I have been fascinated by these bottles since I was a little girl.
I remember Joy by Jean Patou was my mom's favorite scent.
The smell reminds me of her.
I have a memory as a little girl, I used to mix different food coloring in water to put in my mom and grandmother's empty perfume bottles in the garage.
Oh, then I found Jean Patou 1000 - Actually my friend JR introduced me to this one.
Love at first sight.
I collect perfume bottles
I use the bottles when I entertain, I cut flowers and greenery in them.
scattered among the candles on my dining table.
It takes just a little greenery and a flower.
These are a few of my favorites I use today.
Chanel No. 5
Kelly Caleche by Hermes
Vetiver by Guerlain
Yves Saint Laurent, Rive Gauche
My friend, Julia Riva, who introduced me to Jean Patou 1000, did this fabulous painting for me. As you can see it has the bottle, joss paper, all the things I adore.
Scent is the one sense that bring back the when & where.
I remember the person who was wearing it and how I felt immediately.
Tell me about your favorite perfume, I love to hear from you!
(who knows maybe I will find a new perfume)
Have a lovely weekend!
