    Performance for me was good, it's not a bold scent by any means but it can hold its ground.

    Heliotrope has a sweet aroma think almonds. It also has a vanilla base which makes it quite addicting. I would say it's a powdery oriental floral. I think it's a good fit for me. Is this something you would be open to smelling?

Or, perhaps, when the weather is cold. I love twinkly aldehydes, during the glittery season of the winter holidays.
    Like Guerlain, Chanel has a lot of rare obscure bottles. Unfortunately they are far more harder to find than Guerlain. I have small decant of Chanel No 46. Have you heard of that one? It has some similarities to No 22.

    Awaiting delivery of Aramis Calligraphy Rose. Zealot Crusader’s take sold me on testing it out. I think I know who is getting the bottle if it doesn’t work out for me.

    Well today I re-purchased Kenzo Flower and Mugler Aura. Both of these I had originally purchased in late August from FragranceX, but the package got lost once it got into Canada. Unfortunately, FragranceX is using a private shipping company in Canada that doesn't have a great reputation, so I may avoid purchasing from them for a while. Got a refund and purchased these items from FragranceBuy instead.

    Also purchased 8 small decants on eBay. The last thing I need is more decants, however there are a lot of Canadian sellers on eBay selling 5ml decants for really reasonable prices so I haven't been able to resist. I am considering them large samples

    I haven't tried the EDP but the EDT is pretty potent. I decided to err on the side of caution and just apply lightly which seems to work beautifully

    I would love to smell any vintage Guerlain.

    I have seen No 46 mentioned on some perfume websites, but the only information they have, is that is long gone. I adore No. 22, so much that I have just bought the pure parfum, and a bottle of No. 18 Eau de Parfum. Coming straight from Chanel dot com .
