Fluted mini Balenciaga, on a quilted box.

This little vintage sparkly gem is a chypre plum that opens spicy, with sharp cardamom and warm cloves. Italian prunes and jasmine sweeten it up for a bit, but then amber and oakmoss turn it almost sour, like wine that’s been uncorked too long.

The lovely fruity floral notes linger longer on clothes than skin–this one might be better on scarves.
