Decants–updated April1

In efforts to replete the treasury, I am now offering decants of vintage perfumes, hard to find perfumes and  anything I find interesting and shareworthy.  I’ve based cost on what I got the bottle for plus the expense of the vials/bottles etc.  Shipping is 6.00 which includes insurance and confirmation.  Leave a comment and we will arrange details of the transaction.  Paypal preferrred, though other forms of payment, i.e. checks and cash accepted if arranged. 

    all decants available in 1 ml, 1.5 ml 5 ml and 10 ml containers.  I have also gotten prettier packaging 🙂 

VINTAGE FEMME – – one of the listed bombshell perfumes, this classic is sultry, slightly sweet and all curves.  see review notes: peach, plum, bergamot/lemon, cinnamon,cloves, jasmine, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, amber, vanilla, musk 12/ml

PARFUM DELRAE AMOUREUSE — this is one of my favorites.  It’s warm, seductive and perfect all year, Wearing it is like making love in a field of daisies under a perfectly blue sky.  Application to drydown changes from bright to floral to warm woodiness.  Harder to find, but a real treasure.  notes:  Tangerine, cardamom, French tuberose, French jasmine, Tahitian ginger lily, cedar, moss, sandalwood, honey.  see review $4/ml

PARFUM DELRAE BOIS DE PARADIS — Luca Turin went nuts over this composition.  Some gt jammy berries and spice, however I compare it to mulled wine and a bit of pumpkin pie somedays, and spices with warm florals other days.  Stunning a great pick for the cooler months though summer heats up the spice and florals for a surprisingly delightful warm weather wear.  notes: citrus, french rose, blackberry, fig, spices, woods, and amber $4/ml

Del Rae Body Creams in Bois de Paradis and Amoureuse 5/ml

Gucci EDP I — see my review of Gucci’s Coochie.  It is slightly sweet, cuminy musky goodness.  Vanilla Absolute, Heliotrope, Citrus, Orris, Thyme, Orange Blossom, Cumin, Musk. see review 3.5o/ml

Gucci EDP II — A bit more fruit in the update, but still plenty of musk and sweet sexiness.  Plus, it’s pink!  Mandarin, Bitter Orange, Black Currant, Violet, Blackberry, Jasmine, Heliotrope, Cedarwood, Musk  3.50/ml

WORTH COURTESAN — a really incredible perfume (google some reviews, and I’m working on one too)  It’s very hard to find, and technically only available in Europe.

PATOU JOY EDP — one of the most classic and beautiful perfumes to be had Bulgarian rose, ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine from Grasse and May rose  2.25 a ml

VINTAGE FRACAS — SOOO hard to find.  Imagine the modern Fracas amplified and sexified.  there’s a saltier, more womanly bit to this stunner.  This was HARD to come by, so it’s quite expensive.  However, it’s an olfactory experience everyone should have before they die.  bergamot, orange blossom, greens, peach, tuberose, jasmine, violet, iris, lily of the valley, carnation, sandalwood, musk, oakmoss, and cedar.  I have a very limited supply, only 5 ml left.  16.00 a ml

BOIS DES ILES  – – Chanel perfection!  There is much controvery whether or not it is to be discontinued in parfum strength, so for those of you who cannot track down a Chanel boutique, get a decant.  It’s too wonderful to pass up.  jasmine, damask rose, ylang-ylang, bitter almond, gingerbread, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood, vetiver.  see review 24/ml

Cuir de Russie  – – This is one of my personal favorites.  I have this in heavy rotation, the ylang-ylang is to die for in this composition.  It can be a little naughty, a little nice, but very sophisticated and simply beautiful. Bergamot, Balsams, Spice Bush, Incense, Cade Wood, Rose, Jasmine, and Ylang-Ylang.  20/ml

** Parfum Sacre EXTRAIT **  I JUST got this in, after much searching and much self flagellating at the cost.  But it IS WORTH every penny.  google some reviews… I almost do not have words for this… it’s rose incense myrrh musk, It surrounds the wearer in a mysterious veil, yet is has been referred to as a comfort scent.    Must try before you die if you even just kinda sorta like the other strengths of the perfume, the extrait will blow your mind.  vanilla, myrrh, civet, cedarwood, lemon, pepper, mace, cardamom, orange blossom, rose, jasmine, and rosewood   I only have a little to spare….see review 30/ml

Vintage Vent Vert — an interesting composition, see review next week.  12/ml

Molinard Cloches de Noel Xmas Bells vintage extrait—  extremely rare and hard to find, it’s like a Caron light.  haunting and melancholy, though a must try. notes :carnation, clove rose, leather, woods and a little musk.  a few unidentifiables.  see review 10/ml

CHANEL CRISTALLE EDT — lovely, green floral chypr, perfect for spring and summer spraying.  It’s elegant, cool and sparkly some people get a little leather and cumin out of  this spring green chypre. A perfume wardrobe must. notes: lemon, bergamot, rosewood, jasmine honeysuckle, hyacinth, oakmoss, vetvier.  see review 3/ml

MISS DIOR VINTAGE EXTRAIT —  oooohh DIVINE GORGEOUS green womanly chypre perfection.  I reviewed this recently, and it’s a favorite of Luca Turin too.  My bottles were practically never breathed on and are in what I think is pristine state of juice.  it’s green, a little leather, some animalic, some floral elegance and all kinds of goodness. should not be passed up.  notes Sage, Gardenia, Galbanum, Rose, Neroli, Jasmine, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Cistus and Labdanum  13/ml, limited supply
