Looking back through our correspondence over the last year makes me smile. We were both so much younger then, weren't we?
Finally getting around to sampling the Frédéric Malle line was very exciting for me. I was so stuck on my dislike for Musc Ravageur (it comes up in almost every exchange mentioning Malle!), that I had a hard time moving on.
I had remembered reading Basenoters boasting about certain perfumes that lasted over several days -- through showers and, presumably, leaving the house and living life (though one is never sure with some of those guys). And I scoffed. Until I sprayed Musc Ravageur and after a day I still smelled it all over everything. I almost chewed off my own leg to escape. (Luckily, I figured out losing a leg wouldn't make any difference in this case.)
Here I am puzzled by my MR rants and then I go on another one. There's something wrong with me.
It's funny reading your praise of biehl parfumkunstwerke mb03 and realizing you've barely mentioned it since you first bought it. Of course, my emails are filled with praise for things I can't find on the shelf a month later.
Can you find mb03 on your shelf? Without any shuffling or delay? Or is it the little plastic Barbie carrying case you got after you had the Barbie Country Camper?
Well, Mr. Snarkypants, as it happens, mb03 is one of the few bottles I have that's more than half empty. And in the even more exclusive group of perfumes that I loved so much that I finished and bought second bottles? Comme des Garçons Avignon, and your favorite: Musc Ravageur!
Y'know, I never had any Barbie vehicles/houses/horses. Just the Barbies. And a couple plastic carrying cases. I would have loved one of those pink dune buggies. I improvised with a toy truck left behind by one of my older brothers, and ended up with Dyke Barbie.
