Vintage Thrills

...Finally tracked down a bottle of Prue Acton EDT from the 70s. Though there's just a smidge remaining I am so looking forward to smelling this again - it's rare as hens teeth!

Worst mismatch between fragrance name and scent?

...Miracle by LancĂ´me. Sorry, for me the only thing miraculous about this pleasant but essentially boring pink perfume with its non-descript bottle is its popularity. But hey what do I know!?

Vintage Thrills

...You are very lucky with your vintage perfume finds D, they never cease to amaze me. In the places we went antique trawling in the States what we mostly found was over-priced junk! Never came across any of those dusty old stores with old stock either :( Obviously you have the knack :)

Which company has done the most damage to the industry?

...In general terms, the dictomomy of pulp for the masses and "art" for the literate is no new thing. The "democratisation" of perfume and its accompanying slide from art-form to accessory, however, is a relatively recent phenomenon. Anything produced on an industrial scale is bound to suffer in terms of quality. But I still don't understand the logic in flooding the market with so many junk perfumes with such short lifespans. How do they make money?

What perfume have you bought recently?

...Haven't bought much so far this year, but I did just pick up some vintage "J'ai Ose" by Guy Larouche for 99c. Missed out on a couple of other things, but it's probably just as well. I have a lot of perfumes and these days I'm only prepared to chase absolutely must-haves.Haven't you done well Scentimental & DinD - can't believe you're really finsihed though D!
