Perfume is my addiction (along with food :P ). I bought somewhere along the lines of 40 bottles last year alone but I have had to slow down as storing them has become a problem.
I love the classics, although some of them aren't what they were in days gone by, I adore them.


Some of my all time favourites are Mitsouko, L'Heure Bleue, Shalimar (of course :wink: ) and My number 1 is Guerlains Apres L'ondee.

I like to wear them seasonally, dry, spicy orientals for the cooler months and crisp, citrus and green for the warmer months.
Today I will reach for Miss Dior.

I store them in foam eskies in the wardrobe to keep them out of the heat, when it gets hot I bring them into the main part of the house where the air conditioning is on and they are all still in their original boxes as well.
If stored correctly perfumes last for years. There is a huge and I mean huge market for vintage perfumes. I know of people that have bought bottles from the 1920's and 1930's and they are as fresh as the day they were made.
In saying that I am sure that the odd bottle will turn but time will tell.

I admit I'm not a fan of Kouros, my current fav. for a man is Bvlgari Black, it is actually a unisex frag. and has a vanilla drydown like no other although with he warmer weather fast approaching it would get too cloying.

In summer I prefer the green and citrus scents, both on male and females.
For men something like Guerlains Du Coq or Annick Gouttals Hadrien Absolu.
For females I like Gres' Cabotine, Balmains Vent Vert or Lancomes O de Lancome.

So many frags, so little time :wink: .

What a mixture, variety is good, the only ones that I have out of your collection is Chanel No 5 in the parfum and I have Burberry Brit Red, rhubarb and vanilla, it's gorgeous. I haven't sniffed Miss Dior Cherie yet although I do have Miss Dior but I think they are totally different as far as I know.


Anyway I really love all this perfume talk but I have to jump in the shower and then of course choose my frag of the day :P .

Take it easy ladies, Sue.

Hi GI, the only Trussardi I have is called Inside, it's coffee and woody. :D .


This morning I have ended up with Guerlain Jicky, released In 1889 with notes of lavender, lemon, mandarine, bergamot and civet.
