I wish all of you a Great Christmas and as I'm very curious to know what you are wearing for Christmas, feel free to leave a comment.

Edit at Christmas Eve: Mr Parfumistas SOTD is the incredible Chypre Mousse from Oriza L.Legrand. A perfect match to this rainy and green Christmas (green lawns and roses outside).

  5. Merry Christmas, Marguerite.

    Impressive list, I don't have information going back that far.
    I'm trying to decide right now what to wear - we're leaving for our friends' house for dinner in couple of hours.

  6. And looking on the list of your waredrobe http://undina.com/my-perfume-portrait/ I'm convinced your choice was exellent. From what I feel right know, I would have choosen Cruel Gardenia or Encens Mythique d'Orient.

  7. Quintaesensia sounds like a lovely choice! I wore Guerlain Myrrhe & Delires, a bit predictable, but still a good choice I think, especially considering we were 9 persons crammed into my in-laws little house, I didn't want to wear anything that smelled too much :)

  8. M&D is a perfekt choice discrete sort of refreshing in the same time as it evokes the spirit of Christmas.Wish you a Happy New Year!
