I got two versions, one a jasmine/sandalwood monster with a civet laughing in the background, and this, a caramel comfort scent like no other. I'd wear it every day happily
    That's a lovely vintage bottle of L'Aimant, Couronne de Violette. The boxes, caps, and labels on the older vintage Cotys are so delightful. And L'Aimant was a beloved perfume for decades for a reason, right? (And it is not a No. 5 knock off...)

    When you get a chance, post some thoughts on L'Aimant in the Vintage Coty thread, over here...

    That looks great. I hope it grows on you.

    It could well be from the tail end of the 1970s. That seems to have been a transitional period for Chanel packaging. Based on what I see here, I'd say late '70s, possibly very early '80s.

    Wow--how incredible!

    Well, it was a very NICE house. An old mansion in the middle of nowhere. I took pictures of them, but on a phone that is long gone.
