My pleasure, Mona! I'm very happy to have helped. :hug:

I also have to put in a word for Diamond, which I got in my order. It's an elegant, subtly sexy grapefruit, sweeter and warmer than The Countess without being candy-sweet, and one of the winners from my retour order. Vega is another new love from my order, but it's the more girlish cotton-candy fruity side of grapefruit.

My apologies to your bank account! :wink:

Wow, that is great to know!!! This generous window is appreciated. The last retour with Fabienne was frantic...it was every scent previously produced in like...2 weeks!!! Bless her. She stirred us up but good! :madamex:

My order came in,( super fast shipping, too) and so far Vega, quantum interconnect and the countess smell amazing in the bottle. ( Petticoats was spot on!) Georgetown is now my new favorite. I hope it ages well, cause I'm placing another order or two before the retour goes away.
On a related note, how are y'all storing these? My collection has really bloated.
Thanks again, Petticoats!

You're so welcome! I'm delighted that I was able to steer you toward some new loves. :frolic:

For storage, Boudicca told me about some lidded wooden boxes at Target that I use for my 10ml bottles. I'm not sure they're still in stock; it's been more than a year since I bought them. I've also got some semi-opaque plastic lidded containers from Target that are bigger and hold more bottles but are shallower. For display I use a tiered nail polish stand I got from Amazon.

Have fun with your new possets!

Thank you, Petticoats!
I will look for the boxes. (Just added Romanee, Mink Hairshirt and Knight to the Georgetown re-order. Y'all are enablers) I am so glad Retour is being spread out like this, I can't imagine how people could choose back when Fabienne did it all at once.

Speaking for myself, it was a wild panicked elated orgy of spending. :fez:

Romanee-Conti is a love of mine! I hope you love it too.

I am not sure I can write any more reviews. I am currently sitting here wearing Alisoun, Romanee-Conti, Betelgeuse and The Trobiaritz. I have lost track of which one is where. Overall, I smell amazing.

As an aside, I often wondered how the heck Cambiennes could work. I used to think it would be like color-mixing, where you just get a sludgy brown, or like music, where too many things mixed together can sound like white noise, or cacophonous, but I'm starting to think that this isn't true for scents? Although I have had perfumes where certain notes "clashed" terribly for me--lime and honey, for example. So maybe they can be out of sync. Or maybe it has more to do with the individual nose. In the meantime I will enjoy this Alicontibetelritz.

ETA: Ooh boy. I am going to have to plunk down some serious cash for full bottles. I talked myself out of it last time, and later regretted it. Dang.
