I got a small tube of Marvis Jasmin mint while in Europe when I ran out of what I had packed. Being a perfumista, I had to try some! I love the idea of unorthodox flavors—they have licorice and ginger to name but two others.

Vintage hound that I am, anything newer than 1980 strikes me as new. I bought Balahé blind, based on its notes. I'm now revisiting it—it strikes me as a cold weather fragrance and we've had soem winter her—with the experience of a Weil rarity, Noir, under my belt.

Oh, I am in love with this stuff! I don't get jasmine; maybe my nose has not caught up with all of jasmine's shape-shifting qualities. What I get is black locust—mistakenly referred to as acacia by some—a tree I grew up with whose blooms are powerful and honeyed.

hesterC is 100% right. My daughter bought me Panthère in EDT some years ago because it reminded her of when she was a little girl and I would come home late from orchestra and slip into her room to give her a kiss. She called the smell "cold perfume" and sought out a frag to match the memory.
