I'm burrowing into the flannels and wools on a rainy and cold day, and a perfect spiced scent to go with them.

Feeling hygge makes me miss Marand. I wish he'd come back.

Rive Gauche

Holy cow, Cevenol has an art print of a collage of perfume boxes on his wall. For that he ought to win... something.
Megara by Le Galion. edt.

Well, hello there Megara! You're a face I don't think I've seen around here before.

Can anyone tell me what kind of plant that is printed on its box?

It looks like hemp to me 😬

Oooh. I love vintage Le Galion but I've never tried this one. What did you think of it?

It's by Paul Vacher's daughter...
It's a heady, Green Chypre, for sure. More herb than flowers. Had some 'Fairy Liquid' notes for a short while. My post covid nose isn't as sharp as it was. Later, the flowery base-notes made a bold appearance.

I always enjoy seeing vintage-scent-of-the-day posts. I've been wearing Antaeus for several days in a row now, meditating on differences in the bottles.

And trying to extrapolate the findings to better understand perfume, perfume collecting, and the meaning of life.

It's not a print, it's a great collage out of my vintage boxes that my daughter made.
Send me yours I'll ask her to make you one :)

The picture is crappy, I should ask Aero to take a good one, his picture are so good!

Oh wow. Even better!

Very kind of you, but I like to keep my boxes intact. You never know when you might have to sell off the family silver to pay the mortgage on the farm. :)

That would be a great project that all of us can do with our left over boxes.

Wasn't somebody on here just looking for Halston Catalyst within the past couple of days?

Papsi has one for sale in the Marketplace, for $1/ml:
I’ve almost bought it a few times just to have a test tube to go with my Erlenmeyer flask, but better to let someone else have a shot. The seeker has her own Catalyst thread; maybe post it there, too.

Very, very nice ! I'd like too keep my boxes intact, as Cook.bot said, so I'm going to scan the boxes, and then make this kind of collage.

Bugatti by Ettore Bugatti.
(To me this is a "freshie." A leathery freshie! The hesperidic notes are among the most vibrant I've encountered.)

Hello, Redfish365 ! I don't know if you've already read it, but very interesting:
