Si Magnifique!

si magnifiqueI got this at Åhlens in Stockholm, a blind buy based on price and description and the (unusually chatty for a Swede) saleswoman’s advice, and didn’t open it until I got back to the States…
…where it smelled like every Victoria’s Secret store distilled into a bottle. Entirely too girlish sweet almond, rosebuds and muted citrus with some obligatory white musk underneath.
On my early twenties daughter-child it became Earl Grey tea in a rose-patterned china cup, elegant and perfect.
Dammit, I’m old.
