Despite my one bottle a month rule, I could not withstand the temptation I unsuspectingly ran into last week. A perfume store in Vienna, one I had passed by and somehow not seen hundreds of times, turned out to be an Aladin’s cave of treasures. A nearly complete line up of Guerlain’s from the 1980s, numerous other vintage and hard to find fragrances. I almost had to sit down inside, my little heart was beating so hard.
Here were perfumes I had never seen with my very own eyes. Parure extrait and Eau de Parfum, Liu Parfum de Toilette, Guet-Apens even…
But without further ado, here are the ones that went home with me. I’m a lucky and a happy girl indeed.
Shalimar has been a long-time favorite and I have been looking for an older extrait for a while.
And here comes Vol de Nuit:
Look out for two separate reviews of Vol de Nuit EdT and the extrait (by Tara) scheduled for next week.
Shiseido’s Feminité de Bois has been transferred into the Serge Lutens line, but in a reformulated version and in Eau de Parfum concentration only.
I always longed for the original version of Feminité de Bois, finding the parfum version was a dream come true.
And here is the whole happy family together.
