a convergence of tea time thoughts for ladies

Floris Edwardian Bouquet

imageA popular perfume in the early 1900s that is still around; reformulated of course.    I like it.   This sample I have- don’t know if it’s vintage or modern, but it does remind one of another era.    I like green moss in  perfumes; a little goes a  long way and is what’s  in the base, along  with amber and sandalwood.    It is a floral chypre.

This one I’d like to have in  a used bottle, with  1/2 or 1/4 in it.    I’d like to wear it when watching period movies from the late 1800s or early 1900s- I should have worn it while reading  Cranford recently and watching the PBS  series of it since there’d be no better time to wear period perfume than to be in the midst of a Victorian book or movie.

Galbanum is in the heart note which alone is bitter,  yet blends well with the hyacinth, jasmine and lily  (photo below- hyacinth, jasmine, lily).
