Happy Antiquities Friday! (It’s also Marc Jacobs’ birthday, National Unicorn Day, National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day and National Winston Churchill Day. And, RIP Prince Philip.) Our community project for today: wear the oldest scent you own (you can interpret this as you like — the one you’ve owned the longest? worn the longest? the earliest launch date? whatever). Thanks to pyramus for the idea!
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
I’m in vintage Diorissimo, the fragrance I’ve worn the longest, and possibly one of the oldest bottles in my collection as well, although it’s hard to say for sure.
Reminder: 4/16 will be Spring clean! Wear the perfect fragrance for doing household chores. Suggested by LisaD.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2021, where I’ll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
Note: the vintage Dior brooch from the 1950s (“One of the most iconic images of the House of Dior, this delicate and highly feminine ‘Lily of the Valley’ or ‘Muguet’ brooch is the work of the artisan workshop Maison Gripoix, made of poured glass, nacred pearls and gilt metal. ‘Lily of the Valley/Muguet’ is the signature perfume of the House of Dior, and one of Christian Dior’s favorite flowers.”) was going for a little over $2000 on 1st Dibs but is currently sold out.
