It always gave me headaches to Migraines. Compared with the real scent in my garden it is the worst scent I ever tried. I don't get anything from any scent of Penhaligons. Well...
Got it got it got it... and it is gorgeous ! I only peeked in, as I will suprise (!!) myself with this book for Xmas. Mine smells good, only lightly from the printing ink ( which is kind of a perfume to me, as I am biblio-maniac) and the typically scent of a hard-glazed (term?) paper binding, so it is totally normal for me. The photos are to die for ! Barbara, if you might like to contact my privately- I have some news and perhaps samples of "old stuff" to share with fellow lovers of the old and yummy stuff :-)) Merry Xmas to all, Martina

Well - I did not find THIS one, but I got a Guerlain "Rosebud" Flacon "Chamade", still sealed ,for a steal. I do not even dare to tell you what I paid... was my lucky day, together with two sealed bottles of Guy Laroche FIDJI. YUmmmm. Pictures soon on my Blog, of course. Wishing a cosy 4th of Advent !

I am on a vintage-perfume-exhib tomorrow, where collectors sell what they do not longer want to keep. I will have an eye open. And a list with my wishes for Xmas... BTW - I found two "miniatures" in German Ebay.

Are you aware that this kind of post triggers me ( old bookseller back then in some year a.D.) to hurry over to Amazon, order this book asap - and install a good French dictionary on this laptop here :-)) For me a Christmas without books (AND perfumes!) is not worth the trouble - so this will be a book for me for sure. THANK you so much for finding it AND writing about it !

It is here ! I will post a photo soon in my Blog - two cutest small 5ml bottles, very neat ! I took a short sniff only yet, with a little on the back of my hand - and it is heavenly, fresh, green almond-y and later very seductively sweet. Just as you described it ! I will dive into it more deeply over the weekend, I hope. It certainly is not comparable to Youth Dew, IMO, as the latter is sweeter and creamier. Two very different scents.

I did already post in my blog about the Secret with the Antilope scent( http://duftreise.blogspot.com/2010/11/antilope-weil-secret-de-venus.html ). The fine thing is that the bottle is full, and in a beautiful state, so it does not really bother me if I like this scent or not - it is a nice addition to my collection anyway. I will give it a try again in a few days. I am waiting for an other one , a smaller size, to arrive in the mail soon- then I will compare the fragrances. The NOIR by Weil is for me literally uknown by now - except that I found notes about the year of creation. What I can say on first sniff is that it seems to be a rather tart scent with lots of hidden secrets, scent-wise too. I will surely post when I know more. kind regards, Martina http://duftreise.blogspot.com/

Oh my ! You got my all nervous and curious, as I won a small miniature of this in the Bay lately, which has not yet arrived at my desk here. I _do_ have the Antilope SoV - and I wrote about it in my perfume blog. It was not utterly pleasant and I did not like the smell of Antilope at all. I am intrigued by the Weil perfumes though, and Zibeline has proved as a favorite of mine. The old EdT as well as the Extrait. Simply wonderful and I faint with pleasure when I have it on. BTW - do you know anything about a WEil perfume named "Noir"? I am seeking "desperately" for detailed info, but can't find any. kind regards, Martina http://duftreise.blogspot.com/

I love these old Patou perfumes. Thanks for reminding me. Unfortunately I once swapped the miniatures collection for two "real" flacons with original juice inside. I still miss them.... kind regards,Martina
