This review is for the urn parfum from Paris. It's beautiful. It is a smoothed-out green fragrance of being outdoors; it has the stunning Caron base. I would love to have a decant of this. ...

I am not especially fond of citrus-heavy perfumes, but I do like Alpona! It was introduced in 1939 for the World's Fair in New York, and it must have been quite daring in its day. It's daring (for...

What I learned from Alpona: If you stick too closely to your little list of favorite notes, you just might miss some of your best-ever fragrances. I never got around to trying this particular Caron...
