Hi Vic,

SL A La Nuit for me today.

Will you be reviewing the Montale? The word Vanilla has gotten my attention. :)

Hi Miss Vic, it's Laura Biagiotti Roma for me today. I love the sparkling, bright opening, the warm, sweet ambery drydown.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Victoria!

I'm wearing Giorgio parfum.It's so very nostalgic but in a good way for me!

Hello Victoria...Fracas today. :)

Victoria said...

Hi Dawn, yes I plan to do a Chypre Vanille review soon. :O)

Victoria said...

Hi Terry, I haven't tried that one, but I'm a sucker for an amber drydown. Sounds very nice!

Victoria said...

Oh Christina, now I could go for a hit of nostalgia in parfum form, wow that sounds lovely!

Victoria said...

Hi Greeneyes, oy, Fracas and I do not agree. I like my tuberose ummm well ... less tuberosey. I find it quite lovely and captivating on others though. Maybe someday. Maybe in Parfum?

Hello, Ms. V.-

I'll bet you smell like a million bucks...

I'm wafting Lys Mediterranee all over the place today- a bit "in your face" with its sensuality, but I claim it as one of the priveleges of middle age...

Tell me, fair one, ought I to blow big bucks on the Chypre/Vanille?

I do so love both genres of fragrance...

Victoria said...

Well Chaya, if you also love soapy, I would say go for the Chypre. But do try to find it in the smaller size.

Oh, V-
I went on a sniffing rampage today, and wanted to give you a heads-up...

I rarely go gaga over new fragrances-but two words suffice:

CUIR AMETHYSTE

Oh, dear God.
Worth the price tag.

I begged Sak's to send it from NYC [they only had a tiny tester, which I must have pretty much depleted], which they do FREE OF CHARGE...no shipping fee.

Violets, wood, leather, and other notes [I'll break the code, eventually...].

I had an instant attack of the vapors! So will you!

And a consummate lavender I've never smelled before- CARON- IMPACT for men[hah!]

Very, very subtly, there is a tinge of heliotrope, and I'm smelling the teeniest footfalls of amber in the drydown- and WHAT a drydown!!! Not to be believed- leaves others in the dust.

P.S. I'm so happy I could share the info with you- you're so generous with all your information.

NOW I feel like a REAL sister...

Victoria said...

Hi Chaya, so you are saying that SAKS in NYC has the Cuir Amethyst?
I have been looking all over for it. I have looked and have had friends looking in FIVE countries!!!

chaya ruchama said...

YES!

But the Caron is available in Harvard Sq.- Colonial Drugs... ask for Cathy Bottindari. Phone # is 617-864-2222. They ship everywhere, and she'll send samples, if you like...

Ciao...

Thanks!
