Fendi's Fendi (EDT, 1985)

Paco Rabanne, La Nuit

(The latest in my collection of “old skanks” such as Elizabeth Taylor Passion and Rochas Femme)

24 Faubourg
Created by Maurice Roucel 1995

The down-side of all this perfume exploration is the heart-break you feel when you finally experience a complex scent like Mitsouko and think back with regret all the wasted years you could have owned it and let it be a part of you. 178 more words
