  1. Thankyou Zubeyde for giving me one of these bottles. I only tried it properly on the skin yesterday for the first time.

    Gorgeous for the night : it really soothed me

    • I stand corrected !

      ( can’t be arsed to change the piece though).

      Have you smelled any of these perfumes ?

        Lol. It’s your space dear, you rule it 😉
        I haven’t tested any bc I wasn’t willing to blind buy an old (vintage) perfume that I have no info whatsoever about, and at ludicrous prices.

    That’s a helluva cool label. The contents sounds golden-slumber-inducing. Glad it worked for you. I would love to own a bottle for all sorts of reasons.

    • I think the bottle is gorgeous actually. What other reasons? The idea of a perfume house founded by a Japanese prince (Kuni) is also quite appealing I think.

      • Robin

        That idea for sure, and also the idea of the quality of it, and the venerable age combined with relative freshness. Also just the fact that it’s Japanese and vintage. I don’t have anything even close!

      • It IS very nice I will confess. But extremely similar to No 5/ Interdit so in a way, inessential. There are SO many 5 rip offs in this world!

    I am visiting my parents in the USA and my mom gave me some old drug store goodies she got in the 70s (Jontue, Emeraude, Babe). She also gave me an unopened bottle of Scherrer 2. It helped me sleep so deeply on my second night here when I was a bit unsettled. I loved the fruity and floral blend, both in so much harmony. I usually spend my last 2 days in the USA trying niche fragrances in NYC, but this year I just might skip the sniffathon.
