Thanks, Reminiscent. Very kind of you to comment. I've written a few more, including Black and Heritage that I hope to get posted in a day or two. Those 2 plus Shalimar together are really one notion, one thought applied to 3 perfumes. On a bit of an amber kick lately.
I think we may be the only two people here who have obviously found something in L'Heure Fougueuse! I guess it will appear in the Directory at some point . . . great stuff.
I'll try and track down L'Heure Promise next time I'm in there but don't hold your breath, Cartier had only a handful of samples left when I was there a fortnight ago, I was after XII but no go on that one. I bought L'Heure Defendue, BTW - never thought I would spring for something with cacao but I love this one now. Cheers!
Bonjour Cher Ami--tous mes remerciements de votre encouragement: je suis heureux de savoir que mes "revues" ainsi que ce "thread" vous amusent! Malheureusement cette histoire revele une verite tragique: La nouvelle edition de Jicky est lamentable. Je ne m'en remets pas, c'est une tragedie. Au moins, on a su en faire une tragi-comedie, histoire de s'amuser, et d'en rire!--que peut-on faire d'autre?
Tres amicalement, MDM.
