Memories of dark green
Last week I was able to participate in the Le Galion walking letter, thank you so much, Susan.

Delving into the scents and the information about the company has uncovered memories:
At the age of 14-16, in the mid 70's, I had a Canadian pen pal.
We had met while visiting my relatives in Vancouver. (Touch of romance) Afterwards, at Christmas, in his package was this perfume. According to the accompanying letter, my pen pal had sought advice on which perfume would be suitable for a "young lady".

At that time I had virtually no idea about perfume. There was 4711(myOma, always) and Tosca (my mother, but only on special occasions)
From Chanel N°5 I had at least heard before (Marilyn Monroe)
Anyway, I tried the perfume full of anticipation, and immediately recoiled in horror and shock.

Today I know it was the aldehydes and the lilac right at the beginning.
I still have trouble with aldehydes today, as I do with lilacs:
On bush in the garden very much like, indoors in the vase less, and in perfume rather not!
While I was already thinking about the wording for the thank-you letter, Grandma came into the room and got big eyes: oh, what smells so good here?

She was allowed to taste of course, and to her the fragrance fit perfectly! He nestled down, melted into her skin and surrounded her like an aura.
Today, color-wise, she would be called a "Snow White type": Light skin, large dark eyes, and luscious dark naturally wavy hair into old age.
One of her favorite colors in clothing was dark green. This very dark, cool pine green, which makes most look pale, highlighted her assets perfectly.
Of course, I gave her the bottle, and for a long time associated the fragrance with the color dark green. Or vice versa.
