The Christmas mail overload was to blame that I found another lovely gift in the mail only yesterday, but I couldn’t be happier anyway.
What better way to greet 2011, than smelling of Shalimar that is 43 years old?
My friend and fellow blogger Danielle from Oregon, was so generous as to send me samples of several concentrations of her vintage (1967) Shalimar collection as well as a large sample of vintage L´Heure Bleue.
I really appreciate her kindness. Blogging has opened so many new doors for me and I met lovely and like-minded people, who are generous to boot.
I will endeavor to compare all the different incarnations of my beloved Shalimar, in a post soon.
Thank you very much, Dee. Happy New Year! 🙂
P.S. Dee also included a decant of Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine. I must confess that I had never heard of it before. It turns out to be a lovely gourmand scent, that seems to be ideal for layering purposes. I like it.
