I believe this is from the 1940’s, it’s pure perfume. I opened the packaging but not the bottle and it smells wonderful! It reminds me of my Aunt Deola, a rich woman she dressed impeccably, tall blonde and incredibly put together. I remember her outfits make-up and hand bags. Her perfume would always permeate her surroundings especially her scarfs, and her luxury car with it’s slick seats. I remember peering into her bedroom wondering what it must be like to have such a selection of extravagant items in my reach. I can imagine this perfume on her dressing table! The perfume has that strong amber, musky oak moss kind of smell. Spicy with a bit of real leather expensive car smell from bygone days. It’s Such a treasure I’m going to keep it on my desk for now while I think pleasant thoughts of riding around with my mom and rich Aunt! 🙂 xo

I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
