Make a wish Monday!

Hello, dear Posse folks! Happy November and I hope everyone is doing well. And adjusting to the time change, for those of you in the U.S. I loved the extra hour of sleep but am dreading the early sunset that all this brings. Plus, over the years, I’ve noticed that the time change discombobulates a lot of folks, as I’ve seen more accidents, near-misses, etc., on the first day or two afterward.

Anyhoo, it’s my birthday today and DS is home from college for the weekend, so I haven’t got anything much, sniffing-wise. So I thought: What if the Perfume Fairy Godmother came to visit you today, and would grant you a full bottle of anything you wanted?

I would love to hear what your Holy Grail of fragrance would be. I thought long and hard what mine might be, and I couldn’t really come up with much. Except maybe if the kind fairy would give me a bottle of Chanel Coromandel or that precious little bottle of Bois des Iles extrait, I would be pretty ecstatic. (Of course, she would have to sneak it into the house — DH would go nuts if he saw me bring more perfume in, ha!!)

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Happiest of birthdays, Ann! I've been dying for a bottle of Chanel Cuir de Russie parfum -- either that or a bottle of vintage Vol de Nuit, in the propeller bottle.

Happy Birthday! Setting the clocks back....I hate that’s it’s totally dark now at 4:30. I would wish a bottle of Chanel 31 Rue Cambon to fall on my pillow overnight, dear kind fairy!

Omgosh, darling!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I've been in flux for awhile, so forgive me for not remembering!  Happy that your family will all be together for your special day!  xoxoxo

Happy Birthday! I would also like Hiram Green Voyage 2019. The first Voyage is one of my favorite perfumes but sadly my bottle is almost empty now.

Hmmmmm..... one of those giant Chanel Exclusifs bottles that I'm too cheap to buy but lust after.

A bottle of Hiram Green. Any Hiram Green. That's my unicorn right now.

Happy Birthday Ann...I hope you are having a great day!  My wish would be any bottle of Xerjoff as they are priced way over my limit and I have never owned one.

Happy birthday, Ann  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! I don't know if I have a holy grail perfume - there are so many I like.  Maybe Theorema, but I don't know whether there is any more to be had.  Otherwise I'd love to have the fairy bring me a bottle of the Andree Putman Preparation Parfumee (now called L'Original) that March just blogged about.  Such a lovely light natural smelling perfume, just the perfect thing sometimes.
