I knew this day would come...

...but I never thought it would come so soon. Sigh.

Her favorite bottle is Après l'Ondée. I would have expected something more colorful. Must be the texture or the way light glints off the little nubblies all over the bottle.

In any case, good choice.

SO cute. Apres L'Ondee? Clearly, she's got your good-perfume-taste gene!

That side cabinet is gorgeous btw! Haven't seen pictures of your collection in ages, but always loved looking at it and trying to identify all those bottles! Maybe you can indulge us with pictures in another post sometime soon =)

Thanks A. Know what her other favorite bottle is? Acqua di Parma Mandorlo di Sicilia. We may have another little almond lover on our hands. :-)

My displays haven't changed, except they've become a little more crowded. I'll take some pics soon and post.

Good to "see" you, as always. {{{{{{{{{{{A}}}}}}}}}}}}

And she is just like her mother: tall, beautiful, and a lady with good taste!

Enjoy your daughter, K!

Absolutely adorable. A woman who knows what she wants (as evidenced by the bottles she tossed aside and threw on the rug, and thank goodness it's carpeted!) and goes ahead and gets it!

Hmmm... get a good padlock, quick! LOL! She's soooo tall already, isn't she? Lovely.

(I can't stand Après l'Ondée. *running away*)

Can't stand Après l'Ondée?!? *gasp*

Is it the cold iris? I know you can't stand Iris Silver Mist either.

ROFLMAO! Listen, it could be so, so much worse. When my daughter discovered the perfume shelf (and I discovered how tall she had become), she poured a 3/4 full bell jar of Rahat Loukhoum on the Berber carpet of my Canadian landlord. We were smelling it for a month, which at least meant I wasn't yearning to replace it.

She even put it BACK on the shelf and replaced the stopper. So the whole thing was evidently some kind of chemistry experiment.

Hope you are well, btw. :)

I suppose it must be, WW. Also violet, orange blossom and vanilla are some of my least favourite notes. I know I wear Fleurs d'Oranger but to me it's mostly jasmine, tuberose and spices.

Anyway, it's very sad because for years and years Après L'Ondée wasn't available at all and I so wanted to sniff it: a very nice actor I liked, who had very good taste, said somewhere that he wore it (he must have been left a stash by someone) and I thought, 'If he likes it, it must be really nice.' And then a few years ago I suddenly saw a small bottle of it at Harrods, jumped on it, tried it and went, 'Blech!' LOL!

I do get annoyed when I'm made to feel (not here) that I can't possibly know anything about perfume because I can't appreciate Iris Silver Mist or Après l'Ondée. It has happened. Perfume is subjective. Period.
