    After realizing how much Rick has enjoyed sampling off my Guerlain shelf, in particular the L'art et la Matière line, I bought us a bottle of Tonka Impériale. It showed up today, addressed to him. It’s fun to watch someone I love enjoy unboxing that full presentation - probably more than doing it myself.

    Tonka Imperiale is a great gourmand from Guerlain. Hope both of you enjoy it

    The star shaped bottle is beautiful. Do you wear Angel, in any version? I have a few stars in different sizes and also the ice blue one. Right now it's not possible to get the bottles refilled in the stores and seeing a good deal on this 100 ml I went for it. Angel has been in my "permanent" collection since it first came out and running out is not an option.

    I love your Angel story (how you've worn it over the years)! I do not wear Angel, but have contemplated getting Angel Muse a few times. Currently I have a few samples of Angel EdP, I might spritz on my wrist and see how I like it on myself. I have tried it many times at stores over the years, and it's definitely something I'd recommend to others (women, generally speaking).

    Hednic, what unusual bottles. The caps bring to mind the Guggenheim Museum! Looking forward to your impressions of the scents.

    Angel muse is another favourite, also in the permanent collection. Maybe a little easier to wear than Angel and more toward neutral on the gender spectrum. Highly recommended.
