    Default Three little packages....

    After having my 'flu jab I returned home to three little packages
    and couldn't wait to open them! I made a cup of tea and sat down to
    indulge myself.

    The first package was from Sylvaine Delacourte and contained samples of
    her Collection Vanille and Muscs (five 2ml samples in each box.)
    The presentation was superb and I think this is such a clever way of marketing
    the scents as it allows you to try them at home and decide whether they suit or not.
    They also include a special code to enable one to get money off the first order.
    When I have had time to test them all I will report back.

    The second package contained a 5ml decant of Ambre et Vanille by E. Coudray.
    This is an old favourite that I love to wear during the Christmas period. I just
    sprayed some on and it smells as good as always. It came in a gold spray canister
    in a lovely pink bag with ribbon ties.

    The final package contained a 5ml decant of Boucheron's Jaipur.

    I feel all set up for the festive season now and can't wait to wear some of these gems
    at various events. The entire haul cost less than £25.

    Sometimes the best things do come in small packages.

    You are obviously an exception to that rule, Jon!

    Congratulations Kewart, they sound lovely! (I’ve been eyeing a bit of Jaipur myself lately.)

    Glad and happy for the recovery, but no less about a such impressive haul-more than a fair price, even at exceptional price quality/value for money rates for a wonderful selection of impressive basic fragrance mainstays

    Ok, so I have just come out of my 'flu jab bubble - it made
    me quite ill for 24 hours - so my nose may not yet be at it's
    best. Bearing this in mind, I am testing Lilylang by Sylvaine Delacourte
    (the nose is Irene Farmachidi actually) and am finding it a very soft, creamy
    solar floral number with musc (obviously), no lily at all but jasmine, tuberose and
    ylang ylang brightened by some citric notes and peppercorns.

    The name is slightly odd, given that there is no lily in the notes! It is very feminine and
    more of a bedtime, intinate scent than one I would wear outside. I would say that it doesn't
    have much sillage but would perhaps make people think it was just your natural skin smell that
    they are picking up. It's beautifully blended and clean-smelling but not that original.

    It's not something I would pay full price for that's for sure.
