a convergence of tea time thoughts for ladies

Oscar de la Renta

I just discovered  Oscar even though it came in 1977.    To me this fragrance is just like L’Air du Temps.   I  loved L’Air du Temps when it came about the same time as Oscar.   These two fragrances are a  great substitute for Chanel 5.   Chanel 5 isn’t strong enough for me as it was 25 yrs ago.

Its so light and feminine- the jasmine.  That’s what makes it so pretty.  All 3 of these perfumes have that in common, the jasmine and roses.   How can you wear Oscar  in blue jeans?  You have to have a dress on with Oscar, even if it’s a  casual one.

My husband asked if I just sprayed perfume and I said yes, did you want to smell those potato pancakes I just made?  (He doesn’t eat them) so I think he prefers the Oscar DE la Renta.
